Most professional group of people I have ever worked with ! Financing was awesome,fast and efficient . I have never bought from a dealership that had me in and out within 2 hours. No Pressure ! No Hassle ! I was VERY impressed with my experience today . I am even more impressed with the GREAT deal I got on the Dodge Ram truck I drove off the lot with . I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy their next vehicle and I will be back in the future . Pay no attention to some of the petty reviews written here and I noticed there are a few . Go down use some common business sense ,do your research before you buy , and you will find Car Max has it all !
Kia Parkside, Colton, JT, and Matt were nothing short of a blessing to me. I was extremely nervous about purchasing a new car, but they made my experience painless and were very patient with me. Oh & I love my brand new Kia Soul!
Shopped for months for a second car. Find a clean, great running car here. The annoying tire pressure light was on. Dealership replaced the sensor as part of the buying process. Other dealers wouldn't even think of doing that. Also washed and vacuumed the car everytime they touched it. Bought from Stephen Patterson. Great dude!
inquired about used car online. was informed an employee was considering it for his daughter. was later informed employee did in fact buy the car. It was a fun inquiry. I bought a similar car from a private individual later that same day. the online salesman was very professional and polite. I have bought from Reeder before. They have good quality used cars.
Used car needed to be checked out. 21 point inspection found leaking motor sports and oil pan gasket. Asst Svc Mgr contact extended warranty company on my behalf and found these to be covered. I approved repairs and Asst Svce Mgr obtained payment on my behalf.
I had brake system inspected and it was determined that master cylinder needed to be replaced. Asst Svc Mgr again contacted extended warranty company and obtained coverage/payment.
Dealt with 3 other dealerships before being contacted by this one. Was well worth the 90 minute drive to deal with them. Talked to Miranda and Terry Flummer on the phone prior to my arrival. They were very friendly and professional. They listened to my concerns and took the time to look up what I needed. When I arrived at the dealership we worked with Frank Buster. He took the time to look up the truck information I needed to ensure it would pull and haul what we needed. There was no sales pressure. He gave us a fair deal and we left very satisfied with our new truck
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Today the guys at Ole Ben Franklin Motors in Alcoa really saved me. My 2 yr old Lincoln MKZ was showing low battery in the key so I decided to change the batteries in both key fobs. They came apart easily but over 2 hrs later a total of 4 intelligent adults were unable to put them back together, so I am thinking I have to drive all the way into Knoxville to the delearship where I purchased the car. I had company coming and really didn’t have time but my car was useless until I did. So I jumped into my old Ford truck and took off. On the way I passed Ole Ben Franklin Motors so I thought why not try to see if they could do it. I walked in and explained my problem and the first guy asked if I bought the car from them. I said no and he said OK and went right to work on the fob. After a couple of minutes he decided there must be some trick to it and walked me over to Tom Weiss the general manager. Tom immediately smiled at me, took the fob and went to work on it. It took him about 4-5 minutes but he got it together and handed it back to me. I thought I may be pushing my luck a bit but took the other fob out of the bag and asked if he would do that one too. It was in 4 pieces so soon a delightful young named Mitchell walked up and between them both they got the second one back together. THANK YOU TOM AND MITCHELL for your graciousness. I was treated like their best customer ever even though they knew I had never purchased anything from them. They are the kind of people I love doing business with so I will give them a try the next time I need a car.
I had been car shopping for about a week when I found the truck I wanted online at Short-Redmond Ford. At that point I'd been to multiple dealerships and was pretty fed up with dealership tactics. One dealership even politely kicked us out while negotiating a price and discussing warranties offered by a competitor. When I arrived at Short-Redmond Ford I braced myself for yet another onslaught of dealership shenanigans. I was introduced to George who turned out to be the least pushy salesman I'd met which was incredibly refreshing. I told him the truck I wanted and after a test drive we sat down to talk about it. There was really no haggling to be done. The truck was priced amazingly well (I know because I had spent a week poring over similar trucks within 150 mile radius). He showed me a printout of the trucks history as well as a list of similar trucks in the South East with their prices listed so I could see how it compared. It was a great deal. They also offered complimentary oil changes and other services with the purchase even though it was a used truck that wasn't a Ford. I've waited to write a review because honestly it went so smoothly and the dealership experience was so pleasant I was convinced I'd been swindled into buying a lemon. You know the old adage "if it looks too good to be true.....", but in this case it worked out. We're about 3 weeks out and I still love the truck. I would definitely recommend Short-Redmond Ford to anyone looking to buy a vehicle.
It had been a very long time since I had been car shopping & I admit I experienced ticker shock even after surfing the internet on slightly newer cars. Our salesman Donnie carefully guided me through the realities & with no pressure helped me to leave within a few hours at the wheel of a much newer car. Thank you for all your help!
