I enjoy driving and learning about cars. My friend and fellow blogger D-Mocha Traveler and I visit car shows and go to auto events frequently. On Saturday, September 17th I visited Sewell Pre-Owened in Dallas with family members shopping for a new/newer car. We walked the lot, and looked at a few cars to rule out the ones they were interested in: The new NX SUV, the ES , IS, and the GS. We determined that the IS was too small for their everyday driving needs. So we wanted to obtain information on the NX, ES, and GS. However, there was one problem. Not one sales person greeted us! There was not one sales person in sight to talk to, and ask questions about available vehicles. Very disappointing! While some cars were unlocked for us to sit in and stickers with vehicle specs were on the windows we could not ask anyone about pricing, maintenance, or inquire about the trade of a 2004 Lexus vehicle. Plus it was hot outside and, no refreshments to drink
One family member suggested that we go to Park Place Mercedes next door. I visited this dealership before with another family member who purchased 2 vehicles at this location, so I knew that the staff there will greet us, and answer our questions. Plus they have pretty plush facilities and refreshments. So we drove across the street and viewed the models on display in the showroom. Thomas was our sales person. Although he did not work Pre-owened vehicles, he was able to answer our questions, give an estimate on the trade value of the 2004 Lexus, and took us out on a test drive of a 2015 C300. Thomas also gave us numbers on other pre-owned and new vehicles, and talked about lease programs. Unfortunately, I did not take photos during our visit to Park Place. However, I highly recommend this dealership to anyone who is in the market for a new luxury vehicle!
