I would strongly recommend avoiding this dealership

by SeattleVehicle on 07/08/2017

In summary, I would avoid this dealership. I used edmunds.com and the ford website to try and `internet search' for a car and deal. I was contacted by this dealership. They told me that they had a truck with my specifications. They `got me in the door' and we worked through all of the details to make a deal. They assured me they could get the vehicle. Then, they pulled my credit, made me sign a document with a price and specific VIN, and told me that the truck would be at the dealership the next morning. I received a call that night saying that there was some sort of `miscommunication' between their dealership and the vehicle they located. The truck actually had substantial aftermarket work that objectively changed the character of the vehicle. I told them that I did not want these extras. I wanted the truck that I (and the websites) clearly laid out for them. They then sent me trucks that did not fit my specifications. At this point, I walked away from that dealership to restart my search. This obviously wasted quite a bit of time and energy on my part. I found the truck that I wanted through my own internet searching and went to that dealership and bought it. The story, however, does not end there. The general manager of this Bellevue dealership contacted me about three weeks after my interactions with them. He indicated that he wanted to see if they could still sell me a truck. I thanked him for the email and communication. I then told him that I found the truck that I wanted and already bought it. I also copied a descriptive email between myself and his salesperson about why I walked away. Despite being clear and fact-based with my description about my experience (which could have been more integrated with an emotional response), the general manager did not respond well. He indicated that they spent time and energy on their end. Also, they do not appreciate when the `target moves' and they lose a deal. I responded saying the target did not move, they lost the deal because they could not find the truck that I specified. Further, I found the truck at a Ford dealership in Washington state with my own internet searching that matched the same specifications that I gave them and the internet search tools like edmunds.com. I had a pretty bad experience with this dealership. I would recommend avoiding buying a vehicle through them.

Wow! Amazing Customer Service, Amazing Communication and Amazing Experience

by JohnH013 on 05/05/2017

You do not come in to an auto dealership looking for a repair in much of a positive mood. I had a horrible experience at another dealer and with my in trepidation made the call to AutoNation Ford Bellevue. Immediately Victoria who answered and was directing me asked open questions to get an understanding of what my current needs were and shared who she was sending me over to for more information. Let's just say I was concerned as the last dealerships person didn't ask question and just wanted a signature. Instead, Michelle answered and asked a couple more questions then welcomed me back to AutoNation. In the next couple minutes she answered questions, understood my situation (Kentucky Derby Party and Birthday this weekend), she found me the first available time to come in and even let me drop my truck off the night before to miss traffic. Michelle promised a call back before noon and she did not disappoint (10:57 AM), she had an "English" not car speak solution of what was occurring and options. I asked a question to see if I could do part now and part next week, I was not trying to stump or make her day hard but she didn't flinch. She brought me a response from a mechanic in less than 3 minutes and told me the cost and when it would be available. The final piece of this great service was she promised a time and it was done earlier, I feel like AutoNation Ford Bellevue was looking out for me, had my interests at heart and put great energy in to making my life easier and lowering my stress of an auto problem. I would highly suggest using AutoNation for anyone in my friend or family circle and definitely make the trip to Bellevue for an amazing customer service experience!

DO NOT BUY A USED CAR FROM AUTONATION!!!

by blindstrom on 12/01/2016

Writing this review gives me absolutely no pleasure, but I feel that I need to get this information out there for all people who are considering purchasing a used car from AutoNation Ford, Bellevue. In the spring of this year, we needed to purchase our son a car. He is a college student who had an internship that put him in constant contact with people in the upper echelons of Eastside society. Because of this, we felt he needed a somewhat “status” car – and the used BMW we bought from AutoNation Ford, Bellevue, was all we could afford. And initially, we were very pleased. The salesperson we worked with was very nice and the finance guy was very accommodating and able to get us better financing than we had expected. Because the car was somewhat old (2009) we also purchased an after-market warranty plan. There was one small issue with a service light shortly after we drove the car off the lot, and the dealership had my son bring the car in, gave him a loaner, and fixed the problem. Fast forward about a month – all of a sudden several service lights went on in the car. We called about it and they had us take the car into AutoNation BMW, Bellevue, for service. There they found that the car needed $6,000+ in repairs – an amount more than half of what we paid for for the car. The warranty covered $4,000 of the repairs, thank goodness. We then had the service department prioritize the remaining needed repairs. As we have 2 kids in college, we could only afford at that time to have about $800 worth of the repairs done, figuring we would get the rest of the repairs done at a later date. So I stewed about this situation for a long time and decided to write a letter to the General Manager, with a cc: to the Sales Manager and the CEO of AutoNation. I didn’t really ask for any type of remedy but the “crickets” as a result of the letter were disappointing. Still, we made an appointment & my son took the car in for the remaining repairs – for which we were expecting to pay about $1,400.00. My son got a call that the car was ready, but shortly after I received a call that upon putting everything back together, they discovered another problem, which was going to be an additional $1,600.00 – for a total service bill of $3,000.00. Well, we didn’t really have any other option than to have it repaired, as we didn’t want my son breaking down. At that time, I lost it. I phoned the General Manager and left a message re: my fury at the entire situation and asking him to call me back to discuss possible remedies. Surprise, surprise – crickets. So that is why I am leaving this review here and elsewhere. I am also going to be filing a complaint with the Attorney General’s Office. (As an aside, the additional problem they found ended up being easier to repair than originally expected, so the total bill as a result of this visit was a little over $2,000.00) I am well aware of the concept of “caveat emptor” (buyer beware) and that BMWs can be very expensive to repair. I also suppose AutoNation is not obligated to do a thing about this situation. I just have to believe, though, that either the “inspection” they do of used cars is cursory and limited to cosmetic issues, which is really disappointing, or that the inspection they did do made them aware of the issues and they chose not to tell us – knowing full well that we would not have purchased the car had we know the extent of required repairs. We are now having to look at trading this car in and getting my son a more reliable car – and letting everyone we know, including my son’s fraternity brothers (who are all about to enter into the local job market) not to purchase a car, a used car, anyway, from AutoNation.

First Visit

by davidbrown53 on 11/01/2016

This was the first service since purchasing my car from AutoNation Ford Bellevue. I dropped the car off the night before asking for scheduled service plus I asked them to check out some other concerns I had from driving in pot-hole-filled Seattle. They performed the scheduled service and gave me a detailed description addressing my concerns. I left feeling confident my car was as safe as when I drove it off the lot.

Outstanding

by senseiofsong on 09/07/2016

My experience working with Tim Stakkestad and the team at AutoNation Ford of Bellevue WA was outstanding (5 out of 5). I’m a man who knows what he wants in advance and prefers to not spend time driving to different dealers trying to figure it out. Shopping and talking often lead to being pressured by the same old sales techniques and waiting while the salesperson checks with the sale manager. I hate that. I experienced none of this at AutoNation. Instead, a few detailed emails that showed my payoff amount, what I expected for my trade, the discounts I wanted, where I wanted my payment to be, and the vehicle an features I wanted, and within 24 hours I was driving my new Ford F-150 off the lot. Likely the easiest experience I have ever had buying a new truck. If you do not like the old school sales pressure ways that everyone expects to have to deal with when shopping for a new vehicle, then give Tim and the AutoNation Ford of Bellevue a try.

No-presure, good price, great truck!

by HappyCamper83 on 07/22/2016

My wife and I contacted five Ford dealers in the Seattle area to find a new truck for our new truck camper. Tim Skakkestad at AutoNation in Bellevue, WA was very responsive in helping us find an F-350 that was close to our target vehicle. He and his sales manager were flexible in putting together a package that was lower in price than any of the other dealers we visited, and we were not subjected to "hot-boxing" or other high pressure sales techniques, as we were at another Ford dealer in the area (who literally chased us out the dealership door while lowering his price). Five stars to Tim and AutoNation Bellevue!

2013 Ford Explorer

by Wbraden7 on 06/23/2016

Jeremy and the team at Autonation Ford in Bellevue were fantastic. I got in and out in a few hours which is unheard of when buying a car. My 2013 Ford Explorer is awesome and when a little issue popped up with the brakes, they took care of it thoroughly and quickly.

Finally fixed after a few tries

by rukidding25 on 06/22/2016

Service was great. Unfortunately it's taken a total four trips to a dealership to get this resolved, twice to this dealership and twice to another dealership. I first brought the car in before the warranty expired but it's taken so long to get it fixed that it's no longer under warranty.

Good experience except one bad apple

by idahomarine on 02/05/2016

-Service Department is five stars, Josh (Service Manager) and Kyle H., are awesome to work with. I have a 2000 Ford F350 7.3L and Kyle is the ONLY mechanic I will let work on my truck. -Sales: I would rate as four stars. Yiwen "George" Li was a wonderful salesman, he and David made the transaction as smooth as a sales experience could go. The General Manager was professional and stepped in to help complete the transaction on a Certified Pre-Owned F150. -Finance: The rating scale does not go low enough to rate Jim in finance. A zero would be providing a complete disservice to the number zero. First he was the most pushy person I have ever met. He does not understand when a customer says, "no thank you", that it should be his cue to move on. He was rude, condescending, disrespectful, and unprofessional. After telling him no thank you and no several times when he was offering the extended maintenance plan, I was forced to walk out of his office and get the GM. We have secured 1.9% financing vice the 3.9% that he offered as his "best deal". If you are purchasing a vehicle from Bellevue AutoNation, you are highly encouraged to find your own financing. Do not fall prey to his attempted strong arm tactics!!!!!!

Sales overall 10++

by Dawn2015 on 10/27/2015

Tim our salesmen was very pleasant, informative and helped us get into a new F-150. We had a lot of negative equity in the car that we were trading in and they managed to reduce that in the purchase of the new vehicle with the rebates.

Best car buying experience I've ever had....

by callmejer80 on 09/28/2015

Tim and the team at Autonation Ford Bellevue really knocked it out of the park. From start to finish, the experience was unlike any other I've had in the past. I popped open my laptop and worked while they did all the heavy lifting. I left feeling great about my purchase and will likely purchase my next C-Max there. Great job, guys!

One bad apple

by desert3785 on 08/19/2015

Here's a prime example that one bad apple can sour a car purchase. In purchasing a 2015 Ford Transit XLT from AutoNation Ford Bellevue I found the entire staff to be excellent. In particular, my salesman was a very nice fellow. However the finance guy was rude and disrespectful to me. His immature approach to doing business was appalling. When I politely declined the myriad of extended warranties, service plans, paint sealant, undercoating, upholstery protectant, etc, etc, he was visibly displeased. He claimed that I was difficult to deal with and that he was not going to make any money off me. Additionally, the fact that I was making payment in full by check also bothered him. He begged that I make some sort of a partial payment and pay the rest later so that he would make some money off the deal. I scribbled out my check for the full amount, dropped it on the desk in front of him, scooped up my paperwork, said thank you, and left. I DID get the car I wanted. I will go back if I HAVE to.

Went in for a Volvo, drove away in a Fusion

by Gobo_Baggins on 04/06/2015

I initially saw a Craigslist add for a pre-owned Volvo, and since I was in the market for a new car, I figured I'd take a look. I'm 33 and it was the first time on a car lot. Needless to say, I had no credit whatsoever. Nor did my girlfriend. We both have had the mentality of "cash up front" for years. At least a decade. Well, the Volvo had too many miles to get financed, but that didn't stop Austin or Jim from doing everything they could to get me in a new car that day. We laid out our budget and finances, and Austin showed us a 2007 Ford Fusion. Luckily we were able to get financed and we drove it home that day. Austin was a fantastic sales rep. He wasn't pushy at all, and really wanted to make sure I not only got what I wanted, but that I enjoyed what I got. Jim worked really hard to get us the right financing for the car, and was just as excited as we were when it finally went through. The car itself is fantastic. After just 48 hours I fell in love. It's smooth and handles great. For a V6, it does fine with gas mileage. And most importantly it's comfortable. Although I came in for an Audi S60, I left with a Ford Fusion. And I couldn't be happier.
