    I drove 3 hours and 30 minutes! and I would do it again to buy a car here. I recently bought 2015 White CLA. I am typical asian (Yes I am cheap), I have... been searching online for 3 months to get a good deal on CLA. I got few good deals, but those cars were involved in accident (doesn't show on carfax), otherwise too expensive for quality of the car. Tjelmeland dealer may be small and doesn't look fancy (I was surprised), BUT I can say they are the best dealer in IL. They are trustworthy and very patient. I was skeptical to pay in full and leaving without a title. So I had to call my lawyer and insurance to make sure it is valid. took more than 30 min and it was already past their opening hours. They did not rush me at all, they have been nice for the whole time. Most importantly, negotiation was smooth (I got the best deal in my 3 months of search), and the quality of the car is perfect. It has been 1 week since I got the car. Perfect!!! It takes 7 hours to go there and come back, but I will do another business with them. They made car buying experience very plesant (which is normally frustrating)

    I found my new Porsche Cayman R listed on Cars.com. What immediately struck me was the amount of information provided by Joel in the listing. The second... striking aspect of the listing was the quality of the vehicle, and Joel's assurance the car was in excellent condition. The price was great, and Joel's level of communication inspired me to purchase the car even being out of state. I flew to Springfield to meet Joel and look at the vehicle in person. The car was indeed in perfect condition. I was not able to drive the vehicle back to Dallas so Joel arranged for the vehicle to be delivered to me. It was clear Joel only sells quality vehicles. I will definitely reach out to Joel again for another car purchase!
