Mine was constantly in the shop for one thing or another and they never could fix it. Poor accelerator / transmission response left me frequently screaming at the vehicle in a panic because it would leave me a sitting duck in dangerous traffic situations. Though the paint job was attractive, the clear coat on the exterior paint seemed about non-existent, as a little bird guano ate all the way to the primer in a day. This vehicle was a very frustrating experience, and I highly recommend spending the extra few thousand and buying its slightly bigger but tremendously better sibling, the Sonic.
Steve Sheldon, was great!! Finance was unbelievable!! I would recommend this dealership to friends and relatives!! Steve was my salesperson, ask for him, they will do what ever needed to get you in a car!!!
Just my size, and color. Nice smooth ride.

It's only 4 seated, but it's just myself and daughter. Not a lot of back space, but it'll do. I love the wifi hotspot in the car. Stereo system is great. I recommend this car for a couples, one or two small children. Fits in any parking space. Very small rear window. However you can see everything your surroundings.
Not sure what I was going to do today while turning in my leased vehicle,however I ended up leaving with a new vehicle. Joe Bauman, my salesman did a great job of not pressuring me and making me feel so at ease. Not only Joe but every one in the facility that dealt with me were very professional. I was very happy with my visit today at Dave Arbogast thank you.
THE BEST ON GAS MILEAGE EVER!

Now we're a 2 Spark family!! Love the sunroof & new design from our 2013 Spark. You can't beat the price, value, and gas mileage. Gotta love our Chevys;)
Have bought several vehicles from Dave Arbogast now and have always been treated very well. We have always had Joe Bauman as our salesman and he is a great guy and wonderful to work with!

We needed a low weight vehicle to tow by our motorhome. I can hardly walk after riding in this car. I cannot imagine that anyone tested these seats before designing them. They are the most uncomfortable seats I have ever experienced.
Easily one of the best car buying experiences I've ever had. I highly recommend everyone give Independent Auto Sales a try. Ultimately, purchasing a car has a lot to do with how you feel about your purchase. I haven't felt this good about purchasing a car in a long time. Kudos to Independent Auto Sales!
I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS LITTLE CAR

Haven't loved a car this much since my '72 VW. Rides great, roomy, comfortable, all the bells and whistles of a more expensive car. Feels solid. Fit and finish are flawless.
clean facility, friendly people, good selection of used anf preowned certified.

We bought this car to pull behind our motor home because it was one of the few cars that you didn't need to do much to except hook it up and go. We also used it to run around town, to the bank, grocery store, post office..etc. After we sold our motor home we keep it and used it more often then our family car. Great on gas! I only have to fill it once every two weeks, and since it only holds about 10 gallons, the price of gas is not a big problem.
Everyone was courteous. Technician recommended an urgent repair. Was not able to talk to the technician and the service rep could not answer my questions. Also, I was probably overcharged for the Keyfobs, but I have not heard back from McCluskey yet.
Good car for your money

I love my Spark! It has manual locks and windows but that is the only drawback I’ve found so far. Great gas mileage. It’s my daily driver and I’m averaging about 37-38 mpg. For a brand new car after taxes and things I’m only paying about $14,000!
Great service, friendly and attentive. Would recommend to anyone needing assistance finding a great car! Great selection and fair pricing. Great atmosphere. Will be back for any auto needs.
Cheap and reliable transportation!

Great little car with the accent on ?little?. Have put 20,000 miles on it, and bought it with 10,000. It is a bit noisy, but I bought it for the commuter car it is! Only changed oil and it is just what I wanted! Easy turn radius, and will drive it forever!
The sales person that I worked with Scott Martin did an excellent job finding the car features that I wanted within my budget. The whole staff was friendly and easy to work with.
Barely worth the effort

I purchased this car from a new/used auto dealership in Maine. I originally saw it listed for about $10k and when the price dropped over time to about $7k I made the deal. At this pricepoint the car was barely worth it as I would come to find out. At time of purchase the car had about 11k miles on it. At about 40k the computer chip failed, not once but twice! I was fortunate the local dealership I brought it to made required repair at no cost to me. I also discovered after owning this car that the rear seats do NOT fold all the way down, making it impossible to carry anything in back. By the time car hit 70k the hatchback was sticking and I had to open it by getting at lock from inside the car.
Everything from top to bottom, inside and outside was very satisfying at my visit to Jeff Schmitt East. I would and have recommended them to friends and family. Thank you!
Surprisingly good little car !

Wife wanted a runabout for around town and occasional road trips and the Spark has proven to be perfect for our needs as a third vehicle. I was amazed when I first test drove the car as the ride was smooth, quiet and the car felt secure and solid over some rough stretches of pavement. I think the performance is good given the intended purpose - peppy around town and cruises effortlessly on the highway with the exception of steeper sections when it struggles a bit to maintain cruise control set speed. Lots of room inside for 4 adults and good cargo space with the rear seat down. Ours is the top of the line 2LT and the extra features contained in the package are worth the price in our opinion. We couldn't be happier with the car and high recommend it.
Kings DJC is the only place we shop for our vehicles. The Grand Cherokee Laredo and Commander have out-performed any vehicles we have ever owned. Kings DCJ found us the best SUV for the money, end of story. Jordan worked with us on the Grand Cherokee on the phone all day, we showed up and poof, no need to look elsewhere. He did everything he said he would. Mr. Brinkman is a kind man. He put the wheels in motion to sponsor my son's charitable foundation, The My GI Foundation www.mygivets.com and Kings DCJ was given a Combat Wounded parking sign from the foundation. We need a third car and it will be a Kings DCJ vehicle and we already have a nice guy in Mr. Chad Johnson searching for our current need. We go back next year and buy the third Jeep dad has had since 1994. You can buy a car anywhere, but few do the extra work to bring you in at a fair price, with no loan surprises, and I highly suggest buying your investment from Kings DCJ.
Love this car

Cute, economical, great value for the money! Very comfortable ride. It looks real small on the outside, and it is, but it does not feel that way inside.
Our car broke down over the holiday weekend. Larkin had it in first thing in Monday morning, diagnosed and repaired super efficiently. We’d lost several days time so we were very grateful for their excellent service

I loved this vehicle very much, especially as a city car...even does well on long road trips too, fit everything i needed to fit and goes a long way without refueling.
