Maxwell Ford was stupendous in the quality of their work (a leaking transmission), the shortness of the time it took to do it (less than 1/2 the time quoted by the other Austin Ford dealership) and its superior customer service. This dealership really has its act together. Best of all were my interactions with Ashley Parkhurst with backup by John Sullivan. They were prompt, professional, pleasant and thorough. The dealership itself was spotless. Bravo, Maxwell Ford!
