Good Evening Mrs. Davis & JW,
I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to the both of you for everything that you did. From start to finish you both were very professional, upfront and true to your words. Hard to find companies like that especially when you deal on line.
Your company is professionally operated and I would highly recommend Davis Auto and both of you to anyone considering doing business with you. You may be smaller than the big dealers but you're top notch.
Thank you both again for everything.
Good morning. As promised, I wanted to let you know that both vehicles arrived around 8:45 PM last night. They are in tip-top shape and ready to rock and roll. Thanks again for everything. Have an amazing day!
From a customer that purchased a Dodge Cummins from New Mexico:
Just wanted to let you know I did receive my plate and thank you for mailing the check. You were awesome to work with thanks for all the help! Enjoy your summer too!”
Since I started the business in 2011, Davis Auto has been our go to auto dealer for great used vans. Their hands on approach and excellent customer service provides us with a great experience when it comes to buying company vehicles. I have also had the privilege of buying 2 personal trucks from Davis Auto which came with everything I was looking for in a truck both times. I had reached out to JW and let him know what I was looking for and both times within 2 weeks he sent me pictures of the exact truck I was looking for. On top of this for the little free time I have he actually located and sold me a fishing Center Console boat equipped like I wanted and even a 4x4 ATV. There are no limits to there abilities!!
Being a small family owned and operated business, it has been great to get to know the Davis Family and I would recommend anyone else who has personal truck or company vehicle needs to give the Davis Auto Group a try. Thanks again for all you have done with helping the Unlimited Air Family grow!

I wanted to take the time and say thank you for trusting me and helping me in my time of need. Your dad has always been so good to me over the years and I see you have a lot of him in you. Your mom is the best when she has everything ready and just says sign lol, you just know the trust is there. If you ever need me or anything my company does please call and most of all your friendship means the most of anything.
Vehicle inspection report is in the mail, passed through with no problems. Car made it home fine. Very proud of the car. Working with your team was top of the line.

Just wanted to let your staff know that the van I purchased not only met but exceeded my expectations. I actually picked up a vehicle far better than what was expected. This has been the best car buying experience I have ever had including the hassle free paperwork and your salesman meeting during his personal time in the evening. I am planning on getting me a truck next and I will be looking at you guys first. Love the van
First let me start by saying this is my third purchase from JW, that should say a lot , but allow me to add that Davis Auto Sales is a family business that truly will give you everything that you need in a truck and they go the extra mile with answering questions and will always up hold there word. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a custom truck to go see JW, and let him help you get the ride you are dreaming of. Davis Auto Sales will always receive my praise , and referrals .
Thank you for treating me like family!
I have to say I'm very impressed with the truck I got yesterday. I would definitely buy another vehicle from you. Everything on the truck was explained exactly what you're getting and very clean and even gas. Just blows me away with your customer service. God bless and thank you!

Just wanted to drop you a line and give a big "thanks" to you and all the staff at Davis Off-Road. You guys did a great job with my jeep and really made it look good. I appreciate the great customer service and your invaluable input on putting the whole package together. I look forward to continuing my "project" with you guys and referring all the business that I can to your shop! You guys definitely have a corner on the market and should be proud of what you have and the great job that you do! Thanks a million! When should I see you guys about the re-torque that you suggested? Well, I guess I will see you then!
Thanks again JW! "
Just wanted to say thanks for getting me in and out so quick.The new tires are a night and day diffrence.The truck rides great.I will be back in the future and have you do my 2500 hd!
Hello Davis Family (and Rebecca too):
I am writing you this quick note to say thank you again for all your help and support during my truck buying process! I am so happy that I bought my truck from Davis Auto Sales. It was such a pleasure to do business with a family that prides themselves on customer satisfaction while always showing the professionalism and intergrity that I want when I purchase a vehicle. I would travel back and forth again and again to Richmond from NJ to do business with The Davis family for years to come!!
Thanks again Gail and J.W.! You are awesome!!
Lorraine Gallagher, 2004 Ford F150
Thank you for working with me on lifting my 94, and trading up twice, to put me in my 99 Ford F250, I love it. JW also sold me many up-grades for my truck and took care of my son on his 2003 F350. Then Mr. and Mrs. Davis sold my son in law a very nice 94 GMC this weekend. Your fair and very nice to work with family. This was all in the last 3 months!
Thanks to all of you
’d like to express my appreciation for the great advice and service I continue to receive at Davis Auto. Your attention to details and knowledge of your customers is outstanding. You guys really know your trucks and are spot on with appropriate action to help your clientele. It’s wonderful to do business with a family who loves trucks as much as their customers do. You make owning a truck fun!"
Mark Wheeler And all the boys in Troop 860!
I have to say that every interaction I’ve had with Davis Auto Sales has left me confident that I was dealing with people of integrity……… So, when it was time to upgrade, it was an easy decision to go back to Davis Auto Sales. These guys do the right thing simply because it’s the right thing to do. It really feels good doing business with people like that!
Dr. Simeon Kuic, DC
just wanted to say thanks for the work performed on my truck by Davis Off Road. Truck looks and runs great!!! Assuming everything runs per plan, I will look to be back in March/April of next year to get the suspension lift, brakes, rims and larger tires.
Thanks again and have a great day!
Just wanted to touch base and tell you how much I love my Hummer! It was great doing business with you guys and if my husband needs a lifted truck in the near future I would definitley drive the 260 miles to do business with you guys again!
Just wanted to say thank you to the Davis Auto sales team for putting together such and amazing truck and to JW for all the help in completing the sale!! I have been riding above the rest and happy for three months now and could'nt feel better.
I just wanted to say Thank You for all of your help on the phone this morning. My husband has been searching for these tires and with them being so hard to find, I was glad that you had a set available. Also, your customer service was wonderful ~ with him being in Afghanistan, and me knowing nothing about tires, it was nice to be able to get assistance with this over the phone, and making the ordering process easier than I ever thought it would be.
Thank You Again,
What: Boy Scout Troop 2860 Rappahannock River Camp
Who: Happy Customer, Mark Wheeler
Why: Moving camp gear from Hole in the Wall to Virginia Outdoor Center
Detail: 2004 Chevy 2500HD, stock height, 6L motor, 150K miles, double cab, long bed, maintained by JW and Crew at Davis Auto. Had nearly 1,000 pounds of water and coolers in the bed. Trailer is a 6X12 full to capacity with Boy Scout gear. Grade is around 12%, single track, rutted, rocky, with natural spring running out of it half way up, very wet and steep. Tires are Michelin 265/75/16 E rated on/off road. Used low gearing and crawled up this grade without hardly slipping a tire. Very impressive given the conditions and weight.
"I can’t thank J.W. and his crew enough for keeping this truck maintained and reliable. No, it’s not an economy vehicle, but when you need to get a job done it takes a capable vehicle to do it safely and continue to do so day in and day out. We’ve used this truck to capacity but haven’t had to abuse it to get the job done. JW watches over it like it was his own and the truck continues to be a reliable and safe vehicle that I don’t hesitate to utilize to put our Troop on the road. !
Thank you again JW."
I would just like to say Thank You for working with me on this purchase. Also for being so diligent and cooperative with everything.
Thanks Again for Everything,
Thank you for everything Gail and give my thanks to everyone there at Davis Auto Sales who helped make this happen. I will highly recommend Davis Auto Sales to all my Army buddy's and to anyone who asks where I got my awesome truck.
Editor’s note…….Serviceman in Iraq with truck being delivered to Kansas.
I was recently deployed overseas to Iraq and wanted a nice new truck to return home to. I had searched all over the internet for someone willing to work with me over the phone and/or e-mail me and had no luck. Then I discovered Davis Auto Sales through autotrader.com. Davis Auto Sales was willing to work with me even though I was on the other side of the world. They had the exact truck I was looking for, a Ford F-250 Super duty. It already had all the modifications and add-ons done to it that I was looking for. I heard from many people that purchasing a vehicle without first seeing and test driving it was foolish. But I put my trust and confidence in Davis Auto Sales and am glad to say I couldn't be happier. The truck checked out and is in great condition, not to mention all the add-ons were all top of the line quality brands. Needless to say the truck is AWESOME and the service I received from everyone at Davis Auto Sales was spectacular. I highly recommend Davis Auto Sales to anyone who wants a quality vehicle, quality service and one badass truck!
Craig Nadherny, US Army
You guys did a great job and your customer service is the BEST. Thanks for everything. I will send you a picture of the truck when everything is finished so you can see the fruits of your labor.
John C. Lee, Jr., President and CEO , Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative
I would like to thank ALL the Davis bunch for my purchase of my 03 GMC Duramax. I had been looking for one for ever telling J.W to keep his eyes open. He found what I was looking for and gave me the best service I have ever had purchasing an used truck. The only place I would buy another used truck in Richmond area!
I just finished delivering a Nissan Frontier that you lifted to Nissan Newport News and just wanted to let you know what an excellent ride it was. I would say that it was a superior ride to an unmodified similar truck I had driven the day before. KUDOS to you!
Nissan of Newport News
I just wanted to comment on your company. I was dealing with J.W. and Gail trying to purchase a truck and financing fell through on my end. The respect that I was shown by J.W. was very unexpected he had already made preperation to modify the truck and held it for 3 or 4 days with no money down. I will guarantee I will not buy from anyone else when my situation is corrected I WILL be a DAVIS customer. Thank you J.W.and Gail its good to know people like your family still exist!
The experience was unlike any other I have had when shopping for a vehicle. This family-owned business knows the meaning of Customer Service. From the moment of arrival at their company to signing thew paperwork, there was never a tense or pressure moment. It was actually very much like purchasing a vehicle from a close family member, I only wish I could give them 10 stars.

The Southern Knight Cruisers would like to thank you for your generous support of our 13th Annual MDA Car Show on August 10th, 2012. Even though the day was not perfect for a car show, with your participation and contributions, we were able to raise over $10,000, which all went to MDA to help fight this terrible disease.
Again, we thank you and look forward to working with you next year.
Ricky Williams, President, Southern Knights Cruisers
"We wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you for the incredible job you did on our 2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD!! The truck looks amazing. We are so pleased with all the work you all did. It is amazing when we go out everyone ask us when we got a new truck! Then we proudly tell them Davis Off Road hooked it up! We will definately come to you from now on for all of our vehicle upgrades.
Thanks again for everything. We really appreciate it!!!"
Jason and Jessica Sobbing
Just wanted to say thanks for the job well done on my 2006 F-150....it looks great.....as you know, I drove all the way to Richmond from Roanoke to have the job done....mostly because of your superior customer service....I had little to no prior experience with lifting trucks....you made the entire process easy and convenient.....thanks again.
We've known JW and his family for about 10-12 years. While recently working in western VA, we purchased a used 2004 Jeep Rubicon. We contacted JW seeking his advice on some alterations, and he took the time to explain several possibilities.
Shortly thereafter, we brought the Jeep to Davis Auto and we're so happy we did! They made all the alterations/modifications which made the vehicle more comfortable for us to drive. The timeframe was super, and their price was very reasonable. We found JW and Davis Auto to be very professional, and they made the alteration process a breeze. They are a great family business, and we highly recommend them. Many thanks Davis Auto!
Really love the Jeep...Looks Great, Runs and Sounds much better...Actually cracks me up every time I look at it. I did notice the Inspection and was extremely impressed your Team caught that and took care of it.
Thanks for a Great experience.
made the 1,500 mile FL run without incident. Even used cruise control in trailer pull mode on level low traffic stretches. Around 71mph seemed to be the sweet spot in the power band and the truck performed wonderfully. Band equipment didn’t amount to any real weight but the trailer itself isn’t exactly small. Your careful attention to maintenance details has made this a reliable and mission capable unit. I can’t thank you and your crew enough for helping to keep this truck in excellent condition. Really using a truck reveals the importance of having experienced maintenance workmanship utilizing high quality parts and modifications. Your common sense approach to solutions without compromise on reliability and quality are truly appreciated, even more so when you’re 700 miles from home with a job to get done.
Thank you JW!
Mark Wheeler, 2004 Chevy2500 Crew cab/6L/long bed/4x4
I just wanted to thank you and your family for working with me and making buying and selling the Excursion an easy and enjoyable process. I am happy with my new truck, if I am in the market for another BIG truck, I will definately come back and see you.
I live in Tallahassee, FL. This was the best buying experience I have had. JW and Gail were easy to work with. Gail made the paperwork easy to do since I live out of state. JW was more than accommodating. We had agreed on one set of rims, they sent the wrong ones, JW did everything he could to find me another set, which he did. They sent the wrong set again and he was able to still find me a set of rims, mounted and balanced before I drove 11 hrs on Friday. Mind you these are not just any rims..... 22 x 14 in chrome mounted on 40" toyo open country MT is extremely hard to find in 2 days!!! JW stayed in constant contact with me giving me updates on the rim situation. Overall, if I was to buy another lifted truck....I would buy from Davis Auto Sales again.... Well worth the 11 hour drive. Professional, Courteous and extremely knowledgeable. Truck was even better in person, everything shown on the website was just like it should be in person.
As an out of state buyer, I was a little concerned about buying a truck online, but Davis Auto quickly made all those concerns disappear. JW and Andrew made the process easy and smooth. JW picked me up at the airport in my new truck and walked me through all the history and updates about the truck on the drive back to the lot. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Davis Auto has earned my business!
This vehicle sold sight unseen to a Florida customer and Davis Auto helped assist with arrangement of Transportation,
The Hummer arrived yesterday......two words: bad ass. WOW, it's even bigger than it looked in the pictures. This thing is a beast.
Thanks for the help JW,
Brian, Valrico Florida Customer
thanks for making our dream truck a reality :-)
Words can’t describe how pleased we are with the Davis Auto sales group. I have bought some high-end vehicles before from dealers and never have we received such great service. They made our dreams come true with this truck!! I stressed out some when our bank was having communication issues with them and Ms. Davis assured me everything was going to be fine. They helped us arrange shipping which by the way was awesome. They recommended a local guy who does most of their shipping and he gave me constant updates on transport info. All I can say is for us it was 110% awesome!! I am so happy to see a family business like theirs stand by their word and service!! To J.W. and family many thanks and God Bless
...we looked at other vans, but Jim‘s vehicle, and his friendly salesmanship brought us back... We felt that we were not only getting a van in good condition, we were getting Jimmy‘s assurance as well. His professionalism gave us confidence in the deal.

Jerry and Jean Harrison
"I spoke recently with a long-time Richmond area auto dealer, who over the years has been in both retail and wholesale, and who I discovered is a mutual friend to both Jimmy and me. He immediately began speaking of Jimmy’s honesty, and without prompting offered that "anybody would appreciate Jimmy as a neighbor or friend or colleague" there s nothing "put on" about him. Jimmy s genuineness and cooperative spirit are so evident."
Ed Stansfield, Pastor, Chester Baptist Church
"Over the past five years, I have purchased four vehicles from Jimmy. The reason for this is that from the very beginning with the purchase of the first vehicle we have been very pleased with the quality and service that we have gotten."
