We recently decided to do more camping in the future. Along with that decision came a HUGE financial dilema and a financial problem that other Auto / Truck Dealers in the Fox River Valley simply said "we can't help you, because you owe too much on your trade-in". After hearing that line... (no less than 3 times), we decided to check out Lenz Truck Center and see if they could help us. Our problem was that we indeed "owed more than the car was worth". In 2012 I had purchased a New 2013 Dodge Dart at an area dealership. It was a Great Little Car and it had awesome reviews and awards... but I bought it immediately after filing 'bankruptcy' in 2012. Besides that, the car was not "well received", and many New Car Dealers in the Upper Midwest still have many 'brand new 2013 Dodge Darts on their lots! Not to mention 2014s and in September... here comes the 2015s. Translated, what that did to me, was drive the 'overall value' of my car way..... down. So that it was now worth roughly $8,500.00 less than I now owed on it. I forgot to mention my 'finance rate' was at 22.9% when I purchased it... due to the fact of my recent 'bankruptcy'. I never had a late or missed payment on that car, and most Dealerships didn't want to give me the time of day! Then in 2013 I was injured at work and became 'disabled' and my gal was found with 'Breast Cancer' as well.
That is when I checked out Lenz Truck Center. The very next day Brad Lenz one of the owners of Lenz Truck called me to discuss my plan
in regard to 'trading in a 1.5 year old car with under 16,500 miles and in 'excellent condition'. I told Brad that we wanted to buy a Truck to
pull a 5th Wheel, or Camping Trailer and trade in the 2013 Dart. Brad went right to work, called me back 2 more times that day, asked a few
more questions and said... "We will find a way to help you folks out"!
Yesterday we left their Lot in a 2011 Ford F-150 Lariat 4X4 with gobs of Super Nice Options, it was just what we needed and wanted to pull our 'future' camper trailer. Brad worked to get us a Way Better Bank Rate, and yes, we lost money on that 'Trade-In', but much less than other Dealerships were trying to 'throw our way', if they tried some to help at all. So we are VERY PLEASED with our purchase at Lenz Truck Center, and we recommend them to anybody who is looking for a "Nice Truck at a Great Price", besides they have a very friendly and courteous staff. They had us in and out as 1st time buyers in under 2 hours! Most Dealers didn't seem to want to help us, as I mentioned above, especially after I mentioned I also had a 'Heart Attack' in 2013. To say 2013 was a 'bad year' for us is an under statement for sure.
I think the World of Brad Lenz and the staff at Lenz Truck Center and so does my gal, mainly because they "Deliver on their Promises".
I Recommend This Dealer:
