 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The best of the best were recognized tonight as Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) presents its highest honor for customer satisfaction -- the "Chairman's Award" -- to the top 2 percent of its dealers.
 "You are being honored because, according to your customers, you have demonstrated your commitment to customer satisfaction in an exemplary fashion," Ford Chairman Harold A. Poling told dealers and Ford executives gathered for the awards ceremony. "That's truly exceptional performance."
 The coveted Chairman's Award is presented annually to a select group of the company's 5,340 Ford, Lincoln-Mercury and heavy truck dealerships that receive exceptionally high marks on customer satisfaction surveys. Customers rate dealers in all areas of sales, service, technical proficiency and convenience.

 "The Chairman's Award recognizes the top echelon among Ford's dealers," Poling said. "It encourages all dealers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement in every aspect of their relationship with their customers. And, tonight, we celebrate the achievements of 134 of the very best in the business."
 This year, the award was given to 91 Ford, 38 Lincoln-Mercury and five heavy truck dealers. Four dealers have received the award every year since the program began in 1985.
