Al Serra Chevrolet North and South stores are ready to help you find the right Silverado for your lifestyle. In fact, with their extensive inventory of new and used cars, truck and SUV’s, each car buyer is sure to find the right vehicle for them.
For nearly 50 years, Al Serra Colorado automotive dealerships have been a mainstay in the Pikes Peak region. Al Serra Chevrolet South, (Academy Boulevard and Bijou Street), opened in 1967 as Williams Chevrolet, it would later be named Team Chevrolet, and then finally Al Serra Chevrolet South.
In 1998, the first dealership in the Chapel Hills Auto Mall (behind Walmart), Al Serra Chevrolet North was opened to serve the northern Colorado Springs community.
When Al Serra Volkswagen was introduced in 2003, they were located next to Al Serra Chevrolet South, until 2010 when a state-of-the-art dealership in the Chapel Hills Auto Mall was launched next door to Al Serra Chevrolet North.
The Al Serra Body Shop, located behind Al Serra Chevrolet South, is one of the largest and most technologically advanced body shops in the state, and the only body shop in Southern Colorado to receive VW certification for its repair quality, along with multiple other certifications.
No matter what location, or what capacity, the focus of all Al Serra stores has always been providing exceptional customer care and treating their employees like family. Many employees, from every department, have been with them for over 20 years – some have even been there over 30 years.
In fact, Jerry Colten, Owner and General Manager, credits his success to fostering an enthusiastic, energy-infused environment that is centered on the employees and the local community.
“Our relentless pursuit of excellence has helped us consistently move up the ranks of the top ranked Chevrolet dealers in terms of sales volume and customer satisfaction,” said Jerry.
In 2013 Al Serra Chevrolet South was the number two Chevrolet dealer, in terms of sales volume, in the state of Colorado, and number one in all of southern Colorado.
“Combined we sold more Chevrolet’s than any other single dealership in the state,” Jerry said.
Al Serra was first in sales volume, and had the highest customer satisfaction rating in Southern Colorado– for both Chevrolet and Volkswagen.
The Al Serra used car philosophy was embraced as a means to best serve the customers. All used vehicles are safety checked, CarFaxed, and warrantied. And, if you don’t like it ... you can bring it back.
Such a high level of achievement in the highly competitive new and used automobile market is a direct result of the dedication and effort of the entire Al Serra Dealership team.
