We have an empty nest and this is a great car for traveling, excellent gas mileage, great price. The amenities and versatility are top of the line. Hook on Nissan.
Had a great time shopping for a new vehicle. My salesman, Bob Logullo, was wonderful! I truly enjoyed looking at different brands, and comparing cars and SUVs. Matt Greene was super-patient with the paperwork.
Re Buying Process, all the packages are overwhelming - this is a Nissan thing, not a Monken's thing.
Dependable and affordable

As an owner of several Nissan models, I highly recommend this brand for anyone who is interested in buying a car or SUV. They have proven to be dependable and virtually trouble free. I've owned Altima (3 in fact) Maxima and Rouge and never had any problems with them.
A squirrel chewed a wire off and service engine light came on. Monken's service
dept. got me right in. They fixed me up while I waited and had a nice chat with Wes. Shortly I was back on the road. Love those Monkens!
The car is more than I expected

The car is more than I expected in quality and performance. The style is sleek and smooth in appearance. Just what I was looking for.
My husband and I bought a Pacifica from Monken through Scott Marcum. Scott was absolutely a great person to deal with--patient, no pressure, interested in getting us into what we liked, all about serving us. The entire dealership was very friendly and helpful. Respect for the consumer was very evident. Thank you very much!
Lots of space, easy driving, easy to maneuver.

I went in to the dealer, knowing that I wanted a Rogue which is my fifth Nissan. All I wanted for bells and whistles was satellite radio which I got in the whole entertainment system. I am still learning all it can do. The car is SO comfortable, there is a ton of room in the back, I get fantastic mileage and all I usually do is in-town driving. Only less than perfect aspect is the get-up-and-go. Not too great. I get on the interstate every day and I have to make sure I have a big distance to merge because my car doesn't get up to speed very quickly. Still love it!
Our families go way back, so it's not surprising we weren't going to go anywhere else. We didn't see what we wanted of the lot. So Bob, our salesman, found our truck in two days!!. Thanks to Matt, the financial whiz, he got through the paperwork fast. My husband was at work, so he was going back and forth and Matt made it convenient and fast. And we love our new truck. Buy Local, Buy American!!
Reliable and Affordable, truck does it all!

I love my Frontier Pro 4X. This is my second Frontier. I owned my 06 for 8 1/2 years, sold it and bought my 2014 because I was so satisfied and wanted all the bells and whistles! It’s just a fantastic truck! Off road, on road, hauling, pulling, it aimes to please and satisfy.
This was THE BEST car buying experience either of us has ever had. Our salesman Butch was super great and so pleasant to talk to. No high pressure selling or blowing smoke, just straight up facts and no game playing. Kim did our loan paperwork and was totally awesome too. We felt like we got an exceptional deal on the car we wanted, and got a great trade in value on our old car. We would definitely recommend this dealership to family and friends!!!

I love my maxima. It is a beautiful designed vechile for a man or woman. The inside is modernize and innovate with stand features. The outside is luxury with a smooth build for a nice ride.
Matt Reid treated us very well, had car waiting for us, gassed up, and ready to test drive. He was very personable and easy to work with. The used Focus we purchased had a burned out tail light above the rear window and it was fixed without question. Very pleased.

Good car. Good finishing, good fuel economy. Luxery and innovation
Hitech, intelligent all wheel drive. Weel connected. Very easy smartphone connection choice of ineterior and exterior color.
Schmidt Ford had the truck I was looking for. Sales person was Matt Reid he had it ready for a test drive when I got to the dealership. When I purchased the truck Matt answered all questions that I had and explained everything about the truck. Working with Matt was a pleasure and a good experience. He is an asset to Schmidt Ford.

Matt Reid and Schmidt Ford Salem make the differen
by Josh Agne from saint louis missouri

From the first email to the dealer to me signing papers my experience was excellent. I am from St.louis Missouri and I had never even heard of Salem Illinois so I was slightly hesitant to deal with someone out of town. However my mind was eased when I received an almost immediate response from Matt Reid of Schmidt Ford. He was very honest and forthright with details regarding the vehicle I was interested in. I couldn't afford to make more than one trip so all the details of the sale were has he out before I arrived which made it easy for to make the trip. When I got there the dealership was small but clean and professional. Matt Reid was waiting for me with the truck ready to test drive and a big smile. I was really nervous because I had only seen pictures and you never know what was hiding. As soon as I laid eyes on the truck I was overwhelmed with relief and excitement. I test drove it and it ran great! I went to sign papers and j was relieved at how quick and simple schmidt ford was set up to operate. Having my sales person also be the finance person was awesome it saved the extra time and wait and I was already comfortable with Matt and trusted him. Everything with deal was perfect and I will look there first for future purchases! To top it all off Matt called me on Monday after the purx base to make sure I was enjoying the truck and that I was still happy with it. That's pretty cool considering I didn't drop a ton of money there. Even the small people are a big deal at schmidt ford Salem!
Currently driving my 4th Rogue
by Sarge21 from Waterford, Pa

Currently on my 4th Rogue Lease (Midnight Edition).
Great gas mileage and have made 2 trips to Florida from Pennsylvania with my Rogues. The Zero Gravity seats are awesome and had no fatigue issues driving the 20 hours down South. It has plenty of space and leg room to comfortably seat 4 adults. Never had any service issues during the 10 years I have leased this model.
Last winter our area set numerous snowfall records (200+ inches) being close to Lake Erie and I can promise the Rogue can handle any amount of snowfall Mother Nature throws at us..
Good experience. I got mustang at low rate as advertised in cars.com. Overall good experience. I believe they could have given first aid kit or something as a compliment or something. Deal was great.
Great family vehicle. I would highly recommend!

This vehicle has been awesome. We love the look and overall performance and reliability. The only negative would be the paint on the hood has developed some small chipping but other than that I would drive this to the moon and back.
My son did great by calling Kathy for a new Ram 2500 & Grand Caravan. We were referred to her from some people in our town. They were definitely right, very nice girl that wasn’t pushy at all. Thank you Kathy for getting us the deal. We will see you in the future!

1995 Nissan hardbody XE 21yrs traded in for 2013

Turn radius is lame, And now the paint is falling off. I dont think this vehicle will last 21 yrs like my other truck did. It does have lots of power to get up and go. Seems to have electrical issues also. Its only 5 yrs old and well maintained. I have had it 2 yrs ,the paint is coming off in sheets and flakes as i drive. Its black and just the hood right now.
We recently had the pleasure of visiting Schmidt Chevrolet in Mt. Vernon, Illinois looking for a truck. We had the pleasure of meeting Matt King, whom went right to work on finding a few choices within our budget. At the end of the day we drove home a beautiful Silverado. Thanks to obvious teamwork at this dealership, every aspect of the process was impeccable. Sonja in loan financial was extremely talented and kind. Thanks to everyone there for making the real difference. These are real people, honest, kind, and professional. Bonnie and I will be returning for our next purchase or just stopping by to say hey. Thanks again.
