I just want to express my gratitude that you and all of your staff at Bob  Ridings extended to me during my positive experience of purchasing a vehicle from you all. You were more than courteous to me and made me feel very comfortable. Although I drove approximately 7 hours to get to your location, I left feeling that I would definitely entertain the possibility of making the trip again if in fact you had the specific vehicle that I wanted. My new (to me) Expedition EL Limited will be a  vehicle that my family will enjoy for many years ahead. We intend to take this on a 12 hr. road trip to Outerbanks of North Carolina. With this, you know that this vehicle will help reduce the stress that comes with 3 toddlers. My wife and 3 children were waiting at the door when I returned home late that evening. We all must have spent 15 minutes "playing" in the vehicle before it was time to put the kids down for bed. My wife truly loved the roses and I am wearing the new hat even as I type this letter! Again, thanks so much for the positive experience and I will try to persuade anyone I know to check out your website and  inventory because you all truly have a "truck farm" on-site!!!

Jason, Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that I appreciated your professionalism in your profession. You, again made the truck buying/trading a very reasonable experience. As a salesman myself for 30+ year, I can appreciate that you are straight forward, honest, and do not try to do anything but make a reasonable deal that both dealer and buyer can live with. This is all that a customer should ever expect. I really am enjoying the new truck and appreciate your efforts in finding exactly what I wanted; then getting it delivered from the other dealer. Know that I'll always give you an opportunity to have my business-at least I've found that Bob Ridings Ford has been willing to be reasonable in their negotiations for new vehicles. I still remember that I was visiting with Mr. Ridings on my last purchase and he said that you all were "just down there having a good time selling cars"--sounded good to me!

Bob Ridings Taylorville: Tim and I had the pleasure of working with Scott Henne this past week while we attempted to find the "perfect car" for us. Scott was wonderful to work with, very knowledgeable and provided excellent customer service on every aspect and it made the job of finding the right car easy to do. Scott took the time to show us all the features as well as setting some features up for us like our iPhone since we have never had a car with so many features. He also took care of a few items that needed to be fixed on the car prior to our purchasing it. We really appreciated his commitment to customer service. I would also like to mention our interaction with Tim (finance) was also a great experience. Tim was knowledgeable on the programs that Ford offered and was able to answer all our questions and made the car purchase a pleasant experience. I would not hesitate to return to your dealership in the future for any additional needs we have as well as spread the word of a great experience to anyone I know in the market for a vehicle

Bob Ridings Taylorville: 2nd Vehicle we have purchased from B. Ridings with Ron P. Ron is "fun" to work with, his vehicle knowledge is exemplary, his professionalism, courtesy, willingness to go the extra mile and find the "perfect" vehicle of our choice and affordability. We have highly recommended Bob Ridings, Taylorville and Ron Pritchard in particular. IF we don't keep this beautiful 2014 Edge forever, we'll be back. We allow Bob Ridings service to maintain all service needs and are very pleased with the Ridings service Department. Of course with such quality and craftsmanship in Ford products, simple maintenance is all we ever needed. We have loved all our Fords; 1990 Ranger, 2000 Ranger, 2007 Ford Escape from Bob Ridings, traded up to a 2012 Ford Escape and then traded up to the 2014 Edge. We couldn't be happier, but, I would almost recommend one thing for consumers. When purchasing a brand new vehicle with all the new electronic bells and whistles, it would almost be a great benefit to hold new owner classes on Saturday afternoons to assist consumers with understanding all the new "toys" on their vehicle so they can easily, safely drive their new vehicle utilizing all it has to offer.

Bob Ridings Taylorville: I just wanted to take the time to write to you and to tell you how much this purchase has really meant to me. My son is so proud and so happy with his first new truck. The timing couldn't have been better. He lost a very dear uncle on the very day we came to buy the truck. It was a very difficult time for him. Between you and Kim you made his dream come true. By delivering the truck to our home in Springfield and making the paperwork so easy to fill out, and by sending the nicest gentlemen possible to our home, you truly showed how you would go above and beyond for one of your customers. And I don't think you could've asked for a better person to advertise for you. The truck is polished and clean every day and proudly has your sticker on the tailgate. He has also told everyone he talks to everything that you did for him. The camouflage hat and the roses only top everything off. Again I just want to say that this whole transaction meant more to me than you will ever know. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making his dream come true. When you walked us into that shop and showed us that truck, I could see his eyes light up and I just knew in my heart that that was the truck for him! I guarantee you that you will have many more customers because of him!!!! Please share this letter with your boss and Kim and tell them I said thank you!

Bob Ridings Taylorville: This was a warranty issue for the A/C. I haven't had a chance to run the A/C much yet but it was fairly warm out yesterday and it seemed to be working fine. Was told it would be a 2 hour job but it took less time than that, service department is very friendly and courteous.
Charles Bridges
Bob Ridings Taylorville: Zach Greene was great. He listened to what I wanted and needed. My requirements were strict and hard to meet, yet he found the cars on the lot that met my must-haves. He treated me as a person and a professional. I would definitely recommend him to others
Lori Basiewicz
Bob Ridings Taylorville: My daughter came in for an oil change the day before and was told her front brakes needed to be replaced. She was leaving the following day to drive to Georgia for the summer. Your team made the extra effort to get that work done before she left and that meant working her into a full schedule. THANK YOU!
Karen Brockelsby
Bob Ridings Taylorville: Thank you for making the purchase of my new van very easy and enjoyable. I have not purchased a vehicle before from a dealership where it didn't take hours and I felt like my entire day was being wasted just to try to buy a car. This was a great experience and I would definitely recommend sending any of my friends or family over to buy a car from Bob Ridings.
Nicole Killen
Bob Ridings Taylorville: I have bought many vehicles/trucks in my time. Garrett by far has been the BEST salesperson I have ever dealt with. I had many questions and he had all the answers without going to some other person. the other things I valued the most is that fact he did not pressure me. he gave me time to think about this truck deal. on pricing, I noticed he did not run back and forth to someone in the background to get answers. he did it right there for me. I'm not use to that at all. Another thing that you as a dealership need to know. Garrett worked with me on days when he was off either by phone or text messaging. that was awesome. I am a supt for Ameren and I value my co-workers on principles that are much like your employee. this guy is an awesome salesperson. I hope any young salespeople you may hire gets put under his wing to learn how to sell vehicles. thank you very much. I love my truck. I hope this gets passed on to Garrett.
Robert Barcum
Bob Ridings Taylorville: We have a Ford dealership within two (2) miles of our home, but after the initial visit with Jeff Cowell, we knew the extra miles were well worth the trip. He is definitely an asset to the dealership. Jeff goes way beyond what I have ever experienced in the past when purchasing a car, promptly returning calls and answering all our questions, searching for an Edge with the exact options we wanted,  but when that Edge was not out there, ordering it was so easy. From beginning to end, the whole experience has been actually pleasant. Great job Jeff, well done!
Phillip Curry
Bob Ridings Taylorville: We recently purchased our sixth vehicle from bob ridings. The two salesmen that we had purchased thru are no longer at this dealership, so that's all there is to say about that....but the service department is why we keep coming back. JAY, TRAVIS and the rest of the service department are top notch. whenever we had a problem they took care of what ever it might be. Recently, our battery died on our new car. With a phone call, they came and picked up the vehicle and fixed the problem, then delivered the car back to our home while we were at work! So the car was ready when we came home. There are more examples, but I'll keep this short. The bottom line is, this service department is why we continually purchase, happily, from bob ridings.
C. Lavin
Bob Ridings Taylorville: I came to look at a specific truck. It was ready for me to check out when I got there. I found out on the way to the dealership that I had a short amount of time to be there. I drove the truck, got my trade in offer, and bought the truck. I thought I would have to come back to finish the paperwork, but everyone involved pulled together and got me going quickly. I live 75 miles away, so a saved trip was great. I had great treatment, and the fastest sale and paperwork ever. Great job everyone
Todd Wilcoxen
Bob Ridings Taylorville: We met Jeff Webb Thursday night. We talked to him around a hour. We told him we would come back Saturday to test drive some vehicles in daylight and hopefully warmer weather. I told my wife Debbie that we would buy her car through Jeff because of his honesty and he was not a pushy salesman. Debbie took Friday off from work to pursue her goal of getting a newer car. Jeff was very energetic in providing us with warm ready vehicles to test drive. Jeff did a fabulous job in providing answers to any and all of our questions. If Jeff didn't have a answer to a question he looked it up or went to others for help. We were going to use TCU for financing. Jeff Webb turned us on to the best loan rate thru Bob Ridings Ford. Thank you Bob Ridings Ford for getting Debbie into a newer car.

Bob Ridings Taylorville: I think that Jason is wonderful, this is our second vehicle in the driveway from Jason! I have referred friends and family to Jason because I know he will take care of them as if they were his family.

Bob Ridings Taylorville: My wife, Mary Beth, and I have been coming to Bob Ridings ever since we bought our first Ranger there back in 1995. We very much enjoy the service and staff there and plan to visit BRF in the future!

Bob Ridings Taylorville: Lucy went above and beyond what I've experienced from other car salespersons in her attempt to make this an enjoyable and stress free process.I hope the mustang proves to be as good as it looks and with sales personel as proffesinal as Lucy,I very well may make further purchases from Ridings!.Once again ,Lucy did great,and I hope follow up service continues to be of excellent nature.Thank you and yours truly,Joe Zucco

Bob Ridings Taylorville: Very friendly and knowledgeable. I hadn't gone shopping for a vehicle for many years, and Ron made everything so easy. I will tell my friends to go see Ron, if they are interested in getting a different vehicle.
Kathy Schmidt
Bob Ridings Taylorville: We bring all of our vehicles to you and will be adding one soon. I don't trust anyone but you and your team. Thanks for always doing a great job for a great price!
Ashley Blackburn
Bob Ridings Taylorville: as I came in for a basic oil change, I was promptly greeted and was treated like they knew me and saw me everyday. Every staff member that walked by smiled and said hello. Although the waiting room was full, the wait was much shorter than I expected it would be. Excellent service and worth the wait.
Ryan Archery
Bob Ridings Taylorville: My wife and I were very please with our experience at Ridings in Taylorville. We got the car we wanted at the price needed. Everyone worked together to accomplish this. Our salesman Jacob Lahr has to be one of the best salesman I have ever worked with. He was polite, kind, helpful, and real. Not the usual phony. My rule is like this, If I have a bad experience with the salesman and I feel like he is trying to make my decisions for me, I will not return. We will with out a doubt refer friends and family to visit Bob Ridings in Taylorville and also request Jacob Lahr as their salesman. Thank You, Todd Ater

Bob Ridings Taylorville: Jason Bough is the internet sales person at Bob Ridings Ford at Taylorville. I have bought one new and two used vehicles from Jason and I have been very happy with each purchase. Jason was very easy to work with and he went to great lengths to make sure that everything was right with the vehicles. I trusted Jason to do his best for me and I feel that he did more than I expected.
