"2011 Escape for me accompanied by husband. Had 2004 Toyota Matrix as tradein. I did all of the advance research on pricing, gas milage, & car specs/info for 3 car choices - Toyota Matrix, Ford Focus, & Ford Escape. Test drove all 3 & comparing the comfort, handling, value for the dollar (all close in price w/tradein), plus the small difference in the gas milage, I preferred the Escape (even with $4 gal gas). Then gathered dealer prices with two Ford dealers close to home. Lastly went to Hubler Shelbyville on the advice of a friend who got a good deal there. Justin gave me a price that was quite a bit below the others, plus the car has 4 wheel drive, which the others did not; all had same options. For the first time in buying a new car, I felt that Justin was sincerely working to get me the best deal without the old fakeout of spending 15-20 minutes "talking with the manager"! He's so pleasant, energenic & upbeat.
Financing - In advance I called local banks & did online research. We have a high credit rating, but I still figured we'd get about 4%. Charles knows his stuff! He found us 2.9% - Wow! He also was very friendly & so knowledgable.
Everyone at the dealership was very welcoming & friendly. Even as they passed by us, they smiled & greeted us - nice touch. I hate buying a car, but this was actually a positive experience.
Oh....I love my new Ford Escape & the dash computer tells me I am getting 24-25 mpg, not the 20 mpg on the window sticker." - link to review
