Nicole Thor – Sister to God of Thunder

Robs customer 6-24-09 (1)We recently had a chance to interview Nicole Thor. Sitting patiently in the showroom while her car was being serviced, Nicole looked like she wanted to have a chat. They say everyone has a story to tell … so I decided to sit down and listen to her story.

Thor, that’s a sweet last name.
Yea it’s like the God of thunder, roooar!

What brought you to Runde’s today?
I am just here for an oil change.

I hear you’ve bought vehicles from here before?
Yep. I bought my ’08 Suzuki Grand Vitara from here.

How were you treated?
It was awesome! Great the whole way through and completely honest.

How’s the Grand Vitara runnin’ for ya?
You know, I have never had a car with a less amount of trouble. I really enjoy the service and the warranty it has.

When did you buy the car?
January.  I’ve had it for about six months now.

And no problems with it so far?
None at all! Before the Grand Vitara, I had a BMW X5 that I had a bunch of problems with. I bought it from a dealer that mislead me and told me that it had one owner but it actually had eight. I was literally in the shop every week for repairs on it. I really like the CarFax that Runde’s gives on each of their vehicles online.

What would you say is the best part of your experience at Runde’s?
I just really like the honesty. They just lay it out like: “this is what we can offer you, here’s what we can do for you, would you like it? Ok, let’s go” there is not circling around or swindling, they are just straight forward.

If you were to rank Runde’s on a scale of 1-10 what would you give it?
I’d give you a 10. Especially after I had such a bad experience at one dealership to come back to this dealership and have a good experience – that’s awesome.

What have you been using the vehicle for?
I actually commute, every day, to Platteville for work. I use it every day for that ride which is about 35 miles roundtrip and it has been a smooth ride, every time.

re you from the area?
I actually live in Peosta but I’m originally from Dubuque.

Have any pets?
We have two cats! Simba and Larry and we love them!

Is Simba named after a familiar Disney movie?
You got it! He looks just like him! And Larry is just named after an old man.

Do you have a favorite area in the Tri-States that you like to visit?
The Mississippi!  I like to boat, my boyfriend owns one and we like to go out as much as possible.

Do you have a favorite movie?
I just saw The Hangover, it was just one of those typical, stereotypical funny movies.

Do you have a favorite restaurant?
Fried Green Tomatoes. I love their food.

What kind of music do you like?
I like OAR.

If you were to win the lottery what would you do with the money?
I’d go shopping, a lot.

That’s all I got for ya Nicole, anything else you’d like to add?
It was great service! I love it here. Everything was fantastic.
