The all-new Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of advanced safety technologies has your back!

In the past, if you wanted to get a new Ford model with advanced standard safety features, you needed to get a vehicle with trims that were eligible for the Ford Safe and Smart package. Even then, the Safe and Smart packages were not the same across the lineup.

Since advanced safety technologies have quickly become coveted amenities on cars, Ford is working hard to make their features alike across the lineup. They've done this by creating the Ford Co-Pilot360™ package, and in doing so have made the most advanced suite of driver assistance features. If you want added…

The arrival of the "all-new" 2019 Ford Ranger is upon us, and at Ben Davis Ford Inc. we cannot wait to get this vehicle back at our dealership!

Ford thankfully decided it was time to bring this coveted pickup back to the North American market, and while it has the same name as previous generations, it's rocking an all new look and is…

How to Protect Yourself from Flood-Damaged Cars That Have Been Title-Washed

600 × 400

You would never buy a used car with flood damage. That would be like paying for a pile of rust. Fortunately, Auburn was nowhere near the extensive flooding that occurred last week during Hurricane Harvey, so the cars for sale locally are safe... right?

Not necessarily, says Kelley Blue Book. Unscrupulous sellers will likely send damaged cars to other states in an attempt to unload them on unsuspecting shoppers. Through either outright avoidance—the cars were uninsured and repaired by uncertified mechanics who didn't report the damage—or through a process called title washing, many...
