I just purchased a Honda HRV from McGrath. The customer service was awesome!! Darek Smorczewski Is the man to contact. He’ll make it a comfortable purchasing experience! In addition, all the McGrath team very nice and eager to help you. Thank you!
One of the best experiences we had buying a car. We went in just to take a look at a used SUV. It was listed as the second best price with the 3rd lowest miles around. Thought it was too good to be true.
We stopped at the dealership and went straight to look at it. Very good shape for the year. Went in to ask to take it for a test drive and was approached by a Salesman Alec Polivka. Great young man, easy to talk to and polite. Gathered our information, pulled the car around, and went along with us for the drive. After getting back, we started the 'dreaded' process of negotiating a price. Not the bad experience you hear horror stories about. This is where we were introduced to the Sales Manager.
Brent Reeves came and asked what he could do for us. He wanted to close the sale. We had a little give and take, but came to a price that was where I wanted to be at for the total price. Again very polite, easy to deal with, and quick with any answers to our questions. Now I have to say at this point is where I started to get nervous. I have read other reviews that the finance department was not up to rest of the standards of sales department.
This is where George Othon came to get us to give us the low down on the final price and payments. Accurate, efficient, easy going, and funny. We didn't want any extra warranties of protection added to the costs of the purchase. I was relived when we did not get the hard sell on trying to get the add-ons at the end of the sale. Payment was less than what we were quoted before on the sales floor. This was a pleasant surprise, usually it goes the other way at dealerships and try to squeeze every last cent out of the deal.
The only odd part was the layout of the inside of the showroom. This is so low on the list I didn't even want to mention it. I don't believe everything in the review should be positive, but I needed to stretch to put in something that I didn't like. I may or may not receive the best deal around. It felt like I did and it was in our budget. Our last car was purchased at the Elgin McGrath location. That was a average experience where this was a great experience.
Buying a car can be a little intimidating, Thankfully the staff here tried to make it as quick and painless as possible. Stephen was happy to let me test drive the car and was very knowledgeable about the different features. My only complaint would be the wait times during the credit check. I know that it takes a while to send your information out so it isn't a bad mark on the dealership but I did wait quite a while. Bearing in mind that the dealership will only improve over time (since they will be moving to a bigger building) this is a great place to buy a car.
The service department is simply the best, the service Manager Ben, Joe service advisor and the rest of the staff are profeesional with years of experience. Wouldn't go any where else more matter which vehicle I would have serviced
I had great experience with salesman Lucas Saliba.He was very informative and knowledgeble.He answered on all questions and was very helpful.Really nice guy and very professional.He was very patient and spent a plenty of time with me and my wife to help and find the best car for us.Thank you Lucas.
I purchased a CR-V to replace a previously owned SUV which was totaled in a non-moving accident. The purchasing process was smooth and painless. The dealership has a very large selection and after test driving 4 different model years, I settled on 2015 model year. The rep, Dan Aristizabal, was friendly to work with and there were no hard sales tactics. Overall, a pleasant vehicle purchasing experience.
I couldn't have picked a better place than Continental Honda to buy my first new car. Terry Scudieri, Steve Burda and Justin Norwood made the experience pleasant and stress-free. They were friendly and helpful without being overbearing. They got me the car I wanted with the exact specs, and had it on their lot and ready to go in under a week, during a holiday period. When the car arrived, they got me in and out of the dealership in under two hours, and answered all of my questions in a knowledgeable way. I've reached out to both Terry and Justin with additional questions since buying my car, and their response time was as quick as you could possibly expect. I'll definitely be back at Continental for my next car.
I have been taking my Hondas (wife and I both have one) to Muller Honda of Gurnee since it was Rosen Honda back in the late 1990's. They always provide great service. Even when I would bring in my wifes old 1995 Civic with 250k miles, they always treated me well and I never felt looked down upon because " It's that guy again with the really old car". They were always very professional in evaluating my newer Honda or my wifes really old one and offering practical repairs. Meaning, I didn't experience a bunch of up-selling to fix problems with my 1995 civic that did have a few leaks and such but would not be worth dumping a ton of money into such an old car. My wife has a new 2018 Civic now and I am expecting the same great service I had in the past.
Staff were really helpful I especially appreciate Pedro. He walked me through everything I needed. I was able to get a car even though I am in the process of rebuilding my credit.The car runs really good.
