Great service. Courteous and helpful staff. Always on schedule with no long waits on service appointments. This dealership is far superior to others I have gone to in past. I purchased a certified pre-owned vehicle here and love it.
It was a great experience. I enjoy the service and the people at Progressive Chevrolet. I have been going there for the last 28 years. I would recommend them to anyone looking.
I?m very satisfied with the time frame in which they had my car serviced.
Excellent experience from start to finish. Very knowledgeable and nice people work at this dealership.
I've been coming here for a while. Came today for my oldest kid to get her credit going. Had zero credit. It was easy and they made it quick. Brought out exact vehicle we wanted to buy. It was like they knew us! Ryan has been our sales guy for a few years.
Hands down for my first vehicle purchased from a dealer the best place to go, I had Zack Smith and Jason Kirby and they were great and they helped me through the whole process in a very timely manner and got me into the truck that I wanted and with every feature I wanted. If you're looking for a new or even used vehicle Progressive Chevy is the way to go you won't be disappointed!
Eric took care of all my service needs. Everything was done in a timely manner.
Unbelievable. In a good way! That’s the word that best describes the sales management team at Progressive Chevrolet. Last night I saw a commercial from them advertising $5000 for any trade on any certified used vehicle. I went to the website and checked inventory to see if they had anything of interest and found a 2019 GMC Acadia. Low mileage, low price, good shape, so I signed up. Next morning started with a text message from a sales rep and after a couple preliminary questions, I decided I would take a drive, one and a half hours away, to buy a car. I also needed a couple additional hours to clear out the work van that I was trading, so I decided to forfeit a day’s pay from work. I asked pointed questions and was reassured by text message that the car was still available and that I would be getting $5000 for my trade which was worth about 1/10th of that, scrap metal and a new set of tires. Upon arriving there were a number of things that raised flags, starting with that the person who came to help me was different from who I had been communicating with. He then proceeded to go through the checklist for trading in a vehicle, and in the back of my mind I was wondering why he was going through all that when he was going to give me $5000 and scrap the van anyway. Flag #2. He went out to bring up the Acadia and I caught him as he parked it outside the showroom, and asked straight up if I was getting the $5K for the van. His response was that that program was only on ‘certified’ vehicles and the Acadia was not one of them. I said it was last night and then showed him the text from his associate that confirmed it. Flag #3. A short debate and he went to get his manager. A longer debate intertwined with his possibly convincing argument and I decided this was all the old bait and switch game and a waste of time, time that I really could not afford to waste. The manager realizing my frustration, offered to fill up my gas tank and instructed the salesman to accompany me to do so, and afterwards headed out. I got about halfway home, maybe 45 minutes out, with thoughts of false advertising, my lawyer daughter, and the state attorney general rumbling through the front of my head, while the financial loss for the day lingered in the back, I get a call from the head manager of the sales department, who said they had looked further into the problem and discovered that it was a typing error by a third party unassociated with the dealership that produced the “Certified” heading. I thought he was simply calling to provide additional explanation and leave it at that. I answered that I lost a days’ work, did all my due diligence so I wouldn’t get into this situation and here we were. Surprisingly, he asked me what I would like to see, to have this resolved. My response was that I came down there completely prepared to buy a car, at the advertised price and get $5K for my trade. He responded by offering $3500. That got my interest and after a little back and forth, agreed on a slightly higher number, compensating me for the new tires that I wanted to replace with junk before I turned the van over, and that barring anything detrimental on the Acadia, we had a deal. I continued home thinking I would go back Monday to close the deal because we had dinner plans with another couple that evening. As we were walking into the restaurant, my phone rings. I answer It and to my surprise, it’s the general manager again. My first thought was that they were backing out of the agreement. He started, “We have been talking about this situation with the owners, trying to sort out what happened as far as the misrepresentation in the advertising and they decided to offer the entire $5000 as advertised.” Wait; What??? Say that again! So he did. I couldn’t believe it. I stammered my way, dumbfounded, through the rest of the conversation and assured him that I would be back the next day, which I did, completed the deal, picked up my Acadia, and as an unexpected bonus, got several free oil changes and warranty stuff unexpectedly. Unfortunately, I couldn’t use the oil changes because it doesn’t make sense to drive three hours for that. So for anybody that might be thinking that all car dealers are the same and routinely practice bait and switch tactics, I can unequivocally state that PROGRESSIVE CHEVY is not one of those. Also, a little preemptive preparation doesn’t hurt.
I had a small problem and they got it taken care of right away.
Bre Curtis assisted my husband and I in purchasing a silver 2020 GMC Terrain. She was knowledgeable, kind, helpful and funny, an absolute pleasure to deal with! I was nervous going to the dealership ( I do not like sales pressure) but she was so kind and down to earth that she actually made buying a car fun! If you are in the market to buy a car please go to Progressive Chevrolet and ask for Bre!

Progressive Chevrolet Company is a 4th generation family owned dealership that has been part of the community for over 75 years.
Progressive opened its doors in Wilmington, Ohio, in 1937 by the late J.S. “Sandy” Sanders. He had an opportunity to move to the Massillon area in 1939, and relocated to South Erie Street. As the business grew, he needed more space and moved to the foot of the Viaduct on Lincoln Way in 1953.
Sandy Sanders was a huge proponent of giving back to the community. In the 1950’s, he established an Employee Civic Fund. Throughout the year employees donate money to the fund that is then donated to various charities in our area. It has been continued through today. In just the past ten years, Progressive has donated over $310,000 to local charities through the Civic Fund.
In 1977, the J.S. “Sandy” Sanders award was “initiated by The Massillon Chamber of commerce in honor of a man who gave so much of himself to his community”. The award has been given yearly since 1978 to an individual worthy of recognition for loyalty, devotion and continuing endeavors in making the Massillon area a better place to work, live and play.
Sandy’s two sons, Colman “Coke” Sanders and the late Charles “Pitt” Sanders took over, following in their father’s footsteps. In 1976 they built a new dealership at the current location on Hills & Dales Road in Massillon.
Coke and Pitt have been proponents of education about the preservation of wildlife areas. They helped establish The Sanders Wildlife Rehabilitation Center at Sippo Lake Park in honor of their father, J.S. Sanders. In 1982 the building was gifted to Stark Parks from the Sanders Wildlife Foundation. The Center is now dedicated fully to wildlife rehabilitation services and is open six days a week to the public.
Coke had 2 boys, Dan and Ted Sanders. They worked their way through the departments to learn the business. In 1979, Dan took over as Dealer Principal at the age of 33.
The business has continued to grow. In 2000, Progressive expanded it’s manufacturer lines by purchasing Remlingler Cadillac - Oldsmobile - Dodge. Six months later, General Motors closed down the Oldsmobile line. But 10 years later, Dan and Ted expanded again, adding Chrysler and Jeep.
Dan’s boys, Craig and Tim Sanders, and Ted’s boys, Heath and Clayton Sanders, began the same way – working their way through the departments. They are still involved in the business. Heath works in the finance department and Clayton is the new car manager at Progressive Chevrolet.
Craig and Tim Sanders became owners of Progressive Chevrolet and Progressive Chrysler, Jeep Dodge in 2012 and are excited to carry the torch.
They headed up the decision to donate two new 2012 Chevy Sonic LTZ's to two local school districts to raffle off in order to raise money for the schools and participating booster groups. And most recently, Progressive Chevrolet Company donated a 2014 Chevy Impala to help the Stark County Hunger Task Force fight local hunger. All proceeds from the “Food for the People” car raffle were donated to the cause.
