My partner, Mac, and I were in the market to get a 2011 Civic 'coupe' for him after he'd driven my 2011 Civic 'sedan' enough times to appreciate the overall package of practicality, economy, and style the Civic offers. To be honest, I'm not as keen on the 2012's bodystyle, so timing was kind of a factor to take advantage of the few remaining new 2011's still available. So, I started my search on Edmund's and found that Honda of Oakland had four 2011 coupes in stock. I requested a quote and almost immediately heard back from their Internet Sales Manager, Art Russien. After having just bought essentially the same car just 5 months earlier, and having done my prior research, I already had my target price in mind, so I started the process of what has always been for me, the long and drawn out process of negotiation, but much to my amazement, my experience with Art was anything but. The process was so superfast and easy, that before I knew it, Mac and I had the keys to the new ride squarely in our mitts. Speaking of Art, he's the kind of guy you WANT to buy a car from. Not only is the dude funny as hell and easy to work with (you feel more like you're hanging with a friend than buying a car), but he's also super honest and straightforward. You won't get any of the B.S. that you've probably experienced when trying to buy a car. On the contrary, if you buy a car from Art, you will come away from the experience knowing that not only are you getting an extremely fair deal, but you'll want to buy all your future rides from him too, and you'll want to tell your friends.
