Phil Waterford does not want to take for granted the good things that the Good Lord has already blessed his dealership with. When you plant a seed there is typically a harvest. The harvest that Manteca Ford has received has been abundant. “All of our needs have been met and it’s truly an honor to give back to our community and to humanity”. A lot of people don’t realize the impact of conducting business in your own city and community. When you conduct business in Manteca the tax dollars stay in the city and help offset many expenses, such as retention of valuable resources, police, fire, education, etc. If you buy outside of the community, those tax dollars go to the city in which you make your purchase. An automobile purchase is probably the second biggest investment that someone will ever make in their lifetime. Subsequently, the tax revenue is higher than most purchases. The city of Manteca only has three new car dealerships left that have been able to get through these tough times that have been particularly rough on auto dealerships. All of our dealers in town are competitive and will do whatever they can to earn your business.

Stop by Phil Waterford’s Manteca Ford & Exotic High Line and look at their completely renovated showroom, offices and customer waiting area. The main showroom now has a sports feel with authentic memorabilia, and an actual hardwood floor like you would find on a professional basketball court. The customer waiting area has been remodeled with new floors, a kitchenette, flat screen TVs and comfortable seating. All of the supplies for the renovation of the dealership came from local merchants, including B.R. Funsten, OSH, Home Depot, Costco, American Furniture, Wal-Mart, Economy Signs, K-Mart and Walgreens. We want to keep our spending in our community and encourage all of our employees to do the same.
