Really good dealership. Enjoyed my time there. The salesman that helped me was excellent (Cody Caudill) I would recommend him to anyone. This place does not push sales. They let me look at what I wanted and didn't try pushing one on me that I didn't want.

Like this car a lot. First escape. Sporty, and lots of options. Leather interior is great when you have grandkids! The eco boost is the way to go.
I Called to see when parts were to be shipped fron Ford, and was told that the part was in--- & they replaced it that same afternoon.

This is my second Escape and it's great. I loved my 2010 and shopped across several brands to replace it last year. It came down to a Hyundai Tuscon or the new Escape. The Escape is just a little nicer and the price was the tipping point. I have an SE with the Sport Package and Sync3. It's an improvement over the older Escape because of improved view out and level of technology. The new Ford Pass app is a huge plus, that includes Remote Start for free!
I bought a 2016 Ford F-150 from Jim Schmitz back in early July. I recently had the brakes replaced with new rotors and had to work done by my mechanic in the town that I live in. I contacted Jim Schmidt about this problem and they have taken care of over half of the bill or paying for the parts and they realized it was a mistake on their part work should have been done originally and they made it right with me I am writing this review into cancel out the other two because they came forward and made it right with the customer( myself).
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.
Everything went well with the purchase of my 2017 Expedition EL. We took delivery the day after our visit because they were to have fixed the back-up camera. The back-up camera was faulty with the image being distorted and was identified during test drive with agreement to have it fixed. Upon delivery, on the same day, the camera again failed and has continued to not be functional (this is day 2). I'm not to worried because they said they would make sure it was fixed so I will write a follow up to this to let you know how it turns out.
That said I feel based on my initial experience they will be true to their word. Look for a review once it does or doesn't get repaired. I do want to say I dealt with AJ (sales) and he was great to work with, always following up and keeping me up to date over a lengthy period. At this time I would recommend him as a great representative of the dealership being knowledgeable and easy to work with.

The escape was a good addition. It a comfortable car and it the first time for keyless and a remote start. It’s a very reliable car and good in bad weather.
Excellent dealership with great customer service, low prices, and a really large inventory with the best selection of used vehicles we've seen. I was able the find the Car I wanted and at low price.
Ford Escape Great mid size suv for money
by Gary H from Lowell mi
January 11, 2019
Vehicle has many standard options and good power and torque. Good Options on the SE model. Only thing that could be better is the layout and lighting for video screen, the icons need to be bigger and shift lever panel isn’t lighted. Everything else in the interior is great.
I would recommend anyone looking for a vehicle to see Jim Schmidt Ford. These are good people, they are honest and there is no pressure. They are not the type of sales people or dealership you may be used to. Honesty and decency are on the top of the list for their employees and this dealership. If you are in the market I urge you to make a visit.
Most reliable and comfortable car Ive ever driven
by Hannah k from Fort Worth TX

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!
I bought a 2016 F-150 from Jim Schmidt Ford this week. I had looked at a lot of trucks online, visited several dealers and attempted to buy at one other dealer. Terry and the whole team at Jim Schmidt Ford made the process hassle free and easy going. There wasn’t a high pressure “typical” process that I’ve experienced at other dealerships. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend Terry to others.
This is the sturdiest, well built car I've had.

This SUV is great. Super lumbar. Drives great. Doors are very heavy so I feel very safe. Well built. No problems. Handles well on highway.
Excellent dealership with great customer service, low prices, and a really large inventory with the best selection of used vehicles we've seen. Really appreciated our sales rep AJ! He absolutely earned our business, sending pictures prior to our arrival, very knowledgeable about the vehicle, and easy to work with. Most of all, we appreciated AJ staying late for us to complete the sale! Their family-friendly kids play area was also very much appreciated! He even texted us to make sure we made it home okay after a pretty long trip back home. Would definitely recommend Jim Schmidt Ford to anyone.
One of the best cars I ever owned.

Very happy with the preformance and all the features that the Escape has. plenty of power with the 2.0 ecoboost engine also love the heated seats and heated steering wheel.
Rick was a perfect salesman. Not too pushy, very informative and friendly. I would definitely refer him. The last time we bought a car from another dealership it took forever. This purchase was very fast!

This car is fun to drive and responsive.

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.
This SUV has surpassed my expectations. I love how it drives, it’s nice & smooth like a luxury car. It’s get almost 24 miles to the gallon. It’s s 4 cylinder but has the “kick” of a 6 cylinder. There’s plenty of room in it. I have the Titanium version and absolutely love the “extras” that I didn’t need but am glad I have now!!! This vehicle has far exceeded my expectations!!
I previously owned an Equinox. When I test drove the Escape I was completely blown away. It was a great ride and I loved the various features. My only complaint is the head rests, they seem to be in the way of sitting comfortably, I'm always hunched forward to avoid them. I have adjusted them, yet it's still annoying. Otherwise the car would get all 5 stars from me.
I have had bad experiences at dealerships in the past and have stayed away from them but my experience here was completely different. The salesperson Don was a very honest and straight forward Salesman. I can definitely tell he has been doing this awhile. I also bought an extended warranty and so glad I did with the high cost of parts and labor anymore. It gives a person peace of mind. I would highly recommend Northtowne Motors in Defiance. Will buy from them again in the future.

Cute Future Family Car
by steph mcd from baltimore, md

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!
