Great sales experience

by Frances from Birmingham | January 28, 2020

I just bought a GLC-300 and couldn't be happier. Russell French understood just what I wanted and needed and made it happen effortlessly and pleasantly. He could not have been more accommodating. AND I'm confident I got a great deal too! This dealership and Russell were highly recommended to me by the head of the trust department at Iberia Bank, who has had a lot of personal experience with both Russell and the dealership, and has recommended both to quite a few people over the years. My high expectations were more than met.

Small downsize from the ML350, but same wonderful!

Sporty but comfy ride. Love the panoramic sunroof! Decent cargo space. Backseat is a good size too. Smooth, easy steering. I don’t care for the radio quality.
