I'm a BIG car enthusiast, so working at a big Chevy store is
really my passion. I grew up Chevy all the way so it's a natural
fit for me. I have two kids, boys, and hope they have an interest
in cars when they get bigger. I truly enjoy what I do so it makes it
a pleasure to service my customers. My family bleeds Chevy Blue,
it's nice to have that family support! My family thanks all my
customer over the years.

I have purchased numerous cars at Phillips Chevrolet, working with Chris Smith (is awesome) and management I have always been pleased with the experience. I have also recommended many family, friends and clients who have always given me rave reviews for the referral. Being in the automotive business myself, it is nice to deal with people service clients in the the same way my employees are expected. Thanks Guys for the past help and keep up the good work. Sincerely, A happy previous and future customer!

Chris Smith was awesome. I flew in from Charlotte, NC and he was there waiting on me. They went out of their way and treated me with lunch. Price and selection was awesome and staff friendliness was great. Leah and Jackie continued to follow through without being overbearing, it was great. The paperwork took several hours to get me back there, guess that’s what happens when you're that busy though. I highly recommend!

It was quickly clear to me that Chris Smith 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 unappalled 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!

I went to Phillips Chevrolet shopping for a used British-style roadster convertible to enjoy as a toy for the summer. I had narrowed down my list of cars through internet research and headed three hours across the state to look at five cars in the Chicago area. Phillips had the last car on my list - a '05 Mazda Miata. It took most of the day to see the other four cars scattered around the city, and we got to Phillips about an hour before the posted closing time. The car was in outstanding condition - far better than all others seen that day - and the price was very fair. Chris was excellent - very knowledgeable about the car, very professional with negotiations. He did not behave like a stereotypical used car salesman, but acted more like a consultant trying to understand and meet our needs. There was no time pressure, no sales pressure, and no deceptive song-and-dance. My wife and I were about the last ones out of the dealership that night, but we were never made to feel like we were causing anyone to stay late. Chris even recommended a good pizza place where we could grab a bite before taking a long trip home with our new car. Next time we're looking for a car, we'll check Phillips inventory first and save ourselves some time and effort.

Chris was an awesome person to buy a car from. He made the whole process quick and smooth. I highly recommend everyone to go to Chris!

We went to Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and ended up buying a brand, spanking, new 2013 (with only 42 miles on it) Chevrolet Spark. Not the pink one of course because my oldest son would be driving it. But the Denim Blue model and it looks really cool. We had an excellent salesman, Chris Smith. You could not ask for a nicer and more helpful individual. He was not pushy or bothersome at all. Chris knew a ton about the Spark. If only I had more money (it's all tied up in paying college bills), I would buy another car from Chris. My recommendation, if you are looking for a vehicle, stop in at Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and ask for Chris Smith. I know you will definitely have a totally different experience than the typical car buying experience, GUARANTEED!

Chris Smith was honest and worked diligently to get us the best deal. Rafat has been selling us cars for over ten years as well. We recommend them both for their honesty and excellent customer service. They work hard for your repeat business.

I worked with Chris Smith in procuring an Equinox for my daughter and he was an absolute delight to work with. He fought for our desired price point and took his time to explain the workings of the vehicle to my daughter. Chris is a very nice man and I highly recommend him. This was my first purchase with Phillips and I will return when I need another vehicle.

- Morris

Chris Smith was a delight to work with at Phillips Chevrolet! He was very friendly and personable. Chris also appeared to be extremely knowledgeable about the Equinox and was able to answer all my questions. I felt comfortable speaking with him and he was very patient with me and my father. With confidence, I will definitely recommend Chris to friends and family members that are looking to buy! I appreciated the great experience!


I was at Phillips Chevrolet, with my sister and brother in-law, to look at some good used cars and hoping to buy one. My parents had bought a van and a pickup truck from there quite a few years ago and my brother in-law had bought his Malibu from there a couple years ago so I knew Phillips is a dealer I can trust and believe in. The salesman, Chris Smith, was very friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to help us with the 2009 Chevy Cobalt that I was interested in and eventually purchased that same day. Chris explained the 4 year bumper to bumper warranty which I liked and purchased. The price of the car was very reasonable and one I could afford...All in all our overall experience with Phillips Chevrolet was very good. I'll go back there when I need to buy my next car. Thank you for everything!

Chris was a great to work with. There was no pressure just a pleasant experience. We purchase a used cargo van for our business and from beginning to end my wife and I were very pleased. We would recommend both the very professional dealership and salesman Chris to anyone.

Chris was an excellent salesman during the process of the purchase of our new Volt. He did not oversell us during the process. He let the product sell itself. We appreciate not being pressured and just given the facts during the process. As with any large purchase the buyer goes through a whirlwind of emotions and Chris was cool calm and collective during the process. We look forward to a future purchase of our next vehicle with Chris. Thanks Chris!

- Rob and Erica F.

This was my 1st time purchasing a vehicle from Phillips and I was very pleased with my buying experience. My sales rep. Chris Smith was very professional and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Phillips Chevrolet to my family and friends.

- Bob

Chris Smith is very helpful and knowledgeable salesmen. We have dealt with him in the past when we purchased our 2008 Equinox. This is our seventh vehicle purchased from Phillips Chevrolet.

- Parkview

Today I purchased my 2013 Silverado. The 4 guys Chris Smith, Mike Maheras, Harry Mays, and Mark Hawkins made my purchase pleasurable. I got great service with no pressures that you usually get walking in to other dealerships. These guys were easy to work with and very knowledgeable. With their help I was able to walk away a proud owner of the best truck on the road today. I would recommend this dealership to all my friends and strongly recommend they use the guys I did. They were amazing!!

- Brian W.

I went to Phillips Chevrolet looking for a very specific car. Many other dealerships did not know much about it or were unwilling to help me find. Chris Smith was very knowledgeable about the specific model of car I was looking for and went the extra mile to get me the car I wanted. Chris was very friendly and helpful; I would highly recommend Chris Smith to anyone interested in buying a car as he exceeded my expectations.

- TheBus

Chris knows all about Chevy's!! Best customer service rep we have ever been associated with here!! We will be back for another new suburban when we trade this one.

- Grace

I specifically dealt with Chris Smith to buy this car because I had worked with him when I was buying my daughter's 2012 Cruze in August 2012. He is a nice person, very knowledgeable about cars, and very enjoyable to work with. Very easy to close a deal. He will get my business for Phillips the next time I need a car.

- John T.

We had a very good experience dealing with this dealer and the salesman (Chris Smith). He was very helpful and cooperative and it has been a positive experience dealing with both. We experienced a high level of cooperation in working with Philips Chevy and Mr. Smith and we would definitely recommend both of them to friends and relatives. Thanks for a positive experience.

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.

- Dzadzy

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.
