Andy Bizub from Midwest Performance Cars in Chicago is also a native of Chicago. His first career was 25 years as a commodity trader. He entered the professional auto industry in 2014 by acquiring a failing shop in downtown Chicago that he was a customer of and started a turnaround. Andy now has two locations. He bought his first car at age 19, a 1972 Triumph Spitfire, which was the start of his gas, oil, and automobile obsession. Listen to Andy’s previous episodes HERE.

Key Talking Points

  • There is a misperception that the new car dealer knows the cars better than the independent.
  • He works hard to break that perspective with his customers every day.
  • We do our customers a disservice if we are not communicating our abilities with our customers.
  • His position to his customer: Wouldn’t you want your car to be viewed by a shop/technician that see all kinds of problems across many different platforms?
  • Andy believes that the breadth of knowledge and deeper wealth of experience makes the independent the smarter choice for vehicle repairs.
  • We must spread this story.
  • The reasons he knows he is the better choice. Their quality of work, customer service attitude, transparency, the training and experience that we bring to bear in servicing and repairing customer cars. We are vehicle experts.
  • We are not here to sell cars, we are here to keep your car on the road for the best value.
  • He believes his 3 years 100,000-mile warranty goes above and beyond the dealer program.

  • A special thanks to Andy Bizub for sharing his passion – For The Record.
