How OffleaseOnly helped me find my dream car!
I know that many of you can relate to the term “Pride of Ownership.” Whether it’s your powerboat, your custom motorcycle or a fine automobile in the garage, we all love our toys and that translates to the TLC we give them. In my case, the pride & joy in my driveway is the 2011 Jaguar XJ Supercharged, which I purchased from OffleaseOnly earlier this year. I am proud say I’ve never taken it to a drive-through car wash, and I find enjoyment hand-washing it in whenever I can.
The Jaguar was the deal of the century when I bought it. I was looking at several other high-line cars at OffleaseOnly’s Lake Worth location, when I stumbled upon the Jag. It wasn’t on my wish list, until I looked at the spacious, luxurious interior and asked for a test drive. When I hit the pedal on Lake Worth road the car lunged forward and sounded like a V8 muscle car from the sixties. I turned at the next light and found an open stretch of road and stomped one more time. I felt like I was headed to the Moon!!
SAVED A LOT!
Immediately, I wanted the car, and quickly searched online for comparable Jags, only to fine this low 9,000 mile car was priced about $ 11,000 less than any similar model across the national Pre-owned Jaguar website. Wow..must be a catch? In fact there were no catches. My only other concern was, how much of the 48 month/50,000 warranty was left and how would my local Jaguar dealer treat me, since they did not sell me the car? The results astonished me!
SERVICE WITH A SMILE!
I made my first service appointment with Alpine Jaguar located just a mile from the FPC office here in Pompano, and got treated like a King. All of the scheduled service was completed along with a laundry list of warranty related items and a new battery replacement. I drove a brand new Jaguar as a free loaner, and virtually every repair item was handled, which amounted to more than a few thousand dollars in parts and labor, yet I paid virtually nothing,. $ 0.00 a hand shake…“Mr Jones, enjoy your car, we’ll see you for your next service in a few months!”
WASN’T THE FIRST TIME!
I will go one step further, in less detail, I would say that my experience owning my previous car, a 2008 BMW 750i that I purchased in 2010 from OffleaseOnly, was very similar. I paid $ 36,000 for a car that had a factory window sticker of $ 86,000, and yet the car still carried 30 months of factory warranty when I purchased it. My local Pompano dealer Vista BMW, treated me like royalty..and every service item, oil change, maintenance and repair including new brakes at 40k miles and a few components along the way, were paid 100% by the factory warranty. When the car needed new tires, they let me buy my own set of 4 Continentals from TireRack, and charged only a nominal fee to mount and balance them! Unbelievable!!
THE MORAL OF THE STORY…
Anyone who thinks that they are taking chances buying pre-owned cars, really needs to learn from my experiences with Offleaseonly. I have purchased over ten vehicles from Offlease in the last fifteen years, saved tens of thousands of dollars, and have had a great experience with every purchase I’ve made. It’s somewhat ironic, that although OffleaseOnly owners Mark & Eileen Fischer are avid FPC members and good friends of ours…I rarely involve Mark with any of my dealings. He’s a busy guy, and has a fabulous staff of qualified employees. I deal with different sales people all the time, and I always feel like I’m treated well.
