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.
Claudia Zires was extremely helpful during the buying, financing, and general sales experience. We drove over 8 hours to get the car that suited me and everything was exactly as she said it was, no surprises, just a quick buying process. She even had our truck that we traveled in washed while we went over the financing options. I highly suggest anyone who is looking to buy a car to consider the Autobarn Mitsubishi of Evanston during their search.
Took car in for what we thought was alternator. Turns out it was just a bad battery. In and out quick and at we paid about $20 over what I would have paid had I done it myself and that included labor. Worth it.
Peter Demmar and Tom Dvorak are wonderful salesmen that I would enjoy working with again. They were not pushy and very accommodating at the same time. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an upgrade to their current Subaru and their first Subaru.
Paul Forsythe is a great salesperson. I wanted a car in black but they did not have any on the lot. Napleton did have one at their other location. My salesperson went there and brought the black one back to Arlington Heights. I definitely recommend Paul Forsythe.
Honda on Grand went above and beyond! The used car market is tough to navigate to say the least. They didn't pressure, just presented a quality product that they stood behind and Worked with us with any issues we had. So happy with our purchase!
I was looking for a used car and left with a brand new vehicle. Baha helped me find a great car for my family and budget. I appreciate the honesty and personal interest. I will refer everyone I know to the Chevy Exchange. Thank you all.
I was able to take my time looking and visited twice before finally deciding on the Outlander Phev. Both times I was greeted with friendly professionalism. Mike took time to help me understand all the features the car had and when I finally purchased the car a few days later, he went over them with me again to make sure I understood everything and had no questions left to ask. He connected my phone to the car so I can access everything through voice commands before we left and he even connected my daughter's phone so we can access her music. I'm not technically savvy so this was extremely helpful. I probably know more about the functions of this car than I do about my own smartphone thanks to Mike : ) He was incredibly patient and helpful.
It's really stressful for me to make such a large purchase but the staff at Max Madsen Mitsubishi Downers Grove (and the Outlander Phev) made this purchase go much easier. They were a pleasure to work with.
Manny my new sales guy was amazing. He treated my wife and I like family. He made the options available to us so clean and concise. He explained every point and change in the car purchase to us. He left room for asking questions when we needed to do so. Manny was the best!! The finance guy was cool with explaining the details of how and what was needed to be done for the our new vehicle. It was a pleasure to work with him too.
I started with Andrea in the Internet Sales Dept, she got back to me quickly and with a great price. I showed up and worked with Bill Rhodes(2nd time I have purchased a car from him). He is an excellent salesman and you should ask for him. Overall a great and straight forward experience.
Mike made the buying process as quick and easy as possible. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. I'd be happy to work with them again in the future.
