My last job required me to drive so much that every couple of years it seemed like I needed a new car. After losing my second car, I was stuck and called everywhere, searched car magazines, and bussed the entire King County determined to not buy until I got the best deal and exactly what i wanted (even though my work dep'd on me getting a car asap).
After getting high prices from Bill Pierre Chev., too much of a sales pitch from the credit guy at W.Seattle's big Chev. dealer, buying a car from Dodge of Bellevue that they later deemed unsuitable and took back (kudos to their principles), and calling every ad w/a great deal (to find that the car was sold last nite), I finally called Chuck Olson. After telling them, I was so fed up with bad pricing and car hunting that I would buy the car that night if they could price it right, they went the extra mile and found the most awesome deal for me. My salesman, Bill K., was so nice and never pressured me. He was always positive and made the wait most all new car buyers go thru pass quickly.
To this day, despite depreciation and the worry I need to tune my car up more than i do, I love my car, I love the deal they got me, and I'd even buy one of their Kia's (despite an ex boyfriend/car salesman telling me otherwise) just because they would be selling it to me. So, though they're technically located in Shoreline, WA (close enuf to Seattle)..i think they definitely fit the bill for a great place to buy a car (they also have a great service dept...they went out of their way to get me a new wheel specially designed to fit my car overnite w/out any extra charge and they send me svc reminders).
