An excellent customer-directed experience in purchasing a new vehicle that we have experienced in quite some time. The process was extremely smooth, informative and efficient. Jeff Harvey, Chris Blades and The Entire Kent County Motors family were very accommodating in making sure that we were satisfied with our purchase. It was refreshing to work with a group of people who truly believe in their product and want you to be satisfied with your purchase. The Whitby family has been serving the area for many years and hoping for many more. We will definitely be back for our next vehicle purchase and would recommend the dealership to anyone looking for a non-stressful vehicle-buying experience with the most knowledgeable, personable and professional team.

I ordered a new truck in December 2021. After all the delays and constraints, I finally took delivery in June 2022. Without going into further details, Jeff kept me posted every step of the way. I'm sure he got tired of my endless texts and phone calls but was always patient. He explained everything each step of the way including the delivery process. I got everything I wanted in the end and it was worth the wait. I can't thank everyone enough at the dealership for always being courteous and knowledgeable. Special thanks as well to Jay Whitby and Shawn Wallace. These three gentlemen made sure I was happy. Anyone looking for a vehicle, go see them! Thanks again. I love my new Sierra!

This is the first time I have had such a positive experience with a car dealership. The sales staff is knowledgeable about their products. I was able to tell Shawn exactly what I wanted in the car itself and the financing I required. I had a good selection of vehicles to choose from, in my price range. Shawn was able to discuss each one in detail so I was able to pick the best one for me. The finance dept was able to get me the best deal with the applicable rebates and financing. There was no pressure from anyone, only help and suggestions I will definitely recommend this dealership to my friends and family

Kent County Motors made my car buying experience so easy! Everyone was so nice. Matt made sure the car that I wanted was ready for me when I arrived, Shawn Wallace helped me confirm that it was everything I wanted and more! He was so patient with me and made sure that I was fully educated in what I was signing up for. Thank you all for making sure that my first car buying experience was not an all day process, your hard work is so appreciated! I would HIGHLY recommend that anyone just starting out or even looking to buy another car make Kent County Motors their first choice!

Hands down I had the best experience with Chris. He was honest, up front, identified things about the vehicle that I didn’t notice (small chip mark from shipping on door edge) and helped me schedule all of the fixes etc with zero stress on my end. If you want a vehicle with a stress free and honest environment I couldn’t recommend a better individual to work with.

Looking for a car can be a difficult, tiring, and stressful process. However, my experience with Christopher Blades at Kent County Motors was nothing less of marvelous. I told him a little about myself and what I wanted to get into, and he did the rest. He picked out the PERFECT car for me. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable and easily answered any question or concern I had, but he was kind with amazing customer service. This car purchase was by far the best one I've had. I would definitely come back and/or refer family/friends to Kent County Motors or Chris again. THANK YOU!

This was a fantastic truck buying experience!!! From the arrival meeting with our Sales Consultant Rodney Nickles all the way through to the final meeting with the Business Manager, Shawn Wallace and all the other friendly Team Kent County Motors personnel. Rodney went way beyond with his OUTSTANDING Customer Service, his friendliness, honesty, courteous and professional working through all my requests/add-ons (upgraded brakes, tonneau cover, floor liners, etc.) to the truck. He communicated regularly with me from the time I left the lot on our initial meeting all the way to delivery (which was nearly a month). This truck was selected from an in-transit list, and when delivered it was better than expected, thank you Rod for all the recommendations, knowledge and information you conveyed during the selection of the truck and all the way to delivery. I would HIGHLY recommend Kent County Motors and especially the 5-star PLUS truck buying experience with Rodney Nickles. I absolutely love my 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited Denali.

Jay is a true asset to the dealership, is very knowledgeable with the product and has been a pleasure to work with over the years.
