Findlay Cadillac sales consultant is a true believer
Veteran Findlay Cadillac sales consultant Mike Waldman has put his money where his mouth is, numerous times in fact. Waldman recently leased a 2018 Cadillac CT6 — and he and his wife have leased 10 Cadillacs in the past 15 years.
With more than 23 years in the car business, and more than 12 years with Findlay Cadillac, the 75 year-old Waldman knows the product and the value of not only working for a Cadillac dealership, but also leasing vehicles from the dealership.
Waldman’s 2018 CT6 is Cadillac’s Premium Luxury model offers many notable features: a 3.0 six-cylinder twin-turbo engine that fires off 404 horsepower and 400 pounds of torque. Throw in an eight-speed transmission and it’s easy to see why the model is so highly-regarded.
Equally as impressive is the Active Rear Steering; All-Wheel Drive, Automatic Stop-Start, Automatic Vehicle Hold; Forward and Reverse Automatic Braking; Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking; Magnetic Ride Control, Heads Up Display; Night Vision; Super Cruise; Surround Vision 360 Front and Rear Camera; and Surround Vision Recorder.
While all of the features in Waldman’s vehicle are impressive, the Active Rear Steering, Surround Vision 360 Front and Rear Camera and Recorder; Night Vision and Super Cruise might be the most interesting among the features.
“As an example of Cadillac’s expertise, with the Active Rear Steering feature when you turn the front wheels, the rear wheels turn, too,” Waldman explained. “Super Cruise is the world’s first true hands-free driver assistance feature for the freeway; while Night Vision works at night on any street and sees further than the naked eye of up to 100 yards — well beyond the headlight range.
A native of Denver, Waldman is now on his second Cadillac CT6. He certainly has the car business and the Cadillac brand in his heart, and the 2019 CT6 models are starting to arrive.
“I was driving Cadillacs back when I was living in Denver in the 60s, 70s or 80s,” he said. “It was during that era that Cadillac was always known as best of the best. Whatever the person was buying, he or she was buying the ‘Cadillac’ of any product. That’s how well-respected Cadillac has been for decades.”
Seventy-five percent of Waldman’s sales are repeat business from previous customers.
“My customers trust me, and I provide the service-after-the-sale,” Waldman summarized. “In fact, my buyers come from as far away as Utah, Arizona, California, Montana, Idaho and Colorado. They will sometimes call any time of the day, and I’m happy to hear from them.”
