JN Chevrolet-Mazda is located on Nimitz Highway, near the airport. The dealership is very easy to spot – simply look for the salespeople sitting at the edge of the road, waiting for cars to turn into the driveway. I’ve heard that one salesman was known to throw loose change on the sidewalk to attract passer-bys.
When I visited JN, it was after an abysmal experience at Cutter Chevrolet (see my review for the details). During this weekend, JN was running its “slash-it” sale, where an emcee would bring cars and customers together under a tent. It’s more show than anything else; the spotlight (and pressure) is turned on would-be buyers, many of whom probably could have negotiated a better deal in private rather than the public spectacle under the tent.
Lesson learned? If you attend a "slash-it" sale, be sure to do your research and know what a fair price is. Don’t believe what’s posted on the windshields.
Instead of joining the masses outside, we sat down with a salesman inside the dealer. Within an hour, we had negotiated a great price on a new vehicle, ignoring the nonsense occurring outside.
