Hands down the BEST dealership I’ve ever been to. The staff made buying a new car stress-free and super fast! Everyone was very knowledgeable and customer service was outstanding! Shout out to Robbie (the manager) who helped us every step of the way. If you’re looking to purchase a car- Robbie is your man!

The rsm service dept took care of my 2013 water pump issue in good time and as quoted. It was tough job due to the design, and overall I feel the price was fair and the service good

Always the best customer service, no cold sales pressure. They are only there to help and always easy going friendly and professional. I own a lemon "certified" but I love the car and they keep taking care of it. Even wash it before I pick it up. They are the only reason I'm keeping the car. I will trade it in there when I'm ready. Used, new they just take care of you.

I've been bringing my trucks to SMF for service for 17 years. I bought my last truck there 12.5 years ago and was given a great deal on a custom ordered truck. I just took delivery on my new truck that I ordered before the chip shortage. They agreed to a very favorable deal for me when I ordered it and honored that deal when it finally came in even in light of the very different situation surrounding new car availability. Duane in service and Robbie in sales are top notch.

Great experience in acquiring a new 2021 Ford Ranger. Pretty much the whole process was done online and once I made a decision I test drove the vehicle and signed all the paperwork and drove off in a new Ford Ranger in 30 minutes.

Majority of purchase was done online. Less than 2 hours in the dealership to pick-up. Original purchase price quoted, payment amount, and trade-in offer didn't change 1 penny! Friendly staff, clean and modern dealership. I drove almost 60 miles from Los Angeles to Rancho Santa Margarita Ford to purchase my vehicle. Due to the industry-wide shortage of vehicles, dealerships are marking-up MSRPs and charging for dealer installed add-ons. RSMF only had a minimal mark-up and no add-ons! For an example, I wrote Huntington Beach Ford regarding basically the same truck and was quoted a $10,000 markup and had some add-ons to put it $12,000 ...

This was the best car buying experience I’ve ever had! Shervin was a pleasure to work with! A day prior we had attempted to purchase a vehicle at another dealership, the process was horrible and definitely felt like we were getting swindled. Luckily we walked away and 12 hours later found the exact same vehicle at Santa Margarita Ford. Shervin responded within minutes of my inquiry and did everything he could to ensure we were getting what we wanted. He made the process easy, even while dealing with my husband who can be a little overwhelming at times. The process ...

Brought my 2016 Explorer in for servicing for a second time to RSM Ford. My vehicle was overheating on a recent trip to Arizona and it was discovered a grill shutter and motor were bad, causing a restriction to the airflow. My Service Tech Sal Preciado called and advised the part was not covered under my premium Ford Extended Warrantee Plan. Not satisfied with Ford's response, I contacted the Prior Approval Dept of Ford and pleaded my case. Ford advised the part may be considered "Potentially Covered" but needed the Service Tech to make contact and provide added ...

What a great experience we had yesterday at Santa Margarita Ford! All the people we worked with were professionals who know the products and made the decision to lease (as opposed to "buying") easy and fun. We came after we struck out at Carmax (too many people, too few cars) we left Carmax drained and frustrated, got back in our car, and started looking online for the car we really wanted (we were thinking a recent model Ford Edge) anyway, we found a listing on the SMF website that interested us - we went there, and we're ...

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.

Everyone needs to know that Sal is the best service person that I have experienced for many years. He is very direct to the point and does not give you run around about anything!

I absolutely love Santa Margarita Ford and would recommend to anyone. A little over a year ago I came to this dealership to look for a car that would provide a bit more space, since my kids are involved in sports we really needed more leg room, and truck space.

I’d get haggled, feel pressured, pushed to make a deal and made to feel as though that was the only deal I’d be able to get, etc. BUT when I came to SM Ford, the experience ...
