Cox's Harley Davidson Testimonial

Steven our sales person was the best part of this overall experience for me. My husband wanted a Harley and we had tried 3 different dealerships before coming here. I'm huge on customer service and Steven was the absolute best!!!!!! I can't say enough good things about him. We had our own financing, and the finance manager came across a little abrasive because we didn't go through Harley, but our overall experience with the whole team was awesome!!! Thank you Steven for helping us feel special and we look forward to long lasting relationship with you!
