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!

I recently purchased a vehicle from Phillips Chevrolet and I was so pleased with the service! Every single person that I interacted with greeted me with a smile and put forth every effort to get me the best deal possible. Donna Lee was an excellent saleswoman. She was very knowledgeable about all features and option available. I would recommend anyone to go and see Donna if they looking for someone to listen to what they want in a car and help them to reach their goal with patience. I would also recommend Phillip Chevrolet to anyone looking to purchase a new or used vehicle!

I have been dealing with Phillips Chevrolet for over 15 years now. This was the first time I worked with the Lansing, IL location. Our experience was again a very satisfying one. The Phillips team is always great to deal with. They know their product, have a good selection of the vehicles in stock - set up the way we like them. They're honest and fair, always ready to help out in the selection process, and best of all - you get the best price out there. We purchased 3 pick up trucks. Chevy had a program that offered accessory upgrades for free. Our salesman, Mark Peterson, had us work with Henry King on finalizing those upgrades. In no time we had it worked out. We were able to get all 3 trucks fitted out in a matter of a couple hours. The service guys got right to work and were courteous but even better they were helpful with suggestions on how best to use the products. We got side steps, bed liners and tailgate locks, and a couple of console adapters. ALL FREE including the installation. Owner/Manager Mike Maheras runs a great dealership. We've been dealing with him and his staffs for a long time. Basically, Phillips is where we go for vehicles. We have compared pricing sometimes, and Phillips beats the competition, period. As for quality, Chevy has it hands down. In 15 years now we've purchased over 12 vehicles, including some personal ones. Great people, honest people and fair pricing with service better than others.

I have been buying my Chevy's from Phillips Chevrolet for the last 20 years, Chevrolet is a high quality product and the employees are no different at Phillips starting at the top with the General Manager Michael Maheras. I was in the showroom on 7.14.12 for no more than a minute when I was greeted by Michael and immediately introduced to my salesman Joe Luque. This was my first time working with Joe and he was terrific. Joe was very informative regarding the vehicle that I was interested in, suggesting alternative options, i.e. different packages available and answered every question that I had without fail. I cannot say enough about the effort that was shown by all parties involved, Michael, Joe and the finance department to get a deal worked out that was a good "fit" for me to leave the dealership that day with the vehicle I wanted. Phillips Chevrolet once again knocked it out of the park and reinforced my opinion that I will not go anywhere else to purchase a Chevrolet. GREAT JOB ONCE AGAIN!!!!

Mike and Dan went above and beyond to service my new Camaro. These two found a solution to a difficult request and made my satisfaction a number one priority. As a GM Mike truly cares about the customer and speaks to you with candor. Dan the Service Director is highly skilled technically and kept me informed throughout the service process. Phillips Chevrolet sets the bar in the car buying experience and I look forward to purchasing with them later this year. Great work guys and thank you!

Phillips Chevy has fantastic customer service. The employees are very friendly and accommodation. They will go out of their way to make sure that you find the perfect car to fit all of your needs. I would recommend this dealership if you are looking for great service and a great car at a price you can afford!

For two months my boyfriend and I talked about getting a car and spent a lot of time researching all of our options. Last Thursday we went into Phillips Chevrolet just to look. We knew we were very interested in the Chevy Cruze. We thought we would only be able to afford a used car, so we looked at a few 2012s. Henry King was our salesman and he was very helpful and knowledgeable. We test drove a brand new 2013 Cruze and he showed us all of the awesome features the car had to offer. We instantly fell in love with this car. When we sat down to talk about numbers Mike Maheras also helped us out. Him and Henry both made us feel so comfortable with our decision and helped work out a deal that we just couldn't pass up! Neither Henry nor Mike ever got impatient with us, even though I was quite the pain. They answered all of our questions and never tried to push anything on us. They made our experience amazing and I would definitely recommend anyone interested in buying a new car to Phillips Chevrolet! Most people say going to the car dealership is such a headache but our experience was the opposite. We could not be more excited or happier with our new car! Thanks again to Henry and Mike!!

We have bought 8 cars from Marty McKenna in the last 8 years. Marty is a man who goes above and beyond to help get done whatever needs to be done! I would not buy from any other salesman. We have several issues with our vehicles that were a gm problem not a Phillips problem. Mike Maheras and Dan Kachnisky have gone to great lengths to help resolve these issues. I would not buy anywhere but Phillips and only with the help of these 3 men!

I just purchased my Tahoe last night and it was the best experience I have ever had purchasing a car and I have bought a lot. Mike Maheras and Mark Peterson were wonderful financing was a breeze I will definitely purchase my next car from them.

EXCELLENT customer service experience! These gentleman, Mike Maheras, John Smidt, and Tony Cesario, as I have mentioned above, treated me like VIP! They were extremely welcoming and knew exactly how to tend to my needs. Employees like this are the reason that businesses succeed. I will definitely recommend Phillips Chevy to all of my family and friends. Thank you!

This was not the first time I purchased a new Corvette from Phillips Chevrolet. The experience I just had buying my 2014 Corvette was just as enjoyable as the others. I did not have to negotiate price, the price quoted was very fair so that was easy. The salesman and general manager I dealt with were very professional, laid back, and most of all very helpful. From helping me pick out the options, showing me how to work the options (much more hi tech than my previous Vette), getting me in and out of there in a reasonable amount of time - it was a pleasure dealing with Phillips Chevrolet. I will definitely go back to them when the time comes to get a new car and would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends and family. I mainly dealt with Marty McKenna and Mike Maheras ,but the aftermarket and finance guys that also worked with me were just as nice. I think the customer comes first philosophy is what they live by!

Professional, fast, attentive, everything I asked was answered. Great place for a new car purchase. Joe Hamden, Mike Maheras, and Matt Braley did everything they could to make my wife and myself feel comfortable.

I purchased a used 2011 2SS Camaro from a non-Chevrolet dealership in Chicago. According to the Car Fax I received with the automobile, the original destination for the car, when new, was Phillips Chevrolet. I contacted Phillips to see if I would be able to get a copy of the window sticker that came with the car. I had the great fortune of being transferred to Mike Maheras. Mike was very personable, professional and extremely HELPFUL!!!! He emailed me copies of the build sheet they had for my car immediately!! I was so pleased to get that information. Mike called me back a day or two later to let me know they were unable to get a copy of the window sticker because the car was over a year old. I thanked Mike for his efforts over and over as I was thrilled to get at least the build sheet for the car. Lo and behold about two weeks later, Mike called me to let me know they did get a copy of the sticker and he would forward it on to me. I can't tell you how great that feels to have someone go out of their way to help me like that!!!! I can't thank Mike enough for all that he does. I will make it a point to have my car serviced at Phillips even though I live on the northwest side of the city!!!! Mike earned my business!!!! Thank you!

I dealt with Mike Maheras the GM of Phillips, on the lease numbers, and he was fantastic. Straight forward, honest and ethical. I will go out of my way to purchase a Chevy in the future just so I can work with Phillips again.

Marty McKenna and Mike Maheras were very helpful and I received outstanding service from them.

If I could say to General Motors, Chevrolet Division, do whatever you can to keep Phillips Chevy a dealer of yours. They represent your products the best I have ever seen, and I always see the Gen Manager, Mike, in there talking with customers - I personally like that in a dealership. Great people at Phillips Chevy - GM should be very proud of them.

- Thomas G.

Phillips is a 5 star dealership. The staff is professional in sales and service. The GM Mike Maheras goes above and beyond to ensure satisfaction and his leadership sets the tone at the entire facility.

- Ryan C.

Everyone was professional when working with my credit. Mike Maheras was great at working with me on the prices, and he made me feel at home. Both trips I made to the dealership were excellent, everyone was smiling the entire time and always willing to help me. I ended up getting a new car because it was what I wanted to do, there was no pressure from anyone. Mike Maheras gave me such a great deal it only made sense to get a new vehicle.
