I have been looking for a newer model car with a few features which were lacking on my 2012 Buick Verano. I definitely needed a rear camera, warning lights on the rear view mirrors, I needed the car to be 'dog friendly.'
I drove to Marquardt for an oil change and one of the Salesmen, Miguel Sanchez, approached me and very patiently went over the upgraded features on the 2015 Verano which I was looking at. As I was thinking of a vehicle with a higher sitting position and the 'feel' of a SUV, he offered me two test drives: one in the Encore (an overnight test trial), the other in a Denali which I drove home and back the next day without any pressure to purchase either model. I liked both of the cars I was shown; but having owned a Verano, I kept thinking perhaps I needed to test drive the newer model. It only took a drive once around the building and I was sold on it. Miguel answered many questions I had without wanting to be 'elsewhere.' Carey Lynch was present and gave me advice on leasing vs purchasing a vehicle because of my history of not wanting to maintain an aging car; and within minutes, she gave me prices to ponder! Then the leasing agent, Tim Holloway, explained the lease details in less than 10 minutes and answered a few questions that I was always curious about when leasing.
There are many extra benefits besides the red licorice snack jars when you buy from this dealership. A valet service, free car washes, a specific amount of time for included 'maintenance' and 'oil changes,' and friendly, unhurried service department personnel!!
Please stop in and visit this dealership! The waiting rooms on both levels are spotless and they have free sodas, TV, reading materials, and coffee!!
I will definitely return to Marquardt for any further purchases and I know from experience the 'wait time' for routine work can be excessive in some dealerships. Yet, not here!!
PS: Petsmart has a bucket and/or bench seat cover for your critter and the back seats in most models can be flattened for carrying a critter or a crate!!
