Customer Testimonials

I really appreciate Chris on making it happen on being able to get me an awesome Ford Mustang
Richard and Matt were outstanding. We are thrilled with our new Expedition and the deal we got. They were professional, honest, knowledgeable, and thoroughly enjoyable to work with. Class act!
I traded in 2 vehicle for one to eliminate 2 car paymento before getting out of the military and with negative equity on both vehicles I thought I was screwed but they pulled through with a great deal and low interest I couldn't pass up. It has been a couple months since I've got the car and absolutely no complaints about it and I've waited to do the survey just to ... see if I couldon't find anything to critique the dealership on but I've have absolutEly no complaints on the car, dealership, or salesman
So I was driving by the Vista Ca North County Ford dealership and my car failed. I put my car in neutral and ended up at the front door of the dealership. At about 7pm -ish is when I came to a stop and tried to get the car started. I turned around and found an employee asking if everything was OK and could he help. He gave me a jump and stood with me till we both came ... to the conclusion that the car was not going anywhere. I climbed out the car after assessing the situation to this same employee with a pen and an envelope for the night owl drop box, for service. I was taken care of by this employee and dealership so well that a practiced script couldn't have been executed better!!! I received a call from the service person James, the next morning , with the diagnosis. James was very professional and was creative with benefits that helped with my decisions and pocket book !! I'm coming here for all my services and purchases from here on out !! I will recommend this dealership to everyone I know and speak to !! Thank you TEAM NORTH COUNTY FORD !! GREAT JOB!! Paul Daerr
These guys are outstanding. Made the buying process simple and easy, with no pressure. Ask for Jesus, he will take care of you! Top notch.
Great service! Richard did a great job in serving my needs - offered to pick me up at home and take me to the dealership which was very helpful.
