Prestman Auto Hours
Prestman Auto was founded in 1989 by Cory Olsen in Salt Lake City, Utah. From our humble beginnings in a small warehouse on 300 West, Prestman Auto has grown steadily over the years into what is now one of the largest independent dealerships in Utah. We celebrated our 25th birthday in June 2014! How many dealerships can say the same?
We are proud of where we've come from, and with our incredibly talented team we're excited what the future has in store for us. We welcome you to experience the Prestman Auto difference in person at our showroom at 2865 State Street in Salt Lake City, or read about it through our Google reviews.

I read a lot of reviews and visited this dealership quite a few times before we bought our car, I'm not sure why there are so many negative experiences... because ours was so quick, easy and not pushy at all. They consistently checked on us but they were not overbearing at all. When we were ready they worked with us on the price and loan to make sure we were happy and what we wanted to work in our budget. I will definitely buy my next vehicle there and will write another review based on that experience. Thanks Prestman!
*CHECK THEIR BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU REVIEWS/GRADE*. I rarely review anything. I just dont really care to, but in the case of Prestman I will write a review... on every platform I can find. I purchased a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee from them. I owned the car for around 3 months, and it was in the shop for various reasons for a total of *6 WEEKS* on and off during this time. There were two separate times the car stalled or the same check engine lights came back on within 30 minutes of leaving the Prestman service center. The car was a lemon, plain and simple. I spent over $1500 on repairs and tow trucks within 2 months of purchasing the car. On one occasion I took the jeep into Prestman for a scheduled repair. I took a day off work as I would have no car. It sat there for 8 hours before I called to check on the status and nothing had been done. The parts were never even ordered and no one bothered to call me. On another occasion (had owned it for 6 weeks at this point) the car was smoking/shaking and reporting a check engine code. I took it into the shop for probably the fourth time in a month, and told Tammie what all was going on. After three days I called to check on the status and NO ONE EVEN KNEW WHY I HAD BROUGHT IT IN. When I spoke to Dan, he said they fixed some other unrelated issue. I said "great, what about the smoking and shaking?" and he had absolutely no clue what I was talking about. No one had even started to work on figuring it out because it Tammie never told anyone. The service center has no clue what is going on. It is remarkable how unorganized they are. I finally sold the car back to Prestman for about $6000 less than I bought it. That is, until I found out the $3000 warranty was completely NONREFUNDABLE. Some of my family members own car dealerships, and this is apparently unheard of. The people at mountain america who financed the car were shocked when I showed them the paperwork. They couldnt believe it. Stay far away from this business. The prices are very attractive, and believe me there is a reason they are so low.
I highly recommend Prestman Auto! We found a truck we liked and simply inquired about the vehicle. Jared Barnes got ahold of me and made the entire buying... process incredibly easy and hassle free! We live in Montana and bought the truck from salt lake to drive home and had a mishap during our travels to pick up the vehicle and Jared was more than willing to help and was there to assist and help in any and all ways! When I'm in the market to buy another vehicle I will search Prestman Auto first thing before looking anywhere else.
Liars and shady tactics. I would NEVER buy from them. I even met one of the owners and he was the epitome of the 'used car salespeople' stereotype, but... dropped a level lower with 'salvaged car salesman.' Just a Horrible person and an even worse company.
I bought a 16 Audi A5 in OCT 2019 Prestman had 45 days to register, inspect and provide the title to CA DMV. In 45 days DMV did not receive the necessary... documents. In turn I did all the due diligence to license and register the vehicle. I paid for all the inspections to take the car out of salvage. I signed and filled out all necessary forms and documents to register my vehicle. Prestman failed to: 1) register the vehicle in February of 2018 or fill out CA DMV Planned Non-Operation (PNO) option. 2) Prestman failed to conduct all inspections required to clear the salvage title and provide me with a branded title within the promised timeframe. Therefore, I should not be billed for dealer doc fee $489 Inspection fee $192 Lic and Registration $110 CA DMV Registration from 2/2019-2/2020 $615 This is a total of $1,406
Yikes I live in AZ was interested in the Tesla but YIKES never mind, ill shop else and come to see a salvage title???? Holy crap
Don’t buy here! This dealership that advertises selling “the highest quality vehicles possible” sold me a car with no primer under the paint, and $5,000... in hidden damage! Once I found out about the paint, their old manager Travis offered to fix it by paying to install a Clearbra on the car and repaint the hood. My car was just in the shop and the manager told me he found $5000 in “hidden damages” inside the car including missing hardware and even the incorrect screws to hold the car together. I sent all the photographs of the damages to Daniel the service manager at the Salt Lake location and he blamed the builder they bought the car from, saying there’s nothing he could do and that Travis had just left his job so now the company has no one that cares about upholding their image or being true to their word of quality anymore. It’s sad when all the other employees there who heard my story before connecting me with management all understood and sympathized with my plight and then hearing over and over while on hold “we sell the highest quality vehicles possible”. What an insult. Avoid at all costs.
Don't buy a car from this place! They are telling all their customers to give them 5 stars on their google service. I would recommend you do your homework... first. Things to watch out on them- *** Don't buy their Extended Warranty, it does nothing for you, I purchased a car from them, thought it would be wise to buy this extended warranty, it did nothing for me, I still ended up paying over $900 dollars in repairs for an issue with the locks and air condition. You can't even get your money back, like one of the google reviews said, you're stuck with it for the length you purchase it. People it's a huge scam, dont buy it, when they try to sell you on it. This company partners with a company in Utah! **I also recommend you do a Google search on the vin number of the car you're looking to get from their Lindon or Salt Lake City dealership. *Thing they try to sell you on, is that car is going to be cheaper then buying a new car and sometimes even an used car. If I were people in Utah, I would recommend you go to a actual dealership that is reputable when you buy a salvage title, you thing you're getting awesome price but at the end of the day, car will cost you as much as you save or even more. In conclusion, I would recommend if you're looking at the Lindon or Salt Lake City dealership, do your homework first, they dont even work on their prices, even if their cars have dents or major issues on the cars. I will never recommend any of my friends or family to this place or ever buy a car from this place. This is an honest review, that wants to protect people from the lessons, I have learned from this company. They are not to be trusted by!
I was looking at a used car online and prestman auto seemed to have the best options as far as price and options, as grooling as the paperwork process... is at any dealership, Nate and Tyler were amazing. Afterwards they sent me to Dylan and he was exceptionally bright and was very friendly, with guys like this at your dealership they make every purchase feel like the best one. Thanks guys!
I have nothing but good to say about my purchase. I absolutely love my Honda Pilot and the dealership. Service department is fast and very good. 5 stars... on all there services at the Salt Lake City Dealership
