Dear Stoudt Team,
Your care and attention to every detail to ensure my buying experience was perfect is deeply appreciated. Knowing that you also stand by your products and services provides me a great level of comfort in buying a high performance Corvette that has not been abused by a previous owner.
You obviously know your products very well, and I have benefitted greatly from my buying experience at Stoudt Auto Sales.
Please know that I highly recommend anyone to buy a vehicle from you and use your service department. The quality of your automobiles and service is outstanding!
Please provide my personal thank you to Jan, Jay, Steve and anyone else that helped prepare my car.
I look forward to keeping a watch on your website for my next Corvette.

I have purchased many automobiles from your dealership in the last thirty some odd years. The total number of vehicles including today’s purchase of a 1964 Corvette brings the total to 16 units. I can honestly say that there was never a lemon in the entire group. Does this mean I am an easily satisfied customer or is Stoudt Auto Sales a well managed firm? I suppose the latter: consequently, I wish to take this opportunity to express my gratitude.
I am very appreciative of the manner by which Stoudt Auto Sales, the Stoudt families and their staff handled all of my inquires pertaining to various purchases. I especially applaud Mr. Stoudt for his professionalism concerning that the car must be “right” before it leaves the dealership. However, I realize how occasionally Jay Allen Stoudt gets a little upset with his father’s perfection when the margins become a little thin. I still believe that this approach is the correct one, as it reduces the number of warranty claims.
Your firm has an excellent track record with me and I am sure it will continue in the future years. I look forward to my next purchase.

I purchased my Corvette 1 month ago knowing it wasn’t new but 32 years old. I was given a 50/50 warranty, so I checked what I could in the first 3 weeks. When I parked, I found a large spot on my garage floor so I brought it in to be fixed. When I picked up my car today, and was handed the bill, I was really surprised. Not only did you fix what I found but you also fixed 2 other items. The real shock was the price was not charge. I thought I would be paying half the bill. I want to thank you and all your people for your service, and your good work.
When I found that I now have some extra cash, I went to your parts department and looked around surprised to see as many items and a catalog. So I spent a hundred or so on dress-up items.
Your staff was very helpful and friendly. I always hear about you pay too much at Stoudt’s, but you get what you pay for.
Again, thanks and I will be back.

Mr. Stoudt, I would like to take this opportunity to express my feeling regarding the experience I have had with Stoudt Auto Sales, Inc. This is the first time I have ever had an interaction with your company. Initially, I was hesitant to purchase a car so far away from Arizona.
When I saw this particular Corvette that you had advertised on the internet, I contacted your company and was immediately impressed with the courteous phone conversation I had with Mr. Jan Stoudt. Jan provided me with a number of references to contact and these buyers all were extremely positive about the experience they had buying a car from you.
When I came to Reading to look at the car, Jan Stoudt personally spent several hours with me thoroughly inspecting this vehicle and taking me for a test drive. Jan was very professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about the Corvette.
I decided to purchase the car right away. This 1993 anniversary model was in absolutely “mint” condition. Jan then helped me with all the financial matters and arranged for a competent transport company to bring the car home.
When I took delivery of the car, I noticed a small oil leak, which I am sure went undetected by your mechanics. I have an epoxy-coated garage floor, which shows everything. I contacted Jan and he told me to take the car immediately to a dealer. The repairs were completed and you folks took care of all the expenses.
In this day and age of corporate loss of ethics and public loss of trust, Stoudt Auto Sales stands as a lesson for doing the right thing!
You can be assured that you have a customer for life. Every Corvette that I will ever own will be purchased from Stoudt Auto Sales, Inc.
Please feel free to have any potential customers contact me as a reference.
I am impressed!!

First of all, I would like to thank you for a wonderful and well taken care of 2001 Mustang Cobra.
After all my years of buying new and used, collector cars and wrecks, this was the most pleasurable experience that I have ever had purchasing a vehicle. There was no pressure of any kind and I could not believe how well Jan Stoudt worked with me. He really understood my concerns. When it comes to making deals my wife calls me a salesperson’s nightmare, but Jan Stoudt managed to keep a positive attitude and as mild throughout the entire sale.
The great cars, the great people and the great attitude, that is what your dealership represents. Jan Stoudt worked very hard to make this deal happen and my family and I could not be happier. I felt Jan went above and beyond what a car salesperson is expected to do. He made us feel welcome and confident. He was not only working for the company to make a profit (this is not a hobby) but also made it feel like he was working for us. When it was time for the money to hit the table and Steve Stoudt took over, it was nice of him to take the time to explain all the things about the deal. Steve had a nice personality and he also made the sale feel like a good one. I might be a little bias because he is an E*A*G*L*E*S fan.
When you buy a car like this, it’s not something that you are going to use to go to the mall or to go to work in. When you find something that you end up polishing as much as you drive (and enjoy then both) it feel so good to drive off your lot with a quality legend of a car that will always turn heads. When I pass other cars and they say “what was that?”, they will see the Stoudt Auto Sales sticker on the back as long as I own the car.
I will be back again and thanks for a great car and a fun experience.

I recently bought a silver Stingray from your dealership. It is actually the 2nd Vette I bought from you.
I am writing this to say thank you for the courtesy and respect I have received.
Steven Stoudt was very informative and very courteous. Jan and Jay Allen Stoudt answered any questions I gave them and was very polite.
Your service manager took time to talk to me and was very helpful and friendly. And your parts man, I believe his name is Ron, he was extremely courteous and helpful on the phone and in person.
Please let these people know this. Thank you.

Several weeks ago I picked up my 1979 Corvette from your shop. I had brought the car back to your place for some repairs as I had brought it there and your parts inventory available for my car is extensive.
I left a rather long list of things I wished to have done: finishing with a request for a 50,000 mile check for anything else I missed.
I picked up the car two weeks after I left it and drove it home where I looked over all that had been done. I was so very pleased.
I am sure that people take quality work for granted at your dealership. But I wanted to express my complete satisfaction with the quality of the work and with your service manager, John. John was in touch as needed to advise me of the status of the work, issues that has arisen as a result of his examination of the car and the date of delivery back to me.
I would like to thank you and through you, John, for a first class job of repair. Well worth the money. And I have been happily logging pleasurable miles since I got it back with no problems.
Thank you again. See you in the spring of next year.

Stoudt Auto Sales, you have made my dream of my first Corvette come true in every detail. I am so glad we bought our Corvette from Stoudt Auto Sales. I feel like we made the right selection Corvette. All we do is put gas in it, wax it, and enjoy it. This is our perfect 1st Corvette. We will be back to buy our 2nd Corvette from Stoudt Auto Sales. Thank you so much.

I am very happy with the black 1993 Corvette coupe I bought from you a month ago. I've put 500 miles on it since then. It is an outstanding car with no disappointments. It was safety inspected at Damascus Chevrolet and they were amazed at its excellent condition. Tony's Corvette Shop looked at it and gave it high marks.
Congrats on having such a top quality car in your inventory. I can see why you’ve built such trust and integrity when you offer a car like this for sale.
If I am ever in the market again, I will definitely shop Stoudt's first.

Jay Stoudt, more than not, customers forget to tell the owners of businesses how much they appreciate the jobs they do and the employees that do them. Sadly to say, I am one of those.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for all the flawless work that has been accomplished on my Fleet by both John and Mike. These two guys are such nice people and have the attitude that nothing is too much trouble. What more could one possibly ask for. As recently as yesterday, they finished overhauling the steering of the 1962 Impala. The car steers and responds like brand new. Absolutely phenomenal!
This letter would not be complete unless I mention, Jay Allen Stoudt, Jan Stoudt and Steve Stoudt. The three of them have always treated me with the utmost courtesy and respect. Their behavior should be a model for some of the high end dealers that are around and say they are customer friendly
I look forward to being a Stoudt customer for years to come.

Steve Stoudt and Jay Allen Stoudt, this is the perfect time to say thank you for our recent purchase of our Cadillac Escalade. Your extra effort to insure that our purchase was correct in every way and done with such expertise are greatly appreciated.
It was a pleasure to make our purchase at Stoudt Auto Sales!
George B. from Washingtonville, NY writes:
Jan Stoudt, I just wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful experience buying from you. Completely painless. I appreciate all the attention. I promise to talk you up to all I know.
I also wanted to thank you for the t-shirts. A big hit at home. But as you said the kids will be wearing theirs at home. It made them feel part of the great experience I had though.
Thank you so much.

Steve Stoudt, just wanted to thank you for making my dream come true. We've had two days of great fun driving around. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I look forward to seeing you again when I come up for service.
