As a repeat customer Sergio came through once again for me in delivering the car we wanted at our desired price. We set everything up ahead of time so I could stroll in on a Saturday morning and the deal was already set up so I wouldn't waste an entire day haggling with less then ethical salesmen like I have dealt with before coming to salerno duane at "highway dealers". Finished up with Mike in finance who was thorough but got me in and out as fast as possible which was what I wanted. Would give these guys 100 stars if I could.

From the follow-up phone call from Angela, the experience was wonderful. Angela was able to get back to me with answers to certain key questions I had. She arranged my appointment to meet the sales Manager, Andreas, who is wonderful, no pressure, and personable. When I arrived at the showroom, Angela greeted me and introduced me to Bill Devine, who would walk me through answers to all my questions, while learning what my needs were, what I wanted and explaining if there were any conflicts with my desires. Several factors led me down the right path which was the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Great choice, I love the vehicle and looking forward to taking it on the beaches. The other great choice was going to Salerno-Duane and meeting Bill Devine and Andreas. I recommend them highly. The posted reviews of Salerno-Duane are what enticed me into going to Summit NJ after visiting the local dealer in Brooklyn (which was a terrible experience).

Can not say enough amazing things about this dealership. From professionalism, to courtesy straight to the basics of the employees developing a relationship with their customers. These guys did everything in their power to make sure that my wife and I were getting exactly what we wanted. They didn't make you feel like you were being pressured or forced into anything. We ended up purchasing four cars from them in less then six months. Joe S, George, Ruben, and both Mikes were extremely helpful. Will definitely be back over and over again. Thank you guys for being an AWESOME dealership and providing such a memorable car buying experience !

George b did a great job showing me the cars. Very knowledgable. Mike did an amazing job accomodating me with the payment that i wanted versus the vehicle that i was potentially looking to buy. Straight shooter no car salesman magic show. Would recommend to anyone. Extremely happy.

I don’t typically write reviews but the experience I had leasing my Jeep from Henry was exceptional and worthy of mention. He made sure I got the best price and when it was time to show me the car he took the time to explain everything about the car. He helped find the features and color I wanted making the shopping experience simple and fun. Thank you Henry Argueta.

This was my family's first time Buying from Salerno.We have For many years used Dover Dodge, ( Pete Milevski). We have purchased over 12 cars from Pete when he was with DD. I went to DD not knowing that Pete was no longer there and was treated VERY VERY POORLy, As was the friends that I sent there. DD lied to me and to my friends that I sent there after Pete left. I called Pete while I was sitting in the DD parking lot and found that he was at Salerno now. Drove straight there and Purchased my daughters new car from him that day. We will be picking up 2 more cars this month from him. Pete Brings a sence of caring and professionalism to his customers. DD You really MESSED up. Pete and Salerno are NOW and will be my and ALL my friends GO TO for Vehicles. THEY CARE about you and it shows. Bye Bye DD you Are NOW Horrible and Lie to your customers. I will NEVER go back TO DOVER DODGE. HELLO SALERNO!!!!! NEW HOME.

Sergio joined Salerno Duane in 2009, however Sergio has been in assisting customers get into the vehicle of their dream since 2002. When Sergio is not assisting customers you more than likely will find him playing or watching soccer. He is an avid NJ Redbulls Fan. Sergio’s favorite vehicle in the product line is the Dodge Durango.
