Galena Couple Takes Home a 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe!


Cletus and Candy Saam, of Galena, IL, picked up their third Corvette from Runde Auto Group yesterday!

The torch red 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe sparkled in the sun outside the dealership as the couple, clad in their Corvette T-shirts, spoke about their love of Chevrolet.

“He’s been a Chevy person since he started driving,” Candy said about Cletus. “His cars are more than cars, they are his babies. He’s picky about them and he takes care of them. I get a lot of exercise because we park really far away from everything.”

Their salesperson was Dave Frazier at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque, IL.

“He wasn’t high pressure,” Candy said. “High pressure doesn’t go well with me.”

She said the vehicles they buy get plenty of road time.

“We drive them,” Candy said. “They don’t sit. There’s no point in having a car if it’s going to sit in a garage where no one sees it or drives it.”

Happy driving, Cletus and Candy!

A Shiny Birthday Present with a Chevy Bowtie!


Theresa Ernst got herself a wonderful birthday present today: a brand new Chevy Equinox from Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque!

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox 1LT FWD was ready and waiting for her with a red bow on the hood.

This was the Dubuque resident’s first vehicle from Runde Auto Group. Theresa’s son Brad and several of her co-workers had referred her to Runde’s.

“It was just easy,” she said of working with salesperson Jake Meyer. “Leasing was brand new to me and so we didn’t really know what to ask. Jake was great and went more in detail and covered things we wouldn’t have even thought to ask.”

The SUV will enable Theresa to visit some family members in Minnesota.

“I’ve got relatives out of town and I was always leery of going to visit them because I wasn’t sure if my car was going to make it,” she said. “Now I can be a free spirit and go see them.”

Buying a Truck from a Friend at Runde’s

7-11-15 Zach High

Zach High recently found his perfect truck at Runde Chevrolet: a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado K1500 WT 4WD Ext Cab!

The East Dubuque resident bought it from his longtime friend, salesperson Jacob Puls.

“It went smoothly and he knew what he was talking about,” Zach said. “He knew what I wanted.”

Zach was looking for a reliable vehicle with four-wheel drive and low mileage. He said it will be great for day-to-day driving but he likes that it has the capability for hauling when the need arises.

This was Zach’s first purchase from Runde Auto Group, but he said it will not be his last!

Happy driving, Zach!
