Very prompt replies to inquiries. Very nice to deal with in person. Buying process when quickly once started.
However, they either did not inspect the car well enough or intentionally withheld information that would have been nice to know before driving 6 hours to look at it. "Is there rust on it?" I was immediately sent a picture of one spot where paint had been scraped off and showed a small amount of rust. What I wasn't told was that the hood was covered in pockmarks that will lead to rust soon, and that there were dings and scratches in many places that will do the same. Perhaps they didn't know the car had been in an accident, but we could tell as soon as we saw it. The door hadn't even been put back together properly and the paint was close, but not quite. Although they had a shop inspect and fix some things, there is still a bad wheel bearing that we will need to fix that was not even mentioned. No backseat head rests. Driver side speaker not working at all. Seemingly random things damaged that were not mentioned in the listing. I may still have traveled 6 hours if I had known these things, but they could have done a better job inspecting and outlining issues when listing the car.
The car is serving its purpose of getting good gas mileage and having a lot of cargo room, but there are a bunch of little things we will be responsible for fixing for it to look and run decently. Great people to work with, but needs improvement when it comes to thoroughly listing their inventory.
Comfy but not mechanically reliable

I bought this car used at 60k miles. Its comfy, but I have had three major mechanical issues with it. Each issue costing me about $2,000.
My salesman Chase went above and beyond to get me what I wanted. Know matter how many times I would change my mind on which vehicle I wanted. He would get the best deal that he could for me. Chase really made my car buying process a lot more stress free. Thanks Chase

a large vehicle that is thirsty
by Don from FONTHILL

I bought the loaded Enclave used, with 110,000 km. The alternator died the first year of my ownership; thankfully, It was replaced under warranty (an $850 job). The Enclave is a big vehicle, with three row seating (the third row being quite tight). I actually moved a full-size refrigerator in this vehicle, and towed my 20 foot boat regularly. I had a number of issues with the Enclave during my ownership (I traded it with 225,000 km after four years). The a/c system needed an expensive repair, and the a/c accuators needed replacement (I did the job myself). Had to strip off the driver side door skin to fix a problem. But the biggest problem was the gas mileage. I averaged about 17 litres per 100 km on the computer (16.6 miles per imperial gallon, 13.4 miles per US gallon).
I was extremely satisfied with my experience at Johnson's. The staff is warm, friendly, and helpful. John is extremely knowledgeable and worked hard to find the perfect fit for me and make the process smooth. I am definitely committed to doing business with John and his amazing staff.
Great road trip car

Very comfortable and good ride on cross country trips. The exterior and interior both look good. Plenty of room for passengers and luggage.
The navigation system is not good. Small screen, and not intuitive to program. Will only accept Mt not mount when that is in the name. Maps not up to date when new, expensive to update.
John Johnson goes above and beyond for his customers! Always making sure they leave satisfied. He runs an excellent dealership with excellent staff. They find and fix the problems quick, always have amazing deals and are honest! Will always shop there and will only let them work on my vehicle! Such a great place!
finally a car with good cargo capacity!!!

I was in the market for a small SUV with large cargo capacity to replace an ageing Aztek (91 cu ft cargo capacity). Unfortunately, SUVs similar in size on the outside are much smaller on the inside, and the larger SUVs are too big for somebody only 5 feet tall to get in and out of, load up, or even see out of. This wagon was a great alternative for me, and has more cargo capacity than the SUVs I looked at, along with a better ride, better visibility, and much better gas mileage. The AWD was a necessity for me (living in upstate NY). I have gotten a huge amount of compliments on it, and friends with SUVs even say they really like it. Got a great deal buying at the end of the year (about $9k off the sticker). Hope to keep it for a long time!
Johnson's has gone above and beyond in their service to their customer. Not only did they work hard to get every available dollar in trade in from my old car but worked to get incentives from the manufacturer for even greater savings. They have taken care of all the details from switching my insurance to registering my vehicle with the state. All I had to do was drive it off the lot. Not to mention there are no add on fees here what they say is the price is what you pay. If you are looking for a great deal with no hassle this is where you want to be.
Very economical for the features

Body styling, interior comfort, jam-packed features make this a good buy in a time at which SUVs are taking over the market. I was an Enclave owner and hope to go back to it someday but the Buick Lacrosse is a nice change of pace.
Absolutely love the People at Johnson Chevrolet. Since 2007 i have bought 5 vehicles from Tim, and John. Best service and Commitment to finding me the Trucks or SUV's my family and I are looking for at that time. Would not buy a vehicle from any place else. Thanks again guys!

Good car on all counts. I'm still learning all the features;this is the first time I have owned a car with all the bells and whistles as they say. Love the look and it is reliable.
Kirby and her crew are awesome..They go above and beyond any dealership in the area to meet all your car purchasing needs before and after the sale!!!
Purchased May 2018, with only 7,000 miles on it.

The best riding vehicle we have ever owned! Because of its size it is a little rough on the gas mileage but I am willing to pay that for the ride and comfort!
