Anthony “AJ” Jenkins sold me my new Jeep Cherokee. He was very mindful of what I was needing and the budget that I needed to stay within. He definitely went above and beyond. If you’re looking for a new car, I strongly recommend giving AJ a call!
First Impressions Are Good

We formerly drove Subaru Forester. So the Pacifica is a welcome upgrade. We believe that we have a great value for the price we got. The engine is powerful and quite despite the size of the vehicle. We find the interior design flexible and well laid out. The comfort of the drive is good, not luxurious and we definitely notice the larger size, but these were expected. It is difficult to judge reliability at this time. Our car has 8k miles and has no issues.
The user interface on the vehicle was initially challenged by a lack of information (or our inability to find the information) in the manual. We have learned far more from instructional videos on YouTube. So, if you want an idea of how easy setting up phones and how to manage the car's systems - start there even before your test drive. After we drove it for a week, we found that the layouts were intuitive and the multiple ways of accomplishing the same task made common functions very manageable.
Our first impression on the Pacifica is that we can't wait to drive it.
We have bought two vehicles now with Scott Kuykendall, a new Pacifica and a used Wrangler and have enjoyed the no pressure sales. Scott goes above and beyond to accommodate and make the buying experience as painless as possible and was there to help answer any questions after we made the purchase.
Has some transmission problems

Love the looks of my van. Hate that this van has a hard shift problem. Been back to dealer several times, Chrysler states this is a normal condition. Nothing normal about driving down the road and almost getting into an accident due to car losing power then jerking into gear. Van is back at dealer hopefully for a fix this time.
Sam Leman should have been my first choice of dealerships to help us find a used Chrysler Pacifica. They were appropriately attentive, and truly cared and appreciated our business. Friendly and accommodating!
Paul Draper, was our sales person. He was very polite and informative. He knew his vehicles and explained my Pacifica to us extremely well. He also followed up with emails to help us more if needed anytime, to call or stop in and see him. He set up our phones on the computer in the car and they WORK, past vehicle we had trouble with that. A DIFFERENT SALES PERSON. I have called back to sales with questions for Paul Draper and John Phelps, both men called us back.
I am 73 years old and let me tell you, that times have changed since my first new 1964 Chevy Impala SS. I have been with Dealer since 1987. I have purchased several Mini Vans and one Conversion Van. We have had our ups and downs thru these yrs, but my Town and Country for the last 6 yrs has been the Best Vehicle I have ever owned. The staff at Sam Lemans has been the BEST ever over these six yrs. We lost our TC to a DEER, darn it anyway. We hope the Pacifica experience will be the same. Thanks You ALL.
Knowledgeable and professional but not pushy or ov

Jim Costello was knowledgeable and friendly and professional. He listened to what tyoe of Jeep I wanted to purchase. I wanted a Jeep Wrangler Sport with the newer engine, and it was hard to find on some websites. Jim , along with other staff members, let me test drive the 4 cyl turbo, so I could judge for myself. And there were a lot of option packages, and Jim explained them to me, so I could decide for myself what I wanted. I finally bought a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited , and I am very pleased with my purchase. Plus Jim was a big help after the sale with some tutoring on how to use the U-connect features. He got my cell phone connected right away. And he showed me how to set up the remote garage door opener and where the cntrols were for the radio.
Kyle was great to work with. Explained every thing that was going on and listened to us as we negotiated our deal. Everything eventually fell into place and I now own my dream car.
Safest vehicle I've ever driven.

This is our third Chrysler van and is by far the most advanced. We have owned 2015, 2016 Town and Country vans and the Pacifica is a tremendous upgrade. The electronic safety features make it easy for me, a 70 year old driver, feel very comfortable driving in traffic or backing
Just bought a 2018 Jeep Wrangler through Sam Leman of Peoria. We had the pleasure of working with Tim Cannon for a second time. Polite and courteous as always. He had our vehicle transferred over from Sam Leman in Morton. We were in and out quickly and easily. Will definitely be back as long as Tim Cannon is there!
Best car buying experience I ever had
by Mark at SPT from Tampa, FL

Shopped the entire State of Florida for a Pacifica just the way I wanted it. Ferman blew away the field with both selection and price and it wasn't even close. This dealership is full of professionals that aim to please. Miguel was our salesman, he bent over backwards, was honest and straightforward and made the experience a pleasure. They have a new customer for life.
Our salesman was very easy to work with though it was a busy Saturday and we had to 'share' him with other customers, so it extended our time there. We also did not get a walk through on setting up our Sirrius radio, phone pairing and the like. We were pleased with the negotiation process, available stock and test drives. We just wish we wouldn't have gone on a Saturday.
Great car with great features

Love the bells and whistles of our 2017 Pacifica. Love the space and comfort. The room and also the styling makes this car worth the price.
Excellent experience with my salesman Wilson Johnson ! Very fast, thorough and fantastic! This was my second time buying from Sam Leman. Would definitely do it again. Everything honest and upfront.
I miss the Honda Odyssey.

This is a good looking vehicle and very comfortable to ride in. Having Stow and Go for all middle and rear seats us great! Parking assist with back up camera is very helpful as well as the sensors on the side mirrors. The radio is easy to operate and I appreciate controlling the temperature for the whole vehicle from the front. My frustrations with the Pacifica are in the interior use of space. Putting 3 children's car seats in the middle row is very tight. The center console is small and not closed in( front or back) so one is limited with what can go in that space securely. The cup holders are small, limiting the size bottle or cup one can fit there, especially in the door. Some of the storage pockets are so small and such an odd shape, they're not usful. The Pacifica is nice, but I expected better than this from Chrysler.
Jengyuan was excellent to work with and found us exactly what we needed! This is the second car we have purchased from him. Great service!

Love the STOW AND GO seating! This alone is awesome for camping and not fussing with taking seats in and out. Cant wait to buy the vehicle, with as much extended coverage as I can get cause it’s a long term investment for me...10 years at least. Minivan drives and handles wonderfully!
My experience here was incredible! Lonnie was very helpful, and helped me get exactly what I wanted! I love my new Jeep Wrangler & I really appreciate the professionalism that Lonnie had given me! If you are ever in the market for a new car do not hesitate to call Lonnie he will make your car buying experience the best & you will know exactly what you’re leaving with!
The nicest vehicle I have ever owned
by StephenF from Dickinson, TX

The Pacifica is extremely nice, has more amenities than we actually originally were after, has a comfortable ride akin to a Mercedes and has been reliable in the past. We have 3 kids under 11 and it makes transporting them around for daily tasks easy and safe.
Efficient and friendly experience. Response to on-line inquiry was prompt. Car was ready for test drive at agreed upon time. Worked fairly to find a price that was comfortable.

Good looking car. There was a period of transition with all the bells and whistles, even on the L. Passengers all like the ride, but head rests have a strong forward tilt for some riders. Do like the bells and whistles, esp., flasher on mirrors when cars approach. Heat and air are both great.
We bought our new 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Limited from Sam Leman & the entire experience was awesome! After much online research, we selected Sam Leman because of the amount of Pacificas that they had in stock. We are so glad that we drove the 165 miles to check them out. Our sales rep, Johnathan Huff, was awesome to work with and we felt very comfortable with him from the time he approached us on the lot to the time we left in our new Pacifica after closing time. From start to finish the entire staff was awesome to work with and the follow up by them after our purchase has been awesome!!!
So far so good!

We just purchased a used 2017 Pacifica 2 days ago. So far it is going good. The only thing missing is USB ports in the 2nd and 3rd row seats. Other than that we love the Van!
The video controls have no button info and is extremely clunky. For instance you have 4 direction arrows and an ok button. No play button. So when the kids are wanting a movie to play you are blindly trying to get it to work while trying not to get into an accident. The GPS is more of the same. The voice commands while driving are extremely limited as to what you can say. It does not find normal reference points (could be from the lack of understood commands and references), it starts by asking you what country you are in, if it messes up the voice recognition in the 5 or 6 questions it asks you, you have to start over which is 70% of the time. The styling is great, the performance is as expected from a known platform but the user interface execution with the knowledge there are kid demands is some of the worst I have ever used. As a user of a vehicle like this and as a parent you have enough distractions, trying to use basic functions of the interface shouldn't be your biggest distraction. You are taking your eyes off the road way too much to try to figure out the vague controls that you just end up pushing whatever because there is no function assigned but its the only thing you have. Whoever designed this must not have kids and missed the idea to design a safe, easy, and a stress free user interface. This van concerns me for the safety of my family when sending my wife and kids out in it.
Heller Ford has the best prices hands down on used vehicles. Sales staff was courteous and friendly. The finance person Jake was not pushy and very helpful. Best car buying experience my wife and I have ever had. Will be going back in a couple years to update her vehicle. Will not even look anywhere else. Thank you Heller Ford!
I bought a used car from Paul Draper at Sam Leman in Morton IL. What a seemless process. He was knowledgeable and so friendly. No pressure at all. The finance guy was great too !! I highly recommend going there to buy a car and ask for Paul!!
Ran into problems with my purchase. Became unhappy with vehicle. Worked with Keith my salesman and Benji Lehman on getting me into a vehicle I was more comfortable with. Very satisfied with the outcome. Would recommend them in the future.
