Our Ford Drive 4 UR School test drive event on Friday raised more than $5,000 for the West Delaware Athletic Booster Club!

The event, held at the Beckman Sports Complex in Manchester, saw more than 250 test drives of new Ford vehicles. For each test drive, Ford donated $20.

“It was hosted during a softball tournament so we had a great turnout,” said Aaron Young, sales manager at Runde Ford Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Manchester. “It will be a very positive boost for the community.”

Thank you to everyone who test drove a vehicle! 🚗🚗

Dan Pyzocha2

We are pleased to announce that Dan Pyzocha has joined the sales team at Runde Ford Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Manchester!

Dan has a background in road construction, but has always had an interest in the automotive industry.

“The majority of people rely on their vehicle almost every day,” Dan said. “Vehicles are always going to be our main means of transportation here in the rural Midwest as well as where memories are going to be made. With that being said, buying a new vehicle is a big event to most people and I’m happy knowing that I have the opportunity to be a part of that event.”

Originally from Massachusetts, Dan grew up in Dubuque and currently resides in Epworth. He and his wife Angela have two children, Adelynn and Aliyah.

“When I married my wife, we decided to both change our last name to my mother’s maiden name to help carry on the family name,” Dan said. “My mom is one of three sisters and has no brothers.”

In his spare time, Dan enjoys spending time with his family and friends, as well as cheering on the Cubs and Hawkeyes. So far he is pleased with his career change.

“I am really enjoying the people I work with, and working with the customers,” he said. “I already have my first couple sales under my belt!”

Dan’s favorite vehicle is an all-black Jeep Wrangler. He hopes to help you find the perfect vehicle for you in Runde Auto Group’s large selection of more than 1,700 vehicles.

“Great customer service to me means doing everything possible to make sure every customer is 100% satisfied,” he said. “I am here to make sure that your car buying experience is as enjoyable as possible.”

Dan can be reached by calling 866-580-9767 ext. 565, or by emailing dpyzocha@rundeautogroup.com.

We are excited to announce that Kelley Blue Book has named the 2018 Chevrolet Impala, the 2018 Ford F-150 and the 2018 Ford Expedition as Best Buys for 2018!

The Best Buy awards choose the best value vehicles in 12 categories, as well as an overall winner. They compare features like pricing, cost to own, use-ability, consumer reviews, and more.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Chevrolet Impala was named the best full-size sedan by Kelley Blue Book! You can get yours at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque, IL or Runde Chevrolet Buick GMC in Platteville, WI!

“Whether it’s a matter of price, size, style or features, the 2018 Impala will give you 2018_chevrolet_impala_sedan_premier_fq_oem_4_1280.jpgsomething to appreciate every day you own it,” Kelley Blue Book noted in its announcement. “And speaking of owning it, in addition to collecting KBB’s Best Buy Award for full-size cars, last year’s Impala took home our 5-Year Cost-to-Own Award in the full-size-car category for its sixth straight season.”

This is also the fourth year in a row that the Ford F-150 has won the best truck category! Take one for a test drive at Runde Ford Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Manchester, IA.

2018-ford-f-150-thumbnail-4cms“Expected niceties like leather seats are available, of course, but so are unique features like Ford’s Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which lets you more intuitively align your trailer using a simple knob on the dash,” according to Kelley Blue Book. “There are power-operated running boards available, a remote-release tailgate, and even a tailgate with an integrated, slide-out step. Then there’s adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, accident detection and avoidance, lane keeping assist, and all the safety and convenience features you’d expect in a nicely equipped luxury sedan. Along with its excellent reliability and resale value, there’s no question that the 2018 Ford F-150 earns its Best Buy honor.”

The re-designed 2018 Ford Expedition won the full-size SUV/Crossover category.

“With its elevated seating position helping deliver excellent visibility, the Expedition 2018-Ford-Expedition-front-three-quarter-in-motion-02-e1486485894126-1.jpgdrives like a smaller vehicle than its large footprint would lead you to believe,” Kelley Blue Book said. “Thanks to its independent rear suspension, it also has a decidedly non-truck feel to its ride. A host of driver assists, including blind spot warning and lane keeping assist, make it easy to keep the Expedition on track.”

Kelley Blue Book is a longtime trusted resource for helping consumers research, price and shop for vehicles.
