Discovering Our West Salem Used Car Dealership
With a soft opening in December 2014 and a grand opening in late 2015, West Salem is the newest Easton Motors location, joining our other branches in Adams, Baraboo, Beaver Dam, and Portage. Located just outside of La Crosse, off of Highway 16 in the heart of West Salem, Wisconsin, you’ll find us in West Salem’s former Premier Auto and Trailer Trader building.
Serving La Crosse & Beyond with Great Cars
Including our home base of West Salem, some of the additional towns we proudly serve include: Onalaska, Holmen, La Crosse, Sparta, Bangor, Barre Mills, Mindoro and Black River Falls. With our proximity to both Minnesota and Iowa, we’ve also had the unique opportunity to help drivers in those states finance vehicles as well.
Walk-Ins: What To Expect
Our goal at Easton Motors of West Salem is to give you all the time and attention you need in order to make a wise decision about where to purchase a used car or truck, and to consider how your financing options will impact your personal or family budget. It’s one of the many reasons why we start with learning about who you are before we ever begin discussing vehicles. We understand that many of the people who come to us for a car are nervous about their financial circumstances, and whether or not they’ll just get rejected again. In fact, we’re so sensitive to your situation, we’ve even been known to give out a few hugs from time to time.
If there’s any way to make your visit with us more comfortable or accommodating, please let us know!
Getting a Used Car Loan with Us
As with our other locations, the process for getting a car loan at our branch is a little layered, but we try to keep things as simple and quick as possible because we know that sometimes the difference between getting to a job interview, or getting the kids to school, is how fast we’re able to work on your behalf. As always, we want to know about your needs—do you need a truck for heavy hauling, or a speedy sedan for zipping through larger Wisconsin Metro regions?—instead of your wants. From there, we’ll take a look at your total financial situation—not just your credit score. In fact, your credit score is rarely the most important thing we take into consideration when working on your loan. We want to see how stable you are in your job, how secure your housing situation is, and what your personal references say about you. As we like to say, “We finance your future—not your past,” and we want to know that you have a desire to put the best foot forward, financially, over the coming months and years.
Tips for Getting Approved—The First Time
Our branch assistant at Easton Motors of West Salem is Sarah Kinstler, and she has an important tip to share with people who have bad credit, and need to get an auto loan. Sarah says, “My tip for getting a loan with bad credit is to be honest with your finance specialist. We are here to help you, and accurate information helps us to get a clearer picture of your situation and how we can help.”
And then, when someone does get financed? Sarah says, “It’s awesome to see the smiles and pure excitement in people’s faces when they find out they’ve been approved. Many people have commented they never expected to be financed, and in fact were sure they would be turned down. We once had someone so excited about their new vehicle, they did cartwheels in the lobby.”
We hope you’ve enjoyed learning about Easton Motors of West Salem, and whether you’re coming from West Salem proper, nearby La Crosse, or any of our other serving areas, we hope you find the right financing and the perfect vehicle for your needs with us!
