Customer Testimonials for Manito Auto Sales

Connie Blick - 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander


This was our first time buying from a dealership, and Brody absolutely made this an A++ experience! From the first interaction to the last, he approached everything with our needs in mind, and really proved that customer satisfaction is his priority. He accommodated our odd schedule and was open to meeting us outside of regular hours to look at a car we saw online. We drove from Bloomington-Normal and he had the car warmed up for us, waiting for the test drive. There was never any moment that he was pushy for a sale or trying to sell us something we didn’t want. Needless to say - we fell in love with the car, and definitely were impressed by Brody and his dedication to his business and customer service. When we came back the next day to pick up the car it was dark and pouring rain - we pulled up and Brody was installing new wipers on it for us! Memorable customer service is about doing the little things for your customers - and supporting this small business will be something we do again when the time comes. Thank you Brody for your kindness, and we’ll be spreading the word!

Emily - 2015 Jeep Cherokee

My family and I drove from Quincy, Illinois (2 hours) to look at a Jeep Cherokee at Manito Auto Sales. We got a little lost and didn’t get there until 10 minutes before close, but Brody stayed open an hour and a half passed closing time for us, and even pulled up the Jeep, ready for a test drive, and showed us his family’s race cars while we waited for a phone call regarding finances. He was extremely polite and came up with every option to make purchasing a car a stress free experience for us. My parents have had bad experiences in the past with other dealers, but they trusted that’s Brody was doing the best that he could, and appreciated that he was willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were happy. We recommend Manito Auto Sales to family and friends, and would definitely drive that boring 2 hr drive again to purchase another car from Brody! We love our new Jeep Cherokee!

Debra W. - 2015 Nissan Altima

I had been looking for a different car for a couple of months. I would check the websites of several auto dealerships in our area and I also went onto the Marketplace site on Facebook. Manito Auto Sales name would keep popping up. So I went to their website, checked out their inventory, read all the reviews and I was impressed. I saw a car that I liked so I emailed Brody and set a time to come look at it. I bought the car that day! Buying a car was never so easy. If you are looking for a different vehicle check out Manito Auto Sales. I was very pleased with my purchase. Thank you, Brody!

Church Organist/Choir director - 2008 Honda Accord

I'm a person who's always bought NEW cars from "big city" dealers and had a rather "skeptical" opinion of used car dealers as often being "sleezy" and untrustworthy. Brody proved that there are truly honest and concerned people selling used cars. Of course, being a home-town-boy from Manito, he knows his livelihood and reputation depend on how he treats his customers, unlike the big metro people around me (Greater Peoria Area). I was helping a close friend with very limited financial resources buy a car to replace her car that was recently totaled in an accident. I did some on-line searches and found what I thought might be a good fit for her. Before seeing the car, I exchanged several emails with Brody (I live 22 miles from Manito, and my friend lives 58 miles away). Brody answered ALL my questions honestly and we set up a time to meet. He had the car ready for a test drive, but as it turned out, is wasn't a good fit for my friend. But, she saw two other affordable cars which we also test-drove, and a Honda Accord turned out to be "love at first drive" for her. I think we got a VERY fair deal from Brody, and he "bent over backwards" as they say to help us. He did not try any "high pressure" tactics, he was honest about the car, and we could tell me truly wanted us to be happy and satisfied with our choice. I would NOT HESITATE to recommend his dealership to other friends needing a nice used car. SEE BRODY...he'll treat you right!

Dan - 2008 Chrysler Town & Country

Thanks again for everything you did for us, the van fits our needs perfectly. It ran great on the way home and average exactly what you said it did on your trip at 25mpg. I will try to get my old man to leave you a positive review too but he is not very good with technology, ha! You made a good impression on him too and he also thought you were very honest & good people. I hope for the best for your business and I will recommend you to anyone. I will also check here first someday when we need another vehicle!

The customer care/service here was great! They had a lot of nice cars and they were reasonably priced! Absolutely loved the small town atmosphere and friendliness that made us feel right at home! The buying process was pretty simple and quick. I would definitely recommend this dealer to anyone and everyone out there needing a reliable vehicle! We left feeling like friends and not just any other customers!

I recently purchased a car from Manito Auto Sales and was very pleased at the customer service provided. There was absolutely no pressure and everything was comfortable. The staff took care of all paperwork but made sure I was aware of important details. Got a great price too. I HIGHLY recommend Manito Auto Sales.

This was my first time buying from Manito Auto Sales, and I'm very glad I chose a local place to shop. Brody went out of his way to help with the loan process and make me feel like a valued customer.

I just purchased a Jeep from Brody. From the initial call to driving away with my new vehicle it was a great experience, very polite and knowledgeable. I would refer anyone to get with Brody before thinking of purchasing elsewhere.
