I would like to give a special thanks to Jeremy for being very professional and knowledgeable with my car. He answered every question I had and gave me a really good deal to fix the issues within the car. Thank you jeremy! He definitely deserve a raise!

Review №2

Got my black beauty oil changed today. Although it took time it gave me time to pay bills, relax, read my Bible, have some expresso and coffee with a small snack supplied by basil. Wonderful service and a great way to start my day thanks Basil you are a blessing.

Review №3

The service department is amazing. Jose excels at customer service. He makes sure you understand what was done in a friendly manor. He’s always taken good care of me. Also a new thing that was nice, I think her name was Jenny. She was checking to see if everyone was taken care of. Thanks everyone I was in and out in a timely manner.

Review №4

I cannot begin to express how easy Basil made buying a new car. Ed and Jordan made everything as smooth as possible to get me in a newer vehicle without breaking bank, considering how the car market is right now. It was the best experience I’ve ever had at a dealership, no BS and very straightforward. I can’t recommend these guys enough!

Review №5

This was a much more positive buying experience than I have experienced in the past at other local dealerships. There was no bs, everything was pretty straightforward, and when they reached their limit they stated so. They gave a reasonable offer for a trade in. When I brought the truck back a day after purchase because a tail light bulb went out, they replaced it free if charge and even expedited me in the service line. Overall it was a good buying experience.

Review №6

Went in for an oil change and tire rotation at the QuickLane. I’m not sure I’d call it “quick”, as it took about 2hrs for them to complete the service. Any and all service representatives I spoke to were kind and courteous. The waiting area is clean and comfortable with snacks, coffee and water. The restrooms were also clean. All in all a decent visit, just a bit longer of a wait than expected.

Review №7

Well done on sales department. Very friendly and helpful salesperson and finance agent. Very happy with my deal and will recommend Basil Ford to others. Have been getting general maintenance done for years previous now have a new vehicle to parade around in. Thanks

Review №8

Joseph and Jim were very helpful and friendly. I will definitely keep going to Basil Ford

Review №9

This is my second experience with Basil Ford. I had purchased 2 Ford Explorers and let me tell what a wonderful staff and service I have received at the dealership. They explain everything in detail when purchasing and very friendly in my opinion. I have bought cars from different dealerships in my life and this has been far most the best customer service. Service has been wonderful as well as I had a few recalls and the wait really isnt long.

Review №10

Great service everyone is so nice. I especially like Aaron. He is a true gentleman, Basil should be glad they have him. I bought all my trucks there because the service is excellent. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you Basil crew.

Review №11

This was a very good experience in that no other dealer has done the shuttle me home and wait then pick me up when work is done. That was very nice and would hope that others do the same. I was all set to wait it out but definitely liked waiting at home. Great idea and the wait wasn’t long either. I highly recommend it. Thank you

Review №12

They are truly the Most Trustworthy people I have ever met!!!Thank You all sooooo much for being the BEST DEALERSHIP EVER!!!A very Special Thank You to JIM VALINT!!! I have bought every car from Jim and there is No one who is Better than him!!!!Thank You again for yet another Perfect experience!!!!Donna

Review №13

Hi guys at Basil Ford on Harlem Rd. I thank all of you guys for your hospitality. Look people the salesman, WAGSTAFF, is one if not,, the best...💯

Review №14

Edit: I am awaiting results from a dent at least being attempted to fix, at time of signing. I love my car which otherwise appears perfect, but this was discussed. I will be happy to change my rating back to five stars when this has been addressed. Doug and Mike were still awesome and haven’t made me feel like a burden for inquiring, but it has been a week with no update from their repair team.Basil did look into the other inquiries I had quickly, and without issue.

Review №15

It was a great experience. The workers there communicate well with updates about your vehicle and my car looks just like when I bought it prior to the crash!

Review №16

I stopped in to quick lane at my basil dealer on Walden.. I was here for my 1st inspection of my one year old truck and of course I was 6 days overdue. I spoke with Aaron regarding timing and how long I would have to wait. He could see the look on my face and knew I didnt have time to wait. He asked me a few more questions about my vehicle, we talked about coming back the following week and then he asked me to hang on a second came back 2 minutes later and they were able to take me within 45 minutes my truck was done. The Tech also noticed that my oil change was way way overdue way overdue I was able to get that done at the time. Overall experience 5 customer service 5 attention to detail 5. Aaron is an asset to your business. Cant say enough just awesome!awesome!ThanksPaul Barnes

Review №17

This is the third or fourth time that I’ve visited the Service department with the 2019 Escape and it’s always Andrew that takes care of me and I know I’m going to get great customer service from him which I received today and the previous visits

Review №18

If you get into an accident, don’t go here cause they obviously don’t know how to fix cars properly. Got into an accident and got hit on my right headlight. While they fixed it fine externally, they neglected to check under the hood failed to fix my water pump and pulleys which caused the car to overheat immediately when I left the lot so now the engine is busted. They refuse to acknowledge their incompetency and blame it on my car despite my car being completely fine before the accident. The workers attempted to gaslight me into believing that they weren’t at fault despite me knowing they were. Never going back there again.

Review №19

Honestly the best dealership experience Ive ever had!I drove over 450miles to pick up a 2018 Jeep GC so pictures, communication and honesty were extremely important coming from a distance. I traded my car for a very fair price and they stuck to their word on everything and were super easy to work with. In and out in about an hour with no BS and nothing to complain about.Thank you Basil Ford!

Review №20

Service was amazing. Honest and right to the point. Def recommend doing business with Basil.

Review №21

Going to a service department at a car dealership can often be an intimidating experience. The people at Basil Ford are the best, always helpful, friendly and affirming. Highly recommend!

Review №22

I’ve had terrible experiences at other dealers where I’ve felt like I was a hostage or being harassed. Not the case here. Friendly, accommodating, and most importantly a fair offer off the bat for my trade-in (didn’t try to low ball or play games). Highly recommend doing business with Basil.

Review №23

Great experience!! Professional and very customer focused and professional. Car test driven, purchased, detailed and driven home in 1 hour!

Review №24

Collisions Customer service is very efficient. It took several weeks to get parts however thats not their fault. With COVID-19 there are lots of issues getting things delivered. My car looks brand new! Very happy with their service. Thank you Scott and staff!

Review №25

I had been looking for the right vehicle for almost a year and this place immediately was very professional, kind, and most importantly, knowledgeable about their vehicles! I had been to 4, yes 4 other dealerships and this place went above and beyond for me. Mike Cross is the one of the most extremely thoroughly and kind sales persons I have had the pleasure to meet. All of my co-workers and friends are amazed by the luxury car I got from this dealership! The price, the luxury look, the technology, the mobile app with your vehicle... Ford, all i can say is youve done it!

Review №26

World class customer service at Basil Ford. Excellent staff. Thank you to Chuck Basil Jr., Jeremy Burgess Quick Lane Service Advisor, Zak Sajdak Quick Lane Greeter, & Pete Hauser Auto Technician. You gentlemen are absolutely awesome. All my best. Sincerely, Bruce Halpern

Review №27

I didnt like the fact that my vehicle was in service for a week but I appreciate the thoroughness of making sure the situation with my engine light was resolved I took my car to multiple places and no seem to know what was going on but you guys found and I appreciate that however it would be nice to have been given a loaner or test drive a vehicle while my car wasin waiting just saying a possible future customer

Review №28

The staff were wonderful when I came in for my first oil change and maintenance as well as an inspection. They had to work twice as hard as there was a power outage that affected just about everything, except the positive and professional attitudes of everyone I dealt with! A special thank you to Jose who did all he could under adverse conditions and always with a smile!!

Review №29

Awesome dealership with caring sales and service! Made buying a car easy!

Review №30

They we done much sooner than expected. I appreciated the text communication too.

Review №31

Very quick and easy process in buying one of their used trade ins. Was able to test drive and leave a deposit on Memorial Day and picked up the car only 2 days later! The team answered all questions, they were friendly and very professional. I love my new car more every day!

Review №32

Super easy to work with, got in and out within 30 minutes of the test drive. Negotiations are easy and they will work with you. Go see Kevin Hartman!

Review №33

Everyone was very pleasant and helpful and we will definitely be returning thank you 😊

Review №34

Todays routine maintenance appointment went very well. It was quick, straight to the point, and not too costly.

Review №35

Went to Basil Ford to have a Key made ..Soon as I entered the door in the service dept, I was greeted and asked how can i help?He did then take over to the counter and helped with getting the key for my camper. As always this dealership is always great in the past and againwith this service . 5 star service .. thank you

Review №36

I purchased a f350 desiel dump truck at Basil Ford on galleria drive the value they gave me for my trade in was great and the price of my new truck was even better. The sales people are friendly. Mike in commercial vehicles went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. The whole experience went wonderfully. I will be a returning customer

Review №37

I picked up my car from the collision shop today and it was absolutely perfect, Will recommend anyone that needs body work done, also they added a nice touch making my car a little bit more sporty looking I love it thank you so much basil for taking care of me love you will recommend

Review №38

Great experience buying my new used 2020 Lead Foot F150 at Basil Ford. Every there was professional and accommodating. Easiest, most painless experience buying a automobile. Melisa, Doug, Jeremy, and Jordon were great, and I love the truck.

Review №39

Not a long wait and excellent service. Very nice staff.

Review №40

** Buyer Beware ** Get EVERYTHING in writing particularly with the Ranger Trucks This is on their site and wrong >>>>>>> ((((( Ford Ranger Towing Capabilities and Features The Ford Ranger towing capacity of 7,500 pounds is standard across the board ))))) If that Ranger has a tow package the truck can tow 7000-7500 lbs. without only 3500 lbs. I was told it was part of the Tremor Package, I was told by the same person three times it had a tow package. We were ready to go down with a deposit and my gf decided to email everything they told us in writing to confirm the information One response back it doesnt have a tow package, no apology nothing. I called to find out what happened and asked again how much it can tow was told 7000lbs. ????????? I said that wasnt accurate. Finally I reach the same rep and he said he checked a box that declined the tow package when he ordered the truck Mind you the same rep that told me it three times the night before that it did. Had I not put everything in writing and asked them to confirm it I would own a Ranger over 40K that could only tow 3500 lbs ** Buyer Beware ** No response back saying youre going to look into this. Your a FORD DEALER you knew what you were doing.

Review №41

Friendly, knowledgeable & professional staff. Does what it takes to gain a customer.

Review №42

Basil took care of me quickly without a hassle, replacing my battery!

Review №43

Jermey was great and made this stressful experience wonderful and super easy

Review №44


Review №45

Great experience. Thank you Jeremy

Review №46

Service Advisor Jeremy Burgess provided excellent EXCELLENT Customer Service!

Review №47

I absolutely Love everything about you guys,, colin whom was my sales guy was awesome welcoming, accurate, and very friendly. Tony in financing is absolutely the best!!! He is great at what he does, and a fun guy overall i love Basil And its employees i would recommend them to anyone.

Review №48

This was my first time at the Basil Ford Service dept. Excellent service and a very friendly atmosphere!!!

Review №49

I buy my vehicles here because of the service department. The staff is always friendly and accommodating to my needs. Today Ashley was my service rep and got me in and out for service in a reasonable time.I highly recommend this company.

Review №50

Had taken my car in for a recall. Not only were they fast and professional, they found two other recalls that I didnt know about and took care of them. Great company 👍

Review №51

Everyone at Basil was accomodating and down-to-earth. Our salesperson, Miro, was a pleasure to work with. I might even nickname my new ride after him!!

Review №52

Went to 4 different dealership basil best price by far. Customer service(Mike W.) Was great. Really listened to what I wanted and what I could do. And I could not b happier with my truck and with the bbn price. Even if u go to different dealership I would highly recommend stopping into basil before signing anything .

Review №53

The staff is Professional and Courteous, There is no delay upon arrival. They get You in and out as soon as possible. I was not able to have the work completed because I could not afford the cost, but if I was able to, Basil Ford would be the only Dealership that I would go to for work on my vehicle. They really have their stuff together.

Review №54

Great experience. Saw car on line, called to see if they still had it. Made appointment, saw car, purchased car. Salesman (Charlie), was very knowledgeable, professional,courteous and helpful. Which made the long drive from Syracuse well worth it.

Review №55

Extremely easy to work with. Miro was very helpful, worked with me to get a good price. I am very satisfied with the overall service and basil ford team!

Review №56

Colin was very helpful and helped me get the car i wanted. Finance helped as well get the price i felt comfortable paying

Review №57

Quick and friendly service. Not needing an appointment for oil change+rotation+inspection was really handy before my trip.

Review №58

Incredible and honest service. They also returned my car in extremely clean condition! I will definitely be back for future service.

Review №59

The experience I had with Basil Ford was top notch. I had to go out of the Rochester area to find what I wanted. Colin Rose worked the figures and got me the best price. The deal was easy and done mostly via email and text. The deal was worked out and left pending a test drive. The test drive went awesome and I drove my new 2020 F150 home that day. The Finance Department was easy to deal with and helpful. They got me the best rate possible. Thanks for making the new truck purchase easy. Id reccomend you guys to my friends even though you are an hour away.

Review №60

Mike Cross is one of the best at his job. After visiting several dealers in the area and dealing with salesmen who are interested in simply sliding numbers around, Mike came along and earned my business now and in the future. He simply listened to what I wanted, the numbers I was hoping to hit and didnt push me on what I wanted my monthly payment to be. Mike bent over backwards to help me get the best deal and rebates. On top of that he handled every detail of my purchase so all I had to do was show up and drive away. Truly an amazing experience!

Review №61

Great service at Basil Ford. Easy to deal with service department.

Review №62

It was a very enjoyable experience. Professional and personable.

Review №63

Jose at Basil is the best! I drive 45 min to get my car serviced with Jose because I totally trust him and he makes sure everything goes smooth and correct the first time. He’s super nice too. Thanks for the great service Jose. Basil is lucky to have you.

Review №64

I had a fantastic experience with sales consultant Nick Valint and also team member Aaron Miechurski. During my time searching for a used car, Nick was straightforward and honest with me - and was able to meet me at a very fair price once I decided to purchase one. Aaron was also able to work with me on the price of the warranty, and extended some human courtesy my way after finding out that I had maxed out my budget on the car itself (warranty and fees had slipped my mind). All in all, a 10/10 in customer service - honest, straightforward, and professional.

Review №65

Andrew was great. He pinpointed my problem in a timely matter. Very knowledgeable and I was not disappointed the quick service was very good arrive at 2:15pm home by 3:45pm. Wonderful job

Review №66

I had the privilege of dealing with Charlie Salamone. I feel from the very first moment he responded to my initial inquiry he was on top of his game 100%. Very professional and extremely quick to respond to my questions. I have purchased and leased many vehicles over the years and Charlie is by far the best and most thorough sales professional i have ever dealt with.

Review №67

So far Im loving my new truck. Mike Ross did an excellent job selling the vehicle and assisting me with the numbers he knew I didnt want to go over my budget. He was very respectful and kept me up to date with everything. Mike Ross is very professional go see him at basil. The only issue I had was my credit was ran multiple times when I came in I said I only wanted it ran with capital one because I had a preapproval. Next day I had multiple inquirys really for no reason because it was capital one I wanted to finance through anyway. But that was not Mike that was another person who ran it accidently

Review №68

Andrew kern is a good service advisor

Review №69

Everything was fine EXCEPT: if they are going to change the info on my dash would they PLEASE put it back the way they found it!!!!!!!! I’m having a difficult time getting my speedometer back there where I like it.

Review №70

Check in was quick and easy. Friendly service. Work done properly.

Review №71

Had an awesome experience with Basil Fords service department. Even without an appointment they were able to trouble shoot issues with my F150 and get the work done within hours. They also found additional issues that required over 10 hours of labor and worked with my 3rd party warranty to make sure it was properly approved even with push back from the warranty company. Overall I walked away with less than a 200$ bill when the work was over 2800$. I worked with Mike in the service center and he was awesome with texting me updates and keeping me informed with the status of paperwork and the warranty. Basil’s service center is awesome.

Review №72

Any time we have been to Basil Ford we have had nothing but positive experiences, from start to finish. We can not say enough about Mike McGill he has helped us buy our last two vehicles and he goes above and beyond what is required of him. We recommend Basils for all your vehicle needs.

Review №73

Outstanding service, quickly attended to. Fair, transparent, and accommodating. Would recommend.

Review №74

Fast and professional service, I recommend to everyone, Basil Ford is number one in my book

Review №75

Awesome job by the staff at Ford. Jeremy was able to locate a set of my rare tires and completed the work in under 2 hours. Even washed the truck !!Great job!Professional and courteous staff. Highly recommend for your Ford service needs

Review №76

Mariah Irish helped me find the perfect car! It was quick and easy. Don Burnell made sure the financing process was painless. Ive leased my last 3 cars from Basil, I highly recommend them.

Review №77

I had a positive feeling with Jose Gonzalez and his members thank you Basil family

Review №78

Quick pleasant experience and reasonable prices

Review №79

I needed new tires and an alignment. I had my car worked on by Shane Monte and I’m so happy I chose there. He really took the time to make sure my car was done right and was safe to drive. He went above and beyond! Will for sure go back and see him!

Review №80

I dropped my car off to Mike on a Monday night,1/4/2021 at about 6:00 pm since my power steering suddenly went in my car. He informed me that he had no available appointments until the following Tuesday, 1/12/2022 but if possible he would see if he could get the car looked at before the The next day,1/5/2021, Mike called me and informed me that my car was done! I will absolutely be returning to Mike and Basil Ford for any service that needs to be done on my car from now on.

Review №81

Charlie S (sales) and Don B (finance) were awesome!!! From start to finish, very personable, courteous, and understanding. My husband and I swore we would never go anywhere other than West Herr for a used car, but Basil Fords buying experience was fantastic. Rarely post a review, but these guys did a terrific job and deserve some acknowledgement.

Review №82

Basil Ford and Aaron M.were able to assist me during a difficult time! My side mirror had been hit and was hanging! Couldn’t drive like that of course! AARON got me in the very next day after I called ! Part was already ordered and they even gave me a vehicle to bring home so I didn’t have to wait !! Quality customer service and care!!! Basil Ford and the team in service is second to none!!! Thank you !!!

Review №83

Waited 1 week for parts and I had to call the dealer twice to see if parts came in. No one returned my first call and no one called me when they did come in. But they got the job done and repairs seem to be successful.

Review №84

Very friendly staff, informative, and helpful. Gave me a loaner vehicle without a problem for several days while mine was serviced.

Review №85

I just had my car in for inspection with no appointment and they took me in right away with prompt and courteous service. Aaron greeted me and led me to the waiting room, handled all the paper work and was very thorough with offering any and all available services that i may require. He even changed the registration sticker for me. Thanks Again

Review №86

Andrew Kern was very helpful... Easy to talk to and made the things simple and smooth..

Review №87

My last name misspelled. Service was horrible, arrogant, condescending serviceman to a woman (me). Salesperson not truthful about ability to access phone contacts -- after car was sold, decided some phones did not work with Ford system. Had problems with shrieking brakes for a year from purchase until brakes were finally replaced. Told service dept. of problems with brakes. Had to wait THREE weeks for loaner. Never again.

Review №88

Jeremy was very knowledgeable in providing everything I needed and requested. They all were polite and patient with me and i thank GOD for them because Im so happy to have my car fixed.

Review №89

Service is absolutely terrible. No organization and employees ignore you. Multiple people NOT WEARING MASKS DURING A GLOBAL PANDEMIC. As people helping the public I was shocked at the callous disregard for others’ health as indicated by employees not wearing masks and eating while talking with customers. Newsflash. Plexiglass is not an efficient safety measure by itself. All employees and customers should be mandated to wear masks at all times when facing the public. I will never go back to this dealership. Absolute garbage.

Review №90

The personal at Basil Ford very helpful and friendly and I would recommend anybody looking for a vehicle to stop by and check them out

Review №91

I was able to make an appointment online and be in the garage within a few days at a time that was convenient for me.When I arrived I was seen right away. I felt safe due to the social distancing rules they had in place. Everyone was wearing masks, there was a sneeze guards in place, and red boxes to show where I should stand.The man who checked me in was very personable and knowledgeable. Even though the price he quoted me for a service and part I needed was ridiculously expensive - He actually gave me a fair quote that was comparable to other local places that I had checked with prior. Guess its just the nature of the car garages.The reason I went to Basil over another place is because I trust them. They have a well deserved reputation of being professional. They are very efficient and treat my time like their own.

Review №92

Great customer service, Blake gave me a great deal and was so helpful at getting me my first car!

Review №93

Excellent. Everything about this dealership is fantastic. The feel is that you are family. From the car cleaners to the general manager Frank Smiling faces and plenty of knowledge is welcomed.

Review №94

Best customer service around. Sales staff (Nick) and finance staff super helpful, not pushy and very quick. In and out with your new car without a lot of wasted time.

Review №95

I Would Just Like To Thank The Team At Basil Ford In Cheektowaga,N.Y. For There Continuing Service Of My Vechicle Done On February 18,2021 They Where Very Helpful In Explaining The Service That Needed To Be Done.And I Also Appreciate The Work That Was Done In a Timely Manner,And To Also Let Me Know What To Expect On The Next Visit.Thanks To You All The Team At Basil Ford👍🏽

Review №96

I have been dealing with Basil Ford for about 6 years and keep coming back. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. My salesman Kevin was very well informed and worked with me to find a car that I would be comfortable in. He took the time to hear me out and was respectful and courteous. That is why I continue to conduct business with Basil.

Review №97

Always a hassle with the service department. Always waiting longer than promised or rushing the job and creating more problems While changing an O2 sensor they broke the sensor off in the catalytic converter. I understand while some unforeseen situations arise, giving me a factual repair timeframe and good communication is important. Now Im waiting longer and wasnt offered a discount on the repair due to their carelessness. They did provide a free rental vehicle. Thank you for that!

Review №98

Made this normally stressful experience an easy one.

Review №99

Basil Ford is always amazing! This time Alex took very good care of me even when I was frustrated. He calmed me down and made me happy

Review №100

Love the deal I got on my sub, my payments are very decent. They conformed to me to made it easier for me because I did not have a vehicle mine was broken, so they allowed me to do most of my buisness via email messenger, and by texts. Because I was unable to get a ride there. My vehicle is and was and still is in excellent shape. Nothing but good things to day about this place
