Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
January 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
I believe a new model was about to be released so bargains to be had on the "old" ones in the showroom. Just good timing for us.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
A good price for a smart car.

What was the dealer like?
A very pleasant experience. We did not feel pressured as the car practically sold itself. We loved the home baking and hot chocolate served in nice china cups.
