I have enjoyed the experience with Nelson and their great service in helping me buy a vehicle.  Everyone was great to work with and I felt like I was getting the best deal that was right for me!  - Morgan Sanstead - 12/12/19

by Orv from Dumont, MN

This is the second vehicle we have bought here and everyone was so courteous and helpful. You have a beautiful facility and it's always so clean and the service department is great.

Buying a new car
by Larry from West Fargo, ND

Everyone is always friendly and knowledgeable and does a great job of finding the vehicle you want at a fair price.

No-one is easier to work with than Nelson Auto
by Joel Johnson from Inver Grove Heights, MN

I live in the Twin Cities but choose Nelson Auto Center because of the easy and enjoyable process. Everyone I dealt with along the way was helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. I've recommended Nelson to several other people who have also made purchases and have raved about the service and easy of transaction even though the dealership is over two hours from the Twin Cities. I will definitely purchase more cars from Nelson Auto Center.

by Sherry from Fargo, ND

Found a used Hyundai Tuscon that had all the features plus low mileage that I was looking for at Nelson Auto Center in Fergus Falls. After checking customer satisfaction reviews, vehicle history report, consumer reports as to the make, year and reliability of the vehicle as well as dealer reviews, I decided to drive from Fargo to Fergus to test drive. The vehicle surpassed my expectations and knew it was the one. The whole process of buying my vehicle, from the sales person helping me, to finance for paper signing, was the smoothest I had ever experienced. The facility was neat, clean and has all the services a person would need in maintaining a vehicle.

Like a Family

by Michael Amundson from Henning, MN
November 26, 2016

Dave helped me determine the best way to go to get an updated vehicle. After considering all the options, I leased a new vehicle, and am extremely happy with it. All I had to do is sign the papers, and get some training on new vehicle operation, and I was down the road. Thanks to the whole staff at Nelson's

Leased a 2016 Ford Edge
by Ann and Dean from Fergus Falls
June 8, 2016

Dave Johnson did a great job helping us lease a 2016 Ford Edge. When I saw a sign in the dealership about leasing vehicles we asked Dave to explain leasing and we learned a lot. It became clear that leasing was the right deal for us. We drove four different vehicles and found the right one for us. Dave was very helpful in explaining the different features of the Ford Edge.

5.0 out of 5.0  Used Dodge Truck

by Military Service Member from Fort Bragg, NC | January 17, 2014
Dave Johnson handled the whole process with ease. Bought the vehicle through website from Nelson Auto. I have been a lifelong customer of Nelson Auto.. Currently in the military but would not buy a vehicle anywhere else. Facilities and customer service are second to none

It was a "WOW" experience! Dave J was salesperson

by Jeri Dawson from Alexandria, MN | November 6, 2013

I was extremely impressed with Dave Johnson as a salesman! A friend of mine has worked with Dave for many years and Dave has also earned my repeat business and referrals as well! This was the first vehicle I had to purchase by myself. I was treated with respect, he answered all my questions in a very professional manner and he made the whole experience of purchasing a vehicle for me fun! I had done some price shopping closer to my home and none of them came close to the prices at Nelson Auto Center. Let me say that purchasing a car or even to walk in to a car dealer was out of my comfort zone! Being a female, widowed and a sales person myself, I pay close attention to how I am treated! At another dealership closer to my home - it was not a good experience as I walked into that business - I was greeted with "can I help you find who you are looking for"? It wasn't that way with Dave at all! Dave greeted me with a smile and a handshake. So you can be assured that there will be alot of my widowed friends told about my vehicle buying experience with Dave as probably the best salesperson I have met! After the paperwork was done, Dave was waiting for me to explain everything in the car. I was especially impressed with the amount of time he spent doing that to make sure I understood everything - especially the cellphone part! As well as telling to call him if I have any questions. Dave went the "extra mile" as a salesperson. I can tell that he loves his job and does it well! I purchased a 2013 Ford Edge! Its awesome!

My 3rd King Ranch

by Jill Askelson from Detroit Lakes, MN | July 7, 2013

Thanks to Dave Johnson, Sales Manager at Nelson Ford, I am now driving a 2013 F-150 King Ranch pick-up. This is my third King Ranch and I have been more than pleased with each one. There are many vehicles out there, other than Ford, to choose from. The reason my husband, Bernie, and I have remained in Ford vehicles all these years is the tremendous service we get from the sales staff, like Dave, at Nelson Ford. Dave is truly a professional and walks you through the purchase from start to finish. He goes the extra mile to make sure that you understand the process and are happy with the purchase. If it were not for people like Dave at Nelson Ford we would probably not have been as loyal to the dealership over the years?which I might mention has been 20+ years. Not only does the sales staff do a tremendous job; after the purchase, the service department continues to maintain the integrity of Nelson Ford with prompt service attention. I am happy to say there have been very few repair glitches in our vehicles over the years. Most service has been routine and Bob and Kevin have always stepped up to the plate to take care of all of our service needs. Nelson Ford owners, Brent and Laurel Nelson, can take pride in knowing they have a staff that treats their customers as they would want them to be treated. Kudos to Dave and the rest of the staff at Nelson Ford.

Great Customer Service!

by Joe & Cindy Klimek from Clitherall, MN | June 13, 2013

As always a great purchasing experience with Dave Johnson. My husband and I both bought new vehicles in the past few months. We have been customers for years and work exclusively with Dave. Our neighbors, co-workers, and friends are also customers and work with Dave. He's very professional, honest and straight forward which is what we appreciate most. He has great integrity, plus a great smile! Always a good experience bringing our vehicles in for an oil change too.

Chad was outstanding in assisting us with our purchase. The entire team at Nelson is top notch, and go out if their way to make sure we, the customer, are satisfied!! Thanks Nelson Auto!!!

Chad is the best!
by Kim S. from Fergus Falls MN
August 2, 2016

Chad Swenson is always there for us. When we need a car he finds it for us. He seems to know what we don't or do want. Our daughter's car broke down in 2014 350 miles away while going to college. She needed a car immediately. He found us a car quickly and in no time we were hauling her new car by trailer to her. He recently found my husband a car. He notified us frequently telling us when cars were available and he found us one and also found us discounts. I highly recommend Chad and Nelson Auto Center.

5.0 out of 5.0 Dealing with Chad

by from Fergus Falls |

When ever we're looking for a different vehicle, we go to Chad. He knows what were looking for and what we can spend, and always has somthing in mind. Never has there been a problem, he always makes the transaction Painless! Thanks Chad!

Thanks for the Great Help!

by from Fergus Falls |

We had never looked into buying a new car. It has always been used for us. We felt it was time to get a new vehicle. My wife researched hour after hour and we narrowed it down to 2 different vehicles, one of them being the Ford Edge. She knew exactly what she wanted and Ford had the color she wanted as well. Chad Swenson helped us a great deal in making our experience a good one. We also were treated very well by the finance person who explained all our options. We look forward to using our new Ford Edge a lot. Thanks again to Nelson Ford for all their help.

Came into Nelson Ford to look for a truck. Found exactly what I have been looking for. I looked on a tuesday and drove it home on wednesday. Thanks to salesman Chad Swenson. Great service and knowledge of equipment. Thanks again Chad

Freindly and helpful service, professional By BLjohnson from Breckenridge, Mn. | March 27, 2013

 Chad talked me through the buying process and was very professional on how the buying process was going to go. My experience with Nelson's was great and look forward to buying my next vehicle from them.

FAST! Friendly Service

by from Fergus Falls, MN |

I walked into the building around 1pm-Chad Swenson (after a couple phone calls) knew exactly what I was looking for. Gave me the keys for a test drive, when I got back we talked numbers. I headed back to work while Nelson ran the financial stuff-including a FANTASTIC deal on my trade-in....At a little after 5pm I drove away in my new Escape! I was dreading the whole 'car shopping' experience. And it was painless! Fast! And there wasn't any pressure!! Thanks Chad! and Nelsons for really taking the horror out of wheeling and dealing!!

Jill from Dalton, March 5, 2013
Unbeliveable Great Service! Went in to get a Oil Change and Bought and New F-150 Pickup Truck. Wow Thank you Chad Swansen you and everybody @ Nelson Ford Rock!!!!

Donna , February 6, 2013
I purchased a 2011 Silver Ford Escape yesterday from Chad Swenson. He was friendly and patient. Besides finding me what I wanted. I wanted a sunroof. I know that are not that many out there, 6cyl and 4WD. Has lots of extras too so I am excited to go on a road trip & try everything out! Chad was not a "pushy" salesman(I tend to turn away). He kept me updated on what was available from the first time I test drove a '13 Escape and an Edge. Chad gave me all the information I needed to make my final choice. I get pretty attached to my vehicles so a difficult decion to give my old '05 Escape up. I feel I received fair treatment and a good deal. I have recommended Nelson Motors to my boss who is looking & not sure what she wants. Also to a co-worker. Thanks! I would come back again.

Once again, we are completely satisfied with our buying experience! We have always been treated like royalty at Nelson, and Trevor and the rest of the crew did a great job getting us into our new vehicle!

Great Transaction!!!
by Jerry D from Bagley Mn
February 4, 2016

I was quite pleased with my purchase of a new f-150 from Trevor Funkhouser. The transaction was handled entirely by phone including the installation of several items (running boards and box cover). When I arrived the vehicle was clean and options installed and all that was left was the paperwork which was quickly completed. It was well worth the 125 mile drive to do business at Nelson auto center.

Nelson Auto Sales

by from Park Rapids, MN |

I did a lot of online research to find the Ford Edge with the features I wanted. When our local dealer didn't come up with what I was asking for, Trevor at Nelson Ford did and was quick with tentative payment numbers based on what our dealer would have given us for trade in value. He had the lowest interest rates of all the dealers we talked to and was very quick with email responses to my questions. Thank you!

Awesome Experience all the way around

by from Bismarck, ND |

We recently purchased a F150 and couldn't be more pleased. We did everything online and through email and the vehicle was even better than expected. It was by far the easiest car buying experience we have ever had. Trevor was awesome, answering all of my questions and being super patient with my never ending inquiries. He found us the perfect truck at a fantastic price and we couldn't be happier. I will definitely recommend Trevor and Nelson Auto Center to anyone I know in the market for a new or next to new vehicle. Thank you Trevor for the outstanding customer service, patience, and fantastic vehicle. We love it!

Pleasant Buying Experience

By Bruce from Clitherall | March 27, 2013

 We recently bought a new Chrysler Town and Country from Nelsons in Fergus Falls and have to say that it was a great experience in ALL aspects. Trevor and Scott were very attentive to our vehicle needs. We were able to obtain a very fair trade in price on our used vehicle. It is good to be able to trade at "home" and take advantage of their service department when it is needed. Rick and the crew always go the extra mile for us.

Roger and Margo  January 28, 2013
We purchased a new 2013 Ford Edge from Nelson Ford Auto Center. Our sales consultant was Trevor Funkhouser. We have dealt with Trevor before and he makes the visit fun and stress free. When we were first thinking of purchasing a newer car we went to the Nelson Ford Web site. We found it to be very easy to navigate and fun to look through. They did a great job with that web site. Our intention was to buy something through Trevor and we made arrangements to meet with him. This is the fourth vehicle we purchased from Nelson Ford and the second one with Trevor as our consultant. Trevor offered detailed information about the vehicles we were interested in as well as alternatives. We test drove used and new. We even went over lease verses purchase. Trevor was very knowledgeable about all of the cars we considered. Every question was answered so we clearly understood the features on the different models. He found more than one vehicle with the features we liked. So the sale actually boiled down to color. We found we were treated fairly and with great respect. We were able to drive home with our new Edge that afternoon. Trevor has gone above and beyond our expectations to make sure we were happy with our purchase. He spent time with us to make sure we understood the new features on our 2013 Edge including Sync. He even set up our I phones and the presets for the radio. We felt a ease as he went over everything and answered our questions. His knowledge and friendly manner made our decision easy to buy from Ford. Nelson Ford and its service department has taken care of our needs and exceeded our expectations over the years we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. This is a great place to buy any vehicle. They have a huge inventory and really all staff are easy to work with. We look forward to our next purchase from Nelson Ford. Trevor we can't thank you enough we love our Edge.

Macon, December 16, 2012

Hi, I recently purchased a vehicle from Nelson auto, and I was working with Trevor. He made it extremely easy for me, he knew my time was limited and he did an excellent job on explaining everything that I needed to hear. I look forward to working with Trevor again when I am ready for another vehicle. Thank you.

Larry Schneeberger, December 3, 2012

"We had a great experience with our pickup purchase from Trevor Funkhouser at Nelson ford . I do not like to shop around when I buy a vehicle as we like to keep our business local but I do know we could not have been treated more fairly and  courteous  with great service, I would recommend Nelson ford to anyone."

 Rich B. ? - Jan 19, 2012

Nelson Ford exceeded our expectations in the leasing process of a new car. Trevor had all the answers to our questions and provided the proper information for us to make our decision. The remaining staff was also excellent. Will recommend to all.

Bill M ? - Jan 5, 2012

The experience of purchasing a new vehicle with Trevor and the team at Nelsons for the first time was very professional and curtious. I would recommend anyone looking for a new or used vehicle to stop in and give them the first chance, you will not need to go anywhere else. The time from walking in the door to driving out was incredible!!!

Nelson Auto a very good car buying experience
by Ray and Vicki from Fergus Falls Mn.
June 3, 2016

My wife and I stopped into Nelsons to just look at a Jeep Cherokee. We meet Mark Morris and he picked out the perfect vehicle for us just after answering a few of his questions. The whole staff was great from sales to financing to the accessories department, everyone knows their jobs and do them very well. They had our vehicle ready when promised. Thank you Mark and Nelsons for a good buying experience.

out of 5.0   Thank You.....

We recently purchased a "like new" Dodge Ram from Nelson Auto Center. A big Thank You to Mark Morris for your honesty, friendliness and professionalism, your are the best. Our whole buying experience from all the staff was great...Thank you...

by Bryant & Kayla from Davenport, ND | August 24, 2013
My wife and I had been looking for a Ford Edge for some time. We decided to call Mark Morris to see what he could do for us, and it was a great decision. I had heard nothing but good things from people about Mark and Nelson Ford. The whole process was very enjoyable and would do it over again anytime, thanks Mark we love our new Edge!

"I would like to note that Mark Morris was a pleasure to deal with, and is an asset to your staff.  Mark was not a high pressure salesman, and really worked with us to make sure we were happy with our purchase.  There was an auto start that was added to the car and that was also taken care of in a timely satisfactory manner.    I will definitely look to Mark Morris and Nelson Dodge the next time I am in the market for a new vehicle." 
Thanks again, Jim  January 15, 2013

"I just want to say what an awesome experience it was to purchase my 2010 Mercury Milan from Mark Morris. When I came to Nelson, I was looking to get out of my G6 and into something a little newer that got better mileage than my G6. After looking at the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, my heart was set on the Fusion. When asked what were something's I wanted in the car, I felt I was being picky because I'm still young enough that I love having my moonroof in the old car that I wanted it in my new one. I wanted it between 30,000 and 50,000 miles, because I felt it was low enough to still put into my budget and color, I didn't want black or red because of gravel and my yard having about 6 red vehicles in it. So I wanted either Silver, White or Blue.  Another thing was cloth interior, I'm not a huge fan of leather so cloth fits me better. When Mark called to tell me that they had picked up a Milan with a moonroof, cloth interior and Blue, I was excited! Sure, I know it wasn't a Fusion but it was the same car but different decals on it! When it came down to everything, I must say that Mark is one hell of a salesman! I am very happy with my choice in salesman and my new vehicle I purchased from Nelson Ford!!"
Sincerely,  Katie M. Boen - October 25, 2012

"I have found Mark and the Nelson dealership to be honest, fair and reliable when I have been dealing on many different purchases of automobiles. Mark's professional approach has made it a pleasure to buy a car. Mark and his bosses have helped my wife and I through some trying times with cars that have made ownership a problem. Because of Mark and the Nelson's dealership's integrity, I am very glad to recommend them to you."

Linda B Aug 11, 2011. About a week ago we purchased our very first new car, and the nelson experience was great. Everyone is so friendly and they remember you when you return and you are a person and not just an account number. Mark Morris is a excellent and very knowledgeable sales person. We went in on Friday and picked up our car on Saturday. Elliot did a great job of getting the paperwork done in a very timely maner. I can honestly say that we will be back for our next car or truck whenever that may be.

by from Ottertail, Mn |

We recently stopped in to check out out leasing options and left with a vehicle. Our experience was the best we have experienced. Jim Boid was very knowledgeable and worked hard to make sure we didn't waste time but got in and out in a timely manner. We look forward to our relationship with Nelson Ford during our lease! Thank you so much.....we are extremely happy with our new jeep!

Ford Edge

by from Miltona MN |

I recently purchased a previously owned Ford Edge. Jim Boid assisted my wife and I in this purchase. As a true Minnesotan he was outside in the cold wind and rain last weekend answering all our questions. Jim was very easy to talk to, was patient, fully informed me throughout the entire sales purchase. We were able to drive both on the highway and in town, to get a true feel for the vehicle. Elliot Thompson, the finance manager, answered all our questions and was extremely helpful as well. I was also impressed that Brent Nelson, the owner, was there on a Saturday and shook our hand after the purchase. My wife and I had several other dealership options much closer to our house; however Nelson Automotive Center had the best prices in this area. I will not hesitate to recommend referring friends, family, or strangers to Nelson Automotive Center in Fergus Falls. I will definitely purchase my next vehcile from Jim. Very Satisified!!!

First car purchase at Nelson

by from Underwood, MN |

We were pleased with our first experience and appreciate what we think is a very good value on a quality vehicle. Jim Boid was patient in listening to our numerous questions and did a nice job of explaining the features of our "new-to-us" vehicle. Thank you.

The best customer service

by from Detroit Lakes MN |

We had been looking for a new car (not aggressivly) and Jim Boid was our sales rep. He was very patient and not pushy at all! We finally found the car that we wanted and everything went very fast and smooth!! i couldnt have asked for a better company to buy a car from it was worth the hour drive. other salesmen were also very nice while we were waiting for our paperwork to go through! thanks again

Tim Oien, February, 2012

"We had been looking for the "right" pickup with great incentives for a significant amount of time. We had made multiple calls on pickups over a years' time to multiple dealerships with unsuccessful results either to the truck of interest being overpriced or ending up with a lowball trade in value. Then Jim Boid sent me an email on a truck that was a super deal, though that truck was gone when we came to Fergus Falls, Jim showed us a beautiful pearl white GMC that we fell in love with and thinking it was way out of our price range. The amount for our trade in was excellent and with all the rebates on that pearl white GMC it gave us the opportunity to buy it. When we came to purchase the truck was on a Saturday and all the great employees at Nelson worked at a great pace to help us make this purchase as quickly as possible (even though our kids were a terror). Jim worked very hard to make our purchase top notch and he succeeded at that with a very happy customer with a truck that exceeded our expectations. Thank you Jim Boid for taking care of all our needs and we will be back in the future for the wife's vehicle upgrade."

Bruce W Nilson, November 29, 2012

"My recent purchase of a vehicle from Nelson Auto Center and dealing with your sales person, Jim Boid, was a very pleasant and positive experience. I feel the price I paid for the vehicle I purchased was fair and the trade in price was also fair. You have a very welcoming facility and Jim did a great job!"

Stellar Experience

I purchased a 2016 Ford Explorer from Brian Quernemoen. I gave Brian the vehicle specs I was looking for on Thurs, he located the exact vehicle that day, and the dealership sent a driver to go retrieve the vehicle Friday to do the dealer trade. I showed up Sat and purchased the vehicle with no hitches. Brian was great to work with, the financing dept was a breeze, and the facilities at Nelson Auto are fantastic. I had a great buying experience and would recommend Brian and Nelson Auto Center to anyone looking for a different vehicle.

5.0 out of 5.0  Purchased 2014 GMC Acadia

by from Wannaska, mn |

We had been looking for a new vehicle for a few weeks. We were ready to purchase from a dealer in Grand Forks. But, when we got there- surprise- the vehicle they said they had, they didn't have. They had been saying for 2 weeks that it should be in. We were very disappointed. We searched online and found the vehicle at Nelson's Auto in Fergus Falls. We had never purchased on via online before so we were nervous. We called them and Brian was VERY helpful! It was late on a Friday afternoon, it would be a 4 hour drive. He verified the car was on the lot. It was- but needed to be prepped. He found a way to get it prepped and stayed late(passed their closing) to help us close the deal. The pricing was very fair. We LOVE our new vehicle. This dealership was easy to deal with and willing to work with us. I would highly recommend anyone to check this dealership out :)

  Wonderful service and care for our best.

by from Fergus Falls, Minnesota |

We are most pleased and happy with our 2012 Ford Fusion. It is delightful to drive and I never expected I would ever purchase a vehicle with a four cylinder engine. This certainly has exceeded my expectations. Brian Quernemoen was most helpful in purchasing the vehicle. In all the years in purchasing vehicles from Nelsons Auto, and maintenance of the same from time to time, we have been very satisfied with their service. Rick Anderson, one of the shop foremen, whom we have dealt with most of the time is unmatched.

Was a real pleasure to work with Brian Q.

by from Erhard Minn. |

we were very satisfied with the service. This was our second purchase from Brian and we would go to him again. Thank you Brian.

"Our buying experience with Brian was very pleasant.  He answered all our questions and even offered advice on how to get someone from Nebraska (where we live) to pick up the truck.  He sent two men to meet our driver in Fargo making the purchase much more convenient.  I would recommend Nelson to any friends or family in need of a vehicle."

 Regards, Scott from Lincoln, NE  February 22, 2013

The Nelson Staff are Excellent. My Sales Professional Brian Quernemoen has been working with me for months to find the right used vehicle for my needs. He never gave up, and when the right vehicle came along we negotated a very fair deal. No pressure. He listened to my concerns and did his best to solve any issues I had. I would absolutely recommend Nelson Automotive Group for any vehicle purchase. And Also their service department is very good as well. Shopping local just makes good since when dealing with good people like Nelson's.

Aaron Mikkelson
Sales Consultant

We recently purchased a used Vehicle from Nelson Auto Center. We worked with Aaron who helped us and went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied with the vehicle. He also went to great lengths to teach us how to use all the accessories and even helped us link our phones to the car. He made sure we understood what the capabilities of vehicle were and how to access them. We love the car and will go back for our next purchase. I feel great that I can call Aaron any time I have questions!! - Sydni Pafko Mansager - 12/11/19

Aaron and his manager made the anxiety of purchasing a brand new SUV less stressful. He was thorough and patient with us, even though it was late on Saturday afternoon. - Jll - 12/18/19

Great experience. Quick and easy. Aaron was a great person to work with. Answered all my questions and the dealership did what they needed to get me a price I was comfortable with. Thank You!
