    We have done business with John for at least 25 years after being referred by another family member. We have referred numerous others to him as well. He... is wonderful to work with and very friendly, fair, thorough and certainly respected in the community as a business and most importantly as a person of high standards. He is very selective about the cars he puts on the lot and will do his very best to meet the customer's needs.

    We were looking for a Ford Edge and once again John Backhuus came through with flying colors! This makes vehicle #15 that our family has purchased from... John, and they have all been wonderful. We have purchased a few of them right from his lot, but in some cases, like this one, we spoke with John about the type of vehicle we were interested in, what features we wanted on it, and a price range, and within a relatively short time he was able to find exactly what we wanted, right down to our desired color! John also gives your trade in a really reasonable value instead of the insultingly low offers dealerships have always offered us. We will continue to go to John for quality preowned vehicles at reasonable costs and with completely hassle free transactions. His business is a gold mine right in our home town!

    Been going here for 30 yrs - best place around for a used vehicle. Have purchased several cars without even test driving them. Top notch place!

    I asked my mechanic at Roys Auto Repair for advice on buying a reliable car and they said if I was ok buying from a dealer that John at Backhuus (Howell,... MI) would take excellent care of me. And he did all the way around. From communicating asap to friendly service to finding exactly what I wanted (and not trying to sell something I didnt want) John earned an A in my book. I'm 51 and been around. What really sets Backhuus above the rest is that he wont let you drive home in something crappy. He's going to make sure Roys fixes it right where some dealers dont care if your new to you car has issues. No doubt I'm buying all my cars from John now.

    Mr. Backhuus was very kind and knowledgeable about the vehicle we bought from him. We got a fair price and even traded in our old vehicle. So easy to work... with and very nice. We loved doing business from someone like his company in our hometown.

    From start to finish John made the buying process super easy! We never felt pressured into buying anything even though we made more then one trip to the... dealership. John answered all of our questions and made a point to treat us like people and not just a sale. We definitely recommend him and will probably use him ourselves again in the future.

    Just brought another Backhuus Auto car home. We drive 160 miles across the state because of the quality cars John always has. This will not be our last... car from there. They make the experience very easy.
