Great experience, easy transaction, just what we wanted - mattr
Mitch is the man! He was able to find the exact vehicle we wanted with no hassle. I originally talked to Mitch a year ago, but didn't end up buying from him. The next time I needed a vehicle, he contacted me again and was super helpful. Mitch priced multiple different configurations and helped us find the best combination of options for us. He was very knowledgeable about the vehicle even though it was a brand new model. If he didn't have the answer on hand, he didn't BS us with nonsense just to sell the car, but instead searched for the correct info.
Buying a car here was a pleasure - valerieg
Fred Frederick made buying a car easy and stress free. They were able to get the exact car I wanted quickly and at a good price. They didn't "over sell" or push me to move more quickly than I wanted to. I would buy there again. I worked with Charlie Wallace who was friendly, patient (with my many questions) and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
We bought our first Jeep - nsj2722
Shawn was great! He was very helpful and got us what we wanted. He took his time with us because of negative experiences in the past with Ford. We are usually a Toyota family but I think we will now be Jeep. We love our new Renegade.

Dream come true - tona burrell
When I walked into Thompson today I didn't expect/nor was I planning to get a car. I was there with my mom to purchase her car. EJ Hightower, the salesman who assist my mom ask me was I interested in getting a car also. I reluctantly said no because I didn't think my credit was good enough to get one. He then proceeded to tell me that I would be surprised as to how they can help me get in a car, before I knew it I was approved with no money down and drove out of there with a all white 300 Chrysler. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. He went over and beyond in assisting my mom and I. I highly recommend anyone looking to get a car to go to Thompson's and ask for EJ Hightower.You will be pleasantly surprised of what he can do for you.
Wonderful Experience - Clyde2016
Had no intention of buying a new vehicle. Stopped in to waste some time and look at Ram 1500.Kim came while I was looking at a white Laramie Longhorn. Wound up in her cubicle and picked up my white Laramie Longhorn the next day. Great experience. Felt no pressure to buy the vehicle from Kim or Barry her manager. I surely would buy there again.
Another GREAT Service Experience - CT
Daniel Rosenblum was GREAT from the outset,very friendly,professional,smartly dressed and NO pushing services,as always,AND I got more than a grunt outta Victor!!!Things are looking UP!
Anyhoo,only needed an oil change this time,was recommended a tire rotation and engine filter change but declined as I had already done both a week of so before,they advised me that there is a current open recall for sun visor wiring,(was already aware of it as FCA and the forum I belong to notify us)but having no issues with it and knowing the actual repair can actually "cause more issues/fire"(nothing to do with Heritage,actually a problem with the FCA repair),I was pleased Daniel didn't push this and respected I didn't want to have it touched.They updated my PCM after he took the time to inform me of what the update would do.Very professional.
After my oil change and PCM update,Daniel advised me my brake fluid needed changed,my front tires were getting tired and my rear brake pads will need changed in a few thousand miles,all of which Heritage will do for me as they earned the business by not being pushy.I like that.Sure I could get this done elsewhere for less,BUT I trust them and I prefer,owning a Jeep,having my Jeep maintained by a Dealership,especially the Dealership where I purchased it,makes perfect sense to me.
Again,they have NEVER "pressure sold" me any service on my vehicle,(Victor did once with my wife's Jeep,but after she called me,I pointed out the service he was talking about Jeep recommends it being done at 100,000 miles,hers at that time,only having 22,000 on it,he acknowledged it didn't need done),remember,the onus is on YOU as the owner to be familiar with what needs serviced and when, as the Service Advisors go by the YEAR of your vehicle,they are NOT trying to shake you down,just going by guidelines.
After my oil change was done,the technician drove the car to the parking lot,took out the paper floor protector and the plastic seat cover protector.Whys that important?How many times have you seen 'technicians drive a car like they stole it?He drove it as I would,slowly and sensibly.Thankyou sir!.I appreciated him taking the paper and plastic out.Again,Thankyou sir!When I got to my vehicle,as usual, no oily hand prints on the steering wheel,no oil on my seats and NO oily foot prints on my carpets.I have a black interior so doesn't really matter,BUT my wife has brown/beige in hers and has NEVER had any oil marks anywhere.UNLIKE the Chevy Dealership next door that ruined a carpet,left tools under the hood and a rag on the manifold and dipstick sitting on the inside of the fender,needless to say,I no longer own a Chevy,nor will I.
I LOVE my Jeep Grand Cherokee,Uber well built,fully loaded and bought from Heritage at an incredibly fair price,and they also have ALL my servicing requirements as they do it very well and have NEVER had a problem with anything,whys this important?I have been using Heritage for some 13 years now,purchased 14 vehicles from Dodge/Jeep most from Russell Troxell,the legendary Kenny always the manager involved,and I LOVE playing hardball with him,great guy,friendly and very helpful and honest when he tells you "this really is all we can do on price,out the door".
I know there is a lot of unrelated information on this review,especially as it's "just an oil change" but I want people to know I have been going there for 13 years,have bought 14 vehicles and I genuinely trust them on everything they have done.Never been pressure sold a vehicle,nor a service,and I have had some expensive services done,including tires,brake replacements etc,and have never had problems.
Hope this review helps those looking for a trustworthy servicing home for their vehicles.Just remember,upon your 1st visit they do for a very thorough check of your vehicle and will list any and all things that need attention.They ARE NOT trying to sell you things you don't need,they are just letting you know.For example,all my wife's vehicles,we bought brand new,and have serviced there too,couple of mine were bought pre owned.Never been stuffed on unnecessary services,and on one very expensive repair,they brought me into the service area and showed me the issues,which I appreciated, and had the repairs done.My point again and again,VERY trustworthy.Remember,this IS a FCA Dealership,so you WILL pay more per hour for service,BUT,they absolutely stand behind their work. Technicians are VERY friendly too.
Genuine 5 Star Dealership and NOT a 0 Star Stealership.Never done work over $50 without contacting me first.(would trust them anyway,but a nice touch contacting me first).
Thanks again for another very pleasant interaction and good job well done,sorry to anyone reading,and thinking "what the xxxx" on such a long review.I don't get ANY discounts in any way,nor do I know anyone who works there,I am just a VERY happy/satisfied customer who has learned I can trust them completely as they have earned that over 13 years.
Great experience - Chris15
The customer service was wonderful. Andrea Figliozzi was very helpful and understanding of our needs. She has a lot of knowledge and is very dedicated.
3rd time buyer - tcrick89
First time truck buyer (Dodge Ram 1500 Quad). I dealt with Laura Mahoney-Hawkins for the last 2 vehicles and will not hesitate to do it again. Quick service, in and out. No BS you find with other dealerships. Great buying experience. See Laura! The rest if the staff was great to deal with as well.
Don't buy from Mussleman's Dodge! - Brad S.
Mussleman's Dodge is a bunch of scam artists and crooks. They lied, cheated, and scammed me for $5,000 on the purchase of my vehicle. I do not trust them and would never recommend them to anyone. I would have given them zero stars, but it wouldn't let me.
THE WORST DEALERSHIP IN AMERICA - sam
Bought a car last year and was ripped off my down-payment of $10000. So many hiding charges and inflated price from the one advertised. Don't every deal with the used sales manager Jerome, he is the most dishonest man in the world. I've been completely devastated since spending my hard earned $10000 in cook motors.
Inexpierienced - Brandan Akins
I took a truck in for a 2" front, 1" rear leveling kit install, and a 4 wheel alignment. After a full day with my truck, I was informed that they needed it overnight, and was I aware that my truck would be lifted 4".?????? Lol,lol. Seriously. If your not familiar with very common spacer kits, than maybe you shouldn't schedule them. Thanks for wasting a full day of my time.
Sales-bait and switch- Women be ware!! - Suzanne
I called Don Whites when my transmission went up on my 2002 Jeep Liberty for the 2nd time. I needed a car immediately. I spoke to the sales person over the phone and told him that I wanted a 6 cylinder Jeep Cherokee and gave him the specifications I was looking for. He assured me that I had come to the right place. He tried to talk me into a 4 cylinder when I got there and I told him "absolutely not" as I had just driven one at Heritage and it drove like a go cart. He finally said he had the car for me and brought it around. I read the specs on the car that were listed on the window and everything was there except the leather seats. Keenan said they could be installed the following week. We negotiated the price and I left with the new car. On the drive home I noticed that the car was not shifting properly. I called Don Whites and they said that I was just not used to it and to make sure it wasn't slipping into manual mode. I drove it for a few weeks, not happy with the performance. The car hesitates to the point that it is unsafe to make a left hand turn if there is any oncoming traffic. You never know if it is going to move or not. In addition, when I go over a speed bump there is this God awful grinding noise and vibration under the break peddle. Twice, the tailgate has come down on my head while I was standing under it. It doesn't stop even if you try to push it up with your hand. This is a safety issue. What would happen if a child was standing under it when it came down?
I switched cars with my neighbor for a day and when he returned with the car, I asked him what he thought. He hesitated and asked me if I liked the car. I said that I wanted to hear his thoughts first. He said, "There is something wrong with your transmission". I called Don White's and took it in for service.
They reported back to me that they can't recreate any of the problems. The next time I took it in for service, I again complained about the transmission, the tail gait and the grinding sound, when I picked the car up, again, couldn't find anything wrong. The car continues to slip and bang from behind. This time, I had a service guy who took the car home. He couldn't recreate any of the problems either but said he wasn't so worried about the transmission because that is covered up to 100,000 miles. What? Are you kidding me? Then he proceeds to tell me he thinks it runs pretty good for a 4 cylinder.
And there you have it. The lying thieving sales people passed off a 4 cylinder as a 6. There is nothing on the spec sheet to point out if it's a 4 or a 6 cylinder.
I took it in last week for the check engine light and they returned it and said they found nothing but would run some updates. When I picked it up after 2 days, I had extremely low tire pressure. They couldn't even be bothered to put air in the tires. 2 days later, the check engine light was back on so I called the service manager directly. I gave him the list of complaints and he said he would try to get some answers and to not loose faith in them. Loose faith? I lost faith when I found out the 6 cylinder car I bought was actually a 4 cylinder. He did call me yesterday to tell me that it appears the thermostat has gone up in my 2015 Jeep Cherokee, it needs new struts, and the tire pressure guage has also gone up. It would really be nice if I got a call from the GM to apologize for what his sales staff did by misrepresenting the car that was sold to me. I bought a new car so that it would be years before I had serious issues with a car. I feel like they wouldn't be blowing smoke up my xxx all the time and trying to get one over on me if I was a man.
I would welcome a meeting with the GM and if by chance they can rectify this situation, I would be happy to update my review.
Very friendly and accommodating - TerryW
Everyone who spoke to us was knowledgeable and easy to work with. We ended up with a decent interest rate and fair price. I had to buy a car because my car was totaled.
Outstanding - Dan Walsh
Just picked up my Ram truck, and I couldn't be happier, especially with Len Len Stoler Dodge, the staff was awesome, Duane Burke, Eric and Kurt were all great to deal with and made the purchase incredibly easy, I would recommend this dealer to anyone looking for a great buying experience.....thanks again !!!!
Shoddy dealership tactics and run-arounds! - Barry2017
I will never do business with Tate DodgeChryslerJeep again. I endured three days of shoddy dealership tactics and run-arounds! I am an individual that values my time and the time of others. Before I go to any dealership in search of a new vehicle, I do my due diligence and review the market value of the vehicle I am interested in, as well as the market value of my current vehicle, should I decide to trade up. I also review my personal finances and determine the maximum amount I am comfortable with spending/financing. I am very straight forward with the sales personnel when I arrive at a dealership, if we can get to where I need to be, we make a deal, if not I leave. I recently purchased a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee from Tate for my wife (Chris H. in New Car Sales was great) and everything went smoothly, so smooth in fact, that I decided to return a few days later to possibly buy a new vehicle for myself. I test drove a new Durango R/T and was so impressed with the vehicle, I was ready to do another deal with Tate. However, this time around, I was extremely disappointed and frustrated with the entire process. First, the Sales Consultant (Tom G.) wasn't straight forward about pricing and applicable discounts, nor were the Sales Managers (not sure of their names). They undervalued my trade-in vehicle by $3K. When I informed them that the price offering was not acceptable to me and I wanted to leave, they requested I allow them to review the numbers and "see what they could do". (Typical dealership tactics.) After an hour waiting, I was told "they worked the numbers and had me at my requested price point", if only I would sit down with their Business Manager (Patrick O.) At this point I still didn't have a final price in front of me to review. After another hour waiting for the business manager, I was told I was getting the "best" finance rate they could get me, however, the final price was still not what I had requested and they still hadn't increased the value of my trade. At that point, I expressed my displeasure and left the dealership. The following day, I received a call from the business manager stating that they would still like to work out a deal with me and that they were able to lower my interest rate to get me "closer" to my bottom line. (If they could lower the rate, why wasn't I given it the night before?) And that they where able to "find" another applicable discount. (Once again, where was this discount the night before?) I again asked about the value of my trade and they were only "willing" to come up in price another $1K. which was still $2K below what I was willing to accept. I once again informed them that they were still not at my requested price point and that I was not willing to depart with my vehicle for less than the fair market value I had requested. It was then requested I bring my vehicle back in for re-evaluation by the Used Car Sales Manager (Ken M.), however, when I agreed to bring the vehicle in that evening, (it was 5pm), I was informed that both the New Car GSM (Glen) and the Used Car SM had left for the evening and a determination could not be made until the next day. On the third day, I was greeted by another voicemail from the Finance manager that informed me that they were pleased to inform me that they had decided to raise their offer on my trade--$200 whole dollars. Needless to say, we did not do the deal.
Poor service, lack of experience - trucker69

I will never go there again
