CARite Windsor Locks
333 Ella Grasso Turnpike, Windsor Locks, CT, 06096
I went to Carite on a recommendation from a friend. I went there to look at a 2015 Lexus ES, which they had listed for what seemed to me to be a good price when compared with other dealers. However, when I was on my way in to talk to a sales person, I noticed a beautiful 2010 red Lexus LS 460 parked right next to the door. A gentleman (who turned out to be a friend of John, the owner), was walking out the door and noticed me peeking in the windows of the car, and he said "That is the owner's car. He will sell it to you if you want it"! I went on inside, and inquired for the owner. John was sitting at a desk, working with a customer, (and I made a note to myself that it was pretty cool the owner was sitting at a desk no more fancy than the numerous other salespeople's desks on the floor), and I interrupted him and asked if it was true that he would sell me his car and if so, how much? He smiled, said yes, told me an approximate price, and tossed me the keys! I took the car out for a ride (which they let you do by yourself at Carite, which is very nice). I came back with a huge smile on my face, which I couldn't contain ("There goes my bargaining power" I thought)! I'm sure my excitement was evident to John, and he knew I would have paid the full "approximate" price he had given me. However, he had me sit down, he did some analysis on his computer, and came up with a price less than the "approximate" price he quoted me! I couldn't have been more thrilled with the whole buying experience with Carite. Everyone I dealt with that day was as nice as John. In short, if you are in the market for a used car, you can't do better than Carite!
