We could not be happier with our purchase and the service at Chignoli. We worked with Gregg and he was great. He answered our questions whether we contacted him via phone, email or in person. Great local service, which is how we try to shop...Locally! We will continue to buy from Chignoli, this is our third purchase with them.
I just wanted to take a minute to rate my recent experience at Hawk Volkswagen of Joliet!! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. It was a super smooth process from beginning to end.
More specifically I would like to give high praise to my salesman, Lukas Rimas. Not only was he extremely genuine and a gentlemen to boot, but also a true professional!
All in all, I traded in my Mercedes Sedan and walked out with a Certified VW Tiguan. I would say that without Lukas’ relaxed approach and nonexistent pressure to buy, I would not have drove away with my new car. To reaffirm my purchase as well, Lukas went the extra mile a few weeks post the sale... He kept me in the loop every step of the way in relation to my cars 2nd key arriving and a minor service adjustment.
A small gesture that I will remember as I embark with all of my future endeavors with my Tiguan.
Also a shout out to Starr Lack. She made the financing and warranty details super easy/swift!! Truly a #WorkAsOne atmosphere @HawkVWJoliet
I like sitting down at the desk and working with Charlotte and Matt in the service desk. It's more personable that way and they are able to look up my history on their computer and tell me if I have any special deals coming to me. They are both pleasant to work with and they are the reasons why I keep coming back to Joe Rizza Acura to have my service instead of the dealer where I bought my car from. I hate going thru the express. I hate having to stand outside of my car and explaining what I need to have done to my car and signing papers. It's not personable and I found myself juggling my purse and other items I had with me to sign the papers they handed me to sign in order to have my car service.
You’ll be greeted promptly, and everything will seem smooth and easy till you reach the finances part where someone should really shout “game time”...
The financial process was really tense, if not dark and shady. I walked in with my own approved credit from another bank, but they pushed for another application of their own finance department which I agreed to. To my surprise I was approved for a lower rate with but I did not know that till I refused to buy with th rate they quoted me and started walking out. I’m talking about them trying to get me on a 13.5% instead of 5.9% that I ended up buying the car with, and I only did because I really liked the car... one more thing don’t count one the free loaner most of the time, but they will arrange a shuttle service for you...
The service department with Craig & tech Jim spent a lot of time answering questions, comments, and concerns in regards to our new challenger. They were both awesome!! Thanks for having such great people!! Sincerely, Dan Blaha
Debbie always takes excellent care of me and my family. She sold us our last car and was awesome. So when we were looking for another vehicle, of course I came looking for Debbie. She genuinely wants to get you the best deal and does what she can to make it happen. Thank you for making a big purchase enjoyable and easy!
Always greatest buying experience!!! I always feel like I am a family. Mario and Narcis helped me every time! They are the reason I will always buy VW !!! If you need great price, great service and the best buying experince Autobarn Evanston is the way to go! Thank you so much Mario and Narcis!!!
Repeat customer at the Autobarn VW. The staff there will make every effort to earn your business while maintaining a low pressure environment. Very accommodating and certainly competitive regarding pricing and valuation of any vehicle you may wish to trade. The actual business transaction is seamless and efficient, although I wish this could be completed in one step (ie the sales consultant processes the paperwork) as other dealerships now do. Patrick McDonald is fanstastic. He listens, provides answers, and is genuinely interested in making the experience positive. Will definitely consider the Autobarn for my next vehicle purchase again.
Patrick???s approach and honest disposition made our buying experience best in class. He took the time to understand our needs and found options to fit our lifestyle and budget. We feel blessed and will be repeat customers!
Just got done buying my fifth Jetta from Autobarn VW in Evanston. A great dealership with a great salesman. Mario Grbavac is a pleasure to deal with. My second Jetta from Mario. I won???t go anywhere else. The service is also great. Highly recommended.
