"Mendota Ford is one of the best dealerships I've been to. Their salesman, Jason, was very knowledgeable, helpful, and curtious through out our entire purchase process. The car was already an excellent deal, but Jason and Tony made sure they got us the best interest rate and the best price. The environment at Mendota Ford is so welcoming and easy going. They don't make you feel pressured at all, which is a nice change from other dealerships. I can't say enough great things about them! Make sure you check them out for your next car purchase, you won't be disappointed.."

"Hey! You other Dealerships out there...Listen up! You want 100% Customer Satisfaction? You want tons of word-of-mouth referrals? You want loads of free advertising from your Clients? Repeat business and 100% loyalty? Well...take a lesson from Mendota Ford. You won't go wrong if you follow their philosophy. I was looking for a good used vehicle and was referred to Tony Milus at Mendota Ford. Best referral I ever got! Tony found a vehicle - a 2008 Ford Escape - at the Peru store that looked like it fit the bill for me. He drove us down there from Mendota, suffered through my test drive, and after I made my decision, allowed me to drive it back to the Mendota facility. We negotiated a bit on the price...to my favor...and a deal was struck. I could NOT have been more pleased. I came back 2 days later to pick up the vehicle and, after a quick, painless meeting with Marvin to complete the paperwork, drove home a VERY happy customer! If you deal with Tony...you will NOT be disappointed! I would be remiss here if I didn't mention the Service and Parts departments of Mendota Ford. The vehicle I traded in on this deal was a 15-year-old Ford Explorer that reached that age only through the dedication and hard work of Dave, Jimmy, Charlie and Don. Are they that good, you ask? I think the 390,000+ miles (yes, you read that right) on my old Explorer answers that. Tony and the rest of the crew at Mendota Ford get my highest recommendation!"

I was in the market for an SUV for my wife. I contacted Tony Milus and told him what I was looking for, and he worked diligently to find us the prefect vehicle for our family. We eventually decided on the Lincoln MKX. Tony worked with us perfect to get the exact price we were looking for, and got me more for my trade in than any dealer I spoke with. Tony offered to bring the MKX to Ottawa fire me to test drive for the day. Upon purchase of the MKX I only received one key, I contacted Tony about getting key ordered and it was almost $200 so I told him to go ahead and order it . A bout an hour later Tony called me and told me they found the second key in the safe. Could have easilytaken my money , but mendota Ford believes in honesty and integrity. When I finally decide to trade in my navigator, I will be contacting Tony for an appointment. You will not be disappointed."

The experience working with Tony was great. He made sure we gave what was needed to make our experience great when we showed up. We had confidence that the car was the right one before even showing up because of his and EVERYONE at Mendota Ford we interacted with over the phone. Once we arrived the car was ready for a test drive, and the paper work was all ready for signing. The finance officer was kind and easy to work with. It was the best car buying experience I've had and would make the trip again (60 mins) to get my next Ford with these great people."

"Nick Spolec and the entire management team at Mendota Ford did an excellent job working with me through the purchase process. My situation was unique and Nick was able to help me navigate through all the obstacles. The day I picked up the car, it had been fully detailed and was ready to go. The entire team was friendly, helpful, and genuine. I will not hesitate to come back to Mendota Ford when the time comes to replace my F-150. Thank you for making the buying process stress free and actually enjoyable."

"I started shopping for a car in May 2014 after growing weary of my current crossover. Tony Milus met with me and reminding me that he knew a crossover was what I wanted... at least that is what I THOUGHT, he showed me a 2013 Ford Taurus. The Taurus was in the price range with miles I was looking for so he showed it to me and I figured why not....can I say WOW...love the car. I bought it in July and Tony was great with every new question I asked for two months and I am sure grateful when I finally drove away:) Would recommend this dealership along with Tony and Elias!!!!"

We had a great experience with Mendota Ford! My Husband and I have never bought a vehicle from here before, but we are glad we did! I went in looking for vehicles in a certain price range, and the salesman Tony Milus did a wonderful job helping us find what we were looking for. Tony helped us find something very suiting for our family. The vehicle we bought 08 Ford Edge came with so many great features! Tony took the time to show us in particular the Sync Technology. He Synced both my husband and my phone up before we left. Tony really took his time helping us ad answering all the question we had. We are very pleased, and would defiantly recommend Mendota Ford and Tony Milus to anyone looking for a new vehicle! Everything about our whole buying process went very smooth and they were able to help us in every way possible!"

Purchased a 2016 Ford Explorer Sport from Mendota Ford last week and can't express my appreciation enough to Jason and Jeff for staying late on a Saturday to make sure we were taken care of. I can say with confidence that the next time I look at vehicle they will be the first place I check. If you're looking for a vehicle give them a shot!"

Since 1986 I have purchased my vehicles from a Schimmer dealership in Mendota. The service I have always received has been excellent. This year, due to the Illinois law change regarding phone usage when driving, I was in the market for a new vehicle again. Jose Godina assisted me while I searched for just the right vehicle. I was very particulat about the features I did and did not want. Jose was patient and helpful. My choice of a Lincoln MKX was perfect for me. The vehicle has all of the features I wanted and more. My only complaint would be a slightly rough ride but not bad enough to deter me from purchasing it! I recommend Jose and Mendota Ford to everyone!"

"Drove 90 miles looking for the vehicle I wanted and wasn't disappointed. Not only did I get the vehicle at a great price but they beat my bank and found me a better rate. Thanks for the great ride!"

Still owing quite a bit more on my car than it was worth, I knew that finding a newer vehicle in my price range would be a challenge. I went to Mendota Ford after seeing a vehicle I was interested in on their website. After test driving it, falling in love, and filling out a credit application, we found out that the banks would only approve me with a much larger down payment than I wanted. I believe that anywhere else, this would have been the end of a sad story. But not here! Tony, Jeff, and Elias spent a few days searching far and wide for other options for me. They found me a much nicer car and gave me a fantastic deal on it. Throughout the whole process, they were incredibly friendly and helpful. It's clear that truly caring for their customers is their biggest priority. I LOVE my 2015 Ford Fusion and the awesome team that made it happen! I'll never car shop anywhere else!!"

"Mendota Ford was recommended by a co-worker and I am now a fan of this dealership. Tony went above and beyond my expectations to ensure that my needs and concerns were addressed. They were great with my trade in and made the buying experience a stress-free event. I love the car and this dealership will be my first stop for my next car purchase!"

Purchased a late model pre-owned Mercury Marquis from Tony Milus at Mendota Ford. The journey out from Chicagoland was well worth the effort. Every phase of the purchase was comfortable and clear cut. It was relaxed, timely and the staff was very "family friendly". They were upfront about the vehicle's history since they had serviced it over the years. Tony followed up, got answers to some esoteric items about a brand that is no longer manufactured, and made sure our contract and financing options had been carefully discussed in depth. No pressure, good people, real pleasure to do business with."

I have bought other cars from this dealer in the past and have been very satisfied. Jose G. was able to answer all our questions. He showed us around three different models of Fords. When my wife and I made our decision Jose was able to show us how to use all the new electronic gadgets. He and the finance manager were able to secure a used car rate of under 2.5%. I have also had excellent help in the service department working with Dave F."
