Robert Abear Pequot Lakes, MN
12/11/17---Betty Fleischfresser was instrumental in helping us get the vehicle we love! She was very attentive to us and listened to what we needed. We even had the financing in order and ready to go before we came to see some vehicles. In fact, when we arrived, she had a vehicle ready for us. We took a quick test drive and we were able to take it home a short time ... later. Thank you Houston Ford for helping us out; it really means the world to have a time dedicated to helping their customers and we will definitelly return (when we need a new vehicle, of course).
Carol Kuehn Richfield, MN

10/09/17---After not buying a vehicle for 12 years, Greg and all involved made this a headache-free experience. Wife bought her car there last year, told him what I was looking for, called me a few months later and worked with me, my bank and his crew. Low pressure, genuine concern and a beautiful dynamic. Would recommend to anyone looking for a new vehicle!!!
Tim Platt Brainerd, MN

08/30/17---A big thankyou and a big bear hug to Betty and the staff of Houston Ford of Pine River!! Last Tuesday, August 22, I purchased a '14 Ford Escape Sport SUV!! And it is my favorite color- a gorgeous deep blue! Just for a bit of history my late husband ,Brad, and our daughter, Molly, and I have purchased every vehicle at Houston, except one, here at Houston ... . The service here is phenomenal! We have always been treated like family by all the staff especially Betty- we have known her and enjoyed her service for 30 years- when we came here to "shop" for a vehicle it was and is like going home- coffee and treats, tons of smiles, handshakes and hugs and quality service and professional expertise. That Tuesday, last week when I decided to drive over to Pine River from Aitkin to check out the vehicles, I was asked by some of my friends why I would go way over there when we have car dealerships in Aitkin- my answer was simple- "oh that's where we've always bought our vehicles and it just feels like home"- the drive is worth it!! So thank you again dear Betty and Houston Ford! You made my day, once again, and I will continue recommending you and your quality, friendly service. Sincerely, Renee Simons Irwin Aitkin, MN Customer Service 5.0 /5 Buying Process 5.0 /5 Quality Of Repair 5.0 /5 Overall Facilities 5.0 /5

Justin Mayer International Falls, MN
08/26/17---Over the last 10+ years (since 2007) I have purchased three new Ford vehicles from Houston Ford in Pine River, MN. My parents have purchased vehicles there for several decades so it felt like a place I should try to do business with myself. My latest purchase was a sharp looking 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium which I am extremely pleased with! Everyone there at ... Houston Ford is very helpful and friendly and I really enjoy working with salesperson Betty Fleischfresser. She has always been extremely helpful to me and cares about my vehicle needs. Nate, Chris and Marya all make you feel comfortable and walk you through the entire purchase process. They are all really down to earth people. They also have a very top notch service department run by service manager Dayton Bachmann. Dayton seems to take great pride and appreciates his customers and he has gone the extra mile for me on multiple occasions which has been great. The service department will help make sure your vehicles is in top condition and go over everything with you for all of your service needs. Shawn and Blake in the parts department will also help take care of you when you ask about getting specific things in for your vehicle, for example Weather Tech accessories. I typically don't write a lot of reviews online but I felt when I'm treated so well by so many people especially at a dealership it's worth putting into words for a review. I will continue to look to purchase my Ford vehicles from Houston Ford in Pine River, MN for many years to come.
John F. Perham, MN
08/24/17---Had a small miscommunication issue at first. But both Kade and Greg responded to my issues within minutes. Spoke with both and got everything worked out. I gave Greg real tight list.

Trista Winans Donaldson, MN
06/02/17---I had a slow leak in a tire on my F350 that was purchased from Houston Ford. I called them up and I brought it right in to be fixed. The service department was very prompt and found the problem, fixed my tire, mounted it back on and as a bonus, gave my filthy F350 a great wash. I would recommend all of the folks at Houston Ford very highly. They have all ... been very helpful and they know what they are doing. The price was right as well. Thank you, Houston Ford!

Thank you Betty and God ... nd God Bless You.

When I bought my 2015 Escape I was very satisfied with the process and price, as I am with the new 2017 Edge. Dealing with Betty both times has been a pleasure. We have both got to know each other so it is a lot easier ... ier to talk about what I want. She has always been very helpful with getting to understand the new vehicle and set up and does a nice job of follow up to make sure that I am satisfied or need anything.

Karen Elizabeth Bruce Pequot Lakes, MN
03/06/17---I live in Clearwater MN, and have several Ford dealerships at my disposal (between Saint Cloud and the cities my options are nearly endless). My father and I chose to return to Houston Ford(2 hours away) because of the outstanding service. In 2015 I bought a used 2011 Ford Escape. Marya was extremely helpful and made sure to match my interests with my ... budget and found me the perfect vehicle. Fast forward to fall of 2016, I decided that I wanted to buy/lease something new and covered by warranty. James was there to help us at that time, but unfortunately it did not work out that day. We postponed the search until March of 2017, where I was finally able to lease a new 2017 Escape. James went above and beyond to make sure our experience was wonderful and that we were taken care of. Unfortunately, he was not there the day we went in to lease the Escape, but everyone stepped in and again our experience was top-notch. I recommend these guys to everyone! The service and care provided by everyone who works here is well worth the 2 hour drive!
Kaitlyn Bible Clearwater, MN

Sherry B Osage, MN
03/01/17---Thanks to the wonderful people at Houston Ford, I drove home my "custom made" 2017 F250 XL 4x4 on 2/27/17. I had heard from friends that it would be worth the drive from the cities to Pine River to speak with them about a new vehicle. I had already visited with a local dealer and felt I was looked down on, didn't know anything about ordering a truck this ... big & they wouldn't budge on the price. Greg Lillquist from Houston Ford was the 1st person I spoke with on the phone & I knew right away this guy was honest, respected me & would give me no b.s. When I drove up there to place my order, I met with Chris Balfe (Greg was out that day) & Chris was very helpful, honest and if he didn't know the answer to my questions, he looked them up immediately. I felt very comfortable with him, the order was placed & I was very satisfied with the price. Greg Lillquist continued to follow up with me and when the vehicle came in I was absolutely thrilled with his service and knowledge in showing me the truck. A huge thank you to Houston Ford for your wonderful, hard-working, caring, respectful employees - Greg, Marya & Chris! I love you guys & my truck - just what I ordered
Carol Dunsmore Chanhassen, MN
03/01/17---Our experience with Houston Ford was absolutely wonderful!! Greg Lillquist was our salesman & was the best we've ever dealt with!! Marya in Financing was awesome too!! We will definitely be going back for our next vehicle purchase.

He was extremely helpful and very professional, He was not a high pressure guy and that was one of the main reasons we bought from Pine River. He has been very good about follow up and helping us with any questions that have arisen since the purchase. Pine River Houston Ford is lucky ... to have him.
Timothy Dwight Park Rapids, MN
12/23/16---We worked with James and drove 3 hours to buy a truck. Very nice dealership and James went out of his way to find the perfect vehicle for my father-in-law. Great price, and excellent customer service. Dealership's all around where my father-in-law lives, but worth driving up there for the customer service. Thank you Houston Ford and James!

Paul Baymler Park Rapids, MN
12/21/16---Great experience buying a nice truck. They even drove to Brainerd to pick me up for a test drive. Definitely recommend buying from this dealer that has a nice family feel to them from first contact to handshake out the door. Communication with all departments is AAA.
Michael T. Baxter, MN
12/21/16---In November of last year my wife and I drove 175 miles to Pine River because Houston Ford had a F150 Platinum that matched our "new truck" search criteria We were greeted by a nice young man but he was wearing an "In Training" button on his shirt. Instantly wary! Not to worry, James Sherman may have been in training but he proved to be very professional ... , knowledgeable and had great customer rapport. We did not purchase the truck as my wife changed her mind about the color. However, our first experience brought us back the 175 miles when James was able to locate a Platinum that matched our new criteria. Very happy about our purchase from James and our lease arrangement - also with our first experience with the Houston Ford service department for our 5,000 mile checkup. We have been extremely satisfied with our new Ford F150, with James and the entire staff at Houston Ford.
Steve Herr Cook, MN
12/18/16--- I was referred to Houston Ford by a friend. They just received a truck on trade and I was looking for a 'not too old' truck. I contacted Greg Lillquist and quickly learned that he is a great person. The whole experience was great. Thank you for having a non-typical dealership!
Dan Mettling Milaca, MN
12/16/16---Happiness is a New Explorer Just bought a 2017 Explorer with the help of our salesman, James Sherman! He made the experience a very positive one. He was very patient as I was pretty picky!

Janice Longville, MN
12/12/16---Houston Ford is a very unique dealership. We were in awe when we walked through the door. The show room is not your typical dealership decor. They have a large stone fireplace and beautiful taxidermy. Couple that with the staffs' welcoming attitudes and you feel like you are visiting family in a warm cabin in the woods. Everyone there was friendly ... , knowledgeable, and very hospitable. They even baked our kids fresh cookies! Out of our many car buying experiences, this one was definitely my favorite! Betty has checked up on is twice since we bought our truck to make sure we are completely satisfied. I am happy we decided to make the drive up to Pine River! We will definitely do it again and will recommend them to everyone!
Crystal McGruder Staples, MN

Kathy Pinsonneault Walker, MN
11/11/16---I'd like to give a review on our experiences dealing with Houston Ford. My husband and I bought a new Ford F150 4x4 truck a few weeks ago. Our salesperson was Betty Fleischfresser.

Great job!

Mariah Nieman Nisswa, MN
09/20/16---Phenomenal! I found a vehicle here online and live over 4 hours away, and at a price that beat all others! Nate helped me through this entire process with the purchase and trade.

No pressure to buy, very informative and patient. I never felt rushed to make a decision. Would recommend Mike to anyone looking for a great car buying experience.
Brea Atkinson Minneapolis, MN
08/23/16---I had been eyeing up a new 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium on the Houston Ford website for quite some time. This vehicle would replace my 2012 Ford Fusion SEL. I decided to go in and check it out on Saturday 8/13/16. While I was hoping to work with Betty Fleischfresser on this because I have bought two vehicles previously with her I quickly found out Betty was ... unavailable. A bit hesitant because I had always worked with Betty on my vehicle purchases I worked with Mike Roney who approached me as I inquired about the Fusion. I quickly became comfortable working with Mike. He did a fantastic job and was very accommodating to any of my needs and wants in my most recent vehicle purchase. I was also extremely satisfied working with Chris Balfe and Nathan Makela as they ran the numbers for me (buy vs. lease and many many options under both scenarios). This team makes you feel like you're an important person and customer. They also make a serious attempt to get to know you and your situation which I greatly appreciate. They treat you not only like a friend but like family. It was great working with Business Manager Marya Lillquist on the paperwork as well. She was as excited as I was on my new vehicle purchase. Overall I couldn't be happier with my 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium and my overall experience at Houston Ford. I would gladly work with Betty Fleischfresser or Mike Roney on a future purchase or anyone on the great sales team at Houston Ford. The positive experience doesn’t end after you drive off the lot. I have also had great experiences with the service department. Dayton Bachmann runs a great service department and is always eager to help you out. Dan Krecklau is also extra helpful and goes over any service concerns or questions you may have with your vehicle. Shawn Olivier in the parts department also offers great personalized service. If they don’t have something you need in stock he will gladly order it for you and it will arrive the next day. I will be speaking with friends and family and post some favorable reviews on the internet about my positive experience with Houston Ford of Pine River.

08/09/16---Very good experience for me. I was a Chevy guy that switched to Ford much because of the people, and the service they gave me.

08/02/16--Nate and Marya along with all of the crew at Houston Ford Pine River dealership are first class all class. Purchased a 2015 F250 vehicle never seen before and I trusted Nate right away. With how personable he was with the background of the vehicle and exactly what was going on the entire process. I called the day they listed it for sale. I had 100 questions ... for Nate and he answered everyone..Owned the vehicle, where its been etc. They were fast with response, pictures, paperwork. Always answered the phone every time i called. I had the vehicle shipped from Pine river, MN to albany,NY this was stressfull because iv never transported a vehicle before but. Nate reassured me of the driver and the truck was safe with him. I got the truck yesterday and its everything Nate said it was and then some. Great business. Great people. I give 5 stars. Brandon Phelps, Contractor.

07/24/16--Houston Ford treats you like a real person. Greg Lillquist, the sales person I worked with, encouraged me to go with my heart. He did not try to get me to buy the most expensive vehicle I was interested in - he said go with the vehicle that I would still love when I drove it off the lot. He and all the rest of the Houston Ford crew were so supportive when I ... n I was trying to make my decision. I know have an incredibly awesome Ford Escape that makes me smile every time I step into my garage. Trust me - you can't go wrong if you go to Houston Ford.

07/10/16--Last week, after researching and having an unpleasant experience at a different dealership, I found the vehicle I was looking for at Houston Ford. Upon arriving at the dealership, I worked with both Greg and Marya Lillquist for sales and financing. Both Greg and Marya were incredibly helpful, listened to what I needed, and worked with me to make buying a car ... a really positive experience. I left the dealership in the car I wanted, and because they took time to go over everything and talk with me, I felt very comfortable and actually excited about the process. I would definitely recommend both the dealership, and working with Greg and Marya for future car buying purchases!!

06/28/16--It was a great experience. We did most of it online or through email. I didn't feel pushed in anyway. I would definitely recommend and go to Houston Ford again!
Jody Fore Pillager, MN
06/25/16--We worked with Nate and had a fantastic experience. Our vehicle purchase didn't end when we drove off the lot, there's been lots of follow up the last month to make sure we were completely satisfied. Financing department was a breeze to work with as well and got us an interest rate that beat our personal bank. We couldn't be happier and highly recommend ... Houston Ford!
Jess Lahman Parkers Prairie, MN
06/14/16--Bought 2 vehicles from them, both were priced accordingly. The sales rep Betty treated me well, answered all my questions, and made the experience exceptional. I would highly recommend going there, and ask for Betty!
