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.
Mike is extremely knowledgeable about Mercedes models. He is very prompt with questions and responses and follows up. A pleasure to deal with. The two vehicles I was pricing out were competitive nationally.
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.
Walked in one day after previously looking at a new car in the lot for my wife. Within 10 minutes after talking to John Vanik and Tim Duda I received and excellent lease deal on a new Rouge Sport that I could live with.They gave me a rock bottom deal, much better than I had expected. A few days later I came back to lease the vehicle. They also gave me a great price on the paint protection package.
They were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend them and the dealership.
My experience with Autohaus was beyond my expectations. Speciallt my sales associate, Mr. Michael Perez, was very friendly and very helpful in many ways. Mr. Perez tring to explain every little thing every possible way so I don't have any problems later on.
We started our process looking for our next car by looking around all over the internet for the perfect Mercedes. As fate had it, our perfect match for an E400 was located at Mercedes-Benz of Hoffman Estates. At the time, my wife and I only were in the beginning stages for figuring out what our next car was going to be. It was a Saturday we planned to test drive cars and then review what we liked/didn't like and buy at a later date, Once we met with our assigned sales member, Greg Bolte, we knew we were in good hands. Greg gave us the overview and tour of the E400 we were considering and answered all of our questions with the utmost care and professionalism. After the test drive, Greg was genuinely interested in our thoughts and what we were looking for. Even though we were in a spot to buy as inventory moves quickly, Greg and Tom were never pushy or aggressive with their sales technique. A technique that both my wife and I appreciated. We took time to think over the prospect of buying the E400. It just made sense and these were the people we wanted to give our business to. The buying process and financing team that we worked with, including Jose Gomez, were a breeze to work with for this purchase. The team kindly stayed late past closing to ensure we could drive away that evening in our new car. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
We went there with high hopes and weren't disappointed!! Sebastian was fantastic and did everything he could to make this buying experience a great one, THANK YOU. Patrick, lives with sponge Bob under the sea, the finance manager was phenomenal with helping out and not breaking our pockets. Thank you Muller team!! Keep up the great work, and always keep that personality!!
I had looked at several cars at several dealerships. I???m a 30???s male so other dealerships offered varrying responses from doubt and disrespect to kindness and attentiveness. Hoffman was the latter. I was welcomed immediately. I had the fortune to work with Ronnie. He was prepared (I had called ahead) with any and all information I had requested. Answered all questions in depth. Ronnie was respectful, diligent, and kept things moving without being pushy. Kelly in finance really worked hard to find the right set of options to get % and payment where I needed it to be. Kelly offered real, honest answers and had an ability to utilize all tools available at 9:00 p.m. to complete the transaction. Kelly is a true professional that I???d request next time. After finance was finished Ronnie pulled my trade in up to garage and offered a couple nice cloth bags to help me move things from one car to the other. Even after I had pulled out of the garage and parked to set up and famiarize myself with controls at 9:30 he stuck around and made sure I was all set and left behind me. Really a great guy with the right attitude. Everyone, in fact, treated me as well as Ronnie from start to finish. Left feeling good about my decision. Left feel great about the experience and the deal I got on a car! A 2016 E400 fully loaded with 3,000 miles for a steal. Got all the room and motor I really wanted in the budget I had in mind. Seriously great place to buy a car.
Came in to see a car that I saw online. It was a 2008 RDX. Car was very clean. Car drove well. All clean inside. Got a bit off the listed price and picked up the car the next day. Car was detailed and had oul changed too. Drove home. Battery though was weak and died at home. Brought car back and they put new bateery in on a Saturday first thing. Took less than 30 min. Great customer service...
Impressed with the overall treatment. No pressure and great attitude from the entire sales staff. Piotr went out of his way to ensure my new vehicle was in mint condition and answered all questions. Highly recommended dealership.
I have been wanting a Audi S4 for sometime, based on a family member's recommendation of Ultimo, I checked their website, and found the exact car I was looking for, I stopped in to check it out and was greeted my Michael. Michael was very easy going and very knowledgeable. He let me test drive the car, and let me check it out. There were no high pressure sales tactics. I went home to think about it, and ended up going back a few days later to test drive it again and ended up buying it. About a week after buying it, the transmission started making noise. I contacted Michael and Scott at Ultimo, they had me take it in to a shop that they prefer. Turns out the transmission needed to be replaced. Ultimo paid for the replacement and provided a loaner car for me. I am very glad to have my S4 back! Michael and Scott were very pleasant to work with. I look forward to doing business with such a stand up place again.
Great experience at this dealer!! This is the way to do business ! Transparent, honest and correct. Got a good deal on my trade in, a good deal on the pre-owned car and letf the dealer with a very positive experience. Definitly will come back for future purchases.
Thanks Denis for all the patient!
Tom Wittkofski and Seraphin were of great help in getting my GL in, repaired, and back out on the street expeditiously. It is always a pleasure working with concerned professionals like Tom and Seraphin.
Michael Hurst was my sales associate and he went above and beyond to satisfy my needs. I was very pleased with him along with the service manager Michael Banks(I believe that's his last name) in assisting with purchasing my GLC 300. Due to my limited time schedule they were able to accommodate me by bringing my vehicle to me wrapped in a nice red bow. I would recommend seeing Michael Hurst to purchase any vehicle. Michael displayed honesty, patience, and a level head during the financial aspect along with narrowing down my decision of vehicle. He is a true gem to work with and I look forward to working with him in the future. He did an awesome job!
Exceptional car buying experience. Salesman Rich Heidecke made my car buying experience stressless. The customer service was impeccable.
