I just wanted to compliment Joel Jabaay for making the experience of buying a truck we saw on their website a pleasure. In the last few years it's always been such a struggle picking something out make a deal and getting out of the dealership in a timely manner we drove approximately 4 hours to their dealership in Indiana and Joel made it all worthwhile I wasn't sure what to expect but very happy when we returned home I just got off the phone with my daughter who lives in Florida they are looking for a car and she said each dealership they had visited holds them hostage by taking their driver's license it is work to get them back we did not experience any of that at Jabaay Motors thank you for the pleasant experience and Rick loves his truck.

Hi Drew, I just wanted to drop you a note thanking you for a fantastic car buying experience. I have looked at a lot of used cars in my time but I have never seen such a large selection of low mileage, well cared for cars all in one location. As soon as we walked into the showroom, we knew we would be driving one away that day. The car is fantastic, no surprises. I have never experienced such a low pressure sales experience. We will definitely be back for our next car. Thanks again for the great experience.

Born and raised on Woodward Avenue decades before "The Dream Cruise" was even imagined, autos have been my life. From the first phone call to paper signing with Joel has been a truly class experience. Our new 2004 Thunderbird (pristine+low miles=perfect) is such a pleasure to drive. I have been pining for a Retro Bird since their inception. This silver stallion just leaped out of your inventory as a must have. Being an out of state buyer all my concerns were handled smoothly with a professional quality that is lost in American salesmanship. We want to send our personal thanks to you, Joel, and your business for your honest and forth-right fair dealing.

Hey Joel, just a note to confirm how happy and impressed Gail and I are with you and our purchase experience. I took the car in yesterday for an oil change and had the car checked over. Nice to learn that the tires, brakes, fluids, belts, and all important systems are in practically new condition. The car drives like a dream and I am absolutely ecstatic with it. Your efforts to deliver this car to me in such great shape as well as making the experience convenient and enjoyable are greatly appreciated as well. You absolutely went out of your way to accommodate us and most assuredly made one of the major items on my "Bucket List" become a dream come true. My sincerest thanks! You are the best!

Joel, We just wanted to send you a quick note complimenting you on the professional way in which you conducted yourself during our recent purchase of a 2011 Corvette Grand Sport from Jabaay Motors. You were honest about the condition of the car and its history. We felt your prices were fair and the quality of the product was high, making the purchase a good value. The title arrived when you said it would and we had no issues registering the car at our Secretary of State's office. Since our purchase, we have entered the car in a couple Corvette shows and rally events, winning several trophies. We have also taken the car to Bloomington Gold. The Grand Sport is everything we had hoped it would be and then some. We are also pleased that you found a good home for our trade in. We won't hesitate to contact you the next time we are in the market for a quality used automobile.
Sincerely, Kim - 2011 Corvette Grand Sport 3LT
Hey Joel, This is Wayne and Paula from McComb, KS. My wife bought the 1966 Mustang for my birthday sight unseen. It turned out to be 3 times more car than we expected. We put the car in a car show and placed 9th. We just wanted to say thanks for the car being everything you said it was. We also wanted to thank you for the way you handled the financial transaction. One more thing, thanks for watching out for my purchase by not letting the car leave the lot with a transporter that did not meet your expectations and held the car until we located another transporter.

I had a pleasurable buying experience. The large showroom was easily accessible just off hwy 30 in Merrillville, In. It is loaded with fabulous classic automobiles. Joel was very knowledgeable and helpful in the buying process and all the paper work. The only negative was the fact that I wasn't able to buy more cars that day. The selection was overwhelming. I will definitely look to Jabaay Motorsports when I'm ready to add to my collection. Thank you Joel.

Joel and Paul of Jabaay Motors helped make my purchase of a 1999 Porsche Carerra a smooth and enjoyable experience. Using the internet, I had searched out the car I had always wanted, a 911 Porsche, with the exact color and options that I wanted... and at a price that I could afford!!! Jabaay Motors had the car on their website with 35 photos, showing every detail of the car. I called them in Lansing Illinois from my home in Naples Florida and got to know Joel and Paul over the course of a week or so. I was especially impressed with the 3 generation family dealership as well as their tremendous website listing 95 other special used vehicles in the same manner. Joel then helped me with having the car inspected by a Porsche mechanic to double check the excellent condition of the Porsche. Then, he and Paul managed all the paperwork and process of selling the car to me in Florida with incredible smoothness and not one glitch in the paperwork challenge of an out of state purchase. Jabaay then arranged to ship the car to me in Florida using a shipper that they use regularly. The car arrived on time and in a "just detailed" condition. I couldn't have had a better experience purchasing a car. Actually, it was the best buying car buying experience that I've ever had. And, as you can guess, I'm loving every minute of driving my dream car (even if it's older, low mileage, and within my wife's $ tolerance,,,). Thanks, Joel and Paul!!!

Just a note of appreciation for your help in making my purchase of the 2002 TBird such a pleasure. I still can't believe it happened. It's also comforting to know if we have any questions or concerns in the future, you'll be there for us. Be assured that our experience with Jabaay Motors, thanks to you Joel, will be shared with friends, family, and those that stop to admire my dream car.

Paul and Joel,
It was so nice to meet you and your staff last Friday. Picking up my BMW X5 was painless, thanks to you two. It is a flawless car. I will be back one day soon for my daughter's first car! I love a family owned business. You are first class people!

I had been a long time customer or a local Infiniti dealership and upon wanting to trade in my 2006 Infiniti G35 coupe, I saw they had a 2005 Honda S2000 on their lot with only 14k on the odometer. Naturally I went there to talk business. After getting most of the bargaining worked out, I told them I would be back to drop off a deposit. Within 24 hours they sold the car out from underneath me. Needless to say, I was a very unhappy customer of theirs (I've been with them for about 3-4 years and have brought them countless referrals and business as well). I ended up searching around online and as I am very skeptical of dealerships in general - narrowed it down to 3. One of them being Jabaay Motors. I found out their main showroom was actually about an hour and a half away from me, an dI decided last minute to drive out there to check out a 2004 Honda S2000 with 7300 miles on the odometer. Upon gettin there I was greeted before I even walked inside by Joel. Extremely friendly, laid back, and just down to earth guy. He gave me a reasonable offer on my trade-in and I looked over the Honda S2000, which I can say was honestly in MINT condition just like all of their cars on the showroom floor is very will taken care of with extremely low mileage. I can tell Joel and his family / business take great pride and care with all of their vehicles. We worked out some numbers and upon agreeance, I was the new proud owner of a bright yellow Honda S2000. My case and point is, Joel and Paul (who works at the Lansing location) are great guys. They know their business inside and out and are more than capable of providing outstanding customer service. I would and will continue to recommend anyone looking to buy a lightly used car in great condition to talek to Joel and Paul. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Joel and Paul, you guys have earned a lifelong customer in a world / business where bs and shadyness is prevalent. I am truly glad to see you guys are a diamond in the rough. God Bless.

I just wanted to write and say thank you to Paul. I just recently bought my first car, a 2011 Jeep Wrangler. He was great to deal with! Everyone was friendly and made me feel comfortable. The process was quick and they gave me a great deal!

After wondering and researching what my next used car should/would be, it came down to a very specific model (Altima coupe with all the trimmings). This narrowed my search down to a car but none were in my city and the ones I found in the neighboring states were being bought the day I was calling about them. I found Jabaay online at cars.com and they had a real beauty with very low miles at a great price.
Mama didn't raise no fool so I did as much background on them as I could and deferred to my auto sales friend who works for a Nissan dealership. Everything came in as clean as can be expected for a used dealer (haters gonna hate). I spoke with Paul on the phone and told him I was interested and wanting to drive up there to look at it that Saturday. He was very laid back, cooperative (we even discussed delivery options), but what shocked me most was his willingness to take it to a mechaninc for me to do a used vehicle inspection before I even showed up. After the inspection, I called the mechanic and he gave it the green light except that it most likely needed a new battery. Paul got me a battery at dealer price without charging me for installation, was great about knocking a few bucks off the price, and wrapping everything up the day I arrived to look at it. Back in St. Louis, I took it to my friend's Nissan dealership service department (to cross the T's and dot the I's) and they verified that everything was in fact good.
As I am a strong online researcher I wanted to wait to post this review til after the Nissan service guys got a look at it and I had driven it for a couple weeks. Jabaay and Paul provided a great experience to waht many out of state buyers would refer to as risky business (this did all go down in less than 3 days!). I'd highly recommend them and their vehicles. Thanks guys!
One relieved and happy new used owner.

I just want to let you know how much we appreciate the service that Jabaay Motors provided us. We were extremely pleased with the professionalism of Mr. Paul Sutkowski and his quick and efficent response time to all of our many questions. We love our Jetta Sportwagen and would recommend your dealership to anyone! A plus service! Thanks again!

Just wanted to let you know how much we LOVE LOVE LOVE our Land Rover. We surprised the kids at school and they were thrilled! We saw the Land Rover on the Jabaay website, took it for a test drive and HAD to have it! Joel moved a mountain or two and in less than an hour from our arrival we were on our way home in our new car! The courteous, respectful, friendly, knowledgable and efficient staff is bar none. We will never purchase a vehicle from any dealer but Jabaay. We were quite impressed with the condition of their inventory and how they make you feel so welcome. Paul and Joel returned our phone call in less than 10 minutes and gave us all the information needed to make aquisition of our vehicle as seamless as possible. We highly recommend Jabaay Motors, they are by far the best dealership we have ever purchased from! Did I mention we LOVE LOVE LOVE our Land Rover?!! Thank you Joel, Paul, and team for everything and for helping make our dream a reality. We will see you soon for our soon to be graduate's car!

I recently purchased a 2006 Cadillac XLR V from Joel Jabaay through Autotrader.com. Joel handled the sale professionally and efficiently and responded to all my questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend Jabaay Motors and Joel Jabaay. I love my new acquisition. Thank you Joel for all your effort.
Bob - Tiverton, RI - 2006 Cadillac XLR V
Thank you for your time! I really enjoyed how easy it was to work with Joel and Paul over the phone. I never felt pushed or like I was just another customer. Your facility is so nice with all those SUPER nice cars and someday I will be back to drive one of those off the lot and not a minivan! My husband said he was very impressed and the next time we are looking for a vehicle we will call and ask you first. Again, thank you for your time. I will definately be recommending you to everyone.

We recently purchased an 08 Corvette from Joel on ebay after searching for 3 months. The extensive album of photos was so helpful in our decision. After driving 1800 miles, seeing the corvette in person and then driving it home, it has exceeded our expectations. We thank Joel for the speedy paperwork and professional handling of our purchase. We get compliments every day. Thank you Joel.

Recently I had occasion to buy an exceptional car from Jabaay Motors on eBay. Initially I was a little reluctant to buy a car on eBay but the communications, service, and support provided by Joel Jabaay truly exceeded my expectancies. The car is pristine (as advertised) and I am absolutely delighted with the exchange. Best Regards,

Jabaay Motors is the best place to go for a used vehicle. I had a wonderful experience purchasing my Buick Enclave with Jabaay Motors. Being more than 800 miles away from the location of the vehicle can be difficult, but with the help of my salesman, Joel Jabaay, I recieved my paperwork overnight and purchased the car of my dreams. I also asked that they deliver it to me....the whole process took a little over a week or two and every aspect of my experience was done professionally. I just wanted to drop a note of appreciation and thanks to Jabaay Motors and to Joel Jabaay for an accurate, honest, professional purchasing experience. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Jabaay Motors to anyone interested in purchasing a vehicle. This family owned business for 56 years have proven themselves a premier dealership.
Marlene - Charlottesville, VA - 2008 Buick Envlace CXL
Thank you to Jabaay Motors for we are now the proud owners of a '96 Impala SS. The car is in excellent condition, just as described. Our purchase was a long distance one, as we are in SC. Nonetheless, our purchase was just as smooth of a purchase as any would have been locally, and even more so. In addition to a wonderful car, Jabaay Motors provided outstanding customer service. They were quick to answer all questions and returned all calls expeditiously, forwarded all documentation expressly as needed, and treated all post-sell documentation and communication as important as the pre-sell documentation and communication. In other words, we were just as important to them after the sell, as we were before the sell. We were also very impressed with the shipping. We expected the vehicle to be delivered in about 7-10 days, but were surprised to get the call only two days later that our vehicle was on the way (only an hour away). The transaction with Jabaay Motors was much better than expected from beginning to end. Thank you again!

I recently purchased a 2005 Corvette from Jabaay Motors. I found the car on eBay and contacted Joel, the owner of Jabaay Motors about it. Joel was extremely helpful and very honest about the condition of the car. The price of the vehicle was very fair and I wanted to purchase it immediately, however, I have never purchase a vehicle online and was nervous about doing so. I live about ten hours away from Jabaay Motors so I hired checkmyride.com and arranged for the car to be inspected. Joel met the inspectory the Friday after Thanksgiving so I could get the results ASAP. The report was identical to Joel's description of the car. I purchased the car and Joel arranged to have it shipped to me for a very good rate. The car showed up at my door in perfect condition and I love it. Based on my experience with Joel, I would highly recommend purchasing your next car through Jabaay Motors.

It was a pleasure working with you. The Camaro is what you said it was. Buying a car online is risky, you take the word of the person you are working with, but Jabaay Motors and you Paul, are very honest. Thank you very much!
Bob - Erie, PA - 1998 Chevy Camaro Z28
I recently purchased a 2001 Camaro Z28 from Jabaay Motors. I'd like to share my experience. First, if your looking to purchase a used vehicle, this is definately a great choice. Joel Jabaay is an honest, caring, and concerning salesman / owner. Unlike most used car places, these guys truely thrive to get a great car and the right car for you. Buying a car online is not something oldschool people are familiar with and difficult confiding in an out of state dealer. Look no more, this place is awesome with a great selection of low mile and pristine vehicles. Maybe that explains why this family run business survived over half a century making people happy hassle free. I love my car. It is pristine, just as Joel said. I'd like to thank Joel and all the staff at Jabaay Motors for their time, patience, and sincere honesty. You'll always have my business Jabaay Motors and you guys are great! Thanks.
