Request a deal through Ari

Over the last few weeks, we’ve had so many updates from Ari that I don’t know where to begin.  I am quite puzzled with what to show you this week. Of course, I could put all the updates in one blog post but that would be too overwhelming, and where is the fun in reading a Wikipedia-like blog post – Unacceptable, because Ari is all about fun.

So let’s talk about a cool new feature Ari has for you.

You can request a car deal through Ari.

Here is how I did it:

I was interesting in checking out the new Honda Civic 2017 model so I went here; https://newcar.carlist.my/honda/2017/civic

On the top right corner I clicked on “Request a Deal” and Ari popped in from the right side of the screen. She asked me to enter my details, phone number, location, email etc. It sent me a verification code, a verification email.

It was nice to see that she is keeping the riff-raff away by going through the pains of verifying me, it seemed legitimate.

An instant chat session opened and I could talk to Ari face to face.

After getting myself verified, Ari threw at me a list of things I could do. Whether I wanted to visit my nearest dealership, a test drive, comparison, and even car loan pricing details. It was wonderful.

She gave me some useful tips for buying a car and then asked me if I she can suggest me a car based on my actions since landing on this page. I politely decline, said “no, thank you, I have my heart set on Honda Civic” – I really wanted to get me one of those.

Ari argued and with good reason, “Yes, a good buyer should always compare first before buying a car. But unfortunately I have limited space. I will lead you to comparison page where you can compare up to four cars. Just click on the image.”

I gave in and looked through various car comparisons on the website. I returned and Ari said “where are you?” and gave me names of all the cities of Malaysia, I selected my location and that’s that.

I was shown best car deals and just like that, I bought a beautiful Honda Civic 2017 in a color of my choosing.
