Default Good Dealer in Soutwestern CT (near Danbury or Stamford)?

Just looking for any dealer recommendations in the area, I live in Newtown and work in Stamford. I'm willing to drive a bit for a decent dealer...

Any good experiences from the folks on here?

My sister lives in Sandy Hook, they go to Waterbury to buy any vehicles
Her husband has an auto body shop there in Waterbury, so likely that is why they buy their vehicles in Waterbury

Personally i use Bradshaw Chrysler and Jeep Dealership when i am back East
554-581 Main Street in Oakville, CT
Bradshaw Chrysler and Jeep Dealership
554-581 Main Street
Oakville, CT
unfortunately they don't deal with Ram trucks, except for Service

Crowley Ram in Bristol is too far away, but they always treated me right

Maybe one of the Connecticut members can tell you about
Garavel Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram
300 Westport Ave
Norwalk, CT 06851
i read the reviews & they seem to be one of the better dealerships

Might be a bit far to go but Roberts Dodge is on Rte 5 in Meriden. Not far off of 691. Can't think of any places out your way. Must be something off of rte 7, no?

Thanks for all the input, I'm currently troubleshooting a hesitation/surging/stalling issue on my RAM and think I might end up needing to take it to a dealer to continue troubleshooting. Here's my thread on the issue: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=127402

My wife went to the Dodge dealer in Danbury, and even after she gave them all the info on the truck, they couldn't even manage to give her the correct oil filter.

I took the truck to Milford Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram when I worked in Trumbull, CT and had them do a PCM reflash when I bought the truck to ensure it had the latest software. They seemed to be decent, and I would consider going back there. Just wanted to see if anyone had a really good experience with one of the local dealers and their ability to troubleshoot a difficult issue.

Thanks!

I have bought a few Jeeps and now a Ram from Wetmores in New Milford.
Have always found them easy to work with.

Pamby's in Ridgefield seems to be ok. I've only dealt with them twice for parts.
