From our first phone call to purchasing and driving our car off the lot, our experience with customer service was excellent! Thank you for an easy decision and process.
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
This is the 2nd car I've purchased from Russ. He makes the car buying experience as quick and easy as possible. Nick in finance did a great job finding a lender that offered a lower rate than my previous lender! Will definitely work with these guys again.
Love this vehicle.

Always loved Ford Explorers. And once again this one has not let me down. I would buy this again too because ford puts out a great reliable product.
Frankly... we don???t like shopping for new cars because of pushy sales and cost negotiations. This time was much different!! We greatly appreciated Matt not pressuring and overwhelming us with sales tactics to make a sale. No price haggling as we believe they gave us bottom-line cost based on our research prior to shopping. We love our new Mazda CX-9 and will suggest that friends visit Matt Tillapaugh when car shopping!! Thanks, Matt

this care is an excellent choice for a busy family. very roomy, with third row seat if you need it. while practical, it is also well appointed with nice options such as heated rear seats and steering wheel. perfect compromise of practicality and luxury.
I hate car shopping. This was the year I had to take the plunge. I found the perfect car and working with Matt at O'Daniel Automart made the process painless. A Fort Wayne's round- about forced a second opportunity. Again Matt helped me find a lovely replacement quickly but when I realized the car was just not me he came through third time and I am very happy with my car and my experiences with Matt and O'Daniel Auto Mart. I would call on them again but hope it will be a while down the road.
Everything I was looking for in an SUV
by Christi from Phillipsburg, NJ

I raise service dogs and require enough room for a large crate. Many other SUV's are too rounded in the rear to fit a crate and carry four passengers. The Explorer fits all of this very nicely. Great SUV all around.
Wasn't looking forward to car shopping on my budget, but the team at O'Daniel helped me find exactly what I needed! Everything was explained very well. They were patient with my questions and I never felt pressured into buying, which seems rare for most car places. Overall great experience!
Loving this vehicle
by Leann from High Springs, FL

Love the room this vehicle allows there is plenty of storage for my work product, and still has room for passengers. Exactly what I was looking for. The car is comfortable with a very nice ride.
We have all heard, and told, the car dealer jokes. What an amazing experience. Started off with a fair price compared to other similar cars. I called and talked to a salesman and received detailed information. I did some “review” checking but got the name wrong. The wrong name produced terrible reviews, so I decided to call and get back and get “the other side” of the story. I talked to the owner and quickly discovered that i had reviews on the wrong dealer. I bought the car. Pain and hassle free. I live 200 miles away. They provided very detailed and accurate condition of the car. They even went the extra mile and delivered the car for a reasonable charge. I will buy another car from Eli and his team. His mom delivery ed the car with a big smile.
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.

My wife and I recently needed to purchase a new minivan for our family. Honestly, we weren???t looking forward to it - we were overwhelmed and a bit stressed... and the timing for our family budget was rough. We had heard great things about the New Haven O???Daniel Ford, so we decided to at least try to talk to someone. My sister recommended Mike Pocci, and she was 100% accurate. Mike was genuine, kind, and very knowledgeable. He did not try to get us in a more expensive car. He stayed in our budget. He kept in contact with us through text and calls the next free days before we officially signed. We also worked with Ryan Keebler and Mike Everton, and we couldn???t have been more impressed. Everyone was upfront and honest. They all communicated with us throughout the process. This team made this potentially stressful situation easy and even enjoyable! We will 100% return to Mike, Ryan, & Mike when we need a vehicle again, and we will refer them to ANYONE! Thanks, O???Daniel Ford! PS. And they have a GREAT selection ??? we LOVE our new minivan!!!
Fixed Or Repaired Daily

Love the look, size, and performance. Hate Ford reliability and quality control. Here are a few of the problems we have had: Transmission went out at 5k miles, PTU (transfer case) literally blew up st 22k, radiator fans relaced at 15k, 2 set of xxx Hankook tires thst Ford insisted there was nothing wrong with them, then issued a TSB admitting there were problems with them, headlights developed stress crack, A/C vent broke st 20k, nattery went out in 2 years, sest upholstery clips constantly come undone, and a carbon monoxide recall.
Ryan was very friendly and helpful. He listened to and accommodated our needs. He took the time to find the best vehicle for our family. He made sure we had the best price and value for our money. We were very impressed with how throughly he knew the inventory. We would definitely recommend to our friends and family!
We Love our new car!

We love our car so far. Great room for me, my wife and kids. Plenty of room to hold all of our sports stuff as well. Great handling and the gas mileage is real good for the size vehicle.
Wow! What a great experience!!! We worked with Mike Pocci, Ryan Keebler, & business manager Mike Everson... and they were a fantastic team! They were respectful and did not pressure us in any way. They helped answer all of our questions (even when I still did not understand remote keyless start after the 2nd explanation, lol!). They were knowledgeable, shopped around to get us the best rate, and were extremely genuine. We will definitely return to buy vehicles with this stellar team!
It keeps having issues!!!!
by Chris C from Battle Ground WA
January 3, 2019
I'm just going to list the issues. E-Brake cut wiring harness, garbage tires only lasted 17k miles, massaging seats malfunction, rear lift door works when it wants, the wind shield dressing left and right side cracked and they replaced it. Today the driver side window dressing flew off on the highway at 65 mph. Back fires when I punch it, transmission slips while going up hill. They did some recall repair while getting my oil changed and now my airbag light goes on and off. This was supposed to be a great SUV and it's completely garbage. This is the 2017 Limited 3.5 Twin Turbo model LEMON.
Jacob Ferguson was very helpful answering all our questions about the technology features and helped us through them. Polite and friendly staff including sales manager Jeff Franke ,financial personnel Omar Jimenez, general manager Kasey Shirey and our salesman Jacob.

Very comfortable, good performance, nice amenities. Having had the previous version of Sync, the Sync 3 on this model is MILES ahead in user-friendliness and options. The vehicle is very quiet on the highway and excellent on road trips. Very happy with the purchase!
I bought a 2016 Ford F-150 from Jim Schmitz back in early July. I recently had the brakes replaced with new rotors and had to work done by my mechanic in the town that I live in. I contacted Jim Schmidt about this problem and they have taken care of over half of the bill or paying for the parts and they realized it was a mistake on their part work should have been done originally and they made it right with me I am writing this review into cancel out the other two because they came forward and made it right with the customer( myself).

We love the comfort and all the bells and whistles
My husband likes the twin turbo for speed
I love the heated seats and park assist
Everything went well with the purchase of my 2017 Expedition EL. We took delivery the day after our visit because they were to have fixed the back-up camera. The back-up camera was faulty with the image being distorted and was identified during test drive with agreement to have it fixed. Upon delivery, on the same day, the camera again failed and has continued to not be functional (this is day 2). I'm not to worried because they said they would make sure it was fixed so I will write a follow up to this to let you know how it turns out.
That said I feel based on my initial experience they will be true to their word. Look for a review once it does or doesn't get repaired. I do want to say I dealt with AJ (sales) and he was great to work with, always following up and keeping me up to date over a lengthy period. At this time I would recommend him as a great representative of the dealership being knowledgeable and easy to work with.
Ford Expedition to Ford Explorer
by Sally Skellington from Fort Riley Kansas
January 9, 2019
The ride is smooth and quiet. Easy to work with the technology. Extremely comfortable. I own a 99 Expedition, 08 F150, and now a 13 Explorer. Everyone I own has been good to me. Extremely reliable. And great for everything I do.
I would recommend anyone looking for a vehicle to see Jim Schmidt Ford. These are good people, they are honest and there is no pressure. They are not the type of sales people or dealership you may be used to. Honesty and decency are on the top of the list for their employees and this dealership. If you are in the market I urge you to make a visit.
Very beautiful and room SUV.
by Daveww from Woodbridge, Va

The Ford Explorer Platinum has a very beautiful exterior that has the look of a true SUV not a roller skate like some of the SUVS out there.
I bought a 2016 F-150 from Jim Schmidt Ford this week. I had looked at a lot of trucks online, visited several dealers and attempted to buy at one other dealer. Terry and the whole team at Jim Schmidt Ford made the process hassle free and easy going. There wasn’t a high pressure “typical” process that I’ve experienced at other dealerships. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend Terry to others.
This is the 4th new Ford I have purchased.

Excellent in all aspects. Rides great, has every feature I can think of. It is a beautiful SUV and I am so proud to drive it.
Excellent dealership with great customer service, low prices, and a really large inventory with the best selection of used vehicles we've seen. Really appreciated our sales rep AJ! He absolutely earned our business, sending pictures prior to our arrival, very knowledgeable about the vehicle, and easy to work with. Most of all, we appreciated AJ staying late for us to complete the sale! Their family-friendly kids play area was also very much appreciated! He even texted us to make sure we made it home okay after a pretty long trip back home. Would definitely recommend Jim Schmidt Ford to anyone.
One of the most elegant vehicles I've ever owned
by KB from Warrensburg MO

Very eye appealing. Good mileage. The XLT 202A package has almost the same equipment as a limited model. My vehicle has 50,ooo miles on it and it drives like new.
Rick was a perfect salesman. Not too pushy, very informative and friendly. I would definitely refer him. The last time we bought a car from another dealership it took forever. This purchase was very fast!

The Explorer is great car with enough room for my family. The features in the car are awesome. Very comfortable ride. Would highly recommend the Ford Explorer.
What a great bunch of people to work with. Chase is awesome at getting you the right car at the right price

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
Just had to take time to rave about the service we have had at Shepherds. We have had routine service, warranty work and now estimates and body work done to our 2014 Chevy truck. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Made us feel like a customer instead of a problem. And their facilities while you are waiting are awesome. So thankful for such a great dealership so close to home.
First time owning one so far it’s awesome
by Harleygirl65 from Canonsburg, pa

Roomiest vehicle I have ever owned. Very comfortable and drives great. All the whistles and bells you could ever want. Vehicle looks brand new and it is a 2016
Shepherd's is not only a great place to buy a vehicle. They also have an outstanding service department. There is definitely something valuable to buying from a locally family owned business. It's right here in our community and their generosity is impeccable!
Comfortable & fun to drive
by Mustgofaster from Arlington, TX

So far we really like it. Purchased it as our primary family hauler. It is considerably more roomy & comfortable than the competition, particularly the 2nd and 3rd rows.
