    Default Chicago Auto Place Dealer

    Hey fellas. Anyone know or have any feedback on this dealer out of bensenville? For some reason I always hear bad things from these type of small dealerships but have no clue if I can trust them or not. They have a ride Iím looking to get and want to make sure they are legit and trustworthy.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    What are your concerns?
    Just be cautious just as if you were dealing with a Western Ave used car lot.

    Just be cautious whenever you buy a used car, check out the car throughly and obtain YOUR own car fax; don’t rely on one they show you.
    Bring a friend with you. Sometimes others can spot things you may overlook.
    And don’t be like a friend of mine. He purchased a “as is” used car and come nighttime, he found out that the headlights didn’t work.

    I teased him about that one for years.

    I once bought a beater Explorer at night. I didn't really care what it looked like. I went there with a good flashlight, looked over the critical areas, and took it for a solid test drive. It was good enough for my purposes so I bought it. The next morning I died laughing when I saw that the previous owner put clear packing tape over a rust hole and spray painted it so I wouldn't see it at night

    If that's the place I'm thinking of just off Thorndale, then they've changed their name like 4 times in the past 5 years. That by itself seems a little sketchy.

    Yea that’s the place. Haha

    Thanks for the feedback all. I may buy the Carfax just to see what it says but still hesitant. Wish I can find my car at a reputable ford dealer.

    The owner was called out for trying to sell a wrecked car...when the buyer mentioned it, the owner told him to shut his mouth or he'd take him "out back." I've not heard of a single good interaction with this place. However, this is all potentially hearsay as I have not had any personal interaction with this place. I have heard may other negative interactions with this place.
