My husband and I purchased a 2006 Dodge Durango yesterday and would like to share our experience with you. There were several listings online that we were interested - at four different dealerships all over the island.
We set out at 9:00. This dealership, known for its "great sales", was not very helpful. We had a great car to trade in, but this particular dealership only wanted to give us half of what Kelly Blue Book said was a fair trade in price. We refused their deal and wasted 2 hours of our time. We then decided to check on the Durango.
Although Honda Windward was the third dealership we visited, we know now it should have been the first any only. When we were checking online advertisements we came across an 06 Dodge Durango Limited with low miles. This was exactly what we were looking for. The Honda Windward website was easy to use and hand this handy "Make an Offer" button, so we did. We received an email response from Bob Laudick quickly after we sent in our offer. We spoke a little after lunch and we were on our way to see the Durange. Once there, we were greeted coming in the lot, given direction on where to park, and sent inside to speak with the internet manager, Bob.
We took the Durango for a test drive through a residential area, down Kam Highway and onto the freeway, so we could better judge the handling and performance of the vehicle. Bob made sure we both drove the vehicle. After driving it, we knew it was the one we wanted to purchase. Unlike the "great sales" dealership, Honda Windward was willing to give us fair value for our trade. They also gave us a great deal on the Durango.
Once the numbers were settled, we went to see Louie Hecht in finance. Although we had already secured finance the night before, Louie was informative and helped us choose the right warranty for us.
Before we left the dealership I told Bob that I would definitely be telling everyone I know that Honda Windward was the best dealership on the island.
Thanks Bob Laudick and Honda Windward!
