Everything I wanted in one. Jeep Cherokee limited edition 2019........big screen towing group super full sunroof. Heated leather seats navigator....I love this car Atcthe time that everyone stay home from snow we had fun out .....
Our experience with Santee Automotives was awesome this time as it was several years ago. we would return again if neccesarry they are very trusting and up front with our needs. We have bought from Columbia and Sumter before and we never had a a good experience before. We love our 2012 Nissan and most of all the comfort and 2ndly the gas milege. Thank you so much God Bless all of you!
Most reliable SUV I've owned

Three years owned it and aside from oil changes, no money was stuck into it. Liked it so much, we decided to lease a 2019 Cherokee. In the past owned 2 Lexus, Chevy SUV's and the Jeep was ahead of them. EXCEPT for the leg room in the back seat.
Called Santee Motors that morning about a car I saw on there site and spoke to Rosa went in at 9AM that morning and she ensured me I would be riding by noon and I must say she kept her word and by 1130 that morning I was in my car. Thanks Rosa
Very comfortable and serves my needs

The vehicle is very comfortable and has what we were looking for at an affordable price. It’s “cool” looking also for a gramma! Working with Kurt. Great experience.
After doing a little window shopping and just a quick browse of your website I saw a car I wanted......
I called Rosa knowing my credit was probably not strong enough for a car loan but it was worth a try.....
Rosa took my application over the phone and in 30 minutes later she called so that I can come pick up my car.....
They staff was extremely nice to us and it didn't take all day.....
I have since sent several friends to see Rosa at Santee Automotive and like me they all left happy.....
THANKS AGAIN ROSA.....MY #1 SALESPERSON
This is my first off road vechile.

Previous to my 2017 Rubicon I owned a 2010 Liberty. It was good off road but the Rubicon takes off road experience to a new level. This is a sophisticated machine. I am not a rock hopper so I don't see myself spending money on lift kits. I can tell you that I will spend a lot of time taking moderate trails and climbing so testy hills through out Southern New Mexico.
I was given a very quick appointment,(they were actually booked up, but fit me in) after telling the owner that I had well exceeded my 'after oil light' came on miles limit. Quick service and very pleased
Will certainly go to to Prothro Chevrolet for all of me needs from here on in !
Very capable car

A great car for climbing mountains on the weekend and commuting to work throughout the week. Only complaint is limited legroom in the back seat.
Great service and friendly staff. At no point did I feel pressured to make a decision the sales representative that assisted me was knowledgable and professional. I would definitely recommend this dealership to others looking to buy a vehicle in Sumter, SC.

Unreliable car prone to breakdown
by Ahmetcan Caglayan from Jacksonville, Florida

I loved this Jeep when I bought it. But, the amount of repairs on it is beyond reasonable. I've had to completely replace the engine, now I have to have the transmission rebuilt. There's constant problems left and right. Stay away from this model. It's been more of a headache than a blessing to have this car. I've owned it for 7 years, 7 miserable years. Repair after repair.
Scott Will is an awesome place to buy a car. Randy Nicks made it quick and easy. Everyone is friendly and I will definitely come back to them for my future vehicles.
Easy to Drive

The V6 provides plenty of power still averaging 18mpg in the city. The auto idle shutdown takes a little getting used to at stoplights and I have had to watch my head getting in and out due to the angle on the A pillar, but drives great, real smooth and responsive.
My 2018 Jeep Compass Limited left me stranded twice. Both times it would not start. They were unable to find the problem. Two trips to the dealer. First time it had a little over 200 miles on it second time 3,500 miles on it. Battery is good, charges, mechanic thinks there is something that is causing the battery to lose charge, but, is unable to figure it out. I am now involved with FCA Customer Care . Hoping for a fix to the car,as, it is fun to drive when it works. Comfortable for me , fun panoramic sunroof, and a nice radio. Though being worried every time I go to start it , is not a nice way to feel. This is a safety issue. I would not buy this car again...Too many hassles with the car and aspects of having to work with FCA. I am very happy to read of all the people that are loving their cars. It gives me hope..Be sure you purchase the extra rental policy with the car..
Service was incredibly great, explained the situation with our vehicle and it was taken care of, with precision, My thanks to the mechanic he's been really really great .Mr.Weberwe can never thank you, my Queen is happy with the results you really came through.
What I was Looking for

January 6, 2019
Very nice truck. What I was looking for at a price I could Afford. Very nice design and loaded with features that I wanted in my next vehicle.
I am one to send hours and weeks researching the pros, and cons before making a major purchase. I can truly say I couldn’t have purchase a better vehicle from any where in South Carolina. The folks at Sumter Chrysler Dodge Jeep are awesome. They answered every question I had and made sure this vehicle was right for me. Hats Off to Sumter Chrysler Dodge Jeep and a special thanks to my salesman Ric.
6th Grand Cherokee's we have owned. Great suv.

We look at other makes and come back to Jeep. Has a nice ride, dependable, lots of safety features. Quick response when needed. Great in all kinds of weather.
My grandmother and I visited Sumter Dodge and Ryan Stukes was VERY helpful in assisting us with selecting the right vehicle. He gave us different options to go with and was very much wonderful with answering any question we needed! I will gladly ask for him when I return to purchase!
Pretty good so far
by Lynnzo from Stevensville, ON

Only owned for 2 months so far. Only complaint so far is that the language on the dash changed to Italian on its own. Apparently this is an ongoing problem with this Jeep. Changed it back easily enough but hope not to have this happen often.
Ryan Stukes was amazing! Listened to what I wanted and needed, then delivered! He made the entire process very easy and I was thoroughly impressed with his knowledge of their vehicles.

Jeep Grand Cherokees are the perfect combination of luxury and utility. You can take them to nice events, or on camping trips and never feel like you have the wrong vehicle. It sports the nicest interior features and has plenty of room for a family who has a lot of stuff.
Tony Singleton gave me and my husband a great customer service. He was very helpful in our decession on purchasing our new car. We will definitely be back to purchase our car after we discuss on what we are going to do.
Love the way it feels and drives.

I had no intention of buying a new car until I drove a rental Compass and just couldn't believe how it drove. I highly recommend test driving this car if you are thinking of buying a new vehicle.
Me. Singleton sold me a great vehicle for my wife’s Xmas. Couldn’t be happier with the customer service he gave.
we almost everything about our 2018 Jeep Compass
by Campman1965 from Bethel , Pa.
January 12, 2019
Everything is great except for one thing. We dislike the stop/start feature. It does not save gas like they say it does and the fact it has to be hard on the engine and the starter and the fact if the system fail to start back up , it may leave a family stuck in a dangerous traffic situation...I was not use to it and gave it too much acceleration and nearly rear ended the car in front of me..... This device is a big joke.......
My wife and I bought a new 2017 Charger SXT Plus from the Sumter dealership in August. This was the most pleasant experience we've ever had buying a car- and we're almost 60 years old. George Mitchell (Sales Manager) quoted us a price OVER THE PHONE for this car that included everything-even taxes and title...everything. The final price out the door was exactly the one quoted by Mr. Mitchell. Ron Heller(Salesman) was very thorough and friendly in showing us the car, and we test drove it. From Megan(Meghan?) at the front desk to the wonderful finance man everything was exceptional start to finish.
We haven't used the service folks yet. Don't know where the negative reviews for these good folks came from, but they almost kept me from considering going to this dealership...Boy that would've been a bad mistake!

When the Jeep is running well, I like the way it handles. However, I did not expect to deal with a defective transmission which shows itself with jerky/clunky shifting in low gears. Also, radiator came apart and needed to be replaced. Battery needed to be replaced, even though the battery indicator gauge showed it was good. It's been towed twice b/c of the problems, at my expense.
The longer we own it the more we love it. it gets good mpg its very quiet luxurious well put together and we feel save driving it.a very solidly made car.
