This past December we were in the market for a new Ford Explorer after our old one's engine blew out on the highway. After a less than savory visit to Zumbrota Ford, we found a nice Explorer on cars.com that was over at Milo Peterson Ford. We made the drive without calling as it was not all that far from us and we figured if the one we wanted wasn't available we could look at some others. After getting a little lost trying to find it, we came across it practically sitting in the middle of a corn field. We stepped inside and they made us feel like family, they pulled up the stock number on the ford we saw on cars.com and it was still available. They ran out and warmed-up the car while we chatted with the sales staff inside. After a short test drive we bought that day. Thanks to the Milo Peterson Ford team we left happy customers.

I've only had it 2 days so far I like it a lot

This vehicle so far is just what I was looking for.. Not sure yet how it performs in the snow hopefully it will be great seeing I live in the country with hills and etc..
My wife and I bought an Equinox from your dealership in November of 2015. We worked with Caleb Conger on our sale. He was very patient with us and didn't try to rush us along to help someone else.
This was a large determination for me that we would continue to shop and have all of our vehicles serviced with you folks. I have yet to meet someone at your facility who isn't pleasant and our helpful in one manner or another.

Great vehicle we put 145k on it with no major issu

I wish Ford still made this design. It met all our needs and I would definitely have purchased it again if the current model was as good.
I was traveling through MN from CT to MT, and developed a problem in my van. Ryan S got right on the problem, and Brandon K diagnosed and repaired quickly and very reasonably. The family was able to enjoy the wifi and coffee while they did the work, and the people were wonderfully nice. I was expecting to get a very big bill and a very long time, but was out in 1/4 the time I expected, with a bill 1/4 of what I expected. Can't say enough about the honesty and empathy extended to some desperate travelers. If it were not 1,302 miles from home, I would definitely be back for my next service.

Economical, peppy, functional

For the price you can t beat this SUV. Practical, economical, inexpensive. Hood looking. Lots of power equipment and convincence items. I have two. Both awd.
We bought a 2017 F150.
We were not sure exactly what we wanted.
Tom Richard took all the time we needed to decide which model to get. His knowledge of his product is top notch. He did not try to sell us the highest price truck, just the one that fit our needs.
Used car mgr Dave Towey was very fair with my trade in vehicle.
I LOVED my car buying experience at Rochester Ford. They answered all of my questions (there were many!), secured great financing options for me, and even brought in the vehicle of my dreams from another dealership for me when they didn't have exactly what I wanted on their lot. And they did it all so fast! I definitely go back to Rochester Ford for any other vehicle needs that I have. Thank you everyone for making this not only pleasant, but FUN!!!

Just what I wanted for the price. Will be able to carry musical equipment that I use all the time being a working musician. The size of the back with seats folded down is great.
Tom was able to get me in the car that I wanted and to fit my budget, he was able to answer all of my questions and was very knowledgeable about the features of the car and the engine. I would recommend everyone to him! He does a good job getting you the information and no sale pressure at all! Experienced and great customer service! Not my first car at Rochester ford and definitely not my last! I am a customer for life!

Fit my price range, does everything I really need a car for, will be able to tow a trailer for fishing and duck hunting and was thinking I need a truck, but with this car there is enough room to get the boat, decoys, and gear to the river bottom and back.
Once again, Mike Nelson, Sal Sor my Service Advisor and Ben Russell my Service Technician gave me outstanding service! There is and will always be issues that arise with my vehicle, but I have such confidence in these three people to let me know the problem at hand and what needs to be monitored until the next visit. They're an honest team to work with. I highly advise anyone who needs their car serviced to make an appointment with Rochester Ford.

2017 Ford Escape Titanium Review
Two years no problems year then....
by Silvy from East Meadow NY
May 13, 2019
I’ve leased my 2017 Escape for two years now. The only problems I had with it were a remote key fob that didn’t work. At the two and a half year mark at 14,000 miles the check engine light comes on. Code reading shows a bad coil in the no. One cylinder. Dealer fixed it. Four days later light on again this time it’s the number 4 cylinder. Good no more problems
i like the car but the eco engine is woefully underpowered. Takes Forever to get it going. Space is good and I wish I had gotten the sync 3 entertainment system but sync is ok
All in all it’s nit bad but to make it better you have go go up in trim and of course price
I will not purchase or lease it again.
Rochester Ford was our first stop to look for a used vehicle. A young man by the name of Zach D. came to talk to us. He asked what we were looking for and brought up two cars for us to look at. He was spot on and we ended up buying both of them. Zack was so kind and thoughtful of our needs. He was not pushy and did not try to sell us something we didn’t want. This entire staff at Rochester Ford made buying our cars sush a pleasant experience. It was truly refreshing to see a young man like Zach to be so pleasant and knowledgeable about the different cars that they had. Rochester Ford is our new go to car dealership.

I would highly recommend to anyone, ever.

I absolutely love this vehicle. The 2018 handles easier than the 2016 I previously owned. I also love the white gold color. Ford has truly amazed me with their awesome updates.
I can't say anything bad about my experience at Rochester Ford. I dealt primarily with Tucker and Justin. I had been looking for a specific SUV (a 2015 Ford Edge Sport) for a couple months, and they had one. The only problem was I live 3 hours away. Justine gave me what I thought was a fair trade in price for my vehicle over the phone. I thought once I got there he'd try to find a few minor flaws and offer me less but he honored his offer. Tucker (my salesman) was also very good. I told Tucker I wanted the trade in and purchase to go fast since I lived 3 hours away and didn't want to spend any more time there than necessary. He found ways to speed things up, and most importantly he didn't leave me in a waiting room wondering what was going on, in between seeing the necessary people for the transaction he always kept in touch with me letting me know what to expect. All in all it was worth the 3 hour drive. Thanks guys!

Design, size, cameras, trial of SiriusXM. Smooth ride and well to maneuver. I would recommend highly to friends and family. The radio system is fantastic, as well as the phone/bluetooth features.
Excellent service from Dennis Thompson when I brought in our Accord for a 120K check-up. He was very organized, explained everything clearly, and followed-up to ensure all the work was completed in a timely fashion. Thank you Dennis!
I called to schedule a service appointment for my Honda Civic and I am pleased to say that I am so grateful it was answered by Steven Peters. I told him exactly what I was in need of and he had it configured and quoted within minutes. The day & time I needed to come in was available & I had the comfort of knowing I was able to get a ride to work and back to the Service Station after work. When I arrived, I was pleasantly greeted by Steven and his expertise made me feel at ease. I was called later that day to say that my car was taken care of and that everything went well. When I went to pick up my car, Steven went through every detail of the service and answered all of my questions. He took time to go through everything & made sure I had all discounts that could be applied. Being a single mother, my car is a necessity and I wanted it well taken care of....which happened at Tom Kadlec and the assistance of Steven Peters. Thank you!
Dennis Thompson was very helpful and answered all our questions about our recent experience about getting our air bags replaced on the recall. He was very honest with us on the time frame it may take to get this done and offered us the use of a vehicle until we could get ours fixed. Dennis Thompson was very knowledgeable about everything. Thanks Dennis we appreciated your help!!
I want to thank Ron for all his help. He answered my questions before I asked them. Closing paperwork went quickly and smoothly. I have Zoroastrian complaints. He's now my go to guy whenever I'll need another car. Well done Ron. Thanks much.

Great Vehicle for the Price

I am so blessed coming from having no heat to this amazing vehicle is well worth the wait. The axle on my Jeep was separating as I was driving to the Dealership. God blessed me to get there safe. I did not have to drive the Jeep back home.
I have owned two Hondas, a Civic and currently an Accord. I have primarily used Tom Kadlec Honda for all of my maintenance and warranty service needs because of the excellent customer service. Dennis Thompson and his associates are always very attentive and very helpful in assisting their customers. I look forward to continuing my business at Tom Kadlec, thanks again Dennis for the great service.
David helped me choose a great vehicle and he made car shopping fun! I would highly recommend David when you are looking to purchase a vehicle!

Absolute best car buying experience ever

Love the vehicle; exactly what I was looking for. Fit my needs perfectly, super clean and exactly what was described to me over the phone. Super low miles too. Crystal was amazing to work with, honest all the way. Quick and easy. Don’t buy from anyone else. McCarty’s is definitely the place to go and I recommend to everyone. I will definitely be back and won’t go anywhere else.
Luxury Comfort but at a lower price than others...
by Greg from Auburn, WA
April 8, 2019
We love our 2018 Ford Escape! We ended up with the Titanium trim level which has all the "bells and whistles." Comparing it to similar vehicles (Foresters, Sportages, Santa Fes) we have no regrets. With the Escape we feel you get a car that sits a little higher than the others but still has a smooth ride. At the trim level we purchased, we feel like you are driving a luxury vehicle but not near the price of the others base models.
