If you feel like it’s time to move on from your current vehicle, it can be a daunting task figuring out where to start. On top of having to find the right car to fit your lifestyle, coming up with a way to pay for it can make your car-finding quest nearly impossible. Here at Dan Pfeiffer Automotive, we’ll guide you every step of the way. So head on over to either our website or our location to get started! You can find us at 2424 28th Street SE in Grand Rapids, MI.

Financing

To put it simply, when you finance a vehicle, you are basically purchasing the car but paying it off over time. Instead of putting all of your hard-earned money towards your vehicle of choice, the Finance Department will put together a payment plan that allows you to stay within your budget while still driving off the lot with your new-to-you ride. To get an estimate of your buying power and what your possible payment plans could be, feel free to check out our Payment Calculator that's located under our Finance tab.

Leasing

On the other end of the car-buying spectrum, you also have the option to lease with us as well. Rather than paying to own, leasing offers a more flexible route for those who are looking to save a little more money or if you like to test new models more often. With leasing, you will just be borrowing the vehicle from us for a specific amount of years and mileage. Because it’s only for a specific amount of time, you are only paying for the vehicle’s depreciation while it’s in your possession. Once your lease is up, you can either purchase your ride at its depreciated value, lease another model with us, or take a different route. The choice is up to you!

Online Tools

Now that you know you can make a vehicle yours, it’s time to turn to our easy-to-navigate website for more resources. If you look to our Financing tab, you can get Pre-Approved for a loan in a few simple steps as well as fill out a Finance Application, which will be sent our way immediately. If you want to check out what we have in our showroom, you can see our inventory. On the left side of the page, you can narrow your search through filters such as makes, models, years, body style, transmission, and even color. We’re confident that you’ll find the vehicle you’re looking for with us!

Testimonials

Experience was great

Drove 2 hours to look at a super low mileage F150. After test driving and inspecting I decided it was the one I was holding out for. Since it was a Saturday I figured I would have to come back during the week to pick it up, but Brad and John got me down the road with the truck in a matter of an hour or so. The overall experience was great and went very smoothly.

They take care of their customers

It was a 300 mile drive from Delaware OH to Byron Center MI, but I got a very good deal on a like-new 2019 Edge ST. They had it immaculately cleaned! Low miles, excellent shape, at a great price. Jim and John were very polite, easy to work with, and very informative. Jim went over all sorts of functions and features. It was very apparent to me they take care of their customers and they had no junkers on the lot; which shows me they take pride in what they sell, too.

Definitely recommend

As far as the quick lube/service center this place was great! I didn’t buy my vehicle here, but I live very close. I had a flat-ish tire and every tire place I called was so packed they couldn’t get me in. This service center told me if I came right away they would take a look to see if it was repairable or needed replacing. Drove right up and the gal at the desk was right on it! They fixed the tire on my brand new SUV and didn’t even charge me! Will definitely be back next time I need car maintenance!

Customer service was just excellent

My wife and I bought our first car as a couple here. We had to trade in my old sports car for something more practical, and they really worked with us. We got a used car for under the blue book value, and they gave us more than we expected for the trade in. When there was a discrepancy in the paperwork on our end, they even worked through it with us until it was figured out. The customer service was just excellent--no pushy sales, great options, very knowledgeable about each prospective car's history, and just a very personable team. They've really taken good care of us even after the sale, checking in on us regularly and even sending us coupons for services we usually take to more costly shops. Their follow-up has been amazing, and makes us feel like we're valued customers, and not just another sale to make the quota.

Highly recommend!

Big thank you in all the help for me to buy this '13 Lincoln MKT! From the Sales Consultant Brad Smith in jumping through every curve ball I threw with my above average dilligence to John Moorhead in Finance for same reason and the Manager James Moorhead in making it all come together. Great place where people do what they say and give you everything you need to feel comfortable buying a new ride. I had been searching for months and they actually had multiple options and allowed me to have any inspected by a third party. Very open with any and all info. Highly recommend! I purchased the vehicle, warranty, gap coverage and used them for finance. I did research against every aspect and they offered competitive and highly rated products.

Thank you!

I stopped into Dan Pfeiffer Automotive in Byron Center in a bit of a panic over a flapping side panel on a very windy day. I received such kind service as they popped the panel into place, taped the seam, and made me generally road-worthy again. I am very appreciative of their effort to help me out with something that had to be a bit out-of-the-ordinary on a Wednesday afternoon! Thank you!

Very happy!

We probably had the best car buying experience we've ever had here. James was awesome to work with. He's very knowledgeable of the line all with a very hands off approach. It was almost like he was more interested in ensuring we got the car we wanted rather than selling us a car. Had a small issue when we first got the MKZ that Pfeiffer promptly took care of all while leaving us with a service loaner.

Honest!

I never bought a car here nor have a I had any auto repairs completed at this site. What I can attest to is the honesty of the service rep (Eric) who sold me a $4.95 battery for a 1999 Mercury Marquis key fob and installed it at no cost. A week prior to this purchase, I spent 10 times as much at a national battery chain store for my Subaru key fob battery. He could have charged me much more and I would have never known. I feel that I had to applaud his honesty and acknowledge it.

Extremely pleased!

The folks at Dan Pfeiffer (John Moorhead was my sales guy there) were very understanding of my need to get the vehicle inspected by a third party. This allowed for great trust between the dealer and myself. I really appreciate the patience exerted by them.

Pfeiffer's service department is a very professional and welcoming place. Although we had many issues with our vehicle that took many days to complete, we were offered a loaner car, updates on how things were going, etc. After explaining to Zach from service how long we planned to keep the car and how we planned to use it in the next few years, he helped find parts that were a reasonable price and appropriate for our car, along with offering advice about tires. We appreciate the time and efforts to accommodate our needs very much.
