My parents got their current car from Gateway. They wouldn't stop going on about how nice the staff is to the customers. The garage people are great as well. When they tell you a time that your car is going to be done, they're usually pretty close with the time. We took my dad to get his car, and they were just finishing the oil check on it. Right on time!

I was on a family vacation from Texas, and needed some emergency repairs. Gateway Ford was the only Ford dealership that I can get to help me after stopping at 3 others from Wyoming through Rapid. everyone that I talked to was amazing and treated me like I was a lifelong customer. Larry and parts did absolutely everything and then some to help me out I left with knowing I could get my truck fixed a big smile and just an all-around amazing experience. The entire team at Gateway Ford is amazing but especially Larry in parts..

Service Recovery or the actions of a company to recover from a service issue is the most important aspect of customer service. I would like to compliment Gateway Ford Lincoln in Pierre, South Dakota for doing one of the finer jobs of service recovery I'd seen in my days as a consumer. I've observed in my times patronizing this dealership that the staff is very much focused on customer service. They greet their customers quickly and in a friendly manner in the service area and go out of their way to accommodate schedules by providing rides to work or to the dealership. Their cost for service is reasonable and competitive with other dealerships. Last Friday, I had an oil change done on my Ford F-150 pickup. It took a short time and I received a call to retrieve it when finished. I drove the pickup home and used it over the weekend. On Monday morning I noticed that there was a pool of oil under the pickup. I opened the hood and saw that the oil filler cap was sitting on the battery. It was accidently left off when they were doing the oil change. I checked the oil levels right away and found that there was no oil showing on the dipstick. The interior of the engine compartment was covered in oil and was a real mess. The next morning, I went to the dealership and told my tale. Scott, the Service Manager, was quick to respond. He apologized profusely, dispatched a couple of technicians to my home located about 12 miles out of town, put oil into the vehicle and drove it back to the dealership where they did an extensive cleaning, inside and out. When they were done, they returned it to my home. There was no damage, the problem was fixed and the vehicle returned to my home in better condition than before it went in for the oil change. Anyone can make a mistake like the one I experienced but success is measured by how the dealership responds. I'll give them an A+ for theirs.
