    Of course after reading reviews I wasn't too sure about this place, but I was still interested in a specific car after seeing it online. The car runs great, the only thing from making it perfect was the slight body damage. Not really an issue and not really noticeable so overall the car is great. They were friendly and helpful at Bob's and honest through the whole process. I was able to get financing easily and through a credit union with low interest. Overall, just be smart and thorough during the test drive and before you sign or pay for anything and make sure to get the car checked out before you complain down the road (pun intended) about buying a lemon.

    I woldnt buy from this place
    by jay from Forest Lake, MN | June 12, 2013

    I know several people who claim this place ripped them off. "buyer beware", is the common shield for deflecting negative comments tward lack of honesty and quality of product. I wonder how many vehicles they have that are rolled back about 50k or more. I know a couple buddies have got burnt, and with the auto ranch troll on here commenting on everyones comments in fear that the word might get out. Just makes me laugh even more. Examples you might ask, a buddies tranny dropped after he put 10,000 miles on a 2005 impala, as soon as I got in and read the mileage I knew something was off about the purchase. Maybe I am wrong, but a car with 70k should not drop a tranny.

    Cheap car bonanza
    by Dirt poor shopper from Stillwater,mn | May 09, 2013

    I've bought a few cars from these guys and when buying always check their website. Most of their cars have at least something minor wrong with them. But thats kinda expected for cars that are so cheap. Bring a mechanic or get it checked out at a shop worth the 50 bucks. Because they arn't going to always tell you everything thats wrong with them. But you can find some very good deals here.

    I by many cars from bob.s. first one was on 1990. From that time, many more.if you are buying a used vehicle, you should be sure you check it out first.last purchase 2002 Nissan. 200k, runs very good.even if they check them out. Still a used vehicle and any thing could go wrong.

    DO NOT BUY HERE!
    by AMC1991 from St. Paul, Minnesota | January 19, 2013

    About 5 months ago I purchased a truck from Bobs and have had nothing but problems with it, prior to buying the truck I asked multiple times for inspection and carfax information and got the run around from the dealer every time and eventually was told that I would receive the carfax after purchasing the truck. After having problems three and a half months after purchasing the truck I contacted the dealer explaining the problems I had been having, the dealer simply responded with "Good luck with that" and hung up without any offer to even look at the truck. I've had this truck for 5 months and have dumped thousands into just having it fixed. Save yourself the time and trouble of even looking at vehicles from these guys.

    Five vehicle purchased from Bob's Auto Ranch!!
    by Husband and Wife from Shoreview, MN | January 05, 2013

    Through the years, we have purchased five vehicles from Bob's Auto Ranch and are preparing to buy another for an upcoming newly licensed driver. The Ford Ranger which we purchased was in such good shape and so affordably priced that the banker financing the vehicle for us actually came out to the lot to ensure that it was the real deal! We appreciate that we can stroll the lot without high pressure sales tactics and that the price is clearly stated on each windshield. Test driving is also no pressure and we are allowed to drive as many vehicles as we are interested in. As stated in other comments, a used vehicle is a used vehicle, and we don't look for a detailed previous owner's history to base our purchase on. It is always helpful to either be knowledgable about cars or have someone with you who is, and that would be true anywhere that you go. We have referred many, many people to Bob's Auto Ranch for value pricing, good selection and ease of purchase. Bob's is a no frills business, so if you are looking to be pampered in pink, pay a couple grand more for your vehicle and go to a dealer and help defray their expenses for their large over head costs by paying more!

    horrible customer service!!
    by disappointed from MN | November 19, 2012

    I was interested in a particular vehicle, but would have to drive 3 hrs to come and look at it, so i've called a couple of times and asked as many ques as possible, that I could think of at least. The answers were very vague, so I called another day and talked to someone else asking if they could text me a few more pics to see what the inside looks like and the front end because they are paint chips off and I wanted a better view...the guys said no problem on fri. am and by Mon still no pics. So I called again and asked for them and was given the phone to Bob, and he basically told me the "I don't have time for that", "I've told you all I could if you want to come and see it, you can test drive it", I said well, I"m so far away I just want to see more before I make the drive, he says, "well, there's nothing more I can do for you"!! Really?? That's how you want to sell cars?? Horrible customer service, I will never give them any of my business and I will make it know on every review site at my poor experience. If they are this bad on the phone, can't imagine what it would be like had I bought something and been lied too, by his very vague answers. He wasn't even willing to try everything out (all the features) to make sure they worked, even though they are advitising it as such!! Sooo very disappointed, but thankful I saw their true colors before any purchase was made!!

    Love My Car
    by Rosie the Rivitor from Ramsey,MN | September 29, 2012

    I am not an employee or a friend of Bob's. I am a customer just like anyone else looking to buy a used car. I bought a 1998 Toyota Corolla from Bob's Auto Ranch recently. They were great to work with. They allowed me to take the car to a mechanic to have it checked before purchasing it. They even allowed me to put money down to hold it until my mechanic could look at it. They held it for 3 days for me. The car checked out great. The purchase agreement stated as is. I had no problem with this after having it checked out professionally. I see people giving Bob bad ratings over buying a car from him. All I have to say is did you have it checked before you purchased it???? When buying a used car... Its buyer beware and its up to you to be your advocate to make sure your getting a square deal... No business is perfect stuff just happens.

    Good Service
    by Jalene from Maple Grove, MN | May 22, 2012

    I was looking for a used car and easily found one. Bob's Auto Ranch contacted me a few times to allow me an opportunity to test drive the car. Unfortunately I changed my mind in the process, but that is not a reflection on Bob's Auto Ranch.
