I know that buying a car is not a fun process, especially when you know exactly what you want. There’s so much haggling involved, it’s at least an all day event, and you leave wondering how badly you were ripped off.
But when you know exactly what you want, it’s difficult to rely on the Carvana type services, because I watched for over a month and not a SINGLE Tiguan came into stock, much less the one I wanted.
So I let out a couple sighs, mentally prepared myself, and contacted a couple of dealers.
I’m here to tell you that I went to THREE different VW dealerships, and Kuhn is the one I ended up making my purchase from.
First, we went to Lokey in Clearwater, and it just didn’t feel like an organized operation. There were not any models of the vehicle we wanted in a place where we could easily get them out for a test drive, and that was basically the entire point of going to the dealership that day.
Next we went to Bert Smith, the one closest to us. We went on a test drive and had a really good time, but while the salesman was very knowledgable on the vehicle, he wasn’t too confident on the pricing. I expressed I was interested and left my information, and I was contacted via text. I thought this was convenient because I am definitely more a text person than a phone person, but the salesman wasn’t very responsive over this form of communication. I got a follow up email from the online sales’ manager and asked about the process of getting a vehicle from another dealer, since I didn’t want black leather interior and those are the only models they had. I never got a response.
Frustrated, I decided I would try taking the journey across the dreaded Howard Frankland bridge. But first, I inquired online so I knew I could meet with someone who could answer my questions and work with me on price.
Within a few minutes, I got a text from Austin. I told him I was very confident in what I wanted and how much I wanted to spend. We went back and forth so I knew exactly what I was walking into. When we got there, we were immediately out on a test drive and talking price. The vehicle they had in stock was the 4Motion, which I didn’t need, especially at a couple thousand more price tag. I told Austin my budget was firm, and exactly what color combination and everything that I wanted, and would come back if they got one. I got a call an hour later – he found the exact car I wanted in Brandon, and would have it delivered by the morning if I was serious. I was.
We rolled in on a Saturday morning. We immediately started talking price, came to an agreement, and they matched a trade in price I was offered at another dealer. Within an hour and a half from my arrival time, I was back on the Howard Frankland, and on my way home in my brand new Tiguan.
Austin was very knowledgable, and he was great at letting me know he wanted my business, without being too pushy. I never felt like I was being taken advantage of, or that I didn’t matter as a customer. Austin is truly an example that buying a new car doesn’t have to be a long or painful experience, even at a dealership
