We purchased a Dodge Ram from Marketplace Auto and it was my wife's feeling about the experience that compelled me to write a review. We were searching all over the area for a truck to haul our "toys". My wife primarily will be pulling our horse around and she wanted a truck with cloth interior and it had to be blue. There are so many places in the Puyallup area to get a truck that I was going insane the first couple of days walking many used lots and dealing with, frankly, too eager salesmen that would not even make eye contact with my wife. Dude the truck is for HER! Which is why when I went Marketplace Auto after seeing a truck on their website it was great to meet Mike Giovengo. This guy really took his time to hear what our needs were and find a better truck to not only meet the needs but changed my wife's mind so we got a sweet truck with LEATHER and extra options I was not even looking for. The greatest part is we PAID LESS than we budgeted, how the heck does that happen? Awesome. We were treated well and my wife is happy you know you gotta make HER HAPPY. Bottom line is respect for her was just hard to find at other car lots and she wanted to say a thank you to Mike and the guys there as did I. I give these guys 5 stars for making the whole experience easy, friendly, cheaper and BETTER! Definitely reccomend Marketplace Auto especially amongst the lots around them! Thanks guys!

Give these guys a look before buying elsewhere!
By Daniel Klotz from Bonney Lake, WA | April 27, 2018

As the title says, give these guys a look before buying elsewhere. They have a smaller lot, but a HUGE inventory. It seems they get their cars in the best shape possible before putting them out for sale.
My experience there was fantastic. The best part is that the employees don't act like sharks, and don't treat their customers like dollar signs. A truly no pressure experience, and genuinely great people.
My salesperson Morty was also fantastic. I highly recommend asking for him. He was very accommodating, had answers to all of my questions, and made the buying process as seamless and easy as possible.
They got me into the car I wanted with financing from a major bank, and a good interest rate.
Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended. Stop in, and see what they can do for you.
Thanks guys!

Carolina Ferraudi - 2002 Toyota 4runner

We were at our wits end looking for a car. In fact, we drove all the way from Lake Stevens to Puyallup to see a car that they had on their lot. Rocky and the guys were extremely helpful. It was obvious that meeting our needs was important and they even stayed far past closing time (since we arrived late). I would recommend Marketplace Auto to anyone. We had been searching high and low for a car. Out of all the dealerships that we dealt with, Marketplace Auto offered the most personable service and the most affordable pricing options. 5 stars for all the guys at Market Place auto. Thank you.

I recently purchased a vehicle from this dealership that I found on CarFax, and it was an ideal experience. I arrived and they had the vehicle waiting for me by the door. Mike and Morty were communicative without ever being pushy, and they got me exactly what I needed. The whole experience was zero pressure and took less than an hour. I'd been dreading having to shop for a car, but they made it absolutely easy.

Teresa Herbert - 2008 Jeep Wrangler

    Bought a Jeep Wrangled. The staff was amazing and extremely helpful. Paperwork was done fast. I would definitely buy another vehicle from them again!! Thank you for everything.

Morty is awesome! Easy to deal with, best I’ve dealt with. Quick and to the point, no run around.

Kacy Wallace - 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe


We live in Central Oregon and found the absolute perfect Tahoe at Market Place Auto. We found the car online, called and spoke with Mike, and easily decided this was the car lot and the guy we wanted to do business with. Mike was honest and beyond helpful. All the guys there did a great job being professional but also super friendly. I can easily say our entire experience was terrific. Thanks Mike and Market Place auto!

I just picked up my 9th vehicle from them. The first was about 15+/- yrs ago. From the first rig to this one, they have been very fair, always a good experience. The last truck i purchased a little over a year ago went downhill fast. I went in to see what could be done for a different rig that would better suit my current needs and pocketbook.I went in expecting to leave and come back at a later date when they found a suitable vehicle, but Mike, Jeff and Rocket did an Outstanding job once again to get me where i needed to be that same day. And it wasn't an easy deal for any of us either. But they stepped up and made sure i was very well taken care of.
Thank you all VERY much and will see you again when i need my next rig.

Felicia Fiedler - 2010 Honda Odyssey


Amazing service. I have never felt more at home at a dealership. They weren't pushy at all. Kim was phenomenal!!! She entertained our children while waiting, and even fed them. We got home with our new Odyssey and 2 days later the battery was DEAD. We called them to see if they could help. They weren't obligated to by any means, but they bought a new battery, drove to our house, and installed it for us. They are great there.

Staff was amazing and helped me to get into a truck quickly so that I wouldn't have to pay for a rental car. Great vehicle and flexible staff

Lewis Mann - 2014 Ram 1500 laramie sport

We are a home builder in 6 locations here in the Pacific NW. We purchase two trucks a year or so for our Project Managers. We recently purchased a Dodge 1500 2014 Sport and I can't say enough about the dealership. Mike my salesperson was excellent to work with. The office is top notch, clean and organized. The truck was in excellent shape, nicely detailed for pickup. We have bought vehicles from many different locations, but we will make this our regular place to get what we want from here on out. I would give them 6 stars if I could. I was in and out within a 20-minute time frame, and for me, that’s what I value the most. Thanks Market Place Auto!!

K Skbna - 2012 Dodge 3500

Wow, what an exceptional experience! I called and told Rocky I was interested in a vehicle, he had it ready for me when I arrived. Every employee I've met has been kind and friendly, even to my very busy children. These guys do not try to pressure you into anything, they listen and help in every way to get you a great deal. I definitely and highly recommend! Thank you so much!

Mark Pafus - 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer

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!!
