Good guy dealership request:

Maybe we could post dealerships with whom we have good rapport or had a good experience? It might help those who are searching for new vehicles.

Bergeys is about an hour north of Philadelphia. Saw the jeep I wanted on their lot and made a deal in a few hours. No BS and came in about 4% under invoice. Most simple buying experience I've had yet.

How's their service department? The dealership I'm fleeing has a great sales side of the house, but their service department leaves everything to be desired.

I haven't had any experience with it yet, only have had the jeep for a month, but there parts department was great. I bought a softop off craigslist and the guy didn't have the mountain brackets, their parts department got me the brackets by that afternoon even though they didn't have them in stock.

Daytona Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep in the Daytona Auto Mall. They understand that...it's ok to MODIFY your Jeep. Support and sponsor JeepBeach event. Always had prompt warranty service with minimal grief or issues.

I used Lansdale Jeep in MontCo, about 45 mins North of Philly on SR 309.

The buying experience was easy and they even did all the paperwork for my credit union loan.

Lithia Jeep in Santa Fe. Marc Golan is my sales person. If you go there, use my name and give him HELL! Service is pretty good too.

In Carthage Missouri we were towed to John Hoffer Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram when we had transmission problems and they had that Jeep on a rack before I could salvage my wife from the tow truck. They did a great job and went over and above the call of duty to get us on the road in the shortest time possible. No idea about sales.

Yeah, I've for a taste in my mouth I cannot describe from one in my area and I figured everyone couldn't possible have had a bad experience so I posted this to be a resource.

Patrick isn't there any more and Ryan Eiland FLOOR MANAGER that answered my email after 4 days hasn't called me like he said in 2 days.

I understand that I am not a confirmed buyer, but at least talk to me.

May have to deal with my local dealer who is great on service but not sales.

My 3 cents.....

I worked with Eli Luber at Fields, he was great. Eluber@fieldsauto.com. 847-226-0378. I'd buy from him again...in fact when my wife buys her 2 door we'll buy from him again. He and a guy from the service group installed my soft top no charge this spring.

Rockland Chrysler in Nanuet, NY. Excellent deal, great staff with no pressure. They even threw in 6 free oil changes without me asking.

I'm still here!!!! In NORTHFIELD IL!!!!

@PapasJP, I did forward your email on to the GSM(Brian Williams), he then asked Ryan to get in touch with you. Obviously it didn't go as planned, so I called Ryan this morning and told him to call/email you right now. Since your situation is your situation, I can't go into details here, but just know that they have been working on two different options, trying to see which way works best for your situation.

I apologize that they didn't convey that to you and have not been in contact. For that, I'm going to kick Brian's A$$ next time he is here

Tim Rodewald specifically is a good guy to deal with. i almost bought my jeep from him and did "buy" a jeep for a friend through him.
