I traded in two cars for two new cars at the beginning of 2011. My experience was the best auto buying situation I have ever encountered in my 36 years of buying vehicles. Eric Freeman and his staff were professional, efficient, honest, and they had excellent upscale inventory. I would highly recommend Freeman Motor Company. They make sure you are satisfied and made things right for me, even after the sale. It's smart business to have this approach, creating long term customers like myself. I would highly recommend them.

We've recently bought a 2009 Mercedes from Freeman Motors and would like to share our experience.We are seniors so between us have lots of car buying experience. Usually it has been less than great fun what with the games dealers play, etc...
I had heard from a close friend about a dealer on Macadam Ave. that had a somewhat different business model and who specialized in German autos so decided to check him out.
The first visit was with my friend last Spring and I was surprised that most of the inventory, about 60 cars, was inside under cover and very well lighted.
Second surprise was that no one followed us around asking ""are you ready to buy?"" Instead, we were simply greeted and told if we had any questions, to please ask.
I was impressed with the cleanliness and overall quality, not to mention what seemed like good pricing. A very good selection of Mercedes, BMW, Audi, VW and a few others.
Not having an immediate need for a car at that time , we left.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when it became time to replace my wife's Honda CR-V, so we started looking for a new one, having had mostly Hondas for the past 20 years. I contacted a few dealers, got a lot of runaround, especially from Wilsonville Honda, so as I was wandering around town one day decided to swing by Freeman's to see if they had anything interesting. Sure enough, I found a 2009 Mercedes C300 at a very affordable price that looked new.
Never imagining Susan would every consider anything besides Honda I asked her to go to Freeman and check this nice little sedan out. She did and right after, called me and said she was ""head over heels"" with the car. I went down the next day, contacted Bill Michener and after a brief negotiation purchased the car. Bill never put any pressure on, just gave me the keys and let me take it for a test drive.
I also had called Dennis at Freeman's service facility to find out about their capabilities just to make sure our car would have a ""home"". He represented Freeman very well and I will use this facility as needed. They have 6 technicians and go thru each car before it's put on the display floor.
If our experience so far is any indication, we are looking forward to a great relationship with Eric Freeman and his crew.

This dealership sold us a car that should have been donated to someone for free. It was breaking down within months of our purchase and they did nothing but rack up Service Department revenue as a result. The owner, Eric, is great at making his crappy broke down car inventory feel like your bad luck. Do yourself a favor: if you are looking for a luxury German car, don't go to Freeman. We just traded in our car from their dealership for another from a huge Portland dealership and are already excited for the day when we can look back and laugh at our horrific experience at Freeman Motor Company.

I had a terrible experience with Freeman and would never recommend this dealership to anyone. The owner, Eric, is incredibly unprofessional and disrespectful.
Pros: Good car selection and no pressure browsing
Cons: Unprofessional and disorganized staff
Bottom line: I would never recommended this dealership to anyone. There are plenty of other places in Portland and I wish I had gone elsewhere.

We bought our Mercedes S430 1 year ago. We love it & have had no problems. It only had 52K miles & still drives like new. We nearly bought the same model, year & color with 153K miles from another dealer for the same price! Marshall was great to work with & we will definitely be back. I recommend Freeman to all my friends & relatives.

Bought my last 4 cars here, all late model Mercedes; S500, AMG CLK, E430, 450SL. I have never had an issue with taking the cars to a shop for checks. I now have over 25K on the S500 with only oil and tires. Test drove a half dozen other BMW, MB and Audi while deciding and Freeman never pushed for closure. Every buying experience was a pleasure from walking in the door to driving off the lot. Freeman Motors is THE place to go to check out used but good quality European vehicles.

What a pleasure to buy a car from them! The staff is incredibly courteous and professional! Once we selected our Mercedes SLK from their indoor showroom, the paperwork was ready immediately. No waiting, no hassles, no pressure! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great car and a buying experience that is unsurpassed!

I would highly recommend Freeman Motor Company. I am from out of state and took the train to pick up my car - Eric Freeman picked me up from the train station on a day when the dealership was closed to pick up my car! Great customer service as well as a nice car at a fair price. I will definitely recommend Freeman Motor Company and will come back as a repeat customer.

My husband and I have purchased our last three cars from Freeman Motors. They have the best values in Portland: great cars and low prices. The sales people are helpful, patient and relaxed because the cars sell themselves. We've always had a truly no pressure, fun experience. Dustin is awesome!

I purchased a 2003 Mini Cooper S from Freeman Motor Co., and it was the best buying experience ever. They gave me and my two friends Starbucks cards, and when we returned, all the paperwork was ready to go. We had a flat tire on the way home, and Eric Freeman paid for the repairs. I'd recommend them to everyone! It was a great experience, and the indoor showroom just made it even better!

I purchased a Porsche 911 Cabriolet from Freeman about a month ago. I have to say, it was one of the best experiences buying a car I've ever had. I hate shopping for cars and the pressure from sales people. Freeman didn't have any of that. A big plus was the huge indoor showroom. I would buy from them again in a heartbeat.

It's hard to find a car dealer that says what he means and means what he says. Eric Freeman and his staff and Freeman Motor are the real thing - a throwback to the days when you could go on a guy's handshake and his word. I had a complicated transaction which included shipping a car, sight unseen, to the east coast. Eric gave me his word on a few things and when I needed to ask him to step in and make something right, he did so without hesitation. The car was, and is, fantastic. I'd buy another from these guys in a heartbeat.

The guys at Freeman motors were so helpful and they were able to answer all my questions, and I had a lot! I've had so many unsatisfying experiences with other car dealerships and Freeman motors were able to change that with their prompt courtesy, being friendly, and being so informative. They are the best!

I bought a gently used car with low miles from Freeman recently. I had shopped around a lot both at other dealerships (where a lot of my time was wasted) and online, and knew exactly what I needed to pay for this car. My experience couldn't have been easier and more low-key. I found it online listed at Freeman and went over to test drive it. I really only made a half-hearted attempt to bargain the price down, as the first price given was an awesome deal and I knew it. I dealt with one person only--Marshall--and was so happy to see that we didn't have to play the usual dealer games of back and forth, talking to three managers, wearing the customer down, etc. My husband and I would go back in a heartbeat to shop again, but we have such a great car, it'll be awhile!

I needed a car fast but I didn't want the hassle that goes with the typical process. I stopped into Freeman on recommendation from a friend and felt immediately at ease. There was a nice selection but not so many I felt overwhlemed. The prices were so good it was actually FUN to shop! The salesman was chill and let me take my time. I didn't know much about Saabs but he provided good information -- to my surprise I was more pleased in the following days--the car drives like a DREAM!! Now I love SAABS!! :)

""When I first decided to purchase a Mercedes SL500, I made a careful study of all cars in the Oregon/Washington areas reviewing Craig's List, local newspapers and dealer websites. By far Freeman Motor Company had the best value for my money. All comparable SL500s for sale in the area were $3000 more than the price I paid and had at least 30,000 more miles on the odometer. The car I purhcased from Freeman Motors is a low mileage, well cared for Mercedes and I don't think I could have found a nicer one, particularly for the price I paid."" - Jesse B.

Purchased a Jaguar on June 10, 2008 via EBay from Freeman Motors. Clean deal and honest salesman, Marshall, did a walk around on the phone regarding condition of car prior to purchase. Gave an accurate description of all issues. Bought our first car this way and very pleased with the deal, salesman and the car. We love our Jaguar.
