I had a wonderful experience taking my car in for some long overdue service. I was made aware that it would take a couple of hours to complete, and I didn't want to spend all that time at the dealership. Not being an app savvy person that uses Lyft and/or Uber services, I had asked my son to take me to the nearby mall while the car was being worked on. Unfortunately, he wasn't available. He did mention to ask the dealership for a courtesy vehicle. After dropping off my car and before I even had the chance to ask about a courtesy vehicle, Jessie had asked if I would like to be taken to the mall. This made my day, much easier than filling out paperwork for a loaner. On top of taking me to the mall, they called to let me know when the work was done, and where they would pick me up. I'm so happy I purchased my car at Ziegler Ford.

Very comfortable, sporty,roomy and smooth driving. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a bigger car. I am very pleased to own this car
The wait time is the worst. I have to wake up extra early every time I need to get an oil change trying to be the first in line. But the people are great! They try to help make your wait comfortable. They have free coffee and popcorn in the waiting area. I purchased my vehicle from this dealer less than a year ago and have been getting it serviced here since then.

This van meets our needs for comfort, roominess, ease of drivability and overall style. We love that it has all the gadgets at an affordable price
Had terrific service. My repair was impeccable. It was done in the time and cost estimated. And, I was shown more about Blue tooth and navigation system by the owner of the dealership.
Fun to Drive and Reliable

Very practical for my lifestyle (ie. dogs, camping, biking), but also comfortable and fun to drive. The acceleration is great and interior features are great. Built in coolers in the back seat make it ideal for football tailgating.
This is a decent car for the price. It's basic and has been reliable for the two years I've had it. The basic warranty is only 36,000/3 year. The warranty is the only thing I would want changed for this car.
Mike is extremely knowledgeable about Mercedes models. He is very prompt with questions and responses and follows up. A pleasure to deal with. The two vehicles I was pricing out were competitive nationally.
Worst car I’ve ever owned
by DJ Dave from Willows, California

Sold it at 21,000miles and 5 yrs old.SRT model. Green with envy color scheme. $51,000. Bought new. Spent way too much time at the dealership chasing multiple electrical problems that never got Fixed. Stereo lacking quality sound. Touch screen sad. Traded for a new Mazda- a very reliable car !
I purchased a lightly used Volkswagen Touareg from Ed. The interior was expertly detailed and the car was better then advertised. Thanks Ed! We will be back.
Second time owner
by Chris H from Suffolk, Va

I genuinely love my Durango. I currently have a GT V6
And previously owned a Citadel V6. My current Durango is my personal car, as I have a company car for everyday. Since I don’t want to drive the kids in my Mercedes sedan I picked up another SUV. It’s comfortable, reliable and I love the style. The controls are intuitive and I will say that UConnect is much better than the system in my wife’s Honda or my company E Class.
Mark went through all the features of the car and was able to answer all my questions. Appreciate his effort and how easy the whole thing was.
Nothing to compare with

If you up for Large muscle classic sedan, you simply have no choice, it is one of a kind. Oh, sure, for x3 $$$ amount you can get BMW 7-series but will you be able to? :) Power, Torque, no turbo and no turbo lag, regular gas, 8-speed automatic with SXT Plus package... Imagine Heated Coffee, cooled Cola, remote start with pre-heated seats and automatic climate in the winter, seats and mirrors with memorry adjust themself before you even open the door... you never pull keys out of your pocket, ever! Bumps on the road.. what bumps...? Gears shifting... what gears? .. I can continue... but i wont. go get one!
I loved how helpful the associates are. I never felt pressured, and they never attempted to sway me from what I wanted.

2017 Scat Pack R/T Hemi 392 Charger in Redline Red!!
This car was so sexy & fun to drive!
430+ wheel horsepower would pin you to the seat (if the tires would hook) yet feel like a 4-Cyl Accord while cruising at 75 on the Hwy. Decent gas mileage for a V-8, high horsepower car. Although it's hard not to floor it everywhere to hear the monstrous exhaust tone.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this car!
Purchased it by special order from the dealer for just under $40k it was an absolute bargain!
Two sales consultants did an excellent job - Jim and Jorge. When I called about a particular used car I'd seen on Carfax, Jim took the time to make and email a video "tour" of the car for me. When I arrived from out of town, I stopped at two dealerships. My experience at Max Madsen's was great and far surpassed the customer service at the other dealership. Jorge was there to answer questions about the car. He allowed me to consider the car without the dreaded pressure one sometimes gets at a car dealership. Following my purchase, Jim followed up with a thoughtful email welcoming me to the Max Madsen "family." With sales consultants like Jim and Jorge, you can't go wrong!
fastest car I've ever owned

This car will do what it is advertised to do...smoke tires and eat up mustangs and cameros and it gets 24-25 mpg on the highway! Fun to drive!
This was our second car purchase from Mike and we were just as happy this time as we were last time. Our first time we met Mike we almost bought from him. We were going through financing and then decided to not buy. We felt bad for how it went down. A few months later we returned. We were a bit worried that how things went the first time might affect how he would treat this time. Well he was great and went through with a purchase of a Pacifica. It took a few trips because we have 3 kids and Mike was patient and very understanding. This last purchase took a total of 2 hours and we again are totally pleased . He has very good product knowledge and listens to what we want. We like his down to earth demeanor and that he isn???t pushy. We have given his name out to several of our friends and hopefully he will get a few sales from them. Finding a car salesman who is honest and not just out for the sale is hard to do. Mike is that kind of person. Thank you again Mike and we will be back when we need another vehicle.
Pros and cons
by ArAmas from Winston Salem, NC

I’m currently on year 7 with my Journey (3.5, SXT, AWD) and have been very satisfied with my purchase. (Bought new) pros: LOVE the service dept @ my dealership, good towing capacity, gas mileage is on point, interior hiding compartments. I will never own another vehicle without heated seats and a remote start!! Also, performance in the snow is amazing. I have a tow hitch and roof racks for more versatility. Cons: blind spots galore, no full size spare tire, cold weather causes her to be ’sensitive’, nowhere to put things within reach (purse, phone, etc)
Wickstrom Ford is a great place to buy a vehicle from. Kelsey was very helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend buying a vehicle from Wickstrom Ford.
Listen to the people who own a Journey!!!
by Lancem46 from Sanger TX

The Journey exceeds all our family needs!! Plenty of room up front and the 2nd row. 3rd row suited for kids. Very good ride and love the steering! It turns like a small suv but has the room and comfort of a larger suv. The engine is plenty peppy enough for me. Had it fully loaded with people over the Christmas holidays to go look at lights. Had no trouble accelerating to get on the the highway or keeping up with traffic. The so-called experts are so far off!!! Absolutely love it!!!
What is the best experiences we have had in purchasing a car. Shannon was very helpful and we got the car we want. There was no pressure at all. This is the way carbines should be.

I've had the car for a week and so far am loving it. I love the way it looks and it drives - no sharp/jarring brakes or gas. Plenty of power when I need it, love the technology. The bluetooth phone pairing is really easy to set up and the audio quality is great - better than talking on the phone directly. It does a great job understanding regular speech the first time and I've not yet had to repeat a command, very intuitive. It has USB ports and regular chargers, Android Auto/Uconnect makes it easy to use all of your phone's familiar apps. I also like how you sit up a bit higher than most cars, helps with visibility. The one thing I wish it had was blind-spot monitoring. That would be helpful but overall for the price I can't complain.
I felt Josh was knowledgeable, honest and straightforward about the strengths and weaknesses of the car, as well as the price. I felt good when I purchased my vehicle and didn???t second guess my choice or the purchase price.
Bad to the bone
by Durango Tango from Troy

Black top edition 2018 Durango GT. We love this vehicle. The navigation is easy to use the huge screen on the stereo system is awesome. The whole system is easy to use and user friendly. The interior is awesome grey leather heated seats and steering wheel combined with the remote start. Means no more jumping into a cold vehicle on the very cold days. The interior is very well laid out from cup holders to the smoke supply of storage boxes throughout the vehicle. Very comfortable. The black top edition exterior speaks for itself. Rhe new hood scoop dodge added is a awesome look on these SUVs. I get thumbs up from a lot of drivers on the road. The dual exhaust sounds great and this thing has zero lack of power. The handling is amazing for an SUV. We couldn't have asked for better looking better functioning SUV for our family. Oh and guys you can look cool in a family SUV. This is the one.
John was fantastic! The whole experience was great and not overwhelming. John wasn???t pushy he worked with what I wanted and help me get into an even newer model of the car I was looking at, still in my budget. I had two friends looking for cars and already pointed them in the direction of Bettenhausen! Plus the office staff is super friendly which just makes the experience even better.
I love staying in the Dodge Family!

I’ve leased it for 2 years in 2016, and am leasing another one for another 2 Years. I Love the Journeys and Dodge cars period!
Jose was wonderful to deal with no pressure willing to work with you. Mike finance manager was the best we ever met in that job very nice and down to earth.
SUV that doesn’t feel like it
by Randyb from Greensboro, NC

The Durango looks like an suv on the out side but on the I side, it feels more like a sports car. I love it. It is very plush with all the latest technology. I couldn’t be more pleased with it.
