Hi Everyone, my name is Pete Hammer and I've been with the Kolar Automotive Group my whole life! I got started in the business when we were located downtown on Superior St, washing cars on my summers off of school. My father David Hammer carpooled me to work everyday to wash "every" car on the lot. At the time he was the General Manager and now 1 of 3 owners. I invite you to give Kolar an opportunity to see what were all about. Stop in and see why we're so different from your average car dealership.

A week and a half ago my wife and I were traveling to Northern Ontario for a fishing trip in our new (1500 miles) Highlander. We realized that the passenger side floor was filling with water. It was almost 3/4" deep. We stopped on a Wednesday afternoon at about 4:30. The service man was at our car...

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with your service department, especially Ian! He and another gal (can't remember her name) have worked with me over the past two days to get a replacement key made and programmed for my Rav4. They have been patient, informative, helpful, friendly, and...

After Rob Shamblott sold us our Prius a few years ago, we knew that our next car would be through Kolar Toyota! We just purchased our 3rd car from them and Rob was the sales person for all 3. Couldn't be happier with the prices and service before and after the sale. Rob deserves a huge pay increase...

I've dealt with Kolar Toyota since I've move here in 2013. The Service Dept is outstanding! I ended up buying a brand new truck from Shannon Smith. Wonderful experience. I highly recommend this Company.

A couple of years ago my husband and I moved up to our cabin north of Duluth. We own 4 Toyota vehicles. With this last cold spell my daughters car has needed numerous jumps so we called to get a new battery as it was the original 2009 factory. When we dropped off her Yaris and the Tundra, and we...

I just purchased a new 2016 hybrid highlander at Kolar Duluth. Shannon Smith was my sale person and she was absolutely wonderful to deal with. She was not pushy, good attitude, very honest and just fun working with her. She made my experience so much better then any other dealership in the area....

I just wanted you to know what a pleasure it has been to come to your dealership since purchasing a Lexus RX 350 from Shannon Smith and then consulting with Corey Middleton about servicing the vehicle. I appreciated Shannon's low key approach, patience and her genuine interest in our vehicle needs....

At this time they are doing everything needed to keep me as a loyal customer. Candidly, I'm a loyal Toyota purchaser so a big aspect of having me as a repeat customer is I believe the Toyota product to be Superior.

Sales was friendly, not pushy. Seemed more interested in us getting what we want than making a sale. Made purchase experience great. Dealer is best I have ever felt with, no change required. But also excited for the dealership remodel!

We just leased a Rav4 from Shannon at Kolar. It was a great experience working with Shannon, no pressure. I just drove a couple of used vehicles and the new Rav4. Didn't have the color I wanted and Shannon went right to work on finding the right one for me and had it in just a couple of days....

I recently leased my first car with Shannon at Kolar! She was a fantastic sales woman! She took the time to get to know my tastes and preferences, and after test driving a few used vehicles had narrowed my vehicle search down to 2! Went with the 2016 Toyota Corolla and couldn't be happier! If...

Two weeks ago I contacted Todd Abrahamson to let him know I found myself in need of a new car as soon as possible. We set up an appointment for the following Saturday morning. When I arrived Todd greeted me with a smile, handed me the key to a gorgeous 2013 Toyota Highlander, and encouraged me to...

Worked with salesman Neil Larson. Neil was wonderful in answering all of our questions. When he did not know the answer he found someone who did. He did not try to hide anything. It was refreshing to work with such a caring salesman. He really made us feel that he was on our side. After buying a...

Wonderful! We will recommend Jim McMillion and Kolar to others

Thank you to Al Mathison and Kolar Toyota - I love my Highlander! After looking for a new vehicle for a couple of weeks I didn't think I would find one. As soon as I walked into Kolar it felt right. Friendly, professional service. I highly recommend Kolar!

When we decided to purchase our Highlander through salesman Al Mathison at Kolar, Al did a great job locating the vehicle we wanted in another part of the country, getting it to Duluth quickly and giving us a good price on our trade in. Lana and Damien were very helpful in getting us a good...

Recently purchased a Rav4 from Kolar Toyota. Very happy with the exceptional service from Shannon Smith. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She answered all of our questions. If she did not know the answer she looked it up. Could not be happier with Shannon. Would highly recommend her to...

My 20-year old Cadillac had long outlived its usefulness. Although I was not financially ready to purchase a new car I had begun the research process. I was very interested in a Toyota, having owned a very reliable and delight-to-drive Camry prior to the Caddy. While exploring pricing and options...

Recently made a purchase through Mark Larson. Our initial contact was "thinking of purchasing in the next several months" mode. Mark kept us in mind without any pressure, remembered our interests, and responded appropriately. He was friendly, professional, and made the process convenient for us...

We went to Kolar after a bad experience at another dealership. They were fantastic! We were treated with respect and we were impressed with the warmth and kindness our son and grandson received. Kolar will be our dealership of choice from this point onward!
