After contacting all the dealerships in my area, Waikem offered me the most reasonable price for a lease of the 2019 Subaru Impreza. I mean about $20-40 cheaper(monthly) than the bigger dealerships!
I did all my negotiating via email and was impressed to see my salesman, Erik Bettinger, stick to it through the almost 2 month negotiation period. Most of the other dealers I contacted stopped communicating with me after 2 weeks of emailing, but Erik was patient and saw the deal through to the end. He was quite straightforward and presented me all the numbers I asked for without trying to hide any information or play games.
I was unhappy at first because Waikem increased the price of the vehicle I was working with and I was expected to pay a higher price than the original offer I was quoted from their website. But after a couple back and forth with Erik this was rectified and I got the vehicle at the price I wanted it!
Test driving and picking up the vehicle was a breeze. No one tried to talk me into purchasing any accessories I didn't want or need. My salesman, Erik Bettinger, was very professional while being friendly, and I enjoyed my overall experience of leasing from Waikem.
