Barkau of Freeport is an excellent choice for first time buyers and people with disabilities! Shawn was great at helping me find the perfect vehicle that drives beautiful and the right lender without multiple inquiries to my credit and an affordable monthly payment. I would recommend working with Shawn at Barkau of Freeport to anyone. Shawn even had my new car delivered to me in Verona, WI without extra cost because I was not able to get down to Freeport. Barkau CDJR really helped me to get the show back on the road.

Every time we need anything done with our Chrysler Pacifica, we take it into Barkau CDJR! Typically it's only a quick fix or an oil change, but we have had our larger warranty issues, but thankfully, Marcy, their service writer always tries to keep on top of the game to keep us happy. She either goes out of the way to get us a loaner and at times even brings the loaner out to the house when we don't have time to get it into town!

I would strongly recommend this dealership. I had a great sales experience and didn’t feel like I was being pressured to buy something, which I think is rare nowadays. We purchased a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee and it’s been a great vehicle so far. Employees were nice and everything was nice and clean. Highly recommend.

No pressure to try to get me to buy but worked with me to get the vehicle I wanted at a very competitive price. He answered my questions whether I contacted him by phone, email, text or in person in real time. I never waited more than a few minutes for an answer.

Bought a 2500 Ram from Shawn upstanding salesman, professional, easy to work with and pulled no games. Drove the truck home over 600 miles back to NY. And the following day got a call from Shawn to make sure everything went well.. Great people from the GM to Rett who completed the sale and paperwork. Would tell anyone if you want a good dealership to deal with call Shawn "man of his word"

I know he is not going to sell me anything that doesn’t meet my standards and if there is a problem… he’s on it. I can count on him to take care of my family as well.

Barkau is great! We have purchased a number of cars from Barkau over the years, mostly used vehicles but now our new Jeep, and have always had great service from them. All their staff are personable, helpful, and pleasant. (Special shout out to Pat Gillespie.) Questions are answered promptly and courteously, and if they don't have an immediate answer, they will find out and let you know the answer. We always feel welcome when we walk through their doors.

My husband bought a new Pacifica October 2021. He was impressed with the ease of purchasing the vehicle. I found a used Pacifica this last July (22) and had a great experience in purchasing it. They were friendly and made the purchase go through with such efficiency. They even gave me a great price to trade in my vehicle. I had a hitch put on my van and was very satisfied and impressed with the service department, also. This is the place to go to buy new or purchase a used vehicle. We are two very satisfied customers and will surely recommend ...

I had a flat tire on my Lincoln and did not think anyone would have a tire in stock at 4 o'clock on a Friday. We called the service department and they had one in stock and we were told come in and they would mount it for us. We were greeted with a smile and never felt like we were an inconvenience for coming in so late in the day. The tire got mounted quickly and they installed it back on my car so we would not have to do it ourselves. The best part was my Ford dealer ...

I went in here not expecting to even be approved due to being 26 and having absolutely no credit, but Shawn H. found a way to make it happen! He actually got me into my dream car. I will say that Shawn was a bit cold and kind of rude during the process though. I also understand that he's only human and he could have just been having a bad day, so I'm not terribly upset about it, but would advise to try to be a little more kind or personable to your clients. But he did get me ...
