Winnisquam Auto

We have been in business for over 20 years. I started because of the experience I had buying a used car 20 years ago and I believe all customers should be treated the way I would want to be treated as a customer.

    I was looking for a 2008 Toyota Matrix, and even though I live 3+ hours away, after seeing their generally positive rating on-line, I went to Winnisquam to check out a car, which I ended up buying.  In 40-odd years of used car ownership, best experience ever with a used car dealer.Friendly, straightforward, absolutely no pressure, totally professional.  They made it so easy.Had a minor issue come up right at the end of the 30-day warranty period, and they took care of it no questions asked.  I would buy another car there in a heartbeat.

    Stopped by to look for a second vehicle. Met with the owner, John. 20 minutes for paperwork and I'm all set. This dealer is AWESOME!!!!!!!! With good credit I was able to sign and drive. Payments at $103 per month!

    I've bought two cars from John over the last few years. Very satified with the cars, no issues, low payments. I would buy cars from Winnisquam again in the future.

    This car dealership is by far one of the best I've ever dealt with. We had already shopped several places for a new vehicle to accommodate our growing family before deciding to take the drive to Winnisquam Auto. In my opinion it was well worth the trip, and would still have been even if we lived twice as far away. When we arrived we were promptly greeted by the owner, John. He was extremely friendly and helpful as he showed us several vehicles we had looked at online. He didn't immediately steer us to cars out of our price range, like most car salesmen tend to do. His upbeat and positive attitude was appreciated, and he promptly set us up with a car to test drive. We fell in love with an adorable mazda that was amazingly well priced. John brought it in to the shop for a once over and inspection before we did the paperwork and let us know that even though the tires pass state inspection (and easily had another 5-10k left on them), they didn't meet their high standards. He told us he would put new tires on it for us! We were already set on buying the car, mind you! When does that ever happen at a dealership? The entire financing process was easy and quick. They were accurate, honest, and straightforward. There weren't any games with numbers or other funny business you so often find at used car dealerships. We felt confident in our purchase and our financing, which was done through a local reputable credit union. A week later we came back for the new tires and had noticed a little noise when we went over bumps during the preceding week. We told them about the problem and it was found and fixed, no hassle and no charge. They stand behind the quality of their vehicles like no place I've seen before. Overall, we had a positive experience and it is very clear that they value their customers and hold themselves to the highest standards of good business conduct. We will not hesitate to come back and purchase our next vehicle here in the future. In fact, I can guarantee you'd be hard pressed to convince my husband to buy a car elsewhere after the service we have received at Winnisquam Auto.

    Just bought my 08 jeep liberty here! Quick and painless, low payments, and great customer service! Love my new car, and they help you if you have any problems or questions! John the owner makes sure that you are comfortable in what your looking for and strives to help in any way he can! You can tell he definately takes pride in the cars he sells and makes sure you are taken care of! Would definately recommend them to anyone looking to buy a vehicle!

    Needed to purchase a car for my Norwich College student who is now in the Vermont National Guard.  Flew in from California to New Hampshire with a list of 9 dealers to visit.  John and his staff at Winnisquam earned our business.  Cars are all visibly marked with the price.  John was there after we had comfortably looked around.  Test drove two Subaru Outbacks, John pulled the carfax on both.  Was amazed at the clean car history on the vehicle we selected, John told us he does a lot of research to get clean vehicles to offer at his lot. Price was excellent value on Kelly Blue Book.  Agreed on final price and completed the sale.  Was traveling in to Vermont the next day, so requested that John have the Title sent to his office, he told us it should be there by 2:00 and would contact us.  Got his call about 1:15 letting us know it had arrived, swung by and picked up our vehicle.  It had been detailed again and was ready to go.  We visited 5 dealerships before choosing Winnisquam.  Very happy with the Subaru, and very happy with the service.  Feel we were treated honestly, received full disclosure on the vehicle, and that Winnisquam really tries hard to get good cars and offer them at fair prices.  Would highly recommend John and his staff!

    I have bought two cars here now (2009 Volkswagen Rabbit, and my newest car, 2008 Tacoma) and all I can say is wow. John the owner really knows his stuff and how to work with banks. He gave me a great trade in deal on my Rabbit, and I drove away in the Tacoma the next day. I got a lower interest rate and a great low payment. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I almost NEVER write reviews, but I felt compelled to really tell people about this place. My girlfriend will be going here as well as soon as she is ready for a new car. Thanks again guys!

    John sold me a 2007 Yaris.  It is in very good mechanical condition.  It was a fair price and they gave me a limited warranty.  I would recommend and do business with them again.

    I have bought two used cars from Winnisquam Auto and have had great luck with both. John the owner has a tremendous knowledge of cars and what to look for when he buys them for his lot. Just talk to the guy for ten min. and that will be evident. John the salesperson knows his stuff too. Just an over all great reliable place to buy used cars. I have done my research and read hundreds of reviews and took a chance on this place two years ago with a 2002 ford ranger for my sons first vehicle. Had a few minor things that needed fixing but has run great ever since. No rust on any major parts even the frame is in good shape. The spare tire wheel was the only rusted out part under the car. Just bought a Honda CRV for my daughter and again running great. They fixed the few things we found wrong with it. Broken door lock and there was a low tire. They put four new tires on it for free! I never thought I would utter the words " I trust this used car dealer" but I do find myself saying them with this place.

    OK, so I never thought I'd write a 5 star review for a used car dealership. I mean c'mon.. *maybe* I'd give 4 stars for an exceptional experience where I was served fresh sushi as I filled out some paperwork and got a neck massage as I was sitting in finance. But 5 stars?Well, John and his team at Winnisquam sure won me over. Not only did I get a phenomenal deal on the exact car I was looking for, but John, the owner, struck me as a very down to earth, hard-working and honest guy. And in the end, he proved that's exactly who he is.Before my test drive, John was up front about an issue on the car that he was going to address. I appreciated the full disclosure. It ended up taking a bit longer and costing him more money than he'd anticipated. He kept me in the loop and the deal we struck remained the same despite the additional cost he incurred.Michelle, who handled our financing was professional and very helpful. She had everything prepared so when we got there, we were in and out in less than 25 minutes. I don't think I've ever been in and out of a car dealership in less than two hours when buying a car before this.The next time I'm in the market for a used car, Winnisquam will be the first place I look. It was really a pleasure dealing with them and well worth the hour drive from Southern New Hampshire.
