I went along with my sister to help her look for a new car. We went into the dealership not really having any idea of what type of car, color, or price range and Jacob helped us narrow all of that down. He was very patient with us and we could not have had a better first experience in looking for a car.

I went into Phillips to buy a car after selling my old one. I had one day to buy a car and I was very upfront that this needed to be as quick as possible. The staff was very understanding, I had Jacob Porterfield as my salesman and he was very understanding of my situation and made sure I knew what all my options were. I was scared going in to buy a car because I am a woman and I did not have a guy with me and I was afraid I would be talked into things I did not really want or could not afford. The staff all explained to me my options and Jake worked to make sure he could get me the best deal and that I could afford what I was about to buy. I will be sure to come back in the future and ask for him the next time I need to buy a car. Although I had a great experience with Jake the entire staff was wonderful and when I was brought back to Finances the man was very helpful and made sure I knew what I was signing and he made sure I could afford everything I was getting. The entire staff was extremely helpful and I would recommend this dealership to anyone.

Jacob Porterfield was an outstanding sales person who understood everything that I was presenting to him in order to make a new car purchase. He offered suggestions and advise and did not pressure us at all. That was the important part. We left not knowing if we could make the purchase. Jake followed up in a day or so to see if he could be of any assistance. We said no and would contact him if we decided we could. We did and purchased our 2017 Traverse. As senior citizens not all younger people can understand situations and limits people at our age do. It's great to deal with someone like Jake. He is certainly an asset to your dealership. Thank You.

I had Jake as my salesman after coming from another dealership. He was great! The experience I had before didn't compare to everything that Jake did for me. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a great car buying experience.

I dealt with Jake and Mike and couldn't have been happier. They got me not only the truck I wanted but Jake personally made sure that it was there before I was promised. He wasn't pushy, didn't tell me what I needed, and actually asked what I wanted. All in all a fantastic experience, and will definitely be looking not only to go back but to go personally to him for my next vehicle purchases. Thanks again bud.

Jacob Porterfield is such a nice guy! I will certainly return to Phillips in Frankfort just because of him. My overall experience was nothing short of outstanding thanks to him. :)

When you think of world-class customer service you think of Disney not a car dealership, however that's what you'll receive with this place! The staff was friendly and outstanding. Going to buy a car isn't at the top of a car dealerships agenda, but with each visit they focus on the customer and what they can do to have them return and retain their business and name. I was treated as royalty the entire time being there. Yes there was wait and down-time, but it was filled with great conversations and relating with coworkers of Phillips. I would highly recommend anyone to check them out and have them be the first the show their great world-class customer service and share the experience.

- Ekeltonkid

Overall I had a great experience! I got a great deal on the car I wanted with exceptional help from the sales team as well as finance. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to purchase a new or used car! Jake Porterfield was very helpful!

I brought my Traverse in for an oil change. They asked if I was interested in getting an appraisal. After being introduced to Jake Porterfield I sat and visited with this very kind young man. He was never aggressive or pushy to get me to consider buying a new vehicle. He answered all my questions and was so knowledgeable about what he was selling. His personality made me comfortable and his selling skills made me want the new Traverse. Somehow I think if I decided not to buy he would have been just as kind. Thank you for a wonderful experience from everyone. Keep up the good work!

Jake is a very professional young man with a great future in whatever his career choice will be. He has a great way with customers, and my wife and I truly enjoyed working with him.

I am a longtime repeat customer as I have always been treated with great respect and valued as a customer. Recently I visited Phillips Chevrolet to return a leased vehicle and lease a new vehicle. My goal was to lease a step up from my Cruze to a Malibu at a price that I could still afford. I worked with Marty McKenna, sales manager, and Jacob Porterfield, product specialist. They worked with me patiently to accommodate my needs. Wow!! I left the dealership in a Malibu at a lease I could afford! They had me melting in my shoes! Thank you Marty and Jacob as you have once again made me a very happy and satisfied customer!

I met Jake for the first time when I saw my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited online. We bonded immediately over his love of his Jeep Wrangler. I knew I have been considering buying a Jeep after buying my wife a Grand Cherokee last spring. Jake made the transition from owning a RAM 1500 to a Jeep seamless and comfortable. His attention to customer needs and details is highly rated. If you are looking to buy a Jeep or any car for that matter than Jake is your man!

My wife and I purchased our last 3 cars at Phillips and the Sales service is second to none. They treat us like family and our experience is always totally enjoyable. Their knowledge of the product they sell is outstanding, plus where else can you go and laugh so much that you do feel like you’re at a family party. No really! They went out of their way to surprise me with cupcakes and candles and the whole Showroom sang Happy Birthday.

I went into Phillips and traded in my 1992 pickup truck and left a couple hours later with a brand new Silverado 3500! Derek gave me an unbelievable price and more importantly kept me laughing the whole time! Then Lisa had me in and out of the finance office in no time! Her professionalism was great! I think I might buy another car just to come back and hang out with the Phillips Chevy team again!!

Any time I come into the dealership, I am always greeting by name as well as my son. This dealership and everyone there has treated our family so well. Derek Cavato has been an excellent sales man going above and beyond anything that would ever be expected. Angel in aftermarket has treated me fairly and helped me purchase all of the accessories. Haley in service couldn't be more helpful. Phillips is the only place I will ever have my car serviced or purchase new vehicles. I would recommend them to everyone with full confidence they would all be treated fairly.

- Carrie D.

I love my new car! The sales man, Derek Cavoto, was excellent! I was his first sale and you never would have known it. He did a great job and I would buy from him again! I highly recommend Derek to anyone that wants a car!

- Deborah D.

I had one of the best experiences at Phillips. Derek helped me purchase two cars. It felt more like hanging out with a friend and not buying a car. My experience wasn't stressful at all and I didn't feel like I was being pressured to buy. This was the best customer service I have ever had, hands down!! I will be back in the future and Derek will be my go to guy!!

- Dionte

Derek was extremely helpful and made my car buying experience a smooth and easy process!!! I have 2 small children so he was able to make the process quick and kept my children entertained while we waited. A very family friendly environment! I will definitely come back here for our next car.
