  • Jim Worden
    Sales Consultant
    (866) 792-6070

    What our customers are saying about Jim:

    "My son recently took delivery of a 2014 Ford Focus ST from Jim Worden. Since we live a few hours away from the dealership, we were concerned that if someone forgot to dot an 'i' or cross a 't' that we'd be at the dealership until late in the evening - but this was not the case. I'm happy to report that Jim kept in constant contact with us while the vehicle was being prepped for delivery, he made sure that he had all the paperwork completed when we arrived, and when all was done, we spent less than fifteen minutes sitting at a desk signing required documents. Everything was letter-perfect when we arrived and this allowed Jim time to review the functionality of the Focus with our son, the proud owner of a new ST. The entire experience was professional, and stress free. Thanks to Jim for a job well done and to all the folks at Don's who made this delivery such a pleasant experience."
