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.

Laura is an amazing dealership. I recently bought my second vehicle from this franchise and the process was seamless. Kurt my sales associate was very well mannered and professional through the entire process. This dealership is not out to get over on you and will work for your needs! I recommend them to everyone!

This is my fourth Jeep purchase and my ninth vehicle purchase from a dealer in my lifetime. Laura Chrysler made this purchase stress free. There was no pressure, no surprises, and very friendly service. A special thank you to the salesman I worked with, Jeff Kohler. He made the purchase of our 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk a breeze. Jeff made sure everything was in order over the phone before we drove over 2 hours from our home to make the trade. Once we got there we were out the door in less than two hours with our new Jeep. I can't say enough good things about Laura Chrysler. If you are in the market for a new vehicle, give them a call and ask for Jeff Kohler, tell him I sent you.
