I purchased a new Equinox yesterday from Phillips Chevrolet in Lansing. Salesman TJ was excellent. He carefully listened to my wants and needs and then brought a variety of new vehicles up for me to choose from! A very kind a knowledge salesman. I highly recommend him and Phillips!!

- Family

When I approached the dealership, we were greeted by TJ right away. We quickly told him what we were looking for and he went right to work. After discovering our needs and wants, TJ tailor made a recommendation for us that exceeded all of our expectations, and made much more financial sense than what we were trying to do. TJ was personable, friendly, courteous and actually quite hilarious!! He made us feel like family and we had only known him for an hour. Thanks for the great experience TJ!

T.J met us at the door. I wasn't sure that I would be able to get a car but I told him about my issues. My car had been totaled and I didn't have any Gap insurance. So I still owed money on my old car and my credit was kind of marginal. T.J. was confident that Phillip's Chevrolet could help me. T.J. was able to work out a great deal for me. Once I took the car home I realized that there were some features that I thought I was getting that were not on the car. When T.J. called to see how things were going I told him that I was not happy. He assured me that I would be satisfied. T.J. and his manager James made sure that I got the features that I wanted without paying extra. These are great buys and this is a good dealership.

My family and I showed up on a freezing Friday evening to just "look" at vehicles. Freezing temperatures did not stop our salesman TJ from showing us vehicles out in the lot. He made our experience fun and stress-free, explaining everything thoroughly, that we ended up leaving with a brand new Chevy Equinox LT. He went out of his way to make our experience pleasurable, with no pressure to buy. Thank you TJ for helping us chose our very first brand new vehicle for our family. We greatly appreciate the help from everyone at the dealership, very helpful and professional.

If you're coming to Phillips Chevrolet ask for T.J. if he hasn't already come and open the door for you. Definitely the coolest salesman in the building I wouldn't ask for anyone else. If it were possible he needs to be cloned and replace everyone working there.

We drove in from Rockford on a snowy evening not arriving until 7:30. Having dealt with the preliminaries over the internet we were not sure what to expect once we got to the dealership.TJ took us in hand as soon as we arrived and walked us through every step of the process including staying past closing time to make sure we were satisfied and left with the new vehicle. TJ is a very knowledgeable asset to the dealership.

- Miner

We walked into the dealership looking for a willing salesman; T.J Pacocha greeted us promptly welcoming us. We told him we saw a Jeep online and we were interested in test driving it. TJ showed us the vehicle and explained in detail all the options it had. He also explained the difference of buying at a Phillips dealership. He was patient when we had to talk private and at no time pressured us to make a deal. He and the Phillips team helped us to get what we needed for our trade-in. We are very happy with our purchase and the attention given after the sale.

I started on the internet with Uniqueka and Jackie, they were quick to get back with me, and then when my wife and I got to the dealership we met T.J Pacocha and we were treated better than any other dealership ever. TJ has to be one of the best sales people I have ever met, he told me all about my new truck and made sure it was the right truck for me. Uniqueka even booked a hotel for us to stay the night because we had a 5 1/2 hour drive home, and TJ put the hotel and my home address in the truck so i would not any problems. Now that's what I call service. I will talk to TJ when I’m ready to buy again. Thank you Phillips Chevrolet!

I got Camaro in June from Phillips Chevy and was so pleased with TJ’s service I came back for a second car. Throughout the months TJ would call me to make sure I was happy and if he could help me with questions or problems. He stayed in contact with me and researched the dealerships inventory to find a great affordable car for me, he's the salesperson you want to deal with. I got a new 2017 Malibu with a very low interest rate. Hands down I got a great deal and didn't have to wait long. If you’re looking for a great dealership and great salesperson come see T.J!

- Jimmy

Let me start off by saying TJ Pacocha is the man to see at Phillips Chevy in Lansing. I could not ask for anything more! I love my 2017 Impala! As a matter of fact we appreciated his service so much that we went back and got something for my wife and trust me she loves her 2017 Traverse! Bottom line we are both happy customers! Thanks again TJ for an experience we shall never forget and if we were to ever to shop again, trust me it would be with you!

- Alterado

I pulled up into the dealership and TJ was standing outside waiting which meant he was the one to put me in a vehicle. I had an idea of what I wanted but wasn't sure it was there but TJ showed me a vehicle that was actually better than what I wanted. He was real pleasant to me and my spiritual father. As we we're getting ready to leave the dealership, he came out and said to my spiritual father it was nice to meet you. And that day was his birthday!!!

- Brightfame

It was a very hot day and our salesperson T.J made sure we had water to drink while he was showing us the new cars. We ended up buying an Impala and trading in an Equinox. T.J and everyone else were very friendly. The Impala seems to be a lot of everyone's choice because of the great discount. I would recommend Phillips and T.J.

- Npolo

From beginning to end, what an awesome experience. My salesman T.J went above and beyond. Still following up to make sure I'm using my car to its fullest potential. I’m so happy and proud to be driving around in my new Chevy Impala. Thank you for making my first brand new car experience, the absolute best one. Phillips really knows how to treat their customers. And thank you to sales mgr. Mark and finance mgr. Tom for all you did.

My salesman, Mr. T.J. Pacocha was waiting at the door when my wife and I drove in the lot. He is a very good salesman who was very patient with an old man and an old woman. He explained everything and answered every question. He spent a lot of time with us not knowing whether we were going to buy or not. We were supposed to pick up our car at 12 noon on Wednesday October 5, 2016. Mr. Pacocha did not start work until 1:00 pm that day but Mr. Troy Ivory got us started on our finishing paperwork as if he were our original salesman. Mr. Mark Hawkins, the finance manager, painstakingly explained everything about our financing. Mr. Henry King explained all of the aftermarket car necessities. This is a very solid dealership whose intention from "GO" is for you to have a good experience. My wife and I were both impressed.

- Herbert and Evelyn

This is first purchase at Phillips and this really was a great experience, everyone was respectful, professional, and great at explaining things to me given this was my time buying a brand new 2016 vehicle. Thomas Pacocha (TJ) is literally the best; he is very clear and knowledgeable of his job. 10 out of 10 for me and would recommend anybody.

- Jkenniel

Well this hard working young man named T.J knows exactly what this business is about. He is so smart, very educated and a great person. He helped me out to look for the car that is the best for me at this time. Nice new car at a good price!

Bought a new Chevy Trax today with the help of Mike S. It was one of the most pleasurable car buying experiences I have ever had. He was very informative and moved everything along very quickly. I also had Paul finish all my paperwork in finance and he was also very pleasant. It really seemed like everyone I dealt with really loved their jobs. I would recommend Mike Stramaglia to anyone if they are looking for the same experience I had. Thank You Phillips Chevrolet!

- Happy Camper

Mike was very helpful and has followed up with me and has offered to help me if and when I have any questions. To be honest, he made us feel so comfortable and it felt like having a good friend guide me through everything! He made it a relaxed, fun and enjoyable experience!

- Scott P.

Mike took care of us and helped us with our trade in and new car purchase. We told him we had little time and needed to be out by a certain time. He made sure this happened even though we had quite a few requests. Thanks Mike for taking your time with us and for your patience!

- Linda

Sierra, Mike, and Justin were great. Sierra answered my questions via email and provided more information than I had asked of her. After contacting several dealers online she responded via email when the others called or didn't respond. Mike didn't pressure me and made me laugh. Justin worked hard to get me the deal that I wanted. If you're in the market for a new or used vehicle stop by and check out Phillips Chevy in Lansing!

- Gena

I am happy I chose Phillips Chevrolet in Lansing to do my car search. I had the best experience of my life thank to Mike Stramaglia. I never received such wonder service from a car lot before, he answered all questions, had patience, and was very friendly. I will never forget my experience and will always come back there when I’m looking to purchase a vehicle. Thank you Mike and the Phillips Chevy staff.
