I bought a 2017 ford focus from Bob Thomas Ford one year ago. It began having transmission issues and I had brought it to the dealership for repair. Come... to find out, this is an ongoing issue that Ford overlooks. When I expressed my concern a member of their service team who I will leave nameless at this time, coaxed me into coming in so that they can "work with me" because they had mislead me into believing that the transmission issue had been fixed in 2017. When I got there, they did not work with me, but in fact just tried to offer me $10,000 less than MSRP on my car and $13,000 less than I paid a year ago and sell me a new car with LESS features than I have today at a higher APR rate, this making my monthly payments increase. I couldn't believe that they didn't actually try to work with me since it was their defective car! I know that I am not the only one having this issue too, if you google it, the issue is ALL over the internet loud and clear. DO NOT BUY A FORD FOCUS! PERIOD! However, if you are dead set on a Ford, I would strongly suggest hesitation in buying from Bob Thomas Ford in Hamden.
Bob Thomas Ford recommended an unnecessary wheel alignment for my car. When asked whether the recommended alignment was necessary, Gary Shelomis, service... manager, confirmed that it was necessary and that it needed to be fixed before I could drive my car. Because of the $130 price of the alignment, I asked for second opinions from Firestone and Town Fair Tire. Both reviewed a printout of Bob Thomas Ford’s alignment measurements and advised that an alignment would not be “necessary” and that $130 would be excessive for an alignment even if it were necessary.
First and importantly is an apology for not responding to this review which we did not receive notice of until recently. About 2 years ago the deale...rship installed a brand new, state-of-the-art alignment system and offers all customers a no charge alignment check. I can't answer for Firestone or Town Fair Tire's opinion but Bob Thomas Ford's state-of-the-art alignment equipment tested your vehicle and the results were that the vehicle needed an alignment. The competition may have been trying to compete with the dealership on price by telling you that $130 is an excessive fee for an alignment along with telling you that the alignment. The dealership is not interested in selling unnecessary alignments as the department is always very busy with service work on other customers' vehicles. Hopefully you'll come back to us in the future and give us another opportunity to you that we have your best interest in mind!
I went to Bob Thomas Ford looking for a new car after twelve years in my Explorer. I worked with Colby who was very knowledgeable, helpful, and courteous.... Bob Thomas also met with me to welcome me to the dealership and let me know he was at my service. I expected to leave with a certified pre-owned Explorer. Colby showed me the new Flex with the eco-boost engine and I was sold. No high pressure sales, just great service.

I asked 3 dealers for Internet pricing on a 2014 Ford Escape. Bob Thomas Ford had the best price, responded quickly and had an excellent follow up process.... The overall buying experience was hassle-free.

Just purchased my third new car from Bob Thomas Ford. It's the only place I go for new cars. I trust them. The staff is friendly, understanding and knows... thier stuff. I was unsure what car would best suit my needs so our sales person spent most of the day letting me drive whatever car I wanted. When I settled on an Edge, Bob Thomas Ford found me a fantastic financing rate. If I have questions about my cars, the staff answers them. When my cars need service, I receive a full report of what is needed, when it is needed, and the cost. There is just no reason for me to give my business to any other dealer.
There's nothing we like more than hearing from a customer that's happy with their experience and is willing to share that experience with others! We t...ry to operate with a very relaxed atmosphere and all our employees are dedicated to working together as a team. At Bob Thomas Ford, we have daily "Managers Meetings" each morning so that all departments sit together in order to review all pending customer transactions, concerns or needs so that everyone knows the priorities to be addressed for the day. This ensures that whether a customer's purchase, service or body shop needs require another department's involvement, that all the those department managers are aware of it so that they can follow-up. Our goal is always your satisfaction. Your loyal and repeated business is the ultimate reward! Thanks again for your very positive review!
I go to Bob Thomas Ford for all my service needs. Their expert work and advice has allowed me to stay with my Explorer for 200,000 miles. Without hesitation... I went to Bob Thomas Ford looking to replace my Explorer not knowing exactly which model I really wanted. The staff was so attentive and knowledgable they listened to how I use my cars and helped narrow down my choices. I drove 5 cars that day, both new and used. It came down to either one of the certified used cars they had or to go with a new one. In the end I chose a new Edge. The whole process was seamless from start to finish. I never felt rushed or pressured. When I asked if they could have it ready today, no problem. The car was ready by the time we finished the paperwork. Then they took the time to make sure I understood all the new Syc systems and walked me through the settings. While all this was going on, the service department was working on my 200,000 mile Explorer that I intend to turn over to my son. That too was done by days end even though I procrastinated on whether to fix it or not. I left feeling very satisfied with the whole process and love the Edge.

Last month I was in the market for a new car. I spent a lot of time online researching what I wanted. I was downsizing cars as well, and was pretty sure... what I was looking for and the price range I wanted to stay within. I only went to one dealer, and Lexi (at Bob Thomas) was an excellent choice. She listened to my needs, did not try to upsell me and the overall experiences was low stress and very pleasant! I was overjoyed with all the financial aspects of the deal, along with the financing. No complaints at all and I love my Fiesta! and one more thing...I had put off buying a car because I was afraid of a bad experience (after having many over the years); I would recommend (and will go back) to Bob Thomas anytime.

Call dealership before taking long trip (100 miles) to see a used car. Was told that the vehicle was still available. Upon arriving at the dealership to... see the vehicle was informed that the manger had taken the car home for the weekend to show it to prospective buyer and had sold it. Apparently left hand does not know what the right had is doing in this dealership.
There’s nothing more important to the success of any business than a satisfied customer. At Bob Thomas Ford we take every effort to not just meet but ...exceed customer expectations. We’ve been much better than our competition as evidenced by being awarded Ford’s President’s Award two out of the past three years. Even so, there are times when even our best efforts fall short of customers’ expectations for reasons that are beyond our control. Most often, it’s the customer that’s dissatisfied with a sales or service experience to be the most vocal in expressing their frustration. Rather than dismiss a customer’s negative feedback, it’s important for all to know that it’s the negative feedback, as rare as it is, that helps us make an even greater effort to address the original complaint in order improve future customer’s experience. Bob Thomas Ford’s online inventory is updated every day and for many websites it’s updated continuously on a live basis as inventory status changes. We’re also one of the few dealerships that provide actual new vehicle photos for inventory in stock compared to the majority of dealerships that rely on using factory stock photos. In addition, whenever we have a deposit on a vehicle and the pending deal is considered firm, the vehicle is immediately removed from our available online inventory. The last thing we want is to receive Internet inquiries for a vehicle that we know is sold! On rare occasions, a vehicle may arrive at the dealership and is sold within hours. Should this happen over a weekend, as in this case, a customer may make a long drive to the dealership only to find that the vehicle has been sold already to another customer. We do the best that we can to make sure that the information we provide is accurate but sometimes a vehicle’s availability can change within hours and when it’s over a weekend, difficult to update online immediately. At Bob Thomas Ford, our goal is to always exceed customers’ expectations. On the rare occasions when we don’t, we want to know so that we can prevent it from happening again.
