Driver’s Village in Cicero is constantly looking for ways to make both buying a car and getting it serviced a pleasant experience for its customers.
Located at 5885 East Circle Drive, Driver’s Village saw growth last year with Fiat USA Studio, now open with dozens of Fiat 500 vehicles including Sport, Pop, Lounge and Cabriolet. These imported European-built vehicles are unmistakeable in design, fit, finish, fuel-efficiency and destined to be a new, Italian classic, today.
The dealership also started selling GMC brand last February, and in March Driver’s Village will welcome Chevrolet to its family as it takes over what was formerly Bresee Chevrolet. In addition, Bresee has a commercial truck division, for which Driver’s Village has built a new home on the east side of the building.
“That division will sell all of our brands to commercial customers throughout the CNY region,” said Lou Bregou, director of operations at Driver’s Village.
Moving and expanding
The decision to build out the Fiat USA Studio next to Driver’s Village Express & Expressions was the catalyst to move and expand the Finance First offices between Nissan and Mitsubishi on the north side of the facility. Finance First is a one-stop automotive lending center with multiple financing resources to help people secure a loan for their next vehicle, and build their credit score profile, even if they’ve had some troubles in the past. The Expression and Installation Store offers automotive accessories such as remote starters, GPS and heated seats. It also has its own graphic shop with custom designed auto wrap signage, including a state-of-the-art Driver’s Village Collision Center / Body Shop, New York State’s largest and most modern collision facility.
Driver’s Village also has made the most of its location, remodeling the old Ames building and moving its expanded used car Warehouse into that space, along with a new reconditioning center.
