I was born and raised in Chicago and spent my college years
in Orlando, Florida. I met my wife there at a Cubs bar called
"The Friendly Confines." I started in the car business down there
before moving back to the Chicago area, where I now live in
Naperville with my wife and three kids, a 8 year old boy Justin,
a 6 year old girl Layla, and a 2 year old old girl Mia.

I typically don’t write reviews on for anything, let alone for what is considered typically to be painful process - Buying a new car. Let me tell you this was anything but that. I had to take down 3 names, because these 3 gentleman made this a pleasure buying this vehicle .Joe Luque, Brian McMahon, and Angel Santana – These guys were top notch. From the new car deal, to the trade in vehicle I had, and to some aftermarket parts I added, these guys out-performed! Would Highly Recommend to anyone in the market for a new vehicle!

- Matthew S.

I am very pleased with the way they have treated both me and my car!

- Wayne L.

From the first point of contact with the Internet sales and BDC department, to the delivery. Everything was FANTASTIC!

- Amelia S.

I purchased a 2014 Chevy Cruze LT everyone in the place was so nice and helpful. This didn't end when I drove off the lot. Anytime I've had to deal with Phillips Chevrolet it's always been the best customer service. I will buy my next car here.


They work hard at Phillips Chevrolet to take care of customers. They were trained very well in customer service. Many fine employees there. Superior customer service here.

The entire car buying process was so easy! I hadn't bought a new car from a dealership in almost 20 years, and Phillips Chevrolet made the whole process easy and smooth! The internet pre-processing and personal chat was a great way for us to start the process the day before, so when I walked in the next day, my financing was set and ready to go. No need to sit and wait for a loan approval. With a hectic schedule, that made a HUGE difference.

It was quickly clear to me that Chris and his team at Phillips are highly trained and committed to 100% customer satisfaction. I came from California to buy a car from them and they made sure everything was ready for me when I arrived. Not only did they take care of all my transportation to and from the airport but also arranged the delivery transportation for my newly purchased car back to CA. Every person at Phillips with whom I spoke to over the phone came to welcome me when I arrived. Even after the sale, Chris and his team checked back frequently to make sure the car arrived safely and that I was happy, even expediting paperwork to my local DMV. The complete deal I got from Phillips -knowledge of car, customer focused service and even price - was unparalled by any dealer I worked with during the locating of my car. Even after the cost of airline tickets and delivery transportation were included in my decision, the total was better than my own local dealers! I will buy from Phillips and Chris again and I live thousands of miles away! Thanks Chris! Absolutely loving this car!

Had a great experience. Finally driving the truck I wanted and got an excellent price. The staff is thorough and very knowledgeable. Was even offered a great Italian lunch while there! I recommended and the inventory is vast.

- Tom

Great experience. There was no high pressure tactics ( I appreciate that). Courteous, knowledgeable, helpful, and concerned staff. As I moved through each step of the purchase process, I was consistently impressed with the level of professionalism. I will go back to Phillips Chevrolet to purchase our next vehicle. I have told friends & family about our experience here an recommend them as well. I have also work in this business & truly say this a wonderful place to purchase your vehicle from.

- nestortara

I love this place. A lot of cars to pick from and awesome price. No pressure sales. This was my first time there. I will be back for my next car and i have been telling everyone who wants a car to go there.

- spagoz

Amazing experience! Made my first time car buying experience very delightful! I will recommend this dealership to everyone I know looking for a new car! Everyone is super nice and they actually care about your wants and needs!

- amollway

I was very impressed with the professionalism of the whole process of buying our new family vehicle. We would highly recommend Phillips Chevrolet to any of our family or friends!

- Tiffanie

I went to the dealership expecting a long rough and unproductive process in purchasing the car I wanted versus the car most dealers try to sell you to get them off the lot. Before i could get out of my car Marty McKenna was there to greet me and offer me assistance for whatever I came to the dealership for that day. He then took me through a straight-forward, honest, and easy process of purchasing my car. It was the best experience I have ever had buying a car and I felt great afterwards. I felt so good about the experience I posted it on social media while it happened. When I buy my next car and it a Chevy, best believe that I will be heading back here and hoping Marty is there to direct the process.

- HCShowtime

Joe Luque was a great salesman. He respected the fact that I knew what I wanted and how much I wanted to pay. Joe didn't try to upsell me on a vehicle that far exceeded my needs. I'll be coming back in a couple of years for my next truck!

This was one of the most pleasant purchase experiences that I have had outside of my personal/family relationship with another dealer. I left the other dealer, not out of dissatisfaction, but out of simple economics, as a retiree. I am not a difficult purchaser when I know that I have been treated fairly. I do not look for the best price - I look for the best "feeling" that I get from an experience. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, at Phillips was tremendous (friendly, courteous, interested, calm, collected, sincere, all the things that are important to me). But, if I must say a few words about each of them, as I feel may be important to them, it would be this: a. Rami: the true example of what most car buyers want in a sales person (a partner in a deal, not a foe - great product knowledge, efficient, persistent - which I find important, and even admirable, in a sales person, knows his limits with people, I am quite sure - very bright about human nature, I feel); b. Cymone: very thorough, hardworking and precise (she made every one of my email requests an easy thing - she replied quickly and efficiently with reliable data, very friendly); c. Angel: awesome guy (I can easily tell that this guy is a good dad and brings his ethics, his understanding, his entire persona to his workplace - and, that's an admirable trait in a person; d. Mark: prepared, knowledgeable, understanding, efficient (I suffered no "I'll get back to you" or "I'll have to check" or any other blow-off answers to anything - very impressive).

I have been to two other Chevy dealerships. I left both of them unhappy because of the disrespect I received. The second I walked into Phillips, I was greeted and taken care of immediately. Rami was our salesman and he treated me with respect and kindness. Most salesmen haven’t taken me seriously because I am young (23), but Rami was the exact opposite. He worked with me to get different incentives and rebates. He did not pressure me into buying anything, but he did make me feel very comfortable. Rami is an outstanding salesman and person! I have not stopped raving about the service I received from Phillips Chevy and from Rami. I will continue to recommend Rami to all my friends and family. Angel was also very nice!

This past weekend I purchased my very first car from Phillips Chevrolet! With the assistance from one of the coolest salesmen, Mike Herris, I am very very please in the quality of my new car. I was looking for something small in size, affordable and new in model and walked out with a 2012 Chevy Cruze. Mike made sure I was 100% comfortable with my car. My fiancé also purchased a 2014 Camaro through Mike and when I saw the service he received I was so excited to give my business to Phillips Chevrolet. Therefore, I want to thank the Phillips Chevrolet dealership for the great quality of help I received. I would recommend you guys to everyone I know!

I recently went to Phillips Chevrolet to buy a car. My sales person was Jaime Birks, and I couldn't have been happier. She helped me out a lot in the decision process. There was no pressure what so ever, and she was very down to earth. She also worked with me a lot on prices. I strongly suggest visiting her to buy a car. I also worked with Angel Santana, and he was hilarious.

- Kat

My salesman, Justin Nooner, was great! He was very patient to explain and reexplain things to my wife and I. Dan and Angel, from After Market, made this experience stress free with our extra car features!

- David P.

Mike Herris, Angel and Yasin were very friendly and helpful during the buying process of my new 2014 Impala. I would highly recommend Phillips Chevrolet to friends!

- Kathy R.

Jaime Birks our sales representative, Mark our finance adviser and Angel who sold us our undercoat, go way beyond excellence! We will definitely be coming back to Phillips Chevrolet, with the great personal you have! We would like to give a big thank you for all the help on finding the car of our dreams!

- William S.

This is the third time that I have bought a car from Phillips. This time Rami was my salesman and he did an outstanding job! I couldn't be happier with my new purchase! I suggest that if you’re in the market for a new car Phillips Chevy is the place to go!

- Wish

I bought a 2015 Chevy Equinox LT at Phillips. The service was outstanding! There was no pressure or hassle. The staff was great from the phone call with Cecil to coming into the show room to the outstanding job from Joe. He was the greatest sales person and Angel was great as well. Thank you Phillips you guys are the greatest. This is my second Chevy from you guys in three years.

- Brandi

Top notch organization!!! I was shopping online for a couple weeks. I found the car I wanted and researched what I wanted to pay for it. I met Angel, he pulled up the car I wanted, showed me his best price right up front without having to ask and I was able to drive home in a matter of hours. This was by far the best car buying experience I have ever had. It was so good I sent my mother in to see him as well. I will go back to them for all my car needs.
