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.

Excellent in snow. Forget to turn it off because its so quiet and smooth. Ride and maneuverbility are excellent. Its like a sports car 4x4 and luxury car all in one
We always have a great experience at Barkau. Jim has sold us many cars. He is very knowledgeable and helpful every time. Highly recommend Barkau & Jim
Jeep Compass 2018 - Great vehicle!

My wife and I purchased this vehicle to have a safe and comfortable 4x4 for our new baby. This vehicle drives like a luxury vehicle. It is very smooth on handling, very smooth shifting and just great vehicle overall. This vehicle gets better gas mileage than my wife's Mazda 3 used to get. The interior is very comfortable as well. I would recommend spending an extra couple hundred dollars and getting the heated seats and steering wheel in cold climate areas. Great handling in the snow. It has settings for sand and mud but my wife won't let me take it in the sand or mud =)
It was an easy pain free process. Everyone was nice and friendly. Oil changes for life for free and fresh made cookies. Go see Aaron if you need a new car!

One week after my purchase of a 2018 Compass Trailhawk, my vehicle began leaking transmission fluid and spent 5 weeks in the shop. I made my first payment while driving a rental. My next vehicle will be a Toyota
This is a no-nonsense place to buy a practical car. It's not fancy, and there are no matching golf shirts on the staff. For a small dealer, they had a good selection of practical affordable cars, and it's worth the trip to Shullsburg. We bought a Chevy Volt (LOVE this car.) We would definitely look here again. The car has been great, no problems, just low low gas bills! Car was as advertised. Very happy with it.
I drove a friends and fell in love immediately

The vehicle was very comfortable and drove so smoothly very easy to handle I love all the space it’s just what I may be looking for
We were impressed enough with the prices we saw online from Shullsburg Auto to make an 80-mile trip from Iowa to Wisconsin. We found a car and purchased it. We were never given a hard-sell, and the negotiations were hassle-free. Unfortunately, we had a problem transferring the title to Iowa. There was a paperwork glitch that there was no way anyone could have known about beforehand. BJ at Shullsburg Auto was amazing! He was able to get everything worked out and kept us up to date throughout the process. We ended up with a great car from a great dealer. We will drive the 80 miles to buy from BJ and Shullsburg Auto again!
Great little 4x4

The inside of car feels more comfortable & larger then it looks. Great small SUV. Great price & drives smooth. Great for around town and freeway driving!
Down to earth people who will help you find the best car for your lifestyle and budget! They will go over and beyond to help you! They truly want to help you find what you are looking for and won’t take advantage of you like many dealerships will! Very honest and helpful staff. Highly recommend buying at Van Horn!
Very reliable car

This vehicle very comfy, small an cute for a jeep. Been that I just got it, still trying to flex its muscles, but overall its a beautiful running car.
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.
Best Jeep ever I love it.

If you’re shopping for a new car or Jeep hawk Chrylser dodge Jeep in forest park is the best place The for a great deal.
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.
Love the way it feels and drives.

I had no intention of buying a new car until I drove a rental Compass and just couldn't believe how it drove. I highly recommend test driving this car if you are thinking of buying a new vehicle.
Over Memorial weekend I began having some car trouble, I was concerned about driving it. I called and spoke to Wade and he said he would look into getting me a loaner, but there was nothing available. Wade then gave me his car as a loaner until I could get my Jeep fixed. This is above and beyond, thanks Wade, and also a thanks to the great service team at Van Horn!
we almost everything about our 2018 Jeep Compass

Everything is great except for one thing. We dislike the stop/start feature. It does not save gas like they say it does and the fact it has to be hard on the engine and the starter and the fact if the system fail to start back up , it may leave a family stuck in a dangerous traffic situation...I was not use to it and gave it too much acceleration and nearly rear ended the car in front of me..... This device is a big joke.......
I contacted Shullsburg Auto in Wisc. about more info on the Ranger asking for pictures of the insides especially the seats and also for a Carfax report about 3 weeks ago never received any thing except a message stating the truck was still on their lot. I would be flying up from Texas to purchase this truck so I wanted as much info as possible before traveling that far.
I love my new Compass!

I searched online for at least a year now, looking for the Exact car I wanted and I found my perfect Jeep at Larry Roesch.
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.
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.
Great salesman, not pushy. Kyle showed us what we wanted to see without trying to shove something else down out throats. Financing and the buying process was simple and hassle free.

The size and the style is a great fit for my family!
