Our salesman Scott was very courteous and fun to deal with. He answered all our questions and i would not hesitate to recommend him or the dealership to anyone interested in buying a car.
Safest vehicle I've ever driven.
by Bay City senior driver from Bay City Mi

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
We have purchased several vehicles from Shields. We always have a good experience. Pete and Butch were great all through the purchase process, very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! Would HIGHLY recommend Shields in Paxton!
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.
I originally came in to ask about the new 2019 RAV4, for which little information had been disseminated to the dealers by that time. The only thing of which they were certain was the late December release date. Warren took the opportunity to tell me about the deals going on for the 2018 RAV4. I am no fan of the exterior styling of this generation, but Warren found me one that not only was colored to minimize the aspects of the body that bother me, but also include the things I was seeking in a new vehicle (AWD, better gas mileage, upgraded safety and technology features, etc.). He was able to answer my questions and had a much-appreciated sincerity. The last thing I wanted was to feel manipulated by a slick-talking salesman and Warren was the perfect salesman to deal with me. Overall, a pleasant buying experience and I am becoming happier with my purchase with each mile.
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.
Bradley McElroy made this purchase the easiest and most enjoyable I've ever been apart of. Nothing but 5 stars for Brad. I will be back in the future.
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.
It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.
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.
All around great service. Friendly and honest service. Comster service was always available. I recieved my vehicle within four days after the completed process, of paper work.
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.
I recently purchased a 2017 Lincoln MKX from Jake Marshky at Rick Ridings and received superb service. The vehicle perfectly fit my family's needs and Jake was wonderful to work with. I would definitely recommend this dealership.

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!
I bought a van from Rick Ridings and could not be more happy. Dan Dressen was the sales associate I bought the vehicle off of and he was great. Answered any questions I had and was down to earth which makes buying a car so much easier. If your ever up in the air about where to purchase your next vehicle from I would totally recommend Rick Ridings in Monticello and ask for Dan Dressen you will not be sorry. I will be a forever customer!
Traded in a 13 yr old Odyssey

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.
Even though we had to drive 6 hours to get there, it was totally worth it! Such a nice guy and understanding person! Great customer service and so kind! Even got flowers! This was my first out-of-state car and I must say that he did way more than expected. I’m grateful that he was our dealer and explained every document for me.
Horrible video and GPS interface
by Chad from Waverly
December 6, 2018
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.
Justin and Leland got me a great deal on a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. They are having it delivered to me from over 2 hours away! Really appreciate everything from those to along with Fregia!
Great car with great features
by Nate the Gator from Deltona, FL

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.
From when we came into the dealership...service and helpfulness was the word. We were wanting a safe for her and 2 growing children. We ended up with an Escape SE Sport, brand new and a great price! Shop local.
