Ford Ranked Above Average In 2022 Mexico Customer Service Study

As Ford Authority reported back in March, Ford dealers ranked below average on J.D. Power’s 2022 U.S. Customer Service Index (CSI) Study. However, Blue Oval dealers south of the border faired much better in the newly-released 2022 Mexico Customer Service Index-Long-Term (CSI-LT) Study, ranking above the industry average and a number of key rivals as well.

In the new study, Ford scored an 838 out of a possible 1,000 points, which ranks it behind first-place Toyota (865), BMW (861), Mazda (857), Honda (855), Volkswagen (854), Chevrolet (853), and Audi (847), but above the industry average of 836, as well as Hyundai (830), Jeep (823), Nissan (822), Kia (821), Dodge (820), Renault (794), and SEAT (794).

The J.D. Power 2022 Mexico Customer Service Index-Long-Term Study provides a comprehensive analysis of the service experience among owners of three- to 12-year-old vehicles. It evaluates customer satisfaction with their dealer or non-dealer service center by examining five key measures – service quality, service advisor, service initiation, service facility, and vehicle pick-up.

This year’s study is based on the evaluations of 3,422 interviews with new- and used-vehicle owners in Mexico about their three- to 12-year-old vehicles. The study was fielded from March through May 2022. Overall, the study found that dealer service visits have increase to near pre-pandemic levels, while dealer service continues to outperform that of non-dealers. However, a general lack of loyalty means that there is plenty of opportunity avilable for the taking, too.

“The service business was hard hit by the pandemic, but both authorized dealers and independent service shops have seen visits and revenue-per-visit increase,” said Gerardo Gomez, senior director and country manager at J.D. Power de Mexico. “While satisfaction maintains a steady upward trend, service providers must not let higher revenues prompt them to lose sight of the importance of satisfying their customers.”

    We’ve had our 2018 Titanium V6 EDGE in for Scheduled OIL Change’s on a PLAN we PAID $680.00 for 🤷‍♂️ 👀, That did the BASIC OIL Service, and A Set Of Wiper Blades, THAT’S IT!!! And “2” TIMES I handed the Key’s back to the Service Writer and Said You Haven’t finished ALL the Things that the Technician Marked off on this Work Order??? He said What was Missed??? And I said, Have the EXPERT FIGURE IT OUT!!!!! I’ll Be Looking at NEW TRUCKS on your Lot. That was Of Course 3 Years Ago…. They Ain’t got No TRUCKS on the Lot Now Day’s. That said, The Dealerships Need Some work on their Servicing Practice’s. Then I “PAID” to have the Antifreeze Flushed to the NEW “POAT” Stuff and Had to Take it Back to be Performed “AGAIN” due to the POOR JOB done on that PAID FOR SERVICE. $179.00 + TAX. Just a PISS POOR Experience to say the Least!!! Comon FORD. You know the THING????
