I "converted" a Toyota buyer to an MKZ!

Recommended Posts

The husband of someone who works in our office has a Toyota Avalon, which lease is ending. He was all set to get another one (without even considering anything else) when I suggested he look at an MKZ (she had seen mine and liked it). I hooked them up with my excellent salesman at my excellent dealership and they saw and drove it on Saturday, loved it, and made the deal! It's only slightly more expensive than they were paying, for a step up in prestige (but it is a step down in size).

I am especially glad to get someone to switch from an import to an American brand!

Well done!  I looked at the Avalon for a minute.

Nice work! Bonus points for the Toyota conversion. What color did they go with?

Magnetic/Ebony (same as mine!). Select 2.0/AWD w/single panel moonroof and all-weather mats as only options. Edited by longislander

Very cool. Magnetic is a great color. I'm waiting to see one with black aftermarket wheels.

I'm waiting to see a Magnetic Reserve trim with the new Magnetic-painted wheels. I believe someone on this forum has one of those on order!

On another note, I had a client stop by my office today to show me his 2017 MKZ loaner (his 21016 MKC is in for service). It was Black Diamond with the Driver's Package! He let me take it for a spin - those seats look and feel great, and the slightly firmer suspension compared to mine (both in "Normal") was very much to my liking! No regrets but I surely see the appeal of the Driver's Package.

Good work!

 

I had a rented Avalon in February of this year.  No comparison.  It's an appliance for someone who wants to step up a bit from a Camry.  Drivers need not apply.
