This month I’m HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! I am wearin’ camo and growin’ a beard!
It’s my BUCK DYNASTY SALES EVENT!!! ...
My husband and I went to Academy cars looking for an afforable vehicle for our son. From the time we walked inside to the time he drove off in his new car,the staff was amazing. I will definately send my friends and relatives there. The experience was wonderful and it was the easiest and smoothest car buying transaction I have ever been thru. Thank you so much. Tom,Brandi & Andrew McNish
I had an excellent sales experience at Academy Cars! It was worth the drive to get there. Very friendly staff from the phone calls that I recieved while searching online to the in person interactions that I had with all of the staff. Great section of vehicles, affordably priced. The owner, Lonnie Blackburn even stopped by to visit us while we were there, it made us feel very welcomed. Thank you Academy Cars, I love my new truck!
we had a great expierence with Academy cars the first time we went in and spoke with them we could not find a car that we felt would fit in our budget so Bill goodson said not to worry he would find us what we were looking for, and sure enough it took him about two months which is very good considering the super low monthly payment we were looking for but he did it he found us a great car with low mileage it meet and exceded our expetations GREAT JOB ACADEMY CARS keep up the good work and we will highly recomend you and we will be back
I have now purchased two cars from academy and both times got help that was astonishing! I have credit that is FAR from good, but they still got me into a car that day with a very small down payment and monthly payments I could afford. I had my first car for 4 years and came back to academy to trade it in. They gave me much more for my trade that any one else would have and got me into very nice SUV. Also, currently as well as in the past I take my car to academy's service department. Needless to say, the boys in the service department as well as the salesmen/women are very friendly and go out of their way to make you comfortable. I would not go to another dealership or service station for anything! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK EVERYONE!
Everytime I hear one of his crazy commericials, I want to scream. He says he is a dealer for the people. This is a used car dealer and I believe his specialty is getting everyone fiancied. What bothers me is that he can get you fiancied and then charge you a hefty documentation (paperwork fee) which is $300. This price is on top of the selling price for the vehicle.
Most dealers in Lawrence charge from 0-to around $200. Some dealers that charge from $100 to $200 are dealers that are full service and sell new cars. These dealers also have a very large overhead and numerous employees.
