Ray Chevrolet in Fox Lake, IL. Good prices on the cars, but go with cash.
Will low ball on the trade in and will not give competitive rates on the loan so make sure you go prequalified with your own company. I told them what other dealers were offering in trade, from 3K to 3.8K and my credit union was prequalified for 2.9%.

1. Offered $1000.00 on trade of a 2006 Chrysler 300.
2. "Best" interest rate they could come up with us 5.5% and pressured to get the loan from them.
3. As I demanded my keys back after getting tired of asking for them, heard the sales manager as the salesman if he should have offered me $3000.00 on the trade.

By the time I got home, about two hour drive, they offered 3800 on the trade and requested I come back out.

Turned it down and ended up with my sweet 2LT a few days later from a local dealer.

For service department, Bill Deluca's Woodworth Chevrolet Cadillac in Andover, MA. is Great!

David Brown is the Service Director there..... The guy went out of his way to get my Camaro fixed right. I might even go back there to get my '14 SS (1LE).

Dealership: Banner Chevy, New Orleans, LA

Purchase: I checked most dealerships from Baton Rouge to Mobile, AL. I got the first price from Banner and it turned out to be best.

Service: I have only been to their service dept twice but so far so good. Neither of my issues have been mod-related though.

Northeast Ohio?
Two good dealerships come to mind.
Classic Chevy Madison Ohio( Salesman Tom Hook)
Progressive Chevy Massillon Ohio (Salesman Jim Hall)

As with any dealership - do your homework before going in to buy.

And if you have a good idea where $$ you'd like to be with price, be prepared to buy with either of these two guys.

Have purchased 3 vehicles there. Good friend was our sales associate who confirmed the inner workings of their sales team as sound. I know that we are very happy with how our purchases went.

My cousins fiancé was also a mechanic there and I've always been satisfied with their service end as well.

That's surprising because Day Chevrolet in Monroeville, PA on golden mile highway is TERRIBLE.

Only dealer i will ever let touch any of my cars again in socal... figured out a oil pressure issue when i had something in my pickup tube. 4 other dealers told me it was fine.

Dealership....not sure if counts as they are not a Chevy dealer, but they were patient and made me feel as if I left the place with a great deal.

Hyundai on Perryville in Rockford, IL.

We actually made the deal for the Camaro on the phone going back and forth over a couple hours as I was playing games online.

OK for New Jersey...

Stealership: Pine Belt Chevrolet (on Route 88 in Lakewood)
Dealership: Circle Chevrolet (in Shrewsbury)

When I bought my current Camaro I went to Pine Belt first and it just didn't seem like they wanted to sell me a car that day. The car that I wanted was something that they just couldn't seem to find (I think they wanted to sell me something off their lot).

When I stopped into Circle Chevrolet, the mood of just walking in the front door seemed better already. They didn't have the exact car I wanted, but they found it in Pennsylvania (the same way Pine Belt could have...if they wanted to) and the sales experience couldn't have gone better from start to finish.

As for my trade in, Pine Belt low-balled me and when I didn't seem happy about the offer they started offering me more money for my trade-in. With Circle Chevrolet the first offer for a trade-in value was more (slightly) than the eventual last offer from Pine Belt.

One other thing is that I had a $1,000 Chevrolet Loyalty Check to use for my purchase. With Pine Belt they wanted to give me $1,000 worth of add-ons and use the coupon that way. With Circle Chevrolet, they let me take the $1,000 off the price of the deal they made me for the car.

Without a doubt...Dealership = Circle Chevrolet (Shrewsbury). Stealership = Pine Belt (Route 88 in Lakewood).

Good to deal with and no issues about mt GM Family discount. They also did me right about NOT taking my lease as trade-in (it was better to just pay the last three payments and "ground" it)

So according to "your" rules. If you do have a drivetrain or engine issue, and they run the calibrations in your ECM through the system as they are required to by GM. Then your powertrain warranty gets voided as it is suppose to under GM's guidelines, they will then become a stealership in your eyes?????????????? No self accountability even comes into question here????

Stealership - Kocourek in Wausau, WI

Did damage to my camaro, refused to repair it saying it was fine. After threatening lawyers on them they ended up paying another shop to fix it which was a little over $3,000. The guy I dealt with at the dealership was a complete waste of life and the owner wasn't much better.

Oh not to mention they try to drag out any issues that would be covered under warrenty so that when warrenty is up you all of a sudden have tons of issues that need fixing.

Stealership - Brickners of Wausau

Bought two cars from them the same day. One was a brand new 08 heritage 300c, other was a 06 charger r/t. They were very friendly at first until our two sales. I was in the marker for a new car (wanted a challenger before a camaro) and they were extremly rude to me and wouldn't allow me to test drive the SRT8 they had on the lot. They also registered the 300 at over 100k miles so warrenty was scrap (even though we onlu put 28k on the car) and it took a month of dicking around to get it taken care of. They also installed cheap breaks on the car but charged us for their higher quality ones and again it was a hissy fit.

Dealership - O'maleys in Wausau, WI

Very friendly, they seem to be the only dealership I've been at tjat seems to care about you and your car. The owners are very down to earth. They also do good quality work and I always do repeated business with them
No negatives so far.
