    Reviews:

    My wife and I are very pleased with our buying experience at Lessord. Mike S did a great job working with us. Truly, we both were intent to negotiate and make a deal which both parties would be satisfied. We are very happy with the purchase 2015 Town/Country and praise the Lessord team for being professional, knowledgeable, accommodating, and understanding to our particular situation. We will definitely seek out Mike Sleight at Lessord Chrysler Jeep when considering another vehicle. 5 Stars for Mike and Lessords. ~Dave Via Dealer Rater~

    My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Lessord Chrysler buying our new 2015 Jeep Wrangler. Michael S was our salesperson. He was very informative, answered our questions and we never felt pressured. I would recommend this dealership to everyone. My husband got the deal he wanted and I got my first new car. Our thanks to Michael and Don Lessord for making our purchase such a pleasure….we love our new Wrangler. ~Alice via Dealer Rater~
