ecently my car was hit while parked on the street. After my insurance company claimed my car a total loss I received a moderate settlement. My shopping range was a bit limited, but I used CarGurus to find everything I want in a car. I looked for about a week and narrowed it down to two places, and two cars. A Mitsubishi eclipse..(that was before I test drove one from another dealer and found out the visibility is horrible and the car has a turn radius of road island..) and a Mitsubishi lancer ES.. this car kept calling for me. I originally left an email with market place auto and Jim, one of the dealers called me promptly. He answered every single one of my questions knowledgeably he was extremely polite and followed up every step of the way. It was a bit higher than what I had after taxes so I first decided to go to another place. The other place was greasy and super ghetto (that's where I drove the eclipse) I did tell Jim I was looking at it and he didn't lose patience with me. Like a complete professional, Jim responded that he'll be around all day if I decide to come to him.. He actually came in from his day off! I informed him my credit wasn't the greatest at the moment but he ensured me that we could figure something out. Anyway I slipped out of the other dealership pretty quick and went straight to Puyallup. Upon arrival Jim greeted me the second I stepped out of my rental car with the lancer keys in his hands. He was extremely polite and presented him self professionally, didn't reeked of alcohol like the other guy, and let me take my time examining the vehicle. He even showed me a newer model eclipse they had, and although it was in better condition than the other one. It didn't fit what I wanted. Once I was done looking around I noticed the oil needed a change and the key fob wasn't working. I made a comment and then we got onto the test drive. The car was amazing! It handled well, I had great visibility and the car had amazing turn radius amongst other great things about the car. The car has obviously been well kept. It even smelt like new car. So we finished the test drive and I decided to buy. It did take a bit to get everything arranged but while I was waiting Jim had the car taken out to their shop and had everything fixed. Once everything was squared, I needed to take my rental car back to the rental and Jim drove my car to the rental shop for me so I could leave from there! There was no hassle. Over all I can't be more glad I went to this place.
2*No tricks.
3*Followed through.
4*great car selection.
5* well maintained.
6* (there's no option for 6* but I'd give it to them because they truly went out of their way for me)
I would recommend any family or friends here. Don't go anywhere else if you're shopping used. Otherwise you're waisting time and you'll end up here anyway.

I had a great experience, met Josh Zumda on his first day and went for a nice long test drive. Was treated well, was able to negotiate a good deal that kept me within my budget. I got a nice car with a good warranty at a reasonable price. Very satisfied.

RJ May - 2011 Toyota Venza


We've been to a lot of car dealers over the years, new and used. We were always treated kindly and with respect by Kimberly and Jim Stroble at Market Place Auto(Except for the old guy who is a mechanic wearing his pants down around the middle of his butt crack; I hate that). That's a big deal to me. I believe the way you are treated speaks volumes about the kind of dealership they are. And believe me when I say I've experienced the gammet of treatment. I got a great deal on the car I purchased as well as a great interest rate.(I have great credit. That matters) Dave the manager worked hard to help us get a great rate and worked with us on the details of the deal. I also had the car checked out at Greg's which only verified that we got a great deal. I would recommend Market Place Auto to anyone.

This was my 3rd stop for the day shopping for a car. Josh Zmuda was perfect. Personable, understanding, friendly, knowledgeable. He didn't play games. I told him what I was looking for and we happily test drove 4 cars. When I decided on the right one, we got started on the paperwork. Together with Rod in financial, we came to a price $100 lower than I was paying for my previous car and got the 2 year warranty on top of it. These guys were pros and no hustle, no bullying. Just nice guys trying to get someone into a great car. Thank you!! I'll recommend you and I'll be back.

Best experience I ever had buying a vehicle! Very welcoming and not pushy at all. They answered all my questions & helped me with everything I needed. Mike Wheeler was such a help and made sure I was happy the whole time. Very easy to talk to & I couldn't be more happy. I had troubles with the vehicle.A couple days after the sale and Marketplace fixed all the issues, !!! I will recommend to all my friends and family to go there to buy a vehicle and defiantly will be coming back! I am so happy with my truck!!
