About Our Lake Bluff, IL Mercedes-Benz Dealership

At Knauz Continental Autos, we have been turning our customers into friends since 1934. Our story began 80 years ago, when Karl Knauz created the dealership that would bear his name for generations to come. After opening a gas station in Lake Forest and working as a chauffeur, he never imagined that his modest beginning in the automotive business would evolve into one of the most recognized dealerships in the country. The success of Knauz Continental Autos is built on our strong relationships with the people we serve. Today, we continue to treat each customer with care using "The Golden Rule."

You will feel our deep respect for customers as soon as you walk through our doors. This tradition of service is part of our roots, when Bill Knauz would get to know each of his customers by name. While our expanding size makes this a little harder to do today, we still provide a personal touch that makes each visitor to our dealership feel like a new family friend. In fact, some of our loyal customers are the grandchildren of those who have bought cars from Knauz dealerships in the past.

The Knauz family also believes in the importance of being a beacon in the community; that's why we've spent so much time, money, and effort supporting causes we believe in. We want to be an integral part of our neighborhood and not just another car dealership. This is our way of giving back to the community that has supported us over the years.

We hope you will stop by soon to see why the Knauz family is a trusted leader in the automotive industry. Our dedicated employees pride themselves on being honest, direct, and hassle-free. This is why our customer satisfaction is always among the top-ranked nationwide, and our reputation as a good corporate citizen within the community still stands. Now, as we begin our 83rd year, we are humbled by our history and eternally grateful for the thousands of customers that have chosen us. We are proud to continue addressing each of your needs with the utmost respect, care and attention to detail. Knauz Continental Autos is here to serve you.
