What a wonderful experience for me!

Duluth, Mn
July 20, 2017

I brought my Toyota RAV4 in to see if they could get the tire indicate light off in the dashboard display. It had been worked on by other automotive places who couldn't get the light off. Even though Kolar wasn't sure either they gave it their best shot. The mechanic was great in explaining the problem to me. I had a dental appointment and their shuttle service was great getting me to my appointment on time and then picking me up. I was so impressed with the kindness of everyone. I'm now trying just taking my negative cable off the battery overnight. I did this at the mechanic's advice. I hope this works! What a wonderful experience for me! Thanks to the service team at Kolar!

I had an excellent car buying experience here!

Exceptional Service

I should have actually posted a comment on the exceptional service we received from Neil. He is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. I know, without doubt, we will be generously taken care of throughout the time of our lease. You guys have a great staff!! Keep it up!

This level of service is uncommon and needs to be recognized

Davenport, Iowa
July 16, 2017

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 before I could get the door open. Within 3 minutes he had a mechanic to our car. The mechanic needed to pull the car into the shop. We went into the waiting room expecting a wait. Within 10 minutes the service writer came and got us and said everything was fixed. It was a loose hose from the air conditioner. No paperwork was required. We were in and out in less than 15 minutes. This level of service is uncommon and needs to be recognized. I am sorry it happened so fast I did not even get anyone's name. Thank You, Dan

Impressed with Service Department

Grand Rapids, Mn
July 18, 2017

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 efficient. Thank you for such a quality visit, it is much appreciated.

We knew that our next car would be through Kolar Toyota!

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 or a promotion!

Wonderful Experience

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.

We feel like we were treated like royalty

Duluth
January 9, 2017

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 feel like we were treated like royalty. Every person in the Duluth Hermantown location treated so great-also, our daughters car was covered in ice. The man in the garage(i didnt see a nametag) went the extra mile to get all of the ice off of her car after he installed the new battery. THANK you. He only stated he was on "light duty" And he was happy to help out- also 3 people asked if we were being helped, Thanks Toyota Hermantown. Its nice to be taken care of and as a 4 car Toyota family. I am pleased and feel safe to know the service of our vehicles is in great hands! Sincerely, Barbara,Bill, Will and Nina Pelton

Not pushy, good attitude, very honest and just fun working with!

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. She went through every option on my vehicle and showed me how everything works! She made sure my highlander had everything I asked for. The dealership did not have my SUV in stock so she went right to work on finding one for me. Not only did she find any one for me she found my number one choice and had it here in a couple days. She definitely went above and beyond! I will be recommending everyone I know looking for a vehicle to Kolar and to be asking to work with Shannon. She is by far the best in the area! Thank you so much for making my experience a great one!

What a pleasure!

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. I feel Corey has always given great service advice and I always drive away with confidence that I received only work that was needed and nothing more. It's because of these 2 individuals that I would consider purchasing another vehicle from your dealership

Loyal Customer

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.

Friendly, Not Pushy!

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!

Great Customer Service

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. Shannon showed me the operations of the Rav4 and then took me through the store and introduced me to the service and parts department as well as Tom the sales manager. Great people to work with. Need a vehicle, I recommend Shannon at Kolar.

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 you're looking to buy a car, I would highly recommend Shannon!

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 hit the road and give it a spin. About 20 minutes later I was handing him a check to stave off another car shopper who had his eyes greedily on "my" new ride (-; I picked my new *sizzling crimson* colored SUV on Wednesday and I could NOT be more happy/pleased/satisfied with not only my phenomenal new vehicle, but with Todd's professionalism, affable demeanor and Kolar Toyota's staff in general for helping make my car-buying process seamless! THANK YOU THANK YOU, yay!! (-: (-:

purchase of a 2012 RAV4

August 9, 2015

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 RAV4 we told Neil that we were interested in finding a car for our son. Neil found at least 4 cars for us to look at and we ended up buying another car a 2010 Camry XLE

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!

Kolar Toyota aims to please

June 28, 2015

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 interest rate for our payment plan and quickly and efficiently completing our purchase paperwork. Al took the time to explain the vehicle features to us, and taught us how to use them. He went out of his way to set up my cell phone to sync with our new vehicle. We are very happy with every aspect of our purchase.

Purchase of Rav 4

September 9, 2015

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 others.

Sunny side of the street

Duluth, Mn
April 27, 2015

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 on new Rav4s I happened to the Kolar used inventory. There I saw a low mile Highlander. Despite my reservations (as stated earlier, I was not financially positioned as yet to purchase ANY car) I contacted the dealership. Shortly Neil e-mailed me. Over the next two days Neil encouraged me via text message to come in a look at the vehicle. I did so at my earliest opportunity and Neil took me for a test drive. His knowledge of the Highlander was extensive. He was easy-going and not at all aggressive or pushy. Over the next couple of days he worked very hard to get me into this car. Through some fortuitous events we came together and made it happen. Three days after my test drive I received the keys to my new ride. Neil was as happy for me as I was for myself. To have a reliable, beautifully equipped, near-new condition automobile was a dream I thought unattainable - at least for the foreseeable future. Thank you Neil and everyone at Kolar for getting me to the sunny side of the street!

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 when we were ready to buy. We are very happy with the whole experience.

Kolar will be our dealership of choice from this point onward!

March 16, 2015

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!

We left feeling very happy with our purchase.

March 25, 2015

We live over 100 miles from this Dealership. We used the internet to look and see what different Dealers had on the lot. Kolar definitely had the best selection. We drove to Duluth to test drive some Trucks. We found two that we liked and Mark helped us narrow it down to the one we bought. We talked about the plus and minuses of each truck. Mark was really nice to talk to and he has a great smile and laugh. Mark made us feel that we could email or call with any questions. We left feeling very happy with our purchase.

THANKS MARK AND KOLAR!

April 2, 2015

Truly enjoyed the entire process of buying a new car. Knew very little about Toyota but felt very comfortable making the purchase due to the salesman Mark. He explained all features of the car and did not pressure us to buy. Will certainly share a recommendation to friends about him, even though he is a Bulldog hockey fan . Will enjoy this purchase for years to come THANKS MARK AND KOLAR!

Service was better than I expected it to be

My wife and I were very pleased with the salesman Don Gustafson. He was very knowledgeable and proficient. He was respectful of us when we needed to discuss numbers. Service was better than I expected it to be.

I've bought three cars at Kolar in the past 13 months counting my son's and what I like about Kolar is the kindness and service I receive and knowing you have my back. By the way, I found my spare key :-)

Great Service!!

I purchased a Prius from Kolar a few years ago. I loved the car, but it did not do well in the winter conditions of northern Mn. It wasn't until the 3rd winter, that I finally traded it in. The ONLY reason I waited so long was because I didn't want to leave the service dept. at Kolar. I have had many cars over the years, and have had the BEST service at Kolar. Cory, in your service dept is OUTSTANDING. I will recommend Kolar to friends and family looking for a new car, and let them know about the GREAT service I received there.
