Horrible experience with this company. I bought a 2013 BMW X3 with 63,000 miles. After adding 5,000 miles to the car the transmission went out. Bought the X3 in mid November, but was only able to drive it till mid June. When I called the sales man to address the issue he was unsupportive.

I went to the dealership in stress because I know how challenging buying a car can be. After I test drove the car Mark said he would be willing to answer any questions I had and get me going. Mark's customer service was outstanding, I have never had such an understanding and caring salesperson. He got everything taken care of and in the end I was walking out with my new 2014 Toyota Corolla! Thank you Mark for your excellent service!

My daughter Erin bought a GMC Terrain and was very happy with the service. The staff was knowledgeable and proficient. My husband Al had the same experience. We will be coming back to Auto Kingdom the next time we need a car

Overall Experience
My husband and I had visited a number of larger-name dealerships when I decided I wanted to downsize from my suburban. The process was dreadful. I never felt the salesmen were truly listening to what I wanted and instead pushed vehicles that were far out of our price range. The worst was when the salesmen wanted to ride with my family of four on test drives. It was awkward and terribly uncomfortable for everyone. My husband had checked out Auto Kingdom after work one day and encouraged me to visit as well, but I was worried to go alone. I didn't want to deal with, yet another, pushy salesman.

When we arrived at Auto Kingdom, we were greeted by Darrell who asked what we were interested in. He pointed out a few vehicles and then encouraged us to look around and test drive as many as we wanted. There wasn't any pushing of certain vehicles; he truly wanted us to find a vehicle that we were going to enjoy. That day, my husband and I drove at least seven or eight vehicles from the lot. The best part, Darrell told us he didn't want to ride with us. He wanted us to go and talk about the car, drive the car how we would normally drive it, and really see how it felt to us. Considering how uncomfortable I had been at every other dealership, this was a completely different experience. There was no pressure to buy and I appreciated Darrell's knowledge and honesty about each vehicle we were interested in.

I left that day with my heart set on a certain car. Because my husband and I weren't sure if we were going to trade in my Suburban or sell it privately, I wasn't sure we should go through with the purchase of a new car that day. Darrell reassured me he would not sell the car until my husband and I had time to make a decision regarding my truck. Let me stress how much of a relief it was to NOT have a salesman breathing down my neck pushing the sale of a vehicle. A couple days later, I was back at Auto Kingdom ready to purchase the car. The guys let me take it out for another drive, and then we met in Darrell's office to sign papers. Darrell explained everything thoroughly and was patient to answer all of our questions and provide clarity as needed.

I left Auto Kingdom wishing I hadn't wasted so much time looking at other dealerships and lots. Darrell made the car buying experience enjoyable for me, which is incredible considering how much anxiety I had felt at every other dealership. The next time my husband and I are in need of a new vehicle, we will be heading straight to Auto Kingdom. I don't think I would ever consider buying a vehicle anywhere else after the experience we had. These guys are all about their customers and they are amazing to work with.

I had an excellent buying experience here. The price was extremely competitive and Mark Larson was a pleasure to deal with. As an added bonus, he's a big fan of 80s rock. What else could you ask for?

Was working with Darrell but he suddenly quit communicating with me, guess I''ll buy my car elsewhere. Had a 300C that was the exact color we wanted, disappointing!

We had a wonderful experience with Auto Kingdom. Mark Larson was our sales person and he was fair, thorough, professional and fun to work with. He made buying a car an enjoyable experience. I'd certainly buy another car from him or recommend him to my friends and family. Thanks, Mark
