Best Used Car Buying Experience Bar None ~~~

by from Cedar Rapids , Iowa |

Took the drive from Cedar Rapids to Des Moines not knowing what to expect. Wow Bob Dougherty has an excellent thing going. The car was just as explained over the phone if not better. I have purchased lots of used vehicles all over the country and this place is at the top of the list. I would send all my friends to visit his Great facility. The price was incredible and we were in and out in no time at all. Will be buying from him again soon.

Purchased twice

by from Des Moines, IA |

I purchased a 98 Mazda Protege from Certified Auto about two years ago and it still runs great. I've had no issues with it, what so ever. My boyfriend recently was in the market for a new vehicle and this was his first and only stop. The prices are good and the buy here, pay here option is great for someone like me with bad credit! Everyone is friendly and helpful. I will always recommend Certified Auto to anyone looking for well priced, dependable vehicles!

2nd purchase...

by from Urbandale IA |

We just reciently purchased a 2007 Chevy Suburban from Certified Auto, and this is our 2nd vehicle purchase. We are very happy with the service and sales from there. They have always treated us more than fair and the prices were great. I am glad that the Des Moines market has such a trustworthy place to buy vehicles! Thank you Certified Auto for all you do!

WONDERFUL BUYING EXPERIENCE!

by from Johnston, IA |

WONDERFUL BUYING EXPERIENCE! The owners are easy and relaxing to work with. I got a great deal and the Prius I bought runs like a champ! I have put over 150,000 miles on it and haven't had any issues with it.

Nice people and great service.

by from Des Moines |

We ran into an unforseen problem with a Ford Mustang we bought from Certified - they didn't have to do anything (No Warranty was pretty plain on the window sticker when I got the car) But they went above and beyond and fixed the problem without my having to even ask. Everyone I dealt with there was great and the service after the sale was outstanding. Five stars.
