About Our Dealership

Dealer on Cars.com since January 2004

It was over 80 years ago when, Karl Knauz, the father of the current chairman, opened a gas station in Lake Forest. Since then, the Knauz family has weathered the good times and the bad, and done so by taking care of customers using 'The Golden Rule".

...



In addition to our car dealerships, we also have a state of the art; Body Shop & Detail Center plus a Pre-Owned Center, Knauz North (located approximately 1.2 miles north of the Autopark) with an indoor vehicle and tire storage facility.

Even in today's uncertain times, you can always find a friendly face at the Knauz Autopark and they will greet you with a smile.

    If you have been looking for a great dealership look no further. I walked out of two dealerships that had the car we wanted. Then I called Sam Picchietti... at Karl Knauz BMW. Sam was knowledgeable and treated us with respect and went above and beyond to get us the deal we needed. Sam's personal and professional manner was by far the best sales experience I have had in many years of car buying. Call Sam directly at Knauz BMW I am so glad he picked up our call!

    As mid 50's baby boomers my wife and I have purchased quite a few cars and have had a fair share of good and bad experiences. We had visited Knauz in the... recent past inquiring about a used Mini Clubman they had listed. Also I failed to mention we were current Mini owners and live in Glen Ellyn IL.so it was a bit of a journey to go to Lake Bluff. It was worth the trip! The service was great. We did not buy the car due to the size of it and our needs. Soon after we decided to look at Countryman All4's. After looking around we found little inventory in our area so we looked into ordering a car. Later we found an almost perfect match in Knauz's inventory. We made an appointment on the phone with the sales manager and met our salesman before we got in the building! We were shown and drove many cars and when it came time to deal our salesman Marc Lebovitz and the sales manager Peter Gioulos sat down and worked out the deal that put us a 2016 Countryman. Having them work with us as a team took the old 'I gotta run this by my boss' out of the deal. This was our best experience to date!

    This dealership and their employees go above and beyond in dealing with customers. You really are like one of the family to them. They are attentive... and professional the whole time. It starts at the top with Ryan Herbig and Peter Polanski. The finance fella, Vijay was so easy to work with. And thanks to Juan Villarreal for showing me how to use everything! And then giving me his card in case I had any questions----he knows I probably will at some point...Again, Thanks for everything... I love the new GLE 43!

    It was a pleasure to work with Peter on my new car purchase. This was a new model year and the car was ordered to spec. Peter's knowledge of the vehicle... made the process seamless. He was always available to answer questions and very responsive.
