Expo Motorcars Compliment - From skeptical to satisfied!
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I read all these reviews before calling Expo, and even brought them up when I called. Tri (pronounced like 'tree', as I was informed by him) was extremely polite and professional. He assured me that the car I was inquiring about was exactly as it was pictured online: pristine. I told him it seemed too good to be true. A 2008 Lexus IS 250 with only 17k miles on it with ALL the bells and whistles (including navigation, back up camera, clear paint protection films, sound system, etc) for only $26k? I wasn't buying it! I live in Dallas and told him I was going to be very disgruntled if I made the trip all the way down to Houston only to find some semblance of a '76 El Camino. He gave me his word that if, when I arrived, the car was not EXACTLY as he said it was, and up to my standards, he would personally pay for all my travel expenses. So I did like any normal person would, and booked a plane ride for the next morning. In the mean time, Tri had the car taken to a nearby Lexus dealership (at my insistence, like any responsible used car shopper would) for a non-biased opinion on the vehicle. I was assured by their master technician that I should grab this car before someone else did!
When I arrived the next morning at the airport, I was picked up by one of the Expo employees (Tri had arranged all of this) in the car, which I drove back to the dealership. It was perfect. Exactly like the pictures, only better. Once back at the dealership, Tri was as incredible as he had been throughout. He had me out the door in my amazing new car within about 30 minutes. I can not say enough good things about my experience with Expo. I was terrified I was going to be ripped off or it would all be a waste of my time, but everything was phenomenal. If you had a bad experience at Expo (or ANY used car dealership, for that matter) you have no one to blame but yourself. If you do not thoroughly check the vehicle's history and have it inspected by a 3rd party, you are setting yourself up for trouble.
the amazing car i got thanks to Tri!!!
