Great Experience

by from Palm Bay, FL |

I was shopping all over Central Florida for an F-150. Got the best deal emailed to me by my hometown dealer which was nice. Saved me a drive to Orlando or and of the big city dealers. When I got there they offered exactly what I was expecting my trade was worth, and all the staff that I dealt with was very friendly.

Poor Internet

by from Vero Beach, Fl |

Their Internet Sales team has to be one of the most unknowledgable or a Rip Off around. They told me my 2007 "Certified , Registered , Shelby GT Mustang" was not a real Shelby, because it was not a 500 ! Ms. Fonte called it a "Baby" Shelby, not real ! Shelby America in LasVegas were my car came from told me they (Palm Bay Ford) don't know what there talking about. My Shelby Mustang was more a Shebly than there 500 that comes off their factory production line in Lansing MI. They wanted to give me $6,000 less for a trade. Internet people "Beware" of this team !! I would recommend this Dealer, but not the Internet Team. We have bought two Explores from them in the past. Mr. Jeer was vert good.

Best Experience!

by from Fort Pierce, FL |

From the time we arrived at the dealership until we drove off in our purchased vehicle, we were treated with respect and courtesy. Our salesman, Richard, went out of his way to assure we had a positive experience. I commend Palm Bay Ford for their excellent customer service! The best we have ever received from any dealership. Totally awesome! Thanks

Steve and Charlie are the best!

by from Palm Bay Florida |

My husband and I have bought many cars in Brevard County. Most of our car buying experiences have been frustrating and I have found most salesmen very condescending. Despite our unique issues, trying to trade one vehicle in for two without spending more money, our experience with Steve and Charlie (Sales team) was exceptional. No high pressure. They really listened to what our needs were and worked hard to get us where we needed to be. It did take almost all day, but that was because of our circumstances. When noon rolled around they bought us lunch (Charlie took us out while Steve stayed behind to work on the deal) which helped pass the time and was considerate as I was beginning to fade. LOL So, yes, not only would I recommend Palm Bay For, but I would say ask for Steve and Charlie--tell them Judie sent you!

Wonderful experience buying my new car!

by from Melbourne Florida |

After shopping around and visiting different dealerships in town, walking into Palm Bay Ford was a refreshing experience. As a woman, I felt I was treated differently than at other dealerships; for one thing, nobody kept asking if I wanted to come back with my husband to buy the car. I was able to engage in fair negotiation and I ended up buying a car that I really loved and that fit my budget. Customer service was excellent both from my salesman and the management team. I would definitely recommend this dealership if you're looking for a different buying experience.

Awesome Team

by from palm bay, fl |

I bought a 2012 ford focus. I drove it for 2 days. I didn't like it. I took it back and the sales team worked with me to buy a 2012 Elantra. Tracie and Mike are wonderful salespersons. The finance guy (Mike) was awesome too!! My experience at buying a new car at Palm Bay Ford was excellant!

Amazing Experience!

by from Palm Bay, FL |

I have NEVER had such a smooth, friendly, and wonderful experience as I did last Sunday when I purchased my 2014 Ford Escape. I was so upside down on my trade-in (over $8,000.00!) and needed to downsize, and the Salesman, General Manager, and Finance Manager took a personal interest in making sure I could work out my finances, especially now that I'm a retired disabled veteran (when other dealerships told me they couldn't work it out how I needed it to). I was even able to work with the same salesman as my main finance representative (Justin) making the whole process seem like a small-town dealership while having the flexibility of a large one. I'd recommend this dealership and my sales person to EVERYONE! I've bought and sold at least 15 cars and as long as I stay in a Ford, I'll always go back here.

Palm Bay Ford, taketh or leaveth..I shall leaveth!

by from Palm Bay |

My daughter had made a purchase on a used 2011 Ford Fiesta from Palm Bay Ford....they had allowed her to drive off the lot with a small deposit. Well over a week later, they called her back and told her she either needed another $1200 or they want the car back because she had no credit.....I am in disbelief that the credit report wasn't done, before she drove off the lot! Now she is without a vehicle!!! Never have I ever heard of a dealership doing this to someone! This should be illegal! Between the stress Ford of Palm Bay has caused, and now she has no vehicle to get to and from work!!! THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!

My name is Brian Snow, I am the General Sales Manager of Palm Bay Ford. I would be happy to discuss any of the aspects of your daughters transaction, with her approval of course.It appears you do not have all the facts regarding her shopping experience. If you would like a full explaination and a answer to any questions you may have, I would be happy to meet with you at your convenience. Simply call 722-9000 and ask for me. It's important to note that in your review you indicated that your daughter wash able to infact keep the vehicle if she had been able to come up with the additional $1200 down payment the lender had wanted. Palm Bay Ford is commited to world class customer service and I look forward to resolving this matter for you.

EXCELLENT & PROFESSIONAL

by from Ocoee |

The staff and my sales person Mickey was very professional and honest. I saw this vehicle 2008 BMW 750 LI on CARS.com and I inquired about it and applied on line and got a quick response from the dealership and they told me to come in and bring in the necessary paper work they requested. We arrive at the dealership at 6:00pm and by 8:30pm we were driving back home to OCOEE, FLORIDA in our 2008 BMW 750 LI. GREAT JOB...PALM BAY FORD.
