We have purchased two Jeeps in the last 18 months and this was our first experience with Salerno Duane. The customer service made this the best car buying experience that we've ever had at a dealer. I am a business owner and my time management is tight so I did a lot through email and phone. I told Mike and Henry what I was looking for and what price we wanted and they made it happen. I was literally in and out of there in no time at all which was very different from my last experience at another Jeep dealer. This was our first experience ever leasing and the other dealer couldn't compare to the lease deal that Salerno Duane gave us. I would highly recommend this dealer and Im looking forward to working with them again.

I just had an excellent experience buying a pre-owned Jeep at Salerno Duane in Summit with Jason Sporer. Jason is professional, courteous, informative, helpful and was soooo patient with me. It was an EXCELLENT experience and I would highly recommend Jason and this dealership to everyone!!! You will not be sorry if you go to Salerno Duane in Summit and ask for Jason Sporer!!! I would also like to add that I dealt with Joe, the manager, as well and could not be happier---he is another very professional, courteous, and helpful employee at Salerno Duane. They make a GREAT team!

I traded in my 2016 F150, which I got from Salerno at a fantastic price, to get the 2017 F150 with more options. Andreas, the sales manager, and Mo, the finance manager, did absolutely everything right. They gave me an unbelievable deal for my trade in and an awesome deal on the new truck. I honestly felt like I was dealing with my own family.

To be sure, I shopped all around the tri state area on the web and no one could beat their deal. They are fair, honest and just plain good people.

The owner, Mike, was a complete gentleman too. They have a customer for life.

I was recommended to see Pete Milevski by several friends who have purchased vehicles from him over the last 15 plus years. My wife and I also worked with Casey. We had a great experience and leased two vehicles from them on the same day. I highly recommend this dealership to anyone interested in leasing or purchasing a vehicle. We ended up with a Jeep Grand Cherokee and a Ram pickup.

I have worked in the auto industry for 18 years so I have been able to see how different dealerships operate. I had the best experience in all my years purchasing cars with Paul Shorrock my salesman and Mike the manager. Very straightforward, honest, stand up guys. I would highly recommend going to them for your next car if you want a hassle free experience. Definitely not the "highway" experience where you have to check for your wallet after you leave. Great jobs guys!! A++++

We love our new Jeep Compass!

Fast and Friendly Service - After talking on the phone with the kind and considerate Adriana, I took train from Manhattan to Summit, NJ to Salerno Duane Ford on the busy Memorial Day weekend Saturday to look at 2017 Explorers. Pete showed me the entire line-up, explained the differences and costs without any pressure. We looked at multiple pricing options on a couple different Explorers and we went for a spin. Dealt with GEICO on the spot (got insurance), made the lease happen and I DROVE back to Manhattan. Pete even agreed to bring the plates into the city for me (once in) so I didn't have to travel back to Summit. SD is a family business and not a boiler-room, so comfortable atmosphere.

From the moment we walked in we felt like family, no gimmicks, no pressure. Everyone at this dealership is pleasant and down to earth and it's a very laid-back environment. Sal is a great salesperson to work with and really did all he could to provide us the best price and service. Sal went the extra mile, got dirty and sweaty helping us with our Pacifica finding a way to put a spare tire in the storage cargo for the seat. The spare tire did not come with the model we wanted, however Sal found a way to throw it into the deal. Sal was a real pleasure to deal with and knew everything about the vehicle and all the options. Sal even went so far to ensure that all the software for the car was updated to the latest versions to ensure the car was running at optimal performance. Sal was able to get us a great price on our Pacifica and we definitely recommend this dealership and salesperson. Sal had great interaction with all his colleagues and managed the whole process seamlessly. We couldn't be happier and plan on coming back when we are ready to buy again.

I had been interested in the Jeep Compass so I went online and soon after Mariela called me and was able to help me out! She was so very helpful and quick to respond with any questions I had. Stress free! When I finally was able to get to the dealership I was greeted by Mariela who then assigned me to Casey who then took over the rest. He made it so easy to finalize my purchase and explained everything in detail! My husband and I were VERY pleased with the wonderful service we received from both associates. We will refer everyone to Mariela and Casey in the future!! Thank you ! Leyla & Jay!!
