Ford Dealerships

I dunno if this has been brought up before, but what does everyone think of the styling of Ford dealerships?

What i mean is, that if you look at most of the Holden dealerships they seem to be very well presented and look fairly modern. Whereas if you go to Ford, the buildings look very old and shabby and don't look as classy as Holden dealers.

What do you guys think? Does it have much of an impact on you? Should Ford do something about it?

Some older ones do look a bit shabby but there are quite a few that have or are about to undergo renovations. Also the addition of FPV sales to dealerships will add new looks to the dealerships too.

Might have something to do with the current state of relative profit/loss shown by both companies.

Ford hasn't been able to afford much besides Barra/Raptor.

Hopefully the success of BA will change that in the near future.

It's shameful to see that Hyundai has better presented showrooms

I saw the best looking Ford dealer when I was on a bus going in to Sydney (from Melbourne) recently. It had plush green inviting grass, a well presented car yard and a nice looking building.

That has got to be the best Ford dealer I have EVER seen.

Bryan Byrt Ford in QLD would have to be the best presented Ford Dealership in QLD, Q Ford, Denmac, Metro, Southside and Byrne are all a bit shabby.
