Auto Star Jeep of Waynesville is your #1 place to purchase your Jeep. The entire Team has been superb from Say 1! I ordered my 2022 Jeep Sahara Wrangler Unlimited in January! I was notified of every step of its production from receiving a VIN to the minute it was placed in transit! This purchase was an amazing experience! The delivery was informative as I’m a first time Jeep owner! My husband and I will always call Auto Star Jeep of Waynesville our “go to “ store when shopping for our vehicles! Austin, Dale and Jenny are simply the Best Ever Team!

This is a great place to buy a vehicle. My husband and I both now have vehicles from there. Greggory was so helpful and friendly and we will definitely tell others that is interested in buying a vehicle to come and see him ! Some others that I have to comment on is Jenni in finance that was so very nice and has the sweetest personality and done such a great job helping us. Ian went out of his way to try to get me in the best payment range that I could afford and was so very helpful. Brooke talked to us before we bought the car and was so informative and helpful and also was so friendly. Miranda that works in service helped me out with who to talk to about the vehicle and such a sweet person. Can’t say enough about how these people treated us with courtesy and respect. Have known Rick Chandler and his family for a long time and have to say we think he has a great dealership. Love our Murano! Thanks !

My experience with this dealership was excellent....

My experience with this dealership was excellent. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The first salesperson I met was "Manny" Pino. I knew what I was interested in and he was honest, and informative in answering any of my questions on the possibilities. He admitted that he was more knowledgeable about the Chrysler line, but was more than willing to get answers for me to be able to get my "Dream Car". Manny was in touch with Ray on several (GM) issues , and Ray was willing to help in several ways to cut the deal. They both "bent over backwards" to help me be able to afford to purchase my Envision, and agree on a trade-in value for my vehicle. Jenni was extremely thoughtful and thorough in closing the sale, Ray was a great instructor on all the new technology GM has implemented, and Dale and Greg helped us iron out some software issues and parts replacement. I would like to thank all of them for a wonderful experience, and look forward to seeing any of them in the future.

Jacob was the deciding factor in the purchase of my car.

Jacob was the deciding factor in the purchase of my car. I recommend him without hesitation. His diligence in finding what I wanted made the difference. He is personable and dedicated to customer satisfaction. I appreciated the manner in which he approached me, and would request his help personally. Thank you Jacob Adams.

They must have purged all the reviews from 2022 however I will still attempt to leave one. We sent our vehicle a 2018 Chevrolet traverse to them months ago and had them check for noise in their rear end and a noise when the air conditioning comes on. When we went to pick the car up to see what was wrong they said nothing was wrong. Now it has been four or five months later we took a back for the same problems and last week we scheduled with them for today at 1:00 o'clock. After taking time away from our schedules to meet their schedule we showed up on time and was told that the guy that usually checks for noises was out sick and that they were covered up if we could come back on Thursday. I'm not sure if this dealership is going out of business but we've had nothing but poor sales and service from this particular location. The promised oil changes you have to fight for, rotation of tires and then forgetting the locking lugs, and unable to determine cause for concern noises. They could have contacted us prior to us leaving for our 1:00 o'clock appointment and let us know that the only guy that could check on a noise was out sick. I didn't trust anything after the sales experience I had with them and now I trust nothing they say in the service department.
