For the most part, this dealership is not bad and are legitimate. I could be picky about certain things with my car purchases and the years I’ve been with them, however at the end of the day, they always take care of me as a valued customer and I appreciate the service.
Car buying has always been a nerve wracking experience for me. The sheer number of decisions to make, and the fear of making a poor long term decision have always made me shy of vehicle lots. The salesperson was really an advocate for my investment-kept an eye out for my price range, and gave me full disclosure on vehicles.
I drove off the lot in a fantastic pre-owned vehicle with zero worries, and zero fear. I felt I received more than just a means from point A to point B. I received peace of mind, and a sense of trust-that I can always turn to Terry's for anything I need!
Special thanks to Janet for being so wonderful!
My truck was in the shop longer than stated. When I returned the loaner vehicle, the service technician inspected the loaner vehicle with a fine tooth comb before giving me the keys to my vehicle. I had left some papers in the loaner so I went back. There was a gentleman returning a loaner and picking up his vehicle. The service technician asked the gentleman was everything ok and is the tank full. The gentleman said yes. The service technician handed the gentleman his keys and said thank you. The service technician did not inspect this man car before he was given the keys to his vehicle. Maybe because I'm a woman? Maybe because I'm an African American? Not sure, however, this didn't sit well with me.
We bought 2 used cars just a few weeks apart (one for me, one for my son), and the experiences at the 2 different dealerships could not have been more different. We will come back to Rod Baker Ford again and highly recommend this dealership. We worked with Ryan in sales and Steve in finance. Both were very personable, answered questions, and explained everything very thoroughly. We never felt pushed, and we sincerely appreciate how careful Steve was when explaining every aspect of the financing, especially because at the other shifty dealership , that other finance person tried to cheat us in multiple ways so we had to triple check the math and have inflated charges removed. The interest rate we were given at Rod Baker Ford was 4 points lower than what the other dealership gave us, coming from the same lender and using the same credit score and a similar car price. Car buying can be a very stressful situation since it is such a huge purchase, and you really want to buy from people who are trustworthy. The staff at Rod Baker Ford are good people -- it's worth it to check them out even if it is a drive!
My experience at Ron Tirapelli Ford was excellent! My salesman Javon and general sales manager Robert were very accommodating and patient. They made sure that they weren't only selling a car but building a relationship. WAY TO GO TIRAPELLI TEAM!!
From the moment I walked through the doorway, Wilkins was a dream come true. Ed Chwal got the pricing I wanted and the entire deal signed, sealed and delivered in a few short hours. Ed was nothing short of incredible. If I could give him alone five stars I would. He walked me through every step and made me feel extremely confident about my purchase. He not only showed me how to use each and every aspect of the interior, but also showed me how to maintain the exterior. Ed's knowledge of the vehicle and the process were astounding. I have never felt better about buying anything. He also went out of his way to secure an accessory that I really wanted. I was going to head to another dealership and go with another brand, but I chose Mazda because Ed showed me and convinced me that I was making the right decision with Mazda.
I worked with Gregg Elmore and it was a pleasure to work with him. Very knowledgeable and went the extra mile for me. Great Job-Thx
