Teddy Brown 1 review just now-Edit So where to start.I bought a Used F150 and was told clean Car Fax, its a good truck, traded in from the second dealer... and that their shop had gone through it and serviced it and checked everything and it was ready to go. Well, close to the end of my 2 hour drive home, I was informed by the local Sheriffs office that I was not so ready to go. He informed me that I had numerous bulbs out on the truck including a headlight bulb. Really, I just bought this truck and it was supposed to have been checked out by their shop. So he let me go with a warning since I had just purchased it. I got home and called the dealer to advise them and the sales manger actually handled the situation very professionally. Told me to replace the bulbs and send them the bill. Well I was ok with that, changed $65 worth of bulbs but lost the receipt. Oh well, my mess up. So the very next week the check engine light came on and the trouble code P0420 “Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold and also P0430 code, ECU detects below threshold performance from the catalytic converter. So I checked the converters just fir anything visual and they look fairly new so I cleared the codes to see if they came back on. The following week, Check engine light cam back on. This time PO306, engine control module detected a misfire on cylinder number 6 of the engine. So I went and replaced the spark plugs thing that it was probably due anyway no biggie. Cleared the light again. During this same week, week 3 of owning, I find the sunroof is leaking A LOT! Figured that out after a couple of days with buckets in the seats and floor. Well even after changing the plugs, which seemed to help at first, I still have a prominent skip under load. Has not set off the check engine light but probably in due time. So finally saying Ive had about enough with all the little things I've had to deal with this truck, I decided to cut my loses and get rid of it. Went to trade it in and the New dealer informs me that I did not have a clean Car Fax and that the truck had been wrecked twice with moderate damage. With that being said, its no where near what payoff would be and I'm stuck having to eat it! Shorter version of this story. I was lied to about the truck being looked at and ready to go by their shop and I was lied to about the truck having a clean Car Fax. Watch out !!

Jerald was amazing! I had a recall on my airbags. I came in for the service and he was so helpful that I asked for his help with another small issue with... my keys. Because of it, he found out that mutt battery was dying, which my husband had suspected. So I got my new battery and key that day. Then I came back about a week later so I could replace my key fob. Jerald was so kind and helpful from the first phone call to both of my visits that not only will I start using Wade Ford for any issues, I'll always ask for Jerald!

I always receive great service on my vehicle, when I call my service advisor, Jerald Sparkman. He always welcomes me with a smile. And he's prompt... in returning my calls when I need to schedule an appointment to bring my car in for service/repair. I believe he put forth great efforts in keeping his customers 100% satisfied with the service. Thank you Jerald for all you do to keep your customers happy with service.

Waiting nine days now for a callback about my car in Wade's service department. I call on a near-daily basis trying to learn something about the status... of my car.

I bought a Ford Escape in late 2017...In fact I bought 2..I tried to set up our initial service using the online scheduling for the vehicle...The website... for scheduling service would not work...BTW I tried multiple times..During the process I was asked if I needed assistance via online chat....I initiated the chat and was told that someone would contact me to schedule an appointment...No one ever called. 30 days later I tried again to schedule an appt via the website...Again it did not work...This time a called the service number directly...I was transferred to a service advisor and went right to voicemail. Later in the day I received a call back and was able to schedule an appt. Dropping of the car is a nightmare. The facility is too crowded with cars, there is no place to park and trying to navigate through the lot is just crazy..All that was needed was an oil change...I dropped the car off at 9am..After not hearing anything by 4pm I called to check on status...Again I went right to voicemail....I was called back within 30 minutes and told the car was ready...7 1/2 hours for an oil change??? Once I got to the service center I waited 20 minutes at the window to pick up my car...Long frustrating day to get an oil change..

An update from purchase of used car for college age daughter. Oil changes kept up to date. Bought August 2018 car no longer in service due to faulty motor... among other things. Including before purchase and time of this incident, September 2018 I have gone to wade ford on 4 occasions with no help from them only an attempt to sell their overpriced service department without addressing our concerns. Watch for bait and switch tactics. Called service manager because he saw the response to our post. Offered no help only to say he wished the car was here and not in Valdosta sitting idle in a parking lot. Left his bomber for me to call which I did to no avail. This operation on used cars IS A SHAM. If they will do this to a veteran and a young college girl then they will do it to you. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!

I went to Jerald Sparkman and he said I was assigned to another service writer. He went looking for him and he wasn't available so Jerald took over... my service work. It was a good service in every aspect.
Audrey, we're pleased to hear everything was completed to your satisfaction! We hope you continue to choose Wade Ford for all your vehicle needs!... Take care!
