Douchette Family - 2007 Toyota Sienna

Thank you John and Michelle for getting the minivan we needed! The process was easy and they never pressured us. We went to other dealerships and found this to be the best! Thank you Winnisquam Auto, our new family dealer!

Desiree - 2006 Toyota Matrix

My family and I would like to thank John Mcdermott the salesman, John the owner and Michelle the finance Director. They truly are our family car dealership. It is so refreshing to go in and be listened to instead of being pressured into a sale we don't want. This is our 3rd car with Winnisquam Auto and they have all been clean and came with a car fax (that we didn't even ask for). We would recommend them to anyone looking for a FAMILY DEALERSHIP for life, like we are!

What can I say?! Bigger is not always better. After shopping at the "Big" stores and getting the run around. I called Winnisquam Auto because they had the Jeep I was looking for.

They addressed my concerns got me a great rate and I would recommend then to anyone who is looking for a car. So again thanks to John and the crew for helping me and making it fun and easy!"


This was my first car purchase. I had been looking for a Subaru with lower miles that was in my budget. After searching for weeks I finally found this car. I was a little wary of going through a smaller dealer, not knowing if I should go with them over a Subaru dealership. Buddy was great, not too pushy, which was perfect for my being new to the process. The price was pretty fair, and they detailed and put new tires on the car before I picked it up. I went back a month later for an oil change and they were great. Their guys in the shop were honest and knowledgeable and gave me advice for going forward with the maintenance. Also, the car is fantastic. With all the weather the last few months, I have always been safe and able to drive through anything. They sold me a solid vehicle and I'm very happy with my purchase.


Winnisquam Auto was my first car purchasing experience. My sales rep John M made me feel very comfortable and was very helpful through the whole process. Alicia made the whole paperwork process quick and painless for me. I would strongly recommend Winnisquam Auto for any auto needs.


I have bought two cars here. Each time I looked around at multiple dealers sites and the combination of quality cars and the low prices were the best around at Winnisquam Auto. The sales staff knows their stuff, very knowledgeable about the pros and cons of different models and makes. At no time did I feel pressured. They stand behind their cars, too. Next time I buy a car I am going to start my search here. I suspect it will end here as well, just like the last two times.


I love the experience that all the processes went so smoothly, without selling other unwanted cars, without hiding information. The guy named Buddy is of great help! He is very reliable, explained all the information for the cars, and leaving the customer to make their own decision. He even provided some practical tips for maintenance. It was so nice of them to have provided to clean up the car after the deal was done, when the car looked already pretty clean to me. I must admit that they are the kind of honest dealers who are rarely found these days.


After searching the region for a 4x4 Toyota Tacoma (and looking at nearly 30 different Tacomas), I returned to Winnisquam Auto to revisit a 2002 truck that caught my early interest. It became clear that Winnisquam had the best value among the dozen or so dealers that we visited. I was pleasantly surprised to experience a no pressure, no haggling, highly professional transaction. The entire staff was attentive, very helpful, and quite knowledgeable. When we returned to take delivery several days later, they had thoroughly cleaned the car and had completed the short list of items that they agreed to address. Winnisquam Auto redefines what a "used car purchase" looks like. These guys are the real deal. They are customer centered, honest, and a great group of professionals. I highly recommend this dealership.


I cannot say enough about the team at Winnisquam Auto. From the salesman Jaime down to the people who detail the vechicles that are sold, to the owner John Bernard. Outstanding in everyway. Our credit was less than perfect, and we did not think we could get a car loan. The salesman Jaime was a very Honest and personable person from the start. The owner was very friendly and honest. When we decide it is time for another car or truck, we will be going to see them again. I have already recommended Winnisquam to my friends who are looking for another vechicle. Hands down the place to buy a car or truck.


Words cannot express how salesman John Mcdermott, and owner John Bernard went above and beyond their job descriptions to help my wife and I as a young family on our journey to establishing credit and gaining knowledge of how the credit system works. Day and night phone calls and descriptive conversations on the quite confusing topic all contribute to what makes this company so wonderful. We did not at this time receive a vehicle from them, but with their continuous help we look forward to in the near future working a new vehicle into our life from them. The respect and courtesy that I have received from these two wonderful individuals have exceeded any company that I have worked with before in the used car buying process, John M treated my family like his personal family and it was an experience that made me feel special and to know that I was happy in the end knowing that a salesman exist that does not push you into buying the first thing you show interest in and showing that they care about you as an individual meant the world to me. I will continue to brag for the rest of my life about this company and will hope that whoever is reading this understands that Winnisquam Auto is the true place to call Home for all your auto needs because to me they make you feel at home and they treat you like Family. Thanks from the bottom of my heart and I can not express enough how much we appreciate everything you have done and continue to do for my family. You will see us in the near future buying a car from you as soon as we get our credit in tip top shape and we will spread your name throughout the nation.


After a classic bait & switch from Grappone in Concord, I found a used Saturn listed on Craigs List that looked very nice at Winnisquam Auto. When I got there, not only was the Saturn available, but there were at least 3 other vehicles in my price range (about $4,000) that looked really nice. I settled on a Honda Accord because it would be just a little more useful and still gets great gas mileage. No pressure sales from John McD and very nice job by Alicia getting the financing and paperwork done. They serviced the vehicle before the sale and everything looks great so far.


Winnisquam Auto was great to deal with. Our used car purchase was by far the best experience we have ever had. John McDermott was an awesome salesman making sure that we were nothing less than satisfied with our purchase. Alicia in financing was also awesome. We will definitely be recommending Winnisquam Auto to everyone we know that is in the market for a vehicle. Our thanks to all of you.


Winnisquam Auto treated us great in the used car buying process. Our salesman John McDermott was excellent. He provided us with terrific customer service. He has a solid knowledge of cars, and he worked hard for us to meet our needs, and did so in a very timely manner as well. Alicia in the Financing Office was excellent also and helped us get financing on a decent used car that we could afford. This dealership is great and we have already recommended it to several others. Thanks Winnisquam Auto!


LOVE you guys. I think I got a superior deal. As someone who wishes for a good car at a reasonable price, I doubt you can be beat. The car (2001 Honda Civic Sedan) looks SO GOOD for it's age AND drove home like a dream. Best ride I've had in quite a few years. Thanks Buddy and Alicia!


I am very happy with my experience with Winnisqaum Auto. Bud and John were very helpful and honest with me. I felt no pressure to buy a vehicle and they treated very well with my trade in vehicle. Thank you everyone at Winnisqaum Auto.


Purchasing a vehicle with our son was amazing with Bud, at Winnisquam Auto. We had looked at a few cars and wanted to make sure that our son was safe in a vehicle that would last him for several years. Working with Bud was great, with his laid back attitude and absolutely no pressure, we where given details on the cars that we where looking at. What wasn't known about the car was looked up to give us the correct details. We where so pleased with the entire office, the financing choices where so easy and everything was explained in clear details so everyone understood. We are pleased that we had the pleasure of meeting the staff at Winnisquam Auto and have been recommending them to everyone we know. Oh ya, the coffee is really good too!


Winnisquam Auto was great to deal with. You can tell that they search very hard to find vehicle that are not clunkers. It is difficult to find an older Toyota Corolla that is in great condition but they sold me one that is absolutely mint. Highly recommend John and his dealership!


This is the first time that I've purchased a car on my own since 1975. John and Craig at Winnisquam Auto made this experience enjoyable and without stress. I would highly recommend this dealership!


Pleasure doing business with the owner at Winnisquam Auto in NH. Bought a nice Nissan xTerra and got a fair price for our trade it. Would easily do business with him again. He took the time to see us on a day off and the sale was smooth and fair (and I hate buying cars). Thank you Winnisquam Auto!!


My girlfriend and I have been searching for a used car for her 18y/o daughter since her accident 3/27/13. With absolutely nothing in our price range of $6-8000 with under 100k miles I started to call on friends for help. My good friend Bill from New Hampshire told me to call his friend John at Winnisquam Motors. We live on the coast of CT approx 180 miles south. I called John and left a message at 10pm Tuesday evening. John promptly returned my call at 830am Wednesday. After discussing our dilemma John offered us a few options. To make a long story short we put a deposit on an 03 Saturn that John recommended and arranged for a Friday am delivery. We made the 3 hour trip and the car was even better than he had explained to us. The paperwork side of things went smoother than usual even though we did pay cash, and the staff was amazing. Michelle already had our paperwork typed before we got there, Craig was professional and more than courteous with the rest of the paperwork/title/registration stuff and Mo took care of the delivery aspect of things. If you are serious about buying a high quality used car, you will not be disappointed with a trip to Winnisquam motors - they are totally worth the drive from anywhere !!! Thank you again WM. Alissa and Tony


So far so good. They fixed everything I asked them to fix. No issues right now. Buddy was easy to deal with. I would recommend them.


What a great discovery! Really dislike buying cars, but searched out a particular make and model, Winnisquam Auto came up. Called, spoke to the owner, and right away felt I could trust him. Tested the car next morning and worked out a win win deal seamlessly, but that was just the beginning. He felt something might be wrong and would not release the car until he was 100% certain I would not have any problems. I had a couple of mechanics check it out, they made some suggestions, and No Problem! the dealer made any and all repairs these mechanics had suggested without challenge or dispute, in spite of a considerable amount of investment in labor and parts. I waited on site, met the rest of his staff, and found all of them to be amazingly helpful and friendly. I've already passed his name on to several friends and saved a few business cards to hand out to anyone looking. Who would have thought that I'd EVER write such a review of a car dealership!! But they deserve it!


I purchased my first car here. And I'm really satisfied with their service. The owner is down to earth. Very reliable!


found this car after many months of searching. Almost bought one from one of their competitors who deals exclusively with BMWs, but could not reach a deal with them that suited both of us. They were unwilling to come to a price I could afford so I had to walk away. This happened twice to me. Was very disappointed after I had driven 2 1/2 hours to look at these cars, but it actually turned out for the best. I found this one, worked with Buddy, then closed the deal with John. Very nice to work with, very honest and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a used car. Thank you guys and I LOVE this car!


Bought a 2003 Honda Accord and love it. Everyone a Winnisquam auto from the owner John Bernard to the salesman I worked with John McDermott were extremely helpful and guided me through the process like I was family. Never any pushy tactics or anything you'd expect from a car dealer. I tried to purchase a car through them a couple years back but couldn't secure the financing. I had such a great experience even though I wasn't able to get a car then, that I came back when I was ready to purchase again. I had a little snag with financing again but, everyone there was more than helpful and patient to work with me to get it straightened out. Alicia in financing walked me through the whole process so that I could understand it better. (First time actually purchasing a car through a dealer) Just a great experience all around top notch owner, salesman, and financing staff. Will definitely buy my next car from them as well. Thanks a lot to everyone at the dealership!
