A good idea to have a poll bearing in mind the problems some of you have had with your dealerships. I consider myself very lucky with my Ford dealer, Whitwell Garage on the Isle of Wight, who give five-star all-round service, unlike the main Ford dealership on the Island.
I have dealt with them for around the last 8 years or so and have never had any problems. Whitwell Garage even won the national award for Ford customer service and deserve all the plaudits. :) (I don't work for them either !!).

I have answered from the point of view of the dealer I use to service my car - not the dealer that I actually got the car from.

Smiths Garage in Pinwall - 5 star in every way. Great value for money, free courtesy car for servicing and they always follow my requests regarding the washing of the car.

Heartlands Ford in Tamworth - where I purchased the car. Utterly terrible. Car was prepared badly despite me asking them not to touch it. Staff were mostly arrogant and none were particularly knowledgeable about Ford in general and the Fiesta specifically. The quote I got for the first service was OUTRAGEOUS and they wouldn't offer a courtesy car.

I always ask them not to. This seemingly simple request is often ignored.

Boland's Ford Garage Wexford town, Ireland, Top sales and after sales care, bit far for you guys to travel but a warm welcome when you get there.

They didn't give any discount for paying cash though, just through in a proper spare wheel and spacing kit for the boot,

Although they did admire my Clear fog light conversion and ST rear spoiler modifications when I dropped it in for a service last month.B)

maclin motors in dunfermline.

Up until i needed work done on the car, they where fine, promised the world. warrenty wasnt worth the paper it was written on.
Under the warrenty ALL electrcal is cover, except the headed screen. It must be powered by fairy dust... so big arguements, and no further forward.
Basically down to one man. Completly felt ripped off.
so because of him they get 1 out of 5

we went to our local garage which is in endon stoke on trent, when we first had the focus about the anti theft device not locking on the fuel pipe, after arguing for approx 20 mins we decided to leave as he said that it doesnt lock, dont need a cap, and the flap doesnt lock. tried telling this to arnold clarke (purchased the car from) still same thick as pig !Removed!. Fell out over the price of servicing etc.... they had a major attitude problem when you questioned there knowledge, and it stunk even though they were wrong....

Kerr Baillie ford garage in ardrossan. Always give me excellent service and always very helpful/willing to answer any questions I have. Also not one of these garages that make up faults just to get more money out of you. When they say they done a job for you, theyve done it and to a very high standard
