Buy a New or Used Car from a Dealership That Puts You First

When it comes to buying a new or used car, it takes more than having access to a dealership that has a large inventory. You want access to inventories that are diverse and varied in models, price, and body styles. It's the only way to ensure that you're making the most informed buying decision. That's where McGrath Ford can help! We have the most diverse inventory you will ever find near Cedar Rapids. We've assembled a wide range of new Ford models from a lineup that is impressive as usual by the manufacturer. And our used car inventory has models that are not only popular and diverse but also affordable. How can we help you?

Nowadays, with some establishments, it seems as though customer service has taken a back seat for ensuring that expectations are met. That is something you will never find at McGrath Ford. Our sales professionals are highly committed to making sure you're not only satisfied with your experience but also go further by providing you with as much information as needed to make the best decision. Buying a new or used car around Hiawatha is an investment. As such, you deserve to have professionals who have the skill and knowledge to provide enriching details about financing. Plus, our dealership offers factory-certified service and genuine OEM parts to keep your ride running like new.
