MileOne Automotive Acquires RK Auto Group's Buick Franchise for Hall Platform in Virginia Beach

"We've worked hard for nearly a year to add a Buick franchise to our Hall Pontiac GMC Hummer dealership," said Fred Miller, President and Chief Operating Officer for MileOne's Hall Automotive platform. "We support General Motors in their efforts to consolidate the brands, in order to make our customers' shopping experiences easier and more satisfying."

General Motors is consolidating franchise locations around the country. Currently, over 70% of sales come from dealerships with multiple General Motors franchises. MileOne now operates three combination dealerships that include the Buick franchise - Motorworld in Wilkes-Barre, PA, Heritage Autopark just north of Baltimore, MD and the Virginia Beach location.

"We can't wait to meet our new family of Buick owners," said Jason Mays, Service Director at Hall Buick Pontiac GMC Hummer. "Our General Motors certified Master Technicians have been gearing up for this and will provide warranty assistance, quality information, education and service for anything from new tires to oil changes to major services, like engine and electrical issues. In addition, we can help our customers with any Buick accessory needs including navigation and entertainment systems. Our new customers will find that at Hall, we don't just have more cars, but we have great people and we are very proud to have Buick as part of our team."

Current Buick customers in the Virginia Beach area can bring their cars to the 3200 Virginia Beach Blvd. service location immediately for any service or warranty needs and will receive an unparalleled servicing experience from the team at Hall Buick Pontiac GMC Hummer. All Buick owners will also receive our new owner "No Strings Guarantee", which provides them with 2 free oil changes, lifetime free state inspections, $500 trade allowance, lifetime parts & service guarantee, free towing, 10% discount on parts and service, high school & college discounts. In addition, shoppers can test drive Buick's newest models ranging from the fully equipped V8 292 horsepower Lucerne Super luxury sedan to the brand new luxury crossover, the Enclave.
