Like most people, I generally loathe walking into the dealership to buy a car. Our last experience with purchasing a car, however, was devoid of headaches for the most part. The salesman was able to get us the vehicle we wanted at payments we could afford mostly by getting us top dollar for our trade-in.
In addition, the finance department was able to get us a good rate. Though, I think that had more to do with the fact we walked in with a pre-approved rate from our credit union. All in all, it was still a pleasant experience.
