After searching many dealership web pages in the Pacific Northwest, I discovered that Larson Dodge in Puyallup had the largest selection of Durango's. They had the car with the features that I wanted.....and least I thought so. It also happen to be where an old friend worked.....Wes Konsmo. My wife and I purchased a Grand Caravan from Wes back in 1995 which ultimately stayed in our family for 18 years. Wes is a real professional! He listens to our questions and was smart enough to not insert himself into disagreements between my wife and I over different features on the vehicles. He let us drive "demos" so we could finally arrive at a decision........which, by the way, took over a week!
During this time, I was conversing with John Reginato on the internet. He was patient in answering my many questions as I waivered back and forth. I had used the USAA Buying Service which had given me a "Target Price". When we decided on the vehicle and got into the "little room" with John, I asked if he could meet the USAA price. He responded, "I'm going to give you a killer price!" And he did by beating the Target Price by nearly one thousand dollars! What a smokin' deal!! Was I ever surprised!! Great people and a great deal...what more can you ask for?
When we picked the car up, John spent well over an hour patiently going over the multitude of technical features including setting up of the Blue Tooth feature. We had a very enjoyable experience!
