    This dealership is friendly, helpful, clean and bright. Not only Wayne Konz, but the other employees are friendly. I have dealt with Wayne on other vehicles... and he always is friendly and helpful. We were having problems linking On Star to my phone, so he came to my house so we could use my actual computer. I would, without a doubt, return to Vern Eide!

    My husband & I were greeted by Wayne on the lot. Told him we only wanted to test drive the Enclave to see how it drove.. Wayne was awesome. no pressure.... told us the extras that the Enclave had and explained the features.. Ended up buying the vehicle that day ..Wayne made the paperwork process a breeze.. Levi helped us with the paperwork and explained it all. All in all it was an easy , stress free buying/ selling experience. We have went to S.F. to buy other vehicles but why...I can get great guest service and local salesmen to help when I have questions.. I highly recommend Wayne and Levi for the vehicle experience...the only thing my husband didn"t get from his list was a steak supper..haha

    I found a GMC Terrain online that I liked. I live an hour from Mitchell, so I called and spoke with salesman, Wayne Konz, and let him know what time... I'd be there to test drive the vehicle. He greeted me outside right after I pulled in their lot. I test drove the vehicle and did not receive any pressure to buy. Wayne explained all the vehicle features in such great detail. Once I decided to buy the vehicle, the paperwork part went very smooth. I would definitely recommend Wayne and the rest of the team at Vern Eide GMC in Mitchell, SD if you are looking for a new vehicle.

    I have never experienced such an incredible level of customer service. The care that not only my car received but the care I received was top notch!

    Salesman, Wayne Konz, was terrific. He gave us a great deal with no high pressure sale. We were looking to lease or buy, but his lease terms were unbeatable.... He answered all of our questions truthfully and was available for follow-up questions. The whole experience was painless! Would definitely recommend anyone looking for new, used, or a lease to give Wayne a call at Vern Eide GMC in Mitchell, SD.

    My over all experience was better than anticipated. The over all customer service was outstanding. Everybody I talked to was extremely friendly and knowledgeable.... With their help I was able to find the vehicle I wanted and was able to purchase it the same day.

    Traveling from Michigan a headlight went out. Stopped at an auto parts store and got a bulb. Checked on the internet on how to replace it and found out... there is a lot of parts to remove in order to access the light assembly. Did not have all the tools needed so stopped in the dealership just before they closed and they put a mechanic on the job. Not only did they accommodate me there was no charge. Terrific service Thanks

    I would recommend this dealership. We had a smooth experience from start to finish. We had seen a vehicle we liked online and so we knew before we even... came to the dealership which car we wanted. It was still in transit to the dealership but we came up to the dealership in advance and test drove an identical make/model/year in a different color and went over all the features of the vehicle we were interested in. We did feel pressured to commit to the vehicle before ever having seen it in person which would make anyone nervous, especially when you're spending that much money. However, the price was where we wanted, we were on a bit of a timeline, and we were concerned that if we didn't make a move on it that it might get sold quickly once it arrived. Once the car arrived, it was exactly as described/as we'd hoped. Also, are schedules were an obstacle and they were willing to work with us even outside of regular hours, to make the sale happen. We would definitely work with Vern Eide and John again in the future.

    Ryan was great to work with. We spent the better part of a day reviewing the features of two vehicles that we had narrowed our search down to. He was... patient as we asked questions and answered them all without trying to steer us toward one vehicle or the other. At the end of the day, we drove away with our new vehicle as very happy customers.
