I had several unpleasant experiences trying to buy a car before FINALLY finding Mark Hartsell at Oak Ridge Nissan. He got me everything we wanted and more! We liked him so much that we decided to buy a second new car from him. He went out of his way to make sure we were extremely happy with everything including the cars, the colors, the accessories, and the payments. We couldn't have had a better experience. 5 star rating!!!!!! Won't deal with anyone but him and Oak Ridge Nissan. EXTREMELY SATISFIED!!! Have recommended him to all my friends!!! Excellent customer service and personality!! Very customer focused!!
Ford Escape SE 2018

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.
Neat, well maintained facility with good selection of used cars that the average person would buy. Website had photo of their immaculate shop. Also had photos and short bio of the two owners. This was first time I had seen this on a car site and was impressed. Travelled 140 mi. because they had exact vehicle I was looking for. Definitely worth checking out if you see a vehicle on their site you're interested in.

This car is amazing and great. Lacks on gas mileage compared to what I am used to but handling over the winter weather is amazing. Best vehicle I have ever had for Ohio weather.
I had a great experience at Knoxville carmax location.
I went in with vehicle I wanted transferred and it was available within 5 days, even though it was quite a distance from Knoxville (Boston). Will Purvis, my sales consultant, was great to work with! I don't plan to ever buy a vehicle anywhere else again!! Thanks Will and Knoxville carmax staff!
I've only had it 2 days so far I like it a lot

Two years no problems year then....

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.
The Car meets most of my needs and drives good it’s decently roomie I get good mileage I feel safe in my car specially because I live somewhere where we get a lot of snow overall my car is just comfortable and reliable its everything that I want in a car and more ! This is my second escape and I’m hooked for life on this model !
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 had a pleasant experience with Grayson Mini Store yesterday. Our Salesman, Cameron Henson was one of the best I have ever dealt with. Very professional, knowledgeable of mini cars and very polite to us. Went the extra step to find information we wanted and was helpful in every way. We learned he had only been with Grayson two weeks. We say keep him....a real asset to your dealership. The world needs more young professionals like him! He also followed up with a call regarding a service call this morning as he said he would. A very nice young man!
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.
After doing some research online my husband and I were very interested in the Toyota RAV4. I went by Toyota of Knoxville on my lunch break and ended up test driving the RAV4 Hybrid, after getting lots of great information from John Rourk about each different model. John spent a lot of time with me explaining all the different features and answering my questions. After talking more at home we decided on the SE edition but wanted the full tech package (including birds eye camera). This was not immediately available in stock, but John spent time finding the exact car we were looking for - which ended up being located in the showroom of a sister dealership. He called us the next day and personally picked up the car for us. We were so excited to find exactly what we were looking for! We signed all the papers the next day and drove her home. All in all it had taken less than 1 week to find our dream car. We are extremely happy with our decision and I couldn't recommend Toyota of Knoxville highly enough!
Great car, and great value

I really like the car. Excellent value, 2015 used model, the car was from another long-time customer and was in great shape. Runs great and is in spotless condition.
Terrific job by all......................................;…;...............This is ridiculous to have to make a statement with 50 characters please correct this

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.
I want to take this opportunity to recognize both Thomas Hickey and Chuck Renfro for their outstanding support and professionalism during my resent visit and purchase from Ted Russell Ford. When one buys a car that cost more then his first home (40 years ago) it takes patience on the part of the sales staff to ease concerns and resolve the apprehensions/unknowns that go along with a high valued purchase. Both Thomas and Chuck were extremely knowledge about the Ford Edge and went out of their way to provide assistance/training on every option available on the car. Thomas's help on reprogramming the dash board information was also greatly appreciated. Darryl (finance department) was very helpful in assisting me in securing the best financing option available to me. It is important to note that first impressions mean a lot sometimes and the buildings, vehicles and grounds were well maintained and considering the fact that a major road expansion project was ongoing on Parkside Rd .... that deserves special recognition. I strongly recommend that if anyone is looking to purchase a new/used Ford or other quality used car, they do their research and then take time to visit Ted Russell on Parkside for I am sure they will not be disappointed. I am sure (based on the service I received) that when service is needed, the Maintenance team will also be as helpful in finding/resolving any potential problems. I had them install a 2" trailer hitch and the work completed was as good as if it came right off the assembly line. Please convey my thanks to the staff for a job WELL DONE!

Nice car , everything that I expected, it gets great gas mileage, rides good , cargo space is what we need , biggest reason I bought it was it is a 4 wheel drive ,,, yes ,,, Thx again chris ...
Staff and facilities were excellent. However I think you should maintain a file on regular customers and treat them accordingly.
So far 2017 Ford Escape is Reliable
by AB from Bloomington, IN
May 7, 2019
Found out if we turn the traction control off we get 33 mpg. The vehicle rides nice. Not as much room as our Windstar had, but still pretty nice and seats 4 comfortable and can seat 5. Got the aspirated engine as wanting nothing to do with the turbo. Have not had that long, bought used with around 18K miles, but so far pleased with the vehicle. Nothing fancy, the S model, but seems to be decent transportation.
Had an issue with engine light they got me right in had a loaner ready and made sure all my needs were addressed
Owned Many cars and this is the best.

I recently bought my first Escape as a pre-owned vehicle. I must say this is the is a fun SUV to drive. I have owned over 40 cars in my lifetime and I love this one. If I had to complain about something it's that the seats leave something to be desired in the comfort area.
We had a great shopping experience with Harper Fiat. Our sales specialist Allen was very knowledgeable and more than accommodating to our time and needs. It was clear their obligation was to help with our decision making and not to push sales.

This suv has met all our needs and is very comfortable. Easy entry and exit. Smooth ride and has great vision. Handles well in traffic.
I have purchased various vehicles from Ted Russell. I like to work with Douglas Peak. Douglas is the very definition of professionalism.
This purchase had its challenges ( not at all a reflection of this facility ). With Douglas as my salesman I really wasn't too worried. With his help and the help of the sales managers Mark and Dag, this experience was as great as all of the previous experiences. I left happy , in my new vehicle.
I will continue to purchase my vehicles from this dealership and I recommend anyone else to give them the opportunity.
I would also like to mention that the service department is also unmatched.
Thank you, All.

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.
I am following this up with a letter to Jimmy Brafford. Both my wife and I have a combined experience of 70 years, working in customer service for two large organizations. I have watched Russ and how he interacts with his service team. He is right on track for directing, training and coaching a good service effort. As for my own experience, the best way I can explain it is that I trust Russ. Mechanical problems are difficult at best. Russ has demonstrated his ability to be approachable and responsive to my service needs.
Ford Escapes are the best!!
by Mother Pearl from Vestal, NY
May 10, 2019
This is the third Ford Escape I have owned. I have stepped up in model each time. This is a Titanium. I am loving all of the ' bells and whistles' it has. It has plenty of leg room front and back; and the cargo space is fabulous. I am loving the moon roof and heated seats, too, as well as the mpg.
I cannot say enough about the excellent sales staff that helped me through what I thought was going to be a horrendous ordeal when I traded my " failing" car.
Both Justin Livingston and Taylor Sparkman made what could have been an aweful day one of the best days of my life and I drove away in a brand new car.
I have to mention the kindness and efficiency of Kevin Fox who also made my day a little less stressful. Thank you isn't enough to these people!!
Remarkably enjoyable car for the size and price

This car handles well and is quiet and comfortable. It is a great car for around town and weekend trips. The fuel economy and power are well balanced while the utility works for our needs.
