"No Pressure"

Joe made me feel very comfortable and welcome when I visited the Shimkat dealership.  He was laid back and with no pressure.  Everyone worked hard to get me a really good deal on my Cruze!  I will recommend Shimkat Motors to all my family and friends!!

"I felt very welcome"

I had a good visit and Dave showed all the systems and put my phone on Bluetooth.  Tim, The Finance Manager explained and answered all my questions.  I felt very welcome and I would recommend Shimkat Motors to my family and friends.

"Highly Recommend Shimkat Motors"

Even though Joe was new to the sales arena he was generous in offering to get the answers to all my questions.  He made me very comfortable.  The smile on his face when I made the purchase made it worth the price!  I highly recommend Shimkat Motors - I believe in buying from local businesses.  Keep the money in Fort Dodge!!

"Great Service"

Shimkat Motors is an excellent dealer.  Rick Scott was my salesman,  I bought my last Jeep Liberty new from them. I just bought a new 2014 Jeep Cherokee Sport. The dealership is 5 stars in my eyes and I recommend it to my friends.
Peggy Lawson from Fort Dodge

"Buying my first car on my own"

This is my first experience buying a car on my own.  Rick and Shimkat Motors treated me with respect and kindness and helped guide me through the process.  I felt very comfortable dealing with Rick.  He was very honest with answering all my questions. He even came to my home and picked me up so I could drive my new car home today!  Tim Douglass, the Finance Manager was very down to earth and not pushy at all.  I will be recommending Rick and the Shimkat Team to my friends and family.
Ronda Sorensen from Badger, IA

"Everyone treated us very well"

We have bought several cars through the years from Shimkat Motors and I actually bought my very first car here.  Everyone treated us very well, with respect and tried very hard to make sure we were satisfied.  A friendly working atmosphere.  We will be coming back to buy our future vehicles from Shimkat.

"Great customer service"

chief from Newton, Kansas

 Even though I did not purchase a vehicle from them they were willing to help and they were quite honest with me in what they could and would not do so I knew where I stood right from the beginning. If the distance was not seven hours away maybe we could have worked out a deal.
