Testimonials for Brown Motorcars

Rick and Marla Berry - 2004 Mercedes E-320

I have bought 4 dream cars and they have all been purchased from Brown Motors. I tell Jim what I want and he finds it. There is never any pressure and I am always so happy with the "Deal" that I promise never to shop elsewhere. It's kinda like your favorite hairdresser and you KNOW how important that is! Thank you Jim and Mario for always making my dreams come true. I am a forever customer.

Dean & Kim - 2007 Ford Mustang Foose Edition

As owners of several new and used cars throughout the years, I must say this was by far one of the easiest buying experiences. We walked away feeling like we got such a great deal on a very unique car. Jim and Mario really went out if their way to make sure we felt good about the deal and were quick to schedule and complete a few follow-up fixes. We will definitely look here first when we're in the market for our next car or toy!

Shane Pastour - 2013 Legend 7x12 Flat Top

If u are in the market for an enclosed trailer...big small or in between. Go to Brown Motorcars in Des Moines and have Mario show u the difference between an All Aluminum Legend trailer versus the competition. I purchased a Legend to serve as a lawncare trailer. So far I love it and customers are already commenting on how nice it looks. The guys at Browns are top notch...fair, knowlegable and motivated.

Mel Eddy - 2007 Chevy Corvette Z06

I cannot tell you enough of the overall car buying experience I received when purchasing my 2007 ZO6 Corvette from Brown Motorcars. I originally went to them to sell my 2004 ZO6 Corvette after hearing thru a co worker that dealt with them on his Corvette and had nothing but the best things to say about his experience with them. I wanted to sell my car to eventually find a black C6 ZO6 that I could do some Hi performance mods to. So after arriving at the dealership and speaking to Mario on my situation he informed me that my dream car was right inside their dealership. Sure enough on the showroom floor there sit the beast of all ZO6 Corvettes. It was black and had more goodies on it then anything I would have been able to do to it myself. This monster was equipped with a full race cam, heads, ported intake, ported throttle body, vortex cold air induction, 1 7/8 kooks long tube headers, and electric exhaust cut outs. The work on the drivetrain alone was well over ten thousand dollars and done by a very creditable performance motorsport company with quality craftsmanship. I couldn't of been more happy with Mario, and Jim Brown for working with me. They exceeded all of my expectations and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy anything from their inventory. Thanks again! -Mel

Pete & Aletha Stienstra - 2004 Honda Pilot

We were looking for a used Honda Pilot when we came across an '04 Pilot on your website. I stopped and looked at it and drove it and I was struck by the little details. It was super clean, smelled good, ran like a top and generally impressed me. We had a 2001 Chevy 4X4 crew cab Z-71 pickup to trade. We never felt like we were being "played" like buyers do sometimes. I truly trusted you guys which is the mark of a good organization. You gave us a fair price on the Pilot and you also gave us a fair trade-in value on our pickup. Your lot may be 75 miles from us, but we would recommend you to anyone, and have. I am sure that we will be doing business again in the future. Sincerely, Pete and Aletha Stienstra Gowrie, IA

Ashlie Keasling - 2012 Chevy Malibu

I just wanted to thank you for the great experience I had buying the 2012 Malibu. It meant a lot to me when you stayed two hours past close to wait for me to get there. You answered all the questions I had and were very honest with me. I love my new car and am even happier that I did business with a great company. You guys aren’t the average car dealership that pushes you into something you’re not sure about and I really appreciate that. I will defiantly be referring you to other people and look forward to doing business with you again in the future! Thank you Ashlie Keasling

Tom & Julie Chapman - 1979 Chevy Corvette

Just wanted to take a minute and thank you for how smooth and efficient our recent purchase of the Silverado and Corvette went. I'm very pleased with both vehicles and I don't miss my old car at all :) Brown Motorcars offers something the big box stores just can't provide, personality AND personalized service. I certainly didn't feel like a piece of meat to a floor full of sales people all competing for my business. Usually I hate dealing with car purchases but this one was very easy and dare I say fun. I enjoyed our conversations while things were coming together. Thanks again! Tom and Julie Chapman

Todd Lambertsen - 1999 Ford F-350 Crew Cab Dually

Called Mario to look at the 1999 dually. He was very courteous on the phone and explained to me everything about the truck I needed to know. I had to drive 2.5 hours away to go see it. I told him I was coming it, he said he would hold it for me to check out. I went up that day to look at it and after seeing the condition of the truck, I purchased it right then and there. Mario as well as Jim, his dad, are the ideal salespeople. They tell you up front about the vehicle and what they have to have out of it to make the sale. No bickering back and forth. Professional on their end. A pleasure doing business with them. Todd Lambertsen

Jeff O'Tool - 2013 Legend 7x19 Explorer

I recently purchased a Legend Explorer snowmobile trailer from Brown Motorcars. I would say that the experience was top notch. Mario was very helpful and timely in his replies and his pricing was very attractive. He was able to make the process painless. When I picked up the trailer, it was clean and ready to go. Jim walked around the trailer and showed the important features of the Legend Trailers. Brown Motorcars takes pride in their product lines and the customer service is excellent. This was my first trip to the lot, but will not be my last. I would encourage anyone to give them a chance. Jeff O'Tool MD

Jay and Becky Rosenberger - 2011 Buick LaCrosse

Hi Jim and Mario, We just wanted to thank you both for the car you got for us. It was in excellent condition both motor and body wise. The service and time you spent with us was outstanding and much appreciated. We will highly recommend you to our friends. Thanks again. Jay and Becky Rosenberger

Matt Pilcher - 2004 Chevy Silverado Regular Cab Short Box

Hi Mario, Thanks for the great deal on the truck. I like how everyone at Brown Motors is down to earth. I requested a few minor items done to the truck and it was taken care off with no hesitation. The truck reminds me of driving my figure 8 race truck, it makes me happy happy happy. I will buy from Brown Motors again. Thanks Matt

Todd Sowers - 1997 Chevy Corvette

I recently purchased a 97 corvette from Brownmotorcars in Des Moines and couldn't be more happy with the professionalism, knowledge, and the overall experience in buying a vehicle. I handled most of the business over the phone without one problem and enjoyed the chance to meet a salesman that wasn't pushy, just accommodating. I want to thank the sales team at Brownmotorcars especially Mario for selling me my new toy. Thanks Again, Todd Sowers

Nick Loehr - 2007 Ford Mustang Convertible

I just wanted to say this has been the best overall car buying experience. Jim, Keith, and Mario stand behind their word unlike many of these other big car dealerships. All of the inventory at brownmotorcars is a quality product that made me feel safe in purchasing my 2007 ford mustang. I will defiantly be a repeat customer with their dealership because of the time that all three of the guys spent with me. Not one of them pressured me into buying the car that day. I told them the set budget that i had and that it had to be in that price range. They exceeded all of my expectations and I would give them a 10 out of 10. I would like to give a big thank you out to Keith, Jim, and Mario. Great summer car!

Kinsey Grebner - 2005 Dodge Magnum

Wanted to thank you for the good experience of purchasing my Dodge Magnum that I hadbeen looking for. Nice people and atmosphere. I have been really enjoying my new car. Thanks Again Keith! P.S. I would have looked way better if Keith wouldn't have used all the make-up

Richard Oneill - 2003 Jaguar XK8 Convertible

Love the car. Keith was great to work with. Very accomodating, would recomment to all my friends. Richard Oneill

Lindsey Bahr - 2004 Acura TSX

"I had been car shopping for several weeks. I test drove many makes and models and spoke with several dealerships. I drove past Brown Motor Cars and saw the 2004 Acura TSX and instantly fell in love. My current car at the time was also an Acura, so I was confident with its performance and knew that it would be a great car. Keith made my experience all the better. The comfort of buying a car from a smaller dealership with strong roots in a large community is what it's all about. He really made my decision easy and I am very happy with my new-to-me car!" Thanks! Lindsey Bahr

Kelly & Mary Cochran - 1998 Chevy Corvette

My husband had looked for months for a corvette. I would ask him every night while he was searching all the sites on the Internet, find anything good? One night he said come and look at this vet. It happen to be at Brown Motor Cars in Des Moines. We had a Harley to trade and we didn't think anyone would give us what we thought the bike was worth. We went to Browns to look at the corvette. Of course we both loved it, Mario Brown was very personable gave us all the info on the car and told us to bring the bike and they would take a look. At first chance we took the bike to Mario and his father Jim. They asked what we would like to get for our bike and what they could do to make a deal. Mario and Jim were so close to what we wanted, we bought the corvette on the spot. Seriously that is the first time in 41 years if marriage I ever witnessed my husband make such a quick buy. We would recommend Brown Motor Cars. Sincerely, Kelly and Mary

Just want to pass along my appreciation of my experience with you Mario, and Brown Motorcars. This was my first experience with purchasing from you, and it will likely not be my last. I'm certainly glad I chose at the last minute to check cars.com, and see the posting for this truck. Once I arrived, it didn't take long to know this truck was everything I was looking for and much more. Thanks for the cookies too! Curt and Kathy Thompson March 2012

Chris & Tami Shepherd - 2002 GMC Yukon XL

We really enjoyed dealing with Brown Motor Cars! Mario made it a very pleasant experience and a super easy transaction! We love our vehicle! We will definitely tell our friends! Thanks Mario!!!

Bill & Sue Kealy - 2010 Ford F-150

We recently purchased a 2010 Ford F-150 from Brown Motorcars. We simply told them what we were looking for, and they found us the perfect vehicle at a price below the competition. They even took care of the financing and got us a payment below what we expected. It was the easiest vehicle purchase we have ever experienced. We will certainly shop Brown Motorcars for our next vehicle purchase. Bill and Sue Kealy Council Bluffs, IA

Will Hillard - 2007 Dodge Ram 1500

I love my experience at Brown motors! First off the price worked for me! Keith and the guys worked out a deal on my truck that I could afford, knowing I only had a budget of $10,000.! They came down on price, when everyone else said sorry priced to sell! Then they worked on the time frame I needed because I had to wait for my taxes to get back to finish the deal! That spoke highly to me where as another dealer ship wasn't as cool about things! So Brown Motors won my business, and I'm glad because I got a quality used truck that meets my needs! (plus my fiancé thinks I look hot in my new tuck!! Lol!)

I was very happy with the purchase of my 2004 Ranger 519vx boat from Brown Motor Cars. Keith was a joy to deal with and he really worked hard to get the deal done in a timely fashion. The boat was just as they described to me, and they gave me a good deal as well. Those of you thinking of buying a car, truck, toy, or whatever give Keith at Brown Motor Cars a call. Thanks for a great deal on the boat and I just cant wait to get it in the water and catch some bass. Thanks again Keith, Jason Strong

Steve and Debbie Bright - 2005 Chevy Silverado

Just want to thank Mario and Jim for a great experience while shopping for our truck. Mario was great! He answered all of our questions and made us feel very much at ease. No pressure at any time. In the past when we have shopped somewhere else,the experience has been stressful and not relaxing. Totally different at Brown MotorCars. Won't be going anywhere else from now on. We will tell everyone we know to be sure and stop at Brown Motor Cars. Thank you Mario and Jim. Debbie and Steve Bright

Lance Burke - 2008 Chevy Silverado Ext Cab

I just wanted to say thank you to Mario for making my truck buying experience, a great one. Mario was very accommodating and very easy to work with. He answered all my questions and made the entire process very enjoyable. Brown Motor Cars has earned my business and I will definitely be looking there first whenever I need another vehicle. Thanks again! Lance Burke

Ken & Polly Brown - 2010 Chevy Impala

This our 2nd vehicle we have bought from BrownMotorCars and we couldn't be happier.

James - 2005 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab

As an avid car fan and repeat customer, I have found that for all my needs, BrownMotorCars is the place to go. Mario is a knowledgeable salesman (wise beyond his years), and very professional when it comes to customer service. I was in the market for a new vehicle, though not knowing exactly what I wanted. I went to them with a few cars I would be interested in. Boy, was I surprised when Mario called me within 2 days on a truck they had just gotten in. I was amazed at the quick turn-around and the high quality of the vehicle. All of my experiences with BrownMotorCars have been like this, so I will gladly tell everyone in the market for a quality used vehicle to see my friends at BrownMotorCars. Thanks guys! I look forward to my next vehicle from you. James

Don and Margo Armel - 2004 Ford Expedition

We had been looking around for a newer pre-owned vehicle for my husband’’s business. On a recent evening we noticed Brown Motor Cars as we drove past on I-80/35. On the way home, we decided to stop in to see what they had. Keith was still there and showed us what they had available. The next day we went back and talked more with Keith and started the paperwork on a 2004 Ford Expedition. It was just what we were looking for not only for my husband’’s business needs, but also for towing our travel trailer. We needed heavier tires due to trailer towing, and running boards (I’’m short!). Keith and Jim worked out the deal for us including a set of new tires and the running boards! We really appreciate Keith’’s patience working with us to get everything we needed at a fair price. We plan to tell people about Brown Motor Cars, Inc. You’’re all a great bunch to work with. Thanks so much. Don and Margo Armel Altoona, IA

If your looking for a dealer that makes buying a car easy, and stress free, BrownMotorCars is the place to go! I bought a 2007 Mustang GT with only 3000 miles on it, when we sat down to work numbers out and agree on a price, I wasn't able to make the deal right away with the money I had, so Mario said give him sometime to try and work some things out. Alright well sure enough Mario worked pretty hard to get me into this car and made buying the car pretty simple! Not only did they get me into the car I wanted but they also built a friendship, they are not there harassing you to buy this car or to get a cosigner, they are there to work with you and help in anyway they can! Poor Mario was the one getting harassed by me! Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase I couldn't have got into a better car at my age anywhere! I recommend BrownMotorCars to anyone ready to buy a car and make some new friends in the process! Thanks again!!

Val & Dave Hartwell - 2007 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic

Hi Jim, Got home yesterday afternoon sunburned and sore. The bike is running like a million bucks and is so comfortable.We’’d just like to thank you, Mario, and Keith for all of the help. It was a great experience dealing with you folks.

Stephen and Linda Duvall - 2011 Chevy Equinox

Thank you for finding us such a beautiful, almost new, 2011 Chevy Equinox! It is clean and doesn’’t have a scratch on it! We think it will be a great car for us and the gas mileage was very good on our drive home. The radio sounds wonderful and I was so happy that it is big enough to put a bike in the back end, with the seats folded down. We really appreciated your quick service in finding the car. We would recommend BrownMotorCars to anyone who is looking for a great car at a great price! We will be back whenever we are "car shopping" in the future! Thanks again!


Keith, I just wanted to shoot you an email to say thanks for the new bike. I absolutely love it and am super pumped to get it out on the track next year. You were awesome to deal with and gave me a great deal on the bike. When im in the market for a new vehicle I will definitely hit ya up!!!!!! Thanks, Clay

Brent & Brenda - 2009 Chevy Traverse

We just wanted to thank you for the great experience we had buying the Traverse. You answered all of our questions about the car and were very honest with us. You made everything easy and hassle-free. We love the new car and the kids love it too! I have already referred you to a friend of mine and I am sure we will be back the next time we are interested in buying car. Thanks again!

JB - 2009 H&H Trailer

Kieth and Jim I recently purchased a pre-owned enclosed trailer from Kieth. My experience was great! Fast and Friendly service from start to finish. A great local business, I will refer all my friends to Brown Motor cars!

Ann Vaughan - 2006 Nissan Maxima

Hey guys, Sorry for the delay in writing my own thank you note! My excuse….I’ve been busy driving my Maxima and loving every minute. Keith, your patience in listening to me describe the kind of car I wanted and letting me walk away without guilt until you found “my” right fit was amazing! Jim and Mario, as always, it was wonderful seeing you again and catching up. You definitely bring new meaning to “friends and family” I don’t think you forget anyone or anything. I’m sure this ride will be as great as my last Brown Motorcar vehicle…You guys Rock! Thanks much! Ann Vaughan

Rhys & Gemma - 1966 Ford Thunderbird

Keith and Jim, Many thanks for the time that you spent with Gemma and I, helping to answer all of our questions on buying a classic car. We’re delighted with our new (old) T-bird, and are planning how we’ll road trip around the US in her. I really appreciated your honesty, patience, and genuine interest towards cars. Thanks again, Rhys & Gemma

Robert Morris-Riley - 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab

I appreciate all the work Mario and the staff did in a very timely manner to help me purchase a vehicle, they got all financing done and everything within same day I filled out application. Thank you Mario and the staff, I will be back when time to purchase another vehicle.

Anna M. Jaeger - 2004 Lexus RX330

Buying my Lexus RX 330 was the biggest and best purchase I’’ve made in my life to date. As a first time car buyer, I wasn’’t sure what to expect and was somewhat scared to take the plunge! It was a great experience working with Jim and Mario. It felt like dealing with old friends versus the slick salesmen I met with at other dealerships, and I didn’’t feel pressured to make a quick decision. When I was ready to purchase my Lexus, it was a quick, seamless process and I still haven’’t gotten the smile off my face. I am definitely recommending Brown Motor Cars to my friends and family who are in search of a vehicle in the future! Thank you!

Kate and Rodger Reinhart - 2000 Honda S-2000

I want to take this opportunity to thank Keith Overton and the owners and staff at Brown Motorcars for a pleasurable car buying experience. My wife and I were looking for a sporty car at a reasonable price. We looked at a wide variety of cars over a wide geographic area and found our Honda S2000 right here in town!The car was in showroom condition, had low-low miles,and was reasonably priced…just what we were looking for.Working with Keith was easy and stress-free. He made us feel comfortable, answered all our questions, and even helped us line-up the car for our mechanic to evaluate.I would recommend Brown Motorcars to anyone looking for that special car…a solid older model with low miles or rare vehicles that are hard to find. I know I will stop by from time-to-time just to see what new vehicles they have in their showroom. Thanks again…we love our Honda S2000!

Jeff Blackman - 1992 Chevy Corvette

Just a note of thanks for the fine experience with my recent purchase of the 1992 Corvette. Although it took awhile (because of weather and distance) to accomplish everything, Brown Motor Cars and you were just great making thanks happen. I look forward to an ongoing relationship. Sincerely, Jeff Blackman

Jake and Amy - 2002 Chevy Corvette

Amy and I wanted to take a moment to thank Brown Motor Cars and especially Keith Overton for putting us in our 2002 Corvette. We are thrilled with our car and appreciate the help we got from you in this process. Your business will be wholeheartedly recommended to our friends and certainly will be coming back when looking for another car in the future. Your knowledge of the car and your professionalism made this an enjoyable and rewarding process.

Fred Jenks - 2002 Chevy Corvette Convertible

Had a good time while we were there at your sales room working a trade with you. My brother-in-law enjoyed it too because of the Boss Mustang you had on the floor - he is a Ford Fanatic while I’m pretty much strictly GM. We had a great ride home I the ‘02 C5 compared to the ride over! The car runs beautifully and even my wife is impressed with it. We used to take rides in my 1989 or 1995 C4 Corvettes but she says they just aren’t as nice a ride or as comfortable as the ‘02 C5, so I guess the remaining ‘95 C4 will be staying in the garage a little bit more. Thank you for going out of your way to get me an Owners Manual that was missing from the car when I bought it. It arrived a couple of days ago. Also, a BIG THANKS for going after the other set of keys for the car. I know you probably had to pester someone to get them but it was that little extra step you took. I was very surprised when you called to say that they were going to be in the mail too. All in all an enjoyable experience and by the way, the chocolate chip cookies tasted great too. Thanks again, the car is great and I’ve been having a lot of fun driving it. One of my friends who has a 91 C4 was very impressed with it also. I love the extra horses under the hood, haven’t gotten stopped yet but have been close a couple of times already. Its hard to not get into it! Lovin the C5. Monmouth IL

Dennis Lee - 2005 Chevy Colorado

I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone there. I haven’’t felt so comfortable buying a vehicle in a very long time. The Colorado is doing great! Anyone who is considering buying a vehicle should make Brown Motor Cars their first and last stop. The selection is great and the cars are all clean units. I have bought a lot of vehicles over the years and have never been so impressed. And when i told Keith what I was looking for, and they didn’’t have it, they found the perfect vehicle for me! I trust them implicitly and value what they have to say. I will be back to buy another vehicle from them. as far as I am concerned, there is only one place to buy a used car and it is Brown Motor Cars! And I will put my name and reputation on it!

Dave & Maxine Davenport - 1978 Chevy Corvette

We would like to thank Jim and Keith for the experience we had with them in the purchase of our 1978 Corvette. Customer service is what they are all about,they spent time explaining anything we had questions about or sharing things we didn’’t think to ask. There was no pressure put on us to make the purchase, they let it be our choice.It was the most comfortableauto purchase we’’ve made.Buying a classic car is a different experience and this was top notch.We will recommend them to our family and friends. We were amazed at the speedy ahead of schedule delivery(customer service). We absolutely love the car and being first time corvette owners.Thank you Jim and Keith. We will be back again. Lost in the parking lot,

Laura Duvall - 2007 Chevy HHR

Thank you guys for helping me find the perfect car. You made my first car-buying experience easy and stress-free. It was great being able to talk with each of you about what I wanted, and I got the perfect car without doing any of the work! Thanks for everything, I’’m having fun driving my new car ’’pumpkin.’’

Nick Smith - 2002 Chevy Silverado Ext Cab

I’’d really like to give a huge thanks to Brown Motor Cars. Working with Keith,Mario, and Jim was such an easy, painless, and fun thing to do. I’’m only 19 years old and as you can imagine, it’’s pretty intimidating when buying your first car on your own. It’’s easy to tell that these guys truly love what they do on a day-to-day basis, and what better type of person is out there to work with than someone who loves their job and is good at it too? Not only do they make sure you feel comfortable buying from them, they make sure you are buying the car that is for you and that’’s exactly what they did for me. I get excited every time someone asks me where I bought my new truck because I get to tell them about Brown Motor Cars and their staff. I honestly wouldn’’t consider them a "Used Car Dealership" but more of a "Quality Pre-Owned Car Dealership." They take pride in each and every car they purchase for their lot, and that’’s what puts them a step above everyone else. I will recommend Brown Motor Cars to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle, and I’’m proud to say that I will be a lifetime customer of theirs. Thanks again for everything all of you have done! Sincerely, Nick Smith and his 2002 Chevy Silverado

Mike Dirks - 2001 Ford F-150 Super Crew

Mario, I just want to thank you for the F-150 SuperCrew truck that you sold me. It isn’’t about the truck though, it’’s about the service and hospitality provided. I feel like I made a new friend. Thanks! Your Friend, Mike Dirks Huxley, Ia

Mary Knox - 2007 Pontiac G6

I want to thank Brown Motor Cars for making my purchase of a Pontiac G6 for my daughter so easy. The information and pictures they had on the internet portrayed the car perfectly. I called and asked some questions over the phone before making the trip to look at it and Mario was able to answer all the questions and made me feel comfortable that even though the car had high miles it was a well maintained car, which was evident once I looked at it. I drove and hour to look at the car and an hour later I was on my way back home with it. They were very efficient in dealing with me on the price and in handling all the paperwork. So far my daughter and I are very happy with the vehicle and very happy with the ease of doing business with Brown Motor Cars. We received an added bonus in the mail today - cookies, which by the way are as good as the Brown Motor Cars sales team. I would recommend doing business with this family owned business any time.

Lee White - 2006 Dodge Viper

I want to express my many thanks to Micheal for working out a very fair trade and executing a quick transaction.Thanks again to Jim for hauling my Viper all the way to Houston, Texas. You all are wonderful and it was a pleasure dealing with a Dealership that is honest about a vehicles representation. I will send a picture soon. Thanks again.

Larry and Marlene Hummel - 2004 Chevy Corvette Coupe

Over the years we have bought, or traded, for more than 15 vehicles. The last one was a Corvette just recently traded with Brown Motor Cars in Des Moines. We can easily say that working with Jim, Mario, and Keith was the easiest, most professional, and one of the most pleasant experiences that we’’ve ever had. They knew what they were talking about, gave honest answers,and truthfully represented their cars. They kept their word from the beginning until the deal was closed. We traded for a a vehicle that we had had very little experience with until we went to Jim and Mario. They told us all the pros and cons of the ones they had for sale, and we really appreciated their honesty. This dealership treated us with great respect, didn’’t try to direct us to just one they wanted to sell, nor were they pushy with us. If Jim and Mario weren’’t available, Keith was there to help us. This won’’t be the last time that we will be dealing with them.

Dennis and Karen - 2000 Chevy Corvette Coupe

BrownMotorCars is an exceptional place to do business! Mario’’s honesty, integrity and fairness are a rare find! We are extremely pleased with our Corvette -- thanks, Mario! Ankeny, IA

Courtney and Ben - 2003 Chevy Impala

Hi, this is just a testimonial you can add if you’’d like. Sorry I lost Mario’’s email address..... Ben and I love our new Impala. The family business atmosphere made us feel more comfortable and less stressed about purchasing a vehicle. We’’ll definitely be back to see Mario and everyone at Brown Motor Cars when we’’re ready for our next purchase! Thanks to all of you!

Carmen E. Byers - 2006 Gem E2

Thank you for the truly professional service provided to me from Mr. Brown and Staff at Brown Motor Cars. I was very reluctant buying a vehicle over the internet. Brown Motor Cars made it easy. Your service surpassed all my expatations -The personal attention to details where remarkable - Mario Brown personally delevered my new 2006 GEM Car to my front door, over 1400 miles, the delivery was timely and the car was just as stated in their ad. Thank you Brown Motor Cars for a delightful experience.

Happy Customer - _ _ _

Hey Keith, I wanted to let you know that the TL is treating me great! No one likes shopping and dickering on a used car but my experience with you at Brown Motors Cars was by far the best one to date. You’’re honesty and frankness were much appreciated! I wish you the best in the future and will definitely be referring you to others as I know you will treat them right.

Leigh Custard - _ _ _

I wanted to take a moment to thank Brown Motor Cars and especially Keith Overton. Your professionalism made this process go so smooth. You took the time to work with us on the price and made sure the car was extra clean when we picked it up. I’’m enjoying my BMW so much!! Doing business with Brown Motor Cars has been a great experience. I will make sure let everyone know about you guys!!

Eric Johansen - _ _ _

My wife and I purchased a 2007 Honda Accord from Brown Motor Cars a little over a year ago. After searching the Iowa market for an Accord, I only found a few that met my requirements in the entire state. I looked at two Accords, one at a well-known Des Moines dealership and the one I ultimately purchased from Brown Motor Cars. The reason I purchased from Brown Motor Cars is simple; they were honest and they did not play the games that I ran into with the other dealer. After having my Honda Accord for a year, I have had no problems with the car and I can look back and recommend Brown Motor Cars to my friends and family. Thank you to the team at Brown Motor Cars for a good experience.

Keith just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us get our new car. We purchased a Chrysler 300 and we have been looking for one for the last 3 years. The car was very clean inside and out and the price was just what we were looking for. In fact since we’’ve purchased the car I’’ve continued to look at the web-sites & dealerships & have not yet found a deal like the one we found with you. We appreciated all your knowledge & honesty. We will definitely be looking for our next car at your establishment & we would recommend you in a heartbeat! Thanks again for everything. Jose & Paige Marrero West Des Moines, IA

Todd & Gina - _ _ _

My wife and I want to say how much we appreciated all the effort and hard work your organization (Jim, Keith, and Mario) went to in helping us make a decision on purchasing a new vehicle with your organization. It was a breath of fresh air to work with such honest and open people who kept their word throughout the transaction. I would highly recommend your organization to anyone I know looking to purchase a new vehicle. You were very easy to work with and we never felt pressured into making the purchase. The whole process went very smoothly and made us feel very comfortable with our final decision. Again, we really appreciated your help and definitely would buy another vehicle from Brown Motor Cars.

Kevin and Jennifer Gigstad - _ _ _

Shopping for a car with Brown Motorcars was a great experience for our family. The car was found online, and because we live several hours away, the deal was made over the phone. Keith was open and honest with us-allowing us to make the final decision after we saw the car. The dealership was small, friendly, and super clean as were all the cars. There was no pressure to buy. We hope to do business there again. It was well worth the three hour drive. Kevin and Jennifer Gigstad Kansas residents

In 3 years i have purchased two trucks and a motorcycle from Keith, Jim and Mario. I continue to do business with them because time and time again because i am treated as if I am family. I consider them very good friends and will continue to buy from them as long as they are around. If you read all of the testimonials on here, you can see its obvious that the level of professionalism is far above the mark. Their vehicles are nothing but the best that the car market has to offer. All budgets and tastes included. You have nothing to loose. No high pressure, no gimmicks. Just some real, honest guys trying to help you find a great car at a fair price.

Mike Puetz - _ _ _

Thanks to Keith for the very down to earth and resonable avoiding the typical high pressure tatic. He was honest about all questions and I enjoyed dealing with him. Thanks Keith.

Natalie F. - _ _ _

I used to get really uncomfortable around sales people at car dealerships.I always hated conversing with the sales people because I was never sure if I was hearing the truth or just what they wanted me to hear. I went into Brown Motorcars with my guard up and my experience turned out to be absolutely wonderful. These guys were as down-to-earth as they come and their professionalism was outstanding. They truly went above and beyond to help me buy the car I had been searching for a long time. Their willingness to work with me and actually LISTEN was a breath of fresh air.I could not have had a better experience and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a car, RV, boat, motorcycle or any toy. I am very happy with my new car and truly appreciate all that they did to help me get exactly what I wanted. Sincerely appreciative, Des Moines, IA

Rob & LouAnn Hurd - _ _ _

Keith and Jim, Thanks guys, you made my wife very happy, and when "mama’’s" happy, I’’m happy. We purchased a great looking "03 Durango. Excellent hassle free service, the total experience was painless and I left feeling confident with the purchase. I will recommend you to my friends and family. Your vehicles are presented well and ours looks like new.

Jared - _ _ _

I just wanted to drop a note to tell you that my experience at your dealership was one of the best experiences I’’ve ever had buying anything. I’’ve never felt so comfortable making such a big purchase. I found you all beyond friendly, beyond fair, and beyond accommodating. It wasn’’t a high pressure sales experience at all. I am confident I couldn’’t have found a better deal anywhere in the state. As far as the car goes, I love it. Really. I won’’t go so far to say that I would sleep in the car, but if it fit in my bedroom, I’’d certainly sleep beside it. This is by far the nicest car I’’ve ever owned, and the most enjoyable driving experience I’’ve ever had. Thanks again! - Jared

Hello Brown Motor Cars, I just purchased a Pickup truck from your dealership and I am elated. The total car or truck buying experience was excellent. I walked inside the door and felt like I was being treated like a family member in good standing. The respected my time and respected my opinion. They were friendly and helpful to answer any questions and took the time that no one else would do. They are truly friends and will not hesitate to recommend them to my friends and family and co-workers. Great Job my friends !!!!!!!

Keith, Many thanks for making the buying process easy - Love the bike - Take Care, I just traded in my 2008 H-D Street Glide for a 2010 H-D Street Glide from the Team at Brown Motor Cars. Keith and the guys at Brown Motor Cars made the final decision to purchase the bike an easy decision to make. I appreciate the no-pressure approach they had negotiating the trade. After we worked out the details on the trade, Keith and Mario stayed later than normal business hours to complete the transaction and they got me on the road with my new bike yet that night since I had leave town early the next day. I would definitely recommend that anyone looking for a car or motorcycle to give the Brown Motor Cars Team a shot!!! Tim

Keith gave me a great deal on a great truck. He worked with me to come to terms that worked well for both of us and was great to deal with. There was no pressure to buy and Keith let me take all the time I needed to come to a decision. I’’m very happy with my experience at Brown Motor Cars. Thanks Keith, I’’ll see you later today.

Keith,Just wanted to say thanks for all your help in making this vehicle buying experience one of the most hassle free that I have experienced in all my buying years. Brown Motor Cars has truly the best staff in town. I was not pressured at any time to buy a vehicle. This is not your ordinary dealership. Brown Motor Cars really know how to clean up a vehicle. I purchased a 2003 Chevy Avalanche that looked like it was still new. I feel like Im driving a new truck, thanks again Keith it was a pleasure doing business with you. Sincerely,

Scot and Heather Mora - _ _ _

When I first heard of Brownmotorcars, and how others have explained "their way of doing business" I was skeptical. However given my inquisitive personality, I had to find out for myself. I called Jim several years ago, and explained to him what I was looking for, and the price range I needed him to be in. I gave him color preferences,year and milage limitations. I was impressed, within two weeks Jim called me and said he believes he had the vehicle we were looking for and would we like to come and see it? Before we even got to his shop, my wife spotted it from the stoplight and said "I’’ll bet thats it". Before our test drive Jim showed us the features of the vehicle, and then made a disclosure you would not expect from a dealer. He said "you are not obligated to purchase this if it is not what you are looking for. I thought he was kidding, given the specs we gave him for the vehicle we were looking for was what he found. We recently purchased our second vehicle from Brown Motorcars. Jim did not dissapoint. He found us another great unit, and as stated above, all within the specs we requested. If your in the market for a vehicle, give Brown Motorcars a call. This not your ordinary dealership. You wont be intimidated, hassled, or turned over to a sales manager so you can feel like your being ganged up on. Thanks again Jim.

Keith, Just wanted to express my deepest gratitude for your help last week. The testimonials are 100% correct in that BrownMotorcars.com is committed 100% to customer satisfaction. My "new to me" Saab is beautiful and the entire process was comfortable and without pressure. From start to finish I felt that I was a valued customer and would highly recommend your company to anyone looking for a quality vehicle from a quality company. I just wished it wasn’’t snowing when I picked up my convertible! Thanks again for your awesome work on my behalf!

Don Short - _ _ _

I wanted to say thanks to Brown Motor Cars for having such a professional, caring, sales person on their staff. I told Keith Overton what I wanted in a car and he found me several to look at. Keith explained the different options of each of the cars. Keith not only explained the technical information about the vehicles but he put them to terms someone like myself could understand. By taking the time to listen to what I was saying Keith was able to help me with my selection and made sure I received the car I really wanted. I will recommend Keith to anyone who mentions they are looking for a car. It’s truly refreshing to find someone who loves his job, understands his product and genuinely cares about he customer such as Keith does. Thanks again

Doing business with Brown Motor Cars has been a great experience.Special thanks to Keith Overton for his efforts in making the buying process simple and hassle-free! He’’s a great guy to work with and was very helpful every step of the way.

The guys at Brown Motor Cars were great. They were able to answer all of our questions and help us get financing. Like most car lots that we visited they did not seem put out that we needed to get financing. Bob is really picky and he found just what he wanted at Brown Motors. We will always go to Brown Motor Cars first when we need another vehicle.(a truck in the near future). Just want to say thank you for making our vehicle purchase painless.

You truly take care of your customers and take service to a whole new level. You have gained a loyal customer for life. I carry your business cards with me and hand them out anytime someone makes a comment on my car just because I want everyone to have the same experience I had. You made me feel comfortable and gave me all the information I needed to know to make a wise decision on my purchase, and I could not be happier with that! Thank you again for everything you have done and I look forward to doing business with you again!

Keith, I want to thank you for all your hard work in helping me during the purchase of my first truck. It really was a great experience, especially considering I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. Your willingness to help both myself and my wife, Tiffany, through the process really made everything that much easier. I saw the truck on your website and immediately knew I had to have it, and my wife agreed. From there it wasn’’t long until I was the proud owner of a new truck. Your combination of fair prices and customer service are second to none, and I would gladly refer anyone I knew looking for a quality vehicle to Brown Motor Cars. I want to personally thank you for helping me through this whole process from a distance, you promptly answered any questions I had along the way and it is that customer service that made me feel comfortable purchasing my new truck. I definitely look forward to do business with you again in the future. Thanks again! Cole Brotherson
