Bottom Line: RM Stoudt is the best dealership I have EVER worked with. There are certain companies and people that just "get it" and RM Stoudt has earned first shot at every car purchase I make in the future, regardless of where I live.
Hands-down the best first offer I have ever received with the least amount of hustle. While I sometimes appreciate the "no-haggle" places, I don't mind negotiating when it comes to a $45-$55K purchase. RM Stoudt's offer simply could not be beat. I didn't hesitate to make the 5-hour round trip to pick up the new Jeep...Dean (Haas) even offered to meet me halfway! If you're reading reviews on dealerships, you have probably been given a few lines from dealers about MSRP, trade value, undercoating (ugh), overpriced GAP coverages, etc. Well, don't expect that at RM Stoudt. I am confident you will get a great deal and if you're concerned about any extras, they'll walk you through those options rather than try to sell you on them.
My car search spanned 2.5 months, 8 dealerships, and 11 makes/models. RM Stoudt had excellent selection, better prices (by thousands!), friendly people, and they listened to what I wanted rather than try to upsell me on a bunch of other options, etc. They (Thanks Jim!
Go UMARY!) beat my bank's interest rate by 1% even with a long-term contract.
There are other good dealerships out there, and great salespeople that I truly like...and while it can be tough to differentiate between the good ones, RM Stoudt STANDS ALONE as the best of the bunch.
