Cloninger Ford dealership had a great selection and no pressure sales team. As we had not traded vehicles in 16 years we were a bit apprehensive of what we would encounter. Not only does Ford Motor continue to build a great product, their sales team is well trained in explaining the operation and function of all the extras that come with new vehicles today. Highly recommend Cloninger Ford of Morganton.
We live in Black Mountain but drive to Morganton for service on my Ford C-Max rather than go to Asheville Ford, where we found the service department to be rude and impersonal. The service department manager, Wayne, makes sure the job is done right and the coupons they send make the price comparable to any other oil service center.
Dear Mr Greene,
My wife and I wanted to say thank you for your professionalism and the professionalism of your staff. You and your team made buying our new 2018 Ram 3500 diesel crew cab 4x4 a very easy and pleasant experience.
Prior to coming to John Green Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram,
We had spent the last three days searching and trying to buy this exact truck and do so under budget. We had traveled 5-6 hours a day, to three states and at least eight dealerships. Each of these dealerships had the truck we wanted in stock. Each was given an offer by us for said truck and subsequent negotiations ensued. Some negotiations were short and some were marathons that lasted hours in the store and went on for days.
We walked into your showroom tired, beaten and discouraged. I told your salesman, Dave we were going to have to “speed date” a truck buy. He laughed and said he’d make the process as easy as possible.
To say he and you did would be an understatement. In less than an hour we completed the process. We bought the truck we wanted and stayed under budget. You made many concessions to close the deal,
Not the least of which was making us the strongest offer of any dealership for our trade. A full 10% higher than the next highest. There was very little back and forth. You made us an offer through Dave and we countered. Instead of sitting behind your desk or the one way mirror like other dealerships you came out and greeted us. We had a chat like we’d known each other for years as we whittled down the difference. You gave a little and we gave a little. We’d have liked to buy the truck for a little less and I’m sure you’d like to sell it for a little more. At the end of the day, I’m confident I got the very best deal anywhere this side of the Mississippi.
All I can say is wow. The irony of the whole situation is your dealership is one of the closest to us yet was the last one, obviously, we visited. We were down to one more if we were unsuccessful at your place and we would have to widen our search.
Thank you sir.

I drove an hour to trade my Mercedes for a Lexus they had taken in on trade and although the negoations started out slow and we couldn't come to an agreement that night, Jonathon said they would try and get some clarification on the value of my car and get back with me the next day. So I drove home that night thinking Yeah Yeah Sure, Whatever. I'd heard that before. Sure enough though Jonathon called the next morning and after just a little bit more negoation we were able to come to an agreement and the deal was done. I drove back at that point and picked up the car. I say all that to say that even though they could not make a deal that worked for me that night, they kept trying to get me a deal I would be happy with. I've bought quite a few cars from the so called upper end car dealers in and around Charlotte and never has it been so simple and easy to just go in and purchase a car. Oh and by the way, during that night while I was waiting to hear back the price had dropped on the car on line and although they didn't know that. When I brought it to their attention thinking it would " No you've ask for to much already, the deal is what it is " But no, they honored it without question. These are just really good people to deal with.
So if you ever need a deal on a vehicle go and see Jonathon Arrowood. As they say " You'll be glad you did " But if your not go back and see them I'll bet they make it right.
Joe and Michael were the best and most friendly to work with. I had probably at least a million questions and neither ever made me feel as if I was bothering them. They even stayed open late to do our paperwork so we could get the car on a Friday night.
We purchased our third vehicle from Cars Plus. Pat was so helpful and it was a very easy process. We will always get our cars from Cars plus. Thank you for being so honest and making it actually enjoyable !!
This was one of the best experiences I have had buying a car. Dillon was able to help me get the exact Escape I had been looking for! The financing guy (I am sorry, his name is Escaping (LOL) me) was great too. I would definitely recommend this dealership and Dillon to anyone looking to get into a new or used vehicle. Thanks again guys!!
I just want to thank Jason and Devron Cummings for all the help they gave me in finding the Ford Explorer I wanted. These were some awesome guys. If you would like to buy a car without having a pushy salesman then you need to go by and see these guys at Cloninger Ford.
I used both their local store and their website in searching for cars. I was very surprised that when i submitted a question late one night and was called within one hour. The Sales person was very knowledgeable about their stock.
Great experience , treated with respect and valued
