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, courteous and offered none of the usual BS I've come to expect from dealerships. Mike in finance sealed the deal in no time again, making sure I was comfortable with all aspects of the deal, Truly a pleasure dealing with them both! Nice to walk out of a dealer knowing I was treated fairly and with respect.

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 explaining our financing on the Mustang. He was able to get us a low interest rate.

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 Ford product is unmatched. Gregg Decman was our finance man. He was excellent also. He conducted our deal with respect and courtesy. He explained our process step by step. Even though this is not our first purchase he took the time as we went through every detail and answered every question. Thank you. John and Mary Lynde

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 him a 20! You will never find a better sales person than Mitch. He is bar far the best in Rockford!

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 soon as the vehicle arrived, I received a text from Mitch letting me know it had arrived. He had all the paperwork ready as soon as we arrived to pick it up. We had to fill out some other information and we were out the door again within an hour! Mitch has kept in touch making sure that everything is going well and has asked multiple times if we have any questions on our new vehicle. We will continue to purchase our vehicles with Mitch at Anderson Rock River Block.

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 for. Mitch worked his magic and got us into the truck of my husband's dreams. We will be looking to trade in another car in the next year or so and guess who we will be visiting: Yep Mitch!

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 questions and he made it clear that he would be available to us, in the future, if we had any other issues. In a few simple words... SIMPLY AMAZING. I would highly recommend both Mitch , Todd, and the dealership. F.Y.I. I contacted MANY dealerships in my car buying quest. Out of 9 dealerships I found a total of 2 who were willing to be honest and upfront on the costs. Rock River gave me the best service and price. If you're wondering.... I'm not a personal friend or family member of either person. I'm just a customer looking for the best price and service. Go with Mitch Edler, in sales, you wont be disappointed.
