Dealer Praise Thread (Not an Idiot!)
I see many, many threads about how many dealers are idiots. I think it's easy to talk about the bad stuff and not think twice.

How about a nice thread about your dealer (dealer name and salesperson/manager) who is really doing the right thing for you?

Let's see 'em.


This is NOT a bash GM thread so please keep it on topic. Please do not hijack this thread with your own agenda.

Any attempts to hijack will be reported to mods immediately.

These guys have been awesome so far. I will buy from them again in the future...That is assuming that GM will let me have this car first!!

But these guys are awesome, and they both are true car guys!

Outstanding customer service! Always keep me in the loop (when there kept in the loop by GM and Chevrolet of course). Always willing just to sit down and shoot the sh**. Selling at MSRP. Straight shooters. True Champs!! You can guarantee I will continue to buy every new Chevrolet from Gus Paulos Chevrolet for the rest of my life. My Parents did before me and I hope my kids will do the same.

Bankston Chevrolet - Dallas, TX
Howard Zucker - Fleet Manager
Jeff Moore - Sales Manager.

They were helpful on 10/15, got the order confirmed on 10/16. Guaranteed MSRP or better, depending on incentives and fleet pricing policies at delivery. Put up with 3 color changes and understood on the 3rd that I was serious about waiting until Summit White goes "live". Shifted me from priority 1 to priority last on pre-order list to get what I finally decided I wanted. Let me test drive their SS this afternoon.

A little rough at first due to lack of information but for last several months they have exceeded expectation. Just purchased a cover for my car and Kent actually walked over to parts with me and made sure that even that transaction went smooth. I now have no problem getting copies of my workbench order when I ask for it and not feeling rushed to get me out of the door. He mentioned that they are going to be proactive with GMPP parts and have put together a program to further customize my car upon delivery. They have several packages available or can do ala carte if I choose. They have come to awknowledge Camaro5 and it accurate information stream and rather than fighting over it they have empbraced it and the information that the experts convey. Overall I would rate them a 9.5 out of ten. Only early communication issues are holding them back from a perfect 10.

Good thread RPO. Things were getting a little intense around here lately and hopefully this thread will highlight some of the positives again.

I spoke with several, closer dealers in the Tulsa area before we went to Jim Glover Chevrolet in Tulsa.

Our salesman is Rob Malone. He answered what he could and listened to what we knew. He wanted his customer to be satisfied.

Randy orders the cars and was a pleasure to work with. He immediately gave us our Workbench form. Rob later gave us his 2010 Camaro exterior colors brochure when we went in to ask Randy to change to polished wheels(which he gladly did and gave us an updated Workbench).

I know Rob is a member of Camaro5.

This thread was a good idea since a lot of times they (dealers) hear only bad things. There are many, many good dealers (both a part of and not a part of this and other forums).
