    I had a great experience at Houdek purchasing a used car I found on cars.com. I called ahead and the car was waiting for me and warmed up by the door.... Cory was very relaxed and not pushy at all. We were able to drive the car on our own without jumping through any hoops or listening to unnecessary sales pitches. While driving the car off the lot we noticed a light was out and Houdek immediately apologized and will fix the issue. Houdek will be my first stop the next time I am purchasing a used vehicle.

    We were regretting looking for a car as we have had all day events searching and haggling with the big dealer in town. We thought let's give the small... dealers in town a chance. We looked at a few different dealers and Zimmermanhoudek had the cleanest cars and lowest mileage ones we had seen. We picked out a 2012 Ford Edge sel with 63k miles. It's like new. This dealer was easy to talk to great communication and we didnt feel pressured or out of control. He asked us what we were wanting out of our trade we told him he worked the numbers and we took the new to us SUV home that night. It was quick and easy no pressure enviroment we will be referring all of our friends and family to them and they have earned a return customer from here on out. Thanks Clint for a relief in the car buying experience. You made something we dread turn into a great experience.

    I purchased a 2010 Audi S4 from Houdek to replace my 2007 Audi S4 that was totaled in April. I wanted to hold off on a review to get by the "honeymoon"... stage of owning a new car. Overall, the buying experience was pleasant. The sales rep that I worked with was Cory. I noticed the paint was a little rough (nothing a detailer couldn't fix), and Cory pointed it before I even mentioned it so I didn't have any feelings that he was hiding anything. I took the car for a test drive and the only flaw I found was that it was pulling to the right. I mentioned this to Cory and he explained could be due to tire pressures or crowning of the road. He further explained that they don't have an alignment machine but car was thoroughly inspected and everything is tight. As far as the price of the car, he was firm on the price. I spent a week looking at different S4's, and the price matched the current market. I didn't get the car for a steal but I didn't get robbed either. I typically don't buy extended warranties, but it was hard to pass up 36k/36 month power train warranty. I'm hoping I won't have to use it, but if I do, I hope that it works as good as it was advertised. It was a little disappointing that they don't issue temporary plate, which wasn't a deal breaker and Cory explained this to me prior to moving forward with the purchase. It also took nearly a month to get the title. These slightly diminished the buying experience. As far as the car, it is what they said it was. It had some minor dings and scratches but was mechanically sound. As mentioned earlier, the paint needed some TLC. At the dealership, I noticed that the grill was peeling. I thought it was the chrome finish coming off due to lack of maintaining the exterior, but it didn't bother me since I liked the black look. It wasn't until I started picking at it that I figured out that the grill was painted and spent an evening cleaning it off the grill. This issue was more of a minor annoyance than anything serious. I took the car in to have the alignment checked. The garage inspected the car. They found that mechanically was in good condition, but the alignment did need adjusting. While inspecting the car, they also found that there was an odd tire. The car had all Continental Extreme Contact tires, which I'm familiar with, but one of them was a summer version and the other three were all seasons. Since summer tires use a different compound, they are more susceptible to failure and provide less traction in cold weather. I don't think the mix up was deliberate, but it's the primary factor that drove down the rating since tires are major component in keeping the car on the road. Since we were still getting snow in April, I had the garage replace all four tires due to the all wheel drive system. I'm satisfied with the service and with vehicle I purchased. Over the past 2 months, I've racked up about 6k miles. A majority of those miles were trips that we taken with the car, and it's performed flawlessly. If it weren't for the tire issue and the paint on the grill, this would easily be a 4-5 star review. I definitely would consider buying another car from them to give them a 2nd chance.

    Hey guys be aware of this scammers!!! they selling broken cars with warranty that is scam, THER IS NO WARRANTY ON CARS THEY SELLING!!! is a xxxxxxxx that... they will cover your engine and transmission, NOT that the CHECK ENGIN light they don't COVER!!!! If your engin will get broken normally the check engine light is coming on!!! I driving the car that I bought from there for 4 days and the check engine cam on and I went to a dealer, there is big problem at the engine, to fix it i have to pay 2900$, I called them and they told me the check engine come on they don't cover it so they will not pay for the repairs, so be careful if you don't want to get in the same story like I got!!!

    I saw several vehicles of interest in their inventory on Facebook Marketplace and drove an hour to see and test drive three different vehicles. I did not... call ahead, but was instantly greeted and allowed to set my own agenda and test drive all three vehicles. The salesman, Kevin, was very accommodating and helpful with no pressure at any point. Once I identified the vehicle I preferred, I found them to be forthright and fair in negotiating the price, including my trade in. From there, their Finance Manager, Kai, was very helpful in completing the paperwork and accommodating our schedule. I had a five star experience and would gladly recommend this dealership to anyone in the market for a used vehicle.

    At first glance the vehicle that I bought from them is flawless on the test drive drove amazing but I didn’t even have the car for 4 hours before the check... engine light came on and not even 2 weeks into the car a pump broke and I got told day after day that I would get the car back the following day and didn’t the buying experience was easy as can be the only complaint I have is being more upfront about repairs and making sure they are one of your top priorities when a customer has brought it back for a repair and doesn’t have to wait a whole week

    Was insanely patient with me. Looked at alot of cars. They didn't pressure me or try to push anything for their gain. Overall, it was a great buying experience.
