OK, so the delivery coordinator person who called me at work said that I should bring my Corolla in for its evaluation, and I had my husband (who was working in Hartford today) pick up our son and meet me at the dealership. Well, just when I left work we were hit by a totally insane thunderstorm with torrential rains, high winds and an insane amount of lightning.
It took me longer than normal to get there and when I arrived the Inventory Manger said that they had actually asked the delivery coordinator NOT to call the customers whose cars were delivered today due to the weather
. He asked me if I could come back tomorrow and I said, "I want to take the car home tomorrow and my Corolla needs to be evaluated for the trade."
Long story shorter, once it wasn't pouring quite so hard he did my Corolla's evaluation in the rain. While we were waiting they brought the TCH out without its mirrors and with most of the shipping plastic still on it and we got to take pictures (found that camera on the floor in my Corolla) and sit in it. Our original salesperson, who is now a greeter, told us that we couldn't take it out for a drive since the mirrors weren't installed.
So then they came back with the offer on my Corolla, which was within the Kelly range for a trade-in of my model year with as many miles as it has. I was happy. And then we had to wait for the financial stuff. There was a couple ahead of me who were apparently buying TWO cars.
Eventually I sent my husband home with our son and I ended up being there til around 8pm. I got some questions answered.
Tomorrow after work we will go to the dealership with my Corolla with its keys, registration & title, a check for the remainder of our down payment, and our new insurance card and we will say goodbye Corolla, hello Camry Hybrid!
Thank you to everyone for listening to me rant and rave while I waited for my car. I have posted some pictures in the Share forum...
