Why Buy from Thornton Automotive near Dover, PA?

Why Buy from Thornton Automotive near Dover, PA?

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, one of the first decisions you have to make is which dealership you’ll work with. This might sound like a no-brainer, but not all sellers come equal. At Thornton Automotive, we’d like to show you today why we’re head and shoulders above the competition, capable of providing you with unparalleled service during all stages of your automotive search.

Inventory

The first key to success is our inventory and search system. You need a dealership that has extensive stock—otherwise you won’t have access to all the great vehicles out there! We have hundreds of new vehicles, let alone all the gorgeous pre-owned models we have available for you. And you won’t have to spend your precious time walking through rows of cars. Our website is equipped with a superb search function that allows you to input all of your preferences, narrowing down the list until you only see precisely what might work for you. If you’re looking for great savings on a used model, don’t forget to check out our Clearance Zone, which could give you an even more affordable deal! Finally, our Love it or Leave it policy means that we offer a four day return policy if you end up changing your mind about a particular model1.

Online Features

The next way we set ourselves apart is the host of online tools you’ll be able to use for free when you start browsing through our website. These can turn the financing process from a daunting experience into just a short blip in your car-buying journey. Visit our online Finance Department and you’ll see a number of forms you can access. We’d always recommend taking a look at our Current Incentives for any great deals that might apply to you. After that, use our Payment Calculator to assess your purchasing power and the monthly cost of different vehicles. After you’ve gathered information for a while, it might be time to fill out a full Finance Application.

Financing

Finally, whether you decide to purchase or lease, our expert team will be there to help you every step of the way. First and foremost, you’re always welcome to contact us at 717-292-9222 with any questions you might need answering. When you visit us in person, you’ll love the convenience of our numerous locations—there’s almost certainly one near you! Just ask and we’ll sit down with you for a private one-on-one consultation in which we’ll help assess your credit, income, and vehicle preferences. This will help us create the perfect program for you. Above all, we’ll do everything we can to communicate at each step so that you always feel confident and in the loop.

So, why buy from Thornton Automotive near Dover, PA? We provide you with the inventory, online features, and expertise that we’re certain will surpass your expectations! If you’d like to put us to the test, pay us a visit soon.

Folks my husband and I cannot not tell you how many times Thornton has helped us out over the years. You name it, body damage and a new paint job, flat tires, blower motors, over the past few years our family has become very grateful for this service department and guess what the people are honest. I have my car there now, I asked to have new back brakes put on, have my ignition switch checked and also a front right tire issue fixed, we had no idea what it was. I just received a call from Jim and he said, Vicki your back brakes will be ok until November when your inspection is due, we are still checking your ignition switch but you do need a new hose on your right front passenger side...people I don't know about you, but we have been other places for one small issue and they would find 5 other issues to try and get more money out of you. THORNTON is just not like that. We are extremely grateful to have them service our vehicles...honesty is simply priceless. If you want to be treated with courtesy and respect...make this your next service stop you will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Don and Vicki Markle, Dover, PA.

We worked with Cary who was very accomodating and attentive to our concerns. He stayed way past his time to go home which I kept appologizing to him. He did not try to rush us out so he could leave. It was a pleasure to work with him. All the people we met were very friendly and helpful. I would definately let my friends know Thornton is a great place to buy a car.

I recently purchased a 2016 Ram 1500 from Thornton that was in absolute pristine condition with low miles. Kevin was great to deal with and made the process very easy and hassle free. He was very friendly and quickly responded to questions via text message or was always available by phone. When it came to financing, Brian was another pleasure to work with. Very friendly and easy going. Again, made the process quick and easy. I was an out of state buyer and was in and out of there in an hour after doing the test drive a couple weeks prior. Love my new used truck from Thornton Auto!! Great job!! Thank you!!

Highly recommend anyone buying a car to buy with Thorton Automotive Dover! Made everything smooth, easy and stress-free while I was in a bit of a rush to buy and I live out of state. I am so thankful for all of their help, and I drove off of the lot in a beautiful vehicle that I would not have thought was in my budget. No questions asked, I will recommend them to everyone in search of a new ride.

BEST CAR BUYING EXPERIENCE EVER.....These people really go to the extreme to help you get you into a vehicle that is what YOU want. To say my credit was less than perfect is quite the understatement I was on the low side of poor for my credit score and I was laughed out of other dealerships I had inquired about a vehicle at Thornton automotive and I had been texting with Desiree their super customer service ambassador. She told me to stop by that they could do more for me than anybody else and they did. Kelly Raber and Sales manager Chuck really went to bat for me and they were able to not only get me financed but I was able to drive away with an extremely loaded SUV. They actually treated me like I was the most important customer they ever had. Five stars it's not near enough for this company as far as I'm concerned they have a customer for life.

I’m really glad I came to Thornton to get my car. A friend recommended it to me and I really think they were the best option. All of the staff members are incredibly friendly and professional. I worked with Chris Shade and he was fantastic. He did everything he could to work with my situation and make sure I left the dealership with a car that I loved and could afford. I’d like to think any of my future car purchases would be done through them as well. 10/10 would recommend.
