For those shopping from out of town: A solid 7 out of 10. Almost everything was done via e-mail, and phone calls. We did get a great deal. Pro: Salesperson was extremely responsive. Paperwork was provided quickly and reliably. Was picked up from the ferry (although we had to ask). Cons: Was asked to sign the sale papers upon arriving. Only after we said we needed to see the car before were we taken to it. Not all the blemishes were disclosed to us despite asking several times. Very large deep scratch not shown in pictures or disclosed ($500 to repair). Worst - upon leaving we saw a wheel molding that was broken. A dealership of this reputation should have fixed it before selling. We were told to go home and send a quote and the service manager would most likely cover it. We trusted them. Quote sent - it is a $112 part. Hardly worth the effort, but this is something that should have been fixed before selling. We were told that after the salesperson was paid their commission there was nothing left. We are talking about $112. So after all that - if you live locally you might have better luck. If this review causes one potential buyer to go somewhere else then it costs them a significant commission/sale so is the $112 really worth it. Summary: Car is in great shape and we did get a great deal, but in the end the process did leave a sour taste
