    I worked with Ray Trimble for two weeks to get my 2016 Ford Edge Titanium. This is the second time working with Ray and I can't say enough about him. He... is patient and understanding and doesn't push you like the typical car salesman. Both times he worked with me to get exactly what I wanted for the price that I wanted. Ray treats you like a person not just another commission. He went above and beyond even after the deal was closed. We will definitely be using him in a few months when we buy our other car.

    Brought my daughter in for a new car. ( I have been a Downs Ford customer for years ) She had a wonderful experience with everyone who helped her get a... great deal with Gene and Antonio. John was extremely helpful in finding her an unbelievable low rate finance package. Once again, the Downs Ford Team went out of their way to make this a pleasant experience.

    Many variables must be taken into consideration when purchasing or leasing a vehicle. John Duncsak presented all my options clearly and with the upmost... professionalism. I was more than confident I was getting an excellent deal that was mutually beneficial.
