Customer Testimonials for Southern Motor Company

James Braunshausen - 2014 Chevrolet Corvette

"I received a call from the owner Chris with in 1/2 an hour after inquiring about the 2014 corvette . After discussing my options it was decided I would fly out to Charleston to test drive. I flew out the day after the Christmas holiday's and Chris picked me up at my hotel took me out for a test drive came back and he sent me off by myself to drive as long as I wanted too. Never any pressure Great Guy. The Corvette is now being shipped to Minnesota to it's new home. I couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience and the car. Chris has restored my faith in used car salesmen."

Thedora Pugh - 2017 Nissan Sentra

"Well where shall I start, I was referred by a previous buyer to come here. From the moment I walked in, I felt at home with Mark and Chris. I saw something I wanted first but the payments was not in my price range. Then I was told about a 2017 Nissan sentra, they work with the banks to get me approved for the amount can afford. The experience was nice, friendly, caring and understanding from both guys. I can't thank them enough for my purchase. Good business and people"

Cliff Hardaway - 2008 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG

"Bought a 2008 Mercedes E63 AMG sedan from Chris - straight shooter, no BS, very good price. No pressure, not fancy - just the way buying a car should be. Franchise dealers could learn a few things from these guys in terms of how to treat customers!"

James Williamson - 2007 Chevrolet Corvette

"WONDERFUL experience!!! It took longer for us to drive to see the car than to buy and drive off in our new " fun" car. Owner was super friendly and knowledgeable! Fair pricing and very nice inventory. Would definitely buy from again!"

Connor Krekeler - 2016 Nissan Sentra

"I found this place by chance through USAA's car buying service while car shopping for my wife. The vehicle we were interested in was no longer available but when we arrived we were met by Chris, the owner. He took the time to show us similar vehicles and was very knowledgeable. His relaxed attitude put us at ease in little time. Though we didn't end up buying a car that day, I had a feeling I'd be back. My wife and I had a hellish time everywhere else we went but she eventually found what she was looking for despite the salespeople.

A couple months later I was back looking for my own car. I met with Chris again who remembered me and even asked how my family was. Relaxed demeanour still present; he spent a few hours talking with, and showing me cars based on what I explained I wanted. I ended up with a 2016 Nissan Sentra at a price I am very happy with.

I haven't stopped recommending this place since the first visit when I didn't even purchase a vehicle. I am very glad I was able to find what I wanted the second go-around. My wife and I went to four or five other dealerships between the two of us, and all of them just felt like they couldn't wait to gut your wallet and have you thank them for it as they push you to the finance office. Southern Motor Company got my business by treating me and my family with respect while simultaneously remaining relaxed and transparent through business dealings."

Breann Mulligan - 2007 GMC Yukon

"Wonderful experience with Chris and his crew! I won't buy another used car anywhere else now. Chris encouraged us to look everything over and compile a list of things we wanted fixed before we bought our Yukon, so we did, and he has been working hard to get it all taken care of. He has went above and beyond all expectations. He even shared his Disney expertise with me. :) "

Nikki Drayton - 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe

"From the moment of pulling up onto this lot to the happiest moment of me leaving with my new baby(Chevy Tahoe) the whole team here at SMC is outstanding. My salesperson, Mr. Ricky Nelson to the owner, Mr. Chris and lastly but importantly my funny, professional finance guy; it was with great pleasure to transact business....these guys are AMAZING!"

Spencer Smith - 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

"Great experience. Great people at SMC! Drive from Kentucky was well worth it."

Tom Makowski - 2015 Toyota Prius

"Very quick response. We called and went to see it, made a offer and we picked it up the next day. very smooth process! Thanks mark and Chris"

David Blaton - 2010 Lincoln MKX

Shelli Clay - 2015 Ford Mustang GT

"I had great customer service when I went! Chris saved my car for me while refusing other offers. They were fast and great people! I highly recommend this place."

Jenna Weaver - 2007 GMC Yukon Denali XL

"I found a listing with no pictures for a Yukon here. We showed up and were greeted by Mark and Chris. Chris made us feel valued, important, and cared enough to build a relationship with us over the course of the hours that followed. That inevitably lead to us choosing to buy from them.
Chris was detailing the Yukon when we first arrived at SMC and I was exceedingly impressed that not only was the owner investing personal time taking care of the vehicle, but that he took such pride in tearing a part the vehicle to clean and service every inch of it. For him to take the extra effort to clean and service the vehicle showed me that he truly cared about his cars and making sure each one was immaculate for customers. His honest and humorous demeanor made us feel like we were at the right place to find a car.
We felt welcomed and appreciated here! Chris and Mark were upfront and straightforward. They were easy to talk to, quick to answer all of my questions in a complete and professional manner, and they made the whole transaction smooth for us. He worked with us on our trade in and we had a blast getting to know them and were proud to give them our business.
I've not bought from a small local car business before. I usually prefer the large dealerships. I know what I would have experienced at a large dealership--a pressured quick turnaround transaction. I am so thankful we found Southern Motor Company! It truly makes a difference when you have people working with what they love and who take pride in excellence and service.

Please visit Chris and Mark! We are happy to support their business and we had an absolutely excellent experience!"

Sean Kennedy - 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe

"Great experience!! They worked with us every step of the way. They stayed after hours to allow is to look at a SUV and then met us before they opened to sign the paperwork. I would definitely buy from them again."

Wes Furlong - 2013 Dodge Journey

"Having purchased many vehicles in my life, this was by far the easiest, most convenient, and overall most satisfying car buying experience I've ever had. Went in on Saturday with my wife, 4 year old, and our 3 week old to look at what became our 2013 Dodge Journey. After looking for weeks at similar year, make, and model, this was the one that I had my eye on for multiple reasons: 1) cleanest one I saw writhing a 200 mile radius of me 2) lowest mileage 3) closest in proximity to me 4) had all of the features we were after. Walking up to the vehicle on the lot, the finance manager, mark, and then the owner, Chris came out to meet us (with the key already in hand) and said here you go, check it out and take as much time as you need but let us know if you have any questions or want to take it for a spin! After looking the vehicle over for at least 30 minutes, I took it for a short drive, found nothing wrong with it, and began our process. We traded in my wife's 2010 Honda Insight and Chris gave us far above what we expected to get for it. While doing our paperwork and getting everything switched over to the dodge, Chris and mark were both very patient and accommodating to our kids fussing and being antsy and not having all of our ducks in a row but never once put us off or seemed bothered or inconvenienced by it. All in all, we drove our new vehicle off the lot elated and overwhelmed with excitement at the most stress free car buying experience we could have hoped for. We HIGHLY recommend them for anyone's next vehicle and I will be using them again when I look to upgrade my old beat up work vehicle in the future. Thanks guys!!!"

Sydney Saunders - 2010 Honda Insight

"Had a fantastic experience, very helpful and friendly staff helped my husband and I get a fantastic car. It was a better car buying experience than I could've hoped for!"

Clyde Grant - 2003 Mercedes Benz S430

"Would deal with them again. Very good experience."

Byron Graham - N/A N/A N/A

"Great dealership, great staff, great cars, and great prices!!"

Tina Bailey - 2007 GMC Yukon

"I had the pleasure of spending the day with Mark and Chris at Southern motor company. They're not pushy and wasn't in a hurry to have me sign paperwork. I really thought I'd never be able to get the SUV I wanted but Mark and Chris were confident that they could get me in the SUV I wanted. Only a few hours later and I was driving away in my GMC Yukon. Thank you guys for everything. I'll definitely be telling my friends about you."

Andrew Stafford - 2007 Mercedes Benz C230

"Southern motor company is one of the best car lot I have been to in along time, great service, friendly,and let me not forget they work real fast to get you in a vehicle of choice I would recommend people if your looking for a car that has low miles and run excellent,go to southern motor company"

David Jackson - 2007 Chevrolet Corvette


Karen Monahan - 2007 Ford Mustang

"I LOVE MY MUSTANG! These guys sell cars because they love cars, they know cars, and they know how to find great deals. Isn't that who you want to buy a car from? Plus they are great people and take care of you. Every time I've called Chris he picks up. What owner does that? I'm really happy I got my car here and I'd buy another car from them in a second"

Jim Rothwell - 2014 Jaguar F-Type

"Chris at Southern Motor Company treated me like an old friend, offering me lunch, returning my rented car for me, giving me a car cover (which I'll be returning) just to protect my car seat from a piece of luggage, etc., but more importantly, he treated me extremely fairly on price - showing me evidence of the only $200 profit on my $54k+ purchase. And that only confirmed my country-wide search for this great deal. Couldn't have had a better car buying experience than at Southern Motor Company!"

Tammy McCottry - 1997 Lexus LS400

"I love my Lexus! Chris you are phenomenal! You have a great staff and dealership. Thank you Ricky for providing excellent service! My car buying experience was the BEST! Thank you for helping me find the right vehicle for my needs."

"Just bought an Audi, the process was quick and painless, the price was fantastic, and the guys were friendly and helpful. And I got free warranty for three months, 10/10"

Adam Maltby - 2007 Toyota Tacoma

"Best car buying experience I have ever had. Sat down with the owner and felt like I was talking to an old friend. Got an awesome price on a Tacoma and left there very happy. All the employees were very friendly and laid back, no pressure at all from anyone. I would highly recommend this dealer to anyone looking for a good deal on a used car."

Justin Cordova - 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe

"Dealership was on a small lot but still very nice. Went on a Saturday and they only had two people working so it took a little longer than I had hoped but once I was seen everything was very quick and professional."

Harold Galinski - 2006 Cadillac SRX

"Purchasing my Cadillac SRX at Southern Motor Company was a surprisingly great experience. They had a good selection of what appeared to be well maintained vehicles. Everyone from sales consultant to finance department has gone beyond my expectations."

"I needed to find a car for my daughter and found something @ Southern Motors. I received and email response promptly after my inquiry and decided to go take a look.

They answered all my questions and cleaned the car up nicely with a full tank of gas included. I would definitely recommend as a place to check out."

Kelly Richardson - 2003 Hummer H2

"Very supportive and open to financing. Inspection of the vehicle at a GM/Chevrolet dealership and off-setting price for purchase settled the decision on purchase."

Fred Barnett - 2006 Cadillac SRX

It has been a great buying experience and also a fun one plus I got it at a great price. Gary G."

"Chris at Southern Motors was pleasant and accommodating. I arrived without an appointmenmt, but he spent time and energy with me. He answered all my questions and showed me the car I was interested in inside and out. Though we couldn't strike a deal, I would go back (75 miles away) if another of his cars interested me. Good luck to him. I like to see a little guy make it. SWS"
