Ford has great quality cars and can last and amazing amount of time if well taken of.
my family uses a ford expedition, and its awesome. There's eight of us in my family and we all fit nicely, especially with all the leg space we have. Nothing so far has broken and we've had it for a couple years. Its super nice and a great price!
I have owned many Fords over the years. I like that they change with the times and that they are always trying to engineer them better. The one I have now is a Ford Focus and it gets great gas mileage, it looks great and runs well. I have not had any problems with the car.
We currently own a Ford truck and really like it for it's reliability and durablity. We use it to haul anything that we need and it never let's us down. It is strong and pulls all of our toys and trailers.
I love the amazing cars that Ford sells and the high quality cars they have!! They give great service and are always having the best deals going on!! I love the Ford truck my family has and I love how it has been a great truck and had very few problems ever since we bought it!!!
My husband owns a Ford Truck that he absolutely loves. He has depended on Ford trucks since he was a small boy growing up in Idaho. I like seeing the Ford name because I know that it was built here in the United States. It just seems American! It is one tough truck and Ford is really built strong!
Ford has high quality cars. Although it isn’t super luxurious it performs well. It’s reliable and economic. This sure is a trustworthy car brand and nobody can go wrong getting a Ford.
Excellent customer service, cleanliness, accessibility, personal attention and business services.
Ford makes durable work trucks. I know everyone and manufactures are all about electronics, but it would be my preference to have more of the "under-the-hood" be less electronic and more tough parts like they were originally. Sure, have powere window and seats but not everyhing else having sensoes.
I don't like the trunk, the dashboard, and the windows. I bump my head on the windows, bump my knee on the dashboard, and can't lift anything heavy out of the trunk. This is supposed to be a hatchback.
Excellent from the time I started negotiations till the delivery of my Ford Titanium
excellent service and friendly customer service and they go out of there way to help you
Excellent! I would recommend elemenating the game played between the sales person and the sales manager.
I was sent a notification that the truck might develop a problem in cold weather. They will only fix it if it devlops that problem. Why not fix the problem before it becomes a problem?
Like their product, I like everything, improve their dealerships
I love my C-Max. But their sales methods are too aggressive for my taste and their Encinitas unit needs to improve the customer service in their service departmeyt
It's been good. Oil change service at dealer is too long of a wait time even with an appointment.
We have had nothing but good results in deapling with Ford, from the sales people to the service department. They all know their product and can answer any question you may have. Always friendly and courteous, we have absolutely no complaints. We love our Ford Edge
Fantastic customer service. Very accommodating to my time frames.
always great service been driving fords for over 58 years and only had trouble wiyh the first one .Have ford excape 2006 no trouble yet. the last 2 cars 12 years each.
Salesman was iffy, finance man terrible, would never buy there again or refer anyone to them
They have competent employees at sales, service and management
Awesome!! Never had any oroblem with them. I have had to ford suv's- both have been awesome! Had the 1999ford exployer sport fir about 15 years abd had clise to 300000 miles on it. Now i have a 2012 edge- have had it now over 7 tears with about 180000 miles on it - still going strong!!
The Ford Edge we own has been a wonderful vehicle. Ford has put quality products on the road for years thanks to their UAW workforce.
Great vehicles, we have owned a number of different manufacturers vehicles over the years but Ford has been the most reliable vehicle after vehicle.
I have been treated very well by my Ford dealer and my vehicles have been very reliable.
the vehicle I purchased has been very reliable and a good value for themoney.
Very poor on providing parts on recalls. Very unreliable in following up on recall notices. The placement of the battery on a Ford Fusion and a Ford Escape is not customer friendly location in time of battery failure. The passenger seat on a Ford Escape is a miserable ride.
I love all my Ford cars, trucks, and minivans I have owned throughout the years. I just love the quality of the car and the ease in handling the cars. Their customer service is great.
I have not had issues with my Ford Escape. But the check engine lights stays on and mechanic can not get a code on it.
I have been a Ford customer for 12 years now. I have owned 4 trucks and have been pleased with each purchase. The Ford dealership here in GA knows me well. They take time to help me with each purchase, question, issue I have and service calls. I would buy from them again if I needed to.
Good quality, innovation, dependability. Friendly service and they answer questions very well. I've always been able to find what I'm looking for.
Quality is good. More vehicles that are good for towing. Not just pickups
The service on the car is good, but the quality of parts and manufacturing are horrible
Better built then some imports but like all cars out there they fail to often.
vehicle service and customer service will return for future oil changes
Once the car has been traded back to take OFF their call list t renew insurance. Easy to schedule maintanance and you have a comfortable place to read or watch tv.
I am impressed with the quality of my 2014 Escape, I recently had to use a rental car (Toyota) and it made me really appreciate my Ford. I also have my car financed through Ford and the process was easy unlike previous experiences with financing.
I have had my Ford Edge since 2007. No problems and when they had recalls, only 2 they took care of it .
Too much platinum used on items that will wear out prematurely, specigically gearing\servos controlling the vent fliw.
Dependable, stylish and affordable. They have great leadership who doesn't buckle to pressure as in bailout money
Driven Fords for over 35 years, never have i been left stranded, i have only had one break down in all thst time.
Fantastic company with reliable cars. I love my Fusion and its the best car ive ever owned with fantastic gas milage.
Excellent no complaints,have had excellent service from my vehicle..Glad that i bought my Ford and the dealer was great couldnt be happier t
Reliable ford escapes have been driving them for decades and they just keep getting better. They are great value for their price and never break down
they're good overall with some great special yet costly models and many so-so affordable ones just as well ...
Good price, good styling, inovative, great dealership, servicing is easy for appointments and any repairs
Have had more Ford's than any other make . They are the most basic and repairs are usually simple.
Helpful with financing ,salemen were very attentive, great followup after the sale
The car I had was very nice and lasted a long time.
