Great Customer Service

Was helping my daughter buy her first car and we called Nielsen to inquire about a particular model and the sales person was very helpful and informative on the phone. We set up an appointment. And found the experience low pressure, friendly and very fair in pricing (we had done quite a bit of research). Had planned to visit another dealer to compare similar vehicles but felt so comfortable with the salesman and manager we wanted to do business there. So we did! She loves her car, had a good first exposure to such a big transaction and we highly recommend the dealership!

The service department is phenomenal. They went way above & beyond a typical service department. We wish we could give them 10 stars. I was stranded 3 hours from home & they took such good care of me & my car on a Saturday. Thanks to the service manager, my car is almost like brand new. He is my hero. Words can not express how grateful I am for what he has done for us. Thanks so very much!

I am very happy with my new car

I was so impressed with the personal service this company provides. I was introduced to everyone and given a tour right away. They listened to me and we’re all professionals. I am very happy with my new car. I worked specifically with Tony M. as well as Matt and Jerry. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family.

I got a great price on my trade in and a great price on my truck

Great experience I drove 6 hours to look at a truck I saw online . Before I made my journey I spoke with Scot a manager at the dealership he assured me this truck was worth the drive and it was . He was very informative on all the specs and features of the truck. I got a great price on my trade in and a great price on my truck ,Joe in finance had everything ready to go and got me in and out of there and I can't forget Matt the GM it looked like he had a lot of things going on but he took the time to make sure I was completely happy and had a great experience I highly recommend coming in to see these guys they have a class act team over there.

Excellent service! Being a woman I am always frightened of mechanics trying to get over on me. This was not the case here, Michael was upfront and I paid what I expected. Even though my engine locked on me, would recommend for quality service.

We were on vacation here at the Indiana Dunes and car trouble popped up. We were able to talk to someone before the shop actually opened. They let us know we'd be taken care of as soon as someone from the shop arrived which didn't seem long at all. Sheila was so helpful and great with the communication, letting us know what was going on. It took a little more than an hour for the work and we were on our way! Back to vacation stuff!

Steve made the process so easy and helped me find the perfect car!

Genesis G70 So I waited a year before writing a review as I wanted to experience a full "cycle" with them before posting this. First the sales and the purchasing process could not have been better. Between Matt and Jim they, in a low key way, showed me the features, let me test drive and answered all my questions. I had a price in mind having done my research and they beat my price! Upon purchasing, I, again, was given tour and instructions on features. Jim helped program everything for me. Jim introduced me to Michael in service and Michael welcomed me to the Nielsen family, told me if an employee ever sees a Nielsen car on the side of the road, they look for the Nielssen name on the plate holder, they are instructed to stop and help. First and every service has been by the book and first rate! Car is returned running like a top and clean and shiny. I look forward to my next Genesis and my next purchase from Nielsen!
