Wonderful experience. Very organized, efficient, friendly and professional. All paperwork was prepared in advance and every detail thought of to provide a pleasant and fun experience. We drove from out of state to buy the car we wanted, but will do it again to buy what Knauz offers in the future because instant trust was built.

Thank you so much for making the trip from out of state to work with us, & congratulations on your new BMW! We appreciate your kind words!

After months of research, decided to purchase a new BMW X5. From the initial contact with Bob Geisheker until the delivery, my every expectation was exceeded. Once we realized we had to order the vehicle, Bob and Luke (the genius) guided us through the ordering process, and, once the deposit was made and the order placed, I was able to follow the build on the BMW site from start to finish. All told, it was 26 days from the time we placed the order until we picked the X5 up at the dealership. Kudo’s to Bob, Luke, and Doug for making this purchase a truly memorable experience. And additional Kudo’s to Dave, Cesar, and Jeremy in the Service Department who provided advice and guidance during the selection of options prior to ordering the car. This is the second car we’ve purchase through Bob, and the fourth BMW overall from Knauz. A great dealership!

I recently purchased a 2021 BMW 330e from Bob Geisheker and the team at Karl Knauz BMW, and the experience far exceeded expectations at every stage of the buying process. Having purchased five (5) prior BMWs from other Chicagoland dealerships over the last 15 years, I became conditioned to be a "love the product, detest the dealership" sort of buyer. When I first stepped into Knauz and spoke with Bob, that all changed. His calm, steady-handed, personable approach was evident from the beginning, and the interactions quickly demonstrated to me that he and the Knauz team were deeply invested in customer experience management, and not just the financial mechanics of a new car sale. Altogether, I got my new 330e in 5 days, felt great about the purchase, and greatly enjoyed my experience with Bob and Knauz BMW. Additionally, Luke Wojtas (Knauz BMW Genius) did an outstanding job preparing and coordinating my delivery. The 330e is my first PHEV, and Luke delivered an excellent walkthrough of the 330e's battery/range, charging, drive modes, and new software enhancements from my previous X3. Similar to Bob, Luke brought a great demeanor and added to the joy and excitement of the new car.

Dealer response

Hi Matthew, thank you for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review. We feel that the ownership experience of a BMW should reflect the quality of the product, so we're thrilled to receive your comments! It's wonderful to hear you describe your experience working with Bob & Luke to purchase & get familiarized with your new 3 Series. Congratulations on your new 330e! We appreciate your business, as well as your kind words. We're looking forward to the next opportunity to work with you!

I recently purchased a 2021BMW from Bob Geisheker, this is the second car that I have purchased from Bob. Both of these transactions have been great and Bob is the reason why, he’s the best. Thank you Bob. I have been coming to Knauz for many years and am always pleased with the friendlyness and good service. Would recommend to anyone looking to buy a BMW, Mercedes, or other vehicle,
