My experience with car buying at Phillips Chevrolet was the best I've ever had. I was treated with excellent customer service by my sales associate Mr. Eric Pickett. Mr. Pickett was professional throughout the entire deal, he was very knowledgeable of Chevrolet's products and services, and he had a nice sense of humor. I will tell everyone I know, or people I meet about my experience at Phillips in Lansing, so they can have the same experience. I choose Phillips Chevrolet in Lansing to be the #1 and best car dealership.

When we arrived at Phillips Chevrolet, my husband and I met the kindest and professional salesman, Eric Pickett. We had an outstanding experience with Mr. Pickett. He made us feel welcomed and too the time to ask all the appropriate questions so that he could effectively help us choosing a vehicle that is perfect for us. We knew that we were valued customers. We left happy and beyond satisfied in a vehicle that exceeded our expectations. Because of the wonderful experience at Phillips Chevrolet, we will be referring many others.

I was searching for a new 2016 Tahoe LS and began corresponding with Jorge Rios via the internet. Jorge was great. He wasn't pushy and kept me informed of new internet deals as they were published. One of the deals was unbelievable and I scheduled a date and time to test drive the vehicle at the Lansing location. That is where I met salesman Eric Pickett. Eric was great. He knew what I was interested in and closed out the deal. Eric was welcoming, very professional, and knowledgeable of the product and most importantly he wasn't pushy. I highly recommend Phillips Chevrolet and if you decide to visit the showroom in Lansing ask for Eric Pickett, you won't be disappointed.


Eric Pickett has surpassed being a salesman to my family, he has become a family member. We have purchased two vehicles from him in the last year and we are extremely satisfied. We would recommend anyone to go and see him!

My experience was PHENOMENAL!! I mean these people were nice right when I walked through the door. I didn't know what my experience or time spent was going to be like. I came in wishing and hoping for the best and that’s what I got! I read some reviews and did some research before coming in, I personally dealt with Eric Pickett and he was the BEST! Hands down from his customer service, to him being straight forward, it was not just about a sale to him. He even bought us lunch! Got me a GREAT new car!! You want to feel comfortable when are purchasing a vehicle well this is the place to go! Tom is a great guy in finance really down to earth type of guy! Gets all you stuff prepared and ready to go for you!

Unfortunately walking into a car dealership has a reputation of ending up with an overzealous sales representative but that was not the experience we had with Eric Pickett. We encountered a professional and warm welcoming experience with a sales specialist whose interest was satisfying the consumer. Phillips keep up the good work in providing us consumers with knowledgeable and friendly specialists such as Eric Pickett!

- Dad

It was a great experience. Eric Pickett took excellent care of me. I told him what I wanted and he delivered beyond my expectations. He was totally focused on making sure that I was well informed. He treated me like I was important. I was his number one priority. This was a wonderful experience! I had gone to another dealership and the salesperson was trying to help several other customers while I waited for hours. At Phillips everyone is so helpful. I had bought a vehicle here before and because of an accident I had to get another one. I told others about my first experience and now after dealing with Eric I will be recommending Phillips and Mr. Pickett to friends and family!!

My experience with car buying at Phillips Chevrolet was the best I've ever had. I was treated with excellent customer service, and my sales person Mr. Eric Pickett was extremely patient with me. My experience didn't take hours; everything was all complete in a reasonable amount of time. I would recommend Phillips Chevrolet to everyone I know. Thanks Eric for representing Phillips well, and for making my driving experience the best.

- Shirleen J.

I believe I was led to this dealership by a higher power. Eric Pickett treated me so well along with my friend and was very helpful with whatever I asked. In my opinion I believe he deserves salesman the year award. I would definitely recommend people to Phillips Chevrolet because of my experience with Pickett

I was welcomed by salesman Eric Pickett. He made me feel very comfortable, answered all my questions with lots of patience and knowledge. I was only expecting to look and ask questions, but Eric assured me he could get me financed and they did, which in itself was a miracle. I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. I left there feeling like a queen. At least that’s how they made me feel. Thank again

I've purchased cars in the past and it has not been a great experience. Walking in to Phillips Chevy and being greeted immediately by Eric Pickett was excellent. Eric was friendly, honest and I did not feel pressured at ALL to purchase anything. He worked with me and really helped me get what I was looking for. I did not want to buy another used car. I wanted a brand new car, which was something that I never had before. Eric was able to get me the car payment that I was looking for and the type of vehicle I wanted as well. My mother and sister were there to support me and act as my "back up" if I needed them. Eric was so friendly, gracious and funny with all of us that I finally understand what it means to have a great car buying experience!!! I walked out of Phillips Chevrolet with a 2015 Chevy Equinox. The color is called blue velvet, but I have renamed it my "Blue Baby". I love driving it back to Cincinnati and my family is VERY happy with my purchase. I literally told everyone I knew that they should come see Eric Pickett and the rest of the Phillips Chevrolet family for their next car purchase. Thanks to everyone there and keep up the GREAT WORK Eric!

- Ashley J.

Very upfront and honest professionals, especially enjoyed doing business with Mr. Eric Pickett, I would definitely recommend others to come see him about purchasing their next vehicle!

- Bryant H.

I love what you all have done it's a beautiful dealership the lay out is awesome and the salesman was great! I have brought a few cars in my life time and this was one of my best experiences! Thanks Phillips Chevrolet and a special thanks to Eric Pickett and I'll enjoy my new 2015 Corvette!

- Bryant H.

I recently bought a Toyota Scion XB from Chevy used, but when I told Eric Pickett what I was looking for he didn’t hesitate to show me another brand for vehicle to give me complete satisfaction. I would recommend anyone’s first car buying experience to be with Chevy hands down. hope Iwas as helpful as Chevy has been to me and my family.

- Nick

Overall it was a great experience. Very comfortable and feel that I got both a good value on a new car as well as value from my trade in.

My experience with Phillips Chevy was *excellent*. I'm a recent college graduate, and was in the market for a new car to get me from point A to point B - I had an idea of what I was looking for, but the tricky part was finding what I wanted in my price range. After finding the 2013 Chevy Spark, I knew that it was the car for me. Phillips had the exact car we were looking for at a price that no other dealership could beat. We had previously worked with a different dealership that was closer to us, and even they couldn't believe the amazing price Phillips was giving us (about 700 dollars less than the lowest offer we had found previously!). There was absolutely no hassle at all - no price haggling, no upselling - we got exactly what we inquired about, at the price listed on their website. The staff was even willing to work with us until after their normal business hours had ended - just so we could get the car as soon as possible. They were an absolute pleasure to do business with and made the hour drive to get there WELL worth it. I couldn't have asked for a better first car buying experience!

- Kelsey K.

We were treated with every courtesy. They made the process easy and this was important to us.

- Robert W.

The customer service as this establishment was by far the best service I have had. They were extremely friendly and accommodating as well as informative. The service done on my car was excellent and took no time at all. I would highly recommend people to come here and definitely will be coming back for future services. Keep up the good work!

- Stephanie N.

We walked in just wanting to look at a car we spotted on the internet, and walked out with a 2011 hhr. The service was friendly, and the rep didn't "pressure" us into buying the car. Instead, he worked with our price range. We also had a 4 year old, and the staff was very patient and accommodating with our family while we were taken care of.

I bought a 2012 Sonic LT and its awesome! I got a fair price, service was great, and everybody was friendly and made the process a breeze.

- Jose

The team worked hard to get us what we wanted. They have gone out of their way to track down a specific type of truck wanted. Everyone at this dealership that we have come across is willing to help the customer. Great customer service. Thanks for everything. I recommend this dealership!

- Michelle

Buying a car can be an overwhelming experience, but the guys/girls at Phillips made it a fun, painless one! Everybody was friendly; I will recommend them to everyone!

- Karen F.

Great dealership - would definitely recommend. Employees are great and I look forward to doing future vehicle purchases there.

- Michael D.

I have purchased many vehicles from Phillips and always received great service from the sales and service staff. I will keep making my purchases from them in the future. Keep up the great job! Thanks!

- Bill P.

I have never received the service I received from Phillips Chevy! My sales rep went above and beyond to ensure I received the best service possible. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I have told so many people about Phillips and will recommend anyone who is looking to purchase a new vehicle to your facility. Thank you!

- Carmen M.

Our family has purchased six vehicles, new Chevy's, from Phillips in the last two years. This is by far the best run and family friendly dealer I have ever dealt with. This store could teach most of the dealers out there how to operate a store that is customer friendly. The employees cannot do enough to make your visit friendly and you get the feeling that they are a very honest family business. I recommend everyone to Phillips if they are looking for an auto. Keep up the good work, Phillips!
