Hey everyone just signed up last night. Thanks for the hospitality over at the other thread. Just had a quick question.

I live in Brampton and I've googled a few Ford dealerships that are close in proximity. Im getting the one in Georgetown (hwy#7), Planet Ford on Bovaird and 10, and finally Colony Ford on Queen and 410. I have only been to one so far (Georgetown) and from a sales perspective it was pretty positive. I plan on visiting the others tomorrow.

My question is regarding the service going forward after I make my purchase. Has anyone here had first hand experience with these dealerships? Is there one superior to the other? Any horror stories?

I have never dealt with a dealership in the past as I have never owned a new car. Any help advice/help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

Brampton is NW of Toronto. I guess this is a GTA thread....

I've had an oil change at Colony about 15 years ago, and it was positive.

Honestly, most of the Ford dealers in the GTA are fine, but none of them are truly "stand out". Most people I know and work with like Erindale or White Oak Ford in Mississauga, Kennedy in Oakville and Eastgate in Hamilton. I bought mine at Eastgate and they seem fine, but nothing to write home about. Parkway Ford in Waterloo has an outstanding reputation but not too close for you (or me)

I say stick with your selling dealer if it is convenient until they give you a reason not to.

I've bought Fords from 3 different dealers in Burlington-Hamilton (also west of Greater Toronto Area) over the years, they've all been fair with the sale to me, and I've come to expect nothing after the purchase. I very much prefer getting EVERYTHING done at a private garage where I can actually speak to the mechanic. As this is a mainstream vehicle, the independents know what they need to know, or they learn quick.

As for where to buy, do your research but listento your gut too. Good luck!
