In 1916 Arthur C Johnson "Chris" formed a partnership with Ralph M O'Connell Auto Sales & Service.

I am VERY picky and demanding when it comes to buying a car. I was looking for a Ford Escape for my 71 year old mother and her 86 year old husband with dementia. She couldn't drag him around checking out cars and going through the car buying dance. I put in a search on Cars.com and Johnson Ford came up. She had purchased her previous car from them. Brian Beauquard was AMAZING. I contacted him at 10am and by 12:30pm he had a car in her driveway 30 minutes away to test drive. I knew exactly what she should get for trade and what her payment should be. He made that work. That was Monday. By Wednesday she drove off the lot with 0% financing from Ford. While at the dealership they offered her husband drinks and snacks. It is hard to do all the 'stuff' when you are trying to be a care giver. Brian at Johnson made that so easy. I am never impressed with a car deal. Until now. Thank you for helping my mom and step dad. You went above and beyond. I hope this continues through the service years of this car. Thankfully yours, Andrea Wadsworth
