Dear Chris,

I just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for your honesty, dedication and for going above and beyond while selling me my car last week. I've always been wary of car salesman, often with good reason, but you've helped to redefine the stereotype. Thank you so much for answering all of my questions honestly, and making that multi-hour process to help me certified my car for me. You made it not as painful as it otherwise could have been. I'm happy with the car I purchased, and the purchase price was so very reasonable. That's a pretty ideal situation when it comes to buying a used vehicle, and it's all thanks to you. You can be sure that if I have any friends looking to purchase in the future, I'll be sending them to Pete's Car Sales, and telling them to ask for Chris. Thanks again.

"We wanted to share our fabulous recent experience at Pete's Car Sales. Chris is a true gentleman who located the car of our choice and we are extremely happy. His personal customer service is the best we have ever experienced ! The vehicles that he chooses are hand picked and they are immaculate with low mileage and no accidents. Everything that is everyone looks for when buying a pre-owned vehicle! We would highly recommend buying a vehicle from Pete's Car Sales. It's worth the drive to Dunnville ! Thank you so much Chris, you are awesome !

Dominic & Anna

"Purchased two vehicles from Chris. Great guy, will meet after hours. Only the best vehicles. Definitely worth a shot - don't take my word. Every vehicle is hand-picked, has some sort of warranty available. Great guy - keep up the great work!"

David Marino

"I purchased a vehicle here recently and I am so happy I did. The owner, Chris, is great to deal with - very honest and helpful and he stands behind his products. He hand picks the vehicles he sells and you can be assured that they aren't prior accident repairs or daily rentals but one owner vehicles. The SUV I purchased is in mint condition and the price was very good for the quality. The customer service is A1. I will recommend this place to any family or friend who is looking for a vehicle. This business has a great reputation for a reason - check it out!"

"I'm a strong proponent of buying local, and we had such a great experience with purchasing our 2005 Envoy from you a few years ago and it has been a great vehicle for us. It has 235km on it now and is still going strong! I know that you have quality vehicles on your lot and that you stand behind what you sell. As a local business owner myself, I understand the importance of standing behind what you sell and taking care of your customers, and I know that's the type of business that you operate."

"Your vehicles have always been top notch & your service is what other dealers are trying to match. It is good to see a father & son team work so well together especially with your combined focus on customer service backed up by a quality product"

John & Kathy Dunnett/Toronto, Ontario

"I wanted to send along this note to you and thank you for the fantastic service you extended me on my 2005 Limited Freestar. I searched all through Ontario for a good quality van at a competitive price. Little did I know that at Pete's Car Sales, I would find one of the best used car families in the business. The testimonials on your webpage are absolutely correct, not only do you offer excellent value with no hidden offer true customer service. The experience was well worth the drive! Thank you, I will be spreading the word to others, my brother should be calling you shortly. Best wishes & Merry Christmas to you, your Dad & your families.

Sincerely, Alan Redwood/Midhurst, Ontario.

"HONESTY..INTEGRITY..RESPECT..EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE....are the words that come to mind and best describe our recent experience with your establishment. Thank you for the exceptional customer service provided on May 28 when we first stepped foot onto Pete's Car Sales. No pushy sales person...No pressure...No gimmicks on pricing. Just a great Home-Grown business atmosphere where a hand shake still exists and means something, and pride in ownership is apparent and demonstrated. We would like to express our gratitude for going the extra mile and ensuring that everthing was right with our new Ford Explorer Sport Trac. Which we are really enjoying! We will definetely tell a friend, and so on and so on. No need for big expensive advertising, your reputation speaks for itself. First class bar none! We will definetely be back for our next purchase! Thank you Chris & Pete!"

Richard, Suzanne & Aaron Tisi/Welland, Ontario.

"Hi Chris & Pete, I was totally surprised when I received a card in the mail with a cheque in the amount of $500.00 enclosed with an explanation that an addition error was made on the sales contract. This is something that I may have not discovered, so I want you to know how much I appreciate it and your honesty & integrity. It was a pleasure doing business with you and you can be sure that my friends will hear about you as well. Thanks again, and by the way, I am enjoying the Alero. It's a great car!"

Norm Roy/Fort Erie, Ontario.

Hello Chris & Pete. Just wanted to say again thanks for all your help with finding my truck. I just love it!! I have received alot of remarks and looks, and I tell everyone where I purchased it. A few people wondered if I had won a lottery when I pulled up in my new vehicle. They were shocked when I said it was a 2006, people said it looked like it just came off the showroom floor. I said that's what you get when you buy small town with great people like you. Thanks again so much, I am really enjoying it and I will be back in the future when it is time again. A VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER!!

Sandra King/Dunnville, Ontario.

"Hi Chris & Pete. Just a note to say thank you for the gift certificate we received yesterday in the mail. That's good small home town business for you! Both of you have been more than helpful with us over the last couple of purchases and we greatly appreciate all you have done. Your personal attention and professionalism has not gone unnoticed. We will definetely be back! THANKS AGAIN!

Bob & Jodi Springer/Dunnville, Ontario.

"Hi Chris, I wanted to take a few minutes and tell you and your Dad how pleased I am with my 2004 Avalanch. Thanks for all your help in handling the transaction of my old truck. It is quite obvious why you people have been in business so many years. Thanks again! A VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER!

Paul Wood/Norwich, Ontario.

"Pete & Chris, just a few lines to let you know that once again it was a pleasure to do business with you. We have been a loyal customer for many years because of your excellent quality of service and we value your friendship. Thanks again!

Mel & Carol Brooks/Cayuga, Ontario.

"Hi Chris & Pete! Just wanted to take a minute and say thanks for having the new van ready & looking so sharp. It sure is a good feeling knowing everything was taken care of, and that you went beyond what other dealers would do. I guess that's why we came to you. If it were any other dealer, I would'nt have felt comfortable letting my wife pick the vehicle up, but I had no hesitation because I knew it was all handled and that there wouldn't be any problems. We couldn't be happier with our purchase! There will be no guessing where we go for our next vehicle and where we send more of our friends and relatives. Thanks again guys!!

Mike & Sharon Butler/Dunnville, Ontario.

"Chris..... Sorry we couldn't make it to your open house on the weekend. I want to pass along my congratulations on 50 years of service which is great and really something to celebrate. It's not easy for a small business to reach such a milestone but from my own past experiences with Pete's Car Sales, it's really no surprise. The knoweledge, personal care & exceptional service that you and your Dad provide is really second to none and undoubtedly the reason for your success. Congratulations again and best wishes for many more years of service because I look forward to doing business with you again in the future. I hope the day went well".
