Horrible place to actually buy from if you are trying to buy a car. They deal with damaged cars and its like a 2 week process to actually get a car and you have to put a deposit down to have them fix it.

I just wanted to honestly say I came in on Saturday August 25, 2018 I had never been to your lot before and was not expecting anything. I had been to three other lots and was not happy the staff was not friendly, with one they did not have a big selection and tried to pressure me to get into something with high miles that I did not like. The other only wanted to work with me if I wanted to buy that day (I think he was working on commission) and with the last one I had to keep asking, "can someone help me please."

I put faith into my Saturday to just go and look at your selection of cars and My how I was impressed. I should have come from the very beginning. I checked in, went to the lot there was no pressure, I saw a couple that I liked, this handsome guy (Nathan) pulled up on his gold cart and said, "can I help you?" I showed him the first car I was interested in and begin asking him lots of questions. He put me at ease with my questions and he didn't make me feel like I was asking dumb questions. He fully told me all that he knew about the car and more.

Afterwards he said why don't you take it for a test drive. I thought no hard sell, there was effective communication, and he advised me to get in the vehicle and test drive it. I feel in love immediately with the car and Nathan for his time. Before pulling back onto the lot I knew this was going to be my car. We talked a little further and I left with putting the car on hold in the office and can't wait to pick up my new vehicle!

I was referred to Eastside Auto via a friend who has bought lots of cars from Eastside over the years and has referred others.

Thanks Eastside auto :-)

Its really not in mine or anybody else's best interest to write a good review (too many people learn about a good thing, increasing both demand and competition) but, sometimes you just have to..... I've bought many (10-15) cars from East Side over the last 15 years (always for personal use) and never had a bad experience. The last car I bought, a 2014 Kia Cadenza LTD was such a great deal (price and service), that I still cant believe it. I wouldn't go elsewhere. Thanks to Mark and Team.

Wonderful car dealership if you are seeking reliable and affordable cars. Must be willing to look beyond the prior salvage title.... that said, I have purchased 2 cars from here and know a handful of others who have also done so. Everyone I have spoken to (myself included) couldn’t be happier and more pleased with the overall experience and satisfaction of Their vehicle and customer satisfaction. Ny new car has been nothing but amazing thus far and I wanted to make sure east side auto recidved my appreciation and satisfaction once again.

Brand new Jeep Cherokee listed cheap online but Carfax shows this is a flood/salvage title vehicle from Texas. I do not see any mention of this in the ad. Will not do business with such a company.

Easy place to buy a car for cheep way under blue book. All the cars have keys so you can pop in walk the lot and start the cars. I only seen one sales person who was busy which I was fine with. I started the car pulled it up in front, got a plate and took it out to hwy 61 then drove back and walked in and bought it. I bought a 2014 JETTA with 23,000 miles for $5,000 and I couldn't be happier with it. I plan on going back to buy a 4-wheel drive truck before 2018 winter

I have bought 2 cars there and had loved each one lasted years. The cars are just broke in and great prices mine now has hail damage but I don't care it doesn't effect the running and that is what I care about. I'm ready to buy another one. The sales people are great and helpful.

Our sales person was knowledgeable about the cars we were looking for and what safety features were in the cars we were looking at. We got a good deal on a Subaru Crosstrek and were very happy. The only downside was the repair of the hail that broke the paint surface. 3 different colored white paint spots were applied with either fingers or a Q-tip. You’re better off not letting them patch it and taking it to the shop next door. They did a great job of fixing some of the more noticeable hail dents and we replaced the hood. We still can out ahead and it’s going to be a great reliable little car for our son. I plan on buying from them again for our next youngest.
