Huntington Chevrolet is open for business and customers can expect a mix of new and old.

Dealer Principal Nich-olas Pannos and General Manager Art Georgion took over the dealership on March 8.

While the dealership has a new name – it was formerly known as Pace Chevrolet – it will continue to sell new Chevrolet models, plus used models from various manufacturers.

A new policy at Huntington Chevrolet is its free lifetime powertrain warranty.

“It’s something we offer on virtually every vehicle that’s purchased here,” states Georgion, who says it should bolster buyers’ confidence when purchasing used vehicles.

In addition to the powertrain warranty, the dealership also offers free carwashes.

Another new policy at Huntington Chevrolet is its use of no-commission salespeople.

“We have what we call our ‘right price,’” explains Georgion. “That way, there’s no haggling and people going back and forth, if possible.”

An additional new feature at the dealership is that free hot dogs and hamburgers will be grilled there every Saturday.

“We want to make it a fun experience,” says Georgion of shopping at the dealership.

Aside from sales, the dealership will continue to operate a service center. The center, which is GM certified, will work on all makes and models, regardless of where they were purchased. On service jobs, free local pickup will be offered to customers, as will delivery or shuttle service.

While the dealership may be offering a variety of new things, Georgion says customers can expect to see many of the same faces who have worked at the dealership for years.

“It adds credibility to the dealer that the customer comes in and, if they come in a year later, they’re still dealing with the same person that was here a year ago,” observes Georgion.

In addition to Georgion and Pannos, other prominent figures at the dealership include Chad Holzinger, sales manager, and Angel Bahena, business manager.

Huntington Chevrolet’s sales office is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The service center is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The dealership is located at 239 Hauenstein Rd., Huntington. The phone number is 356-2334 and the website is www.
