Shopping for a different vehicle

We came to Rydell to look for a different vehicle. Dawn greeted us outside on the lot. We were talking about either repairing our vehicle or getting a different one. We looked at different vehicles and found one that fit our needs. Dawn was very helpful, kind, polite and LISTENED to what we needed in our price range. I have been approached by males before at dealerships that were pushy and did not listen to me. But Dawn respected what we could afford and she found the perfect vehicle for us.

"We know little about fords" GM of service.

Don't buy a used car from here. Lazy xxx mechanics and lying supervisors in the service department. Waterloo and independance Iowa. They wouldn't even honor the warranty on the used car they sold me the first two times I took it in to be fixed for the same exact reasons. I know exactly what's wrong with the car but they "can't figure it out". The xxxxxx just want you to pay out of pocket. I don't even work on cars for a living and I know what's wrong with it. And their "highly specialized mechanics" are very "special" just cant figure it out. Lmao nobody sells xxxx like rydells does.

Couldn’t be happier!

Thank you so much Brandon Reyes! He is simply the best! I submitted my information and was contacted, any questions answered, and in less than 24 hours I was driving away in my first ever, brand new suv. Thanks again Brandon! 💙

Purchasing a new truck

I found a new truck online that I liked so I called in. Dawn Tomson was the saleswoman that answered the phone and she was very helpful. So I made an appointment with her and came in and purchased the new truck. She made the experience effortless and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Dawn and Rydell for your next purchase.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox LT AWD

Another Chevrolet dealership offered a larger discount off new vehicle; we did not like color of that vehicle. We purchased vehicle at this dealership based on color and sport option of vehicle, not on price or discounts. This dealership would not negotiate on price. Purchased Resistall Full Pkg to protect new car. No boxes on ResistAll NG2 Customer Registration Form were checked, so not sure which parts of Full Pkg were completed. Sales consultants were friendly, very helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed working with them. This is our second Equinox. Our first Equinox was great, so we purchased another one. This Equinox has features we desired.
