Recommendation for a local (Mpls metro) Chevy dealer?

5 posts in this topic

After two weeks of trying to work with dealers on GMBuypower, I've decide to just let a local dealer find the truck I want. I won't use my old dealer. Since being bought by Lupient they have squeezed out my sales guy(Ed Keane, where are you?) and thrown me under the bus at every opportunity.

I'm looking for an old school dealer. The kind that employs salesmen for life and doesn't make them stick it to their customers just to make more than $75/ car. I also probably won't go with a dealer that made their mechanics to go on strike either.

I apologize if I am being difficult, but it's getting harder and harder to find a dealer that deserves the kind of money that they pull in.

I am blessed to be able to get employee pricing(brother). It's a shame that the biggest problem I have with GM is their dealers.

I would appreciate hearing about the positive experiences that you have had with your dealers and sales people in particular.

Thanks in advance

I go through Friendly Chev out of Fridley. Great people and I've had nothing but good experiences with them. Might be worth a shot...

We've had good service from Ryan Chev & Cad in Buffalo. They're in the very west metro, but for all the searching we've done across the state, they always seem to come up with the biggest dealer discounts and best prices. Salesmen we've delt with so far have been very good (Harley is a good guy). I'd stay far away from the finance guy named Kevin or something of that nature (starts with a K - pretty sure it's Kevin). He's a horsesarse! They have other, more personable finance guys there though.

good luck!

Thanks guys, That's the info I'm looking for. May have to put the purchase on hold though. My wife just got a promotion that would require us to move to Denver. Not good news for a pheasant hunting Union carpenter. There's no ringnecks and no living wage frown.gif . Her job says they will find me "comparable" employment. The truck will have to wait until I find out what that means.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
