Outstanding customer service

Easiest car experience I have ever had. Super friendly with absolutely no pressure. So happy with the purchase! Great customer service and had us out the door in less than 30 minutes!


Amazing service - great prices - nice people

It is challenging to find an auto repair shop that is reasonably priced and trustworthy. This place is it. I highly recommend using them for body shop repairs, car repairs, and all related services. Thank you for the great service!


Great experience!!

I just bought a Honda crv from them and was a easy process. Rob did all of the paperwork, the car is in great shape, and it was not a pressure situation like you hear from other dealers. They will get a thumbs up from me!


Wonderful people and a wonderful experience

My wife and I found a vehicle that we felt like we had looked everywhere for. Great experience and rob was so helpful and very kind. He went above and beyond for us. Definitely would recommend them to anyone. We are so happy and thankful for our purchase! Thank you karns motor company!


Very good dealership

Everyone there was super friendly, purchased a good used car at a very fair price. Rob was great to work with and we were happy with the purchase.


Incredible Service. Incredible Cars. Great Prices.

Rob and the team at Karns Motor Company were entirely and thoroughly excellent in the vehicle they sold us, the service they provided, and the process we experienced. He demonstrated both integrity and service in the way that he dealt with us from the time that we first considered the vehicle all the way through to its purchase. Rob was prompt in all of his communication with us, and he went above and beyond to insure that we were absolutely satisfied. He is a rare find in today's world of used car sales, and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a great, reliable used vehicle in excellent condition that will serve your needs.


You've got a customer for life!

A friend of mine recommended Karns Motor Company and I can see why! These guys did some repairs on my '68 VW and now it runs better than ever! From the first interaction, they had my full confidence - they are knowledgeable, courteous, and truly go above and beyond when it comes to communication and customer service. You can add my name to the list of very satisfied customers! Karns Motor Company will be my first phone call for maintenance and repairs.


Project manager

Honest and trust worthy people. Great selection. Will work hard to find and match Your needs. It was just fun, going through the whole process.


Rob and Brian are just the best in their business!

At the age of 82, I'm not one to take too many risks with my money. Rob was highly recommended to me by my son and he is what everyone should have when searching for the right vehicle. He listened to me, found me my best option within my budget, and even went beyond my expectations to find me the best SUV for me. He is one of a kind and certainly is just a fine person in the automobile business. I certainly recommend Rob and Brian to anyone looking to buy any quality car or truck in the East TN area. They are a rare find in their business!
