Before I started shopping around for my new car, I did my homework, selected my vehicle, and performed extensive search on the internet to try to figure out the best price I can get. I also filled a few "Find your rebate!" forms, just to be curious about the type of results that these would produce.
I received a few pre-formatted typical responses. Landry was one of them. A few days later, M. Landry, the owner, sent me a personal email asking me if I needed a brochure in the most polite and respectful way. This was the trigger of many interesting mails exchanges.
First, I thought that this was a typical pitch response. So I played cards down with him up front. I told him the truth. I was a serious buyer, but a patient one, ready to be patient enough for the real deal, with a pretty good idea of what the real deal meant. He came back to me with a real deal up front, with a promise of "no surprises".
So I went to another dealer, and played the same cards down. Their response was highly enthusiastic! But their first, second, and third offer were way higher than the first price I got from Landry, and it was milked in such a confusing way that it was very difficult to determine the real price I was being enthusiastically proposed as a "pants down deal"... So then I thought, why waste my time...
Apart from this interesting history, the people I met at Landry, especially M. Landry, redefines the "dealership experience" as far as I am concerned. I have very good reasons to believe in my personal judgment of human nature, and I have an embedded alarm for those trying to rip you off while making you happy.... I can only say that my Landry Automobile experience made be put a big "trustworthy" sign on their forehead. Needless to say that this is a lifetime first.
Before you buy, do yourself a favor, and go see them!
