I had the best car purchasing experience at CARite, thanks to Heath and the entire team. Heath was professional, efficient and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. Even when I was frustrated, they were able to work with my offer and made it happen!! I am very impressed with them and I would only go to CARite to get a car in this location, Kalamazoo. They even fixed a few things like the tire pressure light and replaced the windshield wiper blade without charging me extra. I thought that was sincere and fair. If you need a car and don’t want pushy sales associates to sell you a car, look for Heath! He was excellent!! I highly recommend Heath and the team in Kalamazoo especially if you are a buying your first car.

Randall Nousen was awesome he found the color I wanted and all the extras!!!

The gentleman at car right but wonderful sales man they took very good care of me were very accommodating both Randy and Heath were excellent to work with in the buying process great guys recommend anybody buying a car from carite

The CARite KZOO Team was fantastic to work with. No pressure, super helpful and willing to go the extra mile to help me get into my new car. Super friendly staff and great selection of cars. One of the EASIEST car buying experience I have ever had. Andrew and Heath knocked it out of the park - thanks guys!!!

Randy helped me elevate my life with this car! That, and their rates were so much lower than what you could get at the local bank!

Great customer service. Worked with Heath, great guy and very personable! I would definitely recommend this place.

The whole team worked together to make my Ford Escape happen in one day! Great stuff happening at this location.

Great service!

Very professional and easy to work with! Heath makes you feel at home!

I had a great experience there my salesman Randy was very good and followed through the dealer manager Thomas was went way above and beyond and took care of things they even stayed over on a Saturday to get me into my vehicle and get me out the door and take care of all my needs as if I have a hectic work schedule during the week they made it happen they were great and I will be back for my next vehicle.......scott c.

The staff was very friendly and got things done in a timely fashion!

I walked into CARite thinking it was going to be like any other car dealership, pushy salesman just trying to make a profit and get you into any car they could. BOY WAS I WRONG. This dealership is the first one that I have been to that they actually care about what works for you. Andrew Jones helped me and he was great to work with. He made the car shopping experience great! If u are thinking about buying a car go see him, I highly recommend him!

Very accommodating and courteous way beyond my expectation! Service manager and staff on duty Sept 16 at 2pm took care of my tire and got us back on the road, with peace of mind!!! Thank you Carite!!

Our experience with Carite and our salesman Heath Shaffer was great. Couldn't have ask for a more friendly salesman and great service. I will highly recomend Carite and Heath Shaffer to anyone I know who is looking for a newer vehicle. Love my new ride.....

I had low tire pressure, drove in and they took care of me right away! Very friendly and helpful staff. Thank you :)
