Great Dealer!

Dave's is a great dealership for a used car or truck. Both Dave and Don were very helpful! Also very patient! I will shop at Dave's again!



Was told the car that I was interested in was in perfect condition. Don't believe them in 2 months I've had to make 3 repairs! SHADY!

Dealer response

Roger, I do not know what car you bought but I can guarantee you that you were not told it was in perfect condition. We have never heard from you about what your problems were.


Reasonably priced vehicle

Would definitely purchase another vehicle from Dave and family I am very happy with my 1996 ford f150 it was everything he said it was and more I love the truck Have had no problems with vehicle at all Thank You

Dealer response

Brian, thank you for the kind words. Hope to see you again.


My car shopping experience

I called Don after driving past the lot on a Sunday. He was honest, quick to help and down to earth. I immediately felt like he understood what I need, was compassionate and really went out of his way to help despite the fact I called close to closing time. He worked hard to get me the vehicle our family needed and could afford. It was the fastest most hassle free car buying experience I've ever had.

Dealer response

Thank you so much Ellen. You were great to work with. Hope to see you in the future. Good luck. Don


Bought used truck

Was looking for a used truck and ended up buying an S10 4X4 from Dave's. Overall the experience was nice (although a bit long to complete the paperwork) and drove the truck home (had 1/2 tank when we drove it off the lot). On the way home, the Service Engine Light (SEL) came on and pulled the code(s) when I got home as I have an OBD2 reader. Turns out O2 sensor was bad (fairly common and easy/cheap to replace) so I didn't make a big deal about it. However, next day I filled up the tank and ended up dumping around 5 gallons of gas on the gas station from a leak in the tank. Called Dave and negotiated how much he'd pay towards the repair (we agreed on 50/50. Had it towed to local Chevy dealer and quote was around $1,500. Provided Dave with copy of quote and without hesitation, he cut me a check. Stand up place

Dealer response

Thank you Ken, Sorry for the problem but glad we could work together to resolve it.


Easy experience. No pressure.

The dealership provided accurate information about the 2004 Mazda MPV I was interested in before I made a 200 mile trip there to inspect the vehicle. Dan was the salesman. He made it easy for me to inspect the van, to take it to an independent mechanic, and to negotiate the price after. I felt no pressure and no hassle. The physical facility is basic--just a double-wide mobile home on property. The vehicle inventory is pretty crowded together making it difficult to navigate a vehicle through the lot. But this place is not about fancy bells and whistles. Just a good spot to get a good value on a used vehicle without a lot of pressure.

Dealer response

Karl, I hope your new van has worked out for you. Don



I found a Silverado at "Daves " to which I was hoping to trade my Tundra in on . We were able to put a deal together that seemed very fair . Don Armstrong Jr helped me through the deal and actually dealt with Dave some . very nice people here and felt like a honest deal.


Caring staff!

Great experience with Dave's. The staff is very friendly. The inventory is well maintained with low miles and great prices. They take the time to make sure you get what is going to be right for you.

Dealer response

I'm so happy that you feel you were treated fairly. Thanks again. Don


Nice People to work with

I had a very positive buying experience at Dave's. Don was very helpful with finding me financing and the whole process has gone smoothly. Thank you Don!

Dealer response

Thank you Margi. Hope you are enjoying your new car and will be back to see me. Don
