My wife and I needed a new car and Jim helped us find the right one. He listened to our needs and what options we were looking for, the amount we were looking to spend and helped us narrow down the list of potential vehicles to the ones we liked the most. He was friendly, helpful and very informative. We would definitely recommend Philips Chevrolet to everyone, and Jim Rio especially, as the sales person to talk to. He, in my opinion, is one of the best Sales people I have ever dealt with.

Recently went back to trade in my 2012 Sonic for a 2015 Trax. The mere fact I went back says it all. This place greets and handles you with full attention. Jim Rio worked a great deal with me which took me home driving a sweet new ride. He was very receptive to my likes and dislikes, and most of all my priorities. The rest of the staff was equally attentive and comical, which are traits that ease your mind off and make you feel relaxed. What I am most impressed with is the continuous line of communication. Days after the sale, the guys at Phillips give solid help and answer all of my questions, assuring you made the right choice. Kudos to their team!

Jim Rio was very nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. I was looking for a used car. We usually always go to Phillips Chevy and the service was great. Jim walked us through everything and made the whole process smooth as could be. Could not be any happier with my car and the service I experienced there. GREAT PLACE!!!

My experience at Phillips was awesome, they listened to what I wanted and that's what I got. They did not try to pressure or over sell me. I have gotten one car from them, sent 2 other people who also purchased vehicles from them, who were also very pleased with their experience at the dealership. I am once again here looking for a second vehicle. Special thanks to Jim Rio!!

I worked with Chuck initially and he was great, but had to come back later with my pregnant wife after exploring the options. I brought her in on short notice on a Saturday afternoon and ended up working with Jim Rio. Both of these guys were great to work with and made the experience positive. Jim did a great job helping my wife and I get into something that worked for us. We eventually bought a 2012 Chevy Traverse after driving both new and used options. Jim and Chuck gained my trust and you could tell that they were just trying to make the situation work for me. Even though Chuck didn't make the sale, he helped me get the plates on my new car and set up On Star by walking me through the first call. I'd recommend either of these guys to anyone looking for a car that would like to work something out that's fair and reasonable. They're good people to buy a car from.

I walked into Phillips Chevrolet on 9/27/2014 looking to simply test drive the 2013 Subaru BRZ. I called beforehand to make sure the car was there. The customer service department was AMAZING and so kind. Upon my arrival, they were very prompt in assisting us. Shortly after, Jim Rio came to the front desk and introduced himself to my boyfriend and me. I have to say the entire dealership was so friendly. Within minutes I was behind the wheel of the BRZ. Jim was a great help and by far the nicest sales man I have ever met. He didn't push me to purchase the car right away. Jim gave me all the time I needed when it came to making my decision. Being only 20 years old, a girl like me can be very indecisive. I then met with some upper management and they as well gave me all the time I needed when it came to the price of the vehicle. In the midst of us talking a deal out, another potential customer arrived interested in the car I was very close to purchasing. The dealership and its employees, in my eyes, did the right thing and allowed me to take my time in making a decision before even considering making a deal with the other customer. I have been at the dealership for over 3 hours at this point. I am truly amazed at how phenomenal each employee from this dealership is. I recommend this dealership and Jim Rio to everyone and anyone.

Jim was very friendly and treated me very fair. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a new or used car in the future.

This was our first experience with this dealership and it could not have been better. I am sorry I do not remember the names of everyone we had contact with, but everyone was very friendly, helpful, and very good at their job. We were very impressed with the dealership and everyone associated with it. They even followed up with us after our purchase to make sure we were happy with the car and that everything was going well!

It was great working with our salesperson, Jim Rio. He made buying our 2014 Equinox very quick and painless, and was willing to work hard every step of the way. Jim really took the time to explain the differences in vehicles, and really made sure we got the car we were looking for. Thank you again to Jim Rio, and Phillips Chevrolet of Frankfort, for making this a wonderful car buying experience.

I went in with some issues, and Mr. Rio went out of his way to be professional, knowledgeable, and just plain wonderful. I look forward to purchasing many more cars from Mr. Rio, and sending my friends to Phillips Chevrolet.

Jim Rio and Joe Hamdan made my first car purchase an excellent experience. They were very friendly and professional and explained everything so that I understood it. They worked everything out so that it was perfect for me - from the car, to its price, and the time I made the purchase. I would highly recommend Phillips Chevrolet, Joe and Jim.

All I can say is that it was a perfect transaction at Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort. From the very beginning with my shopping online, until I left the dealer with my new car, Jim Rio was always keeping me informed about the Camaro and the whole process in general.

I have had a few cars from this dealership and each and every time we come here the service is excellent. The employees are very interested in your needs and wants and always take the time to make sure that you understand everything about your car.

I would recommend this dealership to anybody who is interested in buying a vehicle. This facility is very clean, friendly people, and they are interested in making you feel comfortable and satisfied with your purchase. My family and I have bought many vehicles from Phillips Chevrolet and I would not choose to go anywhere else. I am trying to go through school and wanted to purchase a new vehicle and they were able to make that happen for me! I was very pleased on how the staff was willing to do everything they could to help me out. Great people and Great place!!

Everyone who needs to be in contact with the customer stays in contact with the customer. We received calls with updates from our service rep as well as courtesy calls from our salesman. We appreciate it. Our car was in the shop for about 5 days due to an uncommon problem, but we were frequently contacted and kept up to date.

- John B.

Jim Rio made the buying process so easy and didn't pressure me into buying a car if I wasn't comfortable with it. Jim gave me all of the information I needed and let me go without trying to hold me hostage. I called him up the next day and told him I would like to pick up that vehicle if it was still there. He showed me all of the features in the car, did all of the paperwork and then we were done. It was so easy! I wish all salesmen were like Jim! Good job Jim, thanks again!

- Sonny D.

I was truly satisfied and had an awesome experience! I felt no pressure from my sales man, Jim Rio, who I thought was very professional and a "down to Earth" kind of guy. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for a new car. Phillips Chevy has true professionals! Thank you!

- Thomas M.
