BTiLC Crackerjack Timing

Toyota Matrix

Thanks to sadiecabaret's tip about Costco, I'm going to test drive a Toyota Matrix this afternoon! Anything I should look out for and ask about? These things seem to move fast once I make up my mind.

Car Shopping.

After spending almost 3 hours at the dealership, it is definite that I'm going to buy a 2006 Matrix in their Shadow color. It will be a reincarnated Dudley! I really liked the Matrix. Of course, it broke the sales guy's heart when I stuck by my "I'm not buying a car today. I need 24 hours to think about it." decision. The manager came over and talked with me. Broke his heart, too. I'll be back on Saturday to buy the car. Right now, I have to decide what to do with my Saturn and to clean it out.

Btw, I'm really glad I got the sales guy I did because I was listening to another guy do a hard sell - including the "I need to make a copy of your driver's license" stalling technique. I drove two different types of Matrix cars and I didn't even have to show my guy my driver's license.
