McFarland Ford was formed in December 1957 by Frank O. Patterson of Greenland, NH and Donald J. McFarland of Rye, NH, Henry McFarland's father. Two months later, Henry invested in the dealership and joined its staff. The dealership began operation in a converted barn on Court Street in Exeter. Within a few years, it moved to Portsmouth Ave. in Exeter, into what is now the Robbins Auto building. In 1966, work was begun on the current McFarland Ford building at 151 Portsmouth Ave. Exeter, NH.

I hate car shopping. There's always sleazy and shady guys trying to sell you something you don't want and something ridiculously overpriced. I've always been skeptic of shopping for a car in NH while living in MA. The whole sales tax thing, although easy enough, seemed like a hassle. I researched for 3 months and went to all kinds of dealerships during that time. I almost gave up. Then I expanded my search to NH. I am so glad I did. Macfarland Ford in Exeter had gorgeous cars (new and used) and completely smoked the competitions prices. I was so impressed by this company. I was NOT hassled. I was NOT pressured. I DID feel comfortable and they were 100% sincere and honest. I still feel like I stole the car. I can't believe the price and neither could my friends and family. They were at least $6k less right off the bat. The Ford Exp. El I bought was immaculate. That alone impressed me as I had a bad experience with a Chevy dealership that rolled out a car with bird crap all over it (not a good presentation as you can imagine). The entire staff at Macfarland were great. Nicest bunch of people I have ever met in the business. Honest and pleasant people. The car I bought was exactly what they advertised. No hidden tricks or scams. They made the whole MA to NH sales transition a seamless effort. It was easy. I can not say enough about this company except, WOW!!!!!! They have my business, guaranteed!, for life. This is an honest and sincere review. Try them out. You will NOT be disappointed. Thank you Tom and the rest of the Macfarland group. I am very happy. Go there and you'll see.
