Was working with another Nissan dealership in Florence, SC and the agreed upon car that was shipped was damaged during transport. The only options given by the manager was to take another color or pay an additional 1000 dollars to have another shipped in the color I wanted. (they were willing to cut the shipping cost to 500 but I said no). I was not going to pay more to get the car we agreed I would be getting. So I told them I will take a higher end model for a discount. They gave me a quote and I told him that was not good enough, and I gave him a number I thought was fair. He completely blew my number off and repeated the options he listed before. So, I stated calling around and worked with multiple Nissan dealerships in the region and came across Dick Smith Nissan of Columbia. More specifically I spoke with Joseph Rafail. He worked with me over the phone in a very timely manner getting various quotes and deals to beat the dealership in Florence. Eventually Joseph had a great offer lower than the "discounted price" the manager in Florence was offering.
I ended up not purchasing from Dick Smith, but not because they didn't provided great service. The manager in Florence caved and offered a deal lower than Joseph could reasonably compete with. BEST YET, the price the manager offered was even lower than the first price I told him I would pay for the higher end model to start with. MUAHAHAHAH!!!! Thanks Joseph for the help, and sorry I couldn't do business with you this time, but I will remember you when talking to others and for future purchases.
