    Smooth purchase
    April 2, 2018

    Everyone at Knauz was very helpful. When we went to pick up the car we were in and out quickly. Longest part was learning about all the bells and whis...tles from the MINI genius. Which of course was the fun part.

    Wonderful Experience at Knauz
    April 1, 2018

    I went into Knauz looking to buy a new Mercedes. I met with Peter P. and explained to him exactly what I wanted. He searched high and low until he fou...nd exactly what I was looking for. Hans, Peter and I were able to come to an agreement, which I was very happy with. After purchasing the car, Daniel F. and Strah G. took the time to show me how to work all of the high-tech features. I had a great experience at Knauz and would highly recommend them to everyone. Thanks again! -Caryn
