Welcome to the Eide Family: Eide Chrysler St. Cloud

Posted at Wed, Jan 3, 2024 12:30 PM

We are excited to announce that we have a new addition to our Eide family: Eide Chrysler St. Cloud! 

As we enter 2024, this change to our store is exciting for our staff, our customers, and for our local community. 

Although our name is changing from McKay's Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Fiat to Eide Chrysler St Cloud, our team is not. Yes, we will be adding some personnel, but our current team isn’t going anywhere. We are still here to take care of you and all of your sales, service, and parts needs. 

The Eide Organization has a very interesting history: Eide began in 1974 when we opened our very first location in Grand Forks, ND. In 1981, we were fortunate enough to move to Bismarck, ND, and open Eide Ford. In 2010, we added Eide Chrysler Pine City to the family. We then acquired Eide Chrysler in Bismarck in 2016, and then moved across the river and gained Eide Ford Mandan and Eide Kia in 2022. And now, we are excited to welcome Eide Chrysler St. Cloud going into 2024. 

Eide Pillars

We have 4 pillars in our Eide Philosophy, driven by our Mission Statement: Create a lifetime customer by providing excellent products and customer service. Live by the motto of transparency and make the process of doing business Simple, Fast, and Fun. We are proud to offer an easy, hassle-free experience, creating a purchase experience you can enjoy. 

Markdown Pricing: We are a Markdown Store, meaning all of our vehicles are priced competitively and are posted clearly on our website, in alignment with our policy of transparency. We incorporate Time Saving, Hassle Free, Fair Price every day, in each deal and service appointment.

Risk Free Used Vehicles: Our Risk Free Used Vehicle Program is exclusive to our Eide dealerships, and applies to most of our 2019 and newer used vehicles with under 100,000 miles. These vehicles receive these “perks:”

  • A comprehensive "No Exception" inspection
  • 60 day/3,000 mile Powertrain Warranty
  • Our exclusive "Engine for Life" coverage (diesels excluded)
  • 5 day/250 mile money back guarantee
  • Free Autocheck or Carfax vehicle history report
  • 1 year/12,000 miles Roadside Assistance (800) 924-0122
  • Free annual inspections for as long as you own the vehicle

Fair Market Trade-In Value: By looking at multiple sources such as Kelley Blue Book, surrounding markets, guidebooks, as well as the overall condition and mileage, we guarantee you a fair value for your vehicle, and we will buy your vehicle even if you do not buy from us. And if you do buy from us, the value of your trade will not change based on what you buy from us. 

Service Excellence: We have many Master Certified Technicians on our staff, our Service Department is open for many hours during the week, our online service scheduling tool is easy, and we offer Complimentary Courtesy Shuttle Service for all of our customers. 

Promoting From Within

One part of our Eide culture that we are extremely proud of is how we promote from within. Everyday, we strive to aid in the growth of all of our employees, both professionally and personally. As our employees grow in their careers, and as Eide Automotive Group continues to grow, we are fortunate enough to be able to promote our employees, so they can take their next step in their careers. 

One example of how Eide promotes from within is Don Pask, General Manager at Eide Chrysler in Bismarck. Don started as an intern at Eide Ford in Bismarck, worked his way up into Sales, was then promoted into Finance, and then into Sales Management at Eide Chrysler. As he was trained in the different managing roles, he then became General Sales Manager, and then General Manager. 

Don’s story is not the only one like that within our group. We have many employees who have grown their careers and moved through different departments to find their perfect fit, and have been fortunate enough to grow immensely with the Eide Automotive Group. 

One thing that will be changing slightly are our hours. Our Sales Department will be open from 8:30am-7pm Monday through Friday, and 8:30am-5pm Friday and Saturday. Our Service and Parts departments will be open 7am-6pm, Monday through Friday, and will remain closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

“We are thrilled for this new opportunity that we as the Eide Automotive Group have been presented with,” says Tom Fischbach, General Manager of Eide Chrysler Pine City, and now of Eide Chrysler St. Cloud. “We have a great team already set at the store, and we are excited to take this store to the next level in many ways.”

“We are very excited to keep pacing the road of success within the Eide organization to the people in St. Cloud and Minnesota,” says Jamie Jeter. “I am thankful for the opportunity to take on a new role at Eide Chrysler St. Cloud within the sales department.”

We are extremely excited for this next step for Eide Chrysler St. Cloud, and for the St. Cloud and Waite Park communities. We are looking forward to servicing you and your vehicle needs now and into the future.
