Great friendly place.

Sales staff is amazing and worked with me on price! Service is a little busy but they do amazing work. I have bought 3 vehicles here and wouldn’t buy anywhere else.


Love our Jeeps!

My husband and I have purchased a New Jeep Wrangler and a New Jeep Cherokee from Shimkat Motor Company in the last 6 years. We both love our Jeeps and the service after the sale that we received from Shimkats!


Great sales people and service

Friendly helpful service. We have purchased both new and used and had an equally great experience. They want to be sure you find the car that's right for you! We will be back again. We are extremely happy with the vehicles we have purchased but also with the service received since those purchases. Whether it’s a recall needing completed or an oil change Shimkat is professional and accommodating in all departments.


Great one on one attention!

Purchased my first ever brand new car here! Great service and quality one on one attention given to me and answered all of my questions!!


Awesome/Friendly and Family Owned!!

When I had to purchase a new car Shimkat's made the buying process so much easier. Very friendly and so helpful. They made the whole process so easy. Won't buy a car from anywhere else!! I especially like that it's family owned. Their customer service is AMAZING!



Loved going to Shimkats for our new vehicle. We have also gotten used cars from them in the past. Great service in all departments whether new or used! They go above and beyond to make sure everything is done correctly and on time.


Best dealership in Fort Dodge!

Everyone is super nice and helpful at Shimkat! Best dealership in Fort Dodge by far! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀


Amazing Dealership

Such a great place to buy a vehicle or get a vehicle serviced. Everybody is very nice and helpful. I can see why they have been in business for over 70 years.


Great buying experience.

Sales staff did an excellent job locating a vehicle that was exactly what I wanted. They arranged to have the vehicle transported from out of state. They were great with all of my questions.


Never again

On July 12th, 2018, I left a tire at the service department for repair or replacement, we had purchased the tire and a spare tire kit there earlier this year, the instructions were that if it couldn;t be patched, to replace the tire and that my wife would pick it up after work, even discussed having them swap it with the spare while she was there. At 2:30, my wife called to let them know she was on her way to pick it up, whereas she was told it couldn't repaired and they didn't replace it either, seems they don;t remember the conversation when I dropped it off. No problem, just replace it, it's a 20 minute drive. Nope, gave her the run around about having to get an estimate and call her back, for the same tire we purchased there this year. That's too bad, guess we'll go to Ames from now on, shopping local with this dealer has no benefit.
