Kenny was my salesperson and he worked quickly with me to get me into a car after I had a bad car accident. I had a great experience the first time I bought there and so it was natural to see what they had this time; and it was my dream car. I went up on a Monday and drove off on a Thursday. This is a very honest dealership with professional salespeople and managers. They stand by their vehicles and their prices are extremely competitive.
Small engine, but plenty of power

This Ford indeed gets over 40 MPG on the highway. I will be getting 516 miles on a 12.4 gallon tank for the first week of driving the vehicle on the highway.
Kay was fantastic in realizing what I liked and disliked from the cars that I test drove. Found the perfect car that I wasn’t even considering.
Super amazing car. Definitely worth the money

Car definitely meets my needs. Love everything about it. Had it for approximately 1 month. But its alot better than my last car. Everything in it works perfectly. The only problem I have with it, is that a piece of the interior door is loose.
Awesome. Very friendly. I will refer my friends to Columbia

Very friendly and helpful staff. I told Andy what i was looking for and he found the perfect car for me. They took the necessary steps to quarentee it Ford certified. The day we picked up our car, everything and everyone was ready for us. After signing papers with Andy, we went to Jake and finished ip the paperwork in a timely manor. PS, dont fall for Jakes spilt coffee on his desk. Andy made sure that i was comfortable and familiar with the car before he sent me on my way. I went to Columbia ford because my sister and nephew just bought vehicles there and reccomended them to me. They were right, Columbia Ford is the place to go when you are looking for a new or used vehicle 👍👍👍👍👍
Not for me, but is a great vehicle!

For me, this vehicle was too small. However, my son owns his 3rd one, and my friend is on her 5th one, and they love them. The car is reliable, practical. I needed a little more space than what it had. Ride was smoother than I expected. I had no problems or hesitations with it. Great little car.
I just picked up my new car at CarMax of Hartford and, I have to say, this was the best car-buying experience I have ever had. I had found a Ford Explorer that I wanted to see on their lot. I put a hold on the vehicle on their website, very early in the morning. By 9am the same morning, I was contacted by Rocco Toce, the most awesome sales person around. I have bought many vehicles through the years and he is the top of the list! We went to look at the truck and he had it clean and ready for us to test drive. We loved the truck but it just didn’t have all the options that we were looking for. I found the exact Explorer we wanted in New York and Rocco jumped right in to help us transfer the vehicle to Hartford. I have to admit, it IS a leap of faith to pay the transfer fee upfront before even seeing the vehicle in person. Rocco jumped in and took over. He spoke to the other CarMax and had them check every part of the vehicle out. I felt very comfortable after he called and told me the truck sounds good. My Explorer made it to Hartford very quickly and Rocco immediately checked it out and let us know it was perfect! I went to see it yesterday. It was beautiful and in the best shape. Rocco took us through the entire car and never rushed us through anything. He sent our Explorer to detailing while my 2009 Silverado was appraised. I received a fair price for my trade and the deal was smooth and handled professionally by the staff. I’m pretty sure I have not had a better car buying experience. Rocco and the team at Hartford CarMax could not have done more to make our experience the best. I did a ton of research about CarMax like I’m sure everyone does. I drove over an hour to work with them and I am so glad I did. We walked out of there with a great, shiny Ford Explorer and the greatest car buying experience!
It was okay

I just got done with my lease of a focus se manual. It was a zippy little car but I dont miss it at all. I never had any issues with it at all so very reliable. I just didn't find it very comfortable plus there was nothing to it. It was a 20 thousand dollar car with nothing in it. Then I just got a 17 jeep renagade with all the options for 18 thousand and it sooo much better quality. You can just the better quality when you drive. Wouldn't recommend the focus
Dave and mike did a wondetful job, I thought the buying process was excellent. Did you call I did pick up my vehicle today and I'm very pleased with the vehicle and the service thank you again David.
It's ok...not enough value for the cost

I leased the 2015 Ford Focus Hatchback, and bought it at the end of my lease to avoid mileage overages. It's too small, doesn't do great in snow, hesitates often, and doesn't really have much power. It's sporty looking which is fun, but overall the value has declined so much that I feel stuck in this car. Not great.
They were awesome is their support, and knowledge of all of their merchandise. They made me feel part of a family. I would definitely suggest you check them out!!!!!

It’s a great car I put 100,000 miles on it in my first two years. I got 40 mpg average and 47 on the highway. Ford never advertised the car maybe because it only came as a stick. Have had no problems only maintance
It was time to trade in our 2008 Ford Edge, so we went online shopping. We saw a car that caught our eye and decided to stop in and check out Thrifty, based on a friends recent experience. The car we originally wanted to see had already sold, so we strolled the lot with Mike to see what was available. We looked at a Ford Explorer then a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Very easy going, no pressure whatsoever. We fell in love with the Jeep and purchased the same day! So easy and customer friendly. Easily the best buying experience we've ever had!! Kudos to Mike & Bruce for making this an easy, wonderful purchase!!
Very nice overall vehicle, except for a few things

This car has been exactly what I needed when I needed to replace my 2002 Buick Century after it died of old age. I love pretty much everything about it except for it's Automated manual transmission. Basically what this is, a computer handles shifting but the engine is setup like a manual with two clutches: one for the Odd gears and one for the Even. What happens with it is usually from a dead stop, trying to get going is difficult. The shifting has trouble from gear 1 to 2 and even sometimes to 3 but very rarely. This is not exactly a great function as any transmission slip is not good for any car. The other complaint is the lack of storage space. Yes I know it's a small car, but it's not what I thought in terms of space. Other than those issues, it's a great car for long highway driving with 39 HWY, and even as a college commuter vehicle with 26 City. Also very easy to maintain and very cheap parts.
Nice staff and genuinely tried to get you that new to you car that you are looking for. What you see is what you get, no mixing of words or double talk just straight sales. A must stop on your car shopping list.
Strongly recommended car

I've only had this car a short time but it's everything I was looking for. Very comfortable, great gas mileage and so many great features.
I had seen the car I bought online and decided to go look at it. When I got there they were very friendly. I asked to take the car for a test ride and was happily sent on my way after a quick explanation how to start the car. When I got back Dave O’neil Was friendly and amazing when I said I wanted to buy the car. They guided me through the paper work and made my descision to go there the right one. They were professional and would recommend anyone go there to get a vehicle
I had been looking for an older model Toyota 4Runner for 6 months and was about to give up. All the vehicles I found (none of them were at this dealership) were either in need of thousands of dollars of repairs or they all had rotted frames. John and Jay were great. They had the exact vehicle I wanted and didn’t even flinch when I insisted on taking it to be inspected by my own mechanic. My mechanic only found a few minor things wrong with the truck and informed me the frame was in great shape. They fixed everything that had an issue without a blink of an eye and I couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend this place. They will definitely do right by you.
Ms. Nicole Sowa was not only courteous, but highly professionally in handling my visit to Sarat Ford. She utilized not only my 10% birthday discount, but searched for other ways to lower my service costs.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
