It so surprise me how everything when so well while I was buying my new truck. And how helpful Woody was going over everything and telling us how to use it and what it is for. I never had a salesman take the time to go over everything and the dealership was just amazing.

WoodyI just wanted to thank you. I picked up my new(used) F-250 in Columbia and it was just like you described it, the transaction went off without a hitch. It was a pleasure doing business with a professional. Bob Whitley
Kay And I had a great time with you while purchasing our new Chrysler 300. It is a pleasure to deal with someone that is more interested in being truthfull about what they are telling you rather than just telling you what you need to here so they can make a sale. Thank you for making our purchase so easy with no problems. We treasure you and Holly,s personal friendship. Hope you guy,s have a great trip. Thanks, Charles Dail
Thanks for your help with the purchase of our new truck. You and Matt were friendly and helpful. We appreciate the facts that you were concerned for our desires but not pushy, and that you let us have a truck overnight. This allowed us to see if we really thought it met our needs. We left feeling like real people instead of a "sale". We will highly recommend you and Akins to anyone we know who is shopping for a new vehicle.

Woody, Just want to say thank you for taking care of us on your day off. On the way up to Winder, my mom asked why in the world would I drive this far for a vehicle. I told her we had talked about a 2010 back in November, and I liked that you didn’t use all those crazy sales tactics that dealerships around Augusta are notorious for. On our way home, she called my dad and told him you were the nicest salesman she’d ever talked to. You led us to the dealership, you led us back home, and even washed the windows and put gas in the tank. It is no wonder your office is filled with awards. Thanks again for a great buying experience. We will definitely make that drive again. : ) -Summer
Mr. Sowder, down -to- earth personality is not
what I expected at a dealership. I wasn't pressured
in my buying experience at all! You gave me very detailed
information about all the vehicles I had my eye
on. If salesman could practice just half of these
attributes to their customers like "Woody" did, they
would banish the stereotype of the "Pesky salesman'
Customers like honesty.......A++++ for Woody!!
Woody, thank you for making our purchase of this vehicle pain free. It was great doing business with you and you stafff. Everyone was must kind and polite. I will for sure recommend you to other people.

Woody, I want to thank you and your team for your “Great Customer Service and Attitude”. It was very gratifying to get a person that listens to the customer even when “we were not speaking”. You went above and beyond to understand our needs and wants. My husband and I researched endlessly for a better deal and better customer service and we could not find it anywhere else. I can see why you have been successful in your career. I do have a small request. I left my sunglasses in my old car. Do you mind getting those out for me and I will pick them up with our next follow-up. Once more I truly appreciate you diligence of making our searching and purchasing of our car a great memory.
With appreciation, Lupe and James Kelly

Woody, from my first phone contact, I have been highly impressed with the friendly and courtesy of all the staff. You did an excellent job of answering all questions and ensuring that I got exactly what I wanted. Thanks Woody!!!!! also today's experience at your parts dept. was an absolute joy. Brain is Great at his job (will be getting extra NECESSARY goodies installed tomorrow) again a big THANK YOU Woody !!! sam bender
Hello Woody, I want to thank you for courtesy and professionalism with my son and me. This was my son's first experience purchasing a vehicle and I have been doing it for years. You were very knowledgeable and made this car buying experience a pleasure, and that is usually difficult for me to say when I have purchased vehicles in the past from other dealerships. Akins Dodge was worth the drive and I can honestly say my son absolutely loves his 2011 Dodge Charger. We will definitely come back when the time comes to review/purchase a new vehicle. Thanks again for you patience, courtesy, and professionalism.
Hi Woody. I will certainly pass on your name to anyone and everyone I know.. I had a great experience with you and your dealership.
I absolutely LOVE the Rubi and couldn’t be more pleased. It handled a little squirrely on the road when I left the dealership. But I’ve had lift kits with big tires before, and know the tire pressure makes a HUGE difference in handling, especially at highway speed. When I picked it up it had about 36 psi. I went up then down as I took the back roads home (thru Elijay), and finally settled on around 28 psi for the best handling at speed. Interestingly, when I got home, I searched on some Wrangler JK forums, and those running the 35’s are running 26-30 psi for the best ride, which is right where I settled.
I can’t wait to start tricking it out, and get some real off road miles under my belt.

I would like to say we are very pleased with our new ride, we are a little sad to see the black beast F-150 leave..but know that all good things most come to an end. The F-150 we bought has been a joy and the color is very complimentary to our personalities and I know we will gets lots of good use out of it...towing our boat & family vacations and so forth. Tim as for you, your professionalism from the beginning to the end & after the sale is why we have returned only to deal with you. I've not delt with anyone else and only ask for you thats why I've boughten four Ford vehicles from you and only you. You have earned my trust and the intergrity that Akins stands for as well. We have over the years recommended friends and Dunwoody customers to you because of the prompt service and quality assurance that is offered at Akins. I do take into account when I bought my last car how I was not happy with some options that where not available, and I drove the new Taurus for the weekend and you still found a loaded Ford 500 in the same color but with more options and I was still able to trade out, because you wanted me to be completely satisfied with my new purchase. After I got the Ford 500 I was so happy because I got all I wanted and more. I expect only the best and deserve to have a sales person who wants the same for me. I would like to "Thank You" again for all you have done and let you know I will return sometime in the future for a new purchase on a Ford Taurus...my dream car! So look for me and my family to return, so don't go anywhere because you are not replaceable. Have a great summer!

Doing business with Akins Ford and having Mr. Woody Sowder as a Sales Representative was a nice and painless experience. My husband and I were hesitating at first to contact Mr. Sowder about buying a vehicle but after contacting him he told us to complete the application. The next day Mr. Sowder took the time out of his busy schedule to contact my husband to make sure we had completed the application which is kind of unusual. This let us know that he was really interested in helping us in buying a vehicle. I felt really at ease after we received his call. Mr. Sowder made the process of buying our vehicle so easy that I was almost afraid to believe it. Once we completed the application to finance the vehicle, it was pretty much a done deal. Mr. Sowder made sure he got us the best deal possible and we appreciate that. I would recommend anyone to go to Akins Ford in Wynder, GA and make sure they have Mr. Woody Sowder as their Sales Representative.

Woody, Thanks for the great service ...We love the car...I will be sure to send some folks your way...I have always heard that Akins was the place to trade....Now I can tell folks about my visit...And trust me I know lots of folks...Thanks again...
Just a short note to once again thank you for everything you did to make it possible for us to buy Madison her dream vehicle!! And a special thanks to Tim Smith for coordinating everything so perfectly. The delivery was right on time and everything went as smooth as silk. I only wish the two of you could have seen Madison's face when she walked out of the building and saw all of her friends sitting in the back of the red beauty...proof once again that a picture is worth a thousand words!!!! You guys are absolutely GREAT and I only hope that someday I can find a way to return the favor.
Woody, I wanted to take the time to let you and everyone at Akins know how happy we are and grateful for the superior customer service we recieved during the purchase of our vehicle from you. As as active duty soldier on the road 24 days a month doing the nations business, you and your team made it possible to buy, my car "over the phone" which is not easy. My borther in law purchased from you 10 times before and recommended you. All I can say is that his outstanding recommendation was still not enough compared to what you deserve. I stand ready to personally recommend your dealership to anyone that would like a reference. Thanks again. What you did made my life so much easier and I am forever grateful.

Tim Smith was the salesman that sold me two trucks last week and his customer service was excellence. His knowledge of the units I purchased and expertise in handling the entire process was by far the best I have seen in many years. The group that installed the flatbed on my F-350 did a great job as well. Please conmmend Tim and the bed installers for the service they provided. So many company employees do not understand what the term "customer service" truly means. The employees that I came in contact with during this process were excellent reps for your company.
On July 30th I bought a great preowned 2008 Honda Civic from Chuck Singer. The car is wonderful and so is Akins Ford and its staff.
