Absolutely the very best, most awesome, buying experience on the planet, EVER! These folks know how to let the process breathe...no PUSH, no PULL, NO BULL. Our sales guy Nick is as professional as they come without being a "salesman", very relate-able and honest. Understand we were out and about doing some Black Friday shopping without really needing anything. We stopped in to do a few test drives as this dealership had all 3 sedans we were considering (Cadillac, Lincoln and Buick) to purchase NEXT YEAR, not this year. After looking they didn't have (on the lot) the Buick LaCrosse with the large moonroof or sunroof...which ever its called. Nick said they had one in the wash bay.....BOOM...test drive done!!! My husband and I love this vehicle and were extremely excited that we made an offer and it was done!! Their finance guy Alex is the ONLY finance guy you will ever want to work on your half in these situations....totally and completely painless!! IF you are in the market for a domestic certified used vehicle, go here----you will NOT regret it!

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.
John Kaminski was extremely helpful from the first time I was in to just even look at options for a truck that I did not expect to get until further down the road but within a a month or two I found I needed a new vehicle sooner than expected. He was great with helping find a truck and opened me up to options I had never even considered before. He was able to set me up with new tires and extra after waiting a week for a sensor to be repaired (the wait was not their fault it was out sourced places issue). He helped make sure my sister who referred me got her referral money and was cool to just talk with about things we had in common and I will be coming to see him for my next vehicle as well. I should note Matt was very helpful in John's absence on one day inparticular.
Good ride and want to buy

This car was great and I usually don’t do ford cars... this changed my mind and I’m definitely coming back for it. I am very glad I got to experience this because I wa spooking everywhere for a car and this just might be where I will buy it. Thank you so much!
John was awesome in helping us find the perfect car for us. I leased three vehicles from another dealer and will never go back to them (Betten Baker) because the last time, we called ahead and told them exactly what we wanted and made an appointment to save time and it still took six hours. This time, we contacted John at lakeside, he had the cars ready when we showed up. We decided on a Buick Enclave and drove it home...45 minutes later. Amazing team!!!
cute and comfortable

Great car for my needs. Lots of space, drives beautifully and handles marvelously. Economic fuel usage, and the rear view camera is great. Highly recommend.
I went in to see Bart he took care of me and sold me the perfect car. He was polite and super helpful I’ll recommend him to all my friends!!
It was the best car for the money.

I liked this 2010 Escape so much that I purchased a 2018 Ford Escape on 5 December 2018. Unfortunately, the 2010 was totalled September 2017 which is why I bought another. However, I do not like the 2018 vehicle design. This 2018 reminds me of a fish without its fin. There is less rearview vision with the 2018, than with the 2010. I keep hoping Ford will become original again and get square! Otherwise, Ford Escape looks like a Toyota! And, that is not good.
It was super easy and super friendly!! Thank u so much Bart luft for our new car we love it!! Can't wait to go show it off!!
2013 not a great year for this car
by Ry98 from LITTLETON, CO
December 20, 2018
This car had a lot of mechanical issues, and I'm guess it's because this was the first year for this design. I would recommend getting at least a year before or after 2013 for this model, just to try and avoid these issues.
New Truck was out of alignment and Sync phone connection was muffled when talking to someone on the phone. Truck was aligned and Sync problem fixed in less than 1 1/2 hours. Great Service.
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.
I brought my car in for an oil change. As usual everything was excellent. I know I can count on good service. They are thorough in checking out my car.
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!
Taylor Henkel was a great help in making my buying a used car very easy. He was patient and understanding, worked on getting me what I wanted and out the door on time. He delivered my SUV today went over all the dashboard instruments and even put my plate on. He went as far as filling the tank and bring me a 12 pack of pop. I would like to thank him again for a great experience at the Ford dealership.
This is my second Escape

I had a 2009 loved it now i bought a 2016 Escape could nt be happer roomy great pickup very good on gas love the new design and the backup camera and i can sinc my phone to bluetooth im in heaven.
Positive buying experience. I was able to do most of the legwork through email. Salesman valued my business and made the buying experience easy. Would highly recommend this dealership and salesman John Sweeney.
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.
Brought my vehicle in for tire rotation and an oil change. As usual everything went great! I have never had any problem or issue with Grand Haven Preferred Ford. I have been satisfied every time. Good service, nice people and good price. Don Blackmer in service is always friendly, helpful and takes good care of my car.
I highly recommend Grand Haven Perferred Ford and Don Blackmer for any of your vehicle needs!

It has been an amazing car no problems. Plenty of power for what it is. It also does pretty good on gas. It’s been a great little family car for a small family. No problems whatsoever.
Always surprised how fast my oil change, inspection, and tire rotation goes! Barely have time to get comfortable in the waiting area and settle in with something to read and it’s time to head out again! Thanks to Don and the service staff at Preferred Ford!
Most Reliable SUV I’ve Owned
by irisheyes5193 from North Brookfield, MA
December 25, 2018
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!!
Loved working with John Sweeny. He was very fair and honest and not pushy. He took his time with us and answered any questions we had. I would give this dealership two thumbs up.
GREAT VALUE - BIG SUV ABILITY IN A SMALLER PACKAGE
by FL Aquaguy from Wellington, FL
December 12, 2018
This is a great vehicle. I was surprised at how roomy the interior is and the storage/passenger room available. This is the smaller 1.6 L turbo engine and it has more than enough power to drive the highway safely! Nice ride, very quiet! Love the dashboard design-looks super and has a lot of electronic stuff! Handles great, very stabile at low and highway speeds. Got lucky with this car, highly recommend it. Great gas mileage too.
I love my Jeep and loved the friendly service at Grand Haven. Also love the service with maintenance on my Jeep. GREAT PEOPLE. I trust Nick Rynberg and his great team with all my questions and needs. Alot better than Muskegon Dodge dealership!
Very happy with the Ford Escape!
by James from Fox Lake

The Ford Escape has excellent gas mileage for a compact SUV! It handles very well, sporty and has a responsive acceleration from the turbo feature. There is actually a lot of room in the back to put all my camping gear!
Brought my Jeep in for service and had to leave it for a few days, waiting for parts. The Used Car Manager, Nick Rynberg, was awesome about making sure that I got to where I needed to be for my job. I bought my Jeep from Nick, and I feel like he's still looking out for me. That's a great way to make sure that I come back!
Love my Escape

I have drove an escape since 2003 and it will be the only kind of car I buy. I love the comfort and style of my Escape.
