Ames Ford Lincoln Review
Exceptional!
by John George from Augusta, Kansas
November 6, 2018
5 5 5 5 5 4.5 (75 reviews)
I have been looking for a new car for about two months now and decided to look into a new Ford. A few weeks ago I was attending a wresting camp in Iowa and decided to conpare prices to those in Kansas. Ames Ford and Lincoln was one of the dealerships I looked at while I was in Iowa. I was blown away by the customer service. The business was very well organized and I received great support from the staff. One employee named Kerrigan, made my experience exceptional! He left a great impression of himself and Ames Ford and Lincoln. Although I did not buy a vehicle, Mr. Kohnen made my experience at Ames Ford and Lincoln exceptional. I would highly recommend looking into buying a car from this dealership.

Such a great experience. I had a car that had a lot of miles but upside down on my loan. Ron is such a kind salesperson. Dennis in Finance got me a great deal on a new Jeep Patriot by using dealer cash & rebates that paid off my old car so I could get a brand new one!!! They are my dealer for life.

This car looks 'classy', has lots of 'bells and whistles', lots of horsepower, very 'cushy' inside. Sadly, had to say good bye to our Jeep Sahara; she was not well. We'll miss her looks, but we'll enjoy the smooth ride, and cush of our Explorer.

Excellent selection of quality used vehicles. Priced very fairly, but low-balled big time when wanting to sell them my current vehicle to the tune of nearly 20% below KBB trade-in value.

Also, both Jeff and Austin were really great in going over everything I needed to know in regards to my new Ford Taurus before I left the dealership!

Replaced a Alcadia Denali with this Explorer Limited. Huge improvement with the Explorer. Better looking, and way more reliable. Only thing I wish is if it got better mpg than my F150 does with a V8.

Several different models to fit your needs. The Platinum has all the bells and whistles with a twin turbo EcoBoost engine which is really fun to drive. We also have a rear DVD system for the kids which is great for longer trips. So far no complaints.

So far I am really impressed with the vehicle. It has more bells and whistles than I expected. It is quiet, rides smoothly, is roomy and comfortable. I love the heated seats and being able to Sync to my phone. I've only had it a few days, but I'm sure I'll discover more features that I love.

The staff at Gookin Ford are always easy to get scheduled, efficient at getting the service done, and courteous and quick at calling if any other issue is found, or to tell us when they are done. I can't think of anything I'd change about their service, which is why I'm willing to travel 25 miless to get all of my cars serviced there (driving past one other Ford dealer).

Wilson Toyota of Ames Review
Quality service

We just purchased our second new Toyota vehicle from Wilson Toyota in Ames. We purchased a Toyota Venza in 2013. That purchase experience went smoothly, and we have been very satisfied with the car. Wilson Toyota has handled all service for our Venza, and we have been highly satisfied with their customer service. Our positive experience brought us back to Wilson Toyota for our most recent purchase of a 2018 Highlander Hybrid. We spent a considerable amount of time with our sales rep, Jacob Harmelink, exploring vehicle features of both the RAV4 and the Highlander before settling on the Highlander Hybrid. Because Wilson Toyota didn't have a vehicle on the lot that had the specific features we preferred, Jacob arranged to get our vehicle from another dealer. In the end, we got the vehicle we wanted. Finalizing the purchase went very smoothly. Thus, we've had another positive purchase experience with Wilson Toyota.

I Actually Enjoyed The Buying Experience.

My background is with higher-end retail sales, unfortunately, I loathe shopping for a new vehicle. I am not exactly a "dream customer". Fortunately, Dan Holz, was very responsive to my myriad of tech questions and applied the appropriate nudges to keep this deal going forward. I was impressed with the dealership's flexibility and an amicable purchase price was decided upon. Despite being 156 miles away, Dan at Wilson Toyota, will be my first call regarding any future purchases. The child's letter adorning his office wall was pure gold and this old sales rep even learned a few things. Thank you Dan, and Wilson for the new truck. Karl

Accommodative of customer needs
by KTJ1989 from DealerRater.com
December 3, 2018

This service center is accommodative of customer needs. While they were unable to get my car in for two weeks while my engine was not running smoothly (the last time this happened, I had to replace my engine) they we're accommodative once the service was performed. There were recommendations to change parts which were contrary to what my primary other shop had indicated, such as: replacing rear shocks and bearings and replacing breaks. Although my brakes have approx 25% left and I plan on replacing them at the 70k mile mark (currently at 66k) the dealer insinuated that I should replace them immediately. After providing a realistic timeline, they agreed that the replacement was not necessary at this time, but should be done in the next 5-10k miles. Regarding the shocks, I had a vehicle inspection at 64k miles, and there was no indication that shocks were in need of repair. At 66k miles, they were apparently completely blown. This is confusing to me, as this drastic a change should not occur over 2k miles. Further, I have not experienced diminished ride quality or "clunking" sounds typical of blown shocks.

The sport trim which is what I have has a lot of get up and go. A lot of space it's easy to transport items as well as to switch between cargo space and 3rd row seats. Red noises a minimum handles well and curves thoroughly enjoy driving the vehicle
We found additional vehicles that are close to your year range.

After over a week of dealer-hopping & driving a few different mid-sized sedans someone recommended Granger Motors. We got there after work & close to an hour before they closed. We were able to drive a few different vehicles without the pressure of a sales person in the back seat;) There was never any pressure & we felt the prices were so reasonable that there wasn't a need to haggle. It was our first time walking away without feeling terrible. Our only feedback would be to have the stats & prices on the vehicles for customers as they walked around.

The car met all our needs but one, towing. Decent and as advertised but not great with rolling hills or the mountains of Tennessee. Advertised limit is really the limit.
