In the early stages of car shopping for a family-friendly SUV, we stopped by City Auto in Murfreesboro, TN while out there running errands. We were not there anticipating to purchase a vehicle that day. However, things changed.
Steven Ray, the salesman, was the first to greet us. He was not pushy, annoying, or anything like your stereotypical salesman would be in your head. He asked questions and let us talk more than he talked. He was very personable and made our experience outstanding. He provided a thorough answer to ever y question we had. If he didn't know, he made a quick phone call to get the answer we needed. He insisted a test drive in a few different models, just to get an idea of what we were looking for - even though we made it clear we weren't looking to purchase that day. (... I guess that's how they get you)
He walked us through what to expect in the buying process. Gave us little hints to get better pricing and APR.
After the sale, he called us numerous times to ensure that we were happy. A few days after the sale, a few weeks later, then a month or two down the road.
Highly recommend City Auto and especially Steven Ray.
Replaced my minivan

I am the current owner of a 2015 Ford Explorer XLT. The car has everything I need! Mine has a few really nice features to have like 20? wheels, Leather, Navigation, 2nd Row Bucket Seats and a power lift gate. I have 3 kids so this car needed to be able to hold up. So far, we have driven it over 100,000 miles and it has held up great! We have had no reliability issues at all with this car! I do think that Ford charges a bit too much for these cars though. We built one online and with the current features that we have for a 2019 Ford Explorer is around $46,000 to $48,000. This is a lot considering we bought our 2015 Explorer for only $42,000.
Drove four hours to reach this dealership which was out of state for us. Pricing of the vehicle and trade in allowance very fair, worth the drive. Salesperson and sales managers very polite and accommodating with very easy buying process. Our only complaint is the not so optimal communication between the sales team, finance team and repair shop. All was well in the end but it could have been a perfect transaction, rather than a lot of back and forth. Overall, we would shop there again but beware of potential miscommunications between their staff.
Love the color and it drives so well! Smooth ride!

It has plenty of room. Third row seating. Smooth ride with Flex fuel. I love this SUV! Great mileage with low fuel costs. Thank you
I had not been to this dealership for almost 2 years due to a bad experience...Justin my service advisor was outstanding and handled a recall service to perfection. He was professional, courteous and knowledgeable...he also took time to LISTEN. Thanks Justin because of you wwe will now give Ford and this dealership another chance in the future. Yes we have bought 3 vehicles in just under 3 years from this dealership so it's safe to say we will be calling again soon. Thx Justin they need more like you!! Franklin Ford Lincoln
What a Awexome Deal i Got

I am 100% satisfied with my purchase also my salesman has 110% helped me with any issues since my purchase I would totally recommend any one to this sales place. I have already gave my salesman business card to a couple of my friends
Jordan was amazing. He found us walking the parking lot after another salesman left us. Let me tell you—great salesman! Wasn’t planning on buying a car until March but walked out that day in a great Explorer. I even did some research and found a better deal at the Columbia location but decided this guy worked so hard for my business that he deserved the sale. Hands down a patient, will do what he can for you guy! Had a great experience due to him! I even had a couple of items post purchase that he and team got in and fixed ASAP! Great experience and happy with the purchase!
We'll never buy a Ford again.

$50,000 custom vehicle. Check engine lights turn on the the DAY it turns 60k miles, conveniently also the day the factory warranty is up. Beautiful vehicle inside and out but loud as xxxx to drive. Remote start works when it wants to. We traded off our Chevy Traverse with 280k miles on this pile of xxxx. Guaranteed that vehicle is still on the road. Never buy another Ford product EVER.
I both bought and sold a car here recently. My sales associate CARLTON BOWEN was fantastic.
SOLD: They gave me a very fair price on a 2003 Honda CRV with roughly 180K miles. The process was quick and painless. You do not have to buy a car from them to sell a car to them. I had done my homework before and knew what it was worth and I was offered a price higher than Kelly Blue Book.
BUY: Buying a used car was more complicated. It took test driving many and lots of time on their website before I found one that met the very specific details I was looking for. I decided on CarMax because I did have a very specific car in mind that I had not been able to find private seller in the two plus months I'd been looking. Also, my sales associate CARLTON BOWEN was fantastic.He spent roughly a month helping me look at cars making calls to other dealerships and coordinating multiple test drives etc. I know having him as a salesperson made a huge difference. I had looked at other dealerships and was treated only like a wallet from the moment I entered. He worked hard to help me find what I needed in a car and was pleasant and respectful the entire time. Not at all the experience I had at other dealerships. With all of the hidden fees etc other places have, carmax was not more expensive. I was glad not to give my money to sketchy people at another place.
the improved ford

this car has grown on me over the years, and the handling has improved greatly, and now some way, I will own one for my family and myself!
I had a slight problem with the side steps for this truck but once it was brought to the attention of my salesman, Darren, it was dealt with and resolved promptly. I am very happy with my experience with Stan McNabb Chevrolet and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a new or used car or truck. Ask for Darren. He will treat you right.
Nice Solid vehicle front seats are uncomfortable
by Coon dog from Minnesota
December 8, 2018
I purchased my 4X4 XLT with 45.000 miles on it .Its very nice quiet SUV pulls my boat well. But the front seat cushion is uneven so the back of my leg sits on a uneavan seem. And I am averag build .The brake pedal bracket is close to the gas pedal so when braking my foot is on the Brake pedal and bracket at the same time. Changing of the heat or AC can be like texting and driving I wish the controls were simpler. Gas mileage is a respectable 20 miles per gallon average even in Minnesota winter this vehicle does not have a lot of storage in the armrest or dash
We drive up and this young man came out and met us. John Wagner was a very personable man and we liked him from the beginning. We told him we would come back on Monday when we had more time to drive because we had several we wanted to drive. John was so patient with us and let us drive several vehicles so we could make up our mind. He also showed us several vehicles that we liked. The dealership was awesome. I loved the fish tank. Once inside we were treated as if we were the only ones there by all. They all went above and beyond to help us make our purchase. I will certainly recommend Rocky Williams dealership. They are a Christian orginazition and it shows. Thank you John Wagner and all that helped.

This vehicle meets all my needs and is a solid vehicle. I always liked the interior and exterior styling. The vehicle is very smooth and the amenities in my particular model is great!
Really nice people, no pressure. Was not pounced on as soon as we pulled in. Our salesman Jeffery, who has been there for 22 years, was great to work with. It was by far the best car buying experience that we had ever had. they have called us twice in 4 days just to make sure we were happy and everything is great.
Best Family Car on the market

I needed a new car for a family car but still wanted to maintain the performance and luxury of a sportier vehicle. The Ford Explorer is the perfect balance of performance and practicality.
