After reading all of the reviews and working with three other dealerships I made one of my best decisions in buying my Ram 2500 from Laura. I'll be honest, they weren't the easiest to get on the phone the first day but I quickly found out …

The show room was very nice and clean. My salesman Richard Blue was courteous and friendly and I would go back to him and the dealership again. The only down side is that they were busy and I had to wait 2.5 hours to sign the documents with the business manager. That is the longest I have ever waited although as soon as I was in his office it only took 5 minutes. In hind sight I would never go shopping for a vehicle again on a Saturday afternoon but would go back to Laura Jeep Ram.

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.
