We stopped in at Velde GMC because we wanted to check on a Canyon. We’d seen a blue one online at a dealership north of us,but we didn’t want to drive that far. Velde had a red one that we could drive to give us the the “feel” of a midsize truck. I still wasn’t convinced that I wanted to give up our SUV for a pickup. The Acadia kind of sparked my interest. Again, the one that we were most interested in was seen online. We almost leased a 2018 Acadia for a much higher payment than we wanted to pay. Then, just before we made a huge mistake, Steve Yerbic and Kerrie Roos pointed out that there had just been some huge rebates issued on the 2017’s. They did a dealer trade on the unit we wanted and within 2 days, we drove our new Acadia home.
I have to tell you, we weren’t really ready to trade yet. We were just in the “shopping phase”. My husband really wanted a full size pickup until he road in the Acadia. Steve was such a good salesperson to work with. He seemed to have read our body language and it was obvious that he was treating us the way he would have wanted to be treated. I think what impressed me the most was when he realized we didn’t LOVE the Canyon immediately. It was as though he’d known me personally and said “ if you don’t LOVE it don’t buy it”. He is so right! That’s my thoughts on anything I buy, if I don’t love it- I’m never happy with it.
We spent quite a long time at the dealership from the time we first stopped to just look , up until delivery. I have to admit, it wasn’t all spent negotiating the purchase. That was done rather quickly. Most of our time was spent just visiting with Steve. You see, it was very cold & there weren’t many customers as silly as us that were out car shopping, so we were Steve’s only customers for awhile. This might not be important to some customers, but we truly enjoyed chatting and joking with this super funny guy!
