    I bought a vw jetta back in 2007 and i have always referred my friends to auto connection of Bellevue. I was a student then and the salesman advised on this economical car that has served me all those year without major breakdowns. Am looking forward to get another Larger vehicle and am walking straight back to them.

    I bought a car there 3 years ago. It was an older vehicle but was well maintained and was an ideal price. It is now timw for an upgrade and I will certainly be going there first.

    A year ago we bought a used Jeep Wrangler from Stu and are totally satisfied with the purchase and performance. Our son is relocating back to Seattle and no longer needs the Jeep Wrangler. After trying to sell instantly to a couple of dealers listed online, we soon discovered their instant cash offer was a ploy. These dealers upon inspection used every tactic to justify a low ball sell value. What a frustrating disappointment! We contacted Stu to see if he would offer to buy back the jeep. He provided an offer based upon the Jeep being in the same condition as when we purchased it from him. We accepted Stu’s offer, and we were very pleased the transaction was hassle free. The entire experience was again another great experience. We highly recommend buying from and/or selling to Auto Connections in Bellevue. Stu is awesome to deal with!

    I cannot recommend Auto Connections highly enough. I purchased a car from Frank a few weeks ago. Days after purchasing it, the car started leaking gas. Although I had purchased the vehicle "as is," Frank had it towed to their mechanic and fixed. I showed up a few days later and was handed the keys. Frank is incredibly honest and cares about providing a quality product to his customers. He is professional, puts relationships first, and is stress-free with negotiations. Frank puts his name behind the cars he sells and I am so grateful that I was able to work with a person who lives so authentically. If I need to purchase a car in the future, I would not hesitate to return to Auto Connections.

    Loved working with Stu. We were very pleased purchasing a used jeep. Stu even made it painless to ship the jeep to our son who lives out of state by arranging the pickup by a transporter. We will be back.

    What a joy to work with Stu! When you walk into his showroom it is like walking into a museum or car show where the vehicles are proudly displayed like treasured pieces of art. There has never been any pressure to buy just the joy of sharing his collection of fine automobiles. It is like having a professional, personal shopper prescreen every vehicle he would consider sharing with you. The Mercedes ML 500 that we purchased from him was in immaculate shape. He provided the carfax including all the previous maintenance. His integrity, professionalism, and care for us to get just the right car without intruding in any way definitely will bring us back to him to purchase another vehicle.

    I purchased a Mercedes Benz ML350 from Auto Connections of Bellevue. I dealt with Stu and had the most pleasant car buying experience. Stu went out of his way to help us when we asked, and stayed out of our way when my wife and I wanted to explore the features and test drive the car. Negotiations were straight forward, comfortable and I hope profitable for Stu, because he sure made the transaction right for us. Thank you Stu! Bill

    I hate the car buying process, but working with Mike and Stu was an unbelievably stress-free experience. I walked in knowing which one I wanted, saw it, drove it -- they even let me take it to my mechanic on a 2-hour test drive -- we came to a price and I drove out with it. Everyone is super friendly, easy going and very professional. Every vehicle in this place is clean, is in fantastic condition and has low miles. First class. I will never buy a pre-owned car anywhere else.

    Long story short: If you're looking to purchase a vehicle from Auto Connections of Bellevue -- ASK FOR SIMON! Our story: I was looking to purchase a dependable and affordable used Toyota Highlander and discovered that Auto Connections had two available models on their lot. One was a 2004 Limited Edition with lots of bells and whistles (heated leather seats, sunroof, you name it) and the other was a basic 2006 Highlander. There were some pros and cons to each vehicle so my friend and I went there with an open mind. At first, despite the extra cost, I was leaning a bit towards the 2004 Limited (because who doesn't love a built in fancy schmancy navigation system amiright?) that is until I tried to lower one of the backseat windows ... and nothing happened. Apparently the sales people at Auto Connections own their inventory so whomever you may contact about test driving a vehicle you like will also definitely be the person whom you must purchase said vehicle from as well. Jason (the salesman for the 2004 Highlander Limited) failed to mention to me that he knew before I made an appointment with him, and then drove an hour over to see the vehicle, that the window had a problem. Unfortunately he was also ultimately unwillingly to allow my mechanic to check over the vehicle as well. Big red flags going off for me at this point. The clincher came when instead he repeatedly stated he had other people scheduled to view it despite the fact I stated point blank if his vehicle passed my mechanic's inspection, and Jason would have the window fixed, I would be willing to purchase it for the price we'd previously agreed upon that same day. I arrived very excited to hand over a check for my dream car but soon realized that there wasn't enough bells and whistles in the world to make me purchase a vehicle without having my mechanic assure me it was a worthwhile buy, especially after it already obviously had a few problems/cost a couple thousand dollars more/was an older model, and I was repeatedly brushed off. Fortunately, for me, Jason kept reiterating that while he was busy I should check out the other Highlander which belonged to a salesman, Simon. Simon was AMAZING! Simon not only brought out the vehicle before I asked he also immediately provided the documentation for the maintenance that had been performed on it (two things that definitely did not happened with the 2004 Highlander). Simon also made it very clear that I could drive it off the lot that very minute to have it inspected by my mechanic and even recommended that my friend and I take both vehicles to get them checked before making a choice. He was very astute when he stated "a sunroof is great but not going to do a lot of good if you're broken down on the side of the road." I asked him what time I needed to be back, since Jason erroneously stated that they closed at 6pm, and was delighted when Simon said he'd stay there until we were able to make it back from our test drive. Needless to say my mechanic was AMAZED at how much work had been put into the vehicle, it passed his inspection with flying colors! The cherry on top is I also have a great warranty package guaranteed by Simon as well. Long story short Simon not only left me feeling better about my purchase by offering me a fair price for the Highlander he also bent over backward, so to speak, to make sure that I was comfortable with my choice and I was able to drive off the lot that afternoon with a wonderful dependable vehicle. After seeing such a glaring contrast in salesmanship, honesty and good humor I'm hoping Simon is around for plenty of years to come because I don't plan on buying anything on four wheels from anyone but him. I know everyone had bad days so maybe that's all it was for Jason but needless to say I'm recommending Simon to everyone I know and I hope if you have a bad customer service experience at Auto Connections that you give them another chance by giving Simon a call too!
