My name is Samantha Eberhardt. Being a full-time college student, part-time employee at a hotel, and limited on funds is definitely not easy. Car shopping only added on heaps of more stress, that is, until I found myself at Dave Arbogast. My grandparents had recently just purchased a blue GMC Sierra truck with the help of Kevin and they wouldn't stop speaking so highly of him, so of course, I put my 'life' in his hands as well.

I explained to him exactly what I wanted and the price range I was looking at. I had been to so many other dealerships and not only did I feel like they swarmed me as soon as I got out of the car, but their only concern was how much money they were going to get out of me -- even if the car was nothing that I wanted. Kevin on the other hand, I came to him. He didn't force me into a car I didn't want, he didn't make me feel like I was a customer at all, he made me feel like I was his friend.
Every question I had, he had an honest and up-front answer. I made many, many trips to Dave Arbogast, alone and with family, and every time he made every single one of us feel comfortable and at home. It had only been 1-2 short months of waiting for the perfect car when I received a phone call from Kevin, "I found your car." Sure enough, he did. The perfect 2003 Chevy Malibu with a spoiler and low mileage. It was love at first test drive.

Within a week, I had my car and I had a new friend. He has called multiple times to do follow ups on me and my car, every time I go to get my car washed (for free, because that is such a wonderful prop for purchasing my car from Dave Arbogast) he greets me with a smile, he remembers my name, and he asks me about my family, my life, etc. Dave Arbogast should be proud of having Kevin Richardson as an employee. Because of him, not only will I return to Arbogast in a few years to purchase a newer car, but I recommend them to every one I speak to. We're keeping Dave Arbogast in the family, and that's all because of Kevin.

Purchase a Ticket, Save a Life. Miami County Relay for Life

 It never hurts to give back, even if it means walking in a circle for 24 hours straight.
On May 7, cancer survivors and supporters alike will convene on the Miami County Fairgrounds in Troy for this year's Relay for Life. 

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a life-changing event which provides communities across not only America but the globe as well a chance to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones and fight back against the disease.

This year, Dave Arbogast, of Troy, in cooperation with The Caroline and Troy Fish and Game, will be heading up a Ride for Life Harley Raffle.  Tickets are $20 each. The lucky winner of the Ride for Life Raffle will receive a 2007 Harley Davidson XL883L Sportster Motorcycle with 6,381 miles.

For the event, teams of people camp out at a local high school, par, or in Miami County's case - a fairground - and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is also asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.

Relay for Life began in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Wash., ran and walked around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Since that time, the relay has grown from a single man's passion to fight cancer into the world's largest movement to end the disease.

Every year, more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, along with additional communities in 19 other countries, gather to take part in this global phenomenon and raise funds and awareness in an effort to save lives from cancer.

Bad Credit Car Loans in Dayton Ohio

I recently read a story that said ten million Americans have bad credit. Doesn't that make you feel better?

You and I both know that the fact that we are not alone with bad debt means nothing. The old saying that misery loves company is a lie. What those in misery want is a solution. And now there is one.

Employee(s) Dealt With: Steve Haines

My Review of Dave Arbogast Buick GMC:

Steve Haines went above and beyond the call of duty to make our purchasing experience at Dave Arbogast a positive one. He knows what he's doing, and he works hard to develop a rapport with his customers. Vicki  Tipps, who handled the paperwork, also went out of her way to make us feel appreciated and valued. We will definitely recommend Arbogast, specifically Steve Haines.  When we are in need of another car, we will contact Steve first.

GM Revamping Midsize GMC Canyon

A new GMC Canyon is rumored to be on the drawing board. Originally, GM planned to discontinue the pickup in the U.S. but has since revised its strategy. The new GMC Canyon will most likely go on sale here sometime in late 2013 or early 2014.

The midsize pickup segment does not share in the rapid evolution and competitiveness enjoyed by its full-size brethren the GMC Sierra. In fact, the last time a major?


The Power of the Hat

It is the single, most intimidating thing that I own.

It's a hat.

My Review of Dave Arbogast Conversion Vans:

We found our van online and with the help of the knowledgeable staff we were able to purchase this vehicle easily along with a great financing rate. So far we have absolutely no complaints, only compliments. The staff was friendly and Larry Oaks, the person we dealt with the most, was very friendly and helpful. Nice smooth transaction everything straight forward and up front. No hidden fees or agendas. Good work guys. Keep it going. We will recommend you to others.
