We recently had to buy a newer car. We previously purchased a van from Douglas Dodge in Nov of 2015, so there was no question where we wanted to go to for our next vehicle. We worked with Dave Larue both times and we couldn't be more pleased! We have two outstanding vehicles that Dave sold to us and it was the best car buying experience each time! We highly recommend going to Douglas and working with Dave and the staff there!
2019 Dodge Journey Crossroad Review
by Mike from Marion, Ohio
April 27, 2019
This vehicle is perfect for the growing family and the price! The 2019 has the third row seats and plenty of head and leg room for adults.
Searched nationally for the perfect Fiat Spider 124 at a value price. Came across Douglas Dodge in Clinton, Illinois while sitting in the comfort of my Minnesota home (with snow still on the ground in April but thinking convertible anyway!). The car I was looking for is not easy to find. There were about 20 possibilities at dealerships throughout the country. I contacted Douglas Dodge and was fortunate to have been assigned a veteran sales pro there named Dave Lareau. He made my nervousness of maybe buying a car sight unseen in another state ease quickly. Dave was great and went so far as to pick me up at my hotel about 25 miles away so I could get to the dealership. Car was ready, pristine, gassed up and ready for me to drive it back to Minnesota. Dave got his atlas out and showed me how to get to the "river route". I spent the day putting my new little convertible sports car through the twisting turns along the Mississippi and just beat sundown as I pulled into my garage in Minnesota. Thanks so much to Dave and his team for making my car buying experience a memorable and enjoyable one. I also own Jeeps...and who knows...I might make the trip down again when its time to change those out since Douglas Dodge has quite an inventory of Wranglers, and since I am sure Dave will still be there.
2019 Dodge Journey Crossroad Review
Firs new car
by Nathen from Columbus
December 25, 2018
Great value for the money. Great options with the 3 row seating and 4 cylinder model with great gas milage. Would recommend the Dodge journey for any mid size family.
Found a budget priced used car for my 16 year-old son. Priced very reasonably and Dave Lareau was super helpful and worked with us on the grand total price (incl. tax, title, and license) so that we could stay within our preferred price range. Happy with my experience at this dealership and would recommend them to others!
2019 Dodge Durango GT Review
Love My Durango! Stylish and Comfortable!
by DurangoFan! from Lakefield, MN
May 15, 2019
Great looking, stylish, comfortable, great leg room, superb sound system, great features! Very quiet ride, little exterior noise, love the power this beast has, Love that HEMI engine!
I was looking to buy a slightly used truck and came across Douglas Dodge's website. They had the perfect sized truck I was looking for, along with a quality price. I bought my Ram 1500 from Dave Lareau. He was very personable and easy to talk to. Overall a solid guy, I would most highly recommend speaking with him if you are in the market for a new or used dodge vehicle!
2019 Dodge Grand Caravan GT Review
Upgraded from the Dodge Journey
by mamabear from Turlock CA
May 11, 2019
We are a family of 5 with a 15 year old, a 12 year old and a 7 year old, who are all growing at amazing rates. We had a Dodge journey for a few years but outgrew it so we went with the 2019 dodge caravan. It drives very similar to the journey; smooth, good pick up. The interior has so much more room though!! The kids love that there are outlets everywhere to charge their electronic devices and they even love the dvd player (even though they all have their own phones or ipads). I definitely wouldn't base my purchase on reviews from people who have only rented it: we all know how rental cars are treated by people.
This is a great choice for a family looking for an afforable minivan.
We are repeat customers, having had a great experience with our first auto purchase here. Dave was nice enough to notify me when a vehicle matching my criteria was traded in. We drove almost 2 hours, which was well worth it! The vehicle was exactly what we were looking for and we drove it home. They are very friendly , and efficient. We had one problem with the title on our previous purchase , which was the fault of the State of Illinois, the dealership had fixed quickly after our first call to them.
We bought our previous car there and thought we'd go back for our next one! Dave Lareau did a great job lining up cars similar to what we were looking for so that we cold find just the right one! They have so many cars there and we got just what we were looking for!! Thank you!
My husband and I were beyond pleased with our new vehicle purchase. Kevin Burlin was our Sales Associate and he worked with us to make sure our needs were met. Kevin took the time to tell us the pros and cons of each vehicle we discussed. We walked out of Sam Leman with a 2017 Chevy Equinox and we could not be more pleased with the choice we made. Kevin is patient, friendly and the thing we like about him the most is he is not pushy. Kevin has a good working relationship with his sales manager and together they get the job done. I would purchase another vehicle with Kevin's assistance if I was in the market for a nice car at the right price.

May 14, 2019
The vehicle is very comfortable , plenty of leg room and the ride is very smooth, the sound system is good , plenty of room for the kids
Great place to buy a vehicle. Thomas Beutow was our salesman and he went above and beyond to make sure we got the vehicle we wanted. He deserves 6 stars for his help¿ Jonny Lane was a great wealth of information on the LTZ ,he sold it new to the previous owner and sold a new one to them!! Great people all around from start to finish!! Thanks to all of you.

2014 Ford Focus SE Review
Sporty, economical, comfortable, and FUN to drive!
by LuvMyFocusTitanium from Cincinnati, OH
April 23, 2019
I love this car. I have the Titanium hatchback and it is super sporty and fun to drive. The interior is comfortable and everything is perfectly located for the driver's convenience. The push-button start and keyless entry mean no more fumbling for keys -- just leave them in a pocket or purse and go. Sony stereo sounds excellent with a subwoofer in the trunk. You can't go wrong with this model.
I stopped by the lot to eat lunch at the "Healthy in a Hurry" food truck(if you haven't tried it you should...amazing tacos!). On my way out I literally rolled down my window and gave a salesman my card and let him know I was in the market for a Yukom XL or a Suburban. I gave him some details and limitations and the rest was easy. Scotty sent me info on everything they had in there inventory everywhere right away. I didn't see anything I liked out of the gate. 3 to 4 weeks later he got a trade in that I liked. My work/life schedule didn't allow me to spend a day or two at the lot dealing with the normal car-buying experience. Scotty made the deal happen. He worked with his manager and my banker. We basically made it happen via text and email. I showed up the day I took delivery and spent 45 minutes in the dealership. Absolutely the best and most enjoyable car buying experience. I hate buying vehicles but this was very very different from any other experience. I highly recommend Scotty and his crew.
2018 Buick Enclave Essence Review
Very bad front drivers seat. Great car
by Unhappy in Iowa from Spencer
April 21, 2019
I think the engineer was paid to save money on the front seat. Very uncomfortable. My dealer is doing everything they can to make front seat comfortable not GM .
I just purchased a truck from Rick Ridings with Cory Fane. He was very professional during the sales experience and handled some unexpected situations that came up during the process. He was very accommodating with my questions and did not exert pressure to purchase at any time. Very well done, Cory.
2018 GMC Acadia SLE-2 Review
Step Up From GMC Envoy
by Davidrichard23 from Orchard Park, New York
May 9, 2019
Have a little over 6K on the car. Love the styling and it is put together well. Impressed with pickup and gas mileage. Just finished 600 mile trip and I received 28 miles to the gallon. Six cylinder engine, so I was impressed. Nice comfortable ride and very responsive. Entertainment system well designed and navigation system worth the extra cost. Seats are comfortable and adjust easily. Love the front view. Lots of glass, so you can enjoy the outdoors. Third rear seat a bit tight. Also, bit tight getting to that 3rd row. Cup holders on doors need a redesign. More like a bottle holder. My first big car was a Chevrolet Trailblazer that I owned for 12 years, followed by the purchase of a 2009 GMC Envoy. So far, I am very pleased with my investment. Hopefully it will stand the test of time, as I like to keep my vehicles for at least 10 years.
They did a great job taking care of me. Got me in and out very fast. Friendly service people. Thanks to Rocky and Dan for your work!
2019 Lincoln Navigator Reserve Review
The best SUV on the market!
by Collette from Franklin, Michigan
April 26, 2019
The best looking SUV on the market with the latest and greatest technology available for a SUV. A lot of thought went into making this vehicle. The style, performance is top notch. The stylish seats with the built in massage in the driver and passenger seats make you want to drive all day!
My wife and I were interested in a new GMC vehicle. Asked for Jon Reed upon arrival, since we had talked with him about 1 1/2 yrs ago on a Cadillac vehicle. Jon was very personable and helpful as we had remembered in past. He brought several vehicles up for us to view. We asked for a test drive of a 2019 Acadia AWD Denali. Jon explained the features of the new vehicle and rode with us on the test drive. He went through all of the possible discounts involved and came up with a price with which we were in agreement. He was very efficient with all of the paperwork involved. On October 12th, I returned to the dealership, paid for the vehicle and visited with the final paperwork person to secure license plates, etc. (He was extremely efficient an helpful as well!). John gave us a tour of the service department area and explained procedures. He got into the new GMC with me and covered all of the features. He even paired my phone (and offered to pair my wife's phone next time in). Extremely satisfied with the whole experience! When we get ready to trade again, we will be asking for Jon Reed!
2015 Chrysler Town & Country Touring Review

Great van with all the bells and whistles. Engine sounds good. Great value for the money and couldn't ask for better reliability so far. Awesome.
Great service drive and I would imagine the sales team is just as good!
2016 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Base Review
Comfort and Fuel Economy
by Hybridbeliever from LYNCHBURG, VA
April 26, 2019
It is a luxury automobile that meets my fuel economy needs with incredible comfort and performance. While the trunk space is smaller than the Avalon, which I also looked at extensively, the comfort is better.
We worked with Ellen, Jim, and Eddie and they were all spectacular to work with. We came in looking at the Ford Edge and Jeep Cherokee (the Jeep which they had brought in the same day for us from one of their other family dealerships). They asked us some more information about what our wants and needs were in our new vehicle, and with their industry knowledge and expertise, they also showed us a few other models we hadn't considered. The extra effort they showed us in looking at the other vehicles, really helped us feel even better about our final decision on what car we chose! We will definitely be back to do business with Jim's team in the future, as well as utilize their service center for routine maintenance. Highly recommended!
2018 BMW 440 Gran Coupe i xDrive Review
Awesome performance and Luxury Car
by Mark's BMW retirement Car from San Diego CA
December 28, 2018
Everything that you can ask and think of are in this car! Luxury, power and speed, style, good on fuel and reliability. My son loves this car and it's my retirement car from active duty service!
Found a 2016 Ford Explorer through cars.com. Best listing in the area! Very low mileage and excellent condition. Got about $2000 more for my trade than i would have at other dealers i visited. Ellen was very friendly and knowledgable about the Explorer and selling process. Only took a coiple hours and we out the door. Great doing business with them. My wife loves her new car!
2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T S Review
Nice practical sedan
by dianadupre from San Diego, CA
April 30, 2019
It handles well. The only real issue I’ve had consistently is with the Apple Play. It doesn’t sync 20-30% of the time. There was a slight mechanical issue and my inspection light went on when actually I wasn’t due for a service for another 4000 miles. All in all it’s a nice ride.
Visited Groosinger Motors with my neice who was looking for her first car. We had Pierre as our salesman, who was very personable and friendly. We were there on a cold night so once we selected a few cars to look at he pulled them inside and went over features on each of them. After the test drive he gave us the car history and inspection report. Never been to a dealer that helpful, great experience. When visiting Grossinger look for Pierre, you won't be disappointed.
2017 Subaru WRX STI Base Review
by Jschmidt83 from Austin Tx
January 25, 2019
I read an online review before I test drove and purchased my 2017 STI. The author wrote that the 2017 STI was just like the 2004 STI. He was right. However, he thought that was a bad thing. I think its a great thing. This is my 5th Subaru and second STI. It is what you think it will be. A tried and true STI. Gas mileage is bad. Seats are not comfortable on long drives and the interior is blah. But it goes like nothing else. I may not outrun a SRT Charger, a Mustang GT or even a Tesla in a 1/4 mile, but lets go down the windy roads or in some snow and see what happens. For a daily driver it is not the fastest, 0-60 in 4.6 on a good launch, the prettiest, or most comfortable; But, it is fun as all get out to drive. That's what you buy an STI for, to drive!
I visited Grossinger Motors in December spoke with Pierre C. I was looking to purchase a new or used car for school. I told him I wouldn't be ready to purchase until April. He treated me the same as if I was buying the same day. No pressure or games just straight foward conversation. He still calls to check on my status.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas 2.0T S Review
So far it’s amazing!
by Ashleigh M from Lynn Haven, Florida
May 14, 2019
I searched for and researched many mid-sized suvs and came across the Atlas not remembering VW now made one as well. I will have to tell you it surpassed my expectations and checked off all my needs flawlessly! I needed a family car to fit 2 car seats and 4 adults without being cramped and this works amazingly! The captain chairs give the car seats room to maneuver around, front and back since the whole seat raises not just the back! It has all the top safety features I was wanting plus the interior is just beautiful! I feel so proud of this car and can’t wait for many years in it!
