It has been years since I have gotten a car at a dealership. I have always hated car salesmen! I finally after 10 years was forced to go to a dealership to get a car. I started at Shawnee MIssion KIA they promised a approval for anyone making over $250 a week. After explaining I only had $500 down they came back with a 2004 chevy colbalt CRAP CAR with a down payment of $5,000. Then told me well its not our fault we cant get you into a car they wanted 50% down payment. Next stop was Academy over the phone they ran my info and told me nothing under $1500 down and then they had no cars under $40k. 3rd Stop was Laird Noller in Topeka They flat out told me we cant do anything under $1500 and offered nothing but high mileage, old cars. Then I called Auto Exchange and spoke with Mike Andrade (Owner) Nothing but good news all around with him. I finally found a car with my lower credit score that was not very old,great price,near perfect condition, and power everything. I can't Begin to thank Mike enough for getting me in a safe,dependable, and wonderful car. Even better than everything I not once felt like I was dealing with a dishonest or sleasy salesman which has always been my dealings in the past. MIke Is WONDERFUL and I will never get a car from any other place!!!!!!
