Bocker always does a great job! The service dept is friendly and professional. Love that they vacuum the interior after an oil change. I've purchased several cars there, and have all service work done there. I trust them to do good work at a reasonable cost.
Worst engine I ever had

Initially I bought the car with very low mileage.29,000 thought I had a great deal. Then in 8 months the air conditioning went out and completely replace everything $1,500 by my mechanic. The drive axles went bad replace them not too bad couple hundred dollars. Using oil is a big problem always low when I checked it adding oil continuously. Then the engine shut down on me I was able to get it to my mechanic and he diagnosed that I needed a new engine. Ordered a new engine and he installed it $3,800. Now the exhaust manifold is cracked and I have to replace that another 300. I would not recommend a 2010 Equinox to anybody unless it got all fixed up already a motor new are you see new manifold new axles yeah then be a good time to buy it if you got a deal.
We have buying cars and trucks from Barkaus for years and years. They always treat us right. We have never had a bad experience dealing with this family owned business. Would highly recommend Barkau and Sons to anyone.

This car has been everything! I wanted a vehicle I could feel safe in and would get me where ever I needed with out a problem. It has all wheel drive which is great in the state I live in. It has plenty of room and it’s very sleek inside. I’m so happy I made this purchase.
Tim is a very helpful sales man and has a very nice support staff. They were able to get us a great deal and a excellent truck .

Better (2017) than Honda CRV (2015)

Bought a 2017 LT Equinox AWD in 2019
1) Quieter than CRV (5)
2) Braking is smoother than CRV (5)
3) Engines about equivalent (4)
4) Anti-lock brake on snow/ice condition better than CRV (5)
5) Mylink does not allow installing Carplay - worse than CRV (3) - have to rely on my wife's i-phone on a trip. I will give CRV a (4)
6) Back seat cannot recline - CRV reclines by ~2 inches (3) - only if I have to sit in the back
7) Reliability - TBD (CRV's battery died after 3.5 yrs)
8) Value: I paid ~$27 K in 2015 for a new CRV with AWD and ~$16K for this used Equinox (7400 miles) almost like new. I have been impressed except for the Carplay availability.
This was a fast easy experience. Tim answered all my questions and was patient with my indecision about what vehicle I wanted to purchase. Tim showed all the features of the vehicle and how to access them. Everything seemed to go smoothly as I was not waiting around long for paperwork or questions to be answered. I left the dealership confident in my purchase.
Fits us Perfectly
by Cole from Durant, OK

Great sized SUV to fit our all around needs. Not to big and not too small. Appealing interior with a sporty design. Just enough "bells & whistles" without having to bust out too much cash. Good fit for kids in the back seat or even a solo commuter with the highway MPG. Great trunk for groceries or travel necessities. Haven't had any performance issues yet. All-around solid car.
Found my new truck online and Tim made the purchase extremely easy! He was super fast at responding to any messages sent and got any information I needed immediately. I drove 3 hours to buy my truck and would do it again, I would also recommend him to any of my friends or family. He even left me a surprise when I got home, but you'll have to buy from him yourself to find that out.
Best car yet that I have owned. Heated seats, auto

My previous car was a 2011 equinox just upgraded to a 2017 equinox. I love this car. Make and model. Comfy and my faves color..get one...
Tim Border was our sales representative he was completely professional and very quick to answer any questions that i had. This was by far the easiest place i have ever made a car purchase. They gave me the time i needed to think everything over before making my purchase, when i needed to make a phone call or consult with somebody before a decision i was given as much time as i needed. Ive been to car lots where salesman were way too pushy trying to have you make a purchase you were unsure of and that was not the case at all with Tim. I needed to take two test drives with me and my fiance and once eith my father to get his input on the vans performace and we were all very pleased with the condition and performance of the vehicle. I had a concern about the wireless headphones for the DVD system and Tim made sure to get batteries for them so i could test them out before leaving. I would reccomend J.H Barkau to anyone i know in the area looking for a reliable vehicle from a reliable dealer. My fiance and I are extremely satisfied with our 2015 dodge caravan. Thanks Tim and i will definitely be a repeat customer! Quality of work i did not rate as i have not needed any work done to my van i will definitely update as needed though.
Best choice for my Adventures
by BoilerUp from West Lafayette, IN

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I have fallen in love with this car. Comfortable drive, great safety specs, and lots of room for all travel needs!
My wife and I identified a vehicle online and our salesman Tim Border made the transition of trading off our current vehicle to our new one an easy process. After taking a test drive, we knew this was the vehicle (at the right price) for us. After a few days, our loan came through from our bank. Tim held the vehicle for us. On a rainy Tuesday we traded our rusty (no heat) Uplander for a shiny, like new, Town and Country and hit the open road. We highly recommend Tim to others looking for a new or used vehicle.
Reliable, economical, comfortable, and enjoyable.

This Equinox is just what I needed.
Good handling with adequate power, comfort, and utility. It is a pleasure to drive and I feel proud to own it.
In Sept 2018 I was looking for a SUV and the Chevy Equinox met all my requirements. I purchased it for a fair price and it's January 2019 and 35,000 miles later I am still happy with my Equinox. I have had no issues except with the Michelin tires having to be replaced at 24,000 miles. Michelin pro-rated the tires and a new set cost me $400.00 plus tax and mounting/balance. I am very satisfied with my Equinox.
Love it! Was in a serious accident and the air bags saved me from getting hurt. I currently bought a 2019 to replace my other truck that I didn't plan to replace but keep until it won't run any more....
Excellent small crossover offers great mileage (averaging 29mpg city, and just completed 800-mile holiday trip at 34mpg that included hilly terrain.) Leather seats are a bit stiff, but everyrhing else is great.
I just love this car. The backup camera is awesome and really helps with blind spots. Talking about blind spots, it also lights up on the side mirrors when a car is in my blind spot while driving. It makes me so safe!
I just got my SUV a few days ago, but so far I absolutely love it! I was unsure about owning an equinox at first because I like a sporty looking vehicle but the one that I got was the right color and the interior is perfect!! It has the sportiness that I was looking for. It is exactly what I wanted and it has everything that I was wanting. It met all of my checks on the list. I am so glad I was able to purchase this vehicle.
2016? Check underneath for rust and leaks. Lots of rust for 2-3year old truck. Plus one of the rear gadgets has a leak. The LS infotainment system does not accommodate Android phones unless you pay for OnStar. This mean no navy unless you pay $60 a month. I'm not happy with my Equinox nor Chevy in general.
Great service and great people. The rep was great about showing all the features of the automobile. The financing was quick and easy! You will love doing business here!
Had the most comfortable experience at Dash Galler
