Question Need a New Ford Dealership

I typically buy a few work trucks a year. Probably average about 8 per year. Some years more, some years less. Some are XL and some are Lariat. Some are F150 and some are F250...a few F350-F550 over the years. I've been a loyal customer to the same Ford store for many years. I don't shop price. I don't compare prices. I call and tell them what I want and I expect to get a fair price and I expect great service. I'm familiar and friendly with the sales manager, the service manager and the owner himself. I'm loyal.

Recently, my Ford store decided to expand their parking area. Well, I'm a contractor that does earthwork, utilities and concrete. I literally build parking lots everyday. They know this. Right up my alley, right? Except I don't get a phone call. I don't get a set of plans to look over. Nothing. I got a call from someone that works there that I should call and see if I could bid it. I went through the process only to learn that the job had been awarded BEFORE I even looked at it.

I work in a tough, cut-throat industry. I'm a tough competitor myself. I'm not afraid of competition because it keeps us sharp. However, I'm VERY loyal to my suppliers and vendors. I'm honest to a fault and I expect the same in return. They were under no obligation to let me do their project, but I'm under no obligation to buy all my trucks there either. It's simply time to part ways. I hope their local-yokel contractor turns out to be a good customer for them. I ain't bitter, but I am vengeful.

So, whattaya got? Recommend me a Ford house that wouldn't mind some new business. No fancy showroom places. No Planet Fords or Megaplex AutoTowns. I'm looking for good ole boys that want to sell trucks. For service reasons it needs to be within 100miles of Houston.

I won't buy another Ford from anyone other than Ennis Ford. We've bought about 20 new Fords from them and they get all of our service business and they meet all of your requirements except the 100 miles... still throwing it out there just to make a grumpy semi-old fart even grumpier!

But seriously, I couldn't be happier with their sales team and service department. If you change your 100 mile requirement, let me know and I can put you in touch with the GM.

Not a requirement as much as a preference. I'll consider anyone that's awesome.

My vehicle buying is much like yours. I abhor the buying process that most dealers try to put you through. I had an oilfield construction company for 12 years and I bought everything from Johnston Ford in New Boston, but that's far from your 100 mile radius. Joe Johnston is a good man to buy from, but I could never trade with him. I did better selling my old vehicle myself. I just bought an F 150 from him about three weeks ago.

Tuned in... One night a few weeks ago during the truck month I clicked on the send me the lowest price on a F250 Lariat. I need a new truck.

I was actually on a business call. Next I know getting a call from the dealership. I gave them my email, not my number. Couple minutes later wife gets a call. And they keep calling. Never did get that low price that is too low to show on their site.

No help on a good Ford dealership. I can however appreciate your stance when it comes to business. Maybe the next dealer will appreciate your business a little more.

Brady Kinsel with Kinsel Ford in Three Rivers. While I don’t buy as many as you we do the same thing. Don’t shop, don’t haggle just want fair pricing and service. Brady is the man. It’s been several years since we’ve bought our round of new trucks from him. Might be time to get another round for us.

Edit: Sorry just saw your mileage requirement. We are in Houston and it hasn’t been an issue.

That's really tacky that they didn't even offer you the opportunity to bid on it. Did the bunch that got the job buy a bunch of trucks from them too? Or were they just cheap?

Little further than your 100 mile radius but I'm great friends with the co-owner of Marshall Ford, Matt Moore. He's as awesome as they come and will shoot you straight every time. Former Aggie and he's always quick to open his pocket book to give to MANY charitable foundations (FFA etc)

BJ Ford in Liberty treated me right. Bought from Friendly in Crosby in the past but they tried jacking me around this last time. I’ll be buying my next ford from BJ. Small dealership with a nice small town country feel - and super nice folks.

I'm sure it was a brother-in-law deal, but that happens. I get my share of work that way too. I'm certain they don't buy more trucks than I do. I know my competitors and I've never heard of this guy. It just rubbed me wrong. I've spent a lot of money with them in the past 15 years and nobody thought to call me when they wanted to spend some? That's just good business.

I don't buy Fords, but all of my in-laws from Louisiana to OKC, to here in north Texas buy theirs from Covert. They'll deliver it to OKC and drive the trade in back to Austin.

Do you really think FORD doesn't touch bases with people even more important than you? It was probably a corporate decision. I can guarantee if any of the other Ford dealerships mentioned here needed to be expanded there would be a ton of corporate and other factors that go into that decision. Don't punish that Dealership because of this.

This could be true if you knew what you were talking about. But you don't in this case. Yes, FORD deals with people much larger than me. This dealership doesn't....at least not in my trade. It was not a corporate decision. That's a stupid assumption. Corporate gives direction on fit and finish of building and certain shop requirements and not much else. I know this because I was very close to purchasing an existing dealership that was going to need to be rebuilt. They certainly don't dictate what contractor is chosen for a parking lot expansion that is independently owned. I've been involved in the building of a few. I laid it out exactly as it went down. I didn't embellish. I'm well aware of the facts. But thanks. BTW....do you know of a good dealership?

Curt, I for sure ain't no Randall Reed fan either! I drive lease vehicles and my leasing company delivered my last truck to them in Humble... The fleet manager was a good guy, but There's no way I'd EVER buy a vehicle there nor take one in to that service department!
You tried Anderson Ford? They're right up the road... Cleveland family and been around for years... Sure see a lot of their trucks round the area, but have NO personal experience with them.

Bought my last one from Sour Lake Ford. Doug the sales manager will take great care of you. My business partner lives in Tyler area and they drove his new truck to him and took the trade in. He didn’t even have to make the drive to Sour Lake.

Lots of gold in this thread. Only thing of Substance I can add is I bought my Duramax from covert in Bastrop and as has been mentioned they are great folks. Easily least pressure in a car purchase for me.

Default Need a New Ford Dealership

Do you know the owners of the dealership personally and are you sure they know exactly what business you are in? I donít know them at all but I know how the dealership business works ( my family has been doing it since 1971) and most of the time the sales team and the business management team donít converse that much.

That being said, loyalty to a vehicle dealership is in my opinion asinine. They are selling a product. They all sell the same product. I ply them all against each other for the lowest price because none of them offer you anything that every other one doesnít offer.

It takes 5 minutes to type up an email outlining exactly what you want. Send it to 20 different dealershipís internet sales managers and Ďcc all of them on the same email. It will be like sharks circling a bleeding seal.

All of that aside, Vernon is typically the best cheapest place to buy a Ford. Every dealership has to service them no matter where they were bought.
