Knauz Autopark - Conveniently Located at Routes 41 & 176 Lake Bluff, IL
Knauz Automotive: Turning customers into friends since 1934
has been over 80 years since Karl Knauz, the father of the current
chairman, Bill Knauz, created the dealership that would bear his name
for generations to come. Karl Knauz, after years of being a chauffeur,
opened a gas station in Lake Forest. This modest beginning would turn
into one of the most recognized dealerships in the country. The current
franchises, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, MINI, Land Rover, and Hyundai have
put their trust in the Knauz family. While Bill Knauz has turned over
the running of the company to his son-in-law William Madden, most days
he'll still stop by the office, unless the weather is conducive for his
second passion in life... flying.
Throughout the years, the Knauz family has established itself as a leader in the automobile industry. Our employees pride themselves on outstanding service and quality sales. Our customer satisfaction is always among the top ranked nationwide, receiving numerous awards. In the earlier days, Bill Knauz remembers getting to know all of the customers by name. That's a little harder to do today, he said, but they do see a lot of repeat business including some of the grandchildren of past customers. We are humbled by our history, and eternally grateful for all the thousands of customers that have allowed us to earn their business.
