On May 9, I brought my Ford Edge (the second Edge I've owned) into Grappone Ford for an annual inspection and oil change. I have been a very long time customer of Grappone and always have good service experiences with the Service Department. However, my experience on May 9 was exceptional and that was due to my service advisor, Greg.
I have a son who serves in the US Navy and I have a "Navy Mom" license plate bracket that was a gift from my son. I wanted to put it on my car, but couldn't because the front of the car did not have an attachment for a top fastening license plate bracket. I mentioned it to Greg as I was checking in and he came outside to look at it with me. As we looked at it, Greg wasn't sure if it could be solved. I told him that that was alright and that I would just put the bracket on the back of the car and remove the other bracket I had on there as a solution.
After we went inside, Greg and I were talking about the keyless entry system and I was telling him that I can never remember the code and have to look it up. Within 2 minutes, Greg and I were back outside and he helped me enter a new code that I will remember.
When I came back to pick up my car at the end of the day, all of the work had been done and as a wonderful surprise, my Navy Mom license plate bracket was proudly displayed on the front of my car - which was backed into its parking space so all could see it.
To some people, it may seem like a small thing but to me, it was really important. My husband and I could not come up with a solution that would allow me to have both license plate brackets on my car - but Greg did! And I can proudly show my Navy pride!
Thank you to Greg and the other Grappone staff, including the mechanics/technicians, who made that happen!
