    I was very pleased with my service. The staff was very friendly. I was allowed to have the car I was considering to be brought to a mechanic for inspection.... They arranged for the state to send me my title and they also arranged to have my license plate sent to me. They told me that they would put the plate on for me if I brought the car in.

    We bought a 2017 Chevy Volt after almost a year of communication with your salesman, Brett Banaszewski. He was very patient with us and we let several... opportunities pass us by before we made our purchase. He was clear and accurate about all the characteristics of our used car and the various warranties, etc. He went out of his way to help us find a hard copy of the Owner's Manual. He also volunteered to ask your mechanics for a recommendation for a Duluth Chevy dealer to service our car, since our local Ashland dealer has no one certified to work on hybrid plug-ins. Good work helping us move into the new car future which we should all be considering with the dire freight train of climate change barreling down upon us. Keep buying and pushing those electric cars. We now have solar panels and are working for public charging stations in our area. Had a hard time not jumping right into a Chevy Bolt or Nissan Leaf, but coming from deep rural we felt it was still prudent to buy a hybrid. Thank you. You and Brett can count on our recommendation to others. Linda Jorgenson and Jack Gunderson

    Let me start by saying I rarely write reviews. I was referred by a friend for my first vehicle I purchased at Poquet and this is my second vehicle I have... purchased at Poquet. Both experiences were hassle free, efficient, courteous, professional and by far the best price. I must expound on my second experience as I informed Brett what I was looking for and he continued to update me monthly until he finally found the exact car I was looking for. What also cemented it was that even the owner, Colin called me a few times checking to see if I was still interested and that they would continue to look for the exact vehicle I wanted. In the interim, I referred a friend and he purchased a car there and Poquet send me a gift card. You won't find an easier buying experience, a lower price or a friendlier staff. I highly recommend Poquet Auto. Thank you to all the staff at Poquet.

    I am very happy with my car buying experience at Poquet. Everyone I encountered there was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. All of... the employees seemed keenly interested in my satisfaction. Brett Banaszewski is a wonderful sales person. He was so supportive and reassuring during the entire purchasing process. I truly feel that I can contact him with any questions or concerns regarding my 2017 Toyota Corolla. I will definitely recommend Brett and Poquet Auto to my family and friends. Thank you, Poquet, for a positive car buying experience!
