Car Tip Of The Week: Filling Your Gas Tank

Here’s a great tip for everyone that gets in different vehicles everyday and needs to pump gas.  Every vehicle has an arrow that indicates what side the gas cap is on, so you will know what side you need to fill up on without getting out and looking for it.  This will save time and embarrassment from pulling up to fill your gas tank and realizing you’re on the wrong side…not to mention having to maneuver around a busy gas station to get to another pump so you can fill-up. 

Check out all of our useful Car Tips Of The Week here

The Brighton Ford Service Department repairs all makes and models.  Stop in, call ahead (810-227-1171) or schedule your drop-off time for auto maintenance and repair here.

Pet Of The Week: Misty

I am Misty, a SUPER SWEET, gentle, black/brown short hair tabby with gorgeous aqua green eyes born in August 2006 and FRONT DECLAWED. I lived in a very active home with young children, another cat, and a dog and was doing well until I became very stressed when my best feline friend passed away and I could not adjust to living with the dog. My family says I am a sweet, well behaved girl who is very affectionate, always used my litter box, and just need to find a quiet home where I can relax and feel loved.

*Adopt a Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week and the Humane Society of Livingston County will give you 10% off your adoption fees if you mention seeing this blog.*

Brighton Ford At The Meals on Wheels Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

Brighton Ford was honored to be a part of the Meals on Wheels (MoW) Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.  We have partnered with Meals on Wheels of Livingston and Western Oakland County and are helping with their social media management, video production and some special digital campaigns.  The reason Brighton Ford continues to help this awesome non-profit organization is because we care about our community and Meals on Wheels helps the, often times forgotten, homebound seniors in the community that we serve. 

Click here to learn more about the organizations Brighton Ford supports in our community

MoW’s annual thank you dinner for their volunteers was a huge success!  This year’s pirate theme made it fun for everyone and the food prepared by Meals on Wheels Chef Ed Carrico’ was very delicious.  The turkey, the stuffing, potatoes and dessert truly made it a Thanksgiving feast.  Many of MoW’s volunteers went home with great prizes in the raffle for all and the floor mat and solar powered light were given to every guest at the dinner.  A huge thank you to Mystic Creek Banquet Center for hosting and a great all around night!  Also, thank you to Reverend Doug McMunn from Milford United Methodist Church for his blessing!  The entertainment of the Barbershop Quartet, the Livingston Lamplighters “Sharp Attack”, made for a very entertaining night. 

Thank you to each and every volunteer for Meals on Wheels, whether you volunteered once during the year or 4 days a week, MoW’s could never do what they do without your help!  They are delivering 1,500 meals a day and making a huge difference in our community with pet and child programs as well.  MoW’s is looking forward to another great year of serving the homebound seniors of Livingston and Western Oakland County!

Welcome To The Brighton Ford Family

Here at Brighton Ford we treat our customers like family and that’s why we have been in Brighton for over 29 years!  We respect our customers and listen to their needs, unlike many dealerships that use one way communication and simply tell their customers what car and payment is best for them.  Our sales team for new Ford vehicles and used cars, trucks and SUVs are here to earn your business and not to simply sell you.  There are many other reasons that our customers say they love Brighton Ford and are proud to be a member of our extended family.  One aspect of our business that can’t be overlooked is our community involvement!  We are part of and work with over 50 local non-profits and donate our time and/or funds to over 300 local events a year. 

So there are plenty of reasons to be proud of being a part of the Brighton Ford family!

We have won the People’s Choice Award given out by the Livingston Daily Press & Argus for Best Dealership in Livingston County for the last 16 years in a row.  We also earned the Best Dealership Service and Best Collision Shop in Livingston County Awards this year.  It means a lot to Brighton Ford that the readers of the Livingston Daily voted for us, as we sure love serving anyone with an automotive need.    

Another huge benefit of joining the Brighton Ford family is we give you the easiest car buying experience possible.  One way is that we offer free delivery on new or used purchases to South Lyon, Hartland, Howell, Fenton, Ann Arbor, Novi, Livonia, Wixom, Brighton, Milford, New Hudson, Pinckney, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and everywhere else in the country.

We have served over 185,000 and look forward to helping even more year, after year at our Ford dealership at I-96 and Grand River in Brighton, Michigan.  If you’re not part of the Brighton Ford family, then it’s only fair to at least give us a chance to earn your business, like we have to so many in Livingston, Oakland, Genesee, Shiawassee, Ingham, Jackson and Washtenaw Counties.   

Check out this Google review from a member of our Brighton Ford family:

"In February our family managed to total two cars, mine being the first.  I found two cars, identical except for color, at two separate dealerships, one being Brighton Ford.  When I called on the vehicles Jack Ringwood sold me on Brighton Ford.  To name a few things:
•         He was accommodating; willing to stay as late as needed to get the transaction done.
•         As my husband was traveling, he offered to return my rental car so I didn't have to worry about it.
•         I had my youngest daughter with me and he was engaging during the transaction so she was not bored - making the process that much easier on me.
•         He was knowledgeable about the vehicle and was able to answer my questions.
•         He was respectful; he spoke to me, not at me and was an active listener during the entire process.
    Now if that were the end of the story, it would equate to a very pleasant experience.  However, while I was in the midst of the paperwork for the Flex, my husband called informing me he totaled his car on his drive up north.  Jack expedited my transaction, allowed me to leave my rental car in the lot overnight (as it appeared we were going to need it) and volunteered to have me come back and go over the details on my car the next day.
    As a result of his professionalism with my transaction he earned a second sale, as the following week my husband purchased an F150.
    I've always been a Ford girl, but Jack has ensured I will be a continued Brighton Ford customer.  In addition, their hours of operation are perfect for those of us who work - I was floored at the number of dealerships who are not open late or on weekends - yet another reason to refer the dealership."

Ford Tech Creates Water Out of Thin Air

Ford doesn’t have a car yet that can run on water, but it does have one with running water.

A powertrain engineer working for the automaker has developed a system that uses the condensation from an automobile’s air conditioner to provide drinkable water.

Doug Martin got the idea for On-The-Go H20 when he drove by a billboard in Lima, Peru, fitted with similar technology that was extracting over 25 gallons of water from the air every day. It made him realize that a lot of potentially potable water generated by automobiles was being dumped on the road and wasted, when it could be put toward a good use.

It’s a simple concept optimized for this automotive application with a collector positioned near the air conditioner’s condenser that channels the fluid into a reservoir. From there, it’s filtered and pumped to a faucet located either in the cabin -- as it is in one demonstration vehicle Martin’s team put together – or on the outside of the vehicle.

The current system supplies about 24 ounces of water per hour from the atmosphere, but can also be used to purify dirty water from other sources -- even rain collected in channels on the roof. While the concept features a passive 1.2 micron filtration system, Martin is exploring the incorporation of a distiller powered by other powertrain heat sources, as well as ultraviolet light.

Ford sees it as a boon to dry regions and underdeveloped areas where millions of people don’t have regular access to clean water. It could also be offered as a feature on adventure vehicles, or simply as a convenience for road trips.

My Wife Will Kill Me If I Buy A Lifted Truck!

You see them all over the road and probably one or two in your subdivision. The lifted truck! It is the latest craze in the truck market and has been for a couple years now. Originally used for "Mud Bogging", you no longer need to hose down the neighbors backyard to enjoy one of these monsters. Let's face it, they are pretty darn cool and in an automotive world where everything looks the same, these babies set you apart. From 16 to 60 years old, these trucks are in high demand but light on supply. You don't need a Camaro or Corvette to satisfy your mid-life crisis, the absolute fun in driving one of these will bring you back to your youth and add years to your life!

Brighton Ford has all makes and models of lifted trucks, from Chevy to Ram and Ford to GM!  Stop in for a test drive today or give us a call to schedule one at 810-227-1171

Blog written by Brighton Ford Salesman Jack Ringwood, here’s a little background on Jack:
I have lived here in the Brighton area for over 20 years and have raised my family in this great "country" community. Between community and church involvement, scouting and my career here in the area, I've seen some pretty amazing changes over the years.

Brighton Ford has been here longer than me.

This is going to sound strange coming from a car salesman, but I'm not here to sell you anything. My job... my goal... is to help you find the perfect vehicle that YOU want. One that has the right equiptment and miles for you at a price or payment that fits your budget.

Ive been in this business for a long time, and worked for a few dealerships. Ive been at Brighton Ford for 10+ years, and here is why Brighton Ford is different from everyone else. It's easy to buy a car here!

Come in and test drive any vehicle that you may be interested in. Tell me which one you want to buy and what your budget is. That's it! There is no magic to any of this.

You aren't going to find hidden costs, or the "surprises" that so many car shoppers find at other dealerships. I don't need to "trick" you into buying a car. I'm going to help you buy the car YOU want.

They say everyone needs a Doctor, Lawyer, and Car Guy....When you say "I've got a guy".....I want that guy to be me. Give me a call!

Here’s Jack’s contact information if you would like him to find the car, truck or SUV of your dreams:

Brighton Ford: Finding New Ways to Give Back

Check out this awesome write-up from the Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce on our involvement in the community:  

While most companies give back, Brighton Ford takes that commitment to a whole new level. As co-owner Todd Spitler tells it, even after winning a Ford Motor Company award for philanthropy in 2009, they saw they could do more. “We realized we had the resources to help connect the dots between organizations and raise awareness of the great work they do in our community. Today, we’re part of more than 50 local organizations, and our involvement goes beyond giving money to real ‘boots on the ground’ work, like serving on boards, creating Facebook campaigns, and mentoring local students.”

An example of Brighton Ford’s commitment to the community is visible to anyone who drives the area’s roads: a billboard campaign highlighting local organizations that otherwise couldn’t afford a billboard. “The work of organizations like LACASA, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and the Livingston County Salvation Army directly benefits our community. We’re happy to use our resources to help them get the word out,” says Todd.

Another example of Brighton Ford’s “boots on the ground” approach is its service department’s apprenticeship program. Sixteen-year-olds at Brighton and Pinckney High Schools are eligible for the program, which places them in the dealership’s quick service department, teaches them in-demand skills, and provides them with mentors. Many of these students go on to Ford’s ASSET program, eventually becoming certified service techs working in the community. “We’ve built our dealership from the ground up,” says Todd, “and we’re proud to be part of building a stronger community for everyone.”

Brighton Ford Pet Of The Week: Ms. Fluffy

I am called Ms. Fluffy. I am a GORGEOUS, long hair, grey and white (spayed) female born in 2014. I was very bonded with my owner and became quite confused and unhappy when he moved and could not take me along. He said I was a very well behaved girl and enjoyed being the only cat in my home to receive all the love and attention. I liked to be brushed, play with toys, use a good scratching post and even liked to climb into the shower. I am used to a quiet, adult home and would be SO HAPPY to find someone to love again!

Customer Experience: Grinding Brakes

Two days ago my brakes started grinding something horrible.  If you heard or felt the grinding yourself, you would be convinced that I had neglected the problem for some time.  But I swear, the grinding started all of a sudden, without any squeaking or warning of any kind.  I promise!  I limped the truck home, fortunately without incident. 

Yesterday, I woke up a little early and drove to the dealership in the next town over.  I arrived at 7:00am right as they were opening, without notice or appointment.  I pulled inside their service center and was promptly greeted by a service advisor.  She was very friendly and welcoming.  I explained that I had no appointment, but didn't dare drive any further with my brakes grinding as they were.  She typed in my information and created a service ticket of some sort.  She called the rental car company for me, and then walked me to their waiting room. 

The waiting room is nicer than many offices I’ve been in.  Couches, chairs, a TV, a table with magazines, vending machines, and my favorite part… small desk-like workstations for people like me who try to stay productive.  I sat at one, took out my laptop, and managed to get a little work done as I waited patiently for my rental car.  A representative from the rental car company came and got me after a few moments, I signed some papers, and off to work I went.  Wait!  Not so fast!  As I was walking to the rental car, say 45 minutes after arriving, I bumped into my friendly service advisor who was looking for me.  I was informed that a tech had already looked at my brakes, and was fairly certain I needed pads and rotors.  She promised to call once they had an estimate prepared, but just wanted to keep my in the loop in the meantime. 

A couple hours after I arrived at work, I received a call from my friendly service advisor.  She explained that it would be five-hundred and some odd dollars, and explained exactly what they were going to do.  Obviously not wanting to spend any more time than absolutely necessary in my rental Fiesta, I gave the go-ahead.  Around 3:00pm later that day, ring-ring… your truck is all ready to go.  Come and get it. 

When I arrived back at the dealership to pick up my truck, I was walked to the cashier by my friendly service advisor, who stood by to make sure the transaction went smooth.  Much to my surprise, she had attached a couple coupons and a $25 rebate to my service ticket.  Not necessary, not expected, but a nice touch.  By the time I paid my tab, my truck had been pulled inside and was made ready for me.  I left the rental car in the parking lot, and they arranged to get it returned to the rental car company for me.       

This is an example of a phenomenal customer experience.  It is not a coincidence or an oversight on my part that I didn’t mention the heavy-duty brake pads and rotors, or how big their shop was.  I didn’t mention it, because it doesn't matter.  My customer experience was defined by how I felt about this transaction, which was wonderful, but also somewhat predetermined by the history of experiences I’ve had with this dealership over the duration of our business relationship. 

Yesterday morning when I drove to Brighton Ford, I literally drove past a more conveniently located Ford dealership on my way there.  The thought of going to a different dealership, even one closer to my house, never crossed my mind.  You see, Brighton Ford has turned me into somewhat of a customer advocate by maintaining a consistent customer experience.  An experience, by the way, that I applaud. 

I’ve purchased several vehicles from them over the years.  Our salesperson calls both my wife and I each and every year to wish us a happy birthday.  I think my wife still has a voicemail saved of him actually singing happy birthday to her one year.  He’s a great guy, and further adds to the overall customer experience. 

Here’s the point.  Customer experience doesn't come from how good your product is.  A lot of times, it doesn't even come from how well you perform your billable service.  Customer experience is defined by how you make your customers feel.
