    I was looking for a used car for my college-age son, something dependable and not really expensive. The dealer had a few on the lot and one undergoing... 'clean-up' before being put on the lot. I waited a few days and when I didn't see any new info about the one being cleaned up, I sent an email to the owner of the dealership. He answered me the same evening. We had a few emails back and forth, discussing different vehicles, different maintenance concerns, and financial issues. The 'clean-up' vehicle was finally put on the lot and I took it for a good test drive- acceleration, braking, alignment, noise-rattles, fit and finish, etc. Everything worked as it was supposed to. The price was good and they gave me more for my trade-in than other dealers had offered. I bought the car and drove it home the next day. I contacted the owner/CEO one last time and told him of my experience, the good things and the less-than-perfect things. He explained everything in detail- so much so that I was confident I got a very decent deal on the vehicle. Now the owner runs several dealerships and heaven knows he must have more important things to do than spend time answering my lengthy emails- but he did. I'm confident I got a good deal on a good car and I didn't need to spend $30,000 to do it. If this owner treats a less-than-$10,000 customer with such care, I believe he treats everyone with such care. My next car will also be from Premier. I think that's the best recommendation I can give.
