"Very Satisfied!"

I just wanted to take the time to drop you a note and express my satisfaction with my van purchase.  I have purchased several vehicles there and I am very satisfied with my Sales Associate, Tim McIntyre as well as Finance Manager, Teresa Smith.  I have always been pleased there and will continue to support your dealership when the need arises in the future.

"Honest Dealership"

"We wanted to express our appreciation for your dealership.  You convinced us to drive 3 1/2 hours to purchase a jeep and said it would be wourth our while, and it was.  You provided good honest information and put us in a vehicle that we are very happy with that was in our price range.  It was well worth the drive!  We were treated very well and appreciated the follow up to make sure we were happy."

"The reason I shop at Shields Auto Center is simple."

The reason I shop at Shields Auto Center is simple. They have a good selection of new and used automobiles at good prices. Shields provide excellent service before, during and after the sale. In fact only Shields had ever asked me, long after a purchase had been made, if the automobile was giving me good service. Folks, this is a dealership I can count on.

"Overall Performance and experience is a TEN!"

Shields Auto Center is friendly and professional.  Their sales associates are knowledgeable about the vehicles.  Tim McIntyre was great!  He even did flips and played with our three year old so we could do paperwork!  Overall performance and experience is a TEN!

"I will go nowhere else"

"After the treatment we recieved at Shields I will go nowhere else to even look for a vehicle or to get service done. After giving up on trying to find the right vehicle we were told by a family member who had just purchased a vehicle here that they might have what we were looking for, and they did. They had the truck waiting for us to look at when we showed up(in the snow), and even went and got another truck for us to test drive. After deciding on which truck we wanted the rest of the deal was very painless, and no running back and forth. All of the staff went above and beyond to get us a great deal and get it finished before going home. Thank you for all your work to get my wife the truck she has been dreaming of."

"Teresa in financing was excellent and got us a great rate."

We found a Durango Shields had listed on that we were interested in. I made the short drive to Rantoul and met dealer Terry"TNT" and took a test drive. After a short, no pressure negotiation process we worked out a fair deal and I was on my way. Teresa in financing was excellent and got us a great rate. Thanks "TNT" and Teresa..will do business again!

"Worth The Drive"

Everyone at the dealership was nice to me. Terry and Vern were pleasant to discuss the vehicle with. Roger the sales manager greeted me in a very friendly manner. Teresa made the financial aspect of buying the vehicle as efficient as possible by explianing options to me. Terry took me back to the parts manager Rick and he looked up some parts for me even though it was after noon on a Saturday and he already had clocked out. The Vehicle was clean after the detail guy went over it. I am now driving a new Ford F-150. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience and I look forward to working with the Shields Team.

"Beyond Expectations!"

John Weir has gone beyond expectations-sold us 2 cars instead of the one we came in to look at.  He did an excellent job presenting the cars and answering all of our questions!
