Kathy and Marv Jones – Much Love for Runde’s

Recently I had the chance to get to meet Marv and Kathy Jones, two fine folks from Freeport, IL. They enjoyed their experience so much that they wanted to share it with me and the rest of the world. Here’s what they had to say:

What led you here to Runde Auto Group?
I’m always lookin’ for something. Yesterday I drove through the PreDriven lot and saw a car the caught my eye. So I got out and looked at it then told my wife about it, before you know it we were talking to Al.

What did you think of your experience here?
It was absolutely great.

On a scale of 1-10 what would you rate your salesman, Al Kloft?
Probably an 11. He was really cool. He’s laid back and straight forward.

Where are you guys from?
We’re from Freeport. We live in Cuba City now. It will be two years come February.

What vehicle were you looking for?
We were looking for an Avalanche because we figured it would be in our price range, I was just about to go home after seeing some decent ones but decided to drive through the Suzuki lot and found the Avalanche we bought today.

Would you recommend Runde’s to friends and family?
Ohhh, definitely.

What do you guys like to do in your spare-time?
We like to go on vacations with family and friends.
Marv: I have a motorcycle I like to ride around.

Bet you can’t wait till this nasty cold weather goes away, huh?
You have no idea! Last summer I went to Colorado and back on my motorcycle, might go to Yellowstone this year.

Do you have kids?
We have one son, Daniel is a Chiropractor in Platteville.

Make sure to give him word about your great experience here, we’d love to have more of your family become our family.
Definitely, will do.

Do you have a favorite restaurant in the area?
We eat out a lot, we like Olive Garden quite a bit. Like Perkins for breakfast.

What do you plan on doing with the vehicle?
Just for general use. Back and forth to work and whatnot.

Where would you visit if you had the money and time?
New England, Alaska… we haven’t really been to any exotic places. We were supposed to go on a cruise this month but canceled.

Do you have anything else to add?
I was just impressed with everything. Most places are very “pushy” but I felt very comfortable with him. If we were to say “sorry, we are no longer interested in the vehicle” Al would understand and not hold any grudges. He’s what a salesman should be.

Thank you so much for sitting down with me today, enjoy your Avalanche!


  1. I have been trying to track down Marv & Kathy for several years now. Kathy was a bridesmaid in my wedding back in 1974. I had heard they might live in the Freeport area. Please give Kathy my e-mail address and tell them that I’d love to hear from them and catch up on our lives since 1974. Thank you so much!

  2. By the way… Corvettes rule! 😉
