LAWRENCE, KANSAS -- My wife decided she wanted to purchase a 2008 Toyota Prius. We check out the stock at all of the local Kansas City location, finally taking a test drive at Olathe Toyota. After thinking about it, and test driving a couple of other cars, she decided the Prius is what she wanted.
I contact our salesman at Olathe Toyota, asking about a specific model with a specific package...as well as negotiation room on the price. I was told they could have the the Prius we wanted within a week, but there was no negotiation on the price, period.
No other dealer in town had the model/package we wanted, so I tried Crown Toyota in Lawrence (a 45 minute drive). I sent an e-mail with the vehicle specifics and the price we were willing to pay. They responded that they had the exact vehicle we wanted on the lot, and even bigger....they were willing to accept our price offer.
We handled all of the loan paperwork during the day via fax. When we arrived, the car was washed & the tank was full. We spent less than 45 minutes signing the paperwork and going over the vehicle...then we were on our way.
All in all, on of the best experiences we have had purchasing a new vehicle. We will definitely recommend Crown Toyota to everyone who asks!
