    Make sure the vehicle you are purchasing from this dealership has the details they described the car as having online. We purchased a vehicle advertised... as having 3.73 gears to find out 1 month later it has 3.31 gears. Their website clearly stated 3.73 and still does. Don’t be fooled

    I bought a 2016 used vehicle in a matter of hours. They gave me a great trade in, a great finance rate and a great deal on the vehicle.

    Erika was so personable, wonderful, and knowledgeable in answering any questions I had in regards to my new car in email/texts the few days before I came... down from Minnesota to pick my car up! Also, both Jeff and Austin were really great in going over everything I needed to know in regards to my new Ford Taurus before I left the dealership!

    All of our questions were answered. Since we live about 2 hours away, we were able to have the price and paperwork done over the phone and internet so... that when we arrived the process went very quickly.

    Fast, straight forward... The sales rep texted, emailed and called which cut a lot of time down being in the dealership. It was wonderful!

    Quick and easy. Not a lot of standing around waiting for different departments to get on the same page. We were working with service and rentals. Drop... off and pick up was seamless.
