Hear What Our Customers Have to Say

"Went above and beyond to meet our needs"

I went in looking to trade in for a used car but I only had a vague idea of what I wanted. Roger was extremely helpful and patient with me. I ended up getting a 2014 ford flex that is absolutely amazing. Roger went above and beyond to meet our needs. He was super friendly and genuinely cares for his customers. I highly recommend him for your next car purchase.

"Very Professional!"

We came to Schmimmer to purchase a 2018 Ford F-250. The sales team (Don, Todd and Jim) was fantastic. They are professional and polite. They had all paperwork done before we got there and was done quickly. As for the service department they are equally awesome. They care and are compassionate  I would recommend the sales and service  to all my friends and family. Thank you guys you were great.

"Great Service!"

Excellent service from pleasant and responsive staff.  Tarryn and Jeff did an amazing job answering my questions and supporting detailed requests surrounding a remote purchase.

"Saved me money!"

Brad came out to jump start my car on a Saturday afternoon when I came out of restaurant to pick up my take out and my car wouldn't start!! What excellent customer service that was!!! Saved me alot of time and money!! Great job Brad!!

"Worth the Drive!"

Well worth the 40 minute drive we made! Randy was our salesman and he was straightforward, honest and fair. Truly had a great car buying experience. He answered all our questions, was patient while we discussed different ideas and to top it off, we had our 2 year old with us and he and the other employees working that day, we're great with her too. Hopefully we don't need another car for a while! but we will definitely check with Schimmer when we do!

"Wonderful Dealership and Car Service Department"

"Experience exceeded all of my expectations"

After searching the Chicagoland Area trying to find a deal on a 2016 Ford Explorer Sport, I decided to expand my search and called Schimmer Ford. John King made the purchase a breeze. They located the exact model, with all the features I was looking for within 2 days. From the time I walked into the dealership they had me in on the road headed back to chicago in about an hour. I highly recommend the trip out to Peru Il to look for a Ford. The Price and the over all car buying Experience exceeded all of my expectations.

"Great Job"

We had a great experience at your dealership. Jaime B. was wonderful to work with. From following up on the first email to getting us our new SUV in the price range we needed. If she didn't know an answer to one of our questions she immediately found out for us. Thank you Dan and Patti

"Sales staff listened"

Purchased a 2016 Santa Fe Sport as a first time Hyundai owner. Love love the vehicle. Told sales staff what we preferred in bells and whistles and where we wanted payments. Sales staff actually listened and didn't oversell. We ended up just where we wanted to be. Very pleased with the buying process. Did I say we love our Hyundai ?!

"Quick Service"

Brought my Santa Fe in for an oil change and tire rotation; service staff are friendly and helpful. Would be nice if a quick car wash was included with the service like the other dealership I sometimes go to.

"Would recommend them to anyone"

I've bought my last 4 trucks from Schimmer's and would recommend them to anyone. John King is my go to guy and he is top shelf in all aspects of professionalism and personal attention... he takes the time to make you feel comfortable in all aspects of your purchase.

"5 Stars"

I came in to the dealership not knowing really what I wanted and asked about leasing a vehicle. Pat not only walked me through the process of leasing a vehicle, but helped me to decide the best vehicle for my needs. He, of course, went through all the differences in the new vehicle that were different from my current vehicle before I left the lot with my brand new Hyundai Elantra. This is the second vehicle on my own with 3 other vehicle with my husband that Pat has helped with. He's a top notch salesman!

"Ease of purchasing a new car. No pressure."

Purchased a beautiful 2015 Lincoln MKX. John King, our salesman was wonderful. He programmed all our electronics which made it so simple for us and explained how to do it. The financial process was simple and pleasant with the paperwork all ready and explained so well. We will certainly buy from Schimmer again and recommend them to our family and friends.

"They are a great bunch of guys"

We just had the best service from Raul Diaz and Mike Parent. They helped get us into a used 2013 F150. They were very pleasant to work with and very knowledgeable. Raul worked with us to locate the Ford Pickup Truck we wanted. It was at their Peru Lot. Raul went to pick it up and checked it over ahead of time for us he was fantastic to work with and found exactly what we wanted in very short time. Mike went out of his way to get us a good finance rate and a few other extras we did not even think about. All in all they are a great bunch of guys to work with and we will be going back in the future. Thank you Raul and Mike. LOVE LOVE LOVE the truck ;-)
