Best car dealership on the Southside of Chicago!!!

by Retired on Jan 17, 2022

I purchased a 2009 Nissan Altima. Zack and Moe are by far the Best I Ever dealt with!! Zack was professional held the car for a week on a handshake like the old days When a man's word in his handshake was good enough! I will be buying my cars from here from now on and would strongly recommend this dealership! The tire sensors went out on the car 2 weeks after I bought it Zack only had to replace 1 the 1 that was broken. Instead Zach replaced all 4 at no charge this is a good man and this dealership is the best I've ever seen I'll be back Zack!!!!

I just got my first car from College Cars a month ago, and couldn’t be more pleased with my first car buying experience. Zach made the car buying process very easy and smooth. Since it was my first time purchasing a vehicle I was looking for a used car, with low mileage, in good condition, and yet something that would fit my budget as a college student, that had only worked a few years previously. This was the perfect place to find a car that fit all those parameters, it truly checked all the boxes for me, as a twenty year old college student. I would highly recommend checking out College Cars, especially if you’re a younger kid looking to get a quality car for a reasonable price.

Very Happy Customer

We purchased a 2002 Toyota Avalon from College Cars Chicago on 6/10/2020 after our other 2002 Toyota Avalon was totaled. Exact year, make, and model both cars were well maintained and taken care of. We were planning on driving the car we had for many more years until the accident. I got on the internet the very next day and more or less stumbled on finding one we purchased from Zack that was in excellent condition. Unfortunately, things can go wrong with any car even if they are well maintained. We experienced the airbag light would not go out and it was determined that the SRS computer had to be replaced. This was not like replacing a lightbulb. Zack stood behind College Cars 30 day 1000 mile warranty and worked with myself and the dealer making the repair as painless as possible. Very professional and customer-oriented. Would definitely return if and when we needed or wanted another vehicle. Also will highly recommend to anyone. We live in Indiana but it was well worth the approximate two-hour drive. Thanks again Zack!

Used vehicle purchase

by Tom Schmidt on Jun 23, 2020

I recently purchased a used vehicle at College Cars and it was the best experience I ever had buying a car. Zack and Matt couldn’t be any more nicer. The friendly atmosphere is such a relief after the cold reception we had at other places. I didn’t think I was going to find a car in my price range and almost gave up until I was directed here. I purchased my car last week and my Niece just got a car from here today. I highly recommend you come see Zack or Matt if you’re interested in buying a car. On a five star rating, these guys go to eleven! Thanks for making my experience there hassle free.

As to Mike from Ventura......Mike , Money talks and BS walks.......you had plenty of time to buy the t-Bird.........I saw it , talked to Zack ( who I was very impressed by ) he told me he was waiting for you but had not heard from you in two days. " I said " hey, Ill send you my AX deposit immediately for 1000.00 and wire transfer the balance the next day. that is exactly what happened. Zack shipped the car with in two days and it traveled 2150 mile in 3 days ( wow).......the car is even better than I thought............color me very , very happy..........could have been you Mike but you were too slow on the draw..........better luck next time..... College Cars Chicago ( Zack ) is a First Class operation that I recommend highly to all............I am 79 and nobodys fool ...." Trust me " Paul Herrick Get my # from Zack and call me if you need anymore info......

Seller cancelled the deal after we had a contract already. The only statement was, that another buyer came in and bought the car. Bad manner. No trustful behaviour.

Hi Mike. You are correct we did send you a contract that you did not reply to for 2 days. Within those two days, a buyer came in and bought the car. We never took a deposit from you or guaranteed the car was being held. It was a rare car that we took on trade and due to the amount of action it was receiving, we did not hold the car for anyone and sold it on a first come first serve basis.

I had a deal with the seller. He even sent me the Bill of sale and the wire instructions. After I signed it back within minor time they told me, they sold it to another buyer who stepped by. This is no trustful behavior. I would not recommend this dealership.

Excellent service. Zack is personable and friendly. I can tell he invests himself into the cars he sells and the people he sells them to. We shopped around at least 5 other dealers and dreaded the experience but college cars was the best hands down. Other dealers had no idea when we mentioned a car on the website and they would search the lot trying to find the car. When we mentioned the car we were interested in at college cars they knew immediately which one. Zack worked with our finance budget and provided options that fit it. Highly recommend!

I live in Cranberry Township, PA and purchased a 2013 Chevy Avalanche with 31k from Zach at College Cars Chicago in May 2018. For those of you who are considering purchasing a vehicle from an out of state dealership, please let me say that I had the same reservations in doing so like you most likely have! Well let me tell you that Zach and College Cars Chicago are unlike any other dealership I have ever dealt with. They are a smaller dealership that has what every large dealership is missing, the attitude and desire to let the customer be the customer and not be bullied into a vehicle with typical sales tactics while providing me with the space and time to examine the truck at my own pace. Zach assured me prior to my arrival that the truck was in tip top shape. He FaceTimed me every panel, every little detail and had unbelievable patience with an out of state perspective buyer! In summary, for those of you who are from out of state, you can buy with confidence and not loose any sleep that he will sell it out from under you or that it is not as he says. For those of you who are local, if he has the vehicle you are looking for, you need to stop wasting time and just get it! As far as the Avalanche I purchased, I drove it back to PA without any issues and am looking forward to driving it for years to come. If you were interested in it and were told it was sold, I appologoze for that but am thankful that Zach stayed true to me and honored our agreement, the same you would want a dealership to do for you if you were in my shoes. Thanks College Cars Chicago!
