Anand Persaud - 2014 Chevrolet Impala

Very nice people, easy to work with and honest.

John and Carol Meyer - 2014 Kia Forte

Our sales person Jake was very pleasant and helpful in providing us information on 3 cars, one of which we purchased. This is our second sales experience at Velishek, and would recommend this dealership in the future. Great Work!

Bob Burwell - 2012 Ford Escape

Spenser + Jake, Thanks for working with me to get my 2012 Ford Escape. I love driving it. My drive home was very enjoyable. It was about a 230 mile drive + I got over 28 mpg. Awesome!

Cody Hoffman - 2014 Ford Police Interceptor Sedan

Awesome sales crew to work with for being 2+ hours away. Answered any question I had and worked with me and kept me in the loop of updates. Would highly recommend to others to buy and service here.

Hannah Silva-Breen - 2011 Ford Fusion

I came in on the defensive already, especially being young, and buying my first car. You made it easy, comfortable, and fast! Thank you so much!

Shawn and Teresa Beaudette - 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring-L

There are many options for buying a car in the Prior Lake area. Not only did Velishek have the best price on the minivan we wanted, but Jake made the entire sales process simple, hassle free, and overall very enjoyable. The service we have gotten from the entire Velishek team has been outstanding! We highly recommend them to all south metro residents.

Doug Wilder - 2016 Dodge Journey

Sales, It was a delight to work with Jake Voltz on the purchase of a used 2016 Dodge Journey. The price was excellent for this vehicle. He got me a better interest rate than my own bank that I have been with for the past 22 years. When I'm ready to trade again I will definitely look up Velishek Auto Sales.

Service, I had a problem with the Garmin navigation system and John in service took care of it. It was a bigger problem than we thought, but he stayed at it until it was fixed, took a couple hours to get the problem solved bet he got it done...I want to thank John for his patience, HE WAS AWESOME!!!

Karen and Darrell Bramer - 2015 Nissan Altima

I must tell you how great (and fun) it has been working with Jake Voltz on a purchase of a new used car. Finished the deal today for a white 2015 Nissan Altima. He is a joy to work with! Wouldn't go to anyone else and as you know we keep referring others to you as well! It is nice to know we can trust some one in the car business that has a good reputation!

Dean & Kate Wohlers - 2011 Chevrolet Malibu

Mike was very informative and helpful. We would recommend Velishek to others. Thank you and will stop back for our next purchase!

John and Pam Osendorf - 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan

We talked with both Jake and Michael. Both were very friendly and easy to work with. We liked that we were able to walk the lot with no pressure. I thought the prices were reasonable and would shop here again for future car needs.

Cathi Doroff - 2009 Ford Escape

Working with Jake was awesome! He even made sure their glass guys replaced the windshield which had a chip in it. They came right to my house to replace it! Love the vehicle I bought! Couldn't be happier with Velishek!

Zach - 2007 Saturn ion

I really appreciated how honest Jake was and I wasn't being pushed to the most expensive car.  Thanks for the great customer service Velishek!

Delight Klancke - 2005 Hyundai Tucson

Jake was a great salesman to work with, as well as Spenser and Michael. Great experience all around and will definitely refer others to you for their auto needs!!

Pat & Rosemary Devitt - 2012 Chrysler Town & Country

 We have been a long time satisfied customer of Velishek Auto Company. We want to share with you our appreciation with our dealings with your service manager, John Oliva. As you know we come with our vehicle issues. Some are easily identified others require more investigation. John always welcomes us, listens to our story of the problem and then provides us with his professional advice in what needs to be done. Then he diligently keeps us advised on the progress. In conclusion, we are happy with your service department and its manager, John Oliva.

Sarah and Scott Andrus - 2015 Honda Civic LX

Jake gave us exceptional service on our purchase of a 2015 Honda Civic. Very satisfied with his knowledge and help.

Kent Wheelock - 2006 Hyundai Elantra

This posting definitely falls under the "better late than never" category!  During
the last week of 2017, which was brutally cold, my wife and I needed to purchase a
reliable, low mileage car for one of our daughters.  Living on the east side and not
familiar with Velishek, I was hesitant to drive so far to look at a vehicle.
Instead, I relied upon the excellent pictures, and Michael was very responsive to my
numerous questions.  He even went to measure the remaining tread on the tires (the
wind chills were well below zero!)!  Within a couple of days we bought the 2006
Elantra with less than 30K miles and our daughter loves it.  I don't believe I've
ever experienced better customer service while buying a vehicle and I will
definitely return!

Adam Diekmann - 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe

Michael was very easy to work with, with living 3 hours away he communicated with me very well. He made my car buying experience very very easy and comfortable.

Jason Tupy - 1997 Chrysler Cirrus

Great cars at low prices. Staff are friendly & helpful.

Nick Reed - 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche

Mike was great, upfront, straightforward, and easy to work with! I will be sending future buyers his way.

James & Jeanie Michelizzi - 2011 Chevrolet Suburban 2500

Spenser was very nice to work with. He knows about cars very well.
Spenser was positive, enthusiastic, and helpful from our first phone call. He was knowledgeable and gave us information that is going to benefit us with our Suburban.~Jeanie

Cheryl Ehrich - 2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Michael was very easy to work with & I felt he was trustworthy. I recommend this auto sales place highly!

Susan Adams - 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan

We recently purchased a van from Velishek Auto. Our salesman, Jake was great to work with! He was upfront, helpful and knowledgeable. This is the 3rd van we have purchased there.  The last one is still running quite well with almost 200,000 miles on it. It required very little repair during the time we owned it. We highly recommend them!

ps. We also have satisfied family & friends who are Velishek customers.

Jeff & Paula Annala - 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan

Thank you so much for your excellent service from the time we drove in till we closed the deal. Everything was/is excellent! Thank You!

Sharon Strandemo - 2016 Chevrolet Cruze

I would recommend Velishek Auto Sales. They are very accommodating and professional. They have a nice selection of cars. Jake was a very kind and knowledgeable salesman. I'm really happy with my vehicle.

Susan Covington - 2016 Chevrolet Cruze

Great customer service, I felt very respected and guided in the difficult car purchasing process. Thank-you for everything as a third time client, I will definitely be coming back and referring others to you.

Lynn Anderson - 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer

We searched for a low mileage, good condition SUV. And we wanted to buy from a reputable auto dealer. A friend recommended Velishek Auto after we saw the SUV we were interested in. The staff was highly customer service oriented, went above and beyond what they needed to or what most dealers would. They also gave excellent advice on financing and warranty. We highly recommend this dealer and the team, Spenser & Jake.

Tracy Martinson - 2002 Ford Focus


I have only had my new car for 3 days but I absolutely love it!  Maybe its because my last car was a swiss cheese rusted, money pit disaster.  I couldn't be happier they took that off my hands as well. 


I purchased a 2002 Focus with just over 1K miles.  We had been actively searching for a replacement vehicle for at least 6 weeks and getting very discouraged with pristine pictures and wonderful but misleading descriptions of cars on other dealerships websites.  We found their cars in our price range had considerable issues when seen in person.  I asked my husband to go look at this one because Velishek's is so near our home. I honestly wasn't hopeful.  This car had by far the lowest miles (tens of thousands), least rust (really remarkable little rust for a 1K mile, MN car) of all the cars we looked at for our small budget. The interior is immaculate, even smells brand new.  It was one of their loaners and obviously taken care of very well.  The car fax is very clean. My husband looked at it with Mike and I came in to purchase the next day with Jake.  Both were great and it was painless experience. An added bonus of 15% off all future service and year of free road side assistance was icing on the cake.  I hope to drive this car for many years but I will be back at Velishek when I need another. 

Anthony & Mary Rebnord - 2012 Ford F150

Great Service! Excellent Job! Second vehicle purchase - plan on coming back for more!

Jill Boeser - 2012 Chevrolet Malibu

Jake did a fantastic job.  He listened to my needs, talked about the cars I liked, pros and cons.  He worked with me on my finances without feeling awkward. His personality and education are perfect for the job. Thanks Velishek for a great selection and affordable prices. I will definitely recommend to others.

Carl & Theresa Lonnquist - 2010 Honda Accord

We were in a bit of a rush today, but everyone we talked to at Velishek was friendly, helpful, and understanding.  They answered all our questions and made the whole process stress free! This isn't the first car we bought here, and it definitely won't be the last! Thank you!

Linda Mohr - 2003 Nissan Sentra

Michael is Awesome! We will definitely be back!

Dan & Dawn Plekkenpol - 2014 Toyota Camry

Jake was professional, personal and worked hard to meet our needs! This is the fourth vehicle we have purchased from Velishek and we will be back for more when the time comes. We are informed and picky consumers and Jake exercised patience and understanding throughout our buying experience. Thank you!!!   

Jennelle Donnay - 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe

Mike did a good job, didn't pressure us. Maybe more explanation on warranty options. Overall very good service. Thanks Mike!

Linda & Robert Scheeler - 2015 Subaru Forester

Once again...Incredible Personalized Service and great vehicle! Our appreciation for attention to detail and taking the time to answer our questions. Especially appreciate the time taken to "research" our difficult questions and always getting answers. We really like the entire staff from sales to service and beyond.

Brandon Crowson - 2016 Dodge Dart

Thank You! I really appreciate your help with everything. You definitely made the whole process smoother, and I wish I could say the same for everyone. Glad we came to a deal.

Dan Muench - 2007 Ford Five Hundred

Fast and Easy. We had no idea what we wanted, only a price range and Mike showed us what we needed.

Donald Hinz - 2012 Jeep Liberty

Spenser was such a pleasure to work with while purchasing our car. So down to earth, a real keeper.

Jennifer Clark - 2010 Ford Escape

This is the 2nd car we have bought from Velishek! We appreciate the no haggle process and believe the prices are extremely fair. Both Mike and Jake worked hard to get us the car we wanted!

Casey O'Neill - 2012 Ford Transit

Frank was straight forward and easy to work with.  Appreciate his help.  Also had help from Jake who communicates well.  It's nice to do business with a local dealer, would recommend Velishek to friends and family.

Brenda Mayberry - 2014 Ford Focus

The service was awesome.  This is the second car I bought from Velishek.  I inquired about three vehicles on-line and Spenser had them waiting for me the next day.  I won't go anywhere else to buy a car!

Gary Godfrey - 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier

Very nice car, good salesperson.

Barrett Hodgdon - 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

This was one of the best truck buying experiences! Our sales person Spenser was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to make sure we were comfortable/confident with our buying decision. We had one small issue with our Tahoe 2 days after our purchase and they were more than willing to fix the issue for us at no charge even though we had purchased our Tahoe "AS IS". I would definitely recommend them to all anyone who is looking for a great car/truck buying experience.

Jon & Steph Bagge - 2008 Honda Accord

We worked with Michael & Spenser on the purchase of our car...very professional and family friendly. We felt no pressure and look forward to future business.  Michael was quick and professional with paperwork and transaction!

Angel Eddy - 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee

THANK YOU THANK YOU! Mike and Jake were AMAZING! Patient and Kind, non-judgmental when I wanted to drive about half the vehicles on their lot! I went back and forth on a LOT of cars, but since their website is SO amazing and user friendly, it made the decision so much easier! They did a really great job on helping me with financing, and were incredibly friendly and answered any question I had! My fiancé had bought his Dodge Ram there last year, and we will both definitely be return customers! Very pleasant experience!

Dwight & Melissa Ackerson - 2006 Dodge Dakota

Jake was Great!

Jacki Lebak - 2007 Pontiac Vibe

Josh & Tina H. - 2011 Honda Odyssey

Thank you for the great service.

AJ Nelson - 2002 Ford Explorer

Best Car Dealer around. Worked very hard with me to get me in the car I wanted. So thankful!! Very Pleased.

Burt Buchen - 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

I tip my hat to Carsoup for leading me to Velishek Auto Sales in Prior Lake. They had the vehicle I had come to drive after reviewing the Web posting a number of times. The Ford Explorer Sport Trac was even better than I anticipated. It was priced fairly and a fair trade in value drew a handshake. Having spent a lifetime of feeling beat up, shamed and a loser taking the shine off each new vehicle, I am overjoyed with the Velishek deal that was respectful and FAIR. WE WERE BOTH WINNERS.

Mark Smelik - 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche

Nice Great Service!

Nyasha M - 2012 Toyota Yaris

Jake Voltz went above & beyond during the process. He was patient & cheerful throughout and I would recommend Velishek any day. Thanks Jake!!

Bernard Murphy - 2014 Toyota Corolla

Good quick service to the Point of Sale.

Perri Girouard - 2013 Ford F150

Recently had a great experience with buying a 2013 Ford F150 from Mike. Days after buying the truck, it was having a mechanical issue. Took it back to Velishek and had them look into the issue, was frustrated at first since I had just purchased it and although it had a limited warranty, it was not something that was covered by it. John and the whole service department team were more than amazing and actually fixed the issue at no cost and without question, even though they had no obligation to do so. This is the first truck I've purchased from Velishek, but I will continue to buy future vehicles and utilize their great repair shop, glad to find an honest sales/service dealership that stands behind what they sell you and treats customers in such a great way!

Paul & Jessica Focht-Perlberg - 2016 Ford Transit

Jake was Great! From my first call to the end. Everything was Fast and Easy! We will look here again when we need our next car.

Gary Benedict & Laura Mestler - 2005 GMC Yukon

Deborah Hanson Walters - 2007 Volkswagen Passat Wagon

T. Johnson - 2000 Dodge Dakota

I have been looking for a smaller truck for a while now, so when I saw a Dodge Dakota there with low miles I thought I would take a look at it. After dickering for a bit we agreed on a price & the salesman said that price is only good if you close tonight, but I need to talk to my wife. It was 630pm and they close at 7pm. I talked to the sales guy and he let me call by opening the next morning with an answer from them. I thought that was great, and really appreciated it. Next morning I put my deposit down and picked it up that evening. Drove it home, parked it in the drive, and came out the next day and it was leaking tranny fluid. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! I bought it "AS-IS", so legally Velishek was off the hook. I was pretty upset and called them up and they said bring it in and we'll see what we can do. Turns out it was just a leaky gasket from when they replaced the tranny pan. Velishek also took care of it free of charge; even though legally they didn't have to. Morale of the Story: Even though they didn't have a "Legal" obligation to fix it for free, they did the moral thing and paid for it anyways without me pressuring them into it. It shows there is still some morality left in used car sales! Thanks Velishek.

Ron Groschel - 2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible

Thank you for your help in finding a great car for my wife, Vicki. It was much appreciated. She was in shock when we presented the Sebring Convertible to her; she loves the car. It was a pleasure working with you all. Thanks Much! Ron Groschel

Bruce Veldman - 2006 Saturn Ion

I appreciate the service Michael gave. Very Friendly, and easy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone to purchase their next vehicle.

Brian Kondrad - 2005 Jeep Liberty

Dear Velishek, Everything went well and quite effective. Left feeling truly satisfied.

Samantha Vine - 2010 Kia Sportage

I am so incredibly happy that I came to buy a car from Velishek. They were extremely helpful and friendly. They worked diligently to get me approved for a loan that had a decent interest rate. I highly recommend Velishek - it is definitely a place I would come back to in the future.

Kevin Oliva - 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan & 2002 Buick Regal

John, Colleen, and Tim were absolutely fantastic. John found a van for my wife, Colleen took care of all the paperwork, all in less then a day. Then I ended up buying a car, too! FIVE STARS

Chad Krahn - 2009 Chevrolet Suburban 2500

WOW. What a great staff. We're very patient with me. Every car on the lot looks well maintained. I drove away in my 2500 Suburban feeling like a king. My first experience there. Will not be the last. Well worth the 1.5 hour drive.

Anthony Lyndon-Racho - 2003 Toyota Highlander

My wife and I were looking to buy a vehicle that was larger than the 05' Corolla she had been driving which was totaled in an accident. After looking online at a variety of vehicles and countless dealerships we came across a 2003 Toyota Highlander with incredibly low miles, 57xxx give or take and felt we owed it to ourselves to take a look even though we were from the east metro and never heard of this dealership, we are glad we did. After test driving it we bought it and have been very happy with it. We did have a light come on in the dash which turned out to be a sensor and the service department took care of it at no cost to us, excellent. After buying vehicles from the big dealerships in the past it was nice to have a positive experience with the people here where there was a complete abscence of pressure and drama. Oh, and by the way, the price we paid for our highlander was THOUSANDS less than others we came across exactly like it with high miles! There was nothing not to like about this deal and dealership. When I buy a vehicle for myself this coming year I will definitely check them out again.

Amy Krahn - 2009 Chevrolet Suburban 2500

Great people!!!

Diana Turcio - 2007 Chevrolet Suburban

I had a really good experience at Velishek. Mike was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this dealer to friends and family.

We completely trust the people at Velishek - they are so helpful and easy to work with. We definitely recommend Velishek to anyone looking for a new car!

Patrick Passe - 2006 GMC Yukon

As I'm somewhat of a long term customer, but not so recently, I decided to come to Velishek's to look 1st at a "New" vehicle. As I've bought, here and had much service done. I really appreciate being treated "Fairly" & "Honestly"!!! As usual I was able to find what I needed here! I just wanted to Thank Everyone for helping me find what I needed. So, as always, Thank you All!!
