I'm not surprised,

When I goto the ford dealership to get my fusion serviced. (have lifetime inspection and 3 years free oil changes)

The last time was during lunch time and they offered me a demo car if I wanted to leave the lot to get some lunch for myself.

When I first got my fusion I made an appointment to get a remote starter installed in it. They were booked that week but said if I wanted to drop it off they would screeze it in and give me a lot car to keep for a few days and they would call me when its done.

I took the offer and was surpised when they gave me a new explorer sport to drive around with a full tank of gas and was told don't worry about filling it back up before bringing it back.

I never got service like that from my jeep dealership even though I had all my work done by them on my SRT.

Maybe I might come back later and ask for a different salesman because I want some one else getting the comish, but they don't determine whether I buy a certain vehicle or not.

If you liked the interior better, I would have went with the Dart. Spend too much in the interior to have an inferior one IMO.

Ether way, hope it works out for you/her.
I agree, as always in life, there were more factors that played in her decision but the sales person was one of them. The dart doesn't feel as live as the focus when you drive it. She was used to the '14 she had so driving the dodge didn't impress her. I did state the point that your are always inside so the interior matters. The Ford is updated compared the the '14 but still the dart is nicer. However our both gut feeling in addition to my experience with the wk1 and now the '14 I unfortunately had to steer away from dodge

TonySRT8 you know I was really surprised at the last 2 ford dealerships I went to. The 1st was when we got the gf '14 focus and the 2nd time was this week. I don't know if I was lucky but if ford made a 500 hp awd suv I might be considering a test drive
