JOSHUA A HURLIMAN - 2016 Nissan Altima

Forest City Motors was an absolute joy to buy a car from!!! Dan Phillips is honest and gave us a great deal on this 2016 Altima!! I will be recommending this dealership to all my friends and family. They only have good qualities vehicles!!! Thanks Forest City Motors for a wonderful car buying experience!!!

Katheinne Paz - 2018 Nissan Pathfinder

This is the 2nd vehicle that I purchase through Forest City, love their great customer service, great prices, quick service and great quality vehicles! Definitely would recommend!


I cannot Thank Danny enough, He was very faithful, we purchased the vehicle, Toyota Sienna 2012 online because we live in Minnesota and it was affordable/cheaper at Forest City Motor Company compared to all the dealers in Minnesota and nationwide. We had done all online and walk-ins search and none was affordable to us except this one. But we gave it a shot/a try but we are happy with the results and the process.

The features in this vehicle are great and newest but above all the price was incredibly affordable. A car with this features and lowest mileage goes for more than what we bought at forest city motor company.
We had done enough search, research but none in the state is like Forest City motor Company!

We did all the transactions online and communicated via emails and he never disappointed us at all. Actually I thought he stayed on the phone or right on the computer screen all the time because he replied my emails right away and faithfully...he was very honest!. I am for sure believe and accept the motto "No hassle" Is really working in this company.

He even kept our car indoor after the bank finalized the paperwork and when we went to pick up the car, it was indoor, no snow , very warm, very clean, very ready and Danny himself was very friendly, He gave us a very warm welcome, answered all our questions. In general, everything went great 100%...No complaints!, No hassle!, its worth a drive!

I will recommend anybody who wants to buy a a car to Forest City Motor Company in Rockford Illinois


Dan and Pat are very professional and helpful. They will help you find the vehicle you need, not try and just sell you a car. Highly recommended if you want a great car at a great price!!


Sharp and reliable pre-owned vehicles. Owners were helpful and not pushy. Have purchased 3 cars from them and have friends who also purchased cars from them. Highly recommend.


Really good and high quality cars. Customer service was excellent and they even helped with getting financing. The whole buying process was quick and easy, without any up-sales on additional products. I will definitely be buying all of my future cars from here.


They are very nice people to deal with, straight shooters and I like that and they stand behind their warranty. I would diffidently buy from them again.


Straight up dealership. No games. Price as advertised. What a pleasant surprise. Got a lovely car.

Roxann - 2009 FORD FOCUS

What a fantastic car buying experience from beginning to end! Never been treated with more respect in such a friendly place. The car was impeccable inside & out! The service fantastic. Everyone dreads car buying; not here. Truly a nice easy, even enjoyable experience

zipora - 2012 TOYOTA SIENNA

Danny was very helpful. He was very kind too. He replied my emails ASAP. I felt like he was sitting next to the computer or was having his phone right on his hands. I trusted him even before I saw the car just because he honestly answered all my questions ASAP. Am picking my car today and am hopeful to find it clean as he promised me. Thanks you Danny! & thank you forest city motors!

Thank you Zipora
It was so nice to meet you and Thomas . Thank you for the trust that you would drive 6 hours to buy a van sight unseen . I know you will enjoy your van for many years to come. Thank you so much for your business.


Pat and Danny are wonderful to work with. They found the perfect 2016 Jeep Wrangler for our daughter. It's beautiful. Great price and good trade in on her old car. They really hunted for this one and we appreciate all the time they put into finding this gem. We will be calling them this spring to find a new car for me. Thank you Pat and Danny.


BEST PLACE IN ROCKFORD...HANDS DOWN! Went looking for a new used car. Did hours of research online for the best possible price. Figured out which car I wanted and immediately looked at Forest City Motors website. They had what I wanted and my search was over. I knew I didn't have to search any more. After buying from there before, I was confident that they had the best price and would give me an honest and great trade in value for my car that I had purchased there. I have bought many cars in my 50 years of driving and always hate the purchasing game and always feeling that I could have done better, but Forest City Motors has a totally different experience. I like walking in the door, having no pressure and feel good when I drive off the lot with my new used car. Trust now days is hard to come by, but I trust them 100%. Need a used car, call them and feel good again about a car dealer ship. Helpful?


Bought a 2012 Altima in November 2013 and a 2013 Altima in July 2015. Both cars were low mileage and showroom fresh. Pat and Dan make the buying experience painless and fun. Their service department is top notch and repairs are reasonably priced. I highly recommend this business to anyone looking for a quality vehicle.

Jason Roach - 2013 Chevy Equinox

Absolutely great experience. I've been looking for the right car for weeks, and I finally found it at Forest City Motors. I was very happy with the entire process, it was easy and pleasant, which is refreshing considering some of the dealerships I've dealt with in the past. They were very fair with my trade in, and gave me a good value on my old beater truck. Thanks again, we love the car!


Bought from here after some of the larger dealerships led me on about their prices. Wish I would have come here first. Honest and very fair prices. Got a '13 Impreza for $15650 out the door, the big dealers were asking $19k+ for the same vehicle. Great dealer, who will treat you right. And best thing was; I was in and out in about 30 minutes. Highly recommended.

Nicole L - 2012 BMW 350IX

We drove 14 hours from NY to IL to purchase a car from Forest City Motors Co. and it was worth the trip. This was the best car purchasing experience we have ever had. Received a fair amount on our trade-in and purchased a great car from them. Dan was very helpful & pleasant throughout the entire process. Communication & Customer Service was excellent from start to finish. We have no complaints!!!! This was our first purchase with them, but not the last. We will definitely be back. You won't be disappointed!!!

Ethan Helms - 15 Buick Enclave

I got an EXTREMELY fair amount on my trade in and a VERY good price on the car I bought (which I love). very honest and friendly dealership. This will definitely be my first dealership I work with for my next purchase.

Zacory Windom - 12 MAZDA CX-7

Very pleasant experience. Extremely quick and painless. Stopped at four other dealerships before hand. Glad I didn't settle!!! Will be getting all future cars from here.

Joe J - 2006 Nissan Altima

I purchased a Nissan Altima from Dan and I can tell you without a doubt, if you want to get a new or used car from a No Hassle, honest person, Dan is the guy, can't say enough good things about him. Thanks again Dan!!!

Kevin - 2015 Nissan Pathfinder

5 out of 5 stars - Dan was the best. He responded quickly to my e-mail and was willing to work with us. After the wife took the car for a test drive completing the paper work for the sale was fast and painless unlike other dealerships which takes hours. One of the best dealerships. Great people and great experience. Go and see Dan if you are looking for a car.


I'd like to give a Huge Shout out... "Thank You" to my brother Pat Hess and his dealership Forest City Motor Company, in Rockford, for the Ford Escape I bought last week. .. not to mention the Super deals your company provides to your customers!! Nice cars for Nice people for sure.

Joe Jann - 09 Nissan Altima

I just recently completed the purchase of 2 cars for 2 of my kids at Forest City Motors and I couldn't be happier. We had gone around town and spoke with some of the larger auto dealers and got a very bad taste in our mouth about how they were so pushy and how they tried to tack on so many extra charges. We couldn't get away from those people fast enough. Then we came to Forest City Motors and boy what a difference. Dan and Pat at Forest City were the exact opposite. I truly felt that they were trying their hardest to do right by me. We worked with Dan and he took the time to speak directly to both my kids and helped educate them on the whole business of buying a car. Both my kids had high praise for Dan, he made them feel very comfortable, showed them actual prices for their trade-in's from across the country and gave them both a very fair deal both in trade-in value and the price for their new cars. We will definitely be going back for future purchases. Joe J.

Samir Benosnab - 2007 Toyota Matrix

I purchased a Toyota Matrix from them and I have to say that it was the best buying experience I had in years! The staff is knowledgeable and trustworthy, they don't try to force your hand and only present your options. When it was time to sign the papers I realized that I forgot my checkbook. They accepted my credit card and even split the 1% usage fee with me! Overall, a highly commendable business and one I look forward to buying from long term.

Douglas Shumaker - 07 Nissan Maxima

I have purchased six cars over the years from Forest City Motors. It is the easiest, most comfortable car buying experience. Professional, friendly people make the difference. Quality vehicles, good service, fair prices. Try them once - you'll refer your friends

Jason Cunningham - 10 Nissan Altima

Great customer service and friendly atmosphere. I do not know where to begin... My first car buying experience was amazing. Very helpful and understanding. I had a serious breakdown a week after buying my car (just to clear things up, it was not Forest City Motors fault. It was unexpected) and I was in the neighborhood. So I dropped in and long behold they were working on their day off. I addressed my concern and with no questions asked they fixed my car. They refused to let me leave without fixing it and took parts from another car so I could drive mine. Amazing people! Huge fan! Sending anyone I know looking to buy a car your way. Two thumbs up! Here's a picture of my new baby! Thank you FCM!


My husband and I were very pleased with our experience. Not only was the car far less in price than others we had checked out locally in the same make, model, and year. But it also was far less than the Kelly Blue Book price!!! The whole experience was very smooth, no pressure whatsoever, and completely Frankie l feasible. We couldn't be more happy. The next time we are looking for a car, this would be the first place we would look

Phyllis Hogberg - 13 Nissa Rogue

I had been looking for a used Nissan Rogue for over a year. I found one on their lot that had 8K miles on it and it was $3000.00 cheaper than another Rogue I had looked at the day before that had 55K on it and was 4 years older. From the time I walked in they were friendly and not pushy. They gave me a great deal on my car and the next day I was driving the car I wanted and felt good about the deal. If you are looking for a used car, give them a chance.

Brant Hulsebus - 2009 GMC Acadia

Pat and Dan have been great. We had a surprise of twins less than a year after getting a pick up truck and Pat was able to buy truck back and find me a family vechile. Highly recommend.

A Google User - 09 BMW 335XI

We were totally happy with our experience. No pressure and no haggle pricing, everything was straight forward. They even found a bank with a significantly lower rate than what we had found. It's nearly been a year and the vehicle has proven to be reliable. We've had a few friends stop by and wall away ad satisfied as us.

KayJay H. - 2012 Chevy Volt

This was such a pleasant experience! I got a great car at a good price with a fair trade-in value. All of that without any crazy haggling, pressure, or surprise fees. Pat is knowledgeable, respectful, and straight-forward. It didn't take all day, either. I usually feel exhausted and defeated by the time I leave the dealership with my car, but not this time. I actually got to enjoy the ride home in my new VW! If you are looking for a used car, I would recommend checking this dealership out. I know it will be the first place I look the next time I am in the market for a car.

Brant Hulsebus - 2008 GMC Yukon Denali

Pat and Dan are great. Pat found me a pick up truck and less than 6 months later I had surprise twins. Pat helped me sell the truck and buy a suburban. We get all our service done there, prices for service are great and Byron does a great job explaining what is going on. I have bought 4 cars from Forest City Motors and I Highly suggest stopping by and seeing them before you buy elsewhere.

Google User - 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 X Drive

This place really is a little gem of a car dealership. Their small size enables them focus on bringing in extremely nice cars at great prices while still providing excellent customer service. Dan was extremely helpful throughout the process, from finding the right car for me to getting the best financing. Next time I'm in the market for a car, this will be my first stop!

A Google User - 2012 Honda Accord

They cared for me and making sure that I get a car that will not empty my pocket book. I came in looking at one particular car and Dan and even the maintenance guys helped me in my decision to get a different car that they had with fewer miles and that cost less than the one I wanted. A great place to buy a car!

Polo Il - 2012 July 18

Very friendly, down to earth. Best experience in buying a vehicle ever. A+

Dan from Loves Park - 2014 November 2

The staff didn't hassle me while I was looking at their inventory. They let me take the vehicle I was interested in to my mechanic to look it over. One year later, I couldn't be happier with the purchase

Robert Jacobson - 2012 Chevy Impala

Pat and Dan are awesome! I have bought 3 cars from them and they have always been very helpful. My friend was looking for a Blazer, but they didn't have one, so they went and found one for him! The next 2 cars he bought, he went to them.

Jon & Renee - July 2 2014

Dan was awesome, great experience, will buy my next car there, I would recommend to everyone

Russell R Rauch - 2013 Kia Soul

Danny was great he was to the point efficient and made this a great buying experience I would highly recommend this dealership and I am really enjoying my 2013 Kia Soul

Wolverine Fan From Rockford IL - March 9 2013

They were so friendly and made you feel just like you were at home. No trying to talk uou into a bunch of stuff. They explained your options and accepted your decision. Definitely recommend to everyone that we know, family and friends. Keep up the great job.

2009 Lexus RX350 - May 21 2012

We purchased a very clean Lexus RX 350 from forest City Motors on 3/28/12. We are now 45+ days and 1500+ miles into our ownership experience, and are very pleased with the vehicle.

Rob Blue - 05 Infiniti G35x

Dan and Pat were fantastic to work with. The car I purchased ('05 G35x) was as described, and in almost brand-new condition (beyond my personal standards). New tires were installed (nice Bridgestones), the ASE certified mechanic on staff changed the AC compressor belt, installed a fresh air filter, changed the wiper blades, oil and oil filter, resurfaced the front rotors, and essentially reconditioned anything that may have been an annoyance or issue with this car. You can buy from Forest City with confidence!! Dan and Pat are incredibly great guys. HIGHLY recommend, and I look forward to buying my next car from them!

Excellent to work with - April 20 2011

We have now bought 3 cars from Danny, and Pat. They are excellent to deal with. We have so much trust in them that our most recent car was bought sight unseen. Tell them what you want, and they will find it for you at a fair price, and in excellent condition. They make a car purchase fun!
