September 28, 2018   Dan followed up with me each step of the way. He was willing to take the used vehicle to Chrysler so it could be checked out independently (which it did). They were the only dealership offering a limited warranty on a used vehicle and also had a great offering for an extended warranty. He arranged for it to be transported and I was very happy with the company he arranged. Would definitely recommend Encore - and Dan.

Very satisfied with this dealership, especially Dan, our sales person! Highly recomended.

"August 5, 2018" Before you buy a luxury car at the dealership check this awesome place out. They have the best deals around on Mercedes and Porsche. I bought my last car here and it hasn't given me even one problem ever. You can trust them 100% when you buy here. This is the most professional dealership I have ever bought a car from and they saved me so much money. Highly recomended.

"August 2, 2018" I really appreciate the way Encore has taken care of me. When I first needed a new car. They worked with me to understand what I liked and disliked and found the perfect car for me. Then I had an additional need for another vehicle. This had very special requirements and within three weeks I had the vehicle I needed. Excellent Service, Outstanding Support and they are just enjoyable to work with.

"July 11, 2018" Where to start? I have only dealt with the service end of the dealership which is top notch! Scott and Robert have always addressed my concerns quickly, thoroughly and resolutely. I have been bringing all 3 of our family BMW's here for the better part of two years now. Honest service is VERY hard to find for high end cars--look no further; you can definitely find it in Scott and his staff at Encore Motor Cars.
