Everyone at Bob Brown was responsive and accommodating,from the sales dept, finance dept, to the detailing. They listened to what I was saying or asking and responded quickly. Ninety percent of this deal was accomplished via e-mail, within 48 hours. It was all, the best new vehicle buying experience I've ever had.

I recommend Explorer those looking for comfort and spacious car interior. Everything is well designed and looks luxurious all over. I purchased this two months ago and might be a little soon to review its performance but so far I am happy with what I got. I just don't recommend the dealership where I bought from : " Ford of Orange, CA" stay away from them.

Honda of Ames Review
Best Honda service dept/most thoughtful employees
by Jean from Grimes, IA
November 6, 2018
5 5 5 5 5 4.7 (782 reviews)
Even though I was just in for an oil change I was simply curious to see the changes in the 2018 CRV's (mine is a 2015 and I love it). The sales person, Steve, took time to show me a new CRV and thoroughly answered my many questions (and I have many detailed questions!). If the opportunity arises that I need or want a new car I will certainly ask for this salesman. He wasn't pushy and didn't act like I was 'wasting' his time which I really appreciate. Mel and Josh are great in the service department. Even though I am a senior I don't feel 'invisible' when I come in for service (unlike MANY other businesses!) All the guys in the service dept. have been right there when you drive in whether to change wiper blades or to answer a question. The 'overall inspection' this time showed I will need new tires next spring or summer. Thanks to Josh mentioning it, this won't be a 'surprise' next year. Two thumbs up to the whole dealership! Sadly I didn't buy my current car from this dealership, but I will NOT go back to the original place due to the difference in atmosphere/respect/quality of the personnel at Honda of Ames.

I'm a car guy and it's important how the vehicle looks......and I really like this vehicle. It'll take me awhile to get used to all the new electronics. Once I learn everything, I think this will be my favorite vehicle I've ever owned.

I went to George White Chevy in July 2017 to get some repairs on my 2003 Duramax and ended up buying a new 2017 Duramax. I was so impressed with Mark Bathie and George White Chevy from my first experience I came back in March 2018 and bought another Durmax From Mark . The whole experience is a good one there all around . If you need a fair place to go for repairs or to buy a vehicle go to George White Chevrolet and See Mark Bathie for your salesman , they are Top Shelf ! 5/5 Stars

Have had it a couple of months and on the highway at 75mph with strong wind the windshield molding flew off !! This made me look online at the part and it shows more than 34 complaints of this happening.why in the world has this not been fixed! My car sounds like a window is down on the highway and rattling the dash ! Super sad about this . 40,000 miles on it .

Ames Ford Lincoln Review
Exceptional!
by John George from Augusta, Kansas
November 6, 2018
5 5 5 5 5 4.5 (77 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.

This car does everything we need it to do and the AP for remote starting and vehicle health report is incredible.. the only fault we found in this entire car is the built in garage door opener needs major improvement we had to have it replaced the first week we owned the car and even after replacement it still is very intermittent and you must literally be in the drive way if it works at all. But outside of the garage door opener this car is incredible.

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.
