(Customer comment from Danny about Derek)
I must say my experience with Evanston Subaru was a great one and Derek went out of his way to make sure we got the Satin White Limited BRZ that no other dealers could find and was able to put a reserve on the car over the phone way before the car was at the dealer and when it came in early he called us and had everything ready to go so when we got there it took a little over an hour which was fast to me.
I would recommend Evanston Subaru to anyone looking for a great experience and a great price.

Yesterday I visited Evanston Subaru with my nephew Adam who was considering a new car purchase. After visiting Honda earlier that day we were delighted by the every aspect of Evanston Subaru. Ethan Sparrow was Adam's sales representative. Ethan was very professional and straight forward in his handling of both the purchase of the new car and evaluation of Adam's trade in vehicle. Adam selected the Subaru Impreza 5 door, it fits his lifestyle and budget. The loan process went smoothly as well. I am a Mercedes-Benz owner used to professional sales and service. I'm pleased to say the Evanston Subaru experience was comparable. Meeting Rob Paddor the owner and all the staff made us comfortable with this purchase. Adam is looking forward to a long term relationship with Evanston Subaru.
I visited 4 dealers in 12 hours looking for a used Subaru. We have had 4 in our family and another three between relatives, so I know the product. Not only did evanston Subaru have a nice inventory, but the sales person Ethan Sparrow made the process easy. He is a great listener and heard my needs. Lets face it most sales people try to talk you into a deal. Ethan had no problem letting think things through no pressure. I never feel I get a great deal when I buy anything I just want a fair deal and that is what I got. If you are looking for a new or used car see Ethan Sparrow. The dealership is clean, spacious and has good lighting. Service area is spotless. All of the other folks I dealt with were friendly and polite, I did to want an extended warranty and they will try to upsell, every dealer does. Just listen and say no if you don't want it and these guys did not pressure me at all or change the price. I would recommend them on your list of dealers, I have worked with 5 subi dealers in the Chicago area in purchases or service and these guys sell more in IL than anyone else for a reason. Buying a new or used Subaru go to Ethan Sparrow at Evanston Subaru. Generally I don't make recommendation but warnings, but Ethan is a bright well mannered salesperson worth dealing with.

(Customer comment from Jim about working with Dorsey)
I was very pleased with my service experience this past week. Even though I did not have a scheduled appointment to get a routine servicing of my car, I was in and out in a short amount of time. I was very pleased with the friendly manner of Dorsey and other personnel there. I have been very satisfied with Evanston Subaru in Skokie since purchasing my first Subaru there about a year ago.

After one less than optimal service experience, I now only work with Dorsey, who is wonderful. I always feel confident and comfortable leaving my baby in her hands. The atmosphere is always friendly and welcoming.

Benny was super helpful in working with us to find a used car w/ low mileage. Was able to trade in my old car and purchase a used car earlier today with Benny's help. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about Subaru as a brand and each model individually. Will definitely recommend Benny!

We drove a couple of hours to see a Honda Element at another dealership which was a very disappointing experience, but luckily we called Evanston Subaru before heading home... Omar completely saved the day and we got an excellent Element from him at a fair price. From the moment Omar answered the phone to the moment he gave us our new keys, we knew we were working with a trustworthy, service oriented place. We are so happy with our buying experience and love our Element!
(Customer comment about Omar)
We purchased our new 2013 Subaru Outback here last week and had a fantastic experience with Omar Aziz, the sales person. I usually find these dealership experiences to be stressful, but not this time! Omar was patient and very well informed. He has a very friendly personality and is straightforward which we appreciated. We feel as if we got a fair deal and had a very enjoyable experience making our purchase! I would definitely recommend seeing Omar if you are looking for a new Subaru.
