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.
Recently went by Chicago Fine Motors to look at two vehicles they had in stock. The whole process took less than 1.5 hours from arrival till leaving with the vehicle we wanted. Very straight forward process with no games.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!
These two guys negotiated with us to give us the best deal possible to drive out with our new truck tonight! Will definitely recommend them to anybody that is looking to get a new car/truck! They???re the guys to go to! 10/10.. because the scale only goes up to 10!
Drove up to Castle Honda to look at a car we seen posted on Cars.com. After finding the car, we were able to look at it without being rushed by salespeople . The used car department is laid back yet professional with excellent customer service Ali & Josh were great to work with!
I stopped in here just browsing and ralph let me test drive about 4 cars till I fell in love with my BMW he did amazing on getting me approved even with a bankruptcy on my report and a great price on the car I saved almost 3k on what others have for that same car.
I was looking for a specific car that was at this CarMax. Problem was that I live in Minnesota, not Chicago and would have to traveling a great distance for a car I had not seen other than in pics, potentially risking wasting a great deal of time and money. I had to trust Jonathan, my salesman, to tell me the condition of the car where the pics could not. He was completely honest and the car was exactly what he said it was. Between Jonathan and Adam, the sales manager i was able to close the deal and drive back to home within an hour. I am completely pleased with the car and 100% satisfied with the dealership. I guess you can trust a car dealership. I did and they did not let me down. Thanks guys.
I have nothing but good things to say about CarLotz! The buying process is very friendly and there's no pressure! Everyone that works there is very customer oriented and you can tell they want their customers to be happy! I knew when I first started talking to LaDale that I was going to buy a car from him. He was the friendliest salesman I dealt with all day and was happy to bring out anything I wanted to see and test drive! After a couple, I sat down in my new car and knew it was the one! He got me a great price and I love it! Dont hesitate, go see them today! Thanks guys!
This was our second car purchase from Mike and we were just as happy this time as we were last time. Our first time we met Mike we almost bought from him. We were going through financing and then decided to not buy. We felt bad for how it went down. A few months later we returned. We were a bit worried that how things went the first time might affect how he would treat this time. Well he was great and went through with a purchase of a Pacifica. It took a few trips because we have 3 kids and Mike was patient and very understanding. This last purchase took a total of 2 hours and we again are totally pleased . He has very good product knowledge and listens to what we want. We like his down to earth demeanor and that he isn???t pushy. We have given his name out to several of our friends and hopefully he will get a few sales from them. Finding a car salesman who is honest and not just out for the sale is hard to do. Mike is that kind of person. Thank you again Mike and we will be back when we need another vehicle.
I was a little put off by the fact that they were going to send me off without a copy of my multipoint inspection. When I brought it to the attention of the two service providers, they confirmed the only thing that came up was the three services (spark plugs, fuel injector, coolant flush) that they had told me about. Regardless, I wanted a copy of it for my records should anything happen or come up. Instead of asking the tech for it, the female service advisor just grabbed a blank one and marked everything 'green.' How do I know at that point that the inspection was even done? Quite frankly, this is the second dealership I've visited, and after countless issues with Kia overall, I am thankful my car is paid off and I will never get another one again.
Ron is the greatest he takes his time and gets it done!! Let???s you know everything keeps it real him and joe. Thanks again for all you guys did to get me in a 2018 yayyyyyyy🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 and I???ll definitely recommend everyone to come talk to the number 1 sales man Mr. Lilly
