Tate's Eastside Ford-Mercury Compliment - Our new Dodge Dakota

Review by Starlord on 2008-04-04
COOLIDGE, ARIZONA -- Tate's Eastside Ford-Mercury Dodge DakotaWe got an ad in the mail about a sales event at Tate's, and decided to take a look, as our Ford minivan is beginning to fall apart. I had seen Tate's since they bought the old Hudgeon's, and hoped it was better.

A personable, intelligent young lady was our sales representative, and allowed us to test drive two vehicles. The second was the one we bought, a 2006 Dodge Dakota SLR extended cab with a 3.7 L V-6 engine. The truck is a dream, and the people at Tate's treated us like visiting royalty.

If you live in central Arizona, and are looking to buy a good new or used vehicle, you certainly could do worse than to go to Tate's in Coolidge to see what they can do for you. They have in-house financing, and will do the best for you they can. When we left the lot with the truck, our payments were to be $428 per month. the next day, the sales person showed up at our home with a new contract. They had run the truck through another lending institution and gotten the payments reduced to $388 per month.

Kudos to Tate's and we recommend that anyone needing a new vehicle check Tate's out. If you send me a private message, I will give you my name so you can tell them we referred you.

Sounds like a legit shop. Never heard of a dealer coming back and having you re-sign for a LOWER price per month... that is great!

Thank you, ponie, Hope you are well. Sparticus, I like to fell over from shock, they are a dream to work with. They don't push, but help you find the car or truck YOU want and need.

Starlord, I just about had a heart attack reading that last line. I have never heard of dealership that would actually draw up and have you sign a new contract for a lower price! What a great group of people. Good luck with your new truck! Throw a handful of coins on the floor in the back seat. It's for good luck.

I feel like such an idiot. In the excitement, I got some things wrong. It is Tate's East Valley Ford/Mercury, and hte truck is a Dakota SLT, not SLR. Auto enthusiasts, please don't hang me up by my thumbs. :D
