Read up on the 2017 #Ford #Fusion. It might surprise you! http://bit.ly/1UpKqGW
No one really cross shops a Ford Fusion and a BMW 3 Series. But now that we know it has a tire stomping 380 lb-ft of torque and costs under $34,000, could this new Ford Fusion Sport be the affordable, German-slaying American sedan we’ve been waiting for?

The salesman, Austin, was great. I knew exactly what I wanted going there. He listened and knew what I wanted. I wanted a used crew cab pickup truck, preferably Ford. He didn't try to sell me anything else but that which was awesome. The finance lady, Brenda, was great. I wasn't able to get the truck I first looked at that I wanted. But the next day they made some magic happen and ended up getting an even better truck for around the same price and was even my favorite color. black! It was the quickest buying experience I've ever had and that was awesome!! Literally took an hour to an hour and a half at most altogether.

I've used Charles Gabus for my last two oil changes and after today I don't think I will use them again. I took my car in about a month and a half ago to get the transmission looked at (mind you I have a 2014 Ford Focus). After 1000 miles it started having the same problems so I brought it back in. My car was going to take the majority of the day to fix so I had to leave it there. In all of my experiences dealing with service shops I have NEVER had to pay for a loaner car before especially just for a day. Today was not the case. I now have to pay 30 dollars for a rental car when the issue I am having get fixed is still under warranty. From now on any other issues I have with my car will be sent to a different Ford dealer UPDATE: When I got my car back this morning it was still dirty despite the websites GUARANTEE that my car would be clean and new...Not mention multiple things had been messed with in my car. To top it off not one person explained why my car was having the issues it was all they told me was what they did to it. Charles Gabus lost a loyal customer today and multiple of my coworkers and friends have said they will not go back to them after I was treated this way

Was there for an oil change on 4/20 and everyone was so friendly. The service guys greeted me immediately and even opened doors for me, very unexpected and courteous! The asst manager who checked me in was very friendly, fast, and professional. The waiting area was clean and conveniently laid out so I could make a few phone calls semi-privately. My oil change and tire rotation didn't take long and to my surprise they even washed my car when they were finished! Gabus definitely left a great impression with me. These guys know what excellent customer service is!

knowledgeable sales the man (Trey Porter). He helped me find exactly what i was looking for, right down to my color wife wanted. Then I went to the finance gal. Not only was she helpful but she made me feel relaxed. I don't buy vehicles often but will be back when my wife's car needs replacing

I came in expecting to see a great deal I found online. It had sold. I instead was shown better deal. Jeff, Brad, and Daniel were all phenomenal at making sure that I understood every detail and was happy with every decision I made along the way. Brad was especially helpful, being gracious as well as very patient. My sisters and I were quite a handful asking lots of questions. Overall, I am confident with my choice. Thank you.

I was very impressed with my Sales Associate Austin. He was very helpful and did an excellent job explaining what a Certified Vehicle is and how it is a great value and piece of mind. Austin also answered all my questions with a great since of ease. My experience with the Sales Manager Mike was equally rewarding. He was very honest on what he would be willing to close on our deal. A+ to both Austin and Mike!
