Upon my arrival, I was turned over to the hands of James Major. Mr. Major kept things honest and understood my situation and created a balance concerning trading in my HHR (2011) and getting a new vehicle in which I could afford. He brought out the Equinox LT (fully loaded) and I simply fell in love with "Blue Velvet Ivy"! I also want to thank Henry King for explaining the Protection Services. I really appreciate Tom Kernagis' patience concerning my down payment and enrolling me in the GAP insurance. I still can't believe I have a brand new car right now. It's a dream that I love being in at this moment. THANK YOU!

I keep a car for years, so when my old reliable vehicle finally needed to be replaced, I started my search at Phillips. My sales associate, James Major, told me he hoped my search would begin and end there and it did. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The hype and pressure I had dreaded was totally absent. I am so excited about my 2015 Metallic Silver Malibu. I will definitely recommend the team at Phillips for both sales and service.

I just bought a 2014 Sonic L at Phillips Chevrolet. I would recommend Joe Snaidauf. He was informative, friendly, not pushy- just what you want in a car salesman. Walter Fields was able to work with me to get to a number we could both be happy with. When I made my car down payment I met with James Major, who immediately put me at ease. He took me for another test drive and told me about more of the features of the car. He affirmed that I had made the right decision. It was truly a group effort.

James Major helped me find just what I was looking for at Phillips Chevy. He put together a fantastic deal and made sure to include the extras. I highly recommend stopping in to see him if you are in the market for a new or used car of any make/model.

The minute I walked in I felt right at home. I explained to James Major exactly what I wanted and where I would like my payments to be and he began working immediately. Everyone that worked here that I came in contact with was very nice and welcomed me back as I recently purchased a 2014 Malibu. James Major is a great salesman and I would recommend him to any of my family or friends who needs a car.

My wife and I came in with doubt hopes and wishes because of credit , history, and down payment issues. We were greeted immediately with a warm welcome and a confident hand shake saying, “Don't worry we'll make something happen.” To make a long story short we both drove away in 2 brand new cars thanks to Mr. James Major and his finance team. We are very grateful and also satisfied!

The Phillips Chevrolet Family made me feel like I was the most important person in the dealership. They were very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The process was smooth sailing from the time Cristina answered my phone call and told me someone will be waiting when I arrived. Barth Eastman made buying my new 2015 Equinox as easy as ordering a pizza. I said what I wanted and he DELIVERED. Dennis Miller and James Major did the finishing touches and made my smile a mile long. To seal the deal Michael Maheras told time out of his day to greet and thank me. I have never brought a car from a place that made me this comfortable and the process so fast and easy. I recommend the Phillips Chevrolet Family to anyone that buying a car. Also I must mention that Barth showed so much hospitality, he not only brought me and my family lunch during the short wait, he DELIVERED it!!! Thank you all

We purchased our 2014 Chevrolet Impala and we were serviced by James Major. He was very professional, knowledge, patient, friendly and most importantly he listened and did not hassle us. We will definitely refer our family and friends to James. He took time to go over everything and met our affordable price range. He was honest, nice and had a nice smile. Our service was seamless. Thank you James Major from Phillips Chevrolet in Lansing.

James Major was the best car sales representative from the start to finish. I would recommend James to everyone looking to buy a new or used car.

I bought my car 2 weeks ago and basically I had a very satisfied experience with this dealer and thanks to the help of salesman James Major, I could finish the whole purchase. He spent all day helping me with all of the details without any impatience. He also delivered my car for me, and I appreciate that so much! The car also has perfect quality and till now I still have not found anything wrong with it. They are professional and worthy to be trusted. Overall, I recommend this dealer, and I am sure you will not regret it!

I brought a couple of my friends in to see James at different times. We told him exactly what we wanted and he began working wasting no time. He was not there to beat around the bush and took care of business right away. He was honest and a pleasure to work with. I brought my coworker/friend into Phillips because she needed to purchase a car as her scooter broke down and she refused to put more money into the scooter to get fixed. We saw James when we got there and she told him what she had been searching online, what her price range was, and what she wanted her car payment to be. I must say within the hour she was a very happy person and got what she wanted, a 2010 Honda Fit!! James is an excellent sales person who was honest to my friend and me. As long as he remains at Phillips I will bring him customers!!!! My best friend needed a new car as she and her father are trying to reestablish credit and we again went to James and he was able to get the job done. There were some minor bumps that we hit in the process as the car that she originally wanted was out of the price range. James offered a couple different options and about an hour later she settled with a 2014 Chevy Camaro!!!!! I would recommend James to anyone of my friends or family that is ready to purchase a car. I would recommend Phillips to anyone as well because every time I come no matter why I am there I feel right at home. The service, hospitality and overall experience was GREAT!!!

I just bought a 2010 Honda Fit from Phillips Chevy and the service was impeccable! James made the sale easy, affordable, and even brought this car from the Frankfort location fast for me to test drive. Henry new just what extras my car needed to stay looking great and helped me schedule a time to bring my car in for installment. Tom was swift with financing and thorough with the paperwork. I would definitely recommend this team to anyone looking to purchase a new or used car!

Phillips is a great dealership! I was a young guy, with no credit, looking for someone to get me a great deal and take a chance with me. From the minute I pulled up James was there to help me in every way possible, from keeping me interested, to great customer service and just building a relationship with me. Overall James did everything I wanted/needed plus more! Today was one of the best days in a long time! I appreciate Phillips Chevy in Lansing and most of all I give the biggest shout out to James Major. I will be keeping in contact with him and sending everyone I know looking for a new car, to him!

I had an excellent experience at this dealership! From my awesome sales consultant Mr. James Major, to the Dealer Manager, and everyone in between! I've already recommended this dealership to friends and family! I'm very satisified and happy that I chose my Chevy Sonic!

I absolutely loved this place. The customer service and my salesman (James Major) was priceless. I am so appreciative of what they were able to do for me. They rate 5's with me because of their pleasant attitudes and presentational style. They appeared to be a family working together. This was fantastic place to purchase a 2014 Chevy Malibu for the year 2014. God bless you all.

Recently I purchased a 2014 Malibu from Phillips Chevrolet in Lansing, IL. This is the first car I have ever purchased on my own. I couldn't have asked for a more helpful staff to help calm my nerves with this purchase! The salesperson, James Major, answered any questions I had about the car. He also took the time to walk me through all of the features of the car before I left the lot! The general manager, Mike Darge, also helped to answer many of the questions I had in terms of trading in a car and purchasing another. He made sure that I was comfortable with the decision I was making, as well as understanding the entire process. I was very appreciative of the patience and help I received at Phillips Chevrolet! I recommend that those in the market for a new car go visit these great guys!

- Jay

Everyone that I dealt with at the dealership made me feel welcome and made each decision that I made feel wonderful. It was a great experience through and through. I would definitely recommend this dealership to anyone wanting a vehicle :)

- Heather W.

Phillips Chevrolet and all of its employees left me completely satisfied with the purchase of my vehicle. When I needed a question answered, they were good at getting me answers even if it meant finding a manager to help me understand. I will recommend Phillips to my family and friends and will return when I am ready for a new vehicle.
