I purchased my Mustang from Nick Polanowski. I was 2 states and over 8 hours away. He made the buying experience an enjoyable one and very transparent. This was my first vehicle purchase on my own and he kept me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend if you're in search of a vehicle to reach out to him.

I worked with Don and Mike to purchase a Ram and the service was excellent. I bought the truck for our Missouri location from my office in California and the paperwork was mailed to me quickly and everything was handled smoothly. I would definitely buy another vehicle from Laura Auto Group again.
