Customer Testimonials

Wonderful buying experience

To whom it may concern:

Just wanted to advise others that it would be very hard to achieve the level of satisfaction that I have experienced with Tommie Vaughn Motors.

I can personally attest to the professionalism displayed by J D Stalker in making my transactions as seamless and pleasant as I could have hoped for.

Indeed, both he and Anthony went the extra mile to ensure every aspect of the car trade-in and buying process were without equal.

I can only highly recommend that anyone in the car market look first to Tommie Vaughn. I now understand why they have such a sterling reputation for this highly competitive business.

They take the time to realize the importance of the personal touch in purchase decisions of this importance.

Kudos to all employees there, and feel free to post my review. The experience was delightful. Thanks!

Bill Talge

Good afternoon, my name is Debbie Rockelmann and my son Jonathan Rockelmann has used your location twice in the last six months. He was hit last October and Bill Talge took such good care of the repairs and helped us with the insurance company because they had dropped the ball.

The next time was just yesterday, August 12, 2013. Jonathan lost his keys to his car and had tried two different lock smiths and no one could help us. We remembered just how much Bill had helped the past so I called him and asked for his assistance. He explained what I would need to get the job done. I don't know if you have children but even when they are grown they don't have it all together. My son didn't have the paperwork that was needed to re-key his car. Bill went out of his way to help Jonathan. He helped Jonathan contact the Ford location here in McAllen, Texas so they could fax over the sales slip and I was able to scan the insurance forms. Bill knew Jonathan had an important meeting first thing this morning so he made sure that Jonathan got his car back before you closed. My son works right across the street from your location so Bill called him and Jonathan was able to run across and pick up his car.

I can't thank Bill enough for his help. We live in McAllen so as a mom it is frustrating when you don't have means to help your son.

You and your company should know how much we appreciate how helpful Bill was. You should only wish you had 100 employees like him. I have worked in customer service all my life and I don't see this kind of service anymore.

Thanks to your company and Bill again. Have a good day.

Great Service!

I just wanted to say thanks for the great service via Bobby Harrell on my F-150. He took the time to explain the fix that was done on my spark plug and the future maintenance considerations. I will definitely be taking both of my ford vehicles to Tommy Vaughn for service thanks to Bobby!

I Love My Truck! It's Awesome.

Hello Jorge Lopez,

Good to see you at the Chris Myers autograph session. Just wanted to let you know that I love my truck; it's awesome. I wanted to share a story (true one) that has happened in the last few months concerning my truck:1) Liz and I were coming home from a friends house that lives in Nassua Bay. It was just barely dark at the time. We were coming up to a large bayou when I noticed a white truck down below with a couple of guys walking around it mired up in mud. I proceeded to make a u-turn and Liz was questioning me as to what I was doing. I told her that I think some guys are stuck in the mud. Liz, the sensible one, started in on me that this was a brand new truck; you are going to mess it up. You know, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I could not go in forward, I had to back down the steep slope and this really excited Liz. I guided the truck to stay out of the mud and got close enough to the Chevy Z-71 to hook up to the truck. One of the guys was on his cell phone trying to get some help. He hung up and both men were glad I came by. Come to find out, both of these men were Harris County Deputies and were fishing in the bayou. They said they tried and tried to get unstuck but kept sinking more and more. They already had straps hooked to their truck when I had pulled up. They hooked onto my 3-way ball hitch and was questioning whether this truck could pull them out. One of the deputies walked to the front of my truck and said "Hey, it's a F-350, it might do it". You have to imagine that the wheels on their truck was barely visible due to the rocking of back / forth to get out previously. I got back into my truck, put it into tow/haul, 4L, and barely gave it the pedal and out came the Chevy. Liz could not believe that we were already free from the mud hole. The guys really appreciated it and by now, it was really dark. One of the deputies took another look at my truck and said " There is something wrong with this picture, a Ford pulling a Chevy"? Yes, it happens.

Sales Experience


Thank You very much for facilitating my trade-in and purchase visit today. David helped me picked out a really nice 2013 that was right up my alley. Michael, it was nice meeting you as well…it’s great to see an operation working as a team – that is how I run my crew! I want to make sure that Christina is also compensated on my deal – I mean that sincerely. She was the only reason I chose to visit Tommie Vaughn, instead of the other 15 dealerships who were calling/emailing me. She was courteous and kind on the telephone, and most of all, punctual with responding to my requests. She must be rewarded for her hard work. David did a great job in helping me select the right vehicle for me – he was quick and honest – which is what I like. I’ll be happy to refer any friends/family by way of your team at Tommie Vaughn if I know someone is looking for a Ford, or a used car you have on your lot.

Service Experience

Dear Elizabeth,

I will respond with the highest ratings possible. I LOVE my service experiences at Tommie Vaughn Ford. I am so grateful to have found a place that welcomes me, is honest with me and that I feel confident in receiving only what I need. The shuttle service is a Godsend to me as I am on my own. The ability to come have my fluids and tires checked FREE is WONDERFUL.

Thank you for your very friendly, cheerful attitude. I felt you and the service staff were genuinely interested in my well-being and in giving great customer attention.

I will look forward to the next visit.

Have a very happy, safe Fourth of July next week! God Bless America!

Blessings to you and yours,

I just wanted to say Thank you from both Brittany and myself. We absolutely love our blacked out F150 FX2! It is exactly what I wanted and for the price you gave me I am very pleased. I am telling Kirby and all our friends how well our experience buying a car from you was. I am going to send as much business your way as I possibly can. Never has buying a car been so easy than it was with you. Thanks so much.

Body Shop Sales Experience

March 8, 2012

Mr. Vaughn, I am sending this message to compliment your Body Shop. Brenda and the staff have again provided me with the most professional service of any dealership I have ever dealt with. For at least the past six (6) years, I have been relying upon Tommy Vaughn for my body work. You have repaired my 2006 F150, my 2008 E450 RV, and my 2008 Explorer on a number of occasions. Each time I was not only pleased with the professional results, but also pleased with the expedient nature of the repairs. I highly recommend Tommy Vaughn and will shop Tommy Vaughn for my next new vechicle purchase!

Sincerely, Justin Despot

Dear David - Just wanted to send you a short note to thank you again for making my transition from the Suburban to the Expedition EL so easy. Believe me I went in on Saturday thinking there was no way I was going to be able to do this deal, and when you showed me the numbers, it was so much better than I expected I couldn't say no. We love the car and are now life long Tommie Vaughn customers. Thanks again for everything.

Best Regards, Mark A. Schusterman, M.D.

Body Shop Sales Experience

Big hats off to the Body Shop...had a minor owie to my 09 Escape...the process was seamless...I was SO happy that State Farm has certified the shop. Three phone calls and one estimate and my claim was ready. I was promised completion in 3 was actually 2! Everyone was professional and rare in most businesses these days. My car was washed and clean inside and out...I would swear it was detailed! Please pass my complements to the team. It just so happened to be my birthday too...I appreciated the note and personal call from Don Stokley. I plan to attend a Sync seminar soon. What a great idea...when I told a co-worker...who bought a Chevy...he was jealous! I am sure to sing your praises...and send anyone looking for a great dealership your way!

I have to say that I am satisfied with their professionalism in the sales department and their knowledge in repairing what they sell. This is most important to me! I have to have faith that what they say is the truth, and they have proven that to me over the years. Tommie Vaughn Motors is a Class Act!!

Christine went way out of her way to help me get the truck I wanted without having to settle. Also, she was able to work out the best interest rate and price possible.

They plan on highly recommending Tommie Vaughn to their family and friends. Thanks so much to you, Kirby & "Good Ole Tommie Vaughn" for all your help.

Service Department

I want to commend Tommie Vaughn Ford and particularly Roland Escobar in the Truck shop, and Brenda (I am terribly sorry I can't recall her last name) in the Collision center for their assistance today. I brought my truck in for a recall repair to add a bracket for fuel safety, and after that was complete I noticed my left rear fender well molding was loose. I traveled from Jersey Village where I work, which was not the best convenience for me. They took care of me quickly and efficiently in both repairs and I was in the shop for less than 2 hours. Their courtesy and professionalism are excellent and noteworthy.
