It has finally arrived: the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado! What Chevy has called the “truck for all occasions,” this mid-size pickup has it all: great fuel economy as well as best-in-class towing and payload. The 3.6L V6 engine offers 26 MPG highway and is rated to tow up to 7,000 pounds! “Our strategy is simple: meet the needs of the broadest possible customer base, and let them choose precisely the right truck to meet their needs,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president and president of GM North America, when the truck was unveiled in 2013. “The all-new Colorado benefits from the solid foundation established by the Silverado, and it reinvents the midsize truck while reinvigorating the segment at the same time.” Owners of the 2015 Colorado enjoy amenities of a truck [...]
Tim Meyer of Dubuque is an old bird when it come to selling new Chevrolet vehicles.  ( By “old bird”, we mean someone who has experience … a multitude of experience).  He recently came on board at Runde’s and has already had the pleasure of helping several wonderful people purchase new vehicles here.

Absolutely, I come from pretty humble beginnings. I’m from an automobile parts family from here in Dubuque Iowa. My father ran an auto parts company called Sieg Dubuque [...]
Going about our daily business here at Runde’s, we pretty much know everyone we work with so it’s pretty obvious when a new face pops up wearing a Runde shirt. This happened again a few weeks again.  After finally figuring out that this reoccurring face was not just an extremely loyal customer who loved wearing Runde garments, we seized up the opportunity to interview our newest employee, Brian Pinch.   What do you do here at Runde’s?   I’m a sales consultant here for new Chevy vehicles.   How long have you worked here?   I’ve been here just a few weeks now.   Are you originally from the area?   I’m originally from Dubuque and lived here most of my life.  I lived in Cedar Rapids until fourth grade.   What is your best experience at Runde’s to date?   My best experience [...]
Dan Cotter came in the other day to buy yet another truck from Tim Runde. While he was here he explained his 2,544 mile trip from Washington to Pennsylvania as well as his plans for his future epic adventures. That seems like quite the trip Dan. What was the purpose of the trip? “My daughter was working at a veterinarian hospital in Washington but was offered a job in Pennsylvania at an emergency hospital for animals. In bigger towns they have clinics like that where you can take in your animal 24/7.” “First we went to Colorado to see a buddy of mine race in the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Then we went to Washington and made a few stops on our way to Pennsylvania. The trip took a couple of weeks in all.”   How did the truck serve ya? “We bought the truck from Runde’s and it has been great. No hitches [...]
A BIG surprise was in store for me as I walked out to the showroom floor the other day. A beautiful Mastiff was sitting with his owner, Jesse Coulson, who was in for some service on his Colorado. Wow Jesse, that is a huge dog! How old is he? He’s 22 months old. He weighs close to 180lbs currently, I expect him to grow to around 200lbs. He’s a Mastiff right? Pretty nice dogs from what I hear.  He seems very attentive – probably a good bird watcher. They are called “Gentle Giants” and that is very true of Magnum. One time our family went on a vacation and Magnum was distressed because [...]
I recently had the chance to sit down with Rodney and Sherry Schroeder after they purchased a vehicle from our Chevrolet store. What did you guys do here today? We just purchased a Chevy Trailblazer. What led you to get that vehicle? Well, we had a van and we were lookin’ for a seven-passenger vehicle — something different than a van. Do you have a big family? Well, we have three kids. How old are your kids and what do they do?  They are twelve, eleven and six and all of them are going to school. And what they do is drive us nuts (laughs).   Are they excited for the new vehicle? Ohhhh yes. So what are you planning to do with the vehicle? Take [...]
