Customer Testimonials for Lake Norman Imports

J Rover - 2013 Range Rover Sport


I’ve purchased vehicles from a used car lot, an auction, and brand new from a Mercedes dealership. But this was by far the best car buying experience I’ve ever had!  

Disclaimer: I purposely did not write a review for almost 1 year after signing the papers and guess what…I’m just as excited today about the purchase and experience as I was the day I bought from Lake Norman Imports!!

We have a boat on Lake Norman and for years drove past this dealership. You couldn’t help but to stop to take a peak every few months because of all the cool cars on the lot. They have the absolute best luxury vehicle collection of anyone I know. Everything is in excellent condition and more affordable than competitors. All the reviews online are amazing, which is very rare in this industry. And just as important, they have the best customer service team EVER. Honest, friendly, down-to-earth people.

After doing much research and having horrible experiences with others, I picked up the phone, called Lake Norman Imports and Garrett Beam answered. I told him I was on the market for a white 2013 Range Rover Sport HSE with tan leather, the 2-toned chocolate dash board, around 50,000 miles or less for $40K’ish. I said “If you find that for me, I will buy it.” He said he would find me that vehicle and sure enough, not even 1 week later he called to say a former customer of theirs that bought the exact RR I wanted was coming to trade up for a new one - WOW! I bought the Rover the same day I test drove it.

I’ve pinged Garrett throughout the year for this and that and he always delivers. They changed my rims to ones I liked better. They service my car. Let me drive another car off the lot if I need to run errands. Set me up at a desk so I can work from there. Offer bottled water or soda each visit. Washes my car too. Once, I accidentally left some birthday cupcakes at the dealership. Ricky drove them to the restaurant I was at just in time for our celebration. Garry is fun to talk to when hanging out there. Joe helped walk me through a minor mechanical issue by phone and I was able to fix it myself. And if that’s not enough, the dogs that run around inside are the cutest (and wear bow ties)!

See, this wasn’t a onetime transaction. This is a relationship throughout the ownership of this vehicle.

A lifelong customer,


Lake Norman Imports - 2010 BMW 335i

Best buying experience ever! Integrity throughout! by innkeeper231 from Washington, DC I spoke with Garry and Al by telephone prior to purchasing the vehicle. They were excellent to work with and they immediately demonstrated their integrity and commitment to customers. Purchasing from out of state, I flew in to Charlotte to pick up the car. Prior to my arrival, Garry told me that Maddie would meet me at the airport to drive me to their location. As soon as my flight landed, Maddie phoned and told me she would meet me at arrival curbside. She told me to look for a blonde in a small white BMW - I laughed to myself thinking, "I didn't think I'd ever hear that in my lifetime - I'm liking this deal already" :) Maddie was delightful - her gracious welcome was echoed by both Chance and Al when I arrived at their location. The car was detailed and ready to drive when I arrived. Chance took me on an excellent test drive and answered all of my questions in a very informed manner. When I pointed out one small issue with the car (wheel alignment), he arranged to have this serviced at a facility across the street - while we completed the paperwork. They even offered to buy me lunch. Throughout the process, everyone that I encountered was sincere and helpful. I observed their same courtesy and exceptional service with other customers while I was there. I am in the customer service business, and I wish they all could work with me. I drove the 400 miles back to my home that same afternoon. The car ran PERFECTLY and I am extremely happy with my purchase. We often hear of exceeding expectations, but the staff and the cars at Lake Norman Imports nailed it. I am happier with my purchase than I expected to be - which is extremely rare. Don't hesitate to work with these wonderful people. You will be glad you did. Chance and Maddie, all the best in the future. I left North Carolina considering you friends, and I hope to see you again in TC. I'll look you up!!

Lake Norman Imports - 2009 Infiniti G35

Great Experience!!! Alex from Nashville, TN "I was out driving the G35 today. What a great car!!!! It was everything that you said it was. My wife and I were so surprised at how good it looks being that old. I really wasn't looking forward to buying a vehicle as I have been driving a company car or lease for the last 20 years and associated buying a car the same as going to the dentist. I did buy a couple used vehicles for my kids and hated the experience at the Nissan dealers even though I worked for Nissan for 26 years. I was even looking less forward to working with a "used" car dealer. You guys have restored my faith and opinion in the sales community for purchasing a car. This has been a great experience for me due to your friendliness, flexibility and hassle free attitude. I wish you were a little closer as I could probably send some more business your way. If I ever get to your neck of the woods, I will stop in and say hi. I would love to meet and personally thank both of you. Again, thanks for your help and for the beautiful car. By the way, thanks for the hat and key chain also-nice touch.
