Low pressure, high quality cars, competitive prices and pleasant to work with. I can't think of anything more you could ask from a dealer.
Nils was very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. We appreciate the great service! We'll definitely be back when we need our next vehicle. Thanks Nils!
Tim Border was great -- friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and fair. And, JH Barkau made the purchase quick, easy, and straightforward. Pain- and hassle-free! Love my pre-owned Subaru Forester! I definitely recommend JH Barkau & Sons in Cedarville.
Thank you so much! I absolutely love my "new" Jeep! She's a real Honey 🐝!
Tim Border, was assume. He emailed me back and forth for days before I went and test drove the vehicles I was interested in. He helped me pick out the best vehicle that supported what I was looking for in a new ride. He helped me get the car setup and ready to go with all the technical features. Definitely will be recommending him to my family and friends. Thanks again Tim.
Tim was helpful and straightforward with our purchase. I had to do a major portion of communication via email and Tim was great at keeping me updated.
This is our second car purchased with Barkau. As always, great customer service. Thank you!
Tim Border makes it very easy to purchase a car. He's very informed on inventory and makes you feel comfortable during the process. This was the 2nd car I've bought at Cedarville in a year.
Nils once again came through and got us what we were looking for. Was patient and helpful without being pushy.
Barkau's is a nice dealership to purchase a vehicle. I love my new Ford Edge. The salesman are so nice. I had Tim Border. I highly recommend him. Thank you Barkau's.
I had Nils searching for a specific vehicle for me. He found one very similar to what I wanted and sent me a picture. The vehicle was located at the South Street location. My wife and I took it for a test drive and bought it 2 days later. Nils and the staff at Barkau were very helpful and made this purchase an enjoyable experience.
Got exactly the car I was looking for at a better price than I could have ever imagined! Thank you so much!
Every one I talked with was very nice, informative, friendly and never talked down to me. A good experience.
Korey was very helpful, gave great information, and made the whole process very easy and enjoyable!!
Found just what I was looking for! Love the kind people at barkau! Great service! Friendly staff! Best car dealership around!!

Tim listened to my list of needs and desires for a replacement vehicle, and efficiently narrowed down the field to those cars that might be a fit. His knowledge and patience in explaining unfamiliar electronics puts one at ease. With the Barkau family of local dealerships, there's a vehicle for most anyone. And after the sale, there is peace of mind knowing they are accessible and available to answer questions, and service your vehicle as needed. My thanks to Tim Border, Jim Barkau, and all the Barkau family--Congratulations on the 71st Anniversary of "J.H. Barkau & Sons&...
Sure did miss my buddy Jim Mullarkey, but Barkau's didn't disappoint. Nils did a great job. Called in advance and they had the vehicles we were interested in ready and waiting. Definitely the best dealership in the area.
Tim was very welcoming and helpful to me as a first time car owner. Tim was truly the best! He made me feel confident and comfortable buying a car for the first time. He goes above and beyond for his customers and really tries to help as much as he can to make the process easy and smooth. Great service!
Barkau in freeport/cedarville has so many cars to choose from. There is no need to goto any other dealer. Multiple makes and model with cars in every price range. Will difinately be a return customer. Keep up the great job.
Good service. They treated me fairly. Worth the drive to Il. Had a nice drive home with my new vehicle.
I want to share my and my mom's healing article for people suffering from any horrible disease or STD. On June 24th, 2019 God was so kind to us by sending a friend who introduced us to "DR. MOLEMEN HERBS" online. He shared his testimony about how his dad got better from Arthritis after using Molemen Herbs products, we did not doubt it at all because my mother always believed in natural herbs because she was a conservative. We contacted and ordered the products for myself and my mom me. I was suffering from herpes and my mother ...
Friendly...no pressure sales...cars have prices in the windows.. their website is a great tool. Their service center is one of the best
We’ve always had a wonderful experience with our purchases at Barkau and sons. Very happy. Will do all our purchases in the future
They made it easy to get everything done quickly. Needed a delivery vehicle for work and were up and running within a day. Thanks.
We lovd working with Tim! He is knowledgeable and helpful. Will come back again for the next car!
My second time here and the experience was exceptional just like the last time. Friendly, knowledgeable, and great service will keep me coming back. I will recommend this place to everyone looking for a new car.
My son found just what he was looking for. Thanks to Nils and the team for making it happen.
I have purchased several vehicles from Barkau Auto over the years and I have always had the best experience possible with them always .
One of the best dealerships I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! Thank you Tim Border and Barkau! <3
I have had poor experiences with other car dealerships in the past. I went back to Barkau's and they changed the experience for the better. I am beyond happy with my new vehicle from Tim at Barkau's. Highly recommend.
We liked our salesman Nils. He was friendly and not pushy. Nils was very helpful in finding cars that fit our needs and price range. He showed us different models and explained the various options on them. Over the years we have purchased several cars from Barkau and have always been satisfied with our purchases.
Well pleased with Nils and Jim, good truck, but 1 problem it has a clunking sound mainly in town, took to service garage to bring in July 10, would have to leave with loaner car,I don't like that, check it out, fix or order a part then come back, will be there at 8:00 on the 10th. Also do you use spec solution to wash it's really shines, noticed the red traded shines also?
Great staff, easy to work with. If I need another car I will definitely stop by this dealership.
Tim was a godsend! He was very helpful throughout the entire buying process. I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better salesman! He put me and my family in the perfect vehicle! Thank you Tim!
Tim made our purchasing of a newer car for our son a very amazing experience. Tim was very communicative and helpful through everything. I would recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for a new/newer car. He added special little touches that were found the following day that were very surprising. Thank you for the wonderful buying experience for us and our son.
Nils is always so kind and helpful. He truly cares. Thank you for all your help and truly being the best salesman.
From the moment we pulled in the lot Korey and team were beyond helpful and went above to help make buying this vehicle easy especially with twin toddlers in tow.
Tim made the process quick and easy. He added little touches to make us feel at home. He went above and beyond to help, and I would definitely buy from him again.
Tim is very helpful and professional. He walked us throught the whole process. We are very happy with our experience.
Everyone told me that Nils was the best in the game, and they were one hundred percent correct! He let me drive no fewer than seven cars before we settled on my choice and made the financing simple and stress free. I will absolutely be coming back for my next car!
Nills is very thoughtful didn't miss any details,new what I wanted and surprized me. Well satisfied, thanks, tell him you need a raise😎
Car was just as advertised online. Nils knew we were driving 90 minutes to see the car and made sure it was worth the drive for us. Purchase was quick. Very happy customers!
Great service, friendly, great trade in value, went above and beyond to find a car I liked.
We loved the great service we received getting our gently used Jeep Compass. We really thought the rates in today's economy was going to really sting, but it wasn't too bad at all. This is our second from this dealership but our family has also bought many there. I love my new ride and it was fast and professional all the way. Loved the thank you note in the gas compartment from Tim, our great salesman. Thank you!
This dealership made things so easy! Great customer service! I will be a return customer.
Couy and Nils worked well with us and went above and beyond to find the right vehicle for our needs.
Very good people. Will help as much as needed to find something that's good for you. I recommend. Very polite and respectful.
Tim is very helpful and kind when dealing cars. He was not a pushy salesman. His candy dish on his desk was filled with a great variety.
Nils, Adam, and all the guys at Barkau made buying a our truck a great experience. We’ve bought several vehicles from Barkau and keep going back because of the great vehicles and people.
This is a dealership that I have been working with for a long time now.
Down to earth hometown people. Very friendly no pressure. They let the car do the selling.
What a terrific group to work with. Everyone was courteous and did what they said they would do. Very professional and took time to explain things so we could understand and do it ourselves when needed. Very happy with everything.
Everyone was very nice, it felt like home! It made purchasing the car very comfortable!
From the time we arrived met Tim and he then begin to work his magic into getting us into a vehicle. Everything was so professional from start to finish. Chad was amazing going over all the documents well detailed explained. Best car dealership i have ever encountered. All of you at the Cedarville Dealership is AWESOME. Thanks to everyone!
Very polite hardworking and understanding. I'm thankful for Tim and Chad they are awesome.
I had a great visit at Barkau in Cedarville! All the staff were very knowledgeable about the vehicle and other questions pertaining to the purchasing process. Friendly staff! 10/10 recommend visiting Barkau!
Very helpful and Nils took all afternoon to assist us to get a good vehicle for our needs. Love Chief and Chumley!
Kind and friendly environment. Provided us many options. Knew what we were looking for and stayed within our limits
Tim was great to work with! He was accommodating to our needs and time frame to purchase the vehicle. Thanks Tim for all your help!
They had our paperwork ready as requested, as they knew we would have limited time to spend in the facility. We have purchased several vehicles from Nils, and he makes the process easy. We highly recommend him.
The best possible car buying experience. Tim Border is kind, no pressure and happy to assist in any way possible. From sales to the finance department, buying from Barkau was a not only a smooth and transparent process --- I'm also confident in driving away with the best deal on a high quality used car. I drove two hours to get to Barkau and it was well worth the trip.
My girlfriend just bought a 2016 GMC Yukon Denali. From start to finish, it was the most pleasant experience during a car purchase. Everyone made us feel right at home. The car was beautifully detailed and the showroom was immaculate. Our salesman Tim was as good as they get. Extremely knowledgeable and detail oriented. If you're looking for a new or used vehicle I highly recommend J. H. Barkau!
Excellent service! Answered all my questions! Quick loan application process! Job well done! This is my fifth vehicle through the dealership! Excellent people to work with!
Very friendly and knowledgeable, the entire process was very smooth and within not long at all I left with my dream car. Would definitely recommend doing business with!
Tim was very helpful! He was also very knowledgeable & the entire experience was very quick
As always great customer service. Purchased vehicles for the last 30 years. This is a dealer you can trust and rely on.
I was looking for a car for my kids to drive. They had a great selection and made the buying process so easy. This is the best dealerships in the area. If you looking for new or used cars the Barkau dealerships are the only ones you need to go to.
Nils did an awesome job of handling every aspect of my purchase of a recent service truck. He was very thorough on past history of my purchase and was prompt on completion of all the paperwork.I would strongly encourage anyone to give Barkau a chance on your next vehicle purchase.
we have purchased several vehicles from Nils and have always been very pleased! fair trade in and this time as always love te new vehicle. Thank you Nils!!!
We have been purchasing all of our vehicles from Barkau’s for 21 years - love the personal attention, the price and quality of every vehicle we’ve owned! Thank you guys!
Very nice buying experience with J.H. Barqua & Sons today. Fair trade offers and prices. Tim Border and Chad were great to deal with. Definitely recommend.
I generally deal with Jim Mullarkey and have for over 20 yrs. Last vehicle I bought there was a 2013 GMC Terrain with low miles in great shape. Still have it and it's done a fantastic job for us. Jimmy can find a good car for you.
I stressed myself out over buying EXACTLY what I wanted. Tim worked on letting me know immediately when what I wanted came in. Then he worked his magic on selling me the car, flawlessly. It was the easiest experience I've ever had. I have been recommending Tim to everyone I know the last couple of days. Super professional, amazingly nice, and just plain genuine. Fantastic experience!! Thank you so much!!
Tim was great to work with. He wasn't pushy and was able to find us exactly what we were looking for. We called him about a week after we had purchased our truck because a brake light had gone out and he got us in right away so that it could be fixed. We will definitely be recommending him to our family and friends.
Tim at Barkau is great! I got a car in 2019 that was recently totaled, contacted Tim he was a great help and understanding. He explained my situation to the bank and got me in a new car very quick, I appreciate him and will never go to anyone else for a car!! Thanks again Tim 🙂
Dylan was a great salesman that helped me find the perfect truck. The team at barkau in Stockton made sure everything went smoothly. I love my new truck!
They were very kind and helpful in helping me get a car. I wanted one 2 yrs older and I got one 2 yrs newer for around the same price. They were great at helping find something for me and my family. It's much appreciated!! 🙂
Thank you, Tim, for your friendly and knowledgeable service. We enjoy our van and look forward to using it for many years to come. J.H. Barkau and Sons have a great selection and good prices. We'll be back when the time comes to replace our other vehicle.
My over all experience at Barkau was pretty good. Tim was very helpful, and right to the point. I wanted to get in and get out and everyone made it very quick!
I went to this dealership hoping to find a reliable car that was low maintenance, unlike my last car from Fox Lake that was in and out of the shop every month. I was nervous, as this was my first big purchase and I had no idea what type of vehicle I was looking for. Korey Korosec was the sales representative who helped find the perfect car for me. He was very knowledgeable about all the cars at the dealership and once he had an idea of the cars I was interested in, he knew exactly what car was the ...
Korey is amazing we enjoy working with him and always provides excellent customer service . We have bought 6 vehicles in our family from him . We will continue to work with Korey .
Korey is a knowledgeable reliable salesman. We have bought 6 different vehicles from him and will continue to buy from him. He is kind, courteous and always willing to go the extra mile!!
Korey was fantastic, he was well versed with vehicle that we were there to see. Extremely professional and friendly staff across the board. No BS negotiating, it was very straightforward, fair, and didn't press the upsells too hard at signing. Would highly recommend anyone do business with this company, I certainly will be again. I will say they have cats which is a bit weird, I almost tripped over the cat food on the way out. However my experience was soo amazing that by the end, the cats were just some extra fun! Also they have candy everywhere which ...
Staff was so helpful and felt trustworthy. Found me exactly what I was looking for!
Korey was great to work with, I was in a pinch with my car totaled and needing a vehicle for work and he got me in and out in no time. I would recommend Korey and Barkau for all your vehicle needs. Very easy going and great to work with.
We were so happy with our salesman, Tim Border! This is our second vehicle we have bought from him. He is very knowledgeable about what he is selling and very friendly! Thank you Tim and Barkau.
