    Comments: Once again we found the right vehicle, extremely clean and got a very good trade value with the previous vehicle from Doug. He makes the exchange very easy.

  • Name: Zolton Cohen   08/02/2017

    Comments: We just purchased our fifth car from Doug Walters, and this latest experience was, like the others, virtually seamless.

    Our relationship with Doug has developed into one of utmost trust on our part. We could not be happier with the autos we have purchased, and especially with the terrific service we have been given each time over the years.

    And what a wonderful surprise to be walked through the confusing electronics of a modern automobile by Doug's competent and patient daughter. It is obvious Doug's legacy of treating customers with respect and care is being passed along to a new generation.

    Comments:  I've recently purchased my first car from Walters, and it probably won't be my last. It's a top notch used car which looks, drives, and even smells almost like new. The entire staff was knowledgeable and attentive, and they did an excellent job of getting the car ready for sale, even down to setting the lug nuts to the right torque.

  • Why waste your time
    By James and Sarah V from Portage Mi | July 15, 2017

    As you probable noticed, the vast magoriyt of the reviews are glowing testimonies to Doug and all of his staff. Mine is no different. If you wasn't to find a negative thought or word; don't ask us or read this review. We have never found a staff as competent and worthy of your business. You cannot lose. We have bought three cars from this team( two within the last year). We loved our first two and mentioned that we were interested in a very specific car if they found one the one they found has truly exceeded my wildest hopes. It was like finding the powerball winning ticket in your coat pocket. They work as a team , the owner , sales staff, mechanics, detailed to provide outstanding customer service. They are worthy of being given an Oscar for their individual performances thank you so much for making this world just a little bit better.

    Comments: Although I have commented here before, I feel compelled to do it again. Just picked up my latest purchase from Doug and crew. As in all the times previous, I was greeted like a member of the family, one of the salespersons even remembered the last 3 cars I had purchased from them. Outstanding service from start to finish just as it was from the very first car I purchased from Doug. Why anyone would go to any other place to buy a nearly new car puzzles me. You will not find a better group of people who really care and want you to be 100% satisfied with your new vehicle. Keep up the great work. You and your crew are the best in the business. Thanks again for everything.

    A note to say thank you for the service and transportation extended to us while our

    Mariner was serviced at your facility on May 15 & 16, 2017.

    Dave went above and beyond to help my wife Sue get the vehicle to & from

    our residence for service work.

    Due to a recent fall, I'm unable to drive for some time and do so so appreciate this

    extra help given us.

    Be assured, we will continue to recommend both your sales and service operations

    to our friends.

    Comments: Great experience! Claire was very helpful and the car is wonderful. I had a minor body issue following my purchase with some paint scratched and they took care of it! I also got a great explanation of all the operations of the car system and my phone hooked in as I am not exactly high tech on such matters. My family has bought here and love their cars as well.

    I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful employee you have in Dave @ the Service Center.


    I started bringing my vehicle over there when I worked on Venture Park because it was convenient.  I've taken a new job in Portage now but continue to bring our vehicles to Dave because he's always friendly, helpful, honest, thorough & I feel like we're well taken care of.


    We had an older van that our teenage son was driving.  We were aware that there were various things wrong (i.e. back wiper no longer worked) and I told Dave our intention was to just keep it running as long as possible.  He completely got it and informed me of things that were dangerous but didn't both me with the other stuff that we didn't think was even worth fixing.  Well, that vehicle died in February so then we were in the situation of finding an inexpensive vehicle for our teenager.  I asked Dave for advise and offered various idea and said "just bring it here so that I can look at it before you buy".  Well, when it was all said & done we had brought him 4 vehicles to check out before we finally bought something.  Each time he was extremely thorough telling us his thoughts/concerns, pricing for repairs, etc.  He was always very honest I felt like I had the information to make an informed decision.  As a woman, I can't tell you how important it is to me that he gives it to me straight and doesn't talk down to me.


    My husbands SUV is getting older as well and just this week he went to go to lunch & it started hard. Since we had just experience this same thing w/ grandma's van my husband brought it right to Dave and indicated that he thought it was the starter.  Dave took it right in (without appointment) and had it fixed by 5PM the following day.


    I could go on & on with examples of how he has helped me in various situations but I think you get the point.  You've got a great employee in Dave!  He's wonderful example of what customer service really means.

    Comments: I just bought an SUV from Bud and Doug's and it's my family's 6th vehicle that we've purchased there. They have always been very professional and have provided excellent customer service. They do everything...literally everything. All we did was sign the papers! I had a trailer hitch installed on my new vehicle and the trailer place installed the wrong wiring harness so Jeff (one of the sales staff) came right to my place of business and picked up the vehicle, had it fixed and returned it to me in a few hours. Bottom line, I have always been impressed by the level of personalized attention that I've received from Bud and Doug's. I really don't think I would ever go anywhere else! Thanks for another great car buying experience!!

    Comments: When I was in an auto bind a couple of weeks ago I turned to Bud &Doug's as I have a half dozen times before. They didn't"t let me down, they never have. They had the ideal vehicle in stock and it was perfect. I have never seen a bad car on their lot.

  • Michelle & Garrett Peaslee 03/24/2017

    What a great experience purchasing a vehicle from Claire and Doug! We purchased a Honda Pilot from them, and it was an easy purchase... no haggling, no "I have to talk to my manager", they quoted a fair trade-in price for our Honda Odyssey, and they were a pleasure to work with! We are very satisfied customers and we will definitely purchase a vehicle from them again!

    I highly recommend Doug and Claire Walters for buying a used vehicle. I am so pleased with my purchase of a 2014 Toyota Camry two weeks ago. They took care of the paperwork right away and had me on the road within 24 hours of my decision. It has been a great purchase and feels like a brand new car. Doug even took care of a minor detail for me on the spot and replaced my gas cap. No problems since, but he will definitely stand by his cars. I love this place! Marge Parmenter

    Walters is the absolute best place to purchase a used vehicle. Doug stands behind every vehicle he sells. He really searches for the vehicle you want, and doesn't try to sell you something you don't. Not only do we return when we need a new vehicle, we encourage others looking for a vehicle to stop at Walters first. thanks much to Doug and his staff!!

    I gave Doug specifications of a car I wanted and the price range I wanted to spend and he was able to find me the perfect car at the right price with more bells and whistles than I asked for. I love my new car and couldn't be happier. Doug did me right and recommend him to anyone who wants a good car!

    Doug,my first purchase vehicle goes back to 1983 when I traded a 1980 Toyota for a 1984 Cutlass Ciera Station wagon. Then I bought a 1991 Buick LeSabre T Type that went 300,000 miles. You have always been awesome to deal with and to date as we left for many year have returned three weeks ago to purchase an incredible 2015 Mazda CX-9 from your lot and WOW! I Can say you have earned my business back forever. The wife and kids love the new car and we are as thankful to have bought it from you as you are of us returning back to you. Thanks to you and Jeff for being so incredibly helpful with our purchase. Thank YOU AGAIN! I will spread the word and tell my 3,212 friends, family and all I know to check with you and your lot. Best Cars on the market and as always well above par, for sweet cars.

    I am totally thrilled with my RAV4 that was purchased in March! Jeff Kirk did a terrific job helping me select just the right car. The RAV was on my radar but he suggested a couple other good options, just to be sure I found exactly the right car. I was also extremely pleased that the problem with the CD player was immediately addressed, no questions asked. Happy to recommend Walters and Jeff to anyone looking for a vehicle.

    Between my husband and me, we figure we have bought more than a dozen vehicles from Bud and Doug Walters. My latest purchase was a 2012 Honda Fit, with standard transmission, one of my requirements. Due to a messy legal situation, I found the car several weeks before I could make a firm commitment, and Doug held it for me with no problem! I was so sure of Doug's quality that I never actually drove the car before purchasing it! Nor did I have it inspected until after I bought it. Kendall's found no problems, and said they have never found any problems with a car purchased from Walters! You have a gift for finding quality vehicles! I have been singing your praises to everyone I talk to! Thanks again for your friendly high quality attitude, service and vehicles.

    We recently bought a Subaru Forrester from Doug and we love it. Our family always goes to Bud & Doug and we are always extremely satisfied. On top of great knowledge, the staff goes above and beyond, like when sales rep Alex took 30 minutes to teach us all about all the cool features. If you need a car, there is no need to go anywhere else.

Our circumstances were unusual this time, but Doug held the car we wanted for three weeks on just our word. He and his staff are just down right decent people treating people with honesty and integrity. Thanks again Doug !

    I wouldn't go anywhere else.

    My name is Jim Tomlinson. My wife and I recently purchased another car from Doug Walters. This is the 10th car either my wife and I or our children have purchased from Doug. He features nearly new cars without the new car prices. Everything Doug has on his lot is in superior condition. He is very meticulous about his vehicles. Equally important for us is the fact that Doug always treats us like we are special . . . More like friends than customers. There is no high pressure sales. If he doesn't have exactly what we want he searches for us. When he finds a car that he thinks we want, most of the time we buy it. If it isn't just what we want he puts the car on his lot and continues the search for us. Previously, I tried car dealerships in the Kalamazoo and Battle Creek areas. I always found myself frustrated with sales people and managers who were more interested in pushing a sale versus trying to make me happy. Never again. When you deal with Doug, you're done haggling with th
    e rest. Thank you Doug for your help.

    I heard many comments about the service at Walters Auto, I wanted to check it out for a potential used car. Doug went above and beyond. When he didn't have quite the right car on the lot, he found one he thought was perfect...and it is! When Doug was busy, Jeff helped get cars ready for test drives and also answered any questions I had. Personable, friendly, honest and willing to work all the details out. I looked a couple of other places and this business is the BEST!! LOVE MY CAR!!!

    I was looking for a specific vehicle and was having no luck finding it. I went to Doug to see if he had what I was looking for. Unfortunately he didn't have but he told me he wold find what I was looking for. In a very short time, he found exactly what I wanted and it was in better shape than anything I was looking at and at a much better price. He took all the stress out of vehicle shopping. I will recommend everyone to Doug for the next vehicle. Very impressive service.

    We just bought a car from Doug Walters and we highly impressed with the personalized service that we received. Doug handled everything from finding a great interest rate on a car loan to notifying our insurance company. It was the least stressful experience I have had when purchasing a car. From the test drive through the purchase, there was absolutely no stress or pressure felt. I would recommend that everyone in need of a car check out Bud & Doug Walters Auto Sales.

    It was a pleasure, working with Doug and Jeff at Bud & Doug Walters Auto Sales earlier this month. I am getting used to my newest ever used vehicle, a 2012 Ford Escape XLT. My mechanic--Dave Preston of Shaver Road Auto--was right on in recommending Bud & Doug Walters. This dealer's excellent reputation in our community continues to be earned every day via their top notch vehicles and warm yet professional sales service.

    Doug, I just wanted to comment since I have bought 4 vehicles from you over the years. We bought our last car from you and it was a 2002 Camry XLE. It had somewhere in the neighborhood of 40,000 miles. It has been around 7 years know and it still runs and looks great. I trust your dealership and your honesty. I will be back to purchase another vehicle for sure!

    Chris was the one who sold me my 2011 Honda CRV. Chris, as well as the rest of the sales department I'm sure, are great people who will give you a very good deal on your next car purchase!! Chris gave me a VERY good deal on my trade-in!! It was a relaxing, feel good buying experience. Plus they have a very nice inventory and show room! I highly recommend this dealership. My trade-in also sold very quickly! Thanks for making the last member of my family to be a Honda owner!

    Hi Gary,  12/08/14
    Hope your hockey is going well.
    I had my rear brakes done today at Walters on my 2012 Honda Pilot.    Just wanted to pass along that Doug Simpson and crew were very professional and have earned my business to keep going back.    I’ll spread the good word when I can.
      Thanks again for Pete’s fine running Toyota 4 Runner and my Honda.

    Couldn't be happier-amazing!
    By Jenny B. from Kalamazoo, Mi | October 23, 2014

    I recently purchased a vehicle from the dealership and had a few minor issues, none of which were their fault by any means! For example, I noticed that I had these spots all over the hood of my car, that were from these berries that kept falling from this tree I would always park under at work! Started to take the paint off so I called them just to see if there was anything they could do to remove them. They happily looked at what was going on and tried the best they could to remove the spots. Then I must've hit a pretty bad pot hole and my splash guard from underneath my car became loose, they happily fixed that as well. The customer service is absolutely amazing, fast, SO friendly and Doug is always going above and beyond to ensure his customers are happy. You don't get customer service like that these days, so it's a great feeling knowing that you're going to be taken care of. Really and truly, it's been a wonderful experience all the way around.

  • Matt Shankle 10/28/2014
    Matt Shankle   10/28/2014

    Good evening,  

    My name is Matt Shankle - my wife, Keesha, and I have bought two vehicles from the Bud & Doug Walters group, and Jeff Kirk, in the last two and a half years; most recently due to an accident that totaled the first vehicle we bought from Jeff.

    I'm emailing you to inform you of the extreme satisfaction both my wife and I have had in dealing with Jeff and the Bud & Doug Walters group. After the accident on 10/20/14, I emailed Jeff on 10/21/14 to inform him we were in the market for a new car after we found out the car was totaled. I gave him some pretty specific parameters (AWD, high mpg, small SUV) and asked him for assistance. Jeff was prompt in his response, professional in his recommendations and extremely knowledgeable about what our goals were. We were able to connect with him through the website to search inventory and finally in person on Saturday morning for some test drives. Jeff took his time with us without being too "salesmansey" and really helped us dissect our options. After driving one vehicle, my wife and I both said no matter what, we're buying a vehicle from Jeff.

    After driving three vehicles, we came back to the original recommendation from Jeff. We loved the options (warranty and all our parameters were met) and the price was extremely competitive. The only thing Jeff wasn't able to do for us was offer a new body style Ford Escape to drive. We told Jeff that we wanted to drive one and that we'd be back. Let me tell you that the experience we had with Jeff and the experience we had at the "big dealership" was night and day. As a marketing/sales professional myself, I can't thank Jeff enough for shooting us straight and giving us a deal that was reasonable for both parties. The Ford dealership gave us the old "sales manager coming in to beat prices" technique, but my wife and I weren't having that. We weren't happy with the Escape anyways and knew the Tuscon back with Jeff was what we wanted. All in all, we spent MORE TIME with the Ford dealership to test drive ONE car than we did with Jeff to test out THREE...and that wasn't by choice with the Ford dealership.

    We came back to Jeff, asked to drive the Tucson again and returned to buy it. Jeff got the financing setup on Saturday but unfortunately didn't get approval until 3pm - where we are so happy with Jeff is he met us Sunday at noon to hand over the keys and for us to give him the check. He was very knowledgeable with the paperwork, explained everything clearly and concisely, and got us on the road quickly with our new vehicle!

    Please accept this as a letter of recommendation for Jeff Kirk. His professionalism, empathy, salesmanship and over all outstanding personality have not only made us life long Bud & Doug Walters customers but we will consistently refer people to Jeff because of his character and the value he can deliver on vehicles.

    Thank you for your time and we look forward to a long relationship with your organization.

He was fair with the pricing and with trading in my vehicle. I couldn't of asked for a kinder salesman. I would suggest anyone looking for a used car to visit Bud & Doug Walters Auto Sales.

    To Whom it may concern: We had the privilege to work with Jeff at Walters Auto. He was fair, honest, and knowledgeable. When searching for vehicles (either new or used) that is all you can ask from a dealer or salesperson. We found Walters by luck...but will be back for our next vehicle and have no problem recommending them to anyone. They aren't like normal dealerships and we couldn't be happier with our purchase. Sincerely, Catie & Derek Nelson

    We bought our first vehicle from Bud & Doug Walters Autos Sales almost 12 years ago. We still have the 14 year old vehicle today. We bought our most recent vehicle from them almost a year ago, and absolutely  love it!!! ONLY the highest quality vehicles are sold here, so you always know what you’re getting!!! Most of the vehicles still carry the manufacturer’s warranty, which provides the greatest piece of mind. And if any work does need to be done to the car, they will usually help facilitate the repairs. All you have to do is ask!

They always have what we need, and go above and beyond to make it work with our budget and even after the sale, they are available for questions, problems that may arise, and ALWAYS make sure we are satisfied customers. We now have all four of our teenagers with vehicles from them as well as our family vehicle. Thank you Doug and Bud for giving us a safe and reliable place to shop!

I'm confident I got the best match balancing need and cost. The whole transaction was handled with efficiency and in a timely manner. Well done Walters Auto Sales, I will return.

Jeff was helpful too with the technology piece in the car. We have purchased ONLY from Bud & Doug since 2008, and would think of none other! We came back with a concern with the car and it was repaired immediately! All the cars we have bought from Doug have been outstanding. We tell all our friends about this wonderful car dealership. It's the best!

    Comments: We have again purchased a car from Bud & Doug's and I'm not sure we'll go anywhere else ever again. Good selection of cars, great service, honest information about the vehicles, and fair prices. I'm not a fan of looking for cars or even the whole car-buyng process. But, they make it easy. As I've said to Doug, it's like having a personal shopper. We've recommended Bud & Doug's to several people who have also purchased cars there and not one has had a complaint.

    Bud & Doug Walters Auto Sales has received a 5 star review by a consumer on Cars.com.

    Great service and very reliable and no pressure
    By Jerry Zacharias from Kalamazoo, MI | November 21, 2013

    Found a used Toyota Highlander for my wife at Bud and Doug's Auto Sale about 3 years ago. She came in looked at it and test drove it. Fell in love with it, so we traded our Buick Lucerne in on it. Doug gave us more for trade in than any other dealer around. We have not had any problems at all. Doug and his sales staff are very professional, knowledge and helpful. Absolutely no pressure to buy the vehicle which impressed me the most. When it was time for one of our church members to buy a van, I took him over to Doug needless to say they bought a Toyota Sienna from him. They are very pleased with their vehicle. Recently I purchased a town and country minivan from him and trade in my vehicle again Doug gave me more on trade in than the other dealers. So far no problems with the vehicle. I believe Doug gets in quality cars and has them check out and serviced. I can't say enough about Doug and his staff, great people to work with. I will be returning Doug when were ready to buy another vehicle.

    Comments: I'm 70 yo now and every used car I ever owned was from Bud & Doug Walters. My first was many years ago when Bud had a small lot on portage Ave. I always felt comfortable during and after any purchase. Doug now make sure you are happy with your purchase when you drive off the lot and afterwards. Never buyers remorse. I live in Jackson and my next purchase will continue to be from Bud & Doug walters.

    Comments: I purchased a hard to find Infiniti G35X Sport from Doug a little over a month ago, and I couldn't be more happy with my choice of a dealer to buy from. I typically do not enjoy purchasing vehicles from car dealers, but you guys were a complete pleasure to deal with. I purchased the car and drove it off the lot in less than one hour and without reservation regarding the purchase. Throughout the process, I felt as if I was being treated with the respect and honesty that is rare to find in your industry. Even after a minor issue presented itself with my new car, of which was days after the dealer warranty expired, you didn't even hesitate in assisting me with the problem and quickly resolving it free of charge. Your company and approach has exceeded my expectations and has earned my customer loyalty for life.

    Comments: The Highlander was the 2nd vehicle we have bought from Doug and we are very happy with it. It's hard to find a good, reliable vehicle and even harder to find a place that doesn't apply pressure to buy. We appreciate the outstanding service we always receive from Doug and his staff. Everyone is always happy to help. I think the best compliment I can give is in the past, whenever I bought a car, I'd remove the sticker with the name of company I bought it from immediately. I don't ever give free advertising to businesses that do not deserve it. I proudly display my Bud & Doug's sticker and would never remove it. I'm happy to drive around with that sticker on my car! Thanks again!

    Hey Chris,
    Took me almost as long to write this Thank You as it did to pick out my car.  Glad we took the time though, I absolutely love it.  Thanks so much for your patience and knowledge and all the dealing you did for me.  You guys saved me on the Pilot, and I truly appreciate that.  And for you and Doug to throw in a sunroof to make it my perfect car was amazing.  I really do enjoy working with you guys and will continue to stay a loyal customer.  I keep sending people your way, telling them you are the best and will take care of them.  I need more business cards from you though. I have a few friends about to be in the market for a new ride but not sure on there budgets yet, I'll do my best to bring you some business.  You guys have been really good to me and I truly appreciate the time and patience you took with me and the added bonuses also.  Been going back and forth to Detroit for Dr appts and the fuel mileage is amazing(even at 89)lol.  My 2012 Kia Optima was the way to go and it gets a lot of looks.  Thanks again so much for all your help and understanding along the way.  Looking forward to the next purchase.

    Comments: Doug, You go above and beyond to assure that we (buyers) are well taken care of. We've known you for over 22 years and you are still the best used auto dealer this side of the Mississipi. Your cars are top notch like new and anyone buying from you can be sure they will have a dependable car for a very long time. Our Cadillac was gorgeous, we really enjoyed driving it and as you know, it just wouldn't wear out. My new Camry is out of this world fabulous, you had exactly what I was looking for. But I remember you telling me that if you didn't have it on the lot you'd find it so I wasn't worried that I wouldn't get exactly the car I wanted. The price was more than fair, you saved me a ton of money on this one. I tell anyone I know looking for a car to see you, they for sure won't be sorry.

    Comments: I started my search for a C-2 Vette many, many months ago. Looked at way too many to mention on line. Then I found a 1964 at Walters Auto Sales. I was very interested after reading the online write up. Then I spoke with Doug Walters on the phone. This guy was very informative and seemed very honest about the car. Couldn't wait to get there to see it. This guy is truly an honest, informative, helpful professional! I bought the car partly because of Doug and a lot of, I fell in love with this Classic. I traveled 200 miles for this buy and will be going back to purchase from Doug again! Probably won't be a classic Vette but still will be a great find and buy from a professional. Wish he was closer in distance so I could send friends his way as well.

    Comments: I have lived in the Kalamazoo area all of my life and it seems like Walter's Auto Sales has been around for most of it. I am known as being a shopper and never making a major purchase on the spur of the moment. But recently I saw just what I wanted on the Walter's lot, the price seemed fair and most of all, I felt the confidence to go ahead with the purchase because I had always heard that the Walters could be trusted to be fair and honest and that they would stand behind the cars they sold. My confidence was confirmed as we completed the sale. A most pleasant buying experience! James Keene

The care of the car as I got it with a full tank and washed clean which made my drive away complete. I drove it to South Bend last night and it was so smooth. Thanks Chris.

    On March 19, 2012, I purchased my third car from Doug in the last seven years.  
    Just as I did with the second car, I only stopped one place...Bud & Doug Walters 
    Automobiles.  It is nice to be remembered and treated as an old friend.  I had 
    an annoying problem (a mysterious body panel squeak) and Doug was diligent to 
    see that the problem was fixed..and fixed right.  I heartily recommend you see 
    Doug first.  You wont be disappointed.  Thanks, Doug!

    As a return customer, I just wanted to thank both Chris and Doug for the 
    patience with my indecisiveness while again making my choice of the best 
    "previously owned" vehicles in the area.  I am loving the VW New Beetle 
    convertible I recently purchased!  What a fun car!!  It was also a pleasure 
    again finding a new favorite car and working with both Chris and Doug!  Thanks a 
    bunch, guys!  Wishing you continued success!  Thom Neal

    This was our second car purchase from Bud and Doug Walters.  As usual, the 
    service was terrific. Low pressure, professional and competent.  They listened 
    to our needs and worked to find the right car for our budget. If you don't like 
    the car buying process, I recommend Bud and Doug Walters.

    Doug helped with a complicated sale - he was his usual courteous, capable, and 
    competent self.  He and his entire staff are a pleasure to deal with, especially 
    since an auto purchase can be one of life's difficult experiences.  This was not 
    - the whole dealership is a star!

    Doug Walters has a great reputation for quality used cars that truly are "like new." Doug worked with us to find a car perfect for our needs and we are completely satisfied with the 2008 Ford Edge that he helped us buy. No high pressure and a lot of patience was just what we needed. Thanks, Doug!

    We have purchased a dozen cars from Doug over the last 25 years and the fact that we keep going back is a testament to Doug's dedication to quality in the cars he sells. On the rare occasion that we have had a problem, he stands behind his work and fixes the problem without question.

    We really enjoyed working with Chris during the purchase of our 2009 Impala, he was very helpful and pleasant. We had a question about the brakes and he had them immmediately looked at and repaired. This action was enough to make us feel that we could count on the dealership to help out in anyway they could. We will surely let friends and family know about your help and concern for your customer. Thanks

    We have purchased cars for over 30 years from Doug and his dad, Bud. Doug as the ability to select excellent cars. We tell him what we want and he has never disappointed us with the cars he has picked out. He always stands behind the cars he sells. We would not hesitate to recommend Walters Auto Sales to anyone who is looking for a good, clean car.

    Just wanted to say thanks to Doug for helping us find the vehicle for us. There was no high pressure sales, just a good vehicle for a good price. Thanks too for being there to answer our questions about the vehicle after the sale. Your dealership has a good reputation in Kalamazoo and we have experienced it for ourselves.

    I would like to start off by saying I hate the process of car shopping and buying, but I changed my opinion after buying a car at Walters Auto. I got my perfect car at Walters Auto, and it was a great experience from start to finish. No pressure sales, so you can take your time and think about it. I received so much help from everyone, and Gary took great care of me from start to finish. I got a great car at a great price, and I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for a great car buying experience.

    I was referred to Doug and Bud by my mechanic. Found and bought a car the same day. No pressure sales, no trying to convince you to buy more than you can afford, and they took care of everything. I will be back when I'm ready to purchase my next car.

    Jeannette and I were referred to Bud And Doug Walters by our neighbor Debby Kucinski. I have been buying cars for 55 years and in all that time, I have never had a buying experience to rival this one. We showed up on the day of the sale, signed papers and drove off. Everything else was taken care of by Doug before we arrived at the car lot. Thanks Doug for making this an enjoyable experience. I'd recommend you to all my friends, but not my enemies, You're too good for them.

I am a repeat customer because I love the vehicles I have purchased there and the service and knowledge Chris and Bud provide are the best. Recently, a friend and her husband purchased a car there as well. I recommended Chris, and I was excited to learn that they purchased a vehicle last month. Thank you for providing great service to me and my friends as well as the community at large.

    We just bought a Ford Explorer, and it's the 4th or 5th car we've gotten from Bud & Doug's, I've lost count. Every once in a while I wander from dealer to dealer and always end up back here. Customer service wins every time for me, and these folks could write the book. If more businesses were run like this, there would be a lot more successful businesses. THANKS!

I've had my car for 4 years without having to put a dime in it, other than routine maintenance. And I believe the same is true for my kids' cars. You can trust them. Isn't that great!

Dealing with Chris, we could see why the customer was very satisfied. He handled all the licensing, title work, etc. and everything was mailed to us in Lakeport. We are enjoying our Honda very much; thank you for your great service and caring attitude. We have referred you to other family members and we look forward to future business with you.

My experience has been so great,that I tell strangers too!

    I initially bought a car from Doug when a student at Western many years ago. I remembered his honesty and kept going back to his lot time and again as I searched for the right Trailblazer. We finally came out one Sunday, checked out a car that had just come into the lot, e mailed Doug, drove it, loved it and all was speedily taken care of by Doug and/or his friendly staff, just in time for Labor Day weekend so I could give my old car to our son for college. Thanks Doug for your integrity

    We were introduced to Bud & Doug Walters Auto Sales when our daughter recently purchased her used Lexus SUV from them. We were so impressed with her vehicle and the service she received from Jeremy that we had them advise us when they got another Lexus SUV in stock. A week later, we were the proud owners of a beautiful used vehicle. Jeremy made it so easy for us to complete the transaction -- thanks Jeremy! Thanks to Doug for his help as well. We will continue to recommend you others!

    I can't thank Doug Walters enough for providing me with a beautiful 2001 Toyota Carola. Being older and shopping alone is scary, and his kindness, understanding, and patience was extremely helpful and appreciated. He took care of everything. After having it mechanically checked and spotlessly cleaned it's like a new car. All I did was sign papers and drive away. I even had an automatic starter installed. I am recommending Walters Auto Sales to everyone I know.

    I just want to give Doug a great big Thank-You for my VW GTI purchase. For over 20 years I bought new cars every four years. I was reluctant to buy used. Doug Walters changed my thinking. The car I bought from him is beautiful and is in new condition. He saved me well over $6000. I LOVE my car and will definitely see Doug next time I am in the market for a car. I should also mention, it isn't just the car that was great, but the whole experience. By far the best car buying experience I have had! Thank you Bud and Doug Auto Sales!!!

I have never had such an easy time with the purchase of a vehicle in the past. When we arrived to pick up our car, Chris had everything done and ready for us. Talk about "sign and drive"!! It was wonderful. We will definitely work with Chris and Walter's Auto again when looking for our next vehicle.

    I knew I was going to buy the Hummer H3 before I had even taken a look at it. My first impression of the lot was "outstanding". Every vehicle was super clean, and the office was very clean and "nicely decorated" says the wife. Right then I could tell I was in the right place. I had no reservations when Doug told me that he found the ride I was looking for. I'm a VERY picky person ,and he is too, and that is what I like. Thanks again Doug, I love my new ride.

    Our first visit to Walters Auto Sales was just 1 out of 4 dealerships on the same day, and we were pleasantly surprised! We were immediately impressed with the straightforward and personal attention we received from Doug. His integrity was once again confirmed when he delivered our “to be purchased” vehicle, only to talk us out of taking possession of it because he noticed a mechanical issue that needed attention while driving it over to us. How could you not want to buy from someone like this?! We ended up purchasing a different vehicle from Doug and expect this won’t be the last!

We have made 3 purchases from them and can attest to their excellent selection and honest representation of the top quality vehicles they have carefully selected for you to browse among. If you don't see what you want and can wait a few weeks, leave your info and ask Doug to call you when he locates a good one!

The first car we bought had some elecrtical problems.He gave us a loaner while they fixed it, his cell phone if it stalled on us and eventually totally replaced it.He stands by his products. There is such a thing as an HONEST salesman-it is Doug.

    Absolutely the finest car lot I have ever stepped foot in! Doug and Jeff made 
    sure that everything was handled properly and in a timely manor, despite my busy 
    schedule. Look forward to doing business in the future.
    Thanks again guys!

    Our family has bought 3 cars in the last year from Doug and Jerry. We cannot praise these people enough. All the cars are in great condition, and look great. Our son just purchased the last one as he heads for his new location in Austin, Texas. Doug worked very hard to make this purchase work for him. Thanks again for your integrity and kindness!

    Chris Herrington fell backwards in his chair, hung from the ceiling, did back flips and cartwheels (figuratively)to assist us in purchasing a car of our dreams. Such an experience! We went to many car lots, etc., but were determined not to go to Doug Walters. A relative suggested going to Doug Walters. Their reliability, patience, honesty and integrity are more than just outstanding! They fixed our car when we found an oil leak and did everything they could to make this an enjoyable experience. Thank you, Chris, Doug and Sharon!

    I recently went to Bud & Doug just this Saturday and even though I did not find anything I was interested in at the time I was helped by Doug himself and he invested a lot of time with me to try to get something that would be good for me but not only that, something that would fit me as I am a bigger gentleman. He was very nice and very courteous. Overall it was the best used car shopping experience I've had!

    What a pleasure working with Doug. I was looking for a newer Ford Explorer. The first car we saw we bought! Before we signed, we checked out other car lots, but, after looking around for a week, we went back to Doug and got the first car we saw. The car was presented honestly and was at a fair price. We are very pleased, and I love my new car!!!

    My recent Jeep purchase was by far the best car buying experience I've ever had! Doug was truly looking out for my best interest. He made sure I found a car I love at the right price. My husband and I will be back next time we need a new car!

    Could not be happier with our recent purchase of a Honda Pilot. Everything went amazingly smoothly, including rapid and friendly correction of a slight alignment issue. These guys are worthy of your trust.

    After I crashed by 2002 Envoy (also purchased through Doug) on some black ice a couple weeks ago, I was stressed out! I hate car shopping and it is even worse in the winter! I was test driving a car from another dealership and decided that since I liked working with B & D so much I would drive over and see what they had on the lot. What do you know... They had the perfect car for me AGAIN! Doug was wonderful to work with and let me pick up the car that night! I recommend them to everyone I know!

    We recently purchased out 6th car, in 7 years, from Doug and have been perfectly pleased with each one. A few of the cars were for our teenagers, and we were 100% happy getting them from Doug. All the vehicles were in great shape, the staff is pleasant to work with and we will be back again someday I'm sure. Thanks Doug.

    We recently made our second purchase from Walters Auto -- and again, it was a great experience. I'm the new owner of a silver 2003 Jetta wagon and I'm happy to have a beautiful car that I assume will give me the years of good service that our last purchase did. Jerry and Doug were great to work with! I only have good things to say about Walters Auto and all the people who work there. Everyone is friendly and helpful and truly wants you to have a great car buying experience -- and come back to buy again. You can bet we will!

    This is my second used vehicle from Doug and would highly recommend anyone to visit him if you are in the market for a car. His cars are always clean and in excellent condition. Thanks Doug! You really know how to take care of your customers!

    My recent purchase of an Acura I absolutely love was by far the best car-buying experience I have had yet!! Chris was great and had everything taken care of when I drove from G.R. to make the purchase. My experience with him and Doug will definitely have me making a return trip when it's time for another purchase. Sharon's kindness was just icing on the cake...Thanks you guys!! :)

    We just purchased a Mercedes-Benz SLK350 from Doug. It was a very enjoyable experience, and Doug is an excellent salesman. We will definitely go back to him for our next car.

    In 2005 i purchased a 1996 collector edition corvette with the LT4 engine and six speed trans. After three years of selective usage (used on nice days only) I have had zero problems with this car. Thanks Charles McGlaughlin

    We just purchased a 2006 Toyota Camry from Doug, and it's our third car from him in the last nine years. In each instance we not only received a great car at a fair price, we also have developed a great relationship with a reputable dealership. When you work with Bud and Doug Walters, you know that you're dealing with the best. All of our purchases have been simply outstanding vehicles. In our mind there's no reason to work with anyone else. Our thanks go out to Doug and his customer oriented staff for making buying a car so easy.

    We just purchased a Cadillac CTS. This the fourth car we purchased from Doug. Chris is the sales rep that handled our sale. The whole staff of Bud and Doug Walters is professional and at the same time it is a very relaxed atmosphere. After our first purccase in 1995, we decided we will never shop again for a car, we just go to Walters. We don't have space here to mention all of the things they did for us, they will do anything to make you satisfied. Bob and Wilma Moore

    Having become a Dave Ramsey listener, I recently purchased my first pre-owned car. I've heard of your reputation for years and was pleased to find out it was all true. Matter of fact my salesman Chris contacted me a week after I took delivery to apologize for forgetting to tell me about a scheduled repair to the front bumper. I noticed the scratch and assumed some defects come with a used car. Once the car was delivered many dealers would have been tempted to have increased their profit as long as I didn't object. It's nice to see a sense of ethics in the marketplace. Thanks for making the experience so pleasant, you've made a loyal customer.

    Doug, It is now five cars purchased through the years, and again, you found just the car we were looking for! With the relationship we have had with both you and your Dad when we think of cars, there is just one dealer â??Bud and Doug Waltersâ? when we decide it's time to purchase another car, our next thought is let's talk to Doug about what we think we want and need in our next car, and again, you found the ideal car for us. We could not be more pleased. So we want you to know how much we appreciate your efforts for us , and also in working with our daughter and her husband to find a car that fit their budget and needs. We would like others to know the confidence we have in dealing with you, and the satisfaction we have had through the years with each of the cars purchased.

    In my past 35 years of experience in the automotive repair business I have dealt with many Automotive Dealerships, both before and after the sale. None even come close to the quality of before and after the sale service that Walter's Auto Sales provides. It has always been this way, remembering when Bud Walters first started out on his own (Doug was a strapping young lad at that time). For the past 10 years it has been my priviledge to work with Walter's Auto on a more direct basis, doing all of their pre-purchase work. Rest assured if you purchase a vehicle from Walter,s Auto Sales you are getting the BEST vehicle your dollar can buy!! Gary Shoemaker, Owner, Shoemaker's Garage.
