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.
First transit love this van

I use this for a service business. The only issue I have is that maybe they could make a more comfortable seat. I drive several hours sometimes could really use some extra comfort there. Other than that I could not be happier with this van. Handles great maneuvers great easy to drive.
We met Sean Prather at 4:45 on a 100 degree Saturday evening. After a horrible afternoon of test driving cars at 4 other dealers, we stopped at Laurel Kia on our way home. Sean stayed late to show me a car, which I loved. I had second thoughts over the weekend and I went back at 5pm tonight. He let me sit in 5 cars, stood outside with me in a hailstorm, and helped me decide what would best fit my needs. I am very happy with the entire experience and highly recommend Laurel Kia and Sean Prather. The finance professional was also super helpful. The dealership is no-frills. But they have complimentary beverages and it’s very clean and upbeat. If I wanted a manicure I would go to a nail shop. I wanted a car, and I got one today! Thanks!
From old to nearly new

I have a 1991 Ford E150 Van that I have been working out of doing construction that seems like forever,the old van has 76K miles on it,still runs and drives OK but just doesnt have the ride it use to have after many years of service..I have been looking to upgrade for a while and decided to look at the newer model Ford 250 Transit Vans, it is comparable is size and usability for what I am dioing with it..The 250 Transit is like driving a sports car compared to the old E150..Drives,rides,sounds, cools, and no leaks or whistling as you drive,,I dont miss the old van one bit..
We wentin looking and came home with our Kia Sorrento. Igore was our salesman abs he was awesome. Told him what we wanted and what price range we were in and the 2nd car he showed us we bought. No pressure, no haggling and fast easy paper work. We would defbut from Igore and Laurel Kia again.
Far Superior to Econoline Models

This cargo van drives like a car not a truck; easy handling, far superior gas mileage to it's competitors. You won't be in the shop once a quarter or more like a Sprinter! It's Ford Tough! Just wish I could have had the CD player and the GPS at the same time.
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 :)
Best for hauling/camping/parking/gas mileage

I think this the most versatile vehicle I have ever owned. I wish I got it with an extra row of seats.
Our transportation company has operated this vehicle for the last 2 months. After driving for 6 hours non stop, the driver's sitting position could do with some little improvement especially left foot resting area. Cargo area not bad. Good engine performance even with sizeable weight.
I first purchased a Ford Explorer in April,My Salesman, Curtis Shannon was very professional and courteous it was a superb experience.
I needed a new truck for my business and I once again returned to Sheehy Ford and again Curtis Shannon got the best deal for me
Excellent work truck

2016 Ford Transit 250 Cargo Van. Low roof version. Rear camera with guideline images. Clean title - no loans or liens. New seat covers (some tar stains on original cloth seat covers). New windshield. Purchased in November, 2017. Owner has closed his business and is moving north. Small dent in rear door but both rear doors and rear camera work without any issue. Recently serviced at Charlotte County Ford (oil change, inspection and tire repair). Multi-point inspection revealed no issues. Invoice from Charlotte County Ford is available for buyer’s review. Original warranty still active. 3.7 liter V6 engine. Rear wheel drive. Flex fuel. Spacious cargo bay. There is a step below the rear doors for easy access. Automatic transmission. Carfax available. Two 12 volt jacks and cable plug. I’ve seen the same vehicle listed by dealers (with more mileage) for mid-$20,000s.
What a refreshing experience compared to the crooks at some of the other places!!! Just walk in and ask for John Clampitt for a NO bait and switch, NO ridiculous tacked on fees, NO run around, NO gimmicks, NO pushing you to something you don't want, and NO pressure car buying . Everything was fair and honest from start to finish. Johns knowledge of the cars they have is truly staggering. I must say so far my interaction with everyone there has been excellent! If only other places were this good I could have saved a week of my life not having to deal with clowns and crooks... I finally found an honest organization. I've gotten a straight deal at one other dealership, but they don't sell fords...
Great Business Van
by Steve B from NORTHAMPTON

Love the styling and layout of this van. A new and better replacement van than our E 350. Updated looks and efficiency.
John was great in making my purchase a bit easier. They promised to bring car to me in VA and get moonroof deflector installed and neither happened. But, they did pay for an Uber to bring me out to them. Ended up missing work :( and stuck in rush-hour traffic but love my car!
Short time owner

Only had the van for a week but I love it. I bought it for business and it had most of the available options. What sold me was the test drive of the available Ecoboost after driving the Dodge/Ram 250. The power difference is significant and well worth it. Drives more like a car than a van. Drove a E350 for five years and I don't know what they did to tighten up the steering but very nimble/responsive to the steering wheel. Added ladder rack and trailer hitch before I even took it off the lot. Have pulled a 6X10' single axle enclosed trailer with my stuff in it and had no problem with the added weight in handling or acceleration. I would have bought a 8 cyl if it were available just because I want the additional available power but our government thinks we are to stupid to know what is good for us. Considering what is available I wouldn't buy anything but the Ecoboost engine. To soon to give it a reliability rating. Ask me in two or three years.
I was not looking forward to buying a car because it is always a tedious process. But to my surprise this experience was the complete opposite. The staff was friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. They answered all of my questions and was very helpful with the process.
This van is very comfortable to drive

I like the height of this van. I can stand in it without hunching. It suits my business. When it rains I can stay inside and select my customers order without being wet.

NIce vehicle, big improvement over the older vans
by Diesel fan from Thorp WI

Don't judge this vehicle by its looks before you drive it. This van is designed to work, handles like a car, roomy, quite and very well designed. If you have driven a older van and are expecting the same from these vehicles prepare for a shocking surprise. I personally didn't care for older vans and bought a Excursion instead. However after driving one of these vehicles I have changed my mind and will be seriously considering upgrading to a Transit in the near future. These handle better than my SUV, and the fuel mileage would be a huge improvement.
I was in the market for a new ride, and I didn't have the best credit. However, IAD auto helped me out and put me in my new Chevy SUV. I worked with Ed T a really nice guy and very knowledgeable about what was necessary to get the deal done. I was very frustrated, but the way Ed dealt with me you'd never know I had credit challenges; plus I got the Equinox I wanted. Thanks IAD

Nice van in good weather. No Winter/Snow tires available, drives terrible in snow. Got to wonder what Ford was thinking?
