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 answers, assuring you made the right choice. Kudos to their team!

They do a great job at Philips! This was the easiest car buying experience we have ever had! This place is amazing! They have professional staff, awesome service and friendly management!

It’s always a pleasure working with Jamie Birks and the rest of the staff at Phillips. I always have a simple, straight forward purchase every time. I always recommend Phillips whenever someone is in the market for a car.

My experience at Philips with Joe and Sam was a very simplistic experience. So much so that I bought a total of three cars from them in two months, one of them for a friend of mine who lives in Wisconsin I like Joe and Sam’s no pressure simplistic approach to car buying. They allowed me to choose my vehicle then I told them my parameter for payments, then they went to find a way to make it work it was a simple no pressure approach which made the process of car buying more relaxing. Even when one vehicle didn't work they respected my needs and worked on finding another vehicle that would suit my needs and payments. I was very satisfied with the end result and even when a few problems surfaced after the deal the service dept. and managers were quick to respond and also absorbed the costs for fixing the problems.

My husband was in need of a new vehicle and we didn't want to go overboard with the price. I called Sam Darwish, whom I leased a car from a year and a half ago, and that was such an easy transaction as well. I called him late on a Friday night and told him exactly what I wanted. He had the car sitting and waiting for my husband to test drive when we got there. There was no price haggling and he gave me the best price right off the bat. He told me he was the sales manager now and I had to deal with a salesperson. He introduced to Jamie Birks who was just as delightful, my husband loved her! Then we get to finance and dealt with Matthew Braley. I would definitely recommend this dealership!

Any experience in sales could never become absolutely perfect. If so, there would not have room for improvement. Nevertheless, I am a third time buyer at Phillips Chevy and each time my experiences have gotten better. I am a very satisfied customer. This time my finance rate had improved just as I was told would happen in my previous experience if I made my car payments on time. I am now riding in the vehicle of choice with a really good finance rate. Thanks to my sales rep and sales manager.

I was very happy with the outstanding level of customer skill exhibited to me by Joe Hamdan from the moment I entered the dealership. Joe treated me like family and was very knowledgeable about the vehicles on their lot. He ushered me through every step of the purchasing process. Joe and his colleagues Sam and Yasin were excellent!

We unexpectedly were back in the market for a new car after purchasing a Tahoe about 6 weeks earlier from Phillips. We returned to Phillips Chevrolet as we have been become regular customers by purchasing five vehicles since 2008 for our family because we have been able to get a fair deal and the staff is very friendly and personable. For our last 2 purchases, Sales Associate Stephen Robertson was extremely nice and helpful and Sales Manager Sam Darwish worked hard with us to get the deals were we needed it be to purchase our new Tahoe and Malibu. We are a Chevy family and Phillips Chevrolet has not given me a reason to look at buying anywhere else.

- Ddelrose

Everyone at Phillips is professional and friendly. I came to the dealership not thinking I could buy anything. Thank you Jaime, Sam, & Yasin for making it happen I love my Equinox!

For me personally buying a vehicle is like going to the dentist for a tooth extraction! Phillips Chevy made the experience pleasant and fast. Marty McKenna our salesman did everything possible and worked with us to make sure we were happy with our purchase. He also showed us everything we needed to know on how to use the touch screen etc. in the truck. All the employees we spoke with or dealt with were professional and courteous. The financing with Yasin Yassin was the fastest I have experienced at a dealership. Sam Darwish also did a great job making sure "the numbers" worked for us. I will definitely buy another vehicle from Phillips Chevy. No one was pushy, very nice to deal with. Best car buying experience we ever had.

- Tiger

I worked with Stephen Robertson when I purchased my vehicle. He was not pushy and was very relaxed and did not force me into something I did not want. I got an awesome price and financed with no issues to speak off. Also thank you Sam for making it happen. Thanks Alex in Frankfort!!

- Alex

I bought a new Camaro here previously, and just bought a new Silverado. Philips definitely has their act together - from the first phone call and email, to the moment you walk in the door, to the time you leave with your new vehicle. Far superior to several other dealerships I've experienced. No games, respectful, and very good follow through. Everyone is friendly and professional, and the deal was quite fair. Thank you Rami and Sam!

- Satisfiedtwice

Phillips Chevy has the Inventory that no one else has and that was the bottom line for me. They had the best price right out of the box, fair trade value, no screwing around meeting their hierarchy and they got right to the point. This is the third vehicle I bought from Phillips. Good job Steven Robertson, Sam and the entire Phillips Chevy Staff!

I have purchased my last three cars from Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and I don’t think I would ever buy from another dealership. The vehicle knowledge, friendly staff and over-all service always make buying from Phillips a great experience. I highly recommend Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort Illinois to all my friends and family. Many thanks to Joe Hamdan, Sam Darwish, Yasin Yassin and the rest of the staff for all your help!!! You guys are the BEST!

- Terri K.

My sales associate was Andy Gavin and the sales Manager was Sam Darwish. These two were probably the most professional and courteous duo to be selling cars, they made your car buying experience a thing to remember, they made you feel right at home like you were part of the Phillips family!!And not to mention the other outlets were a pleasure to deal with like finance. Andy took his time to explain the whole car to me and all the features it entailed, to me that is he took PRIDE in his job, I would definitely recommend your dealership to everyone, respectfully one happy customer!

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, Dan S. was always keeping me informed about the 2014 Cruze and the whole process in general. Sam was AWESOME!!! He kept me laughing and he was on POINT at all times!!! Angelo was cool made me feel comfortable and the gentleman from finance, I didn't catch his name but he is the office directly across from the machine that spits out the keys... Lol. He was very informative explained everything to me very clearly. The whole experience was GRRREEEEAT! 5 STARS!!!

I went to the internet to car shop for a good deal, I filled out a form online regarding my trade in and Phillips Chevrolet was the first dealership to call me. I am still receiving phone calls, email and snail mail regarding my trade from other dealerships. I even visited others but the customer service that we received was OUTSTANDING at Phillips Chevrolet. There is no comparison. Sam Darwish helped us out and made me believe it could be done. He got me a payment I could afford and a new car. I LOVE my 2013 Sonic and am sooooooo happy. Sam is friendly, knowledgeable and very personable. He will make it happen. One of the reasons I bought my car from Sam is because he took the time to call me on his day off. When I called and he wasn't in I left a voicemail. Then when I went to check out the cars online Phillips Chevrolet had live chat and they helped me immediately, plus they set up my appointment with Sam. He called me to confirm on his day off. To me this is going over and beyond. I am amazed at how this dealership is forward thinking with technology. Like I said there is no comparison to the others. I highly recommend Phillips Chevrolet to everyone. You CAN drive a new car, just believe and they will make it happen and with a smile on their face.

Sam was a great salesman, a real joy to work with.

- Terrence M.

Salesperson Sam Darwish was very thorough in explaining all features and helped me set up Bluetooth, XM radio, and OnStar. Also, I informed Sam of my style of shopping for vehicles, which is very straightforward, and he did not try to oversell me on vehicle options and other features. That was appreciated.

- Ronald P.

If you are visiting Phillips Chevrolet, ask for Sam Darwish He was very helpful and knowledgeable on the vehicles. He went out of his way and beyond, to accommodate my needs and wants. Overall my experience was 10/10 customer service was outstanding, staff very respectful and concern no pressure situation and overall I am happy with my purchase. Oh yeah, their financing center they don't play around, in and out!!!!

- Juan H.

Sam Darwish worked with me to get my dream retirement car. He was very helpful and made me comfortable throughout the sale process. The car is beautiful.

- Anna M.

My experience at Phillips Chevrolet was great. It was also my first time purchasing a brand new vehicle, so one could imagine the concerns I had venturing off into what I anticipated being a shark tank. Hardly a walk into the wild, I was greeted by a friendly, energetic staff; Sam, who I was referred to by a business acquaintance, helped me choose the perfect car (Silver 2013 Malibu). He has a warm, yet frank and honest demeanor and I could see why my buddy recommended him. While my credit wasn't the greatest, and I couldn't leave with the car that Friday, Sam and his team diligently worked their magic over the weekend and saw to it I was able to return and drive off the lot by Monday. I look to make purchases at Phillips and with Sam in the future.
