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.

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!
by G and S 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.

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.
by Steely Dan 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!!

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!

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.
by Renee 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!
by The Osborns 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.
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.

"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!!!
by Bob and Barb from Fergus Falls |
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...
"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 bought a new half ton GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLT pickup from Nelson's. My salesman was Mark Morris and it was just great to work with him. We did the sale over the phone and it worked out very well. Mark was so professional and organized - very easy to work with. I couldn't have been more pleased. I will be recommending Nelson's to my friends and family as the place to buy a vehicle."

Mark Morris made it so easy to get us into our new Fusion! The whole staff was kind and courteous from start to finish. They are also great with follow up calls to make sure you were completely satisfied with your buying experience.

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.

Jim Boid made my purchase super simple, super fast and super painless. Thanks for all of your help.
5.0 out of 5.0 Great Experience
by MJ 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!
by Mike 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!!!
by D&K 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.
by Walkers 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!"

We recently purchased a new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup from Nelson GMC in Fergus Falls, MN. We worked with Brian Beck as our salesman and was very happy with his pleasant professional manner during the whole buying experience. We also worked with Craig W., Mike T. and Elliot G. during the proccess who also were very professional and accommodating. We will definitely recommend to anyone wanting to purchase a new vehicle to visit Nelon GMC in Fergus Falls. Dennis and Becky Jorud

I bought a pickup at Nelson Auto Center this weekend from Brian Beck. I was very happy with the way Brian let me decide without pressuring me to buy. I was happy that he had personally checked the vehicle over knowing I had a long drive to get there. I felt reassured that Nelson Auto Center was representing the vehicle to the best of their knowledge. All things considered I would happily recommend Nelson Auto and Brian Beck to anyone looking for a good buying experience.
LakeGirl ? - Oct 18, 2011
I am so thrilled with my Yukon Denali! I researched some different vehicles on the internet and Brian helped answer my questions and narrow down my choices. Everyone was so friendly and really made me feel good about a process I wasn't looking forward to. Thanks Nelson Staff!
Garden Goddess- Aug, 1, 2011
Excellent experience! We found the truck we wanted on the web. We
found the deal in Fergus at Nelson Auto. Brian Beck put the two together and
delivered the exact truck we wanted (from Grand Forks) and gave us the Nelson
Auto pricing. They worked with Wells Fargo to get us a great rate on a loan! When
we picked up our vehicle it had the plates on it and a FULL tank (32 gal) of
gas. Very easy transaction! Thank you Brian and Nelson Auto Team!
by Ken & Twila 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.
by Tom and Cecelia 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.

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.

Went to Nelson Auto Center to buy a used mini-van. However, after meeting with Jeff Christenson and having him highlight some of the programs we left with two new vehicles! There were no high pressure sales, just establishing a good understanding of our needs and presenting buying options that would work for us. One of the vehicles we were going to buy in the spring but with the pricing we were offered we decided to buy now. Everyone we met with during our buying process were very helpful and courteous. Overall an excellent experience.

Very accommodating and friendly, salesperson was very helpful and easy to communicate with and was willing to answer all questions and went above and beyond to help us with our purchase. Jeff Christenson was our salesman.
by Alexis Nelson from Battle Lake |
We had Jeff Christenson as our dealer on our new 2013 F150. He was really friendly honest and helpful. I would totally recommend him as a dealer for his all his help he is willing to give in purchasing a vehicle. Thanks to Jeff Christenson and Nelson Ford we are proud new owners of a beautiful black ford truck!
by Brenda, satisfied customer from Detroit Lakes,MN |
We purchased a new car from Nelson 's. Jeff was our salesman and he found us exactly what we were looking for. He went above and beyond as we'll as the other staff to make it a very pleasurable experience. Everything went very smooth and we were soon driving off in our new car. I feel they also gave us a very fair price on our trade-in. I would recommend anyone looking for a new or used vehicle go to Nelson's in Fergus Falls. We drove down there from Detroit Lakes and it was definitely worth the drive. We also bought tires for my husband's pickup because they had a buy 3 and get 1 free deal going on. Thank you Jeff and also to all the other great staff at Nelson's! We love our new vehicle!
by L Wifall from Pelican Rapids, MN |
I'm a very happy new owner of a used SUV from Nelson's. The staff was very accommodating, and stayed late to finish up paperwork for me and make the sale. I feel that I got a great vehicle for the price and I will shop Nelson's again in the future! Thank you Jeff Christenson and everyone else I had dealings with to purchase my SUV.
Great facility and low pressure but direct sales By David and Laurie from Fergus Falls, MN | May 19, 2013
My wife and I purchased a 2010 Ford Escape through my friend Jeff Christenson. Jeff was very accommodating and was gracious with his time in allowing us to test drive two separate vehicles. Once the deal was completed he genuinely offered his assistance in case we had questions or concerns in the upcoming days/weeks. The financing was explained systematically and in detail by Elliot. Great experience overall.

Taylor H spent over 4 hours with me over the course of this deal. The used vehicle I had come to look at was not what I expected, so he showed me several others, including a new 2016 Explorer which had all the features I wanted- for less than the used vehicle.. After agreeing on the trade-in difference and making the deal, Taylor was very thorough and patient in showing me all the features of the new vehicle. He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. The only negative was a long wait to see the finance guy to do the paperwork. I would highly recommend Taylor and the dealership to anyone.

Do not hesitate one bit about buying your next auto from here. Seriously, that is how easy Nelson Ford makes it. I had a RWD Toyota Tundra that no other dealership was willing to work with me because it wasn't a 4x4. Of course living in North Dakota, it's really a necessity. Thanks to Nelson Ford, not only did they take my truck, they put me in a STUNNING F-150 4×4!! When you go, ask for Taylor Haggstrom. He will go out of his way to nothe make you feel pressured and is genuinely a nice person to work with. Thanks again Taylor.

The team at Nelson Auto Center made my dream truck a reality. I knew exactly what I wanted and wasn't finding it anywhere. Just when I was ready to give up, I came across THE truck on Cars.com. Thinking I could never be so lucky, I sent an internet inquiry. Ayla immediately took charge. The truck was front and center at the door when I arrived. They sure know how to make a gal feel important! Ayla introduced me to Taylor and Taylor and Elliott sent me home in my dream truck that evening with a deal I felt good about. I can't thank them enough for staying late on a Monday night to work with me. I drove home on Cloud Nine. Thank you so much for your friendly and professional approach & for making my dream a reality!

Leased a 2016 Ford Edge

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.

We went in because we bought our last car at Nelson and we were happy with the salesman and the service department. We were looking for a used car but didn't see anything we liked so Darren showed us the new cars. We told him our "must haves" and he found a car that met all our needs. The car had just been delivered the evening before and wasn't even on the lot yet. Nevertheless Darren brought the car around and we loved it. We worked out the deal and told Darren that we would pick it up the next day. Darren and the finance person had the paperwork ready when we went in and Darren went through the car with us explaining all the features. An excellent experience!!

With the Great Customer Focus that Nelson Ford has, theres NO other place I would rather do business with. The Sales Staff is Number One in my book. Darrin, my Sales Rep is top knotch and Focused on doing what he can to make sure that the Customer Experience is what it should be. The Finance Department is Excellent as well as the Sevice Dept. If something isn't right the Service Department has always made sure that the Customer is taken care of. That has been my experience with them. I have had several Company Vehicles Serviced at Nelson Ford as well as have puchaced 4 cars from them over the years. There is something to be said for a returning customer. There are alot of options out there these days and theres a reason why I keep coming back to Nelson Ford. They Are Focused on the Customer and treating them the way it should be. Its been my experience that theres no other place I would rather go than to Nelson Ford.

Darren Herman and the team at Nelson Auto were kind, honest, helpful, and a joy to work with. The 2 hour drive was worth it and we will definitely return, and refer others. Thank you Darren, and thank you to the finance team for all of the help!!
