Fletcher Jones Mercedes Benz of Temecula may not be the only luxury dealership in the area, but they’re striving to do things differently than some of their competitors.
The dealership, which opened its doors to the public on April 19, has placed an emphasis on quality customer service.
On a regular basis they put in their best effort to navigate clients through the process of buying a vehicle that will satisfy those clients’ needs, according to Garth Rosenthal, general manager of the Fletcher Jones Company.
“We want to make sure that we’re building relationships, that we’re making people feel comfortable and that we make people feel like they’re guests in our home,” Rosenthal said. “And we have sales consultants who are certified in product knowledge and it’s their job to find out what the guest’s objective is and show them the different models that might be in their price range.”
Rosenthal said Mercedes Benz is different from other luxury car dealerships in that there are a wide variety of different models to choose from at different price points. Often times when customers think of luxury they might think of matching high end prices, but Rosenthal said that Mercedes has recently been making an effort to design cars that are both stylish and economical.
“I think the first thing is that Mercedes Benz is really on the cutting edge in terms of what we’re bringing to the marketplace,” Rosenthal said. “For example, the CLA has been a big hit with the general audience but particularly with Generation Y.”
The CLA, a four-door coupe, has quickly become a favorite among car buyers because of its stylish interior and exterior. The car comes equipped with an interior that was designed in a studio in Italy and borrows from current Italian fashion trends. The car’s exterior might also appeal to customers who are looking for soft swooping curves rather than hard cut lines.
Other notable features of the car have to do with its economic advantages, as it gets 38 miles to the gallon on the highway. The car is also relatively inexpensive when compared with other vehicles in its class, as it has a starting price point of $29,900.
But the CLA certainly isn’t the only affordable option available from Mercedes Benz.
The C Class Mercedes is another favorite and basic models can be purchased for less than $40,000, a price point that makes the car a viable and affordable competitor to similar luxury models.
The car’s stylish exterior is complimented by its power. Even the most basic luxury models of the CLA jump from 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds.
For those looking for power and performance, the C-300 sport model of the vehicle boasts 241-hp turbo four-cylinder engine and the C-400 boasts a 329-hp twin-turbo V-6. The vehicles may be sporty but are said to drive softly on the highway.
But Rosenthal said the C Class sedans and coupes and the CLA represent just a sampling of what’s available for those looking to buy a Mercedes. He said there are many other options and the stores sales staff are ready to help prospective customers at a moment’s notice.
“There are a lot of exciting luxury cars that Mercedes Benz is bringing out,” Rosenthal said. “And we feel that our availability is wider than any other luxury brand.”
