Salesman Eric Hess was the epitome of customer service. Helpful and professional, Eric really assisted us to find a vehicle that we were looking for. Our first choice had just received an offer in on it so Eric suggested a few more in our price range. He never pushed us to go beyond our budget, but listened to what we were looking for and was respectful of our financial limit.
We never purchased from Hess before, but some friends had and reported a great experience. Additionally, our mechanic said that Hess was one of the few honest used car lots in the Quincy area. That meant a lot to us.
The other attractive thing about Hess is that they do actively maintain their web site and the vehicles on there have great photos and descriptions. That was really helpful as we researched website after website. Some places no longer had a car available or only one or two photos. Hess had multiple shots and angles (read: nothing to hide) and their inventory was very accurate.
Overall, Hess was great to work with and if we are ever in the market again, we won't waste our time with other places. We'll be back and we'd recommend them.
Have truly enjoyed driving this SUV.

It was a solid - well made vehicle. I enjoyed driving this on long trips. I felt save and a good vision of traffic - ahead.
We were shopping for a newer low mileage truck and Hess Auto Sales had exactly what suited our needs. It was very refreshing to transact a purchase without encountering the games and hassles of some local "big box" dealerships. Kirk, Eric and Jeff were very helpful, very fair and a genuine pleasure to do business with. We highly recommend Hess Auto Sales

We love the comfort and all the bells and whistles
My husband likes the twin turbo for speed
I love the heated seats and park assist
In my role with the City of Quincy, I’m frequently frustrated by our inability to reward our taxpayers by buying locally...I’m very proud today to look at a purchase order for two new Police vehicles being purchased at Gem City Ford. Quoting from the letter from our PD to the committee, “...for many reasons t vehicle) most liked by our officers”
The cherry on top of the sundae is that we get them frquincyom Gem City Ford!!!
This is the 4th new Ford I have purchased.

Excellent in all aspects. Rides great, has every feature I can think of. It is a beautiful SUV and I am so proud to drive it.
The ride is smooth and quiet. Easy to work with the technology. Extremely comfortable. I own a 99 Expedition, 08 F150, and now a 13 Explorer. Everyone I own has been good to me. Extremely reliable. And great for everything I do.
Professional, expedient, friendly. What more can you ask for.

Great interior comfort- was looking for a vehicle that for a man ^'^" and a woman 5' The accomodations are perfect for both of us!.
Good power available when needed. Pretty paint - looks black, but is midnight green.
Has just enough ammenties- we're not fond of all the "bells and whistles" Couldn't be happier.
I worked with Andy. He was very upfront and willing to work with us and make sure that we were satisfied. They agreed to include a back up camera with the purchase price when we expressed concern about the vehicle we were interested in not having one.
Most reliable car I've owned

This car is spacious, love the interior and exterior. It is perfect for our family of 5. It is what we were looking for in a car. It is 4x4 which is perfect during snow days.
So I stopped into Shottenkirk Chevrolet after checking around on different websites and receiving a call from a salesman (which is kind of sneaky you having to give your phone number and contact information to just LOOK at the price of a vehicle) I went to the dealership the following afternoon when I got off of work and was there for about 3 hours which included a test drive. I did NOT purchase the vehicle that night because one, they were not close enough to MY bottom dollar per month and the interest rates were way too high. So, I told them that I wanted the truck, but did NOT need the truck and if they can't get even CLOSE to what I am willing to pay I am leaving. Well, the next day, I went back after work and they did JUST that! They got well within my price range and my interest rate after MULTIPLE calls to several financial institutions. Needless to say I am VERY happy. The only problem I had after my purchase was I needed to immediately fill the tank because it was close to empty. I am hoping that today when I go back, that they can at least give me a voucher as I should NOT have had to fill up right after purchasing the vehicle, it should have had a free tank with my purchase. I found that out after speaking to the GM at Shottenkirk Toyota a few days after my purchase.
One of best suv I get

The vehicle is in a very good condition, what I mean like a buyers we get what we can support right , we have no regrets we get a very nice suv in all the ways thanks for the patience and for all the good ways your guys tried us
I searched all over the internet for a low-mileage used Impala. We drove from Kansas City because Shottenkirk had the best selection of what I was looking for. Our salesman Shannon was honest, respectful and didn't fool around playing games. Gave us their bottom line price right away and saved a bunch of back and forth haggling which I dislike. This dealership truly exemplifies "drive a little, save a lot." It was a very pleasant buying experience.

We love our car so far. Great room for me, my wife and kids. Plenty of room to hold all of our sports stuff as well. Great handling and the gas mileage is real good for the size vehicle.
After several issues at other dealerships and several long hours this one came through above and beyond what was expected. The staff was friendly helpful and went out of there way to help us find what we needed.

Very comfortable, good performance, nice amenities. Having had the previous version of Sync, the Sync 3 on this model is MILES ahead in user-friendliness and options. The vehicle is very quiet on the highway and excellent on road trips. Very happy with the purchase!
I would recommend Gem City to anyone looking for a new car.
Ill never lease this one again
by Leotis from LIC NY

I leased the 2013 Explorer Sport. It looked great. It had the 3.5L Ecoboost. Never had a problem with the engine. The rotors however would warp consistently. I had alot of overstear. I brought the vehicle back at lease end with under 28K miles. The front seats looked like they were 10 years old. Just worn down. at 6 months before lease end the drivers side door panel had a 2 inch crack in the seam exposing the foam underneath. The dealer pushed it off and didnt want to repair it. Its a good thing I leased it. Never again...
I had an outstanding buying experience. The pricing was fair and the staff easy to work with. I highly recommend Shottenkirk Toyota for your next purchase.

I have purchased many vehicles and nothing else compares to my Ford explorer!! It is a smooth ride. The interior is so roomy and comfortable. The third row seat allows me to transport the entire family. Love the safety features.
