Great experience shopping for a Ford Explorer. Loved the end of year incentives. Sonny Bentacourt is an excellent salesman and the Sheehy team members. Everyone was very professional. This was my third Ford vehicle purchase.
Best bang for my buck

The car does very well on gas as a daily driver, but if you want to have more fun sport mode really allows the car to handle and accelerate very well. The car is also very roomy and comfortable. I only regret buying one earlier
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.
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
Came into the Easterns in Alexandria looking for a SUV. Took a look at a few and finally we found the perfect one for us. All the options we could possibly ask for. I did not know they had 2018 vehicles! We worked out finance options and got a rate we were comfortable with. Definitely recommending people to go see Phillip at this location. Very nice salesman.

I arrived very early for an 9:30 AM appointment and Mo Badi was there and ready for me. Passport had the auto in front lot for me to view, and Mo answered all of my questions. This loaner vehicle was never titled so it was a actually a new/used Mini Cooper with 8K miles and 2-years left on the warranty. They had the window sticker ready for me to review, and I asked for it specifically. No tricks and no illusions. We just haggled for a few minutes(you have to barter) and arrived at a deal we both felt good signing. Great experience, great people, and great coffee. It was a great early Christmas present to my wife.
Nice car for a single "old" lady, which I am.

This car handles well on the road and I get excellent mileage. Travel quite a bit and take lady passengers with me all of the time. They are comfortable and feel safe.
Mr. Kwami was a very helpful person because he tried to satisfy my needs by making sure I got the right F-150. He was patient with me and allowed me to take my time when deciding if I had picked out the right car. Furthermore, Mr. Kwami is a friendly person who is always there to help out others by giving them the best services.

There were few complications along the was but i was able to get my service van home the same day with Kwami's help. I walked in and left with a new van with fair price that day.
Newest Car I've ever owned
by MommaBear from Fort Wayne, IN
January 8, 2019
This car meets all my standards & beats my expectations. I've never owned a car with as many bells & whistles as my 2016 Ford Focus. I have a family of 5 and I thought at first it might be to small bc our family is tall & big boned height ranges from 5'11" to 4' tall. We're all very comfortable together in the car. It has so many bells & whistles I'm still figuring everything out the car has to offer lol. It is a very reliable car, great on miles, great on gas I filled up for $17 I was so excited about that. I'm very happy with the car and everything it has to offer.
We were looking for one of the 2 last 2018 Ford RS in Maryland and this was the place! Kwami was very friendly and professional. I got some hot chocolate from their lounge to enjoy during our finance process. They played no games, gave us a great price for our trade in and we were on our way. We needed a specialty bracket ordered for our car and Kwami went out of his way to ensure we were not inconvenienced. I would 100% recommend him as a salesman.
Best car so far!

Lousy Transmission & Sound System
by Hambone from Chicago, IL
January 10, 2019
Have had this vehicle into the dealership multiple times with one clutch replacement. Still have issues due to the lousy transmission design. Now experiencing a loud crackling noise from the sound system where it is now unusable.
Just bought used Toyota Camry from Cowles Nissan. The salesman name Rusty was very honest professional answering every question we had just the best salesman I had ever encountered. He has many years of experience. He didn’t pressure us to buy the car. He was very patient with us and very knowledgeable of the cars and everything we were asking. If you need to buy a car I recommend going to Rusty. Thanks for everything Resty.
First and Great Car
by Venoxium from Morrow,GA
January 12, 2019
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.
I have never felt more comfortable with a service department and dealer. At the beginning of November my 10 year old/200k mile Honda started have major issues. I was able to get the car in right away and get a rental so I was not stranded. The communication from Fitz to me was amazing. I felt extremely knowledgeable of what the problem was and what it was going to take to fix my Fit. After a couple of days myself and my husband decided we were just going to get him a new car. I had my eye on a used car however the dealer was able to do some digging and recommend a far better car within my budget. The buying process was so incredibly easy. We were in and out in an hour (which was good because I had my kid with me.) My husband and myself love our new car and could not be any more thankful for the technicians and dealer that worked with us.
Great car that fit my needs.

My Focus has proven to be a very reliable and comfortable car. Unfortunately, Ford messed up the transmissions in some 2014 cars and this was one of them...Al Packer Ford took care of the problem and everything seems good so far...it's been over a year and 40,000 miles.
Overall I have been very happy with my 2014 Focus...total miles is now 140,000+ and there's many more to come!
A few years ago we purchased a new vehicle from Cowles Parkway; but the vehicle (although not considered a 'lemon') experienced rain leakage (which they repaired) and eventually a cylinder malfunction that required installation of a refurbished engine.
What gives? Brand new vehicles shouldn't have problems.
Although each of these defects took a long time to repair, thankfully Cowles repaired everything. However, during each lengthy repair, we rarely heard from the Service Team so were not kept up to date.
We thought it's their responsibility (their responsibility!) to contact the Customer to let them know what's going on, not vice versa. We had to call a lot and felt very lucky if we were able to talk to someone and find out details.
Cowles Service and maintenance is great, but overall Customer Service and making contact with the Customer is lacking. We realize they're balancing many customers, but a simple phone call letting the Customer know how things are would be very helpful. Why do we need to call them to find out details?
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.
I worked with Andreas Tsirikos and Layla Pouya during my recent visit to Lexus of Silver Spring. As a returning customer my expectations were once again exceeded by the Lexus professionals at this dealership. This is a first class operation and one that I would highly recommend to anyone in the market for a Lexus.
Most well priced car I ever owned.
by LoganEllis from Pittsburgh

Great car for a first car. It was very reliable and i never had a large repair on it. Would recommend to anyone for inner city commuting.
My truck was repaired on time as promised, and the work was done right. My service advisor Joshua was great. He let me know what the problem was, how much the recommended repairs would cost, and when it would be completed.
Small engine, but plenty of power
by Micah from Wellington

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.
I had a wonderful experience at Academy Ford. The saleslady, Ashley, truly listened to me when I told her what I wanted and she guided me to the right car. She had a lot of patience ! Because of Ashley I ended up with the car I truly love :)
Most Reliable and Value for Money car
by Harish from Danbury, CT
January 6, 2019
The car met all my needs like backup camera, Stylish feature like Sunroof/Moonroof, Gas Saver more miles per gallon. Bluetooth, Rear defrost, Power windows are added advantages.
Painless process. Mr. Hunt was the salesman and was well prepared. After the purchase, Mr, Hunt actually delivered the vehicle to my residence. I would purchase another vehicle from them, and recommend Academy to my associates.
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.
Is there a reason that people can???t buy volkswagen with cash money but have to finance? At 6% interest , hopefully they didn???t lie to me about paying off early without penalty, I really don???t want to pay over 3000 dollars for finance charges. They emailed me a survey but no follow up, oh well ....we will find out in a couples weeks after BB and T bank contact me .
Manual 5 speed is good Auto trans Bad
by WETCAT from Aurora, OREGON
December 29, 2018
I have a 5 speed manual and a 6 speed automatic. The manual trans is better but needs a 6th gear. Automatic nothing but problems. Both are comfortable and handle great. Get the manual if you can find one and can drive it.
