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 over the phone with him. He was extremely helpful and had the car clean and waiting for us to test drive when we arrived. Don went above and beyond to get us the best finance deal he could and we were extremely happy!! We will definitely be working with this dealership in the future and willing to refer them to friends and family. We love our Tahoe! Thanks again!
