I just purchased a 2020 Chevrolet Bolt from Bachman Chevrolet, and worked with Doug Bowman. The entire deal was negotiated remotely, since I live in Cincinnati. Doug was prompt with his replies and information, and 100% honest throughout the entire process. I can't say that has been my experience when purchasing a new car at other dealerships.
I have been researching Chevrolet Bolts for the past three years, and was waiting for the opportunity for a great deal on a new Bolt. With the announcement of the new 2022 Bolt release, Chevrolet is really dealing on the current inventory of 2020 and 2021 models. I had done my homework and knew the exact model and options I wanted. I searched CARS.COM (250 mile radius from Cincinnati) for the lowest advertised price and contacted the three lowest priced dealers via email, with a specific list of questions. From two of the dealers I only received generic responses, and no response to my questions.
Doug Bowman at Bachman Chevrolet responded with answers to each of my questions. After a few emails back and forth, I called Doug and we clarified all the details of the purchase. Since I live 110 miles from the dealer I wanted assurance that when I arrived at the showroom to pick up my new car, there would be no surprises. Doug shared the financial information with me via email, and when I showed up to finalize the purchase, every item was exactly as we had discussed. The 2020 Bolt was fully charged, and ready for my 110 mile return trip to Cincinnati.
I am very pleased with my experience at Bachman Chevrolet, and will utilize Doug Bowman's services in my future purchases. I saved at least $3,000 over the lowest deal I could have negotiated in Cincinnati.
