Tons of potential buyers including young drivers came out in April to test drive Ford vehicles, including the 2017 Ford Escape, which was a popular choice thanks to its SYNC 3 capability and various driver assist technologies. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available as well as features like the Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control with Brake Support, and Parking Assist, the Ford Escape is the perfect choice for families with new drivers.
The Escape’s SYNC 3 with voice recognition lets you connect your phone through the infotainment system and control it with your voice, so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. If you have a teen driver, you know the fear of them texting while driving, and this is the perfect way to curb it.
We hope to see a lot more test drivers at Lees Summit West on May 6th! It’s YOUR chance to test drive a Ford Escape as well! For more information about hosting a Drive 4UR School event for your school, or to learn more about the Ford Escape, call us today at Bob Sight Ford!
Our employee spotlight this month shines on our parts manager, Adam Link! A little background on Adam: He’s originally from these “parts” and has resided in the greater Kansas City area his entire life. He grew up in Lake Lotawana and Blue Springs, MO, and has worked at Bob Sight Ford for pretty much his entire adult life. He started out as a parts driver before becoming a parts counterperson, and then on to his current position as parts manager. As a parts manager, his responsibilities encompass all things parts related. He is responsible for ordering, shipping, receiving, selling, and returning parts.
Adam’s goals as parts manager are very simple – he strives to provide the best service to his customers and help them with their automotive needs. Adam says, “being able to have some fun while also helping customers at the same time” is what makes him so passionate about his job and why he enjoys his line of work.
When asked what he would consider to be his dream car, Adam proves he’s also got great taste. “There’s too many to pick just one, but right now I’m in love with the 1967 Toyota 2000 GT.” It may not be a Ford, but we can’t argue with that classic!
Some other interesting facts about Adam is that he has a self-described obsession with watching blacksmithing and lockpicking videos (it’s a thing – check it out!). He’s also a sucker for Ethiopian pour-over coffees.
When asked who he would want to play him in a movie about his life, he said Paul Sheer because of his signature teeth gap.
Next time you’re in need of a part, come over to Bob Sight Ford and say hello to Adam Link!
