Service department is great to work with!

Bernie Krowczyk put together a great deal for our daughter who lives 500 miles away. We drove the new car to her and brought her trade in back. We love Bernie. Gregg Decman, Lance Armstrong and Mike Schoenberg helped along the way.

- Fordguy, DEALERRATER

We are so grateful for Bernie's expertise in finding the perfect vehicle for our daughter that was a great deal within her budget. She loves it and we keep coming back to buy our cars from Bernie. He's the best.

- Fordgirl, DEALERRATER

He was so patient with me and was very helpful. I wanted to buy from him but they did not have the SUV I wanted. He made the whole experience painless. He never made me feel pressured. I felt like part of the family. If you are looking to buy from Anderson Rock River Block this is the guy!

- RWMHawk, DEALERRATER

Bernie and the team are always helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. They make the car buying experience fun, easy, and so convenient. So happy with my new 2019 Ford Escape!

- Leah B, DEALERRATER

Bernie made this the easiest and most personable car buying experience I've had in many years of auto purchases. He asked what I was looking for in a vehicle and what my budget was and we went from there, showing me options in makes and models then finding the one that was right. He was polite,...

Bernie Krowczyk sold us our third Mustang. He is very knowledgeable and listens to what car we would like to have. He picked us up and took us to the dealership and back home again. He goes out of his way to make sure we are satisfied with our purchase. Mike Schoenberg did a fantastic job of...

- Mustang 2015, DEALERRATER

Mitch was very good to work with, knew his cars but was not overbearing like so many car salesmen. Purchased a Fusion S with no pressure to upgrade to an SE or SEL.

- 2base, DEALERRATER

Bernie is always so friendly and helpful! what's whatever questions I had, he would find the answer. Matthew deering and service is awesome as well as all the service staff.

- Shane, DEALERRATER

It's hard to purchase a new vehicle. You wonder if this is the right thing to do and if you an afford it. The entire ordeal is stressful. However, all these doubts and frustrations were removed by the our current purchase from Bernie Krowczyk. His humor reduces the stress and his knowledge of the...

- j&mfordcar, DEALERRATER

Mitch was an excellent person to work with. He is very respectful and keeps his word. This was the best experience by far we have had when buying a car. Normally we dread going into a dealership to buy a car. Not anymore. We will always come back to Mitch. On a scale of 1-10 to rate him, we give...

- Jones7469, DEALERRATER

- Nanny, DEALERRATER

This was my second time purchasing a vehicle through Mitch at Anderson Rock River Block and it was so easy and painless. We went into the dealership (with our 2 little ones) and he helped us order our vehicle. He let us know all of what to expect. We were out of the dealership within an hour. As...

- Paigeb, DEALERRATER

We have been shopping around for a new Ford F150. We specifically came to the Rock River Block to see Mitch. He was able to get EXACTLY what we didn't know we were looking. We came looking for the bare minimum of trucks. He showed us a stunning show model, more than we thought we were in the market...

- F150driver, DEALERRATER

Professional, honest, no games, clear detailed itemized pricing of the car and all fees associated with the purchase. Mitch Edler is a wonderful salesperson. Todd Berg is a wonderful manager. They made the process quick and easy. Mitch gave a detailed tutorial on the car. He answered all our...

- maria1#, DEALERRATER

There is a BIG difference between dealership services offered in Chicago vs. a non-city dealership. I have dual heating/AC, and one side of the car is stuck on heat, the other on AC. However, the car is still hot. The first time this happened, I told the dealership where I bought the car about my...

- R. Lisa Matthews, DEALERRATER

We have been working with Brian Haselhorst and Don Murray for the repairs to our vehicle. Parts have been on backorder for several weeks and they have provided us with a great loaner throughout this process. Great communication!

- JV, DEALERRATER

Doug is great at what he does, purchased a gt1 stinger. Doug had the car transferred from indy without me having to put down any cash. I'm glad that there are car dealers that still have faith in their customers and provide excellent customer service.

Melissa went out of her way to make sure I all the info needed to make my decision. She knew I was driving over 2 hours away and made me feel at home with NO PRESSURE if purchasing. She understood this vehicle we were texting and emailing back and forth wasn’t my first choice. But she got me all...

- Bgdaddy2, DEALERRATER

“Real people pricing” is a term they use. In looking for cars, we liked the Kia line. In researching, we checked out Rock River Kia but also tried out a few other Kia dealerships that had cars listed online for a cheaper price than Rock River Kia. After driving around visiting those places, we...

Had just decided it was time to hand down a car and get a new one. Went into to look, ask questions, and maybe go for a test drive. Ended up buying a new truck! Couldn't believe the salesman Joseph's knowledge, expertise, friendliness, competence and most importantly, attention to detail. Never had...
