About a month ago I decided that I would begin my first new car search. I was set on a new chevy Silverado 1500 crew cab 4x4. I looked online for about a week getting a feel for the features that I was looking for and what that would cost me.
After that I began by reaching out to every chevy dealership within 30 miles of my home St. Louis, which took a week of two. I told every dealership the same thing, "I am going to buy a Silverado within 2 weeks, here is was I am willing to pay, can you beat this?" Three dealerships and associates stuck out and I went to all three. From the get go, I liked Weber Chevrolet the best! The sale associate, Frank Shinault, and the sales manger, Keith Breda, were down to earth, knowledgeable, and were genuinely concerned with me getting what I want at the price I wanted and did everything to make the deal work.
Being young and a first time new vehicle buyer, a family member convinced me to look at don brown because she had met him before and liked him. We went there and ultimately would have bought the truck there (sitting at the table about to sign purchase contract) if it weren't for the fact that don and one of his employees insulted us and spoke down to the female family member like she was incapable of making such a grown up decision. After a warning from me to stop, they did not so we left!
We immediately went back to Weber and bought the truck. We didn't know how good the whole package was at Weber until we experience such an unfortunate situation elsewhere. I will forever buy my vehicles from Frank Shinault, Keith Breda, and Weber Chevrolet.
I highly recommend a trip out to Weber Chevrolet in Columbia Illinois!
