Always get great service here. They are honest and fair. They didn't try and sell me anything I didn't need. Got my oil change and had concerns about my brakes. Instead of trying to sell me all new brakes on my 2016 like the last dealership did they told me the pads needed to just be machined! Saved me major $$$$

Gary and Stuart helped my wife and I buy a brand new car and they were so nice and went through the different options and we really did get the best price for our car here. The color scheme we wanted for our SUV was not in state and we got it shipped no extra cost and did no bump the price on the metallic color either.

After a crash my car was completely

After a crash my car was completely totaled. Being in the market for a good used car I researched Andrew Chevrolet. They really had some great deals, and good financing options, that really sold me on them. I got a great car out of them and heartily recommend them.

I was looking for a good used car

I was looking for a good used car dealership in Milwaukee. After shopping around for a bit I found Andrew Chevrolet. They had a great selection of cars at prices that I could afford without breaking the bank. I strongly recommend you check them out.

In Milwaukee, after I got hit by some

In Milwaukee, after I got hit by some moron who ran a red light, I was needing to get my car repaired. As I had used them before I trusted my car to Andrew Chevrolet. They identified, and fixed, all the damage my car had taken quite fast allowing me to hit the road once again.

I had just turned 18 and had saved up

I had just turned 18 and had saved up for my very first car. I was terrified of getting a lemon that would last me all of 2 days. My parents guided me toward Andrew Chevrolet. The salesperson helped me find a great car that fit my budget and is still running to this day.

The place to service you car

I had a stalling problem with my 2005 Malibu. I took it to a Chevy dealer near my house and they couldn't find the problem but charged me to look at it. Then I went to Andrew Chevy they kept my car over night to help find the problem. It seemed like they really took their time to make sure they got it right. With the parts included it came to less than $200 and my car has been running great ever since. Hats off to the staff at Andrew when I am in the market to replace my car next year I will be sure to check out Andrew!

Service at it's Best

I have had my van repaired by Andrew Chevy's body shop two different times. Both times I felt like the staff treated me like it was their van. Quality of work was excellent I could not even tell where the work was done when it was fixed. Thank you.

Best place to buy a car

I recently picked up my second car from Andrew Chevrolet and I was so easy. I sent for a quote online to a number of Chevy dealers in town and Andrew was quick to reply. Their price was competitive but what set them apart was the service. With other dealers I felt like I was just another quote. Andrew was the only one to be sure I got the exact car I was looking for. I really enjoy my new Cruze.

I disagree!!!

I really do not understand the poor reviews given to Andrew. our family owns 4 vehicles, two of which were purchased there. We currently have all four serviced there regularly and we have never felt as though anyone we dealt with was in any way shady or dishonest. We have has body work done there as well and were very pleased with the results. I have personally met and spoken to Andy Schlesinger on more than one visit and was impressed with what I believe is his desire to provide good service to his customers. I have been driving for 40 years and have been to many Milwaukee area dealerships so I believe I know a thing or two about them. We intend on continuing to patronize the Andrew dealerships and would urge others to do so as well and form your own opinion.

Extremely Poor Service

Usually being ripped off by a dealer's service department wouldn't rate but these guys were really BAD.

Go in for one thing and the multiplier effect there was astounding. ""you've got no time left on these (fill in the blank) and its likely to fail anytime."" pitches were nauseating. Asked them to call the body shop to stop over and give an estimate on a dent and they didn't do it. Asked for my replaced parts and they didn't do it. They did manage to make the air conditioning condenser vanish before I could see the ""leak"" it had. Asked about products that might seal the leak, they had never heard of any. My Jeep's condenser leak was sealed quite effectively for the 5 years I had it by such a product. When in for another problem (mice nesting in the wheel well) they told my wife the suspension was about to fail but when they hit me for $1700 to replace the condenser they never brought it up. Guess they thought they'd covered enough boat payments for that visit already. Drive somewhere else. This place isn't just the usual dealer rip off.

Rip Off Artist

I had went into Andrew Chev. in Dec. of 08 to look at the year end clearance event that they had. During my visit I had talked to a salesperson, but was not able to reach the deal that I was looking for, Upon exiting the store the person from G.M. they tell me was in from Chicago had stoped me and offered to sweeten the deal with a $250.00 food rebate and @$800.00 in gas rebates. It sounded good and we went ahead and purchassed a new truck. Upon registering for the rebates it was learned that you have to redeam your gas receipts every month for a min of $100.00 to receive a $25.00 gas card per month, OK I can deal with that. We sent our first month worth of receipts only to have them returned to us (delivery refused) I called the number (Disconnected) went back on their web site and found an alternate number (Disconnected) Contacted ANDREW Chev. and they acted like they knew nothing about it until I started to request to talk to the manager. Then all of a sudden they gave me another number to call when I got home, upon calling that number I got a recording to visit (Gasilineredemptionresolution) Went there to find out that the rebate company filed for CHAPTER 11 in NOV. of 2008!!! Andrew knew they were luring buyers in with junk rebates. I had went back there to talk to one of the owners only to be told (If the rebates anr not a writen part of your contract then there is nothing we can do) Another words we F___ed you Deal With It!!! They would not even replace the rebate with one that is current rather then bankrupt. Beware of Andrew Chev. The bottom line is we purchassed the truck on Dec. 27, 2008 and the Gasoline rebate company that they were they were offering certs for had alreeady gone bankrupt in Nov. They knew the S--T was no good!!! Just a bunch of BS. Dont Trust ANDREW CHEV.

Buyer beware. Service? Not so much.

I took my car in to Andrew for an estimate for some work. I told them up front not to do any work unless I OK it, that money was tight. One problem was that the car had a slow coolant leak in the heater return pipe. I specifically told them about the pipe, that it had wet corrosion. I also asked for an estimate on a service engine light issue - I told them I suspected the crankshaft position sensor, which it was. To check that all they had to do was plug into the car's computer.



They called me to say it needed the return pipe replaced now, that it was not drivable, and was spraying coolant all over. I said that's not likely unless they put a hole in the pipe, as it wasn't spraying coolant when I brought it in. They said they had not, and it was like that when I brought it in. Trying to cover for themselves? If it were like that, I couldn't have driven the 30 miles to their service dept. Adding insult to injury, they wanted to charge me $633 for parts and labor to replace it. Needless to say I was not pleased.



They also quoted over $500 to replace the crankshaft position sensor (a $133.06 MSRP part they wanted $139.71 for, plus labor.)



After cooling off, I called back and spoke to another service rep - the one "servicing" me was gone for the day - and I again said that it was just a slow leak when I brought it in, I only had to add coolant every few weeks, so unless they put a hole in the pipe it should be drivable. The service rep said "we're not THAT crooked" (direct quote) when I said they must have done something if it was leaking worse. Ignorant of what the service tech did to it for some reason, he told me that if it was drivable when I brought it in it should be drivable now, they wouldn't have made it worse.



I paid their $100 "labor" fee, I guess for plugging in the diag code reader, or maybe for all the hard work blowing a hole in the pipe, & I started driving home. Within a few miles I had to pull over. The engine overheated.



I added coolant to the tank, only to see it pour out of the pipe through a 1/4” or bigger hole. The one they claimed they didn't make.



I called Andrew, spoke with the service mgr on duty, who tried to explain it away. Said he'd talk to the service tech the next day. When I said that wouldn't help now, I was stranded, I got little sympathy. I asked if I could get a loaner if I had it towed back, and he said no, that "Enterprise is closed." They're a multi-line dealership with no loaner cars of their own? Worse, why did I have to ask - why was a loaner never offered?



With no other option, I had it towed to another dealer, who is replacing the blown pipe for about $350, and offered me a loaner without my asking. It seems, for their $633, Andrew wanted to replace the bad pipe PLUS 3 hoses that didn't need replacing, and charge higher than GM list for the parts - over $30 in higher-than-MSRP parts prices, on top of the unnecessary parts and labor. That's overcharging, folks. The 20/20/Dateline undercover report kind of overcharging.



The next day, the service manager told me the service tech, as part of "normal" diagnostic procedures, did a pressure test on the cooling system, which blew the hole in the return pipe. No kidding.



The test was unnecessary. I told them where the leak was when I dropped the car off. A corroded pipe with a slow leak is not likely to hold up under a pressure test. It's an excuse for causing damage they think they can get away with, because they can't get away with shoving a screwdriver through the pipe like "not THAT crooked" mechanics used to do. If you know where the leak is, test it *after* the leaky part is replaced to make sure your connections are tight.



Buyer beware - be sure to tell them up front NOT to pressure test your system if you go in with a slow coolant leak, and ask for a parts/price list before they do any work and check gmpartsdirect.com for the real msrp.

BE CAUTIOUS!!!

I own a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix with about 84,000 miles on it. I bought it used, two years ago, from an older lady.
At that time, I bought an extended warranty through GM that would cover me to about 94,000 miles. So I thought I was all set!!!!! WRONG!!!
About 6 months ago I noticed that my car would sometimes NOT START. It was during the winter so I though it was just the cold weather (since I live in WI). After a few tries (3-4) the car would finally start. I had my battery looked at (by two techs) and they both said it was fine. So a few weeks past and it happened again. My car did not start. Finally after the 3-4 try, it would start. Then it started happening more frequently and I thought I should take it in. About two weeks ago, I was at work, and as I was leaving to go home for the day, my car would not start. GRRRRRRRRR! I had to get it towed to Andrew Chevy to get it fixed. The next day, the tech called me and said he found the problem. I was very happy, but a bit confused at the same time. He told me that it was my after market security system that was installed by the previous owner, that would not make my car start. I thought that was very weird, but I believed him. He told me that he would have to take the old one out and put a new ""GM"" one in. I asked him if that would be covered under my extended warranty, and he said no.
He told me it was going to be $350 for everything. I agreed to it and he began to repair my car.
I got it back later that day, and it seemed fine. It started up just fine and everything.
About 5 days later, I get into my car to run some errands, and wouldn't you know it........ my car WOULD NOT START AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!! The same problem I had before was happening again! I was NOT HAPPY, as I just shelled out $350 to Andrew Chev that ""CLAIMED IT WAS MY SECURITY SYSTEM""!!!!!
I took it back to the dealership and they said they would look at it again. Basically, I am VERY confused. I feel I was ""taken for a ride"" and lied to.

andrew chev auto repair

took my car in for service at andrew chev.. they didn't fix the problem the 1st time even when they replaced 2 hubs and wheel assy. had to go back because the clunking sound was still there and they changed a 3rd hub.... $1200. I don't think that the 2 hubs they replaced were bad, the car did not handle any better until the 3rd hub was replaced.
I asked for the phone number of gm. and they gave me the wrong number.... when I talked to the people at gm and then they talked to the people at andrew, andrew people were not helpful.... now who ever heard of having to replace 3 hubs on a car with 50,000 miles.... something wrong here... I think one should beware of them... service area was not very busy....
