2014 Ford F250 Lariat Super Duty Platinum
May 26, 2017
I found a truck that I liked through cars.com, at Gregg Smith Ford in Clinton MO.
I drove down from Des Moines IA (4HRS) I got there, i was greeted very quickly. Almost immediately, I was handed the keys to the truck so I could kick the tires.
After the test drive, I sat down with Dwayne Compton, my sales person. He was very polite, funny, but professional as well. We talked about the truck, which he admitted to not knowing everything detail and gadget about it, but was quick to find answers to every question that I had. I offered my 2013 Hyundai Sonata as a trade. This didn't go as well as I had hoped. I thought that I would get a couple more thousand than was offered. After some haggling , we agreed on a price, and soon I was signing paperwork. I was then greeted by Gregg Smith himself. The owner was there on a Saturday afternoon. Impressive, at least to me. He was a riot. He gave Dwayne the gas card and instructed him to fill my F250 Super Duty 6.7 Powerstroke with diesel. Well alright!! That was $64 right there.
All in all it was a pleasant experience. Everyone was nice. I have bought a bunch of cars from many different dealerships, and this place was one of the nicer ones I've had to endure. They offered me coffee/soda/water, and doughnuts.
The visit took about 3.5 hours, but considering that I was buying from out-of-state, and dickering over the price of my trade. I was still left impressed. The dealership is kinda small but warm and welcoming. I would consider buying there again if they had the vehicle that I was looking for. Even though it is 180 miles from home.
