Paul and Kate Avenarius picked up their new truck today at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque, and it’s one that stands out from the crowd!
The 2015 Silverado 1500 Z71 4WD LTZ Crew Cab has black out rims, black Chevy bowties, as well as a bedliner.
“It’s the dream truck,” Paul said. “It’s the black rims, the accessories, all the options that we wanted. It’s seven years in the making.”
Before this, Paul was driving a 2007 Chevy Silverado he bought at Runde Auto Group.
The couple, who live in Peosta, have two daughters: Addison, 7, and Makenna, 3. Addison was at school while they picked up the truck, and Makenna colored with a Runde pen as she waited.
“She does not want me to get a new truck,” Paul said. “It’s the first and only car they’ve known me to have.”
Their salesperson was Jake Meyer.
“He was easy to deal with,” Paul said. “When we were looking for this truck, we were told to look other places too. We called and after just the phone call, it was done with. We ended up right back where we started.”
Paul and Kate have bought several vehicles from Runde’s.
“We like you guys so much that next time I need a car, we will be over here,” Kate said. “You guys are awesome. We don’t have to deal with any sales pitches or pressure. We recommend Runde to everyone we talk to who is looking for a new car.”
