I had looked online and found a Chevrolet Colorado that I liked. I made my appointment the evening before vacation. I was thinking that I could fill out the information needed and get the vehicle when I came back the next week. I showed up to my appointment and met Ron Russell. He is extremely personable and professional in his position. He said that he could have this done in less than an hour and you can take it off the showroom floor today. I didn’t believe it at first, but he proved me wrong. Ron and the sales team at Waynesville Chevrolet are top shelf. So glad I stopped by, because now… I can actually drive a new vehicle to the beach

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.

James Miller here helped me through the process of financing my first new (used) car and he was seriously awesome and a man of his word. His incredibly professional customer service coupled with his friendly and down-to-earth personality made for a painless and exciting experience. He and the manager Paul worked with me all the way through and got me a really fantastic deal. I highly recommend James, Paul, and Autostar Waynesville to anyone and everyone.

I had looked online and found a Chevrolet Colorado that I liked. I made my appointment the evening before vacation. I was thinking that I could fill out the information needed and get the vehicle when I came back the next week. I showed up to my appointment and met Ron Russell. He is extremely personable and professional in his position. He said that he could have this done in less than an hour and you can take it off the showroom floor today. I didn’t believe it at first, but he proved me wrong. Ron and the sales team at Waynesville Chevrolet are top shelf. So glad I stopped by, because now… I can actually drive a new vehicle to the beach

We came from SC on a weekend trip and while here, decided to check out the dealerships around because we were in the market for a vehicle already! From the first phone call I made to the dealership and spoke with Torie to find out about their inventory, to our arrival and beginning to work with Bobby was smooth sailing! For me shopping for a vehicle/purchasing one has always been more stressful than exciting, but Bobby was wonderful; as was the rest of the staff! I don’t believe we could have asked for a better salesman than Bobby! He was never pushy (I hate that!), made sure we looked at every vehicle we wanted, was quick but efficient and thorough from start to finish! Oh, and anyone who LOVES music; COUNTRY music especially….I’m bound to like you! Thank you so much Bobby and staff for a seamless purchase on our new Tahoe! We absolutely love it! Highly, Highly recommend you ask for and work with Bobby!!!!!

Honestly when I went to the dealership I thought it would be like others. But I was wrong the service was fantastic and they went above and beyond to really help you out. I can’t thank them enough to help me get the suv I wanted. Even gave me top dollar for my trade in. Will Definitely be returning to do Future business with them. If you want a dealership that actually wants to help You get what you desire. Come See these guys. You will be amazed Like I was !! Thank you again. Definitely love the new ride !

I had the best experience that anyone could ever ask for. They were not pushy and amazing to work with. Ron was so nice. I told him what I wanted and we made it happened. I was amazed at how easy he made the experience for me. I also want to thank Austin (the tech) he kept in touch with me and also checked on me when I was sick. What dealership does that? I got my 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe and I love it. Thank you all so much for everything that you all did for me and all the help. I really appreciate it very much.

Manny and the rest of the sales team went FAR beyond what I expected to get us the car that we wanted! I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend this dealership. When our desired make and model and color was not available, Manny searched high and low and found us the exact Trailhawk that we wanted, and had it brought from out of state to the dealership. He then worked relentlessly to get our financing smoothed out with USAA.

Went in for service and after service had a major oil leak that puddled my garage. Of course when I took Vehicle back two days later I was told needed more repair replacing the gasket. There was no leak prior to service and why was the old gasket not removed at first service. Skeptical of the service here so beware.
