Our experience became our MOST PLEASANT experience.
December 3, 2018
Shopping for a specific pre-owned vehicle can be both challenging, time consuming and often frustrating. Four months ago we decided on finding a one owner, luxury four-door, family style truck as our 2nd vehicle. We were a one-vehicle family for some time and it made sense to search for that type vehicle to both travel comfortably and safely in and carry light cargo to and from home. We Chose Ford. We choose Sheehy Ford, of Gaithersburg, MD. We decided on a 2015 Ford F150 four door Lariat that was in most ways more of a luxury vehicle than "just a truck". We visited several dealers in 2 states; test drove, and read up on Ford Lariat specifics, engine types, ride quality, and design. Every Dealer "store" visited had the year and low mileage pre-owned models we were interested in. When we compared vehicle similarities, options, mileage, and pricing, all were mostly similar, yet something was missing that caused us to revisit Sheehy Ford in Gaithersburg, Md., a second and third time. Three crucial elements at the other factory authorized dealers we visited (at least for us) seemed to be unmemorable. The three muted elements in the other stores were in the forefront at Sheehy Ford. The sales floor at Sheehy was quite busy yet quiet and the people were going about their work and helping prospects. Then there was the used car manager, Joe Evans and others that came to meet and greet us each in a no-pressure environment. And then there is Andre Hammond. Andre Hammond came highly recommended and became our Sheehy associate salesperson. Soft spoken, very helpful, enthused, and led us to F150's that were only a brief walk from the showroom. We went on two test drives with Andre. We decided ourselves to buy the Lariat. Andre did not persuade us to buy the Lariat, It was how he presented himself, and relevant knowledge that I would suppose is a virtue of a trustworthy salesman. Thank you Shelley Knight for your presentation on products I had not thought deeply about but was necessary. The Bullet liner application you recommended was a good choice and Easy Care insurance will become a great asset. It is also good to note Sheehy management has placed women in positions of accountable responsibility. When the time comes to service our F150 Lariat, there will be no choosing a source other than Sheehy Ford, Gaithersburg, MD. I have met with service department managers and have confidence in their technicians. We really don???t think our vehicle buying experience with Andre Hammond was challenging, time consuming or frustrating. It was for us, a pleasant, and brief experience that will soon be repeated as our 2016 Fushion Lease will soon expire.
