I’m so grateful for honest people!!!! McCloskey is the best car dealership to go to!!!! Better than springs automotive!!!! My husband and I came in and did not once feel pressured into buying a car!!!!! CHRIS is the one to go to!!! He is… More will not let you down and is extremely patient!! He will work with you on expanding your options to beat fit your financial needs! Please do not hesitate to go there!
My post comes a little late (2 months late) but I have to say I’ve never had such a great experience at a car dealership. Chris is the absolute best! He welcomed us when we first got there and was extremely patient with us as we talked… More about what we were looking for. We looked at a few different vehicles and then went back to the drawing board. After looking at the list one more time, he found my Jeep! ☺️ We went to look at it and turns out it had JUST got done being detailed and technically wasn’t even on the lot yet. It was love at first sight and we drove home in it later that night. 10/10 recommend McCloskeys and Chris. Thank you!!
This is the place for you!!!! if you wanna learn how not to get screwed over by other dealerships like the dealership off of Platte and academy off the bridge rhymes with "steak side auto". Those clowns will rob you blind if your… More not well equipped with knowledge. So that's probably the majority of everyone that purchased from there. The gentleman that helped myself and my fiance, Chris Schloemer really helped understand the whole process in buying a vehicle. He also helped us get the best deal we possibly can.
Was very knowledgeable and wanted to help us the best he can.
I'd recommend this dealership to anyone
Thank you very much for the beautiful vehicle!!!
Brandon S was amazing to work with! He was extremely patient and understanding of our situation and even offered me more than any other local dealership. He was straight forward and kind, feel like we made a friend out of this deal as well!… More I highly recommend working with Brandon, thank you for such a smooth process!
