It was time to trade in our 2008 Ford Edge, so we went online shopping. We saw a car that caught our eye and decided to stop in and check out Thrifty, based on a friends recent experience. The car we originally wanted to see had already sold, so we strolled the lot with Mike to see what was available. We looked at a Ford Explorer then a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Very easy going, no pressure whatsoever. We fell in love with the Jeep and purchased the same day! So easy and customer friendly. Easily the best buying experience we've ever had!! Kudos to Mike & Bruce for making this an easy, wonderful purchase!!

This is an overall great car. It is very comfortable and has plenty of storage space for the size of the car. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
My old car literally bit it on a Sunday. By Thursday I was driving a QUALITY car. Bruce & Mike listened to my needs and I currently have an Awesome Car!! I will return & recommend to all my family & friends!
Michael Tavares did a fantastic job in helping me locate an F150. He was always courteous, professional, and very patient in dealing with me in my search process.
While this time I ended up finding a vehicle at another dealer that was geographically closer to me, I would not hesitate to recommend Michael to anyone in the area looking for a new vehicle. Next time that I am in the market, he is sure to be my first call.
Driving in comfort without the price

This car is great. Drives well, handles well, quiet cabin. 3 stars for interior design as I have the titanium trim level and am not a huge fan of the shiny plastic portion of the dash, would have liked it more matte.
David made our car buying service relatively painless. He walked us through everything and helped us buy our perfect car. They found us financing when other dealers couldn't...I highly suggest this dealership.

I love my 2016 Escape. It's just the right size for my needs. It's has good looks and is comfortable to drive. The interior controls are within easy reach and easy to use. I love the navigation system and it is easy to use. I'm very pleased with this great SUV. I trade in my sport sedan because my old joints did not allow me to slip easily into it. My Escape allows me the ability to slide right in.
We had the best experience at Balise Ford. Our salesperson Peter Palubinski was great! He was very personable and made the experience seamless. Peter took the time to go over the vehicle we chose. I highly recommend this place
Cute Future Family Car

This car was purchased with a future family in mind. It is very roomy and has a large back trunk area. I regularly drive to and from New Jersey and the seats are very comfortable. I used to get back aches about halfway into the trip but I don't even notice any aches with this car. I love the foot-activated lift gate.. great for loading and unloading groceries! I've been getting pretty decent gas mileage for an SUV (24.6 mpg). I'm happy with this car and I'm sure I'll have years of safe & enjoyable driving!
I nelong to am Explorer forum amd after having sveral peoblems with my 2016 Explorer Sport, I decided to purchase the extended warranty. Lombard Ford had the best pricing so I have them a call Emma was awesome on the phone and made it a quick and easy experience. I couldn???t have asked for anything more.

There's nothing like a new car after 18 yrs in an old buick lesabre.It was time for a change and the Escape caught my eye when we were on the lot.I'm happy!
Vroom rushed me thru the process of purchasing a vehicle from them. Had strict requirements of receiving payment within 48 hours. I was rushing my loan department to get my paperwork completed ahead of other customers in fear of losing the vehicle I wanted to another buyer. The loan paperwork and a check had to be overnighted to Vroom to meet their qualifications. THEN CAME TIME FOR THEM TO GET THE THINGS I NEEDED TO ME!!! I HAD TO REPEATEDLY ASK ABOUT THE ARRIVAL OF MY TRADE IN TO THEIR FACILITY (which they kept telling me for 15 days that it hadn???t reached their facility??!! Yeah right)!! THEY DRUG THEIR FEET ON SENDING THE PAYOFF OF MY TRADE IN SO LONG THAT THE 15 Day PAYOFF THEY WERE QUOTED EXPIRED AND I HAD TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE FROM MY OWN ACCOUNT!! I WAITED 26 DAYS TO RECEIVE TITLE PAPERWORK!! BUT THE PAPERWORK THEY NEEDED FROM ME HAD TO BE SENT WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS!! YOU SHOULD GIVE AS GOOD AS YOU EXPECT, VROOM!! I HAD TO KEEP REQUESTING A REFUND OF THE $500 THEY CHARGED TO MY CREDIT CARD TO HOLD THE VEHICLE FOR A WEEK!!! LASTLY, the 2nd person I dealt with following the sales person was RUDE.
I just picked up my new car at CarMax of Hartford and, I have to say, this was the best car-buying experience I have ever had. I had found a Ford Explorer that I wanted to see on their lot. I put a hold on the vehicle on their website, very early in the morning. By 9am the same morning, I was contacted by Rocco Toce, the most awesome sales person around. I have bought many vehicles through the years and he is the top of the list! We went to look at the truck and he had it clean and ready for us to test drive. We loved the truck but it just didn’t have all the options that we were looking for. I found the exact Explorer we wanted in New York and Rocco jumped right in to help us transfer the vehicle to Hartford. I have to admit, it IS a leap of faith to pay the transfer fee upfront before even seeing the vehicle in person. Rocco jumped in and took over. He spoke to the other CarMax and had them check every part of the vehicle out. I felt very comfortable after he called and told me the truck sounds good. My Explorer made it to Hartford very quickly and Rocco immediately checked it out and let us know it was perfect! I went to see it yesterday. It was beautiful and in the best shape. Rocco took us through the entire car and never rushed us through anything. He sent our Explorer to detailing while my 2009 Silverado was appraised. I received a fair price for my trade and the deal was smooth and handled professionally by the staff. I’m pretty sure I have not had a better car buying experience. Rocco and the team at Hartford CarMax could not have done more to make our experience the best. I did a ton of research about CarMax like I’m sure everyone does. I drove over an hour to work with them and I am so glad I did. We walked out of there with a great, shiny Ford Explorer and the greatest car buying experience!
quick and easy, polite people comfortable wait room

This vehicle is perfect for a small family. I’ve never had a major problem with mine since I bought it. Only small mainrenance problems like tail light being out. This car is really comfortable and has all the new features I was wanting. It’s perfect!
Leased my car in NJ where I was living at that time. My services have been done at Hoffman with pick up and delivery of car. Very satisfied with service.
Absolutely LOVE this vehicle!!!!!!!!

Superb gas mileage, plenty of room, easy access to controls. Heated seats , a backup camera, and ability to make a call simply by pressing a button an the steering wheel and speaking. Also this car will call 9-1-1 if a significant accident is detected (I think if the air bags deploy)
Nice staff and genuinely tried to get you that new to you car that you are looking for. What you see is what you get, no mixing of words or double talk just straight sales. A must stop on your car shopping list.
Cindy was a great help when my boyfriend needed a new car ASAP. He was approved and she helped with all the paperwork and all the back and forth. She is so sweet and very professional, also very personable. Great people and would recommend to all my family and friends :) THANK YOU CINDY <3
