We believe in low mileage, accident free cars owned by those who took pride in the appearance and upkeep of their vehicle. We run a CarFax before considering a vehicle for purchase. Next we check for current and potential problems. We then have the car safety inspected by an ASE Certified Master Mechanics. Only then do we begin the process of offering up the vehicle for sale. We want to put customers in the right car for them. We know customers want pristine, good looking/stylish and reliable vehicles that they can be proud of. We want you to get into the car every morning and have your vehicle be a source of pride, something you can rely on, something that if you take care of properly it will in turn take care of you. Your vehicle is your lifeline, it takes you to the most important events in your life. Whether it’s a job interview, an important meeting, or a big date we want you to arrive on time, in style, comfortable and safe.

I have to admit that I was apprehensive about buying a used car. But as soon as I walked into Mikes place, i knew that it wouldn't be a typical used car experience. Mike only sells quality used vehicles, and you can tell that he takes pride in that fact. And all the vehicles are stored indoors, which I found very impressive. I was able to get a great truck at a terrific price. The vehicle had incredibly low mileage, and it was in immaculate condition. As a matter of fact, even though I was very happy with the condition of the truck, Mike wouldn't let me take it home until HE was satisfied with it. On top of that, he was very easy to work with - very friendly. Mike takes pride in his business and it shows. I would recommend Great Lakes to anybody. Thanks again Mike!

My experience with Mike at Great Lakes Autosports was outstanding and I'd recommend him to anyone. I'll be honest that as this is not a "traditional" dealership, I wasn't completely sure what to expect when I arrived. But I soon realized that buying a car from Mike is like buying from a family member who loves cars. He has a great shop with impressive cars and he was able to tell me how he got the car I was looking at (from a friend) and how it was maintained. The price was great and he wouldn't even let me take the car before he did some additional brake and other work at his expense. It was clear he wanted it to be perfect before I drove away. When I came in from Chicago to take delivery, he picked me up himself from the Metra station. I didn't end up financing through him or getting the warranty through him but there was nothing close to a hard sell here. When I went to the dealer for my first routine maintenance, they said it was in great shape and recommended nothing. In short: buy your used car here.

If you're in the market for a car, and anywhere even remotely near this dealership, you have to stop in. Mike worked with me for several weeks as I honed in on the car that I wanted to buy. He had the best price in a five-hundred-mile radius, based on my extensive research, and he met all of my requests for information on the car, warranties, financing, and anything else I needed. Next time, I'll know to start my search here.

A truly different type of car buying experience. With never know Mike before the day I purchased, by the first few minutes at his facility he made me feel like I had known him for a long time. Mike's pride of his facility and inventory is very apparent. Would highly recommend for anybody looking for a fair priced pre-driven vehicle.

My husband and I just finished buying a car here and I felt compelled to write a review. The service was that good. We had been shopping around for a used Volvo and saw that they had a few in their inventory. We called ahead and Mike was very friendly and told us to come and see the vehicles even though it was close to closing time. The cars are all tucked away inside a huge garage/warehouse where they are also restoring classic cars. Tons of eye candy. Everything was beautifully maintained and the Volvo we looked at was a head and shoulders above others we had looked at earlier. Seamless process, great prices and it was apparent that they chose high quality vehicles and cared about their customers. Highly recommend.

Man, oh man, oh man, these guys are a hidden gem! They feel like an inner-city showroom when you find your way inside, but once in, you'll notice everything's clean, everything's well-kept, and there's a lot of real gold in here! Not just in terms of selection, but there's rare stuff, too! It got me excited just being there, being among as many cool cars as were present. Mike is exceptionally helpful, he's got a lot of stories about his inventory, which really helps to understand the life these things have been through. I went there to buy a Saab 9-5 Aero, and in just a short bit of time we had me on the road again! Three thousand miles later, the car feels like it's only DONE three thousand miles! So thank you so much to Mike and Great Lakes Autosports, I hope you guys stick around!
