Nice first experience

5 5 5 5 5 4.8 (1778 reviews)
I moved to Iowa and discovered that the only Infiniti dealership would be in Des Moines, about 120 miles from home. I contacted them to have my car serviced (scheduled maintenance) and they offered to pick-up the car at home and drop off a loaner. It takes a little bit more time than just walking in for service (one day for travel each way, plus the service), but it is a VERY good perk, as it is convenient and do not cost anything. All people that I dealt with were nice and everything went as expected. The only small downside is that the loaner is far from the same level from my car. However, this is something you can live with, considering the benefits.

Love my 2018 Kia Optima SXL

I LOVE my 2018 Kia Optima SXL. Car is fully loaded. 360 degree camera, Nappa Quilted leather, led exterior AND interior lights, pano sunroof, rear USB ports, front AND rear heated seats, front cooled seats, rear sun shades, and etc. Brought the car used from a reputable dealer in Ohio, got a GREAT deal, saving thousands! Test drove a few of its competitors ( Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, Chevy Malibu) . This car wasn’t even on my list. I am so HAPPY HAPPY , oh did I say HAPPY with my first new car purchase...and my family and coworkers are. My recommendation... if you’re looking for a mid size car, test drive on of these! Thanks Kia for making a Stylish, spacious, sexy, sporty, and safe car ( the 5 S’s)!!!!!

2019 Kia Optima LX Review
Every feature you could want at great price
by HyperNeon from Springfield, Va
May 16, 2019

This car has EVERYTHING! I purchased the EX with the Premium package and there's not really much more I could even think of putting into a car... maybe massaging front seats? That's really it. I bought this car primarily for commuting in and out of the city and I don't even mind sitting in traffic anymore. I just slide open the sunroof, turn up the music, pop on the ventilated front seats, and take my foot off the gas while the stop and go cruise control deals with the congestion. The only gripe I really have with the car is that it's slow to accelerate from a stop. The engine doesn't lack for power, but when you really need to make that turn before the next wave of vehicles blocks your path, there is about a 1 second delay after you slam on the gas before the vehicle will launch. Could definitely lead to an accident if you're not expecting that delay. Otherwise the drive is smooth and it accelerates quickly afterwards. 100% recommend this car to any budget conscious techy.

New bumper cover, windshield

Needed new bumper cover, windshield on my 2004 MINI. Made appointment at a convenient time, car was done a couple of days later. Work is well done - no wind whistles from the new windshield, seams at bumper cover line up perfectly and color is so close to perfect match for 13-year-old paint you can't tell it's newer. Price charged was reasonable.

We used them for a car collision repair. Not only was their job of a great quality but they helped us coordinate everything with the insurance company including arranging for car rental pickup and drop off at their office. They called us with weekly updates as necessary. It was the most painless major car repair process I have ever been through. Thank you to Willis Auto for their excellent customer service and willingness to help.

Reliable car to own, but passenger SEAT SIT TO LO

The OPTIMA 2015 was a good car to own for me. The look and color was right, driving the car felt sexy with speed, I saved a lot of money on gas. BUT, the passenger seat was too low. NEEDED the SEAT Lumbar support and Seat Cushion Height. OVERALL NICE CAR TO HAVE. PS The maintenance plan was Affordable

Great service experience at Mini of Des Moines

Upon noticing drops of radiator fluid on our garage floor, we scheduled our Mini Cooper for service at Mini of Des Moines. We were able to bring the car in on the next day, prompt service. Upon assessing the repairs, the service ambassador explained the leak was due to the water pump. He further explained this repair was covered 100% under warranty, no cost to us. The car was ready for pickup the same day. Very prompt, professional service. We will bring our car back to Mini of Des Moines for future servicing needs.

Honda of Ames Review
Best Honda service dept/most thoughtful employees
by Jean from Grimes, IA

Even though I was just in for an oil change I was simply curious to see the changes in the 2018 CRV's (mine is a 2015 and I love it). The sales person, Steve, took time to show me a new CRV and thoroughly answered my many questions (and I have many detailed questions!). If the opportunity arises that I need or want a new car I will certainly ask for this salesman. He wasn't pushy and didn't act like I was 'wasting' his time which I really appreciate. Mel and Josh are great in the service department. Even though I am a senior I don't feel 'invisible' when I come in for service (unlike MANY other businesses!) All the guys in the service dept. have been right there when you drive in whether to change wiper blades or to answer a question. The 'overall inspection' this time showed I will need new tires next spring or summer. Thanks to Josh mentioning it, this won't be a 'surprise' next year. Two thumbs up to the whole dealership! Sadly I didn't buy my current car from this dealership, but I will NOT go back to the original place due to the difference in atmosphere/respect/quality of the personnel at Honda of Ames.

Wilson Toyota of Ames Review
Quality service

We just purchased our second new Toyota vehicle from Wilson Toyota in Ames. We purchased a Toyota Venza in 2013. That purchase experience went smoothly, and we have been very satisfied with the car. Wilson Toyota has handled all service for our Venza, and we have been highly satisfied with their customer service. Our positive experience brought us back to Wilson Toyota for our most recent purchase of a 2018 Highlander Hybrid. We spent a considerable amount of time with our sales rep, Jacob Harmelink, exploring vehicle features of both the RAV4 and the Highlander before settling on the Highlander Hybrid. Because Wilson Toyota didn't have a vehicle on the lot that had the specific features we preferred, Jacob arranged to get our vehicle from another dealer. In the end, we got the vehicle we wanted. Finalizing the purchase went very smoothly. Thus, we've had another positive purchase experience with Wilson Toyota.

My purchasing experience was great. I called Bryan a few days before I came asking about a specific pickup. He answered all of my questions and sent me the auto check report by email. I called the morning I went to the dealership to confirm the truck was still there and it was. The other salesperson informed me that he had it washed and pulled inside ready for me to take a test drive. We had a four hour drive that was well worth it. When we arrived were were greeted and shown the vehicle. Bryan grabbed the dealer plates and we were off on a test drive. There was no pressure and we came home with a great pickup. Thanks for the great experience.

Allie was professional and friendly. I didn???t see Dave Merchant anywhere so I hope he???s OK. I was very glad to see dark roast K-cups added to your selection. I did receive a car wash code but when I drove around to the car wash both bays were blocked with orange cones. When I called from my car, the young man who answered didn???t seem to understand what I was trying to tell him. I don???t know if the car wash was broken or what but he did not seem at all interested in helping me find out. And for what it???s worth, discontinuing the Scion xB was the biggest mistake Toyota ever made. I love my Scion!😍
