Recommendation for a local (Mpls metro) Chevy dealer?

Question

quijibo

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.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
