Great, painless Fiat 500e Lease ExperienceWritten by supergenius1 on 11/19/13 08:09:53 AM PST Go back to Sales reviews

My wife and I were looking for an efficient car and hadn't considered any fully electric EV's with their high purchase price and limited range. On a whim we looked into the Fiat 500e, Fiat's California-only plug-in electric. To our surprise, they were offering a $199/month lease with $999 down. I thought it was too good to be true and there would be catches in the fine print. The next morning, I called the dealer and spoke to James Y., the GM, who said they had several on the lot and they were indeed going out the door at the advertised price. He said he was the one who made the decisions on the deals and to speak to him when I came in. I went right over and salesman David A. took me for a test drive. I got all my questions answered, picked the color I wanted (Electric Orange), and was on my way within an hour. Both James and David were excellent to deal with - no pressure, no hype, just friendly, sincere and straightforward. They even delivered the car to my house later that day (with a "full tank" of electrons!). David spent time with my wife going over the car and its features and controls since she hadn't been at the dealership with me for the test drive. Overall, it was one of the most professional, efficient and pleasant car shopping experiences I have had. I will definitely go back and see what new vehicles they have when my lease is up.
