Reviews on Brown Motors

Brown Motors is where we leased our Lincoln SUV.  The sales people were able to answer all our questions, and did not pressure us to make any decisions (we weren't 100% sure we wanted to get a new car at the time, but decided to go for it).  

They were able to do all the complicated paperwork involved with an out-of-state lease, which was helpful.  

When you buy/lease a new Lincoln, you get free oil changes every 6 months.  We got an oil change, and received a complimentary car wash.  The waiting rooms have TV's, are clean, and have juice boxes and water for guests.

I would recommend buying/leasing a car at Brown Motors, or getting service there.
