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.
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.
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
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!!
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!
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.
Tom and Tommy are extremely knowledgeable about their inventory. They go the extra mile for you. They are really easy to deal with . Made the transaction stress free !!! Can???t go wrong with this dealership. Thank you guys it???s been a pleasure.
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!
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
I recently purchased a 2004 Honda Pilot from Nutmeg Auto and was very pleased by the entire process. Any questions were answered quickly and efficently. Patrick went above and beyond with the buying process and Cindy made the final purchase process quick and easy. We walked in, signed the papers, got the keys and drove away. I would highly recommend this dealer and look forward to doing business with them in the future. Jodi LaTorre
Awesome. Very friendly. I will refer my friends to Columbia

Very friendly and helpful staff. I told Andy what i was looking for and he found the perfect car for me. They took the necessary steps to quarentee it Ford certified. The day we picked up our car, everything and everyone was ready for us. After signing papers with Andy, we went to Jake and finished ip the paperwork in a timely manor. PS, dont fall for Jakes spilt coffee on his desk. Andy made sure that i was comfortable and familiar with the car before he sent me on my way. I went to Columbia ford because my sister and nephew just bought vehicles there and reccomended them to me. They were right, Columbia Ford is the place to go when you are looking for a new or used vehicle 👍👍👍👍👍
