Dream Process Made Real
November 5, 2018
I have purchased many vehicles in my 55 years of life, but none of those purchasing experiences even come close to level of care and respect I was given at Faricy Ford in Canon City Colorado. My wife and I were exploring and researching vehicle ideas and possibilities as I enter the last four years of my professional career. We were greeted by Mark Petros, a salesman that changed our perception of vehicle buying forever. Mark is a no pressure, non-aggressive, gentle soul that guided our thinking process, encouraged our questions and walked with us during any hesitation we were have about purchasing a vehicle. His personality allowed us to explore ideas and look at vehicles we believe out of our league. We had zeroed in on one particular type and style of truck when we left the Faricy lot that afternoon, but did not want to make a decision yet. The Faricy auto appraiser had already put in writing a fantastic trade-in price on our vehicle that exceeded NADA trade-in value, and they had also been very transparent on the price, savings and rebates on the truck we might be buying. The dealership placed the entire deal on paper and we left thinking about the deal. Mark knew what we were going to do that afternoon when we left, but he never said a single comment or placed pressure to seal the deal. When we left, we headed to another ford dealership closer to our house and looked at other Ford trucks, just as I am guessing Mark thought we would do. Of course, that second experience that afternoon, looking at trucks, turned out just as I expected, negative, devaluing our trade-in and an attempt to make my wife and I feel like we owed it to that dealer to buy the truck we test drove. I produced the deal sheet that Faricy had offered us and it sent this second dealership into a frenzy. The Faricy deal was so good that the manager of the second dealership asked us why we didn't take the Faricy deal. He stated that the Faricy deal was a "smokin hot" deal, then spent a little effort trying to get us to go for their deal. We got up and left, quickly. Shortly after we left that dealership, we called Mark back and asked him if they would be able to find this type of truck that was an F-350, that we had driven at the second dealership, and in his gentle yet confident voice he said "sure". Marked called back at 11 am the next morning and had already found 2 trucks that met our request and the process began. The entire process was topped off with the most pleasant financing experience that any one could ever dream about, with Faricy's Finance Director, Peggy Beck. She too, matched Mark's gentle nature and I enjoyed a full hour of conversation and questions about the finance process and specifics regarding our new truck, our families, our pets and life in general. It was a magnificent financing experience, plus (the best part), she got us a financing rate that was out of this world for my wife and I, and massively lower than what I had expected. It literally choked me up it was such a magnificent rate. I know that I have been lengthy in my summary, but it is important for me to let everyone know that they don't have to settle for a car buying experience that makes you want to avoid the experience altogether. Faricy Ford will change all of that for you right from the beginning, and hold the course throughout the entire experience. In addition you will get a chance to work with two of the most gentle and kind individuals that you will ever come across. Thank You Mark Petros and Peggy Beck for being human beings that considered my wife and I your "guests" as Peggy put it, through this entire buying experience. Thank You Faricy Ford for helping my wife and I create and achieve some closure as I enter into my last four professional years before I retire. You folks are a tremendous partner to have when buying a vehicle.
