You’ll be greeted promptly, and everything will seem smooth and easy till you reach the finances part where someone should really shout “game time”...
The financial process was really tense, if not dark and shady. I walked in with my own approved credit from another bank, but they pushed for another application of their own finance department which I agreed to. To my surprise I was approved for a lower rate with but I did not know that till I refused to buy with th rate they quoted me and started walking out. I’m talking about them trying to get me on a 13.5% instead of 5.9% that I ended up buying the car with, and I only did because I really liked the car... one more thing don’t count one the free loaner most of the time, but they will arrange a shuttle service for you...
Smooth Sailing with Sam, Chris and Thijs at the Autobarn

I was interested a pre-owned Acura that the Autobarn had for sale. I had discussed the car with one of the sales managers, Jonathan, on the phone the day before, and had done my research. I called the morning of our visit and spoke to Sam to arrange a test drive. When we arrived, our salesman Sam was waiting for us, and the car was prepped for our test drive. The car was as described on their website - no surprises. We decided to purchase the car. The whole process of negotiating a sales price and valuing our trade was really easy and smooth. We never felt the pressure that is common at car dealers. Their finance person Chris got us a really good rate on our loan, even making calls to people he knows at the various local banks. We are very happy with our experience at the Autobarn.
Claudia Zires was extremely helpful during the buying, financing, and general sales experience. We drove over 8 hours to get the car that suited me and everything was exactly as she said it was, no surprises, just a quick buying process. She even had our truck that we traveled in washed while we went over the financing options. I highly suggest anyone who is looking to buy a car to consider the Autobarn Mitsubishi of Evanston during their search.
Although it wasn???t the deal we ideally wanted, I must say how excellent of a customer service that Claudia rendered to myself and my dad. She was prompt with the 2016 Prius to take it for a test drive and at the same time was very friendly. She diligently sought her manager as we negotiated prices and handled the paperwork flawlessly as we closed the deal. I would recommend her as one of the top sales representative at the dealership. Thank you for your service and I???m looking forward to enjoying years of driving my fuel efficient Prius!
I came to the dealership and everyone work there came to meet me. The particular car I wanted was waiting on me when I arrived .my sale person was Claudia Zires was very knowledgeable. I promise this was the best experience I ever had a a dealership.the finance manager Steve was very up front with me everyone was honest from start.
I got the car I wanted at the price I was willing to pay with no hassle! Great customer service and experience with everyone I Worked with. Very helpful throughout the whole process from financing to setting up onstar.
We went to look at a used truck here. The sales person introduced himself almost immediately and began asking questions to help us find what we were looking for. Already had a truck in mind based off the website. We went for a test drive and he was very helpful with all of our questions. The manager and sales rep spoke with us after the test drive and were more than willing to work with us. I did not have that good gut feeling about the vehicle and they were definitely understanding. While we did not purchase the truck, it was a great experience regardless. I cannot rate them on service. The facility was nice but seemed a little crowded and not personal (deals made at open tables with many other people around).
