Jim and Angie Mullen, of Mays Landing, New Jersey, flew in to pick up their 2017 Chevrolet Express 12-passenger van from Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque! The couple worked with nine dealers in their area, but none had a van with the features they were looking for. “This van had all the options I wanted, which was basically all the options,” Jim said. “It had the locking differential, a cold weather package, and a six-way power seat, which comes in handy since Angie is a much shorter person than I am.” They appreciated Runde Auto Group’s transparent and understandable sales process, along with salesperson Tim Loso’s helpfulness along the way. “He was very easy to work with and even got us an interest rate that was better than our bank got us,” [...]
St. Stephen’s Food Bank will have an easier time distributing food after getting a new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 refrigerated cube truck from salesperson Jacob Puls at Runde Chevrolet today! The vehicle is replacing their 2002 box truck that had a failing refrigeration unit. “The parts for it aren’t made anymore, so every time something happened, they had to find used parts,” said Kathy Hutton, executive director of St. Stephen’s Food Bank. “Last time, it took 12 weeks.” Twelve weeks is too long to wait when the truck has important work to do. The truck helps the nonprofit pick up food donations that they distribute to over 100 partner agencies. St. Stephen’s Food Bank distributed 1.8 million pounds of food in 2017 — up 20 [...]
Deb and Steve Binger, of Black Earth, WI, were excited for the drive home today in a brand new 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 Dbl Cab! They bought the vehicle from salesperson Tim Loso at Runde Chevrolet. “We are excited,” Deb said. “Steve kept waiting to pick it up until the snow was gone. He said ‘I’m not driving my new truck in the salt!'” They are replacing their 1997 Chevy Silverado that has 234,000 miles on it — but they don’t plan on getting rid of their trusted old Chevy truck any time soon. The retired couple will use the vehicle as a daily driver and also for trips to their cabin up north. Steve plans to put a topper on the truck so he can fill up the bed. While they shopped around, they returned to Runde Auto Group because of the customer service they [...]

His latest truck is a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 4WD LTZ Dbl Cab. “It’s a great vehicle,” he said. “It’s gets good mileage, it’s dependable, and I love the styling.” Leonard does a lot of long distance driving to and from various farms he owns in other cities. “I’d rather drive this than a car — it is as comfortable or more than many cars today,” he said. Leonard drives two hours to buy his trucks at Runde Auto Group. His salesperson is Dave Frazier. “He’s treated me very fairly,” Leonard said. “He’s honest and has treated me well.” In his free time, Leonard is the president and treasurer of the Blackhawk Toms Turkey Federation in [...]
New Chevrolet Equinox owner Brian H.
Brian Hansen, better known as “Chopper,” was all smiles today when he left Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque! He scored a great deal on a 2017 Chevy Equinox Premier AWD from salesperson Corissa Frederick. Plus, he was Corissa’s first sale! “She was a great gal to work with,” Brian said. “Corissa’s the bomb.” Brian, who lives in East Dubuque, called a few days ago to inquire about how spacious the Equinox was. “I’ve always driven Chevys,” he said. “I like dealing with Runde’s and I heard good things about the Equinox. I liked that it had a six-cylinder and I love the interior.” When he isn’t in his daily driver, Brian loves riding his motorcycle, a 2017 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Special. He works at the Rock Island Arsenal Fire Department as [...]
Runde Chevrolet customers Mike and Anita P
Mike and Anita P., of Lena, IL, said they weren’t sure if they were crazy when they left Runde Chevrolet on Tuesday. “We’ve never bought two vehicles on the same day,” Mike said. Anita drove off the lot in a red 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab and Mike drove away in a black 2018 Chevrolet Cruze. Their salesperson was Dave Frazier. “He’s the reason we’re here,” Anita said. Mike agreed, “He’s just a good guy. We don’t really call anybody else but Dave.” Mike, Anita, and their family members have bought many vehicles from Runde’s. For Mike and Anita, it’s been mostly trucks. “It’s been 18 years since we had a car,” Anita said. “We’ve had trucks for a while.” They still have a 1999 Tahoe that they [...]
Rodney Coohey got his 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 SRW 4WD Dbl Cab LT from Runde Chevrolet in 2014. Fast forward 210,000 miles (and counting!), and it is still running as good as new. He has done almost exclusively routine maintenance, including oil changes, tire rotations, new tires, and one air filter on the vehicle. This is his fifth Chevy 3500 since 2007. “I just don’t have issues with them. I’m probably jinxing myself doing this,” he said, laughing. Coohey is the owner of two businesses, Midwest Patch, which supplies bagged cold patch to cities and counties, and Hi-Viz Safety, which sells safety-related items like signs, barricades, clothing, and more. He hits the road most days at 3 or 4 in the morning and puts thousands of miles on his vehicle. “I can’t afford [...]

Liza Pancho once thought she was getting pulled over by a police officer to be given a ticket. Instead, the officer asked if he could take photos of her car. It’s a vehicle that attracts plenty of attention — a pink 2014 Chevrolet Camaro 2LS Coupe. “He wanted to get a picture because his daughter likes pink cars,” Liza said. Liza purchased the Camaro from Runde Chevrolet in white, and then had it painted with a temporary coating called Plasti Dip. “That’s my favorite color, pink,” she said. When she was considering buying the vehicle, she asked for opinions from her three children and got an enthusiastic response.
A routine oil change became a learning experience for three children at Runde Chevrolet recently. Tony Thier, of Dubuque, had Sophie, Stella, and Henry with him when he stopped by for routine maintenance on their 2011 Chevy Suburban. Tony asked their service writer if they could watch the oil change while they waited. Technician Al Gassman, who has worked at Runde’s for eight years, was glad to take them through the process. “Al Gassman did an awesome job and made it a very educational experience for the kids and myself,” Tony said. “Note that we were coming in on a Saturday and I am sure Al was ready to get out of there.” Al was in his element has he has small children of his own. The experience was a memorable one for [...]

Benjamin Fornek, of Moline, IL, got his first new car from his college roommate! He stopped by Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque today to pick up his 2015 Chevy Cruze ECO from salesperson Jacob Puls, who went to Augustana College with him. This was Benjamin’s first new car. “My really, really old truck started to fall apart,” he said. “Jacob started talking to me about lease options.” He said the process was very simple. “I’m out of here and it’s been like 40 minutes,” he said. “The paperwork only took 20 minutes. It was easy.” While Benjamin was here, he also participated in Chevrolet’s #IDriveFor campaign. He drives for his grandmother, a breast cancer survivor. Since his photo with the frame 
Alex Scharnhorst is in the Middle East, but that didn’t stop him from getting a vehicle from Runde Auto Group! His parents, Dave and Lisa Scharnhorst, stopped into Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque today to pick up their son’s new 2015 Chevy Sonic. “He got it, we are just kind of the proxies,” Lisa said, explaining that their 20-year-old son is overseas with the military so they are picking up his vehicle for when he comes home in December. Lisa brought along “Flat Alex,” a stick with a photo of her son on each side.

Nathan Miller, his younger brother Matt Miller, and their father Dan Miller are all driving new Cruzes from Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque, IL! They each leased their new vehicles from salesperson John Riley in the last 10 days. “It all started when my younger brother’s timing chain broke on his Chevy Cavalier in the driveway,” Nathan said. Matt shopped around and ended up leasing a 2015 Chevy Cruze 1LT from John Riley. Then it was a domino effect: Dan leased a 2015 Chevy Cruze 1LT, and since the water pump on Nathan’s 1999 Honda Civic needs to be replaced, he decided to lease a 2015 Cruze Eco. Nathan likes the looks of the Cruze, as well as the fact that his is a 6-speed manual transmission. “I like manuals and when [...]
