I spent several thousand dollars in the last 60 days on my existing 190,000 mile vehicle and yesterday something else showed its ugly head and it became evident I was beginning to throw good money after bad. I called Kathy McKinney at Thompson Dodge and met with her at the appointed time. Kathy, knowing my preference for pickup trucks from our phone conversation already had her thoughts in order as to what vehicles I might be interested in. The first pre-owned Ram she showed us fit the bill almost to a "T". It was as near to a perfect fit as could be imagined. Kathy pulled the Car Fax report and presented all other pertinent information in an easy to understand manner. She presented us with an equitable selling price and we agreed on the deal. When she finished with us we went to visit Russ the finance person who was just as thorough and prepared. After all the documentation was completed Kathy took me out to my Ram truck and spent considerable time going over all the operating and comfort features of the truck and stayed with me until I was comfortable with them.
It's a rare commodity when a sales person listens to your needs and then presents product solutions that fill those needs in a professional yet friendly, non threatening, no pressure manner. Kathy did that and more. This was truly a wonderful buying experience.
Thanks Kathy and the Thompson Dodge/Ram team.

My wife and I recently purchased a vehicle from Tate Dodge (12/17/13). When we arrived at the dealership, we were met by a salesman (Anthony Stewart). Anthony asked what we were looking for and pointed us in the right direction. He was not overbearing and did not try to pressure us into anything. We were able to find the vehicle we wanted with all of the amenities but it was a little out of our price range. Anthony was understanding and tried to work with us on the price. In order to get the price we wanted, Anthony brought his General Manager (Shawn Frick) into the deal. Shawn also was very helpful and not pressuring. After us being a pain to both Shawn and Anthony, they were able to give us, what I believe to be a good deal on the vehicle we wanted. After the numbers were crunched, we went to finance. Our finance person was Jerry Tannever. Keeping suit with the rest of our experience, Jerry was very helpful and again did not try to push anything on us. Jerry simply offered us the warranties they sell and when we refused, he didn't keep pushing the issue. Jerry was able to get us in the payment range we wanted with a great interest rate. Our overall experience was great and we recommend this dealership to anyone. Make sure to ask for Anthony.
