    terrible service
    by shopper from minnesota | August 23, 2014

    Let me start by saying this place looked very promising online! (great prices for good reliable used cars) WRONG! My first indication that buying a car here would be a mistake was the customer service. The younger girl behind the desk was rude , impatient , and made it seem as if it was physically painful to do her job. the older of the two women was much nicer but had zero knowledge of the lot she was working for. I didn't interact with any of the other employees but not for a lack of trying (on the phone, busy , etc. ) The second hint was that many of the cars on this lot were advertised as running , and despite the mark up for high millage cars I was willing to check it out. One of the only two cars they let us start, not drive, had no battery life at all. The second had a very loud exhaust and we couldn't test the way it runs because it was parked in. The second car wasn't at all a problem but just frustrating. In regards to the first try I guess I'm just wondering why they would have even handed the keys over in the first place knowing it didn't run and knowing that we had a few other cars I wanted to see and that they closed soon. Overall this place needs an attitude adjustment and a revaluation of the prices.

    Me and my family have bought 4 cars from here
    by Allison zollinger from North saint paul, mn | August 10, 2014

    Me and my dad have bought a few cars from this place. Only had to do minor repairs to a couple of them. Always have been cheap and affordable. I recently had a baby and need a bigger car so I'm selling mine and bobs auto ranch is the first place I'm going to buy a car. They have a great selection of cars.

    Unique car buying experience
    by Bueller from Plymouth, MN | August 09, 2014

    The most unique car buying experience we ever had. They didn't hound us at all as we walked around the lot looking for the cars I had seen online and was interested in looking at. When we had picked out the one we were most interested in, we went into their office. Bob confirmed the choice we had made was the better choice of the two. We were given the keys to take a test drive without even being asked for name, ID, license, or anything. After test driving, my wife an I had a quick, private chat about what we would be willing to pay for it and what we really wanted to pay for it. We went back to make an offer and before I could even make an offer, Bob said I can let it go for $X, which was exactly what my wife and I had agreed we wanted to pay for it. We did later find one issue with the vehicle that I had missed during my inspection, but it was pretty minor and I still felt like we saved probably 35% over what it would have cost from a dealer. It's several years later and 42,000+ of mostly kid-driven miles and I still have the car. Best car deal of my life. I would definitely go back. As others have mentioned, YOU need to check the car over before you buy. If you want the "normal" car buying experience, this is probably not the right place for you.

    not worth the time!
    by zuma717 from minneapolis,mn | May 20, 2014

    I saw a car online, and went to see it. The lot seems like a horror movie scene. All cars are in horrible condition. Rusty and old.

    Good experience
    by CSM1 from St. Paul, MN | April 10, 2014

    No frills auto sales but great prices. Bob's doesn't have layers of management. Therefore he can keep his prices much lower than the big dealerships. Nothing fancy but they're honest, down-to-earth people. Bob, or his son, Rob, is who you'll deal with.

    Bob's Auto Ranch
    by Kevin F from Wyoming, MN | February 18, 2014

    You need to review inventory on website first. Inspect for leaking fluids after test drive. Staff was friendly and polite. Fair pricing for minor repairs that will be needed on cars. Low cost cars are available.

    Didn't get the information I needed. The only email that was sent to was "it's still here". I asked for quite a bit more information

    Used Car search - Bob's Auto Ranch
    by Vicki from Mpls, MN | November 22, 2013

    The site was easy to use. My inquiry was responded to promptly. I ended up buying something different, but the communication here was great.

    Satisfied custmomer
    by Don from Stillwater | September 22, 2013

    The folks at Bob's Auto Ranch treated me well. They showed me cars in my price range, and told me straight up which cars to look at and which ones to steer away from on the lot. I explained my needs and they listened The car I got had a little rust damage on sides and one floor panel but not many issues and I drove it all over the western and southwestern U.S. this summer.
