Jacqueline, a Bill Brown Ford customer, purchased a new Rapid Red 2022 Ford Explorer from sales consultant Jeff Spooner this holiday season. Jacqueline had this to say about her experience: “If you’re buying a Ford, go see Jeff at Bill Brown in Livonia! You won’t be disappointed. For over ten years, he has been patiently helping me. I changed my mind a million times and asked him a thousand questions, and I never felt like I was bothering him!”
