Brought my ???15 Suburban in for a recall on electronic power steering. Mentioned that my rear electronic gate was not going up all the way and asked for assistance. Service rep said more or less ???that will be $109 for us to diagnose it???. The whole approach turned us off as our other vehicle is an Audi, and that service team is always talking to us about the ins and outs of the features and how to use and maintain various things...in other words its always a conversation at the Audi dealership...not just people looking to charge us. Over time this approach has built amazing trust, loyalty, and desire to perform our service there because we know they know their product. So we said no thanks on the peoposal at Luther. For $100 we can google it and learn a ton.....and guess what...some random dealer salesman???s youtube was the first search result reviewing how to use and program the electronic rear gate on a 2015 suburban. Thats all it was...button was turned to 3/4. Luther needs to train their people on the basic features and maintenance of a complex $60,000 product instead of coming across as shallow and desperate for service tickets.
9 am service appt that took over 1 hour 20 minutes to complete. They had to simply plug into computer port (in-cab) for engine light check. My opinion - Too long for a 5-10 minute check. After 1 hour I had to see what status was...Last oil change same, slow service...
Sadly another bad service. Had high hopes because my last service was really good. Bad communication (I should say No communication) during the day of what was happening or when to expect my car back. Only called me back after I called later afternoon (3pm) when I dropped my car at 8am. Also service couldn???t get a valet to bring my car around at end of day. Service advisor overheard and went to get when I walked out to get myself which I appreciate. Pulled it around and of course it hadn???t been washed. It???s my assumption when they call to say your car is ready it???s actually ready. Again I don???t go to service for a car wash but it???s something about having pride in the cars coming off their lot I would think they would want to have that shine and good feeling when a customer leaves. But then again given the actions maybe not....
Pete made the car buying process as painless as possible while car shopping with two toddlers. He listened to our needs and directed towards a 2018 Acadia. There was no pressure to make the purchase that day and they gave us a fair price on our trade in. The entire staff treated us like family. I will definitely be choosing Valley Buick GMC for future automotive purchases. I cannot thank them enough.
I actually don't know which Tom I have worked or if I have worked with both. However, everyone there treats you with respect. They also perform the services they are asked to. Nothing more, nothing less. I just do not like the attitude of some (few) of the employees. I also did not appreciate the fact that I was not followed up with when I requested or that when called a voice message is not always left if the call is missed. I also do not like how when a call is returned, the staff members have no idea why they called as if they do not notate our accounts.
Sent an email inquiring about a vehicle and got a response. Responded to dealers email asking about hours of the business to possibly schedule a test drive and received no response. Recommend calling or just stopping by to look at a vehicle.
Awesome experience. Jerry Griffis was great to work with.

I was I need of a new vehicle. I called and was greeted by Tim Garrick. Tim was awesome to work with and he put us into the truck we wanted at a very great price. Soon after we purchased the vehicle we had a glitch that made the transmission shutter, (not a drivability issue). I made contact with Tim who immediately put me in touch with Jerry Griffis. Jerry was more than great to work with. He listened to my concerns and had my vehicle picked up at my work place. The vehicle was fixed in a very timely manner and dropped back off at my work. Jerry made certain that he answered all of my questions and did a follow up to make sure the truck was still running properly. I can???t say enough about how great Jerry and Tim were to work with. Thanks guys, you are a testament to how great a business White Bear Lake GMC is.
It was a great experience! I never felt pressured or that my saleswoman wasn???t interested. Great experience all around. Very quick turnaround. Will be happy to do do business again! Thank you Cheryl!
Cheryl Ruedy could not be more helpful and informative . When you ask questions or need information she goes the extra mile to get the correct answer in the details that you want . She made appointments and planned ahead for a vehicle I had being delivered so that a lot of extras and add-ons all got done in one day . That in itself is a miracle . Oh and she smiles even when giving you bad news. Anyone should enjoy the attention she gives.
I put in an order for a 2018 Toyota Highlander without AWD. It had all the other features I wanted, especially the color and trailer hitch. I thought I could live without AWD. After a few days I called back to cancel and get a refund of my deposit. The salesperson asked why and I told him the car did not have AWD and I decided not to buy because of that. He said ok and forwarded my call to the person who would refund my deposit. I got the refund in 3 days.
Working with Sean was great he was very informative and upfont with everything during the test drive and pulling together the financing. We did not end up purchasing the vehicle but there was never any pressure to purchase.

This review is directed on behalf of our salesman, Mr. David Middleton. From our very first visit, Dave made my wife and me feel very comfortable. We knew when we walked in, this was the van for us. Dave was very helpful in explaining all the features of this auto. There was absolutely no pressure on his part to sell us this van. We went and left a few times to think about the buying of this van. There were no phone calls made by Dave asking unnecessary questions about a potential sale. All of our communication was warm and friendly. He explained all the additional options we could have purchased in buying this van. There was no pressure on his part to push us into buying any of these add-ons. He went the extra mile to close this deal in a very warm and comfortable manner. I would recommend Dave to our friends who are looking for their future auto.
We bought a 2017 Chevy Volt after almost a year of communication with your salesman, Brett Banaszewski. He was very patient with us and we let several opportunities pass us by before we made our purchase. He was clear and accurate about all the characteristics of our used car and the various warranties, etc. He went out of his way to help us find a hard copy of the Owner's Manual. He also volunteered to ask your mechanics for a recommendation for a Duluth Chevy dealer to service our car, since our local Ashland dealer has no one certified to work on hybrid plug-ins. Good work helping us move into the new car future which we should all be considering with the dire freight train of climate change barreling down upon us. Keep buying and pushing those electric cars. We now have solar panels and are working for public charging stations in our area. Had a hard time not jumping right into a Chevy Bolt or Nissan Leaf, but coming from deep rural we felt it was still prudent to buy a hybrid. Thank you. You and Brett can count on our recommendation to others. Linda Jorgenson and Jack Gunderson
I was in the market to buy a new truck this fall. Being my first truck purchase, I was nervous and didn't know what to expect. I came to the WBL Superstore after a friend recommended it. I couldn't be HAPPIER with that decision. The folks at the WBL Superstore were knowledgeable, friendly, and most of all, not pushy! They helped me find the truck of my dreams at my pace. Everyone from the sales team, to the finance team, to the management team, they all made my experience unforgettable. Shopping at the WBL Superstore truly is the Premium Experience!
A great experience all around, Cheryl was attentive and professional. Great staff, and the truck is immaculate. We were in and out in 3 hours.
