How to Replace A Vehicle Air Filter

Two Years at Leif Johnson Ford

Yesterday I took a shotgun ride in probably the coolest car ever. The 2016 Ford Mustang, California Special Edition. The top was down, the wind was blowing in my hair and Taylor Swift was on the radio. The Mustang makes you feel like summer could go on forever. I’m Christina, the social media representative at Leif Johnson Ford. This means I am the blog writer, the social media updater, employee and customer interviewer and etcetera. It’s a fun gig, but it’s especially fun because of where I work and who I get to work with. I’ve made great friends and taken some great rides. Cruising around in F-150s, Mustangs, Fiestas and every Ford in between has taught me that these rides really are Built Ford Tough. Ford truly focuses on safety, reliability and innovation like no other car company. Did you know they’re working on an Apple watch to pair with and help control your car? Or that they’re developing a spider screen to keep the creepy crawlies out of your vehicle? Or that the 2015 F-150 …

Customer of the Week: Christiana

Christiana Elmer cannot say enough good things about her experience at Truck City Ford. From the moment I meet her, she is absolutely beaming about her time spent with us. Decked out in fashionable leather boots and coat with a bubbly personality to match, she tells me all about why she believes Truck City outshines all other dealerships she’s dealt with in the past. “They went above and beyond” she says, mentioning that she had been accustomed to rude salesman at other dealerships beforehand. That definitely wasn’t the case at Truck City. From her salesman Sergio to the guys working in parts, Christiana cannot get over how “nice” and “wonderful” every single team member was. She was so thankful for this kindness and helpfulness that she even came back bearing gifts for Sergio’s new baby girl. Christiana decided to pay us a visit after her husband had a great experience buying his vehicle from Truck City.  Now that she’s found us, it definitely doesn’t sound like she’ll be going anywhere else for her Ford-buying in the future!

Customer Highlights: Tim Garrett

Customer Tim Garrett was led to Truck City by his brother, who recommended our dealership based on the several trucks he’d bought from us in the past. Owner of Laguna Landscape, Tim was in need of a reliable and durable truck. And that’s exactly what he found here at Truck City. He tells us that his time spent with his car dealer Eddie was a “Completely different experience” than any he’s had at other car dealerships in the past. He recounts his time at another dealership, where he had to fill out application after application. Tim says he remembers thinking to himself, “I don’t belong here.” That’s where Truck City came in. “I said ‘Here’s what I need’ and he (Eddie) said ‘Okay.”  It was just that simple, and Tim loved that. He notes that the process was so much easier than any he’d ever experienced anywhere else. Tim and his brother have both bought multiple trucks from Truck City in the past, and plan on continuing to do so in the future. When asked about owning his own landscape business, Tim …
