Purchased a vehicle with excellent customer service from Blake & RC. Blake made the purchase as stress free as possible & answered questions in a timely fashion. RC made the financial part of the purchase as pleasant as possible. Thank you everyone at Santa Margarita Ford.

Had a terrific experience. Freddy was my service advisor, and he would always keep me in the loop by contacting me on the phone. Went previously to a Ford dealership in Tustin, these guys are way more professional and courteous. No issues, my new go to Ford dealer.

Great and courteous service. Awesome communication system. They keep you updated every step of the way. Yes, they are a bit more expensive than other shops but, quality does have a price and when you have an oldie but goody like mine, you want only the experts to take care of her!

Santa Margarita Ford dealership is truly amazing. The entire staff is professional and friendly. I purchased my Raptor from SM Ford and Eric Habermehl the Sales Manager, Sales Associate Skye Saab and Ramon RC Cabral the Finance Manager truly made it the best vehicle purchase experience that I've ever had. It was the most relaxing vehicle purchase that I've ever made and I've purchased numerous vehicles in my lifetime. The entire dealership staff is professional and friendly and very acomidating to the customer needs. So if your researching dealerships to purchase a vehicle and to service your ...

I had my first service on my Ford Escape 2020. My service rep is Duane Litz. He got my car in right away and it was done under the estimated time. When I picked my car up it was washed and cleaned and looks brand new. Also I was having some issues on how to work some of the features on the car. So one of the reps name George sat in the car with me explained everything. The next day I had an issue with the hood on my car with some marks that were not their fault but mine. ...

I had a very positive experience. They follow up, as good sales people do, but they don't keep pressing you so I didn't feel pressure. They led with good terms, rather than a "quote high, watch them buy" mentality, and I felt good about the terms I agreed to. They gave me space to look at and consider different options, rather than direct me in any way. Everyone was courteous and responsive. Getting in and out with my new car was stress-free and didn't take a ton of time. I would definitely recommend this dealership ...

I ended up talking with Dan Hernandez about the best deals on the used lot. Then before I made it across the sales floor, there was a seemless handoff to Brandon. I felt like the most important guy in the store and Brandon basically sold me a car without "selling me" on a car. I NEVER buy a car on the first visit to a dealership, but somehow I did this time, with zero buyers remorse. That sale would have normally not happened on that night. Big ups to Dan and ESPECIALLY Brandon.

Dan Hernandez is the absolute most informed sales person I've met. Devoted plenty of time to explain my new truck. This is now the 4th vehicle purchase at Santa Margarita Ford and have worked with Dan on each time.

One of the easiest and stress free car buying experience I have ever had. I spoke with Shervin Hashemi and discussed what I was looking for and could afford and he had it ready to test drive when I arrived. After the test drive I was introduced to Jeff the sales Mgr. and Dave in finance. Everything was done quickly, professionally and hassle free.

Experience overall was good, my first new car in the US and I fell for some fees I should't had to pay. Staff is friendly and helpful. My only problem was not to have done the homework before stopping in, it wasn't a rip off but I could still save around 3-4K. I think if you get yourself informed before stopping by you would get awesome service and a nice deal!

The newer used vehicles are extremely well priced and in excellent condition. Most are also certified pre owned and very clean. They had many different colors and models of each used vehicle which made it easier to shop.

We purchased our 3rd vehicle from Santa Margarita Ford. Always easy to work with. We always use Drazen as our sales guy. He is knowleagable about the vehicles, the features and price points. Not pushy, really focused on getting you the vehicle that best suits your needs and budget. The sales process is quick, they know you are wanting to get in and out.

Always go to #1 First! I've dealt with 3 other O.C. Ford dealers and then found Santa Margarita Ford. Whenever we are looking for used, fleet or new vehicles, we ALWAYS go to SMF. Our first Ford was 1973 and now on our 13th Ford, last week, we have a working knowledge of OC dealerships. Dakotah was professional, listened to want we wanted and why, selected a few cars to look at, and we purchased a beautiful 2017 XLT Ford Explorer. Her name is "Miss Daisy" and she arrived on the truck 3 hours before I arrived. Dakotah, our salesman, is ...

This is the 4th car I have purchased from Santa Margarita Ford. Each time the experience has been the same. Outstanding. Scott Delabar was our salesman as he was in the previous 3 times. The experience is always the same , I got the car I wanted at a fair price with friendly and professional assistance. I highly recommend this dealership and Scott.

My Family purchased a used Ford C-MAX Energi - great experience (and great car, so far). I appreciate when on-line shopping for a used vehicle that Santa Margarita Ford shares the original MSRP sticker along with the current pictures and description - contains all options & features and makes for easier analysis. Between family members - I think we have purchased a half dozen cars from SM Ford over the years. I might need another one in 2018. Sales Representative - Robbie Moore took great care of us the last few years. Thanks!

I just bought a used Honda CRV, and the entire process was a great experience. My salesman, David Olender, was VERY helpful and not overbearing. I think I got a great deal on a pristine vehicle. It is the 2nd used car I have purchased at Santa Margarita Ford. The first car was a Chrysler PT Cruiser that I got 13 years ago. It was also a great ride. I would HIGHLY recommend this dealer to anyone looking for a car, and I look forward to doing business with Mr. Olender again !

Great Experience end to end! They have a nice play room for the kids to occupy the little ones while we finalized the deal.

I have a 2012 Ford Edge. Soon after I bought it, I started smelling burnt oil from the car. I brought it to a Ford Dealer in Costa Mesa CA and after multiple assurances that it was fixed, the smell continued. Once the car was out of warrantee (3 years but only 16k miles) I noted and issues with the power steering (in addition to the returning smell of burnt oil). I was told that the power steering unit was leaking oil but they could not say it was the cause of the smell they attempted to fix three time in the ...
