This was our first time purchasing from Laura Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, but it was a really positive experience from beginning to end. We worked with Nick Polanowski for the sales process and my husband did the majority of the discussions …

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. …Thanks Ryan, enjoy your new Gladiator!

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.
