Tim I. - 2003 Honda Pilot

I can't speak highly enough about Boardwalk Auto - Brian and Forrest are fantastic and gave me a great price!! After buying a 2003 Honda Pilot with high miles, a check engine light and transmission light came on. Brian paid to have the problem diagnosed, and when the mechanic couldn't get to my repair in a reasonable time, I decided to do the repair work myself. Brian bought the parts and gave me some money for the time I spent fixing it!! Brian and Forrest went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied, and truly seem to want the best for all their customers. The guys at Boardwalk Auto have earned my trust.

Great place! I went to quite a few used car lots and this one is by far the best. They found the perfect pick up truck for me! Love it! Highly recommend Boardwalk Auto.

Brenda B. - 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid

Very friendly people. They were very concerned with my needs for finding the right vehicle. They even took a trade in and they were very cooperative with us having the old vehicle towed to them. Forrest knows a lot about the business and the vehicles in the lot and is willing to go the extra mile. I left there feeling like I have known them for years. My husband was very attached to the broken down vehicle and when he left Boardwalk he very pleased with everything.

Best place to buy a car or truck hands down I keep going back !

Glenda H. - 2003 Chevrolet Impala

My son found a car for sale on the web from Boardwalk Auto. Being female and by myself I was unsure how this would go for me.
Happily, I was met by Forrest first of all, who is the kindest and nicest young man that I have met in a long while! He is very knowledgeable, and it shows. I was handed the keys to test drive without question. When I got back, I also met Brian. He, too, was so nice and friendly. Never once did either one of them treat me with anything other than respect. Needless to say?, we closed the deal and I drove away as a very happy and satisfied customer!! Forrest even extra-detailed the car while I was signing the papers. Great job, guys-my son was happy with it as well!

Joyce W. - 2019 Customer Car

Brian was pleasant and friendly but my circumstances wouldn't allow me to get a car there at the moment. I would and will go back when my circumstances change from restarting to established.
Anyone looking for an honest helpful car sales place should definitely go check them out.

Gavin N. - 2019 Customer Car

I looked at a car there. They were very friendly and willing to help. I sadly did not purchase a car from them, although I definitely would have if I didn't decide on repairing my recently hit car. They were informative and they were willing to lower the price to fit our budget. These are some very trustworthy people that are willing to help you find the right car for you

Deb G. - 2012 Chevrolet Cruze

My daughter and I had been searching for a car that was something she liked and something I wanted as far as reliability and safety. We had looked for 2 weeks in 3 states and had realized fast that people were dishonest or omitted things that we needed to know, but didn't. We had just started our day in Rochester and Boardwalk Auto was the first dealership we stopped at. We expected them to be like all the rest, boy were we wrong!!

After about 20 minutes we knew we wanted to buy a car from them. They went above and beyond to help us understand all of the information, showing us paperwork so we could make an informed decision.
My daughter fell in love with a Chevy Cruze and soon we were filling out paperwork for a loan. After waiting for a few days they called and told us she was approved.
Today we went and picked up her new car. Thank you Brian and Forrest for everything you have done for us!! We not only found a car but now we have found the only place we will ever buy another car from!! If you are a mom looking with your daughter I highly highly recommend Boardwalk Auto!! Thanks, Deb and Cassandra

Mareanna S. - 2012 Chevrolet Spark

I’m telling you this is the best place to buy a car. This was my first time buying a car and I honestly think there is no better place to go. They kept in contact with me through the whole process and made sure I had the car I wanted! These guy know how to do their job and they are the best at it. The best experience buying anything in my entire life. Thank you guys so much!

Kim S. - 2005 Mazda RX8

I didn't actually buy a vehicle here, but I was looking at an RX-8 a while back. They were low pressure and honest.

Billie-Jo L. - 2002 Ford Sport Trac

As always had another great experience with Brian and Forest would recommend boardwalk to anyone needing a nice car at a great price and they both are very honest thanks again

Kari G. - 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

I had a wonderful experience at Boardwalk Auto. This was my first time buying a car and I couldn't be happier with the experience! Forrest answered all of the questions I had and both him and Brian were very flexible and understanding when I was having issues with my bank card. They let me take the car home and pay the rest when I was able to get things straightened out with my bank. Thank you both for making my first car purchase such a a good experience. I love the car!

Drew M. - 2017 GMC Yukon XL

Had a wonderful experience at Boardwalk Auto! Forrest was very helpful and listened to what I needed in a car, and he gave me a great deal besides! I appreciate the customer service as well as having a great variety of cars with amazing prices to chose from. I highly recommend them!

Jerry T. - 2019 Customer Car

I inquired about a vehicle on the lot, and Forrest got back to me immediately and got me all of the information I had asked for very promptly. He is very friendly AND professional, and although I didn’t buy a vehicle just yet, I’d feel very comfortable doing business with them in the future, and to recommend them to my friends and family! If you want a friendly, no hassle, non-pushy experience, check out the great folks at Boardwalk Auto!!

Brandi M. - 2008 Mazda 3

Just bought a car for my daughter and they helped me find a car specific to her needs. They talked about all the options and we found one. They were great and they never tried to up sell us a car that was not in budget. They also worked around my work schedule so that was nice that I didn't have to take time off work. I would buy another car here. Thanks guys!

Natasha P. - 2007 Chrysler Aspen

Great customer service. Honest guys

Glenn W. - 2005 Toyota Prius

I will recommend Boardwalk to anyone (already have recommended to many friends). Contacted Brian about a couple vehicles he had on the lot. Was considering a "package deal" but I also told him if they sold before I could get up there, it was fine. One of the two sold, Brian was more than helpful, going above and beyond to find me another vehicle. In the end, he wasn't able to bring one onto the lot. But even knowing that he wouldn't make a dime off the sale, he helped me make sure the one I was looking at was worth it.


It was quite a while before I could get up there as I had to wait for the money for the other one. I live 2 hours away, we came up the night before and stayed in a hotel, mostly to just see his lot, still wasn't sure if I was getting anything. That Saturday morning Brian was finishing up some personal business and Forrest was busy with something. I came to the lot before Brian could get there. I met at least two previous customers of theirs, both of which had good things to say about Brian and Forrest. One of them being the person that bought the one vehicle I was looking at up there. He had told me how happy he was with it. He also was looking at the similar vehicles as to what I had gone up there for. He had mentioned that he was a regular there.


After Brian showed up, I watched as maybe a half dozen people came and went, most were prior customers. Brian was very friendly and professional with all of them. I had my entire family there (6 of us). I purposely waited till it had slowed down. He still made sure we were taken care of in a timely manner. I had 4 screaming kids at his lot for well over an hour while I took my time. Not once did Brian show any hint of trying to pressure me into a decision. He even said, "it won't hurt my feelings of you decide not to buy it" (referring to the car I had been talking to him about).

End result, I bought the car. I bought it as-is, knowing it may need a little tlc. He gave me a great deal on it. Never pressured me once. I am very happy with the deal and will definitely be back in the future for my next one.

Alesha F. - 2008 Chrysler Town & Country

Forrest helped me into a 2008 town and country. he didn't usage coat anything on repairs. he was honest, super friendly and super personable. I will definitely be coming back here, as well as sending other people your way!

thanks for looking out!

Crystal K. - 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid

The gentlemen at Boardwalk Auto went above and beyond to make sure that I was happy with my vehicle. Add in a nervous mother who kept wanting the car checked out even though it was perfectly fine, and these guys put up with a lot from us. But they were always happy to help and never once rude or dismissive. I will definitely make the drive from Iowa to get my next vehicle from Boardwalk Auto!

Michael S. - 2010 Honda Insight

Very friendly and good natured about us viewing vehicles close to closing time. Were willing to work with our finance arrangements and they are reasonable priced for used vehicles. Vehicle we chose was in decent shape and did not require too many repairs. Overall very good place to buy a used vehicle.

Kim E. - 2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ

we are glad to know a family owned business & the pride they take knowing that things are done the right way. Thanks for the vehicle we have gotten from you ! we will get more when it is needed!

Josiah M. - 2011 Honda CRZ

Boardwalk Auto is the place to Go! Forrest at Boardwalk took great care of me and my wife! We are loving our new used Honda CRZ! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a used car at a GREAT affordable price! They have lots of great options and are willing to work with you to find a car that you will love! Will definitely be going back to Boardwalk Auto!
