Bought my new '08 Versa at Rosen Nissan, Gurnee, IL.
Decent dealership, tried some pretty cheap tricks to sell the car; nothing bad, but as we walked in after the test drive, another salesman yelled out, "hey, you selling that blue Versa?". Obviously staged, it was just a way for them to imply that if we didnt buy it now, it was going to sell to the other couple. getting service there was good as well, they gave us the first 2 scheduled maintenance stops free.
Bought my new '13 Quest from Libertyville Nissan, Libertyville, IL.
The van was already marked down $11k from sticker, so they weren't moving any more on price, but they worked hard to get us payments and term that were agreeable (it was optioned more than we wanted, but the deal was fantastic). salesmen were good, no real tricks were played. Pretty easy going, they allow you a little time to browse on your own before either someone approaches you, or you walk up to the counter and ask for someone. Service there has been the best dealer experience I've ever had. Very thorough, informative, and easy to negotiate parts prices.
Bought my old used '07 Murano at Arlington Nissan, in Arlington Hills, IL.
Part of the Rohrman group, We eventually got a fair deal, but the process was torturous. The salesman played a switcheroo on us... we went there to look at an '05 and '06... the '05's hatch wouldn't close, and he conveniently "couldn't find" the '06, so he pulled out a pristine, loaded, '07 (notice what we ended up with). Of course we liked that one better. Back and forth for hours negotiating price. Service there was good as well. they didn't charge me when I had it in to diagnose a CVT concern that they couldn't pinpoint, and offered to keep it longer to try and duplicate.
