"The last 3 months i have been looking for a Chrysler 300s with the hemi, i finally settled on Eckert auto sales to buy a 2014. Tina made the purchase an easy decision, i love the car and believe i got what i paid for. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a used car to visit Eckert auto sales. I live in Toronto and went to Barrie for this purchase due to the quality of their used cars and their excellent service and pricing."

"After being let down from the bigger dealers here in Barrie I decided to check out Eckert. I was aknowledged right away after I viewed some of the trucks they had on their lot. Tina went out of her way to find me financing  and within a few days I was driving my ( new to me) Silverado. Excellent customer service!!!!!"

"We purchased a 2012 Impala at a great price. It was brought completely up to standard mechanically and safety-wise. It also looked beautiful! We felt we were important customers throughout the process which was efficient and painless. The warranty is excellent."

"Purchased a vehicle in November 2016. It was a pleasure to deal with Tina. Everything went quickly and smoothly. I decided to wait and write a review after I had the vehicle for some time. First and foremost, at first, it was said the tires that were currently on the vehicle were in good shape, which in turn, they were not and Tina quickly advised that they would be purchasing brand new tires for me. Greatly appreciated, great customer service. My only issue that I've just now noticed is that I had asked if the vehicle I was purchasing was rust proofed, which I was told it did not look like it was. I asked if underneath the car had any rust to which I was told underneath the vehicle was black and no rust was noted. I have had my car taken to the mechanic for oil changes and upon it being lifted up, sure enough, there is rust all underneath the vehicle. Maybe this is something I should have looked into myself, but did not as I am not mechanically inclined and would have no way of checking the underneath myself. As much as I would love to recommend buying a vehicle from Eckert's, I would advise that maybe having the vehicle checked over by your own mechanic within the 30 days or 1000km warranty they provide to give you piece of mind. I take full responsibility for not doing my due diligence as I was in a crunch, but I would suggest anyone purchasing a used car (whether it be Eckert's or somewhere else) to do your homework and get it checked. Overall, good customer service!"

"I purchased my 2014 Ford Mustang and I love the car.  I had a minor pinion seal leak at the differential and at the time I called Tina.  They warranty all their vehicles for 30 days or 1000 km.   I was advised to bring the vehicle into their dealership and they would make the repair.  I live in London which makes this a problem since I wasn't local to Barrie.  An arrangement was made to have it fixed in London and they were going to help me out with the cost of the repair (which they didn't have to do).  As it turned out, the powertrain was still under warranty with Ford and will be fixed at no cost.  I would recommend Eckert Auto Sales without hesitation.  "

"I was wary of buying a new car and I was wary of doing financing. So many friends have been burnt by dealerships with hidden costs and high financing rates. Buying a new car from Tina was felt like I was buying it from a family member- She encouraged me to go for a long test drive and really get a feel for the car- She was incredibly helpful with setting up the financing and explaining the details to me. Eckertauto is a hidden gem of car dealerships: a family running an honest business. As long as Eckert is open- I will buy, and encourage my friends to buy, from them. "

"Recently purchased a 2008 KIA sportage. Really happy with the vehicle. Tina made the purchase smooth and easy. Tina was encouraging but not pushy, helped us get the financing that we needed. Having to take extra time getting additional paperwork together, to get an approval, which we appreciated. This is the second vehicle we have bought from Eckert. previous vehicle lasted forever with only general repairs, as with all vehicles. Tina is friendly and approachable .Overall I recommend Erckert Auto, well priced used vehicles. Clean, well maintained used vehicles. Will return again once needed. Robyn K and Keaton L "

"Just finished purchasing a Nissan from Tina & Will.There were a couple of hurdles Tina had to overcome to secure the financing but she did what others could not.I was impressed by her knowledge of warranties and purchase a 2 year drive train addon which gives me more peace of mind.
I thought the all season radials on the car were fine but Will realized only snow tires would do and added a set with no discussion or price adjustment.
How many car dealers would have done that?
I would reccomend Eckert and will without hesitation!

"This is an update to my recent purchase of an 08 Saturn Astra, after I got the car I drove it for a about two weeks, and first of all it's an awesome car, it's clear that they only sell cars in great condition, I've really never seen a 7 year old car that looks 2 years old, With such a good sticker price. Anyways, I called them with a few minor issues that I wanted to have them look at, and due to a few mistakes on my part missing scheduled appointments I went a little over the warranty km's, needless to say I was a little concerned but they said no worries we want to look at it. It really showed that they care about what their selling and more importantly that whoever buys it is happy. Well after they fixed it all up, ( like I said minor issues) the repairs were better than I expected, and my car came back to me cleaner than I brought it to them. I'm very happy to have walked into Eckerts, I don't care what year my car is, it drives brand new to me, and what is also important when you buy a used car is the service after you leave the lot, some dealers would forget about you, but Eckerts did not, I felt like I bought a Ferrari from them, but it's just the way treat all their customers. If your looking for a great car at a great price, maybe a Xmas gift for yourself or someone, you won't regret going to Eckerts, I've bought many used cars in my life and have never returned to a single dealer, I will return to Eckerts. Thanks again for the awesome car and the amazing service. "

"Very honest people. they tell all the facts about the car they sell. deal with Tina while buying your car. you will drive off the lot with 100% satisfaction with what you get for your money. their pricing is reasonable. they make sure you get decent product for the money you spend. its a business so they will make some profit too but they are not greedy and not over priced compared to others I will recommend this dealership to friends and family.

"Tina and Will were great in helping me find a new ride. I smashed my car on last snowstorm of 2014. Eckerts was the place I used to replace it. Upon receiving my e-mail Tina called as soon as they arrived home from holiday. Hadn't expected a call until Monday but Sat. evening Tina contacted me. Opened up on Sunday to show me some vehicles. purchased a 2008 chev. equinox and have been happy with all the great service. They sure like to keep their customers happy. I would highly recommend Eckerts auto sales to all my family and friends. "

"I bought a '06 Dodge Ram from Eckert Auto in October. The price was better than I had found at other dealerships. The sales staff were professional and friendly. When I found a problem with the ride of the truck they worked to resolve it, and did. Eckert auto stands behind the vehicles they sell in a way I have not experienced before at any other dealership. When the time comes for another truck I'll visit them. "

"We picked up a Jeep compass 2008 on Monday Oct.7th. Several days latter I had a problem starting the car. They suggested I bring it in. They looked at it immediately and found no problem. Tina then instructed me on starting a manual transmission. It had been along time since I,d driven one and things have changed problem solved. We love the car. The price was excellant. We will recommend Eckert Auto sales to our friends."

"I bought a 2004 Ford F150 FX4 in July of 2012. The truck is running great. I have only had to change the oil and keep it clean. This was a great buy. Good price and very nice people to deal with. When I need another truck I will be going to visit Eckert Autosales.

Keep up the great work.

"I purchased a certified vehicle from another Barrie used auto location in April of 2012. I had nothing but headaches with the car and the dealership. Within 9 months, I replaced the brakes, a couple of clamps on the rad and at my first oil change, was told my differential oil was "mucky" and in desperate need of changing. Nice work by the mechanic and the dealer to milk me for money I don't have. Anyway, one evening I sat down on my laptop and started looking for and researching vehicles. I came across the Eckert Auto Sales website. I saw a vehicle that I was interested in and made an inquiry via email. Tina responded to that email within an hour, probably a half hour. My inquiry and Tina's response took place after they were already closed for the day. She did all the work necessary and got me approved for that vehicle the next day even with my credit history. Tina and Will went above and beyond for me after hearing the trouble I'd had at the other dealer the year before. I am very pleased with the service, the vehicles, and the care that I received while dealing with Eckert's. If you need a quality used vehicle for a really good price, I recommend Eckert's. Even a used car is a big investment to some people and Tina made me feel like I wasn,t wasting my time or money. Thank you Tina and thank you Will for taking care of me. I will definitely be spreading the word about Eckert Auto Sales. "

"I heard that Eckerts was now doing sevice work besides selling cars - so I brought my 2008 Dodge Charger to them to have it serviced. They did an oil change made some adjustments and now it it purring like a kitten again. I also needed new tires, and because of my trust in Eckerts I asked them for a referal. Tina and Will gave me the name of a reputable place; The Tire Depot. I went and got the new tires.

I will continue going to Eckert's with both my vehicles for all my service work in the future.

"Definately buy your vehicle from Eckert's. I bought a 2005 Jeep Liberty this summer(2012)and was completely satisfied from start to finish with the 'no pressure sales technique' and vehicle itself.

Tina helped us choose a vehicle that was appropriate to our lifestyle and circumstance. My husband who has pancreatic cancer and limited mobility LOVES the features of the Jeep Liberty. There are two handles to help get in and hold onto while in the passanger seat. The interior door handle is a raised plastic bubble shape which keeps his chemo/delicate skin and fingers safe. The back trunk area allows him to put his groceries straight into the back eliminating the lift in/out that a standard car demand. The back space is large enough for his wheelchair or the many bags of luggage that are required for all of us when he is hospitalized in Toronto. All these items are easily stored and removed because we do not have to bend down to take them in or out of a standard trunk.

The is alot of leg room and the seat base is straight so it does not cut into the back of his legs. The hood has and automatic lift ensuring it does not slam down on us when adding windsheild wiper fluid.

I particularly like the short dash as it allows me to position my GPS more effectively. Best of all, the Jeep is a 4 wheel drive which has been very helpful on those winter trips down the 400 to Toronto and our 17 year old daughter who is a new driver.

The whole experience of buy this vehicle was easy. Thank you Tina for listening to our needs then showing us the Jeep. Thank you Will for answering all our car care questions and being willing to help.

"We purchased our vehicle, a PT Cruiser, back in December from Eckert Auto Sales. Tina was amazing to work with. This was my first car I purchased and did not feel any pressure during the transaction. The service provided after the sale was excellent as well. "
