Local Car Dealership thread

Postby Big E » Fri Jan 09, 2009 2:55 pm

Since this isn't the first and I'll bet anything you want it won't be the last, I thought I'd pre-emptively consolidate all the local car dealership news in to one thread.

Reagan Closing at 185th and Dodge

Reagan Buick, Pontiac, GMC at 185th Street and West Dodge Road is closing.

Ken Reagan, president of the dealership, announced the closing this afternoon.

The statement cited a "perfect storm" of conditions, including the economic downturn, a lack of consumer confidence and changes imposed by GMAC and General Motors, as the reason.
"The above statement was not intended to be factual."

Metro Mitsubishi closes, joining another dealer

http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_page=1 ... d=10597703

JOSEPH BRENNAN WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER wrote:Metro Mitsubishi closed its auto dealership near Westroads Mall this weekend, but the company does not plan to exit the Omaha market.

Tony Anderson, sales manager for Mitsubishi, said Saturday that the business will reopen under new ownership in several weeks.

He said the dealership will merge with an existing auto dealer he declined to identify. Anderson said he is working to place current employees with the merged dealership.

Mitsubishi has operated in the Omaha area for 16 years, Anderson said, including 13 near the Southroads in Bellevue before moving to 1010 N. 102nd St. in Omaha about three years ago.

The Mitsubishi lot was virtually empty Saturday, the doors to the sales office locked.

Metro Mitsubishi is the second longtime car dealer in the Omaha market to shut down this year. Reagan Buick Pontiac GMC Inc., 185th Street and West Dodge Road, closed in January after 31 years.

Anderson said bad economic news and "a fear factor" among customers are depressing auto sales.

He said Mitsubishi sales in Omaha steadily declined over the past year, down by about 90 percent compared to this time last year.

Mitsubishi may be having trouble, but down the street at Stan Olsen Audi they seem to be feeling a bit more optimistic. I was down there looking around when I saw one of these in the showroom window...2009 R8 in Ibis White. Yours for $133,000

A lot of new car dealerships have opened in the west, but only a few of their former locations were immediately used for something less appealing. There was no ghetto-making with most of these moves. I'll go through every new car dealership that has been built in the last decade from west to east...

Infiniti of Omaha: their former showroom at 60th and L was extensively remodeled and is now Porsche of Omaha (heh)

Mitsubishi of Omaha (shares a showroom with Infiniti): their most recent showroom was in front of Westroads and was recently torn down for some reason. Their dealership before that in Bellevue is now Todd Archer Hyundai

Former Regan Pontiac GMC Buick, soon to be Performance Ford: their former showroom is now Saturn of Omaha at 144th and Center. Saturn of Omaha's former showroom was at 114th and Dodge and was never built to sell cars to begin with, its an office building. Regan's showroom at 144th and Center was exclusively an Oldsmobile dealership until Oldsmobile was killed. They moved their Buick franchise there from 60th and L and bought the Pontiac and GMC franchises from Stan Olsen after that. The former Regan Buick showroom is now Woodhouse Mazda and was just extensively remodeled to be more characteristic of other Mazda dealerships.

Baxter Chrysler Dodge Jeep: The former Chrylser/Jeep location is now Performance Ford. The Dodge franchise, before they bought it, was known as Ron Olsen Dodge and was located in what was Mitsubishi of Omaha's former showroom which has since been torn down in front of Westroads.

Gregg Young Chevy: Probably the most ghetto-making, their former showroom on Crown Pointe is now a used car dealership (which they own).

Gorges Volvo: Former showroom at 60th and L now sells construction equipment (also kind of a ghetto-maker)

Superior Honda: fromer showroom at 35th and Broadway in CB was a check cashing place, but has since been torn down and is now a Bucky's gas station

Acura of Omaha: former showroom at 84th and F still sells Kias as it did when Acura of Omaha was located there (they just separated the two brands).

Mercedes Benz of Omaha: Technically they moved east....they were at a former construction equipment dealership at Industrial and Center until they built their new place at 144th and L. Before that, however, they were sold at the former Lithia Chrysler aka Jim Earp Chrysler at 60th and L.

Performance Chrysler/Jeep: Used to be Grube Chrysler Jeep in downtown Papillion. Their former showroom now sells boats I believe.

Performance Toyota/Scion: Used to be Southroads Toyota off Fort Crook Road in Bellevue. Their former showroom went through the drastic transformation into....another Toyota dealership. It is now Bellevue Toyota. I think Bellevue Toyota used to be Bluffs Toyota, but I don't know where in CB that was located.

Other things to note:

The only empty car dealerships I can think of right now besides Regan is the former Rhoden Dodge in Council Bluffs and Lithia Ford.

Plaza Pontiac GMC Buick, which used to be at 60th and L with the Volvo dealership moved west, but to the former Sam's Club at 120th and L.

Performance Ford used to be Markel Ford. Markel traded the ford franchise for Baxter's Jag and Land Rover franchise. So, for what its worth, Jaguars and Land Rovers are now sold easterly of where they used to be (which is now Performance Ford at 120th and Dodge) in an extensively remodeled showroom at 102nd and California at the Westroads.

Stan Olsen Nissan/Hyundai is now exclusively a Nissan dealership (Nissan of Omaha). The Hyundai franshise was moved east to the former Stan Olsen Pontiac/GMC/Saab/Subaru dealership at the Westroads. Of those brands that were moved out of there, Subaru was built its own showroom on the Olsen lot, Saab is (was?) now sold in the Cadillac showroom at Huber, and Pontiac and GMC were sold to the now defunct Regan company.

Of the handful of new or additional franchises that opened up in Omaha recently (ie didn't exist previously somewhere else) only the CarMax used car dealership was built on a greenfield site. Huber Hummer used to be parking lot on the Huber campus. Mini of Omaha is in the former and extensively remodeled Markel BMW showroom (Markel BMW was moved to the main building with Jag and Land Rover). smart Center La Vista was built as an addition onto Performance Chrysler Jeep Dodge. Todd Archer Hyundai used to be Metro Mitsubishi. Performance VW could be considered greenfield development or infill depending on how you look at it.

That said, I do believe the former Regan store is a bit bigger than where Performance Ford is now. Their lot always seems to be crowded. This makes way for a prime-redevelopment opportunity at that corner. I highly doubt that showroom will be sitting empty or underused for too long.[/list]

As I was driving by the former Lithia building on the south side of L at 50th I noticed a sign that said it was the future home of a high school.  I can not remember off of the top of my head which one but I am pretty sure it is one of the St. Peter Claver Cristo Rey Catholic Schools.  The old St. Mary's on 36th and Q is one as well.  I wonder if they are going to move it or if there will be two of them that close to each other.  I will try to drive by there tonight to verify.

I drove by Stan Olsen yesterday and things were similar. They might have put some of their cars up for auction. I believe that is something car dealers do if it doesn't seem like they'll be sold at a good enough profit. Usually that's for used cars though, so I could be wrong.

Do dealers have to pay taxes on inventory if they hold on through 12/31/XX?

The last few times I went to Beardmore for an oil change and they hardly had any cars... last time they had 4 used subarus, and 3 2010 subarus, plus almost every car that was being delivered was already claimed. They said that business had been very good and they were having a difficult time keeping cars on the lot. They were having cars delivered from other cities that had more inventory.

[font=Georgia]H&H Chevrolet acquires Kia dealership[/font]

Pat Waters WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER wrote:H&H Chevrolet at 84th and L Streets has purchased Kia of Omaha. Because Kia, at 84th and F Streets, is just a few blocks north of H&H Chevrolet, the two stores will share some support and administrative personnel. Hinchcliff said a combined Acura-Kia dealership opened at the intersection of 84th and F Streets in 1989. Acura later moved to its own building in west Omaha.

Driving by this lot occasionally and for some reason today I remembered that this was a supposed option for this former dealership.  I see that there is a FOR SALE sign up again and no note of any school going in there any more.  Probably been this way for a long time.  Anyone if anything changed other than the economy?

Omaha will soon be getting its first Fiat dealership. Predictably it'll be owned by Performance.

Omaha World Herald wrote:Hull said Performance also will begin selling cars products by Fiat, the Italian parent company of Chrysler, when it completes a new dealership building in the auto plaza.

America certainly got the better end of the stick with the product sharing between Chrysler and its new parent company Fiat.

Fiat is giving America these awesomely Italian little cars:

While Italy and probably most of Europe get a rebadged Dodge Journey know as the Fiat Freemont:

Although I have to say the Journey does look pretty good in its Fiat clothing.

As per the fiat Website these are the only car available for sale within the US, for now


The Fiat 500 and the Fiat 500 Cabrio

Starting base price of 15,500

The car only gets 27/34 MPG ... I dont think that is too good as the Cruze, Elantra, and Focus all get above 40.

I was in Rome for a meeting last year.  I saw a Ferrari that was easily the ugliest car I have ever seen.  I was transfixed, it was a combination of brown body and a cloth top that was not quite wine colored, but not quite brown either.   All of the other Ferrari's I have seen have been beauties, but this one made you yearn for a Yugo to come smash into it, so it could get hauled away and removed from public view before it scares anymore small children.

No...no not in the least bit. The 500's funky design kinda has to grow on some people, I thought it was a little odd at first, but given the choice I would never pick a Journey/Freemont over a 500. It's just a mediocre SUV (err...crossover) that isn't even all that great at what it was designed to do. Chrysler has been a disaster since the late '00s, especially compared to where they were in the mid '90s. They're on there way back to being a respectable car brand in many ways, but Fiat has their work cut out for them.

I keep trying to talk my wife into a Fiat 500 Abarth Esseesse, but she says it "looks like a roller skate."  Hey, if Top Gear gave it their seal of approval, it's got mine!

I do agree that they ought to get better fuel economy, but since the EPA recently updated their driving profile for the highway rating, everything went down, so you have to be careful not to make comparisons to the older ratings.

Mini Coopers have been criticized for their fuel economy, but mpg jumped noticeably with the new engines in the 2nd gen models.

As far as a massive car dealer goes this will be ok.  They are actually taking some advantage of the already constructed on-street parking.

Yep.  I think I'm going to use all the car dealerships as a way to save the company money.  Every time we have someone out of town visit us, I'll walk over to the car dealership and 'test drive' a car for the day.  No more rental car fees!**

**Note to the lawyers of said car dealerships:  This is just a joke.  Please do not sue me.
