I recently purchased a car from Brett (Chopper) at Portage Cars Penrose. From the get-go he was welcoming, accommodating and friendly. He made the purchasing process for me so easy and seamless.

He was able to find a car within my price range and at the best deal possible.

Would highly recommend! Thank you!

I was shopping for a car with my elderly parents. Reuben meet us at the entrance and it was a breeze from there
I really appreciated how easy you made it for older people to try out multiple cars, How you patiently listened, suggested and did not push! .

You made the whole process very easy and we thank you for that.
