Most of my day was spent test driving varying vehicles from different manufactures to see which one that I would buy preferably that day.
Two of the other places that I went to test drive were faster at copying my driver's license and handing the key over. Other makes had both pluses and minuses in their handling, comfort and driving vision clarity. I had a Honda Fit about 4 years ago and it did not take me long to get used to driving it. Once I get the undercoating done it should be more comparable with the quietness of the other makes.
I was only introduced to the General Manager - Pat Loehndorf so I did not list him in employees that I worked with. Same with the service,
as I probably will get my service done in Kamloops which is 1 1/2 hours closer to my home then Vernon.
Jennifer was friendly, fast and efficient with processing my purchase. She was aware of the limited time that I could be in Vernon, and
accommodated my needs very well. I made it to my scheduled pick up in the Fit before 18:30 - with 10 minutes to spare.
Gene said that the in store model would take time to get it out of the store for me to test drive it. He was aware of my needs to buy that day
and moving a few vehicles out of the way first would add too much time. He helped me unload my Nissan Versa so that I could get my new vehicle loaded faster.
I've since covered the front seats hopefully with an anti dog fur covers and got a long rubber foot mat to stop muddy paws from mucking up
the back seat floor boards. I'm waiting for the weather to cool a bit before getting the undercoating done.
