Chicagoland VW Dealers

Hey Forum,
i am new in here! Looking into buying me a used 06, better a 07 Treg in the Chicagolandarea in the next Month. Guess thats the best because of existing warrantys.
Does anybody has some experience with a good Dealership around here? Not sure yet if i should go with the V6 or V8.

Thanks

CONGRATS!!
Well don't feel bad cuz I went to the one in evanston and they treated me the same way! I don't know if it was becuase I'm a young hispanic dressed in work uniform, or all my tattoos? That's usually what happens to me all over so I'm pretty used to it! I've heard from alot of people who have gone to that carmax and have had a good expierince. Now most importantly, were are the pics of the new ride?

That must be the way Autobarn in Evanston is for everyone. I was in my suit, during a work day, and no one else was on the lot. I spent about ten minutes walking the lot outside and then when into the building to look at the five or six cars inside. Three employees and no one even said hello.

Hey;
after now saving up a lil more i upgradet my Wishlist from a 07 to a 08 Modell now! ...Just think its a better ride and has the Facelift wich i like more!
So i went also to Evanston last week to see what they got out there, after looking through all the Tregs at the net.
After me and my girl stood there for a while and try to figure out where all these Trucks are wich we saw at the net, finally one of the Salesguys came out. He took us to a Warehouse a few Blocks away ans showed us the Trucks. But they dont have the Treg a would like (08 Modell with Airride) so he said no problem we can get any Car you like "we are the biggest VW Dealer in Northamerica" so i gave him all my specs and my dates and till than i am waiting!!!!!!
No Phonecalls no E Mails....nothing!!
Do you guys know some better Dealerships around here? I mean unfortunally most cars i see are all from these Autobarns!!!

Dresden, I have said once I'll say it again The Autobarn in Evanston is the biggest POS in North America, seriously. As you will read on this forum, many I have to that dealership and have had a bad expiereince there. I bought mine from City Volkswagen on Irving Park.Great service and they actually acknowledge you when you walk through the door. Try it out.
