I just purchased a 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave from Laura Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram on Saturday. I had a great trade experience with Nicholas Polanowski. I negotiated the deal via phone and email and drove 2.5 hours to get to the dealership. My negotiated price did not change after getting to the dealership and I purchased the Jeep without hassle or pressure to "add on" features to my financed amount. It was a pleasure working with Nicholas Poanowskit and Berkley Parker.Thanks Ryan, enjoy your new Gladiator!
