Question Chicagoland dealers...

Hey all you Chicagolanders out there!

I'm going to be back in town on business in the beginning of November. I'm trying to root out "the good, bad, and the ugly" on dealerships. I can't stand them to tell you the truth but I want my WRX! I'm going to be staying in the NW burbs Glendale HTS. to be exact. (my brother is being kind enough to let me sleep on his couch! Isn't that nice!) Kind of in the middle so I can go either north or south. Let me know the scoop..

Thanks,
PBandJ

I bought my WRX from Roto in Arlington Heights.. It is on Rand Road. They were very cool.. Stay away from Subaru of Schaumburg (you've probably already read the horror stories from that place)

Thumbs up Roto in Arlington Heights

I just ordered my WRX from Roto. I told them exactly what I wanted and what I was willing to pay. No problem. Went in and wrote up the deal the next day. The guy I dealt with (Rodd Stein) was professional and courteous - didn't try to scam me with extended warranties, etc.
Granted I haven't taken delivery yet, but so far so good.

I bought mine from Charles, but I've spoken to Rod.. He's a little orinary, but that guy is hilarious... He's very passionate about Subaru's.. I was really impressed with their knowledge of not only Subaru's but car's in general.. Believe it or not, it's hard to find salesmen who even know anything about the car's they are selling!! One time I test drove a 2wd Nissan Pathfinder and the salesmen tried to tell me that it was Front wheel drive!!! Pretty insane...

Thumbs up

I didn't like the Chicagoland experience.

I bought my wrx (WR Blue Wagon) from Van Bortel in Victor, NY.
I ordered my car from Patrice Everest after browsing their web site (www.vanbortelsubaru.com). The price was unbeatable.

I flew into Rochester, NY. They picked me up from the airport. My car had 1.6 miles on the clock. Patrice gave me the keys, said look it over, drive it... and 45 minutes later I was on the road back home.

Overall, much cheaper and less hassles than buying here. The only add on was a $40 fee to the state of NY for a transfer permit. Also, the tax to Illinois is only $1250.

The real kicker is they offer free loaners, $9.95 oil changes, and other service bargains! Wish they would move here.

Smile Thanks

Just want to say thanks to all who dropped reply's. I didn't get to do the shoppin that I wanted. Pops fell ill and was in the hospital for most of my stay. He's doin a lot better now so that makes us all happy. I think I just might wait and see what 2003 has to offer. Maybe a Sti Wagon! hehehe
