"This is the 3rd car we have bought from here! Great experience every time we have been! I would highly recommend Oakes auto to everyone!"
"The whole team of Oakes from the time you hit the dealer is an awesome experience. Not the typical badger car salesman feel or conversation. My contact Chris was over accommodating and highly professional and attentive. I would be remiss not to mention Sean the GM and Rick in finance as well. I can’t recommend these guys enough as they will figure out a way to help. To find someone like them that is honest and transparent is refreshing. Chris and team have redefined the used car buying experience. Thank you!"
"Traveled down from Des Moines in hopes the car would be everything we thought it was. Thankfully, It was! Devin, Scott & Sean were organized and helped us complete the transaction... all while getting our TLX detailed once more before we left! Nice people, great experience. Thanks all!"
"I came to Oakes with 20 minutes left until closing to check out a used truck. Devin Beavers kindly greeted me and stayed well past an hour after closing to let me check out the truck and discuss my concerns with that model in general. I decided to go home and think it over some more, which to my surprise, the GM, Sean O'Leary, thought was perfectly reasonable and encouraged me, saying there was no rush, which is a position dealers seem to rarely take. The next day I decided to buy it, but didn't finish up at work until after Oakes had closed. Mark Carlson hooked me up with great financing options and even kept the doors open well past closing, again, so that I could pick up my truck. Him and Devin went the extra mile to see that I was comfortable and that the deal went through at my convenience. They seem like trustworthy people, and I will very likely be a repeat customer in the future for both vehicle purchases and servicing."
"Purchased a Ford Escape from Logan. Could not have been a better experience. Logan was friendly, knowledgeable and seemed eager to help. Matter of fact the whole team was helpful and friendly through the entire process."
"Had a great experience! First time buying my own car and everyone was so nice!! (: got to test drive it right away and the whole process was so easy! Very glad that I went to this dealership!"
"I worked with a young man named Matt and he was really great to work with! And, once the deal was made, the finance guy was the best! I highly recommend this dealership as the truck I bought was one I could not have found anywhere but Oakes... Thanks for the great experience! I will definitely recommend them to all of my friends and will be my go to dealership from here on out."
"Shannon was wonderful to my wife and I from the moment I called, came in, and purchased our vehicle. He wasn't pushy or overbearing, explained everything to us, and listened to what we wanted first. It is not typical for a salesman to approach a potential sale like he did, and we are glad we worked with him. We will be sending ppl his way! Great place to buy a car!"
"We've been to other dealerships in the past 2 months trying purchase a car and gotten the typical run around. One dealership even had me wait for 2+ hours then come back the next day just to say they couldn't get the deal done. Not Oakes Auto though they really worked to get us in a car that we wanted and in a reasonable amount of time. There staff is friendly and their prices are very reasonable. I definitely recommend giving them a try if your in the market for a car."
"I am a repeat customer to Oakes. I feel like they are out to help not hide things. Total trust! Give them a look- you won’t be disappointed."

In other words, buying a used car from Oakes Auto is all about cutting down on the stress and keeping you in control of the situation.

Buying a used car can (and should) be a fun and exciting event for you and your family. However, if you rush headfirst into this endeavor without properly preparing yourself, you might end up making a choice that does not completely meet your needs or expectations. To safeguard yourself from this unwanted outcome, join us as we cover a few tips and suggestions that can help enhance and improve your used car buying experience:
Not quite sure what you are looking for in terms of your next vehicle purchase? Then take some time to browse through our online inventory before you stop in at Oakes Auto. Not only can this process help narrow down your list of potential used car matches, it can also minimize your time spent shopping and keep you on track for all of the other commitments that make up your busy schedule.
This is a big one. While it might be tempting to take a risk with a less trustworthy or not so reputable dealership that is offering up an "unbelievable" deal, just remember one thing: If the offer or special sounds too good to be true, then it probably is just another case of smoke and mirrors. At the end of the day, you are much better off bringing your business to a dealership with a proven track record.
Speaking of track records, what better way to vet the claims of a dealership than by reaching out to your peers via customer testimonials and social media conversations? We understand the truth behind this statement, so we openly invite you to connect with friends and family members on your favorite social network – as well as peruse customer testimonials from around the web – to learn more about how these customers leveraged the Oakes Auto difference to find the perfect preowned car.
Sitting down for a talk about your financial situation – be it with an advisor or your significant other – and determining your budget or special fiscal considerations is never an easy undertaking. However, just because broaching this subject can be a little awkward does not mean you should avoid it entirely. By taking the reins and discussing your financial prospects, you open yourself up to a more honest, straightforward, and accurate search for the right used car.
While some members of our industry might tell you otherwise, questioning every aspect of a used car is not something that should be frowned upon or viewed as unacceptable. To put things in plain terms, if the dealership you are visiting is not comfortable with answering any and all questions you might have about a used car, then it is time to take your business elsewhere.
Bouncing back to the conversation on finances for a bit, it is important to point out that most used car purchases come with a variety of different payment options or methods to consider. This means that zeroing in on only one repayment method or ownership schedule is an easy way to hinder your ability to find a plan that best fits into your unique personal situation.
By this point, the message we are trying to impart should be coming into a much sharper focus: If you want to ensure that you find the right used car that accommodates both you and your family, then you will need to put a little bit of hard work and effort into the process. Thankfully, with this quick guide leading the way, picking out a great used car that fits into your daily drive has never been easier.
