Guy was very patient showing me how to work everything in this new fancy car. Moving from a 2001 to a 2013, technology sure has changed. I was especially thankful that they let me bring my dog to the dealership and let her be inside while we completed the paperwork. She is a great dane, and I needed to see if she would fit in the car I was purchasing. A great experience all around. I would not hesitate to recommend David and Guy."

Abdul from Minneapolis, MN

"After this past winter, my husband and I knew we would be trading in my car for an SUV. We did our homework for a few months, and decided that we should rest drive a Grand Cherokee. I had a Commander in the past, so I was already partial to Jeep. We found a few options online and scheduled a test drive at Barnett in White Bear.  All I have to say is this was the best vehicle buying experience I've ever had. Our salesperson, Robert, was so down to earth, knowledgeable and not pushy at all. Bryan was also excellent in that he did everything he could to make the finance numbers work. While we were waiting for all the paperwork to process, other Barnett associates made a point to keep us entertained through small talk and sincerely expressed appreciation for our business. We definitely felt like the buying process was a mutual relationship and it was definitely a win-win situation for both parties. I'm absolutely loving my new Jeep Grand Cherokee!! Talk about luxury and function! Let's see this winter try to stop me from getting in and out of my driveway now!!

I highly recommend working with Barnett for your next vehicle purchase!"

Nicole from Vadnais Heights, MN
