My Review Of Ourisman Chevrolet of Bowie:
I have been following the development of the Volt for the past four years and have become a big fan. When GM announced the launch markets, I searched the DC area dealers and emailed each one, enquiring specifically about the Volt. Only Meredith Dotson of Ourisman replied promptly, specifically and professionally about the Volt buying process. Even though I received reponses from all the dealers I contacted, most were generic Chevrolet form letters.
Meredith explained the process clearly and set up an appointment for me to meet with Lew Gilinski, Sales Manager. Lew sat down with me on a Friday Evening, August 6th and we worked through the Chevrolet Work Bench to spec and order the car. A down payment later, I walked out the door with my Volt order in hand.
I visited Ourisman a week before the delivery of My volt on Meredith's invitation to take a test drive in a Volt and meet with a Volt Specialist. When I walked in, I was treated like family and both my wife and I were able to take test drives and got all of our questions answered.
A week later, Meredith emailed me to say my Volt has arrived! My whole famiy went with me to pick it up. Sadly, we had to say good-bye to our family van that we used as a trade-in. However, we were delighted to see our new Volt all prepped and gleaming in the Service Bay. It had been fully charged and given a full tank of gas!
Before driving it away, we needed to an orientation session with Chris Johnson, who filled us in on starting, driving, charging and setting up Onstar. Quite patient and professional.
I had originally intended to lease the Volt, but on Saturday, Ourisman's Lease Manager was not available, so Lew set me up with a loan. The terms are pretty nice, so coupled with the Tax Rebate, I think I'll keep the loan and keep the car.
Thanks Ourisman, you guys are quite a Team!
