George H. - Ford Escape Purchase
This was an out of city purchased. I live in Tampa and my father in Port Charlotte. Our sales assistant, Arthur, was excellent. Working through email, text, and phone calls, Arthur helped me find the perfect vehicle for my father. I had to drive to the dealership to finalize all the paperwork and I had limited time. The closing process was completed in a timely manner. My father is very happy with his new vehicle.

Amy F. - F-Series Purchase
Was recently referred by a friend to go see Bob. He made the process simple by not nagging us, listening to what we were looking for and only offering vehicles that were in our price range and that we were interested in. He did not try to "sell" us which was a major factor in our purchase. The finance team and expedited process all occurred within hours and we drove home in a new car the same day. Would recommend this dealership and have to everyone!

Ronald C. - Ford Edge Purchase
Overall after 4 vehicle purchases over 13 years Gasgarth Ford had been a great dealership to deal with. We ordered our latest new vehicle {an Edge) and found out after a month that it would take another month to get it and we needed the vehicle sooner. They found another exact vehicle in the Miami area and brought it over for our purchase. We were very pleased with the service.

Cheryl K. - Ford Fusion Purchase
"My experience was first rate from returning my lease care to delivery of new lease car - which happened in less than 2 hours from the time I walked in the dealership to the time I got in my new car to drive home!!! Little Bob was outstanding. He gave me all the information I needed to decide on my new car. He took the time to show me several vehicles and even demonstrated that my golf clubs would fit in each vehicle!!!! Chris processed all my lease papers and had my car insurance transferred in less than 45 minutes!!! When I came out to pick up my new car, Little Bob had already transferred everything from the car I was turning in to my new car!!!! What a pleasant surprise!!! All in all, it was a very pleasant afternoon!!! I am continually impressed with this dealership! In addition, I have used the Service Department for the past 6 years and have always been completely satisfied with professionalism of staff, quality of service and timeliness of service. The one time my car wasn't going to be finished by the end of the day, they drove me over to the Enterprise car rental office and took care of renting me a car for the evening. Outstanding customer service!!!! Wouldn't go anywhere else to lease my cars!!!!"

M&S Heavy Equipment  - Purchase F-Series Super Duty
"All facets of our transaction went smoothly. We actually live in Broward County Florida on the east coast and once we found Don Gasgarth Ford in Port Charlotte we have been purchasing and having all our vehicles serviced there. The time & commitment from the employees is far superior to the Ford dealers on Florida's east coast. We will continue to use Don Gasgarth Ford."
Hollywood, FL.

Robert H. - Ford Escape Purchase
"I was hesitant about purchasing a vehicle in Florida to be taken back to Michigan, Dan Myers, our salesman from Don Gasgarth's Charlotte County Ford made it happen without any problem. I will have to depend on getting service on my vehicle in Michigan!!"
Davison, MI.

Thomas M. Ford F 150
"My over all experience at the dealership went well. My salesman was very polite and courteous and took the extra time to explain the features of my F-150.I never had a salesman take that much time to explain every detail of my new vehicle. He even set some things up for me. Finance department went over every detail of the financing so I could understand it. Dealership just went through a major renovation and it looks fantastic. Can't think of anything to improve upon at the moment. Great job to everyone at Don Gasgarth Ford in Port Charlotte Florida."
Port Charlotte, FL.

Rick Z. - Service
This is my first experience with Don Gasgarth's Charlotte County Ford. Contacted Dealer to perform a recall, dealer representative obtained information, ordered parts and contacted me to bring car in for the repair. Service Adviser followed through with repair and verified the recall was complete. At the time I brought the vehicle in for the recall I explained and issue with the leather being frayed on the driver seat back. Service adviser took pictures of the defect and forwarded to Ford Motor Co, obtained authorization for the repair and order the seat back cover. Dealer contacted me to schedule the repair. I will be dropping the vehicle off next week for the replacement seat back. My experience with Don Gasgarth's Charlotte County Ford has been very positive and I am completely satisfied with their professional approach to helping customers with the service issues. Keep up the good work.
