On the 15th of January, 2019, I walked into Westgate Chevrolet to speak to the friendly and professional Matthew Kolba. Upon entering the showroom, I entered into an atmosphere of professionalism and style: Camaros, Silverados, Malibus and more adorned the floor, as well as friendly staff.
The vehicle selection, application, and final signing process was quick and painless. I was looking for a small crossover/SUV, as I am a new father and needed a safe, reliable family vehicle. After looking at a few '18/19 Trax and Equinox models, I fell in love with the 2019 Trax Redline. The few but eye-catching red accents really made this Trax stand out from the rest, including the 'Premier' model. The interior was beautifully styled and comfortable!
After looking at a few options and an AMAZING price with 0 down, plus the current Costco promotion and a brief chat with the Finance Manager Perry McFarlane, a deal was made and I became the new owner of that Trax!
In the first few weeks of ownership, I have learned a few things, mostly that I will never, ever again have to go outside and manually start my vehicle, as my command start works perfect from the comfort of my warm bed. Even better, through OnStar, I can start my Trax from the middle of downtown Edmonton and have it warm and ready by the time I return to my shop. It even has it's own 4G LTE Hotspot and Android Auto, which literally projects your phone's GPS onto your touchscreen!
The Trax has been incredibly easy to drive. With AWD, the recent ice and snow that is typical of Canadian winters (but absent from this one, until recent weeks) were little more than petty nuisances. The steering is literally effortless and the fuel economy, even with plenty of warm up time in the -30° to -40° weather is far better than I expected from an AWD. Upon my first fill up, with my gauge telling me I had 32Km until empty and my odometer reading 524Km, at $0.84/L, it cost me just over $30 to fill! Over 500Km with an AWD for just $30!
All in all, from start to finish and beyond, every expectation I had was exceeded! Ibwill definitely be buying here again and definitely from Matthew!
