Centennial Auto Center has three lines of product situated at 6500 Centennial Center Blvd. in the northwest valley.
With Buick, GMC and Mazda lines, new General Manager Tim Donnelly is convinced the location has cars and trucks for every possible budget under one roof.
“We have new and used cars along with the ability to repair almost any vehicle, too,” said Donnelly, who first entered the car business in Las Vegas with his father, Dick, working as a lot boy in the 1970s. “From cars priced as low as $2,995 all the way to a 2012 GMC Yukon Denali, this location has everything.”
Donnelly said that even though many dealerships reported lower sales figures in the first few weeks of January, Centennial Auto Center enjoyed great results last weekend.
“Our Mazda sales are increasing rapidly with the better product along with the incentives and warranties now available,” Donnelly said. “For instance, the 2012 Mazda3 gets 40 miles to the gallon and can now be leased for only $99 a month. In fact, I’d rate the Mazda above any compact vehicle on the market now.”
Donnelly also praised the addition of two automobile experts who recently joined the dealerships.
“We added some very talented personnel in Internet Manager O.J. Dawoodi and General Sales Manager Scott Peters. Together, O.J. and Scott bring with them immense experience as well as great customers service. We feel that the two of them will also bring strong customer bases.”
Donnelly said another key to the dealership’s success is longtime service executive Bill Buckley, who has been with Super Store Auto Group for several years.
“Everyone with a vehicle, no matter the brand, needs a good service department,” Donnelly said, “and I cannot think of a better name in the industry than Bill Buckley. We have people all over the valley that bring their car here for service specifically because of Bill. There is nobody better in the business than he is.”
