Testimonials for Zimmerman Houdek Used Car Center

Mike - 2008 Lincoln Navigator

Vehicle was everything as advertised. Cory and the staff were friendly and helpful beyond any dealer we have dealt with. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fair price and friendly service. Mike

Jason O'connell - 2007 Acura MDX

I couldn't be happier with my recent purchase at Zimmerman Houdek. I had been searching for the right vehicle for several months and never imagined I’d find exactly what I was looking for at a local used car dealer. They let me take my time looking over the car and I got to test drive it by myself. There was absolutely no pressure whatsoever. They even addressed a concern I had by calling the dealer and confirming that a recall I found online was taken care of. There was little negotiation when it came to price, it was already $2,000 less than 2 other similar models in the area. I arranged my own financing and I think I spent maybe 10 minutes in their office signing papers before I was on my way. They even throw in a 30 day warranty. This is my new go-to dealer the next time I’m in the market for a vehicle!

Tom - 1998 Oldsmobile delta 88

I made it home ok with OLDS, you represented it fairly and truthfully, alot of dealer's don't do that. I appreciate your help and honesty, I would recommend your dealership to anyone. thanks again Cory. Have a great day. Tom N., Platteville, WI

Joe P - 2006 Chevy Impala SS

This is the 8th purchase from Zimmerman Houdek and I have loved them all. I love to trade cars all the time and I found they are reasonable on their prices! Joe

George N - 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

Purchased a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe from them back in mid December and have waited to see the true colors of this business before writing this. My only vehicle’s motor shelled out, I work construction and was in a tough spot needing a vehicle NOW and looking everywhere for something in my budget. This put me at the disadvantage also, I am from the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area and was very apprehensive about traveling to Marion for a vehicle that I had found on the internet. I need not have worried. . I was extremely pleased with my experience with Zimmerman Houdek. Having bought many cars in my life, all of them used, this by far was my favorite purchase. The price was set at a level so low that haggling becomes nearly a non-issue. Everything that was communicated to me was straightforward, to the point and best of all TRUE. The staff was amazing and extremely accommodating which was quite appreciated as the drive for me, like I said, was a bit of a journey. I was respected and treated as if I was valued, and I full well know the difference between someone being pushy and kissing your butt to get to your wallet and someone being genuine. After sale experience was the icing on the cake, just impeccable, they took very good care of me and any of my concerns. I wish there was something local here that I could trust , with prices not set to squeeze you dry, and vehicles that are of this quality. Worth the drive. Obviously, they have been in this business long enough to have figured out that screwing people over doesn’t aid in longevity. I’m new to writing reviews but I was told that most reviews out there are written by the small percentage of angry people, so I really am glad to take the time to write this.. I would recommend, actually I will insist that my family and friends try them first as they find themselves in need of different vehicles. This may seem over the top but this was my sincere experience and I will put this review everywhere I think people will see it.

Cory, I just wanted to send you a quick note to not only thank you but also your dad for standing behind what you sold us. I was very impressed and apprecitive that you guys fixed the Mazda that we bought from your dealership even though you were not under any warranty to do so. Martin and I are very happy with the car and the service you provided for it. if we know anyone looking for a vehicle we will sure send them your way and also your lot is where we will look when it comes time to by another vehicle. Thankyou again for the excellent customer service, honesty and integrity. Krista Mutert

I drove the BMW back to Ames last night and it is so wonderful. Thank you for all your help. You run a wonderful dealership. Thanks, Abby Brown.

Diana Draker - 2005 Honda Pilot

Just bought a used Honda SUV and it was definitely a great experience from start to finish. The car was at a fantastic price and when I finally picked it up, it looked immaculate inside and out! Having had it for almost a month, the car was exactly as promised... dependable and a good value. I'm already recommending them to family and friends.
