These guys are the best in the business! Im a single woman who never gets pushed around here. My last 2 cars habe come from Scott Doc Dannit. I will never go anywhere else. He and the finance team did thier best to get me into the right car each time. I never felt pressured. Ypu become family when you purchase cars from Richardsons!!!
Easy to Drive

The V6 provides plenty of power still averaging 18mpg in the city. The auto idle shutdown takes a little getting used to at stoplights and I have had to watch my head getting in and out due to the angle on the A pillar, but drives great, real smooth and responsive.
Tom Sladky at Richardson’s is an excellent salesperson. Finance office is also very professional and efficient. Would recommend Richardson’s and Tom Sladky to anyone. Richardson’s is first class!
Great van for an affordable price!!!

Super reliable! It has been parked outside in Indiana for the past five years through boiling summers and freezing winters. It has only failed to start one time and that was because I needed a new battery. It has tons of pickup. So much I feel like I can beat a corvette when the light turns green! Easy to drive and comfortable enough for my family. We got a basic model to save $, but it is well designed. I've driven it to work since we bought it new both long (1 hour) and short (10 minute) commutes. We have also take it on 5 vacations over 700 miles one way. If I ever buy another van, I will get another Sedona because of the great experience with this one. The only thing I've had trouble with is associated with winter outside parking. When I pull on the door, not knowing that it is frozen shut, it may slightly jar enough to for the door sensor to think the door is open. After climbing in through the passenger door, which never freezes because it is next to the house, we have to drive five or ten minutes until the car warms up with the ding ding ding of the door-open alert on. That is so annoying, but a fellow outside parker told me to reach in the passenger side first, start the car and go back inside for 10 minutes before trying to open the potentially previously frozen driver door. Lol. What a genius!
Had a less than stellar experience the first time we stopped in. The salesman was okay during our first test drive. He seemed upset when we wanted to think about it, and when I emailed back stating we were going to look at more expensive vehicles, we never heard from him again. Common sense would to offer us iget vehicles to look at. A couple months later we're stopped back in and met with Chad (Vern). He took us for test drives in the vehicles we inquired about and also gave us other options we hadn't thought about. The whole team was able to bring the price down to where we were comfortable (with trade-in). We had to stop in a couple different times for different things, ...and Chad was very accommodating- even offering to come in on his day off. A brake light was out and were stopped in and out was fixed (no questions asked) in about 10 minutes. Our 2nd experience more than made up for our first! We will definitely be back when it's time to trade- in our next vehicle!
Lots of compliments

Had a good experience at Lux Auto and Billy Mish as the salesman Having a good amount of knowledge on every vehicle we looked at. No pressure, friendly, courteous, and did whatever it took to please the customer. I got a little more truck than what I needed but the deal was in my price range and I really liked what I saw and the few extras that made the sale final. I'm enjoying it alot and will deal with him in the future. Thanks Bill and good luck.
I had excellent service and help at Richardson. Chris Cruse, the salesperson with whom I worked, was knowledgeable, intelligent, fun and extremely nice. I will return to Richardson and ask for Chris again the next time I want to buy a car. Dennis, the manager, was also outstanding. He was/is helpful and no nonsense.
The most fun to drive crossover I could find.

I purchased this car over a year ago as a certified dealer demo. I had been driving Subarus and other SUV's. The Subarus have uncomfortable seats. The CX-9 has very comfortable seats, great driving dynamics. Plenty of power with the turbo and the most quiet car I have owned. It is also a beautiful design especially in Soul red.
They were able to provide me a detailed report of the history of the vehicle as it had been serviced there throughout its previous life. All questions I had were answered before I even arrived at the facility. The vehicle had all of the bells and whistles and worked flawlessly. The windshield was cracked and that was pointed out to me (even though I honestly didn't even notice it) prior to purchase. Very competitive pricing, even in comparison with much larger dealers in Des Moines.
A Wonderful Car to own

In Sept 2018 I was looking for a SUV and the Chevy Equinox met all my requirements. I purchased it for a fair price and it's January 2019 and 35,000 miles later I am still happy with my Equinox. I have had no issues except with the Michelin tires having to be replaced at 24,000 miles. Michelin pro-rated the tires and a new set cost me $400.00 plus tax and mounting/balance. I am very satisfied with my Equinox.
AS ALWAYS, Cindy in the Brown's service dept goes above and beyond to set up my vehicle repairs in a timely manner and stay within her estimates, and sending me home with a courtesy vehicle. I totally trust the Brown's service dept and am very happy with the quality of the repairs!
Most reliable SUV I've owned

Three years owned it and aside from oil changes, no money was stuck into it. Liked it so much, we decided to lease a 2019 Cherokee. In the past owned 2 Lexus, Chevy SUV's and the Jeep was ahead of them. EXCEPT for the leg room in the back seat.
As always treated well by Wade the Sales Manger , and Wes the sales man , have bought cars there before and will keep going back. Always
Best car I have owned. Zero Issues ever
by Sandman from New Orleans, LA
December 30, 2018
This was by far the best car I have driven. Between the performance, and comfort I could not have been happier. Never had a single issue with this car. Only resin for selling was because I needed a recreational vehicle.
I drove down from Northern Minnesota to pick up a 2014 Dodge Charger from the lot. I was in-and-out in about 30 minutes. The process was fabulous and everyone in the facility showed professionalism, were helpful, and answered every question I asked. It was a beautiful ride down and the buying experience was painless. Just how you want your car buying experience to be. Oh yeah, I love the car! Well worth the trip!
The Truck we were looking For.
by Fishingfan from Greeneville, TN

Looking for a specific truck, color, style and accessories. found everything we wanted in the F250 Lariat complete with all necessary accessories, engine and towing capabilities.
My husband and I have only had contact/business with the service department at the Elkader location and we would highly recommend them. Very wonderful to work with and we will continue to take our vehicles there in the future as we have for the past 2 years.
Best Truck made
by TRAMhoman from Arizona
January 12, 2019
I purchased new a 2016 Ram 2500 with the appearance package in the Laramie trim. I bought at 4th of July when there was a total of 15k rebates. I paid 57k for a 72k list vehicle. It is equipped with the legendary Cummins motor
This truck is like driving your couch down the road. I have not even come close to really taxing it’s capabilities. I have only towed up to approximately 15k with a 32ft V nose. I made a trip from WA-AZ-WA it pulled like a dream. I won’t say it did not notice the trailer but the only difference I noted was just an increase boost pressure while towing. I did average 15mpg and this truck is stock. No loss in performance and while towing holding 75 up the grades was no issue. Also I can not even begin to explain how amazing the exhaust brake performed. I don’t think I even used my brakes on down grades except for when other vehicles cut in front of me. There is no better truck made in my opinion. To be fair I was bitten twice by Ford on the 6.0 and then on the 6.4. I was not about to be a guini pig again on the 6.7. I will say this truck is better in every way than the previous trucks
As always, another wonderful stress free experience at Brown's in Elkader. The salesman/staff were very accommodating. The vehicle I was interested in was at another dealership so they had it driven almost 2 hours to the Elkader location just so I could test drive it, that same day. The salesman was very knowledgeable of the vehicles history and specs, even though they had just received it and they stayed an hour past closing time to close the deal and send me home in my new Truck. Got the vehicle I wanted, at the price I wanted with friendly service and a free tank of gas to boot.
Best Vehicle I've Owned

This truck was my dream of owning when I retired. My dream came true in Feb 2017. I retired from civil service May 2016 after working 38 yrs. I got my 2017 Silverado LTZ. I enjoy driving it and feel so comfortable even in my short height (4'11"). It is very dependable and very truck looking in shiny black. I an still receiving compliments on how the truck looks brand new.
Always exceptional service from the Brown's service dept! Cindy is the best when it comes to setting up the appointment and working around my schedule.... I wouldn't go anywhere else. They always go above and beyond for me no matter what I need. Brown's Sales and Leasing is awesome! Thank you!

We had been looking for over a year for just the right truck for retirement and this more than fit our needs. We are very happy with our purchase.
I worked with Wes, he was great to work with. Great experience and very hassle free. Would recommend to anyone. If I had to add a negative then it would be that they have limited inventory in Elkader and the vehicle I wanted to test drive could not be delivered to Elkader for me to drive.

Nice crossover vehicle

I like this truck a lot...the ride is excellent, and it handles like a dream...i wish it would accelerate a little faster, and it slides quite a bit in slippery snow conditions...it gets through deep snow great though...overall its an awesome choice...great family vehicle
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.
Well styled car. Not big in pick up and noisy interior. Would much rather see this vehicle offer as a 6 vs. only a 4 cylinder.
