Recently purchased a 2011 CTSV from Robbie. I've never bought a vehicle out of state without looking at or having it looked at or without even driving it. I closed my eyes and pulled the trigger. The car was everything described and much more. Robbie (LAS) was very easy to deal with. Not pushy. Not your typical "salesman". The whole experience was easy and fast. There was no hisitation. I would def recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a car in or out of state. 2 thumbs up

Owned since July 2012 new

The car was designed on a Euro model so to speak, Seems very continental, great engine, ok gas mileage, comfortable and seems to be more expensive than it is. Only "repair" issue was water pump covered by warranty, Definitely the manual was the way to go, easy to shift and fun driving, but my alternative reason was that everyone seemed to be complaining about the dual clutch auto which had issues of reliability but also drivers unaware of how to actually drive a dual clutch car. The main complaint is the fairly large number of recalls, the latest is for a faulty computer reading of the gas pressure valve which can leave it stuck and collapse the gas tank and even make the car inoperable, Still waiting for a letter when I can get it fixed. Never had a car failure due to a recall issue, but a pain in the derriere to have to take it in for them. Overall, got the car new for 11K so a good deal in the end for me. Once the bugs are handled, if you buy the manual you'll get a pretty fun cheap ride that serves most purposes,

I purchased a 2016 Honda CRV from the DesPlaines Honda Autonation dealership.Our sales associate, Jericho Davitto, was extremely friendly and helpful. He helped us find just the right model that matched our preferences. Jericho was great in explaining the details of the various features available in the different models and was extremely patient with us throughout the car purchasing process. In fact, I noticed that everyone on the sales staff were friendly and courteous. Jericho made sure the car buying experience was hassle-free and fun! I am very glad I went to AutoNation in Des Plaines!

Good car for my 1st Ford in over 30 years
by seahawkfan from Toronto, Canada
February 15, 2019

The 2012 Ford Focus SEL for my use is a very user friendly and comfortable car for both city and highway driving. I the 160 HP motor is responsive, easy to pass with, and efficient on gas. The DCT transmission works well, but you have to get use to how they work. Ford has gone the extra mile in customer service to extend the mfrs. DCT transmission warranty to up to 200K as a customer satisfaction effort. This a good thing and welcomed by this consumer. Overall styling is very European and a fresh design for a North American car maker. GM tried but in MHO failed to deliver. I have been driving Mercedes Benz for a while and this Ford has made me rethink my options when it comes to my next purchase.

I bought a 2004 VW Phaeton from Umer. Price was very very good. Car is beautiful and the service of Umer was excellent. I would highly recommend this honest, truthful gentleman who knows his cars and went out of his way to close the deal. We were late getting there because of some slow traffic and he had to stay beyond usual closing time. A real pleasing experience. J.E. Arata, M.D., FACS

I was there with my family and we were treated well! I have to autistic 5yr old twin girls and we didn't feel anxious or awkward while we were there. The kids play area was nice although my kids weren't very interested. The manager Fred was very nice and helpful. They worked out a great deal for our new family vehicle. I recommend this dealership to anyone, but especially to families who have special needs kids. With the worries of feeling out of place it's nice to go to a place and not get the awkward stares.

The car is excellent for in-town driving and gets great gas mileage using flex fuel. Easy to handle and park. It has new tires which makes it feel like you are driving it new off the showroom floor.

Oak Lawn Toyota Review
"Outstanding Customer Service"
by Millie from DealerRater.com
November 5, 2018
5 5 5 5 5 4.7 (1509 reviews)
I became familiar with Oak Lawn Toyota last December when my daughter purchased my 16 year old grandson his first car in December 2015. She raved about the excellent customer service she received from John Beris. She said he was knowledgeable, honest, efficient, professional and he had provided the best customer service she had ever received. She said, John realized the magnitude of the moment for her buying a car for her son and even took a picture with my grandson handing him his first set of car keys to his "2004 Toyota Corolla S". I heard about Oak Lawn Toyota a second time, when my daughter was in the market for a new truck in May of 2016. Because of the excellent customer service she had previously received, she went back to Oak Lawn Toyota. She said it was like dealing with a member of the family. He took great care of her, and again was the ultimate professional and provided phenomenal customer service. My daughter left very happy in her "2015 Toyota Rav 4". So it was only right when I was in need of a new car this month (August 2016), I immediately called my daughter up and asked her if she could take me to Oak lawn Toyota. She stopped at Oak Lawn Toyota and told John she would be coming back with her mother and when we arrived John met us at the door. He was extremely nice to me. While we were there on Saturday the power went out and it wasn't expected to be back on before close of business so John said we would have to come back to finish the process on Monday. He called my daughter on Monday, just like he said he would and when we arrived back at the dealership, John was ready to service us immediately. And because my daughter bought a car for her son, herself, and now I (her mother) was buying a car (3 cars in less then a year), they put a remote starter on my car at no charge! My newly purchased car would not be able to be serviced to add the remote start until the following Monday. Rob came to my house on Sunday, picked up my car and left me a loaner car (a 2017 Toyota Camry), drove my car back to Oak Lawn Toyota on Monday, had the remote starter put on my car and drove it back to my house Monday night. I am sure he was exhausted from work, but he took the time to show me how to work the remote starter, made sure I understood and then he took the loaner car back to Oak Lawn Toyota for me...talk about OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!! It doesn't get better than that. Thank you Oak Lawn Toyota for treating us like family...my grandson, my daughter and I will be forever appreciative of your kindness.

Surprisingly fantastic little car.
by Liquidether from Ann Arbor, MI

I rented a Ford Focus hatchback to go look at an Audi at a dealership. I was so impressed with the Ford Focus over the Audi that I drove back home and immediately started looking for a Ford Focus. Owned one ever since. It's a fantastic little car with excellent gas mileage and all of the features (SEL trim) a modern driver demands. Aside from the early model transmission issues these are incredibly comfortable and reliable cars. Not a sports car but if you really like to accelerate between stoplights they have the ST model to throw you to the back of your seat. I highly recommend this car.

Most useless car
by RebelRad from Ontario

This years ford focuses were nothing but a disaster . I am writing this review for those that want to buy a ford focus 2012 or 2013 , these years models have a major problem with transmission and computer module and whatever ford does it can not be fixed. I have experienced two years of suffering with this as it was hard to sell since everybody knew about the problem but me . The transmission shakes a lot at low speed commonly known as transmission shudder clutch , on top of that there is a serious problem with the internal computer module that interfere with electrical system . I had to traded in for an unbelievably low amount of price just to get rid of it . I do not recommand this car to anyone .

i had seen some cars on the internet that i was interested in, so i called to make an appointment. When we got to My Choice Motors, a 90 mile drive, both cars were ready for inspection. It took a while for the appraisal for my in so we had to leave early. The first offer for my trade was low ,so we left.. Two days later Charles. our salesman called asking me what i wanted, i told him and he called back saying they would give me what i wanted. I drove back up and everything went smoothly. Fahad spent a lot of time going over things inside the car. The car was immaculate and all ready to go. Fahad called the next day to make sure things were fine. I had a positive experience and would buy from them again.

It still surprises me that I have bought two luxury suv???s and a 3500 Ram truck from M&I Imports in a year, without ever meeting my exceptional salesman, Joel. Or visiting your dealership and without personally inspecting the automobiles. This was completely out of character for me. My purchase was made possible because of Joel???s knowledge of the subject cars; the high level of professionalism and service provided to me through M&I Imports, financing was made in a snap! The teams honesty, prompt hard work and integrity is the best, I have had in 40 years. The cars arrived in Colorado from Chicago exactly as represented.... Beautiful! Regardless where you live you owe it to yourselves to give Joel a call and check out M&I Imports. It???s the gold standard when buying luxury pre-owned vehicles. I will certainly continue to recommend them to my family and friends. Thank you, Joel and team for such an outstanding job and purchasing experience.

66k excellent miles
by The Real Deal from Houston, TX
September 10, 2018

The Ford Focus was the hatch to buy back in 2012, and it has been excellent for me. The manual transmission and absence of touchscreen avoided any weaknesses, and I have enjoyed 66k trouble-free miles. It is fun to drive, even if I sometimes wish it was a little faster. I have averaged over 33 MPG since I got it, so operating costs have been as low as can be expected. The traction control and ABS worked fantastic in New Jersey winters, and the AC does the job in Texas summers.
We found additional vehicles that are close to your year range.

As I was walking up to the door Nick opened it for us, greeted us, and immediately introduced himself. We were there for a specific car (2013 Cadillac Ats) he found it on the lot and we were off for a test drive. He answered questions and working with him was a pleasure. We were in and out in about an hour and a half including the test drive. I bought the car and it was a great experience.

I love this car. I have the Titanium hatchback and it is super sporty and fun to drive. The interior is comfortable and everything is perfectly located for the driver's convenience. The push-button start and keyless entry mean no more fumbling for keys -- just leave them in a pocket or purse and go. Sony stereo sounds excellent with a subwoofer in the trunk. You can't go wrong with this model.

We bought a brand new and amazingly good looking inside and out 2014 Focus Titanium. The car was for my wife. She drove test the car. She fell in love and we took it. BIG MISTAKE! I drove it for the first time one week later and realize immediately what a defective dual transmission this car possesses. I think, the best way to describe it is like “having a teenager learning how to drive a standard shift transmission car for the first time”. When you start driving slowly from any stop, the car shakes in a jerky motion six or eight times before shifting. Every speed shift you can “VIOLENTLY” feel it, and occasionally a loud clank can be heard out of nowhere. All of this happens in Auto or Manual mode. In slow or fast speed. Don’t try to pass another vehicle because when you try, the transmission will shift 3 to 4 seconds after you press the accelerator. Three weeks after we acquired it, I took it to the Ford dealer. The technician drove it. The Service Manager drove it, and they both agreed that this transmission is a royal piece of $#!+, BUT, they can’t do anything about it because Ford Motors Co. says IT IS A NORMAL BEHAVIOR IN THIS CAR. They printed what Ford says and gave it to me. In it, acknowledges everything I mentioned but arguing that is perfectly normal. Normal in a car that just came out of the oven? That is BS! We tried to return the darn vehicle and the depreciation in five weeks made it impossible to afford. Now we’re stock with this beautiful car, which, other than the transmission, it is amazing. Sad to see how FMC mocks his customers, and don’t take responsibility. In 2017 we bought our 11th new car. A Chevrolet Malibu LT with dual transmission. Boy! What a difference. One of the best cars we have owned. Imagine that the transmission doesn’t exist. You can’t feel the car shifting at any speed. No more Ford for us.

2014 Ford Focus SE Review
The most unique transmission i have ever driven.

First off I would just like to say for all of the people complaining about the auto 6spd, this transmission is very unique. Its actually a manual transmission, It has a dry clutch pack and no torque converter. The shifting of the gears and clutch are just automated. I have seen so many complaints about it being shaky taking off from a dead stop but Ford says it's normal. You have to drive this car like a manuel, taking off from a dead stop you cannot baby the throttle. You have to blip the gas and roll into it just like you would in a normal manuel car. Again since it's a automated manuel when you are slowing down it uses engine breaking very effectively I may add. Breaking last seconded the computer disengages clutch so it's in neutral at thw mercy of the breaks. This transmission has adaptive learning so it watches your driving habits. When you baby the throttle consistantly from a dig so many times the computer learns that behavior and that's why the jerkiness happens. You cannot baby this car, for at "automatic" trans it sure is rev happy. My gf will drive it for awhile and it will start doing that bc she babys it. When I get into it I'm trying to drive it how I know it wants driven but its confused bc it knows my gf's driving habits. You can make it learn new habits driving it for awhile it will re-adapt back to you OR from a 10mph roll you pin the pedal to the floor till it hits 100. Everytime I do it the car is so much more peppy afterwards, throttle is more responsive, doesnt shift till abt 4500 instead of 2500, just feels more torquey and it stops the jerkiness it has learned from someone else. This car is a blast to drive once I researched how it likes to be driven, i must say its definitely a one of a kind driving experience. Because of the sophistication of the "automated manuel" transmission, when you buy this car they REALLY REALLY should educated people on how exactly this transmission works!!
