Edmunds.com "Takes Over" Lexus of Smithtown Car Dealership to Provide Long Island with Exclusive Car Shopping Experience

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — November 20, 2013 — Lexus of Smithtown is one of just a handful of dealers from across the country selected by Edmunds.com to host an unprecedented Edmunds.com Price Promise Takeover Event.

Responding to customer feedback for a simple, convenient and less stressful car buying experience, Edmunds.com and Lexus of Smithtown are partnering together to bring this exclusive event to the Long Island community on Friday, November 22 through Sunday, November 24. During the event every new car on the Lexus of Smithtown lot will be priced at True Market Value (TMV®), as verified by America's premier resource for car shopping and automotive information, Edmunds.com.

"We are honored to be selected to host this type of event for such a well-known brand in the automotive industry. Edmunds.com provides consumers with the information they need to make a well informed decision not only about the vehicle they are purchasing but also about the price they are getting,"says Lexus of Smithtown General Sales Manager Frank Galante. "During this precedent-setting event every new car in the Smithtown inventory will be priced at Edmunds.com's True Market Value which means that shoppers will pay no more than the average price paid for identical cars in New York — that is the commitment we are making with this event."

Edmunds.com will also have a staff of experts on site throughout the weekend to answer shoppers' questions and advise buyers throughout the sales process. Only two other Edmunds.com Price Promise Takeover Events have taken place across the country.

"This is truly a unique experience that will allow car shoppers the opportunity to buy a car with third party validation in the dealership,"says Lexus of Smithtown's Sales Manager Tim Burns. "We think car shoppers will really appreciate this purchasing environment because it will ultimately save them time and reduce the amount of stress consumers typically feel during the purchase process. Lexus of Smithtown is a progressive dealership that continually wins awards for its customer service and we are confident that this transparent environment is the evolution of the industry. We want to be out, ahead of the curve."

Edmunds.com's Price Promise program is designed to give shoppers a convenient and reliable way to know exactly what price they will pay at the dealership. According to a survey conducted by Edmunds.com, the biggest unmet need of shoppers is getting an actual price for a car. Price Promise tackles this issue head on by offering instant pricing on vehicles listed on Edmunds.com's inventory pages by participating dealers.

Lexus of Smithtown is located at 700 Middle Country Road in St James, New York. The event dates are Friday November 22nd, Saturday November 23rd and Sunday November 24th and the showroom will be from 9 am to 9 pm on Friday, 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday and 11 am to 5 pm on Sunday.
