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.
Wish I still had it!

Sweet style and practical use for hard work. The miles per gallon were nice especially for Highway use. The four wheel drive was a blessing too.
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

I originally had a 2015 terrain which was AWD and loved it. After leasing my current 2017 Terrain - which is FWD -I feel the car is tailored for a man. The finger holds on the steering wheel, for example, are sized for a man - my hand just doesn’t grip properly. My next vehicle I would like to find something that rides a little less like a “truck” and the Bluetooth has never worked properly which was used by Gavin as a selling point.
My wife Lindsay and I had been looking for a car for months. Numerous issues with multiple unnamed dealers. All the other dealerships were pushy, rude or just plain not listening. We have known what we wanted for a while and no one had what we wanted for the price we wanted to pay!
Then today we found the car we wanted online and it turned out to be at Hess Auto Agency. Eric Hess was great! He was friendly, polite, and easy to talk to. My wife and I felt quite comfortable there and did not feel any pressure. We bought our awesome new 2016 Dodge Durango today for exactly the price we wanted. Eric worked with us and walked us through all the ins and outs.
I highly recommend this dealership for a no hassle and great experience. Eric was great!

Two week review
by SC_Trucker from Fountain Inn, SC

I have only owned my 2016 GMC Terrain Denali v6 for two weeks now but I absolutely love it! It has a comfortable ride and plenty of room for 4 adults. It can hold 5 people, but to get three in the back I'd think they would have to be slimmer adults, or kids, to sit comfortably. The middle console is really deep, up to your elbow deep. I'm tall and with the seat back you have to reach for the door controls. I'm constantly letting down the back window by mistake when I'm trying to let down the driver side window. The remote start and heated seats are wonderful on cold days! There is a slight vibration when turning the wheel from park. I took it to a dealership where they told me this is a known issue with the V6 Terrain (the 4 cylinder doesn't have this issue apparently). Other than that, so far so good! It has back up camera, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, collision warning with brake assist and other safety features. My other vehicle is almost 15 years old so it's taking me a while to get used to all this new technology!
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.

I believe this car, if taken care of properly and purchased from a reliable source would be a fantastic SUV for any family. If buying used definitely have it checked by a trusted mechanic before forking over the money.
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.

Lousy... would never purchase GM again. Called GM, the people I talked to were no interested I what i was talking about. They were pretty uninformed about the vehicle
Trina is awesome in the service department. She knows my name, gets me in for an appointment within 1 or 2 days, works with me to describe the problem with my car, always calls right away when she knows what the problem is and the costs and calls me as soon as my car is ready for pick up.
Safe and great in snow

This SUV met all of my needs. Safe, comfortable, durable, good lines, attractive interior, excellent in heavy, slippery or deep snow, large cargo and comfortably fits seven (7) adults.
Internet Sales Mgr. and Salesperson were fantastic. Buying process was good with one exception. Finance Mgr. spent 20 minutes trying to sell me an extended warranty when I stated at the outset that I usually keep a car less than 5 years and factory warranty covers all of my needs. Extra 12 mo./15K miles on select items (tire damage, window chips, wheel damage, and lost/stolen key fob) are covered with no extra fees. A very pleasant surprise!!!!!! I hope I never need to take advantage of this benefit.
The best truck I ever owned
by Kennyrooh from Collinsville, Illinois

My 2017 GMC Sierra SLT is the best truck I ever owned. The headlights are very bright making it easier to see at night with the automatic highbeams. The Bose radio has excellent sound. I average 20 miles to a gallon in the city. The seats are very comfortable and the back seat in the crew cab has plenty of room for adults. The interior is very quite. The parking sensors and lane guidance system work very well. Yes, I love this truck.
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 Pickup drives Wonderful I Truly recommend this vehicle to anyone interested in buying a Pickup truck, good on gas suspension is sound good power! Plus Great Look, The people at Capital Auto was very Professional!!!
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.

Strong work pickup , comfortable travelling pickup. It covered all of our needs. Towing livestock to long drives on vacation, It is a great truck!
I would recommend Gem City to anyone looking for a new car.
Love the GMC brand

I’ve had the vehicle for a short while. Thus far it’s smooth sailing except for the Driver’s side seat warmer.
We’ll see how much of pain in the patootskie it is to get it rectified but overall I’m happy with the vehicle.
I’ve received a lot of compliments on it and am proud of the image it portrays for my General Contracting company.
From the time I walked in to the time I left, I had a great experience from the gang here.
Love this truck
by Jeanasfun from La Crosse, WI

Overall this truck is fantastic and very comfortable. The only thing I don't like is the 6 speed transmission, but you can't get away from that anymore in any truck. The reasoning I'm sure is to get better mileage, but it only really helps on the highway. In town they just seem to shift up too fast so if you need to get on it, there is a bit of delay and it feels cumbersome. Some have 8 or more gears now and I can't even imagine how they respond. I'd prefer to suffer the mileage on the highway to go back or a 4 speed transmission. I love the step in the bumper to get in the back as well as the lighting in the truck bed. Really everything else on this truck is beautiful.
GMC is still not able to fully fix the horn. It is working easier but not 100%. This is not Poage's fault.
Drive like a king with the family

It’s a 2012 Yukon XL Denali. I mean there’s not a lot more to want. I just took a a 22 hour trip one way with three girls and the wife. Two Tv screens, comfortable seats, with 80/20 bench second row, 13 year old had the whole third row to herself and they were all comfortable. I’m glad I bought the XL because we still had plenty of room for our baggage. Enough about that let’s get to me. I didn’t hear any whining or crying because the kids were all comfortable and entertained and could control their climate control. So definitely a plus for me. For me and the wifey separate audio surround sound Bose from the rear with hard drive, Xm, iPod, hands free Bluetooth, all controlled from the steering wheel and dual climate control up front. Air conditioned seats that rejuvenate you after sitting too long but don’t leave them on too long or you’ll be a popsicle. Sunroof for to pop open in the rain for instant fresh air. Blind spot detection for ease of changing lanes and back up camera. Oh and my favorite part the 6.2 litre engine that would send a mustang quivering in the corner from being spanked by an 8 passenger vehicle. I never once was sore the whole trip and enjoyed the whole trip.
The last thing I will say is with all the creature comforts, the active auto ride load leveling suspension, and the 400 hp engine, it looks amazing and makes you feel the same driving it or standing by it. Total package when it comes to family
The most professional and knowledgeable place to but a car. This is our 4th vehicle we have purchased from Poage and we would not go anywhere else! They make buying a car the easiest process. Someone is always there to greet you. They go above and beyond to make it happen. Excellent place!

Smooth ride and performance
Good mpg for size of vehicle
Seating for 8
Great family vehicle for anything from travel to around the town
Would recommend this vehicle over and over
Very nice bunch of salespeople. We live about 75 miles from their dealership so we did not know anyone. Found the car we wanted, color motor and interior color, on the internet. Drove down, talked ,looked the car over, talked some more, went to dinner, came back and finally struck a deal. I found the people very eager to help us get the car we wanted. Great dealer, would recommend them to anyone.
