About Us


Springfield Garage has remained in the same family since it opened as a Rover dealership in 1960. In 1987 we changed to Ford and now sell over 500 new and used cars each year. Whether you choose a new or a used car, the buying experience with Springfield Garage is different from many dealers, because we are not part of a large group or plc we do things differently. Our customers tell us that their buying experience with us is pressure free and enjoyable; we do not expect everyone to make their mind up about a car immediately. We will not repeatedly ring you up after your visit and we do not use sales gimmicks to attract business. We will offer you finance but only if you want it; how you pay for your purchase is up to you. The quality of the cars we sell and the keen prices we offer attract customers to us – our aftersales service keeps them coming back for their next car. 

In 2011 we opened our new display site next door to our original dealership. Our new site holds a large range of new and used Fords to provide greater variety when looking at specifications and colours. We also have access to thousands of new car in the Ford network and in stock with Ford Motor Company themselves.  Our extensive used car stock includes Ford Direct cars – nearly new cars prepared to the highest standard by Ford Motor Company, often with sought after factory options fitted. All Ford Direct cars come with 2 years unlimited mileage warranty and AA cover, but if we don’t have the used car you want, we can find it for you on our Ford stock locator.
