Client Experience: Bryan N, St Helena
St. Helena resident, Bryan, needed a new car with enough space to accommodate three young children in car seats. He called Cartelligent to help him avoid the traditional dealership experience and get a great deal on his new car.
Q. What made you realize it was time for a new car?
A: My wife and I found out that we were having a (surprise!) third child. With our other two kids still in car seats, neither of our current vehicles made sense for our growing family.
Q. How did you choose the Honda Odyssey?
A: I talked to a friend of mine who also had three children and he said it was hands down the best choice. My wife took some convincing, she was leaning towards one of the larger SUVs. We stopped by a Honda dealership on the way home from our first ultrasound, took one for a test drive and we were both sold.
Q. Why did you decide to use Cartelligent?
A: I'm from Marin so I grew up seeing Cartelligent plates everywhere and I know several people who have used your service. I also saw founder, David Shapiro, speak about a year ago and that convinced me that I should give you a call the next time I needed a new car.
Q. What did you like best about working with Cartelligent?
A: Everything! The personal service and attention, how streamlined the process is, and just how responsive my agent, Justin, was. Cartelligent made buying a new car feel like doing business with a friend.
Q. What surprised you about the Cartelligent car buying experience?
A: I didn't expect the car to arrive so quickly or the process to involve so little of my time.
Q. What would you tell a friend about us?
A: Don't ever buy a car from a dealership again. Do yourself a favor and stop researching on the computer and just call Cartelligent. They'll talk you through the pros and cons of whatever models you're considering, give you personal advice and help you get a great deal on your new car.
