History

Established in 1982.

Dave Gill Chevrolet, located in Whitehall near Port Columbus Airport, has been proudly serving Central Ohio as a family-owned dealership since 1982.  When Dave and Nancy Gill purchased Avery Pontiac that year, the dealership was among the oldest automotive dealerships in the country.  Later, Dave Gill Pontiac added a GMC franchise and began selling new trucks.  But the biggest change for the dealership came in March 2009, when Dave Gill purchased a Chevrolet franchise.  Dave Gill Chevrolet was born.  In June 2011, Dave Gill became the first dealership in Central Ohio to adopt Chevrolet's new image for its retail stores.  The showroom, customer lounge area, restrooms, and service drive have been completely renovated, making Dave Gill the most modern and exciting retail space for Chevrolet customers in the region.

In the midst of these changes, Dave Gill Chevrolet has remained committed to a single, unwavering concept -- making our customers happy!

Reviews on Dave Gill Chevrolet

I brought my 2014 Chevy Volt in for scheduled maintenance. I loved the ease of scheduling through the website. I choose to wait on the car and was back on the road in just a little over an hour - awesome.

The waiting area was vey nice and I really appreciated the Keurig Coffee and assortment of flavors - nice perk for those that choose to wait.

The advisor was very friendly and took care of me right away. I saw him as well as other advisors interacting with customers and it is obvious the customer service is sincere at Dave Gill.

In a past appointment I used the free rental car that was offered. That and the free shuttle service offered will make me a loyal Dave Gill customer for years to come as well as influence my next purchase. It is priceless that it is so easy to get back on the road and to work without hassle or additional cost.

Review for collision service - My experience with Dave Gill Chevrolet was outstanding. They brought my car back to me looking cleaner and newer than it had looked in over two years. Thanks for the FAST, easy and convenient service. If I ever have the misfortune of getting hit by another bozo again, I'll be back.

Perfect.

Yesterday my mother who owns a 2007 HHR was over at my house and her key was stuck in the ignition, I tried and tried to get the key out but it was a loss. I did the research and saw that her car was one affected by the recall for the Chevy ignition switch issue. Had her call Dave Gill this morning (since it was the closest to her) to let them know and ask her what to do. They told her that it was a known issue and NOT apart of the recall and would cost her around $400+ to fix it. I was furious so I did some digging and had her call another dealership and she talked to the service manager there and they said in fact that it WAS part of the recall and to bring it in immediately. She did and they told her with the back order of parts it was going to take around 30 days to complete the repairs but not to worry, they gave her a rental car and said "we are covering the bill until your car is completely fixed and we are sorry for the inconvenience."

Thank you Jack Maxton Chevy for taking care of the issue!

And Dave Gill I can't believe you would try and take advantage of an older woman like that and you will not be receiving my business again.

Good start but horrible finish with these guys.  I won't name names today, however, when I first came to their dealership last week I was impressed with the young sales guy (we'll call him Bill) that greeted me.  You go to some dealerships and the guys are shooting the shit about the good old days.  Bill came in from outside and we got down to talking shop with no bullshit.  Most of the details were agreed upon except for the exact amount of our trade as it's reasonable they need to drive the car before they settle on a price.  

One of the key points that was communicated on my first visit was my parents were older and they don't want the typical car buying hassle.  My dad as early dementia and my mom has multiple heart, diabetes and long-term pain issues.  So they are not comfortable waiting for the typical games played at car dealerships.  I made it very clear on the first visit we wanted a smooth process the day they came to sign things  It didn't happen in any respect.

It was made clear to Bill we didn't want any of the "extras" dealerships try to sell.  In the original numbers, $199 was included at etching for I.D. purposes in case the car got stolen.  I had discussed with Bill this was not anything we wanted.  Anyways, after I brought it to his attention it came off of the order.

So now we get down to the trade-in value.  KBB returned $3,600 (worst value category) and the used car guy came back at $1,500.  We are okay if they take a little bit of a discount but not $2,100.  As I climbed into our trade-in car to head to Byers downtown for a 2nd opinion, Bill came out to say they will give us $2,500.  Our family are experienced business people and seek to be treated as such.  Just get down to the bottom line and don't make us wait.  

The day before the sale, the financing was all arranged with our bank so all that was needed was to bring our I.D.'s and sign on the dotted line.  The exact color and car were already pre-determined, so there shouldn't be much to consider.  After the haggle about the trade-in, we were informed that it would be one hour before the finance people could get things done.  Isn't it just plugging some numbers in the computer and spitting out paperwork to sign?

My dad became restless because he doesn't like to be away from home and my mom needs to have lunch due to her blood sugar.  After some serious insistence on my side, the new car manager got his butt in gear.  I am the customer and should be treated as such.  If one finance person is working, cross-train someone else or have two on staff so customers don't have to wait.  It must be a very comfortable market for dealers here in Columbus.

Lastly, we waited another 20 mins. for them to clean and prep the car.  That's fine but it should have been done the day before.  All in all, what should have taken 45 mins. from start to finish, took 2.5 hours.  What a waste of time.  

Sell me the dealership and I'll outpace the rest of the market here in Columbus!

You know the service level to get a simple oil change is outrageous. I have to take a day off work, just to get an oil change. Almost makes me want to pay at another place just so I can get in and out.

Avoid this place at all costs. These people are scammers and I would not recommend them to someone I hated let alone a friend. The service manager has an attitude that I hope lands him in trouble one day and the sales people are pure scum. Good luck trying to get a car fixed under warranty there. the minute they hear that the car is covered under warranty they avoid you like the plague. I looked at buying a new truck there, got cornered by two salesmen in an office and pretty much had to run out of there. Since Chevy closed down most of the dealerships close to me, I later went to their service department trying to get my brake light switch replaced (the brake lights did not work!) with only 34,000 miles on the truck (still under warranty) and ended up just paying for a new one and installing it myself so I could get the hell out of their service department. Out of all the Chevy dealerships in Columbus that had good service and good honest people working there, why did they let this one stay open and close the rest? I really hope someone turns this place around or they flat out just get shut down.

Dave Gill Pontiac GMC provides the best customer service I have ever received from a car dealership!

My experience begins with the search for an SUV.  I needed something reliable but not necessarily too pretty.  I wanted a basic vehicle that would drive through the snow with ease, and without costing a lot.  Matt Ringlien is the new vehicle sales manager, but took on my used vehicle request as a referral from a friend.  The process was simple, I emailed Matt with my requests in preferential order and the price range I needed to stay within.   With his magic touch, and in just a few weeks, he was able to find me a 2000 Jeep, at around $10,000!  Perfect!  It had 4-wheel drive which I needed and was even good looking.  I could still take it on sales calls.  

The search was a breeze for me.  I didn't have to do a thing!  No negotiating, nothing.  The purchase process was smooth sailing too.  quick credit check and we were good to go!  Since then,  I've been back for service a couple of times and have been equally pleased.  

Referrals are everything, and I would highly recommend asking for Matt!
