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!!!
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.
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've traveled some 300 miles from Chicago to pick up a truck from Shottenkirk's. I had a good feeling about this deal simply based on couple of phone conversations. They've been holding my truck for me based on given word, picked me up from the train, offered a hot lunch. I'm absolutely happy with level of attention given to me as well as quick and professional handling of all purchase related procedures. Would definitely recommend.
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.
My wife and I recently purchased a 2005 Scion with the help Jeremy Anderson. The purchasing process was made easy and smooth with Jeremy's excellent customer service skills! Thanks again for all your help!! We love the vehicle.

If you are looking to get into a new or used car, you need to talk to this guy. RICHARD SANTIAGO. This guy will bend over backwards to get you the deal you want. We purchased a 2014 Dodge Caravan from them. We told him the payments we wanted, and my wife was dead set on them. Don't know how he did it, but he must be related to David Copperfield or something, we walked out of the dealership with the vehicle we wanted and felt good about the whole transaction. He actually made me realize that there are decent car salesmen still around. Thank you Richard Santiago.
Martin made this buying experience comfortable and fun and was very personable. He didn't high pressure us, but he did point out all the wonderful things about the Toyota we were interested in. He was patient in answering all of our questions and treated us like we were his only customers. He did not get in a hurry and stayed late the day we bought the car so we could finish the deal and drive it home that night. David in the finance department was also very pleasant and friendly and extremely efficient. The manager introduced himself to us and made sure we were having a good buying experience.
For the first time ever, i was treated with respect as a woman buying a vehicle at shottenkirk Toyota! I really appreciated the kindness and respect they showed me thru the whole buying process. They were very nice. Even offered me snacks lol. Thank you for everything jeremy!
We stopped on our way into town and drove away with a new car because Jennifer at Schottenkirk was so accommodating and not pushy. We had a very positive experience all the way around with all we works with.
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!

We dealt with Eric Hess when we recently purchased a white 2014 Camry, and had a wonderful experience. They are hands down the most helpful and most courteous people we dealt with while looking for a car. They were upfront and informative throughout the process, and never pressured us into doing anything. They let you drive the cars without coming along so you can actually discus amongst yourselves without having to try and be polite to salesman. I couldn't recommend this dealership more to anyone looking to buy a high quality used car in Quincy.
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 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.
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.
