New Hampshire: Where to Purchase

Hi, I'm about ready to take the plunge on an SS and had a couple of questions:
  1. What options should I make sure to get?
  2. Does it make a difference what dealer I order from in terms of delivery speed/ ability to get a car?
I'm in Dover, NH if it matters, we go down to RI pretty often to see my dad, so I could pick one up in either place. Thanks!

I'd definitely check out Mac Mulkin over here in Nashua, NH. They seem to have a good reputation on here, and even though I ordered through another dealer, he had no problem checking my order status for me. To me, that shows extreme Customer Service.

What sort of options do you want? What is your price range? I figured if I'm going to drop 30k+ on a vehicle, I better make sure I'm happy, so I got mine fully loaded.

STAY AWAY FROM DOVER AUTO WORLD!!!!!

I purchased a new Honda from them a while ago and so far so good.
Chevy side of the dealership--most have been JERKS. I pulled up with my new Camaro with paper plates still on it and they were trying to get me to buy their 1LT for $35,272! Check my post @ Price Gouging Dealers #840 They called me a liar when I told them I paid sticker at Banks in Concord.
I pre-ordered from Banks and they have always treated me right. I was on their waiting list in March of 2008.

I'm too old to make it very noisy, but I was looking at the different exhaust options on the 2SS. Price in the $33-36k range, ideally.

I agree with the other posters here.....I currently live and Dover and went to Dover Auto World and got the worst service I have ever experienced at a dealership. I am only 22 so they did not take me seriously at all, they thought I was some punk kid who just wanted to look at it.....Therefore I went to MacMulkin Chevy in Nashua and they had great service. Not only did they take my GM recent grad discount but they had the allocations to put it in the week after I ordered it. All around great service. Very nice and no pressure.

Thanks. I wound up at Portsmouth Chevrolet yesterday-- they had an allocation at 3000 that I was able to change into what I want. Hoping to hear good news today.

What day did you go to Dover Auto World-- I saw a younger guy there when I got back from my test drive.

I bought mine at Portsmouth Chevrolet from Don Bullard. I have nothing but good things to say about this dealership. I stop in from time to time to say hi to the Boys.

Tell him you know me (Dan Howard). They will give you MSRP on a Camaro. They aren't discounting them yet - Anything else they will give you a really good discount.

Don already has me at the top of the list if GM makes a Z/28!

Excellent dealership

I got mine from Walier Chevrolet in Keene. Got it for MSRP and Dan Fortunato was absolutely the best salesperson I have ever dealt with in over 30 years of car buying. I bought it over the phone with a $100 deposit on a credit card. I live south of Boston and I couldn't find anything around here. It was well worth the drive for me.

Like previously mentioned Macmulkin is great! I ordered mine from there and they were all professional and really nice guys, especially Ron and Tommy. One of the best parts, I'm military so I was able to get mine for the supplier price hehe

I bought mine in Manchester NH from Quirk and it was a much better experience then my initial dealership - they kept BSing me on my order and I'm still fighting to get my money back.
The guys at Quirk were awesome though. I called about a 2LT (ended up being the wrong color and that was #1 for me) and they lured me to the 2SS that was sitting there. It was the right color, already had the rally stripes and is BEAUTIFUL! It was an easy sell but they made the process so smooth and quick I was amazed.
I've had mine for two weeks now and couldn't be happier.

Mine arrived yesterday. Portsmouth Chevy and Don were a pleasure to deal with (but I suppose the car buying process is always easier when there's no real chance to haggle). Don said he's moved 5 or 6 (at least 3 here in Dover, counting me) and the dealership has sold enough (15) that they're getting a larger allocation going forward.

Congrat's Tclancy!

I will see you in The Dover or Portsmouth Area somewhere... I am sure.

I should see mine about 3 weeks or so from now - back from Lingenfelter.

Ha, Don mentioned your car yesterday. If you see me, it'll probably be in your rear view.

I've purched a few cars from Portsmouth Chevrolet and they are a good dealership.

Not sure if they still advertise it but they give free inspection stickers if you buy the car there and at today's prices it's a nice bonus.
