Just an awesome experience purchasing a car and getting out of leasing, to continue on my journey of retiring in the Spring. Like most people buying a car is a big financial decision to make and like most people afraid of salesmen, but there was never any pressure from the staff specially my salesman Jobin Grandstrom from Videon Chevrolet. I will return to the dealership when it's time and send my family and friends. Merry Christmas everyone. Love my gangster car.
Great for towing

You can’t go wrong with the duramax and Allison combo. I have 3 of these trucks and they work great for us. Maintenance and repairs can be pricey but they are all still going strong with 883k combined miles
There IS a better mousetrap and these guys (& girls) have made it. While the price WAS a major factor ; they price them to be sold, it was really the "how" they do it here that left me floating out to my new car. Painless?? Forget painless, this was ENJOYABLE!! I agonized over having to deal with another typical "dealer" yet, never had to. "Dealer" in definition is the only similarity between Sky Motors and anywhere else.. this is people helping people get what they want. Brett, Justin and the entire team - Thank you!! Best car buying experience ever!!!

First.....and last diesel, as this one will last. 100k now, and drives like new. Tows my rv like a dream. Expensive, but you do get what you pay for. My Silverado 1500 gasser was good, but not for towing in the mountain passes. This beast is built to tow! Keeping everything stock for now.
This was our first experience working with Patriot. Started working with Bob Johnson to possibly purchase a Traverse but then decided to replace our 2008 Tahoe with a new Tahoe. Despite all the searching Bob did for us, we couldn’t find exactly what we wanted. So through Bob we ordered a 2018 Tahoe. From start to finish (got the Tahoe yesterday!!!), we worked with Bob for a long time and he was always kind, patient and helpful. Whether we stopped in, called or emailed (and we did all three), he always found time for us and was very responsive. We met other great people at Patriot and the dealership was always immaculate. Great experience, great salesman and we are thrilled with our new Tahoe. We now look forward to trying their service department.

They earn the right and privilege to be called Kin

The people here were absolutely excellent. They were knowledgeable, responsive and understanding. I dealt with Kristen and Tim on my purchase here and could not be happier with the service. When it comes to customer service it is obvious they hold the highest of standards. I can't say enough about the staff and mangagement here at Patriot. They are truly the king's when it comes to buying a new or used vehicle. I highly recommend considering them in you next vehicle purchase! *Cheers*

Rides great, handles excellent, will take on any job or obstical you put in front of it. Looks great and is very dependable. If you have the diesel it gets great mileage for your hard earned money!
Our experience with Patriot for the purchase of a new Buick Enclave and a certified pre-owned Chevy Equinox was probably the easiest, pressure free car buying experience I have ever experienced. Both their GM/Buick and Chevy showrooms are very well take care of, and their service waiting area is very comfortable and convenient to get some work done while waiting. Jason Owens and his team of professionals are great to work with.
Best truck I've owned
by Country Squid from jacksonville, FL

Besides the gas mileage being extremely low due to being a gas truck it was worked extremely well for my family. Pulled my camper fully loaded and the bed filled. On long drives was very comfortable not just for me but my passengers also. World but this truck again but might go for the Diesel upgrade.
Everyone at the dealership was extremely helpful and personable. Sarah was fantastic in explaining the different vehicles and trims, and not to mention has a wonderful personality. John worked really hard to get me a great deal. I was offered above market value for my trade and my monthly payments are less than what I was willing to do because of John's hard work and honesty. I have already started referring friends and neighbors to this dealership.

Unreliable diesel truck
by Franks2006chevy from LOS ANGELES
December 9, 2018
The 2500 hd gas version is reliable. However the 2500 diesel version is unreliable. My father had a 2014 chevy silverado 2500hd with the duramax engine. It broke down often. He hardly used it for work. Mostly just for weekends to go out . Never pulled ,towed or hauled anything with it. The reason he finally got rid of it was after the fuel system had a problem and it ended up damaging the internal parts of the engine . Factory warranty paid $8k to fix it. Luckily it was still under the 36k miles. So stay away from these duramax engines. The only reliable duramax engines are the ones made in 2006 .
I would defiantly buy from Bechtel Autos again. the staff very friendly and willing to go to the next level of customer service to satisfy the customer.
Expensive to repair
by T_Dub from Lehi, UT
January 13, 2019
When it runs right it’s not a bad truck. It’s comfortable on trips and looks good. How ever it is painfully expensive to have repaired. 90% of shop won’t even work on diesels and the ones that do charge a lot.
Dustin Yelowitz has been great for my past couple of leases. I would highly recommend him for your new car need, thanks again bro! You did it again! -Bruce
L5P Duramax has no comparisons
by Diezelnut from Mount Vernon, IL
December 2, 2018
I’ve owned Ford and Dodge diesels in the past, nothing compares to the L5P. The truck is comfortable, quiet and has an impressive torque range. Have not had it long enough to gauge mileage, so far it compares to the LML when it was new.
Friendly and good service. Not like the some other dealership either ignore you or too aggressive . Sales person and sales manager seems honest. When I ask them to mail me my license plate, I received it next day.

Actually this was the perfect truck for my needs everything is what I wanted from gas engine to double cab even the color only concern I may have is fuel milage but with towing ability an very well equipped I think I can live with it
I would recommend them for service and repair, but not for purchasing a vehicle.
Best Truck I've ever owned
by Satisfied in Arizona from Phoenix AZ

I love this truck! The dependability and power of the Duramax diesel is unmatched... and the Allison transmission makes it all the better. This truck served me faithfully for years, offers plenty of interior comforts and tows extremely well.
Joe got my son his first car. It’s still on the road. Nice helpful people. Buying another vehicle there.The price was excellent and fair. Service was great. Ty Joe
Great Diesel Truck
by OzzyLMM from San Clemente, CA
September 23, 2018
Very comfortable interior for a HD truck. I have almost 200,000 miles on it (all original) and have never had to do anything more than regular maintenance. Fuel economy is surprisingly high (17/22) and it tows like a dream. The interior plastic panels on the dash are the biggest headache and have cracked. The Duramax is a highly reliable and powerful power plant.
Bruce Blake without a doubt is the best and most honest, straight forward car dealer that we have ever met. There is no beating around the bush with Bruce. He is as honest as the day is long, and has always been there for my partner and I. We have known Bruce for years, and feel like he is a good friend. Bruce makes people feel special, and that's what living is all about. He is not just looking for a quick car deal to make that commission for himself. He truly wants to help the customer find the best deal for their money, not to mention the most comfortable car for the buyer. Bruce will not attempt to talk you into something else, which I truly find appealing for a car dealer. Most of the other dealers that I have dealt with act like the buyer is stupid, and try to get over on them to get more money. Not Bruce... I have referred people to Bruce, and have never heard one bad comment from any of them, in reference to his professionalism and honesty. This is who Bruce is as a person, not just a car dealer! We just love Bruce, and pray that he sticks around awhile so we can keep purchasing Honda's from him. Aloha, Sally and Kahau
Very unreliable truck.
by Animal Man from Frankfort, KY
October 22, 2018
Bought this truck new. It only has 60,000 miles in 7 years. Everything works fine except for the DEF system for the diesel engine. It's been in shop 4 times for DEF sensors and each time cost me around $500 to $900 dollars to get it fixed. I will not drive too far from home because never know when the sensors will break. Never buy another chevrolet diesel.
Great dealership. There was no pressure and they were very friendly and helpful. They stayed open way past their closing time just to accommodate me. They were fair and reasonable with their offer. I would definitely buy from this dealership again.
Best truck out there.

Best truck. Best motor. The LML motor is a beast. The truck rides great. The interior is awesome. Everything works together great. Best truck that I have bought.
I'm located in Missouri and found the vehicle equipped like I wanted it on cars.com and contacted dealership. Had good communication from and received prompt service from Frank Barry, who made the long-distance transaction painless on the purchase of 2018 Escalade Platinum.
