I was in the market to purchase a Chevy Bolt LT 2017, and I wasn't having much luck at the Vancouver/Portland area dealerships salesperson. Other dealerships were not so informed with their products and actually provided misleading information which their numbers were based off of (as noted from my other car dealership review). However, thankfully, I ran into Lukas Simpson a sales representative at Jim Doran Chevrolet Subaru who made it all right.
Lukas was upfront and very informed with everything such as what was currently available, the options the cars had, and any special deals on the car to reach an agreement number. I didn't feel like I was misled at any point during our conversations, so I made the trip from Vancouver, WA to McMinnville with my family hoping to test drive the Bolt and purchase it. Even before arriving at the dealership, Lukas provided helpful reminders (not always obvious or common sense) what to bring if we are hoping to buy i.e trade-in car, keys, documents, etc.
From the second I arrived with my family, he greeted us with a warmly welcome and we cut right into the chase of test driving the Bolt and going from there. I have test driven some cars before, and I appreciate Jim Doran allowing us to actually test drive it more than a few blocks. I was able to go on small highways and go a few miles out to really get a sense of how the Bolt runs in the overall sense.
Getting back to the dealership after the test drive, my family went right into numbers and it was a pleasant experience. There wasn't so much going back and forth type of games, so as a consumer I definitely appreciated that. Lukas was upfront with all the fees included with the price, their discounts and within the next hour I bought the Bolt! I can't speak the prices for all their cars, but I can definitely say I checked within a 100 mile radius and Jim Doran Chevrolet had the best price around and by far too.
In a nutshell, very professional salesperson that is informed and upfront, a pleasant and thorough test drive, car kept clean and charged, and definitely a satisfying negotiation experience. Put all that together and I'm a happy camper. My family and I didn't feel like we wasted our time driving the hour to get to the dealership. I DO recommend purchasing a vehicle at Jim Doran Chevrolet Suburu! If you are in the market for one, definitely give them a visit and see what they can do for you.
