We contacted a ton of salesmen looking for the perfect ram 2500. We just about given up when Dave Lareau contacted us with an amazing Ram 2500. We didn’t buy from them, but Dave’s understanding and willing to help far exceeded my expectations. I know if I ever buy another vehicle dave will be one of the first ones I contact.

Today a gentleman named Dave helped my fiancé find the perfect “mom-mobile” that our growing family needs. He was able to answer all of our questions on the spot. He was not pushy at all, very laid back. I would recommend him to my family and friends. I will gladly do business there again.

I had an emergency situation with my previous car and needed a reasonable vehicle in a single days time. At Douglas I was able to receive the best customer service in a professional comfortable environment that seems to be missing in a lot car dealerships nowadays. Not only was the car I bought several thousand dollars lower than the blue book value but the process of financing and closing the deal was all done in under an hour! Great experience! Highly recommended! Ask for Dave!

Easy process! Great people! Great deals! I have dealt with Dave Lareau many times. I have recommended him to friends and family who have bought from him as well. Everyone has had wonderful experiences. I would encourage anyone in the market for a new or used vehicle. They make the customer a priority!

Dave Lareau made buying our 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Limited very quick and easy. We were able to take care of most of the details over the phone so that when we got there the vehicle was ready to go and Jim in finance had all the paperwork ready for us to sign. He was also very helpful with getting our phones connected and teaching us how some of the fancy features worked. One of the fastest purchases we have ever made. Thank you!

My husband and I traded in our Silverado for a newer model. We really enjoyed working with Dave Lareau, he was great. He made the process stress free, he was super busy the day we were in but he never made us feel rushed. We had our 6 year old with us and he even brought out coloring pages for her. Everyone was great, other salesmen, finance staff and the guys in the back who cleaned the truck before we left... everyone! We'll be back!

I had a great experience buying from Dave Lareau from Douglas Dodge. There was no pressure at all and enjoyed the process from beginning to end.

I just went to this dealership because my son wanted to apply for a job and I found a Nissan Rogue I liked that was low mileage and a great price.

Nice clean facility. We worked with Dave Lareau who was friendly and gracious. We live about 110 miles south of the dealership. We wanted to pay cash for the transaction and the dealership allowed us to write a personal check. This was very convenient since 1. We did not want to carry that much cash on us and 2. We didn't have to drive home to get a Cashier's check. We knew our check would be good but it was nice to feel valued and respected at the dealership.

Dave L was our sales guy, and he was great. He was knowledgeable, wasn’t pushy at all, and seemed more interested in getting my wife and I in the right vehicle for us than just to close a sale. Everyone at the dealership was nice and professional. Definitely worth the trip from Bloomington. Prices were good and the people were honest. I’d absolutely recommend Douglas Dodge to anyone searching for a vehicle.

Searched nationally for the perfect Fiat Spider 124 at a value price. Came across Douglas Dodge in Clinton, Illinois while sitting in the comfort of my Minnesota home (with snow still on the ground in April but thinking convertible anyway!). The car I was looking for is not easy to find. There were about 20 possibilities at dealerships throughout the country.

From the minute we walked into the dealership our experience was awesome. It was very cold the day we bought the car, so our salesman, Kevin , brought each car right up to the front door so we didn't have to get so cold. He offered us water or soft drinks several times. He was kind, courteous, soft spoken and very low pressure. We picked the car, which we absolutely love, and his price was low enough that we didn't even question it. The price was quite a bit lower than most of the similar cars we looked at. ...
