I am so proud of my new RED C-Max from Appel Ford- Mercury in Brenham, TX. Mike Leonard got me just what I wanted, plus. The C-Max being new to the Ford line up, they searched to get me everything on my "wish" list. I am so excited about my hybrid- and the results I have already seen and it has been only 2 days. My paperwork was ready when I arrived, details were explained and I felt no pressure at any time. This is my first hybrid so I had a lot of questions and they answered them all. Mike set up the "Sink My Ride" so I was ready to go, even received two phone calls during his comprehensive demonstration. I cannot believe how many people have already stopped me to take a look and all said "Wow”. I am proud to be driving a Ford. So this is another happy transaction for me with the Appel Ford dealership in Brenham.

Thank you Mike!
I have been buying cars for 35 years and this experience at Appel Ford was by far the best!
I am sure this will not be my last Appel Ford!!
Mr. and Mrs. Cain
Thank you Mike.
This was the easiest vehicle purchase we have ever experienced. Typically we dread going to car dealerships, but our experience with Mike Leonard at Appel Ford was great; so great that we will be back for future vehicle purchases.
Bruce and Cindy of Spring
Thanks for all your help with the van. That was probably the easiest car
buying experience I've had. As soon as I get it outfitted for our first
road trip, I'll send you a picture with our "golden" passengers.
We are very pleased with the vehicle. It has exceeded all our expectations, being a used vehicle. The biggest thing that we appreciate is the courteous treatment before, during, and after the sale. The negotiating process was fair and straight-forward. We didn't feel like we were being pushed/forced into the deal or being fed bad or incorrect information on the vehicle history and current condition. Having dealt with many car salesmen, Mike does not fit the typical stereotype and I think that I can speak for both, my wife and I, when I say that we will be starting out at Appel Ford for our future vehicle needs. Having an honest, knowledgeable salesman that gives you the facts and is a straight shooter helps you make the best informed decision and that is what you get when you deal with Mike.
Thank you again for your service.
Andrew & Kimberley Howell
Thank You Mike,
You were wonderful and easy to work with , and you took very good care of me and I greatly appreciate your services!
I love my Fusion Mike! Thank you so much for your help during a very
difficult time. I don't know what I would have done without your help when
my car broke down. You truly go above and beyond to help people.
Peggy L. Rybarski
Thank you for following up. We are very glad that we decided to make the hour long trip from Houston to visit your dealership. Not only was the price more than fair, but the experience was excellent as well. Thank you for being so courteous and taking the time to stay late to make the deal.
It's good to know that there are still some very honest and kind car dealers left out there. Take care and please let your general manager know that we were more than pleased with the way you handled everything for us.
Michael and Amanda
Thanks for making our car buying experience so simple and straightforward!
Sara was thrilled to get her Ford Focus and just loves it. We’ll definitely come to Appel Ford first for our next vehicle purchase!
College Station, TX
Happy New Year!
Debbie and I would like to thank you, once again, for your great assistance in getting the 2012 Ford Fusion with the moon roof, the sync, the nav system, the blind spot assist and backup/parking - all the bells and whistles we wanted! WE LOVE IT!!! This is the fourth vehicle we have purchased from Appel, the third from you. You make it a pleasure to do business with Appel. You are so helpful in allowing us to question via email, narrowing down what we are interested in, and the finance options. When we came into test drive, even though you had a college graduation that day, you made arrangements for us. Frank, in finance, answered any and all questions and was very helpful; in fact everyone we have dealt with at the dealership could not have been nicer.
You have become a friend. We appreciate you, your friendship and the great job you do in putting us into the perfect vehicle.
Thank You, again!
Carla and Debbie
When shopping for a new truck at AppleFord with Mike Leonard, I felt very comfortable.
I received great hospitality and a hometown friendliness that is unmatched by any other dealer.
Mr Leonard made sure that we had seen all that we needed to before making a quick and easy
deal by understanding my position. Thank you AppleFord and Mike Leonard for the great experience.
From Weimar Tx
It was a breeze working with Mike Leonard at Appel Ford in Brenham. Because they didn't have the particular truck on the lot, Mike spent several hours locating one.
He was straightforward about the price and there was no haggling, which made my experience pleasant. After the truck was delivered, he spent about an hour
with me to show me how everything worked. I will definitely go back to purchase my next vehicle from him.
I just want to thank you again for the pleasant buying experience of my truck! It was great!! You addressed all my questions and showed me all the "gadgets", plus helped me sync my phone to the truck!! Your customer service was excellent and, be sure I will be telling everyone about my wonderful experience using you and Appel Ford.
Thank you for all you did for us. It is nice to know a man's word is still gold. We sure like the truck.
I hope you can find us a car. Our son's car is fading fast. We'll see you in October.
Artie & Tasa
Good Morning Mike,
Just a note to thank you so much for your help and concern after our F350 King Ranch was stolen in Port Aransas on Feb 1st.
With no truck and a 5th wheel to try and get home to Canada, we had all but lost hope, until we met you......
You restored our faith in Human Kind, just to know that there are people like you who are prepared to go above and beyond for the customer is so encouraging. Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou.
We got home and the import worked fine, the insurance is another matter and an ongoing saga.We hope to see that finished up in the next couple of weeks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our very best wishes
Mike and Nikki O'Hara
Thank you so much!
We are definitely enjoying our NEW BEAUTIFUL TRUCK! WOW, it is so nice! Everyone we met there was AWESOME and very helpful! It has been a total pleasure to deal with you and Appel Ford in purchasing our new truck! Thank you so much, Mike!
Sandy & Michael Louth
My overall experience -
I bought a used 2007 Santa Fe from Appel Ford and my experience was really great. All the staff from General Manager to Front desk were very nice people, courteous and professional.
Mike (Leonard) is very hard working sales professional. I have realized that professionalism from a dealership has started to become a very important factor in your car buying experience.
Living in Houston, I have really seen some very questionable dealership(s). This dealership puts you at ease and provides a very comforting and honest car buying experience.
My hour drive from Houston to Brenham was worth it. Two thumbs....all the way...UP.
I have been buying my wife a new car every 3-5 years since 1983.
Now she is mad because I didn’t buy her THIS CAR in 1983.
She loves it.
This is the first car that she has liked this much that I can remember.
Thanks for your help in selecting this car for her.
We have to leave the blinds open so she can see it.
Gay and I enjoyed meeting and buying the Escape from you. That was the by far the best car buying experience we’ve had. I had done plenty of research before contacting you and I appreciate getting fair prices over the internet for several Escapes. Deal was done before we ever set foot in the door. Then, that deal never waivered throughout. There was no 2nd team, 3rd team, good cop - bad cop, and Guido never showed up at the last minute to “close” the deal. We’ll definitely buy our next vehicle, probably a PU, from you. Might be a few years but we’ll be back.
MIKE, Thanks for everything you did for my wife and I. I have already received many thumbs up and compliments on the truck.
Just wanted you to know how much we appreciate everything you did even above and beyond what your job calls for.
Kenny & Patrica Bengston
Mike, Thank you for your service.
I love my 2004 Dodge truck. The only problem was the cowboy bumper. It was really too heavy .
Changed to stock bumper and the truck front came up almost 2" . It drives great.
Diesel mileage was not too good until computer was program with a mileage update. Now getting 19+.
Karen and I were so lucky to find your Dealership on the internet and to meet you.
You made us feel right at home. Thanks for the extra cards. We will be sure and give our friends
one of your cards and tell them to talk to you. Maybe one day we can come back your direction to see
you and go eat at Purwells. Our treat.
Your new Friends,
Ray And Karen Lowe
After receiving bad service at a Major Dealership in Houston, I came back to Appel.
Mike Leonard was so helpful and answered all my questions in a timely matter.
Appel's Associates went out of their way to make the buying experience enjoyable.
I will be a returning customer at Appel in the future.
We would like to thank you for putting the pleasure back into purchasing a vehicle. We were looking for a 2007 or 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac with low mileage at a reasonable price. We wanted one comparable to the 2001 Sport Trac we had as far as amenities were concerned.
After scouring the Internet for nearly a month, Appel Ford was the place that had such a vehicle. The back and forth via e-mail and the Internet between us in regards to the vehicle was much appreciated being we live in Spring, TX. We felt it was worth a trip to Brenham, but realized we could be wasting a trip if the vehicle wasn't as you said and advertised. We dreaded the process of haggling for a vehicle. Back and forth, we offer, you counter-offer. Oh, how we didn't want to go through all that nonsense.
You provided us with any information we requested on the vehicle and we did our homework through Consumer Reports in regards to what the vehicle should be purchased for. You surpassed that. The purchase price, after our trade-in (which was extremely reasonable), was below their recommended price. The 2008 Sport Trac we purchased was in excellent condition. We want to thank you for the extras you and Appel were willing to do for us. Thank you very much.
We've had the vehicle about three weeks and must say we are not disappointed at all. We really liked our 2001 Sport Trac, but the improvements Ford has made since then are impressive. We plan on keeping the 2008 for some time.
Mike, you were a pleasure to work with, both over the Internet and in-person. We have already recommended you to a couple of our friends. There's something about working with folks in a small community. Thanks for treating us like human beings that have intelligence.
Our best to you and the future of Appel Ford.
Joel & Jackie Tietjens
Mike is the no-nonsense salesman that every car buyer hopes to get. He listened to what I wanted, answered my questions, and didn't try to talk me into something I didn't need. He understands that a satisfied customer is a repeat customer and really showed that on our deal.
The next time I need a new vehicle I'll be giving Mike a call.
Mike, I enjoyed doing business with you. The make-ready did a fantastic job on getting the car ready even as late as it was.
And yes I am enjoying the Mustang as shown below.
New Ulm, Tx
I had a great experience at Appel Ford. I explained to Mike what I was looking for and what I could do financially and he found me exactly what I needed.
I appreciated the stress free, no pressure atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. I will come back next time I am needing a car.
Thanks a lot for the excellent customer service.
My Mother absolutely loves her 2007 Ford Sports Trac.
The delivery date a day before Mother Days, one word “PERFECT”.
I look forward to doing business with you and Appel Ford Mercury in the near Future.
Thanks again for delivering what was promised.
Los Angeles, Ca
Thanks for working with us for the lady to get her dream car. You were not pushy and we were not pressured into buying. We enjoy the fast service and communication with you and were not left waiting. The Solstice is the talk of the town here in San Antonio,TX. We look forward to driving it everyday.
Jesse & Irenia
We were looking for a well maintained used Ford Crew cab with very specific equipment requirements. After scouring through all our local dealerships here in the Amarillo Texas area, as well as online advertisements, we found a 2005 Ford 250 long bed through the Apple Ford dealership website. Mike Leonard was great to work with as he went extra lengths in ensuring us the truck advertised online was the vehicle we were about to purchase. Additionally he set up a driver to deliver the truck from Brenham Texas to Amarillo with a driver who was very professional and courteous. I highly recommend Mike and Appel Ford for any truck needs in the future.
Kotara and Sons
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed meeting you and thank you for making buying a truck enjoyable again. Even though we didn’t find what I wanted the first day, you didn’t give up and later found the truck I wanted. I enjoy driving it everyday and thank the Lord for it. I look forward to working with you again when its time to buy my wife a new vehicle.
Thanks and keep up the good work!
Frank, Kristi, Katy and Charlie
This is the third vehicle we have purchased from Appel Ford. We appreciate the professionalism and courteousness of our salesman, Mike Leonard. He went the extra mile to locate and get the vehicle we wanted. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Appel Ford.
Jason & Donna Alexander
Thanks for the pictures, they're great. We're still as excited about the truck now as the day we bought it. After seeing Ford's ad we stopped in to see if we could get lucky. Everything had to be just right for me to really buy a new truck. Well to my surprise (maybe not yours) everything was- you had one I wanted, the price really was that good, the trade-in was good, and financing was easy and at the right rate. Of course you and your team were a pleasure to work with, making the whole experience wonderful. Buying a new vehicle is supposed to be fun and it was. Believe me I'm telling everyone where I got it. Thanks again, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
Bart Block and Family
Thank you so very much for taking care of us this evening and making our car
buying such a pleasant experience.
You are truly a refreshing thing called CAR SALESMAN.........wish they were all
like you! Dealing with you and the folks at Appel Ford just might change our minds about salesmen.
Thanks ,Thanks, Thanks,
