Our #1 goal at Hilltop Ford is to make sure that every customer is completely satisfied with their purchase experience and service; before and after the sale. Here is what some reviews and testimonials from our customers had to say:

"A Rock Star"

After waiting anxiously for months to find the perfect car, AnNisha at Hilltop Ford called us late in the afternoon to let us know that she had our car.  When we said we'd be there that day to pick it up, she didn't hesitate, even though it would mean a very late night.  When we arrived, she made sure we test drove it, and then walked us through all of the features of the car.   After our last buying experience where the salesperson at a different dealership only gave us the keys and didn't do any explanation or setup, AnNisha was a delight and very thorough to make sure the car was set up properly for us and we understood how to change the most important features.   We finally walked away 2 hours after the dealership closed with our new car and very much love it!  AnNisha and the rest of the team didn't complain a bit about being there so late.  Thanks AnNisha for being a rock star!

"So Impressed"

What a welcome surprise when Hilltop Ford Repair staff Gile White took a special interest in addressing my car issues. I came in once again to fix my heating shield which was hanging down. Mr. White looked into the history of the car, saw that I had a recall that needing taking care of. I do have to come back to permanently fix the heat shield, but how many times can you walk away from the dealer with your car fixed for nothing. I was so impressed and so grateful with the service I recieved from Gile White at Hilltop Ford.

"Helped Us Throughout the Whole Process"

Ordered and bought a new 2022 Ford Escape Titanium Hybrid. Shawn Patton helped us out through the whole process and was very helpful and friendly. She answered all our questions and most importantly was good about being honest with us. We felt like we got a fair price and the car came with no issues. It did take a very long time (about 4 months) which was annoying, but that's just the car market today so no knock on the dealership for that.
Kyle K., from Yelp

"Funny and Honest"

This review is long overdue - Trent Clevenger was fabulous! We placed an order for a Ford Mustang Mach-E in April of 2021, and he was very attentive and responsive to all of our communications and check ins as we (im)patiently waited for our car to be produced and shipped to Hilltop Ford. Finally, in December, we got the call! Trent was easily the best person I've ever worked with in the industry. He was accommodating on when we could make it to the dealership, and he made us feel welcome and comfortable during the whole process - knowledgeable, funny, and honest. I will recommend him to anyone looking to get a Ford. So lucky to have worked with him!
Sarah G., from Yelp

"Regarding our Mustang Mach-E"

Shawn Patton, our sales rep, was an absolute pleasure to work with regarding our purchase of a Mustang Mach-E. These EVs are hard to come by right now but Shawn was completely on top of keeping us apprised of the availability of new stock and made sure we were notified when our car eventually became available. Knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and keen to answer all our questions, she was diligent in finding us purchase terms that worked for us and eager to make sure we were satisfied with the transaction. It's thanks to Shawn that we're glad we chose to purchase from Hilltop Ford.
Serge A., from Yelp

"Excellent Service"

I'm so happy with my new Ranger! John Tomahn has continued to provide excellent service and is responsive to every need I have with all this new to me technology. Super pleased and super impressed. I will not hesitate to use Hilltop Ford in the future!
Jessica J., from Yelp

"Easy and Hassle Free"

I had the salesperson Shawn Patton. I can genuinely say that she made our car buying experience easy and hassle free. She wasn't pushy at all and got us what what we wanted and more without the going back and forth that all the other dealerships do. Thank you so much for making our car buying experience quick, easy and hassle free. I would definitely recommend her to any first time buyers.
Norma A., from Yelp

"5-Stars Service"

We were looking for a truck and we visited so many places, and only at Ford Hilltop auto-mall we got an amazing 5-stars service! Luis Vasquez was the specialist that helped us on deciding for the car selected and he was beyond than incredible, all the knowledge he shared with us and so many honest recommendations, he and Sean ( the financial specialist) got us an amazing deal for our F150!!!! Important to mention that Before we got there we visited other famous site near them where the service was deplorable, and by seeing how the service was at Ford Hilltop auto-mall made us think how incredible they do their job!! thankssss a lot Ford Hilltop auto-mall!!
Monty C., from Yelp

"Best Experience"

I just bought my Maverick--it was a tough long wait but it was worth it!!!!! Thank you Hilltop Ford for honoring everything that I had coming from when I ordered. I want to personally thank my sales person Shawn Patton for all the help and patience. She didn't rush me or try to get me to buy things I didn't want. She spent the whole morning with me to make sure I understood everything. Since this was my first new purchase, I feel this was the best experience I could have!!!

If you ever need a vehicle, reach out to Shawn Patton at Hilltop Ford Richmond Ca
Mac H., from Yelp

"Very Attentive"

Your internet sales manager Trent Clevenger is amazing. He has been very attentive and responsive to all of my communications over the last several weeks while attempting to get the exact Bronco Sport that I wanted. And he came through! I am very happy with my purchase and with the overall experience at your location. I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Trent is easily the best person in the industry that I've had the privilege of interacting with over the last 15 or so years. He made my fiancé and I feel welcome and comfortable during the whole ordeal. So much so that when she is looking to get a new car we will be coming back to this location.
Phillip B., from Yelp

"Class Act"

This review is long overdue! But back in April of 2021 my man Raoul helped make a dream come true when he sold me my brand new Subaru BRZ! Raoul was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to help me purchase my car from the very first message i sent him. He was able to hold the car for me for a few days while I sorted out flights and a hotel as I was coming all the way out from Los Angeles to purchase the car. He's truly a class act and embodies everything a salesman should be and almost a year later I could not be happier with my car. Thank you to Raoul and everyone at Hilltop Ford for helping make this happen.
Alex C., from Yelp


Stopped by hilltop ford to check out a ranger I found online, Trent greeted us with a warm welcome. He was very helpful, efficient and had a great sense of humor. Would have trusted my sale with him, but unfortunately I was looking for a model they did not have in their inventory. Check out hilltop and ask for Trent for an honest salesman.
Annie C., from Yelp

"A+ Ford Dealership"

As we all know going to a car dealership can be a stressful experience because of high pressure sales, financing worries and long hours of negotiating. I have purchased at least half a dozen cars in my life time through different dealerships and for the first time I had a stress free experience at Michael Stead's Hilltop Ford Kia. It was the best dealership experience I have ever had. I ordered a 2021 Ford Bronco way back in February. Production delays pushed my deliver of my Bronco until December. I have finally taken delivery of the brand new Ford Bronco and I love the my brand new vehicle. Maria Ferro at Hilltop Ford Kia did a great job at communication and updating me about my order. Questions and emails I had sent to Maria were answered promptly. Not only the communication was excellent the purchase went as smooth as silk. Maria is an outstanding representative. Also a shout out to "B" at financing as he did an outstanding job as well. I would highly recommend purchasing your next car at Hilltop Ford Kia and hope that you have a great experience like I did. I am looking forward doing future business at Michael Stead's Hilltop Ford Kia as they have now gained a long time customer. A+ Ford dealership

"Gave Us The Best Deal"

It was a lovely day today. Checking out for my first car! John assisted me, my mom, and my friend. He is very welcoming to us and very clear on all the details about the information we had to know before we buy one. And gave us the best deal for our situation. Now, I can't wait to get my first car keys!
Enrico B., from Yelp

"Service Team is Very Professional"

The service team is very professional and helpful. Previously was dealing with a technical issue with my new car and the team (especially the Service Manager, Ryan) was very relentless in helping to get a fix from Ford. Just took in the car for a routine mileage inspection and had it back within a hour. Definitely would recommend checking them out if you are purchasing or need your car serviced.
Ryan M., from Yelp

"Very Transparent"

Luis and Jose were great to work with. They were very transparent about the pricing of my new Ford. I would recommend them to friends and family.
Samantha M., from Yelp

"Super Helpful"

Trent and Shawn were amazing, super helpful, and ensured we were buying the car we wanted. I wouldn't just recommend going to Hilltop Ford, I would suggest asking for either Trent or Shawn to assist with your buying needs!
Elvis H., from Yelp

"Listened to Every Detail"

I was very pleased with the help I received from the sales agent Annisha! I was browsing and looking. She greeted me with a smile. Was a very patient person and listened to every detail. She wasn't a pushy sales rep. She was able to answer all of my questions without any problems. Thanks for your help!
Brittany L., from Yelp

"True Care For Customers"

Martin L. is an outstanding Service Advisor - service with smile and true care for his customers; if you're looking for someone with exceptional customer service, he's your guy! I highly recommend him. I had a screw puncture in my tire and since I had 60K on my tires, I made the decision to replace all 4 tires. When I first spoke to Martin on the phone he was friendly, thorough and covered all the questions I had. Luckily they were able to accommodate me on the same day. I took my car in and although he was helping another customer, he excused himself politely and took a moment to introduce himself to let me know he'd be right with me. The check-in process was smooth and seamless. After a few hours, he called me to say that my rear brakes needed replacing (which I completely appreciated). Since I had the pre-paid maintenance (I HIGHLY recommend with any Ford purchase), the brakes were covered. Martin called me to let me know my car was ready. He explained all the paperwork, the service that was completed and I had inquired about a price match guarantee on my tires, which they were able to honor (thank you to the Service Manager). I had considered taking my car to a random tire place, but then I wouldn't have found out that I needed rear brakes and then I would've had an added out-of-pocket expense. As a long-time Ford owner, I've ALWAYS trusted the dealership for any of my maintenance work. My experience with Hilltop Ford is always top notch; and now that Martin is in the Service Department, he's definitely raised the bar! Thank you Martin! P.S. I asked Martin to save the screw that was in my tire so I could see it and he could have easily forgot that small detail, but he didn't. He proudly handed it to me at check-out! Kudos to Martin for remembering!

"The Only Dealership Service Department I Would Ever In Life Trust"

This review is for the Service Department and the real deal nice guys who run it. Holy Moly, where do I even begin? First of all, this is the ONLY dealership service department I would ever in life trust taking my truck to. We already had a good relationship with them since I had been taking my truck here for routine needs, OEM parts etc. But when the big motherload of transmission replacement came necessary, WILLIAM AND RYAN came through BIG TIME. These guys went above and beyond my expectations. They handled calling Ford in Detroit,MI directly with my needs, got business handled, and took excellent care of my baby. I am not going to lie any big purchase or big mechanical job makes me nervous when it's not my husband doing the work himself but this had to be done by Ford and was done in good hands. These guys are REAL, they're down to earth, straight shooters, and know the work they do and actually talk to you with real respect unlike other service departments with their memorized "it has to be done" take it or leave it attitude. If you're like me and your truck is your baby just know you can trust this place as long as these guys are running the show. Ryan and William, thank you SO much and please don't ever leave! You guys ROCK!!!

"5 Stars"

5 stars. We were in and out with a 2021 Bronco in less than an hour, Ray was our salesman and had everything finished over the phone and ready to sign. 100% would recommend this amazing atmosphere.
Tomi P., from Yelp

"Most Helpful and Transparent"

Yesterday 2/13/21 i purchased my first ever Vehicle and have to say 'B' was by far the most helpful and transparent salesman i encountered. From the moment i first inquired about a specific mustang to the moment i drove 6 hrs to purchase it. 'B' was very patient , and helpful with all the questions i had regarding the vehicle , its condition, and pricing. Very easy to work with and would definitely recommend him to anyone especially to a new buyer like myself. Thank you once again B and Hilltop Ford, for making my first time experience feel comfortable.
Ronnie P., from Yelp

"A Great Place To Buy A Car"

Hilltop Ford is a great place to buy a car. Ask for Ray he is a honest sales person. Ray looked after me I found me a great deal without applying any pressure or sales gimmick. Even down to the finances department who walked me through the process and answered all of my questions. Great experience will highly recommend going to Hilltop Ford.
D. Moseley M., from Yelp

"A Returning Customer"

Today I thought purchasing a car was going to be a long boring exhausting experience but I was wrong I came down to hilltop fort and soon as we walked on the lot we were agreed it by Ray who is one of the best Sale associate to ever make this experience extraordinarily amazing.

So if you're looking to purchase a new vehicle for whatever reasons I recommend go down to hilltop for ask for Ray he will give you the best experience that you could ever have When it comes to purchasing our leasing a vehicle.

Sincerely a very happy customer and a returning customer.

RoseMary Smith
Thank you Ray, again!

"All Your Questions Answered"

The car buying process is long & somewhat stressful. Wouldn't you love to have someone that has almost 40 years of experience under their belt that can make sure all your questions are answered? Luis is the Best he makes you feel so welcome and you know you're getting truly the best deal and to make sure of that Noel does all the financing footwork. These 2 were the greatest, our experience from start to finish was seamless & our family has a vehicle that we can fit comfortably in & love.
Paula H., from Yelp

"Excellent Sales Staff"

 bought my Ford Edge from this dealership in 2013, and they have serviced my vehicle since then. This is a great dealership with excellent sales and maintenance staff. They listen to my concerns, and their rates are fair.
I have dealt with other dealerships in the past, and Hilltop Ford is by far the best in my experience.
Gillian S., from Yelp

"Best Deal"

Our salesperson was Luis Vasquez and he did an exceptional job! He made sure we got the best deal for our trade in. Would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
Leni P., from Yelp


This is my second time buying a car from Hilltop Ford. It was literally the first dealer I went to. I'd had suck a pleasant experience my first time, I knew I'd be in good hands. My salesperson Jovi was phenomenal today. He made sure I was well taken care of and got exactly what I wanted. I literally had one foot out the door because it didn't look like it was going to happen today. Long story short, I love my 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid
Margarita B., from Yelp

"Finest Mechanic Shop"

Michael Stead's Hilltop Ford in Richmond is by far the finest mechanic shop I have ever been to. Their service, work, and ethics are unmatched. Their employees are very professional and informative. They go above and beyond to provide outstanding customer service. Ask for David Laughlin, he is an expert!
Yoav B., from Yelp

"Best Experience"

So this was by far the best experience I've ever had a a dealership. I had been looking for a specific Ford van for about 2 months. I was on car gurus and saw the exact van was available at hilltop Ford. I'm about 4 hours south so I knew I would be buying the van sight unseen and wanted as much information about it beforehand as it was a used vehicle. I have never had a dealer communicate with me the way hilltop did. One of their salesman, Jonathan, answered every one of my many questions for a week. He was so communicative that it made the prospect of buying a truck without seeing it totally fine. The customer service Jonathan gave me was excellent. When I finally made the decision to come down Jonathan made sure the van and paperwork were ready to go when I got there. I showed up late, an hour before they closed. Jonathan, Jose and the other finance guy( wish I got his name) all helped get everything finished. They never played any games and were the straightest shooters I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with in the car industry. If I lived closer to the bay I would buy all of my vehicles from these guys. Hit them up! You won't be disappointed!
John S., from Yelp

"Wonderful Dealership"

So much gratitude for this wonderful dealership!
My experience started out by cold-calling this dealership to check out their trucks.I had the pleasure of being connected with JC.I explained to JC I knew the exact truck I wanted & didn't want to deal with the back&forth of dealing with a car dealership.He was Amazing! He knows his trucks & he truly cares about taking care of people.As everyone knows,buying an automobile can be incredibly stressful & leave a person with their head spinning.This experience was anything but that!
Because of JC & his incredible personality,
knowledge of his product & true integrity,I drove away in my dream truck.A true asset to this dealership along with his manager Jose.Thank you JC.
Jeff M., from Yelp

Jason M., from Yelp

"Smooth Process"

My mom and I went to Ford Kia and were looking tenaciously for my first car. From the moment we came in it was good vibes. Sean and Maria helped us and made sure we got what we needed. We got to test drive and get the carfax letting us know all about the car. From there they made it a smooth process to get my new car! I love it and know where I'm going for any of my future car needs. I appreciate your team for all your help. Blessing to you all!

"Welcoming and friendly" 

I came to this dealership on Presidents' Day. I went  there with my dad to check out some cars. We had an amazing time. Joel Calderon was very welcoming and friendly to us. He made us feel great and took his time to show us around, he has a great personality and a lot of experience. We were so pleased that Joel was able to help us throughout the whole process. We ended up getting a car. He also even provided us with lunch which I thought it was very kind of him to offer, while we were waiting since that day was a very busy day. So if you end up going to this dealership look for Joel Calderon and Garnett they were wonderful. Happy with my new car.
