Gerald Jones Ford Receives 2021 Consumer Satisfaction Award by DealerRater

April 2021

Gerald Jones Ford has been awarded a 2021 DealerRater Consumer Satisfaction Award

An annual recognition given to auto dealerships that deliver outstanding customer service as rated by online customer reviews. DealerRater, the world’s leading car dealer review website, created the Consumer Satisfaction Award program to let online car shoppers instantly spot dealers that provide high-quality customer service.

Consumer Satisfaction Awards are given to the top 10 percent of U.S. new-car dealers based on their PowerScore™, as well as top independent and Canadian dealerships that receive at least 25 annual reviews and maintain a minimum average PowerScore™ rating of 4.0 out of 5.0. The PowerScore™ is determined using a Bayesian algorithm that factors the dealership’s average DealerRater consumer rating and the total number of reviews written about the dealership during the 2020 calendar year.

“We’d like to congratulate Gerald Jones Ford and all of our Consumer Satisfaction Award winners,” said DealerRater General Manager, Jamie Oldershaw. “DealerRater’s extensive review database allows shoppers to identify dealerships that are providing excellent customer experiences, and it’s clear that Gerald Jones Ford stands out amongst its peers in Georgia.”

Gerald Jones Ford has achieved consistently high scores on the DealerRater website, placing it among the top dealerships nationwide. Online shoppers visiting Gerald Jones Ford will find a “2021 Consumer Satisfaction Award Winner” badge on their profile to instantly recognize it as a high-quality dealership.

“We are proud and honored to be recognized as a 2021 DealerRater Consumer Satisfaction Award Winner,” says Brian Winters, General Manager. “Our team works tirelessly to give our guests a stress-free buying experience. This carries over into our service and parts departments, where addressing our customers’ needs and exceeding their expectations, is our highest priority. This award recognizes the efforts of our valued team members and the gratitude we have for our loyal guests.”

Gerald Jones Ford Donates Masks During Pandemic

April 2021

Ford Motor Company is encouraging Americans to #FinishStrong—to pull together and protect each other to help save lives in the months ahead until COVID-19 vaccines become more widely available.

As the company’s philanthropic arm, Ford Fund is leading Ford’s effort to donate 120 million masks to communities across the United States by mid-2021.

The last week of February, Brian Winters, the General Manager at Gerald Jones Ford, visited Augusta Christian Schools and donated thousands of Ford face masks to their staff and students.

We also were able to distribute free face masks to anyone who stopped by our store at no cost to them.

Since August, Ford Motor Company distributed more than 98 million medical-grade masks to nonprofit organizations, state and local officials, first responders, schools, community groups and Ford dealerships in all 50 states.

UPDATE | Christmas Car Challenge 2020

January 2021

2020 Christmas Car Challenge!

Our Christmas Car Challenge ended with a bang! From December 1-24, we donated $100 for every new and used car sold to The Salvation Army of Augusta and we were able to make our LARGEST SINGLE DONATION to date:

$48,500!

This donation will be used in several ways for The Salvation Army of Augusta Center of Hope; providing food, clothing, toys for Christmas, and financial assistance for rent and utilities through their Social Services Assistance Program. All that to say this donation is being used locally to help Augusta people in need.

“It’s really heartwarming. Unfortunately, a lot of people today, especially with the pandemic, need the help. Augusta is famous for helping people. There’s a lot of charities in this area. They’re all good causes. This just happens to be one that strikes in my heart and when you got hungry children, hungry people…this is something that we need to do,” said Andy Jones of Gerald Jones Auto Group.

Douglas McClure, Area Commander of The Salvation Army Augusta said, “We received a check for $48,500. It’s almost like they knew exactly how much we needed for these families. So, it’s really exciting to have this opportunity to serve and serve with people like Gerald Jones Auto Group.”

This is our 7th year participating, and it brings our total in Christmas Car Challenge donations to over $240,000.
