When we came in to the dealership, it was our 4th auto dealer in two days. We had been to look at the Honda Pilot, Toyota 4Runner and Ford Explorer. We were looking for an Acadia SLE-2 which had what we thought we wanted. Our salesman, Monte, explained a lot of the features of the Acadia. He didn't have what we were looking for on the lot but told us he could get one for us without a problem.
After going home and comparing all the information we received from all the dealers, it came down to the Acadia and the Ford Explorer. The clincher was the cargo bed in the Acadia was bigger than the Explorer and Monte said he could match the trade-in offered by Ford for my Toyota Highlander. When we went back to see Monte to actually drive the car now that we had pretty much decided to buy it, he let us know that with the rebate offered on the SLT, we could upgrade to that for not much more than the SLE-2 and he had one there on the lot that we liked.
Monte made buying a new car a pleasant experience. He was knowledgeable about what options were available compared to what we were looking for and, I feel, put us together with the perfect vehicle.
We picked up the car 4 days ago and he has already been in touch to make sure we know that even though the sale was over, we could contact him with any questions that arise.
