    I first heard of and engaged with Charles Gabus Ford when buying my 2011 Ford Fiesta. Through that experience I met and worked with Less Sharp. His professionalism and people skills not only with me, but also my wife brought us back when looking for a new car for my wife. We purchased a new Ford Taurus Sho in 2012 also working with Less. Our experience with your service department, service staff, sales staff and loan personal have all be a extremely positive one so when it became time to look to replacing the Fiesta it was a easy choice, we called Less and as always we were taken care of and purchased a Ford Focus Titanium. This experience was no less positive than our previous ones. We will be coming back to Charles Gabus Ford for all our new and used car needs.

    Erika was so personable, wonderful, and knowledgeable in answering any questions I had in regards to my new car in email/texts the few days before I came down from Minnesota to pick my car up! Also, both Jeff and Austin were really great in going over everything I needed to know in regards to my new Ford Taurus before I left the dealership!

    All of our questions were answered. Since we live about 2 hours away, we were able to have the price and paperwork done over the phone and internet so that when we arrived the process went very quickly.
