"A zero pressure sit down"
Eric and I sat down to discuss purchasing a car recently. They do not have the viehicle I am looking for on their lot so Eric showed me the options that I have to find the car that I really want! He listened to all my requests about the vehicle and found some really great cars! I did not purchase a vehicle but when I am ready I know that Eric will be the guy I go to!

From the 1st person I talked to on the phone (Ryan- oh my gosh- I was so impressed with his compassion and honesty, I truly don’t think I would have made the trip to Zumbrota from Rochester had I not liked him so much!) to the purchase of a car for my 16 year old daughter, everyone was genuinely helpful and friendly. I’ve been putting off looking for a car for my daughter because of a recent divorce and bankruptcy. I didn’t think I had a chance and if I did it would be a financial nightmare. Ryan was tied up when we got there and I was reluctant to talk with anyone else but thanks to the kind staff I was directed to Eric and he was a blessing. Eric Ruthig walked us through the whole approval process and he made it so easy and pain free. I even walked out the door feeling good about my purchase! I’ve always had buyers remorse after buying vehicles in the past and this was totally unexpected. I never felt pressured, I felt like Eric cared more about what my daughter and I needed and could afford than what he needed. He was totally up front and honest. I want to send my friends and family to Zumbrota Ford because everyone should get to experience such kindness and professionalism when making a car purchase. It was a really big purchase for us given our circumstances. Thank you Ryan, Eric, Jared and Chris in finance!!
"Bought a car while getting excellent service. "
I went with my mom to Zumbrota Ford and we were expecting to trade in my moms car (2013 Ford Edge) and mine (2001 Ford Taurus) and get 2 decent cars. Eric was super understandable about our previous financial problems, and didn’t judge us for a single minute. His main focus was to just make sure we got a car(s) that we needed. We ended up getting 1 car for me as it is needed to drive my little brother to school everyday. It was a long process, but by the end of the night it felt like we hadn’t been there very long because Eric constantly kept us informed and engaged. As a 16 year old, I don’t know much about cars yet Eric was so nice and always answered my questions no matter how insignificant they may have seemed. If you are thinking about getting a new car, I highly reccomend Zumbrota Ford and Eric. :) I am now driving a safe and reliable 2016 Toyota Carolla and couldn’t be happier!!
"Excellent experience in car buying!"
We have bought several cars from Zumbrota Ford, and Eric Ruthig is awesome to deal with! He is trustworthy and knowledgeable. My time is precious, and it is not wasted at Zumbrota Ford. Eric gets to know you and understands what is important to you. We have recommended them many times and will continue to do so.
"Best service around by far"
- Katie lynn
This is the second vehicle that we have purchased from Eric... Hands down the best around, he remembered us after a year since our last purchase at Zumbrota Ford. Always very professional but he is also very personable. He makes sure to listen to your needs and wants and finds the perfect vehicle for your needs. Each time we only had to test drive one vehicle prior to purchase. He know exactly what will work for your need in a few short questions and will stay within your budget while doing so... Thank you again Eric. See you in a year and a half when our edge lease is up. Will absolutely use Eric as a salemans again and will refer to friend and family

"Jeep Cherokee miracle "
I had purchased my first vehicle at Zumbrota Ford (2008 Chevrolet Uplander Minivan) in the fall of 2015 in order to get myself a more reliable vehicle and build credit on my non-existent credit history. It wasn’t my “dream van” and the finance rate was outrageous but it was a great option for who I was on paper at that time. I worked hard to make my monthly payments on tIme. My credit score was rising each quarter. I am moving out of state soon and I didn’t want to leave MN with my “not dream vehicle” and huge finance rate in tow. I worked with Eric who had kept in touch with me every so often by phone to check in on me and see if I was ready to get in a new vehicle. I came back to the dealership. I was still a little bit of a problem child in the sense that my credit score was “good” not “great”, I had a fair down payment but not huge, the trade in value of the Uplander had greatly depreciated, and I desperately wanted a lower interest rate. Eric the salesman and Chris my finance guy worked very hard to explore all my options. They kept in mind MY needs and didn’t stop until they found the best car at the best rate. Eric was extremely supportive and made me laugh the whole time I was there. The owner of the dealership brought me coffee and genuinely thanked me for my business. When Eric let me test drive the sexy 2016 Jeep Cherokee (which wasn’t on anyone’s radar) and Chris told me the monthly payment and finance rate, I was blown away! I still get in my vehicle every morning and smile ear to ear. After that experience, I wish I could buy a car every day!!
Side note: LADIES, Eric is single so if you are a fun, smart, sincere, pretty gal that likes to laugh and drink Bailey’s with a fun, smart, hard-working guy, go buy a car from him and get his phone number!!!!
"Eric the Rock Star"
Eric was so incredibly helpful during my SECOND time purchasing a vehicle at Zumbrota Ford. I knew what I wanted, and when he could t provide it with a vehicle from their lot, he took to auction sites and other dealerships and got me the exact car I wanted. This dealership is honestly the only place I will ever buy a car. I joked with Eric about excited I was to come back and trade the vehicle I had just purchased in for an upgrade in a few years haha. Truely the best car buying experience anyone could hope for.
