Having driven Capital Boulevard over the last 20 years, it is easy to remember when the car dealerships were below 540. All the major “players” in the automotive industry were south of Triangle Town Center and those that lived in Wake Forest had to drive down to Raleigh to look at new and used cars. Things are much different in 2018. Not only are most car dealerships north of 540, there are quite a few in Wake Forest.
As you are driving north, one of the major intersections in Wake Forest is Capital Boulevard (US 1) and Falls of Neuse which turns into South Main Street on the Wake Forest side of US 1. At this intersection, there is a newer Chris Leith Dodge Ram dealership. This is a dealership that has “popped up” in the last decade. Those that used to take US 1 to Franklinton or Henderson can remember when this intersection was basically empty.
If you are looking for a new or used Dodge or Ram truck there are a number of options within two hours of Wake Forest. Before assuming Chris Leith is your only option, remember there are a few other great dealerships that you can make in a single day. One of my very good friends had a great experience at Performance CDJR in Clinton. While Clinton, North Carolina is not exactly next door to Wake Forest, it is not a multi day trip. If you know you can save money by traveling for a Dodge or Ram, it would be smart to do so.
If you are planning on using your tax return to buy a Ram truck or Dodge Charger we suggest shopping around at multiple Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram locations. There is no reason to be set on only shopping at Chris Leith Dodge Ram simply because it is the closest to you. Head down into Raleigh and look at some of your options. It doesn’t hurt to call the dealerships in Greensboro and Charlotte as well. If you can save $1000 or $2000 on a new or used car/truck purchase, it is worth the day trip. You will not spend $2000 in gas, I promise.
