Vancouver dealer recommendations?

Sat Sep 23, 2017 5:57 am

Did anyone here have a decent experience buying their Bolt here in Vancouver BC? I'm looking for a decent sales person who won't go completely dark during the long dark winter of the wait for my order to be filled...

I used Eagle Ridge GM on Barnet Hwy. The salesmans name escapes me right now but I have his card in the car. My wife is away for the weekend in the car. I will check on Sunday evening for his name. He was not super knowledgable re the car itself (it was the first one the dealership had received) but was good to his word in holding the vehicle for us as first refusal for well over a week, as I was unexpectedly away when it arrived. People were beating down the door to take the car and he held firm for me. Could have easily taken the easy route and sold the car in my absence.
I will post his name as soon as I have it.

So.... nobody else in Metro Vancouver has had a decent salesperson experience? Surely it can't be that bad here...?

I doubt there's a ton of Vancouverite's that frequent this forum, and I can't speak to dealers as I haven't bought one yet or live in Vancouver exactly but they guy I dealt with in Langley was friendly and helpful back in the early summer when I wanted to test dive, if you'd consider out of city sales. A week or so ago a guy posted here that there was a premier for sale in Courtney if it's still available.

Thanks. I'm not sure I want to go all the way out to Langley or Courtney. I guess I should post in one of the other Bolt forums. I like this one because it's so fast to respond, but I participate in all of them.

I bought from Dueck on Marine in South Van. My sales guy was Jonathan Overton. Really nice guy. Not pushy or anything, easy going. Pulled a few strings & got mine ahead of schedule. Would recommend him to anyone. Dealership was good everywhere else too. Finance department was simple & straight forward too. Along with their product specialist who showed me the ropes with the car.

That's exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for - thanks for your help Michael!

I went to see Jonathan today and plopped my $1000 down to get in line. He came up with an unspoken-for factory order that matched what I was looking for - it's targeted for production at the end of this month, so with a bit of luck I may be driving a Bolt by the end of the year.

Thanks again, Michael!

Rather then start a new thread I thought I'd build on this one, has anyone in the Vancouver and surrounding areas got any purchase or lease information they're willing to share? I'm looking at getting into on in January, there seems to be some stock around.
