My Review Of Bank Street Mitsubishi:
I was looking for a "cross-over" SUV, to replace my 2001 Subaru Outback ~ it really was time to change up! Anyway, we didn't want to be cash-poor for a new vehicle, so our criterion were (1) < $40K [on the road], (2) excellent safety record, (3) excellent warranty, (4) uses only Regular gasoline, (5) high gas mileage, (6) higher off the ground than our Outback [we're tired of hauling ourselves up out of a car], (7) good trade-in value, (8) 0% financing, (9) affordable payments, and (10) great "standard" package. We were planning on starting at a Kia dealership, just because we've seen so many of them on the road; but we parked at an adjacent Mitsubishi dealership instead; and we were also planning on checking Mitsubishi out, too because of the best warranty available ~ hey, if they are willing to offer 10 years/200K km; then they have a quality product that they believe in. So, we ended up in the Mitsubishi dealership on Bank Street, first and never left to look further. We were pretty stringent about our 10 criteria; and unbelieveably, the sales staff (Sam) was extraordinary.
Sam was very knowledgeable on the Mitsubishi vehicles, and also knew many of the competitive products available to us, too. He respected our wishes for what we were looking for in a vehicle, and showed us a very affordable way to get us into a vehicle that is perfect for us. He was not "pushy", as many car salespersons are reputed to be; he just treated us fairly, with the utmost of respect, and [really] listened to us. I like to think that we not only found a terrific salesperson, but also met a new friend that day. This was just on the day that we decided to buy a 2013 RVR.
On the day that we picked up our new RVR, Sam showed us expertly around the vehicle that he had gotten prepared for us (a couple of options to be added, as well as the usual inspection); of which the wait was only a few days. Additionally, he took us around the dealership to introduce us to PJ in Service, who already had us scheduled in for our first oil change/inspection for 8K kms later; and explained our maintenance plan to us, as well as the free shuttle service to/from work when I have service calls. Everyone was extremely professional and friendly.
On our first weekend of ownership, we drove to Toronto, then on to London and returned to Ottawa; putting approximately 1500 kms on the odometer. The RVR-GT is very comfortable to drive, it comes with a lot of cool bluetooth options ~ thankfully, Sam went through all of these with me so I didn't have to read the Owners Manual to become proficient with them. You don't need a key anywhere, except in your pocket; the radio [including 6 mths free satalite], CD [6 stacker], and hands-free for use with my iPhone all work flawlessly. I've never been so integrated, or n'sync with my vehicle before; so all this "standard" equipment is very cool.
Anyway, Sam and the dealership met all ten of our criterion, were super professional and friendly (not to mention respectful, and non-pushy ~ I mean it! ~ I guess you don't have to be pushy when you have a product that sells itself, and back it with a 10-year warranty). Oh, did I mention that they also gave me a $500 gas card? Sweet!
I highly recommend the vehicle (RVR), the dealership (Bank Street Mitsubishi), and especially the salesperson (Sam).
