Love my '15 Chrysler 200S AWD
November 6, 2018
Disclaimer: Ryan is my brother, but what I am saying below is 100 percent true. He truly took the time to put me in multiple vehicles, did not push his wants on me, and made sure to point out any issues the car I was buying had (and had them services before I took it off the lot). I needed a car after my BMW died after a long life. Fixing it would cost at least $3,600 and probably more next year for transmission work. So I reached out to Ryan at Merchants. Originally, I was looking at at '15 VW Passat, but as we drove it and really looked into other options, I realized I wanted something AWD and maybe a little more power. We checked out Subarus and other VWs until we came across a '15 Chrysler 200S AWD. I had heard they were not great cars, but Ryan mentioned the '15 were overhauled and were getting more positive reviews. Upon quick research, I saw he was right. Once I settled on this car, he worked with me to address all financing issues quickly. While I have solid credit, these things can still take time. He did prep work to make sure all issues were addressed without hesitation. However, where he shone was the servicing of the car. When we looked at the 200S, it had just arrived at Merchants. It drove fine to me, but he had the service department spend two days making sure it was perfect. He even stayed after work on a Sunday (4:30 p.m.) to make sure I got my car before my work week started. Again, while I am related to Ryan, he could have easily used that to cut corners (and I likely wouldn't have said anything). However, his customer service approach and time to really seek out what the customer wants is how sales should be. If you get Ryan as a sales associate, I truly believe you will find him to be someone who want you to come back to Merchants for future purchases.
