A Wonderful Testimonial

The testimonial below is just an extract from a great letter I received from Ms Peverall

I walked into Buckingham Ford as a single foreign looking woman, previously I have visited other car dealers and was used to being ignored or treated as a dreamer rather than a potential buyer. But at Buckingham Ford I was treated in a professional and unbiased manner, everything was explained and explained again, they were happy to show me many examples, and after about two hours I had been turned into a Fiesta expert and had found my car.

This was my first experience of Buckingham Ford over two years ago, I have just had my car written off and had no hesitation I found myself walking back to Buckingham Ford as it felt like going back to my roots!

I was recognised straight away and no trouble was spared to answer my questions, regarding another Fiesta. This time I decided to stop by the VW garage I pass on my way to work, just to feel I was making an informed decision before buying my second Fiesta, as the salesman walked towards me I was being judged, he decided I was a dreamer and not a buyer and gave me some brochures to take away. Today needless to say I am driving a Fiesta.

Thanks to a great sales person James, and the homely friendly feeling of Buckingham Ford in General.

Thank you Ford for selling a great car from a great dealership.

Below is an extract from an email i recieved yesterday morning from a customer, who called when there car let them down.
Branch : Buckingham
Feedback : I'd like to thank Dave Balcombe and Paul Mayhew for providing exceptional service.
My car failed a month outside of warranty. The failure was a repeat (arguably!) of a failure which had occured repeatedly during warranty. Paul and Dave took ownership of the problem, collected the car from MK, liased with Ford Customer Services on my behalf, secured part payment from Ford and accepted responsibility for the balance of costs. As a result I will certainly be using Buckingham Ford for future motoring requirements, incluing the service of my wifes Vauxhall.
Truly exceptional service.
Colin Graham.
