We spent three months researching and test driving vehicles. Once we determined exactly what we wanted, we started working with our local dealer to find it (they did not have what we wanted on their lot). It was a huge waste of time. We stumbled across an XC90 at Royal South Volvo which is 3.5 hours and out-of-state from where we live. Two phone calls and a few pictures later, we had a great price on our new vehicle, including a really solid price on my trade-in. They knew I didn’t want to waste an entire day traveling only to be disappointed and they did not disappoint. This was honestly THE best car shopping experience of my life and I absolutely hate car shopping. Ask for Nick or Ryan and they will take very good care of you.

After doing some damage to my 2017 Mazda 6, and getting into mountain biking with my best buddy. I thought that a CX-9 would better be set up for getting around places and much better visibility. My brother is the only Mazda Master Mechanic in southern Indiana and I asked him who was the best salesman there and he said Don Hamrick. And that had know him a number of years and purchased a number of cars from him. Don was great and when through all the books with me, but most were similar to the Mazda 6 that I had. Then Mark was ready for me and he was great, even got me a whole percentage point lower that I had been paying and a lower payment. Over all it was an outstanding experience. I am stuck on Mazdas for life. And Royal South Mazda Volvo dealership for life.
I was on the way to Bloomington from western Illinois to spend time with my brother when a light came on indicating low tire pressure on all 4 tires of my 1-year old Volvo XC60. I checked the pressure and it was fine so I phoned my home dealer who reassured me it was likely a computer glitch. However, my husband wanted me to get it looked at right away, so I phoned Royal South the next morning. Though they were too busy to schedule an appointment, they said if I could drop it off and leave it, they might be able to work it in. I had it there by 9:00, and got the call before noon that the computer error was corrected. Thanks to the great service there, I had true peace of mind driving back home again with no worries about tires or the computer!
