(Customer comments about Evan)

I looked at new Subaru Forrester on line; the Evanston dealership was close and had exactly the vehicle I wanted. I was surprised at the low hassle and the rather mellow mood in the showroom. I asked some questions, looked at the vehicle and talked with my sales rep Evan. We really had a good conversation; not just about the car but about his work at the dealership, the world of customers and emerging car technologies. Actual negotiation was low-key; going on-line first had a lot of advantages. In less than 2 hours I had purchased a new Forrester ( I LOVE it), unpacked my old Forrester, which was crammed with belongings as I'm preparing a move out of the city, repacked everything into the new car, complete with my Chicago city sticker neatly transferred, and drove off the lot. Evan, by the way, offered boxes for my stuff and brought them himself. One day later I realized my garage door opener was still in the old Forrester. Again, Evan legged it himself, combed the lot and found it.
This car purchase was the easiest and nicest of my long car-buying career.

Have purchased 4 cars from Evan and have recommended many friends who all have had a great experience. Evan and staff always make the purchase process easy and a pleasure.

(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.

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!

(Customer comment about Omar)
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.

Always a customer favorite:

Matthew says:  During the routine service Kerry and his team found a bulge in our tire, which could have been life threatening if gone unnoticed. Thank you Kerry for finding and fixing this before it could harm my family. We deeply appreciate the time and thorough work that you and your team put into our Forester. You have helped our move across the country so much by doing so. Thank you!
