I had test driven a Ford C-Max Energi in 2014 and completely fell in love. I knew that was the next car for me. But unfortunately do to timing and circumstances I was not able to buy one. Still, I knew this would be my next car. Whenever I would have a bad day, I would go on Ford’s website and build the car I wanted with all the options and colors choices I wanted. I even saved one of them I had built in a pdf file to reference when I didn’t have internet connection.
This year when Ford announced they would no longer be producing the C-Max in the US I knew it was time for me get my dream car. I went to a local dealership and got the run around. They said since the car isn’t being produced, they can’t get the car with all the options I wanted. They tried to get me to compromise. I felt uncomfortable and pressured into something I didn’t want to do. I left in tears thinking I would never own the Ford C-Max of my dreams.
Then my boyfriend called and said he found a nearly new one in New Hampshire in the exact color with all the options I wanted. He started making the calls on my behalf. Craig the sales representative was always available and even though the transaction was made across states, made me feel like I was sitting right in front of him. The entire Portsmouth team did their best to answer all my questions. Signing the paperwork was seamless and easy. They even set up delivery from NH to TX. When my car arrived before I thought it would, I was overjoyed and estatic.
Thank you for everything you did to make my dream a reality. You really are the best. I’m a Portsmouth customer for life.
I love Ford cars. Last focus was a 2006 217000

Car is amazing and lots of standard features. Really nicer than my 2006 focus. Drives like a dream and is really quiet. White gold is amazing
Went in to see a truck they had advertised but discovered it wasn’t what I wanted. They found the exact vehicle I wanted and had it ready for me the next morning. Outstanding!
First and Great Car

First car ever owned. Specifically I have the Ford Focus 2018 1.0 Ecoboost. It’s automatic transmission and have great features for new drivers and has been really reliable. I plan on putting more miles on it and updating this but so far it’s been amazing. Only issue I have is I wish the lower end models still had Sync 3 as this car doesn’t support Apple CarPlay.
This was an excellent experience. Bob Knowlton was knowledgeable and patient with me through the process of purchasing a new vehicle. I traded in my 2008 Toyota 4 Runner and was pleasantly surprised how much they gave me as a trade in towards the purchase of a 2017 Toyota 4 Runner. Very professional folks, outstanding service department, and excellent inventory. I rate this as one of the best car buying experiences I have ever had. I highly recommend Rochester Toyota!

Dealership sucked, my car left thenlot with an unbalanced rim. However without cars.com i would not have found a 5sp focus there was only one within 500 miles of my home.
David B was great to work with. Spent quality time showing me the all the awesome features the car came with. There was no pressure in making my decision. They are lucky to have such a caring salesperson like David

I like the looks of this car, it has everything I need for the car. Also this car has good gas mileage and good price.
The buying process was very smooth. Sales department is approachable. The service Manager could use more training this would lower the amount of drama when dealing with problems. The over all manager was awesome.
Great car, great price

This car is great of fuel. Had the ability to get going when we need it too. No regrets in buying this car. Love the Focus.
It helped that I work with the brother of one of the sales team (Mark Weatherby) so I dealt with him most of the time. When I got there the car I had looked at on-line was all ready for me to test drive. When I decided to purchase the car the process was very easy. The longest time I had to wait was about 45 minutes while the credit check was performed. Once that was complete it was straight-forward for the final paperwork and I was able to drive the car off the lot. Total time from arrival to leaving was 2.5 hours. BUT, I knew what I wanted and didn't have to search and test drive multiple cars. I have already recommended Portsmouth Used Car Center to a friend of mine who lives in New Hampshire.
Love this car

I like smaller cars, but I'm 5'10" with really long legs. This car is very comfortable.
It gets better gas mileage than the estimate on the sticker.
I got the hatchback, it's great for hauling large items.
While it's not the peppiest car in the world it gets the job done. Great on corners. Drivers view is not impeded like I found in many cars I tested.
If you want to have long legged people in the back seat I'd look elsewhere.
Love my 2015 Ford Explorer with that being said. I am less then happy with the process after the purchase. The Explorer I bought had just came to the lot and had not been serviced by them to make sure that the car needed anything done to it before it could be sold. They did put four new tires and brakes on it. We also discuss that the car had spots in the paint that before I brought it would need to be fixed. Door and hood both had a big spot that had no paint and the back fender had a few every deep scratches . Salesman took all this info down and talked to someone and came back to us and said that they would fix all places we had pointed out. Plus we also wanted to have the car rust proof before taking it home. We paid for rustproofing. Salesman said the car would be ready for pickup on Wednesday but he call to move that date to Friday. Which was fine with us. Upon picking car up Friday the first thing I notice was that the scratches on back fender were not fixed and told Bob the salesman that I was not happy that they did not fix them. After going back to his head guy he said that if I would bring it back on Tuesday they would fix the scratches. My husband came with me to drop car off to have scratches fixed and also told salesman he was not happy with rustproofing job that wheel wells did not look like they applied rustproofing to and he wanted them to check on that while car was there. Call the next day to see if car was done and what does the salesman tell me that they never did the rustproofing. Thank god my husband knows enough to have looked at the wheel wells and notice that they had not been done. Salesman was great but so far service department needs work. How do you take my money for rustproofing and never do it? What else do they charge for and never do? Rustproofing is being done tomorrow and scratches were fixed today. All of this should of been done before I drove out of the lot. My salesman was excellent and I feel that he could not have done a better job for us . He went to bat for us fixing the scratches and following up with the rustproofing .
Great buying experience! The car was everything I wanted and the process went very smoothly. I came from out of state and it was not an issue at all. I would highly recommend this dealership
