Long distance sale made stress free
December 3, 2018
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.
