This was the best experience I've had buying a car. Everyone I encountered was helpful and professional. They were knowledgeable about the entire process which made it go quickly. The best part is that there were no games! They were honest and upfront about everything.
Good vehicle so far despite the bad press.

My 2015 NV200 SV is my work van. I added a ladder rack with two ladders and a step ladder which had a big effect of the fuel economy (from about 25 mpg to 20 mpg). The paint and body panels are easily damaged so I strongly recommend adding a bra or 3M transparent film. Inside plastic is easily scratched. The seats are comfortable and the driver sits higher than the average mini van so visibility is better. The tires that Nissan puts on this van will wear out quickly so this van has the unfair reputation of going through tires fast which is not true. I replaced the cheap Goodyear Eagle Cargo Tires with Nokian WGR All Weather tires and the wear is normal after over 24,000 miles (Looks like they're good for at least another 24,000 miles). I noticed much better performance in snow and ice conditions after that. Cab heater is inadequate for cold weather regions and you have to keep it in "recirculation" below -10 to -15 degrees celcius. AC works OK in temperatures over 25 degrees Celsius. Parking is very easy in tight situations. Acceleration and handling are adequate but not fantastic (that's good enough for work). GPS Navigation is adequate but not super accurate. Engine and CV transmission still working well but wheels seem to need realignment at almost every service rotation. Only real problem I've had with this van were the power door lock actuators in weather below -1 degree Celsius. Dealer found that they were not adjusted properly and finally fixed it after three visits.
Toby was great! He delivered the vehicle 60 miles from the dealership and treated my whole family to dinner. The car is spotless. He was very honest and upfront about the history of the car and promptly answered any questions we had. The paperwork was fast and easy. He took care of everything! I feel no need to search other lots for future needs.
EXCELLENT CONDITION. THIS IS A GOOD TRAVELING VAN

THIS VAN IS A GOOD TRAVELING VEHICLE AND FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL USAGE. COULD TRAVEL OUT OF TOWN AND EVEN IN TOWN. ITS FOR YOUR OWN USAGE.
Toby was a pleasure to work with; he and the rest of your staff made my purchase of the 19 model Pacifica a hassle-free experience. SUPER JOB to everyone.

This car has been everything! I wanted a vehicle I could feel safe in and would get me where ever I needed with out a problem. It has all wheel drive which is great in the state I live in. It has plenty of room and it’s very sleek inside. I’m so happy I made this purchase.
No hassle buying but the sales person really did not know the product. They did stay open late for us to make the sale. But, the sales person must know their product.
This is my first off road vechile.

Previous to my 2017 Rubicon I owned a 2010 Liberty. It was good off road but the Rubicon takes off road experience to a new level. This is a sophisticated machine. I am not a rock hopper so I don't see myself spending money on lift kits. I can tell you that I will spend a lot of time taking moderate trails and climbing so testy hills through out Southern New Mexico.
Jordan Wendal did a great job. He was very knowledgeable. He took time to explain all the details of the electronics of the car. He showed me the self-parking feature and then had me try it so that I would be comfortable with the proceedure. He had the car delivered to me out of state.
Better (2017) than Honda CRV (2015)
by Tg1625 from South Bend IN

Bought a 2017 LT Equinox AWD in 2019
1) Quieter than CRV (5)
2) Braking is smoother than CRV (5)
3) Engines about equivalent (4)
4) Anti-lock brake on snow/ice condition better than CRV (5)
5) Mylink does not allow installing Carplay - worse than CRV (3) - have to rely on my wife's i-phone on a trip. I will give CRV a (4)
6) Back seat cannot recline - CRV reclines by ~2 inches (3) - only if I have to sit in the back
7) Reliability - TBD (CRV's battery died after 3.5 yrs)
8) Value: I paid ~$27 K in 2015 for a new CRV with AWD and ~$16K for this used Equinox (7400 miles) almost like new. I have been impressed except for the Carplay availability.
Sales staff was friendly and fair. Did exactly what I asked when ordering a new truck and made it a painless experience. They continued to be helpful after the sale.

this vehicle took time to get use to since all i ever had was cars but i do like it it has decent room good leg room love the child safety locks itbut other than that i like it alots great for that alone everything works only thing i would like is a little more space in the back
Actually, I connected with Bud's because I saw they were selling a truck that fit my needs through CarGurus. I live 1.5 hours away from the dealership. The experience was great from start to finish. Jordan Wendell, the salesperson, was knowledgeable, friendly but not overbearing, and made sure all of my questions were answered. Even being 1.5 miles from my home, I'd consider buying from Bud's again.
Bought to use as a plow truck.

So far so good. A few issues with some warning lights but I have them all off except the airbag light. Just came on randomly.
employees were friendly and professional, enjoyed interacting with them to purchase my jeep wrangler unlimited. All my questions about the wrangler were answered , showing their knowledge about the product. I am very happy with my experience at Buds Dealership in Celina.
Worst van I have ever known of... (I bought 2)
by JonesXRay from Fort Worth, Texas
January 10, 2019
The absolute worst vehicles I have ever operated and owned in my 40-year old business. I purchased 2 of these in 2016 and retired them both for trade-in in December 2018 with 70k miles on each van. We had many, many break down during the 60k mile warranty. In the final 10k miles driven I spent $10,000 dollars keeping them on the road... My mechanic told me to trade in these garbage trucks and cut my losses. This was some of the best advice (I already knew) I have ever gotten... Run away from these vans that are built in TURKEY!!!
Sales Representative was very knowable about the vehicle I purchased. He had a professional appearance and was very attenative during the sales cycle. He was very organized and and no mistakes were made in the purchase.
2017 Ram Powerwagon w/ Ram Box

This truck is amazing, drives very well, handles great for a big truck, and has all the little features i care for. ONLY reason my overall is not 5 stars is because it is a gas guzzler. Driving extremely slow is the only way i could average over 12mpg. Besides that, i love this truck, and i have purchased the Mopar Lifetime Care since i plan on keeping it a LONG time.
I have bought four cars through this dealership, and they have always done a great job from the beginning to the end. Drive through their lot and check out the huge selection of inventory! Ask for Jim Hendricks, for a great deal!!
Very comfortable car and luxurious!

We just purchased this car and really love it. Comfort, style and classy! I would recommend this car to anyone. A little pricey but seems worth the money.
I have purchased vehicles and have had them serviced with katterheinrich. They come to my work and pickup my vehicles. So I don't need to miss any work. They have great prices and are always happy to see me.
Most reliable car I’ve owned
by Scrowley from Columbus Ohio

I drive the car to work and home only. It has never given me any trouble. All mechanical records were kept by Jeff Wyler of Columbus in Canal Winchester Ohio.
Way better experience than the last few vehicles that I bought from other new car stores. They actually sold the truck for what they had advertised! Nothing added on at the end of the deal, no pressure on the purchase of the truck, and a fair price for my trade first time around. Very happy with this place, I will be buying my next vehicle from them!

Funn to drive this car and reliable. Really enjoyed and great radio system.Also love the interior design.You can also fill the power of the engine.
This is the first truck i have ever owned and it is a great all around truck. It is very reliable and has never left me stranded. although it is not a 4x4 the towing is still excellent. Ram did a great job with this one.
Sold it at 21,000miles and 5 yrs old.SRT model. Green with envy color scheme. $51,000. Bought new. Spent way too much time at the dealership chasing multiple electrical problems that never got Fixed. Stereo lacking quality sound. Touch screen sad. Traded for a new Mazda- a very reliable car !
Jon Cox was very helpful in guiding us to our new purchase. He understood our needs and has great customer service skills. He understood the product features very well.
Have truly enjoyed driving this SUV.
