Anthem Chevrolet Buick has one of the highest customer retention rates in the country. Owner Dave McFadden attributes this fact to several areas of customer service the dealership focuses on. “We think that our emphasis on product training, cutting edge equipment, materials, employee training and a commitment to a customer-friendly culture are by far what sets us apart from any of our competitors,” he said. “All of this has led to a customer retention rate, measured by Chevrolet, to be among the highest in the country.” Two of the areas of the business McFadden is particularly proud of this year are Anthem’s collision center and it’s growing tire business. “Our collision center has an impeccable reputation with customers and insurance companies,” McFadden said. McFadden explained that 2016 is proving to be the biggest year Anthem’s collision center has ever had. “I’ve owned the store for eight years, I’ve been in the

of collision repair work in 2016 exceeds any year in last 20,” he said. McFadden said the collision center has an excellent reputation that has been bolstered by new additions including a new full-time body repair technician and a new paint booth, installed in 2015, which have tremendously improved efficiency. Anthem has also switched providers in order to obtain a premium brand of paint. “We did all of that without increasing any costs to the customer or to the insurance company,” he said. McFadden said Anthem has also implemented a program where, as long as they have one available, they will provide a loaner vehicle to customers regardless of whether they have rental coverage with their insurance company. “All of those things have led to tremendous growth in our collision center,” he said. McFadden also spoke about Anthem’s tire business, stating that they have as good of tire equipment that you’ll find in the area.

McFadden said they also added a leverless tire changer, which allows them to remove the tire from the wheel with no levers, which is important due to the number of polished and chrome wheels the business sees. Turning to the types of inventory available at Anthem, McFadden said Chevrolet re-styled or redesigned more models in the 2016 product year than at anytime before in the company’s history.
