Everyone I came in contact with within Gillespie Ford was very friendly and helpful. The salesman, Frank, was knowledgeable of the vehicle I was interested in, easy to talk to, and very friendly. He went out of his way to ensure that I knew how to operate the vehicle and ensured me that he would be more than happy to answer any questions I may have concerning the operation of the equipment on my vehicle & that I could phone him or stop by to see him at any time. I was very much at ease with him. All in all, it was a satisfactory situation for me.

The people I interacted with were professional and pleasant to deal with. They did work for a recall so there wasn’t much to fuss or haggle over. The only issue I had was that it took them an hour longer to finish working on my vehicle than they originally stated. I found this out when I showed up to pick up my vehicle. Communication was lacking but otherwise good service.

I first started with your service department with this 2014 Ford Escape when Chuck H. handled it as a Wheels Leased Vehicle. I was SO impressed, I always came back (even though I live in WI). We bought the car, have extended warranty and I came in for routine maintenance. My concerns were addressed, handled and I was surprised at the final cost (in a good way!). I trust your service department. WILL BE BACK!

I started coming to this dealership for service 5 years ago when they had the “Big Dog” coupon that $120 for 4 oil changes. After I used the coupon, I decided to keep doing service here although there is a more convenient one really close to my home. The quality of the service is perfect, I know that my car didn’t require more complicated service than oil change, but devils are in the detail, even for oil change, you can definitely tell whether the service is normal, good, or awesome. They have refurnished their waiting area 2 years ago if I remembered correct. It is comfortable and have free drinks and internet. Scheduling an appointment is super easy and you can even walk-in for quick service. They are friendly—- I guess this is the most important other than quality of service. Honestly, I can do oil change anywhere with the same quality, why not choose one that treat you as their friends. So, I started to bring my mustang for service there as they earned my trust. If they can have more coupon like the “Big Dog” that would be great. :)

Good service, Friendly staff, reasonable price.
