"So Impressed!"

So impressed with the service we received here. No pressure, answered all my questions. Came back the next day to test drive and was still impressed with the salesman, Dave. We went for a drive and the people all stayed late to make us happy with our deal. We got a heck of a buy and a wonderful car. Thank you so much, Bill and Reynea Gerdes

"SJ Denham"

My husband and I walked into SJ Denham to purchase a 2016 Chrysler and our salesman Mike Riley was prepared for us purchasing our new car. Excellent service, and thorough information from Mike Riley made our purchase quick and easy. Thank-You Mike Riley

This has to be the classiest place I have ever bought a new vehicle from. Dave and Mike were great. These guys did not try to squeeze more money out of me, they knew what i wanted and took what i had and got us the best APR and deal. We drove out vehicle home after work the same day i signed the application. You will not be disappointed with SJ Denham and their sales team. Very impressive! 5 stars!!!

"Traded in 06 Grand Caravan for 2014 Grand Caravan"

Let me start this off by saying, not only is SJ Denham Top notch, but these guys have integrity! When i came in, we picked out what vehicle I wanted to trade for ( I already knew what i wanted) We did the application and i went back to work. These guys worked through the afternoon getting us the best APR we could get for the moment, gave me a call to come on down and pick up my car. AMAZING! I felt like i was family. They treated me, my wife and my children like valued VIP customers (like family) I can't thank them enough for the experience. I will be honest, they have a customer for life. I want to stay loyal to such a class act dealership like SJ Denham. Guys Thank you so much for everything you did for us!
by Jason & Melissa Bryant from Redding, CA | March 1, 2017
I just bought my first vehicle and it was so fun and amazing at this dealership! I worked with Mark Cross and he was not pushy at all, he was very knowledgeable, friendly and he got me everything I wanted in my price range! I would definitely reccommend getting a vehicle at this dealership! Also Lisa Kelley...thank you for being amazing and making my signing fun!!

My wife and I went here to buy our new Ram 1500. Mark Cross was great! He spent over three hours with us test driving and trying to get the payments exactly where we needed them to be. The process was painless and Mark got us a better rate and lower payments by the end. Ryan Denham treated us like family. The whole group was great and not pushy at all like other dealerships we went to. We will be back when my wife needs a new car!

"I'm ecstatic!!"

I'm very ecstatic about my recent used car purchase at S.J. Denham!! I had been looking around at various lots in town as well as online, only to not find anything that really met my needs. Then I met with Dave Bartle at S.J. Denham and he somehow seemed to know exactly what I was looking for!! I LOVE my new car!! I look forward to doing business with S.J. Denham for many years to come! My advice to anybody who's shopping for a great vehicle at an excellent price is check out S.J. Denham first... you won't be disappointed!! I know I'm not! :-)
by Shari Payton from Redding, California | March 2, 2017
Excellent, Craig Emery was like dealing with an old friend. He was very helpful ln explaining how everything works. I would definitely consider buying another car from them in the future.
Rick, October 26, 2015

"Great sales folks and great service department"

I have been a customer of SJ Denham's in Redding since 1991. I have bought 3 cars here and have had excellent interactions all 3 tines. I am currently working with Mark Cross to buy my new Cherokee. I especially love their service department. These guys take the time to explain what's wrong with your car and why you need to fix it or if you can go a little longer until repairs are needed. They all watch out for their customers, from the owners, through the sales people, service department, and receptionist! Top class all the way!
by Barb B from Redding, CA | January 7, 2016

"Great buying experience."

The wife and I were looking for a new car and we had decided on a Chrysler 300. After looking around both at dealerships close to us and also online we found the one that had most of what we were looking for at SJ Denham. We worked with Bruce Valladon and he worked to get us a good deal on the car as well as financing. I felt it was a great experience working with everybody at the dealership. I would definitely return there for future purchases.
B. Spore, Escalon, CA January 04, 2016

"Thank you Dave!"

Dave Bartle did a wonderful job of helping us to get our new 2016 Jeep. We think he is not paid enough, but stuff happens. We would give him a 10 out of 10 Best!
by Doc and Kearen from Redding, CA | March 23, 2016

"Awesome dealership and customer service"

Bruce was great in not only understanding what I was looking for but my budget. Everything was set and ready when I got there. Everyone paid attention to detail and quickly I drove off with the car I wanted. I would definitely use this dealership again. Wonderful service and I got what I wanted.
by Robyn from Escalon, ca | January 6, 2016

"Best Purchase Experience Ever"

I was looking for a new Jeep, talked with Mark Cross. He explained all the differences in the models clearly, the one I wanted was obvious so we made a deal, all the numbers were right. I had a new Jeep in no time. Smoothest car purchase I ever made. No pressure and plenty of knowledge. I'll be back.
by Jeff from Redding, CA | January 12, 2016

"Great Service and Great Price at SJ Denham!"

From my first email inquiry, Mark Cross was friendly and prompt in answering my all questions and concerns. The vehicle was ready to go for a test drive the second I arrived on the lot and Dave Bartle gave me a pressure free experience, with a deal I could not pass up. Would recommend both Mark and Dave for your future pre-owned car purchases. Thanks SJ!
by Crystal from Redding, CA | January 14, 2016

"Happy New Jeep Owner"

I was shopping for a used car when I met Dave at SJ Denham's and he showed me some good options. Then I spotted a new Jeep Cherokee and I changed directions. The new Jeep suited all my needs and I decided the Cherokee would be a better vehicle for me. Dave was very knowledgeable about the Cherokee which helped me make my decision. The financing process was very efficient and went smoothly. I've been happy with the service and am enjoying driving my Jeep. SJ Denham was recommended to me by several friends, and I would recommend it to others as well.
by Pam from Redding CA | January 16, 2016

"Great Buying Experience!"

I discovered the 2015 Jeep Renegade on the SJ Denham website while searching for a small SUV. Craig Emery was very responsive via email and arranged for me to come down to the dealership and go for a test drive. Craig was very knowledgeable, laid-back, and attentive- a true no pressure salesman! The entire buying process was exceptional and took less than 2 hours from test drive to keys in hand. I would definitely recommend Craig and the SJ Denham team! I LOVE my new toy! Thanks again Craig!!!
by NorCalGal from Redding, CA | January 18, 2016

"A Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart Experience"

Randy and Ryan Denham are two of the classiest men in the auto business.We bought both cars in the past 2 months, and we had great experiences both times. Ryan suggested Mike Reilly as our salesperson and he was wonderful. He found out our needs, and found 2 cars that worked for us. The entire staff at S J Denham are classy and consumer friendly. We will only buy our future cars from this great group of people.
by R and M from Redding Ca | January 25, 2016

"Excellent service and overall experience."

Our car buying experience at SJ Denham in Redding, CA was exceptional! This was our 3rd car purchase from SJ Denham and we will continue to do all future purchases at this location. Mike Riley, salesperson, was extremely helpful, professional and friendly, from the time we arrived on the lot to the time we drove away in our new car. We also had the pleasure of working with Lisa Kelly, in finance, for all three our car purchases. It was nice to have a familiar friendly face, she is a true pleasure to work with. We also use the service department for oil changes and necessary service, they have always been honest and helpful. We would highly recommend SJ Denham, Redding, CA to all our family and friends!!
Michael T. from Anderson, CA | February 1, 2016

"Great Deal and Experience!!!"

I needed a new car quick and luckily landed a car very similar to the car I had replaced. They took good care of me making sure everything checked out with the car and the process was very quick and painless. Mark was very cool and got things squared away so I could get back my other priorities.
by darren from Redding, CA | February 5, 2016

"Dave at SJ Denham"

Bought a car this week from Dave Bartle @ SJ Denham.  Dave was a pleasure to meet during this week.  He went out of his way for the test drive for my daughter who recent gave birth to twins by driving the vehicle to her for test drive.

This was one of the easiest, comfortable buying experiences If ever had from a dealership:  No prying questions or conniving to get me hooked.  They let the car sell itself and there were several of the same model from which to choose.
By Marc in Redding , CA. from Redding, CA | January 13, 2017

"A Great buying experience!"

We had not bought a new vehicle in years and I was dreading the ole "wheel & deal" games, but that didn't happen at S.J. Denham. We had a very pleasant experience there and we did buy a brand new Jeep Cherokee Limited. I want to praise & thank Mark Cross, Mike Riley, and Lisa Kellley. I would rate all of you a 10 if I could. You three are super! I feel like we have become friends rather than just a business transaction. Also, a special shout out to Lisa for remembering I had wanted a brochure and she found one for me. Thank you! Our thanks to all of you!!

"Restored our Faith in True Customer Service"

We are not accustomed to writing reviews however, the customer service that SJ Denham provided us warranted a heartfelt and appreciative review. I want to express that we did not purchase wisely for our first vehicle, as we purchased it out of town from another dealer. We called the out of town dealer upon issues with our vehicle but could not get a response. We finally made the right choice and went to SJ Denham, not only did the local SJ Denham respond to our needs, the entire staff at SJ Denham treated us like we were their priority customers. SJ Denham, was not our original dealer but they took care of us like they were. To say we received excellent customer service would be an understatement. The entire SJ Denham staff; mechanics, service department, sales and owner, treated us with so much respect and honesty, while having true concern for our situation, that they restored our faith in true customer service. SJ Denham treated us like family, they cared about us and worked hard to ensure that we were 100% satisfied. SJ Denham did not financially benefit from our transaction because they were not our original dealer, we have never experienced this type of service before. To not make money off of us but instead to take care of us because they genuinely cared is unheard of. We cannot speak highly enough about SJ Denham and for what they have done for us. They have gone above and beyond true customer service and we are now and will continue to be devoted customers to SJ Denham. We will not go anywhere else to make another vehicle purchase! If you want honest, caring and excellent customer service, stay local, go to SJ Denham, they will take great care of you and treat you like family!!
by Brian G. from Redding, CA | March 8, 2016

"I love my charger!!!"

Me and my fiance had the best experience at SJ Denim when we bought our 2014 Dodge charger. Everyone was so nice especially our salesman David battle and the finance manager Lisa they both worked hard and together to make sure we got our car. Thank u so much we absolutely love our car!!!!! :) we will definitely tell everyone to come to SJ Denim to buy there vehicles.
by Michelle and stacy from Redding ca | April 8, 2016

"Excellent Service"

The customer service while purchasing a new vehicle from SJ Denham was fabulous. Mark Cross and Mike Riley were both friendly and helpful during selection and Lisa was awesome during financing. I highly recommend the team and SJ Denham.
by krs1215 from Redding | April 7, 2016
We very recently purchased a new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited at SJ Denham. Our first inquiry put us in contact with Mike Riley. He arranged a test drive, at our convenience, and assured us that he could locate a Jeep to our exact choosing. And, he did!  The entire process was completed very smoothly. If you're considering a Jeep or any other vehicle SJ  Denham offers, call Mike Riley. He's been in the business a long time which is proof of his ability to have satisfied customers.
Sue H. Redding, CA 04/30/2016

To make a long story short, I was pleasantly surprised by my experience with SJ Denham. 
I had been searching for several months for a certain car a Mercedes Benz SLK. Using the usual tools online Auto Trader, CarGurus and carsforsaleonline. I had requested information from several listings and received less than courteous replies. One went so far as to excuse me of lying about the car I wanted to use as a trade-in. I finally came upon the listing at SJ Denham for a 2006 280 SLK. I sent a request and received a follow up email the next day from Mike Riley. He gave me a price and asked when I wanted to set up a test drive. Unfortunately right after this I had to go out of town on family business and was not able to set anything up. (So much for long story short)  I received a follow up email while out of town.A little over a week later I responded and informed Mike of my situation.I told Mike when I would be returning and hope to set up a meeting then. He let me know that he would keep me updated and if the car sold he would email me to save me a trip. (SJ Denham is a 3 hour drive from me) When I returned I flew into Sacramento and called Mike who advised the car was still available so I drove directly to SJ Denham from the airport. When I got there I was met in the car lot by Ryan Denham who stopped what he was doing to assist me. I told him why I was there and he knew exactly who I was looking for and went of to get Mike Riley. To speed things up here. Test drove the car, fell in love with and sat down to negotiate. Did I get the deal I wanted, No. But then most dealership don't give cars away for free. But I most certainly got a more than fair deal. When I went to pay for it I gave them my debit card knowing that there was enough to cover the cost. Unfortunately they cant accept a debit for over 1500.00 ( a check no problem) but I didn't have my check book and now figured I would have to drive all the way home and then back again. That's when Bruce Valladon the Sales Manager stepped in and suggested that I put 1500.00 on the card and get a cashier check from my bank the next day (This was President's day and the bank was closed) That way I could take the car with me. So that's what I did. Spent the night in Redding drove back to Denham's in the morning with the check and drove home. The car is fantastic. My dealings with the staff at Denham's excited my expectations of dealing with a dealership. I spent over 40 years in the automotive Insurance industry and dealt with 100's of dealers. S.J. Denham is one I would  most definitely recommend.

"Terrific buying experience"

I had been thinking of buying a "new to me car" for a long time. I stopped by a business near S J Denham to shop and decided to browse the lot. Mark Cross came out to help me and it was a very pleasant experience. I told him I was just starting to look. He said no problem and showed me several cars in the price range I specified. He sent me home with a print out of a car and followed up with a call to confirm the price. I let a week go by and then I just dropped in again and Mark remembered me. He made the choice so easy and the process so simple I drove home in my 2015 Toyota Corolla. It is all I had hoped to buy and at a price that was more than reasonable. I am happy to tell all my friends and family to go see Mark Cross at S J Denham for their next vehicle.

Our sales guy dave was amazing he helpped me get the lowest rate possible at the best price thanks Highly recommended
by GDdiehl from Redding Ca | June 15, 2016

"Such a great experience!!"

I went here looking for a new Jeep and I got the best experience looking for a new car I have ever had. The associate that helped us Dave was so nice. We have went in a few times and talked to him and every single time he has been so nice to help with any questions and get a good rate. He helped us figure out all the new technology and get the best deal we could with what we had to work with. He also was very friendly with my 1 year old daughter. I would so recommend coming to their lot and talking to Dave especially. Hands down best experience.

"Time Here Was very Comfortable"

I have been working with Dave Bartle for a while now on the purchase of my new Jeep Cherokee.  The buying process was great.  It took less than two hours total time from start to finish once I decided on the Jeep I wanted.  Thanks Dave!
By Dan from Anderson Ca | January 16, 2017

"Incredible dealership and salesman!"

David Bartle is an awesome salesman! He made us feel comfortable and worked with us to get a terrific deal and an awesome rig. Never felt pressured. Finance did an awesome job explaining options and making sure we understood every part of our purchase. Enjoying our 4 door Rubicon! Fantastic rig. I would recommend David Bartle and this dealership to everyone and I will!
By Dennis from Palo Cedro | October 11, 2016

"Whatever you want, they will find it!"

As a business owner our fleet needs are ever changing. The Denham team has always been willing to find whatever we need - new and used! I trust them for all my vehicle purchasing because they are honest, local people. They contribute to our local community in so many ways, such as scholarships, Rotary, and supporting many local school fundraisers. They make the purchasing process fun and easy. Give them a call or just drop by - you will be happy you did.

"Quick Service & Professionalism"

I just wanted to express our appreciation to you for the quick and friendly service we received.  Replacing the brakes during our vacation certainly wasn't in our plans, however our experience was pleasant.  Your staff was extremely courteous and helpful.  We even made a connection with your shuttle driver, Bob.  Thanks again for your professionalism and quick service.
Norman & Laura, Edmonds, WA August 19, 2011

"Thank You For the Good Job on My Car"

Just a note to say "Thank You" for the good job on my car.  I sure appreciate they wash and polish job.  I did not expect that.  Since I managed to pay for the work, I am hoping the insurance will not go up.

Margaret, Redding, CA August 20, 2011

"Suggested to Friends"

We have no complaints regarding SJ Denham.  We're very happy with our purchase and your service has been great!  We have suggested to several friends to come to your business to purchase cars and trucks!
William, Redding, CA October 7, 2011

"Handy Having Our Car Serviced"

As usual we were very happy with the service and mentioned that they gave her some touch up paint for future nicks.  Sure is handy to get our cars there and have them serviced when I can peck out an email or two and get parts and service ordered.

Our schedules are insane during the week and even during the weekend sometimes!!

Steve, Redding, CA October 21, 2011

"Very Courteous and Helpful"

Just a quick "Thank You" to you and your staff.  Your folks at the body shop did a great job repainting the pickup door and buffing out a couple of scratched areas.  The front office staff were very courteous and helpful as well, and had a loaner ready for me!
Rick, Redding, CA October 20, 2011

"Joy to Work With!"

I was so pleased with the accomodations you and the staff made for me when I was having such a hectic time(with vehicle).  Thanks for being a joy to work with!
Mildred, Redding, CA March 1, 2012

"We Cannot Thank You and Your Staff Enough!"

We so appreciate the fine service at Denhams.  As always, Cody's professionalism gave us confidence and peace of mind Friday afternoon.  We cannot thank you and your staff enough!  Our vacation plans did not need to be altered.  We can relax as we begin our road trip!

"Features of New 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee"

The U Connect system is great! I can stream music from Pandora and my iPhone. I also downloaded my entire music library onto the hard drive. It drives great too!
Tim & Nikki, Redding, CA August 10, 2011

"We Were Extremely Impressed!"

Yesterday we purchased a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited at your dealership.  We were extremely impressed by your staff members who helped us with our purchase.

We had not purchased a new car for many years and thought that it was going to be a stressful event.  We were pleasantly surprised when your sales associate, Eric, put that idea to rest by the manner in which he showed us the car, took us on two test drivers and spent a generous amount of time going through the car and explaining the various features to us. 

We were also impressed by your finance manager, Lisa, who walked us through the financing paperwork and carefully explained the various options available to us.

We would not hesitate to recommend your dealership to friends.
