Words cant describe the experience provided by Sweeney. Especially, the service advisor at the counter. Russ was his name, and he bent over backwards to make our service both easy and necessary.

Not from the immediate area, we were referred by a friend so we checked Sweeneys out. Matt on the GMC side was absolutely great and went above and beyond. Normally dread car dealerships but this was the best experience. Will be sure to return down the road for our next purchase.

Was in and out in no time.

Shout out to Bill Baird who helped me get into my new Terrain! Best part- it was done in two days. I love all the room in it and how tough it looks! I had a slate grey picked out but Ironically a relative stole it from me. (Just coincidence) Bill came through and got me into my favorite color...
