  • Blessed Experience

    Absolutely great car buying experience. Was treated very well as soon as we stepped on the lot until the time we left. Easy people to deal with that really know how to treat a customer. Bought our car and are tickled to death with the quality and cleaniness of the vehicle. Ask to speak with Moe and he will take care of you!! Will recommend McMinn Motors to anyone!! Such a blessing from God to be able to deal with these great people!

  • Easy Car Buying

    Super knowledgeable staff. Very friendly. Upfront, no games, no lies or gimmicks. They provide a 6 month warranty on their vehciles that can be extended if you want as well which is something I have never found elsewhere. They will take care of any problem if there is one. Will definitely go back to them if I'm in need of a new car again. They made me feel super comfortable, never pressured. We drove over two hours 3 times just to come to this dealership, and it was well worth it. I couldn't be happier wil my new Camry.

  • Wow! Honest, Professional, Quick, and Quality

    I have been looking for my 2012 Lexus for quite some time, and from the time I actually found it online at McMinn Motors to driving it out of the parking lot was less than 24 hours. IT IS PERFECT AND I LOVE IT!! Chris and Moe were very helpful, real, and committed to a positive experience for me. I will highly recommend this dealership to my family and friends. The drive from Knoxville was well worth avoiding the typical 8 hour wait in traditional dealerships to accomplish the same goal! Great price, too! Bye, bye Carmax! Thank you both very much!

  • Worth the Drive

    I had been searching for a 2012 Volvo S60 T5 for some time. Each time I thought I had found one with potentinal, something was discovered which led me to pass on what seemed a car with promise. Then I found the vehicle at McMinn Motors; right down to the color combination that I wanted. Drove to Athens to check things out, down to the service information for the vehicle. Chris was forthcoming. I bought the car before leaving the lot. In Knoxville, I had the car evaluated by a top shelf European vehicle service facilty staffed by certified ASE Master Technicians using state-of-the-art computerized engine diagnostic systems. Suspension, transmission, electrical, cooling, air, fuel, and brake systems all checked out without any problems. No service codes of any kind were identified in any of the car's computer modules. I guess this is why McMinn Motors has been in business for over 30+ years.

  • Great buying experience!

    We were extremely pleased with the quality selection, pricing, and customer service provided. I haven't, and won't be, losing any sleep over this purchase.

  • I am very pleased

    I am very please with my car I purchased from this lot. They made the purchase of my Honda so easy. Chris and his family are great people to deal with. It was an hour drive for me down but so worth it. I will be purchasing from them again in years to come. Thank you so much for everything.

  • Most professional and pleasant experiences

    Dealing with McMinn Motors was one of the most professional and pleasant experiences I've ever had in the car world! They are honest, caring and go over and above for their customers. I would highly recommend them to anyone and I will certainly be going to them again whenever I need another automobile. There isn't one thing negative I can say about them. A 10+ experience! 

    -- by Kim Foxx from Nashville, TN on May 30, 2016

  • Great experience.

    Great experience. No pressure and no nonsense. Straight forward deal. Would recommend them to anyone and would definitely do business with them again.

  • Great Experience and Smooth Transaction

    I recently bought a car from McMinn Motors from Chris. It was a great experience and smooth transaction. I test drove several cars on the lot before I found the right one for me. Chris was very knowledgeable about the vehicles and was patient with me and not pushy at all. I would definitely recommend this car lot to friends and will do business with them again in the future.

  • Top Notch Service

    My parents have purchased four cars from this dealer and my brother one. After searching for several months, I located the perfect 2011 Toyota RAV4 Limited at this dealer. The car appeared to be in excellent condition in the on-line photos and to my delight the condition was even better when I visited for a test drive. It didn't take long for me to decide that I loved it and made plans to secure financing and return on Monday. My only worry was that someone might

  • Courteous

    Just bought my new to me 2006 BMW from these folks. The service and courteous manner of everyone there is remarkable. I encourage everyone in the market for a vehicle to give these people a look see. You won't regret it....Thanks Chris and all

  • Very happy with the experience

    Recently purchased an Accord from lot and was very happy with the experience. Not a lot of negotiating room on the prices but sticker was right at NADA value for the car. I believe we got a very fair price. They were very patient with us returning several times before purchase and they followed up on promises after the purchase was made. I do highly recommend this lot.

  • I absolutely love these guys!

    I absolutely love these guys! They made us feel important and they're so sweet! Also,we just had great conversation in the process! And I am in love with my 2012 Honda Civic

  • Most honest and fair individuals we've ever worked

    My husband and I worked with the owners (the Zarrineh family) of McMinn Motors, and we can truly say that they are some of the most honest and fair individuals we've ever worked with. They stood by their word through each step of the process, and acted with integrity the entire time. We were grateful for their honesty and integrity, especially in an industry where many sellers do not possess such qualities.

    -- by Erica Oesch from Hixon, TN on June 6, 2015

  • They were very nice and helpful!

    They were very nice and helpful! I love my car! I would recommend family members and friends to this place.

    -- by Mollie Swallows from Harriman, TN on January 24, 2015

  • Great Experience. Loved the people and the cars

    Very helpful in purchasing a vehicle. We purchased one from them because of the quality of the vehicles, warranty they provide, and their kindness and help in making decisions when buying. They helped me with my trade in value of my old car to help in paying the taxes, title and license plate transfers. Very thankful we went there and meet these fine car dealers. Very pleasant experience. No pressure. Very helpful.

  • Great Customer Service

    We purchased a Jeep for our daughter and Chris took great care of telling us all about the vehicle and about the history of the vehicle so we felt comfortable with our purchase.

    -- by Jeep Fan Family from Cleveland, TN on November 5, 2014

  • Very good buying experience

    I called about a specific vehicle and received a very detailed description about the car and the dealership. I was pleased to learn that McMinn Motors is a family business and that they had been in business for over 30 years. We set up a time to test drive the vehicle. Everything was as described and the vehicle performed perfectly. The sale took only a few minutes. One person handled everything. It was nice not to have to talk to two or three other people to make the sale. We compared this vehicle with many others, and it was the best deal. We are very satisfied.

    -- by Richard Doughty from Crossville, TN on August 28, 2014

  • Great Customer Service

    This is a great place to buy a car. There is not a bad car on the lot. The people that own the dealership are very well mannered and will help any way they can. I will buy another car from them in the future. Great Customer Service.

  • Great Experience And A Great Van!

    This was my second vehicle purchase from McMinn Motors. They are alwasy very friendly and knowledgeable. They went out of the way to help me with the sale and made it as quick and efficient as possible. I also love the fact that they offer a free warranty. This an excellent place of business with quality products and service. I will definitely be back for car #3.

  • Great Place to Buy a Car!

    My wife was bitten by the "Mazda Miata MX-5" bug. After weeks of searching for suitable vehicles on local dealer lots and online, we found a car we were interested in at McMinn Motors. We finally decided to make the nearly three hour drive to see the car first hand and pleasantly discovered that the car looked exactly as described in the 32 photos and the write-up that we viewed on McMinn Motors website. The entire team at McMinn Motors is a please to deal with. They are a family business that takes great pride in their reputation. Chris is a great young man that is enthusiastic about his job. He maintains and updates the website daily. His dad knows the business end of closing a deal very well and makes the buying process very easy. He even traveled with us to the local County Court Clerk's office to help us register the car after the purchase. His two uncles also work there, and they were very helpful to assist in whatever way was needed. They do not try to pressure anyone into making a purchase, and they have an excellent attitude toward customer service when making a deal. They rightly deserve the A+ rating they have from the Better Business Bureau. You owe it to yourself to visit McMinn Motots if you are looking to purchase a used vehicle. We think we got a great deal on a great car and made some new friends along the way.

  • Great Experience

    My daughter and I found a great car online at McMinn Motors. I was worried that the car's description was too good to be true, and this was a concern since we were traveling 2 hours to get there. When we arrived and checked out the car we were pleasantly surprised. The car was as good as its description! Additionally, we noticed a number of good looking used autos available. See Chris; he's an enthusiastic young man who is proud of his family's 30 years in business and he wants to keep their strong reputation in tact. We've had the car one week, had it put up on a rack and checked by mechanics and all is good. We are happy campers!

    -- by Gail Burchette from Newport, TN on June 28, 2013

  • Honest and personable service is what counts!

    McMinn Motors Inc. helped me end my many months of searching for an amazing car at an amazing price. I only wish I had known about their amazing deals sooner. When I got on the lot I found myself surrounded by "too good to be true" deals on almost all the vehicles. The best part is that they are the real deal. Also, all of the staff was extremely helpful. When my bank in Chattanooga had forgotten to sign the check, one of their staff members drove all the way down to Chattanooga with us to get the check. I know where to look first for my next car now.

  • Customer Service

    I think this place knows what customer service is all about. I bought a SUV from them and a couple of days later the check engine light came on. I took it back expecting it to be a small problem. It actually turned out to be something about the computer in the transmission and they quickly found the problem and offered to give my money back or put in a replacement transmission with a lot less miles at no cost to me. They were so apologetic and nice even though it wasn't anything I believe they knew about before hand. You always take a chance when buying a used car but great customer service like that is what makes customers keep coming back. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MCMINN MOTORS INC.

  • Best used car Dealership!!

    Me and my husband recently purchased a used 05 Nissan Pathfinder from Mcminn Motors. We recomend stoping by, just see for yourself how well they are. Great customer service, very honest about their vehicles and their family owned business! They go above and beyond to make sure your car buying experience is the best and easy as possible! We will go back to Mcminn Motors for many years to come! A big huge thankyou to the guys at Mcminn motors!!

  • Great, Awesome, Right!

    Great car, awesome service, priced right. Would buy from these guys again. Highly recommended!

  • Good cars that are reliable

    I bought a 96 Camry V6 LE American Edition here when I graduated from High School in 2000. Everyone was really cool and the car ran great for the entirety of my ownership with it. These guys know how to buy good cars that are reliable and then sell them to the public. Nice hometown atmosphere as well.

    -- by Daniel Dycus on August 09, 2012

  • Friendly and Professional Service

    Very friendly service as well as honest about each and every car. The latest vehicle will be our third purchased from them, all without issues. They were even nice enough to repair a leaking tire that they were in no way obligated to repair. Exceptional quality in both their customer service as well as their attitudes. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an honest car dealer.

    -- by New RX-8 owner from Athens, TN on July 17, 2012

  • This was the most genuine dealership!
    This was the most genuine dealership you could ever ask for. They went far beyond than what most people will do for you. They have better prices, quality, and provide you with a warranty. No other used car place will do that for anyone! They answered my email on the spot and were truthful with me the whole way! I wish there were more dealers like this! I will definitely buy my next car from them. Ask for Chris. He is an honest guy and will do you right!!!
