Searched for months for an honest new VW Dealer. Finally, through TrueCar.com, found Paramount. Listed w/TC and found Parker Grove @ Paramount. Same day as contact, they delivered exactly for which I was looking. Unbelievable. No charge for delivery (100+ miles?), and discounted vehicle $5000. A distance transaction with (understandably) difficult logistics, paperwork, but well worth the search. This model is being disconntinued for 2018, and difficult to find. Had the vehicle 2 days, but only driven 7 miles (raining) and working. Hey, Parker, where do I mount the front license plate...Virgina requires them! Only minor problem so far with the car...I'm sure there is a resolution. Thank you, Parker. I'm a Vietnam Era veteran, and 28+ years sworn policed officer, retired (working easier work as security). I love German engineering. I pray all the reviews of this car are nearly true. I'm still driving a '99 Jetta TDI (110,000 miles) that gets locally 48-50 mpg...tire pressure needs checked and Marvel Mystery Oil needs to be used again.) Awesome performance, with tweaks needed now & then. Again, Thank You, Parker

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 .

The older Explorers had an option of 8 cylinders and tow packages. Ford needs to reevaluate the marketing needs of a midsize SUV with 8 cylinder engines and towing packages. I've owned explorers since 2006. This vehicle is perfect.

This place was awesome to work with! Submitted an inquiry on Sunday, got a call and text on Monday morning, and was at the dealership buying the truck by the evening. Andy was a great associate to work with! He made sure to call and text me and let me know that the truck I was interstates in was getting sent to auction the next day. He got me the truck I wanted, for the deal I wanted, at 30 minutes before close! He and the financial advisor both stayed 2 hours past closing time to get me in the truck before I left. I would definitely recommend!

Fantastic dealership and service!

I visited Carsplus on Good Friday this year, 2017. The staff let me drive several different cars that I was interested in and let me make my decision with no pressure whatsoever. As I was paying cash for the car, I received a better purchase price than the listed one and Mitchell and Barry could not be more helpful. The car was used and sold without a warranty as many are. However, later that week, I heard a sound around the dash. David took care of the problem for me, gave me a loner while the car was being repaired, and even took my car to the repair shop and picked back up the loaner while I was working. In this day and age, the consumer does not always feel good about purchases. I cannot say that about my experience with Carsplus. They get a superior rating from me. I would strongly recommend anyone to browse their vehicles and purchase there.

Superior Service
by Miss Linda from DealerRater.com
December 3, 2018
5 5 5 5 5 4.7 (122 reviews)
The service department is superior. Manager, Jonathan Lankford, runs an excellent service center. He treats you like family and his staff follows his example. Everyone in the service department treats you will respect and they are friendly, prompt, knowledgeable, and get you in and out as quickly as possible with your vehicle in good shape. They are the best service center I have ever done business with! They have a very nice waiting room with a tv, and you are given many choices of their great free snacks, drinks, and water. They cover your floorboard and seats before it is taken to the mechanic. When the work is done, they deliver you a clean, washed vehicle! They do not try to make a living off one person but make every effort to lower your bill with discounts and specials. While everyone does a wonderful job, I would like to mention Monica Webster's kindness and efficiency....she has a great personality, knows her job, and is a pleasure to work with. Mr. Lankford's high standards and sincere, friendly personality leave no doubt that your vehicle is in excellent hands at a reasonable price, along with a fun place to be while you wait. This young man is a breath of fresh air in the way he makes every customer feel important, along with knowing that their vehicle is in the very best hands, whatever the need. Personally, I am treated like a princess upon my arrival and until I leave. If I need to go to the restroom upstairs Jonathan escorts me. He gets a golf chair from my trunk and sets it up for me if I want to sit outside in the sun to read, checking on me periodically, and returning my chair to the trunk when they finish with my car. I will not let anyone else touch my Lincoln Town Car!

Cloninger Ford dealership has hands down, the best Mechanics I have seen. They are honest, friendly, and loyal to their customers'. I have been a customer for about a year now and will be a returning customer as long as I'm in N.C. I have never been anywhere to get my truck worked on that doesn't try to tell you a lie to get more work done or more money out of your pocket. Cloninger is the way to go, thank you Monica for all your help this past week and a big thank you to the Mechanics that have done amazing work every time i've come in. You guys are outstanding, 5 stars all around

My wife and I were shopping for a new SUV and stopped to browse at Cloninger Ford of Morganton. All the employees were very friendly and helpful. We were looking at a 2017 Escape that we both really liked. After test driving it and with no sales pressure we decided to make the purchase. I would highly recommend this dealership.

Great Service

I was loading up my 2014 Silverado to leave Ohio for a Golf trip to Santee SC and was almost done, when I tried to open the tailgate the latch jammed . It was on a Friday at about 6:00 pm called my local dealer but all the techs had left. So I called the service department at Randy Marion and told them what had happened and that I would be in Statesville around 8:00 in the Morning . I arrived at the dealership just before 8:00 they got me right in and fixed my latch which was not easy as I have a hard Tri Fold cover that the tailgate has to be open to unlatch. They had my latch repaired and had me on my way in about 35 min. They were going to replace the latch as my Truck is a Certified preowned but did not have one in stock. Can't thank them enough for great and fast service.

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.

Own a 2014 ford focus. Came in with studdering in the transmission. Ended up being a recall, but had steps to follow. Nick did an amazing job explaining everything to me. He got the vehicle in quickly and the reset and TCM was fixed quickly. He called and kept me updated every step of the way. Ended up needing a new clutch. Got the part faster then originally anticipated. Nick contacted me and got me in immedietly. Company provided me with a rental. Continued to call and update me whenever necessary. Overall amazing experience! Thank you!

Exemplary Service

We were traveling and had a catastrophic electrical and overall power failure on I-77 in the construction zone north of Charlotte. We planned to stay overnight in Statesville and took the vehicle to the dealership in the morning. The service advisor accurately and correctly diagnosed the issue and determined the part was not in stock. Immediately they located a part at another dealership, sent a driver, and had us back on the road sooner than originally estimated. They even delivered the vehicle to us at our hotel. The service didn't meet the standard, it set a new level. There are dealerships in Detroit that could take lessons on the right way to deal with customers from Randy Marion Ford.

I just wanted to mention Shawn Tate. My mother was involved in an automobile accident, less than 24 hrs of purchasing a Soul. Mr. Tate called to check on my mother, and also offered his personal vehicle to her so she could keep a doctors appointment. He made her feel at ease in a stressful situation. He went way above and beyond customer service expectations. Thank you so much for taking care of my mother!
