ORV-King Ranch
by Orv from Dumont, MN

This is the second vehicle we have bought here and everyone was so courteous and helpful. You have a beautiful facility and it's always so clean and the service department is great.

Buying a new car
by Larry from West Fargo, ND

Everyone is always friendly and knowledgeable, and does a great job of finding the vehicle you want at a fair price.

No-one is easier to work with than Nelson Auto
by Joel Johnson from Inver Grove Heights, MN

I live in the Twin Cities but choose Nelson Auto Center because of the easy and enjoyable process. Everyone I dealt with along the way was helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. I've recommended Nelson to several other people who have also made purchases and have raved about the service and easy of transaction even though the dealership is over two hours from the Twin Cities. I will definitely purchase more cars from Nelson Auto Center.

SALES & FINANCE
by Sherry from Fargo, ND

Found a used Hyundai Tuscon that had all the features plus low mileage that I was looking for at Nelson Auto Center in Fergus Falls. After checking customer satisfaction reviews, vehicle history report, consumer reports as to the make, year and reliability of the vehicle as well as dealer reviews, I decided to drive from Fargo to Fergus to test drive. The vehicle surpassed my expectations and knew it was the one. The whole process of buying my vehicle, from the sales person helping me, to finance for paper signing, was the smoothest I had ever experienced. The facility was neat, clean and has all the services a person would need in maintaining a vehicle.
