GRAND BLANC — The dust is starting to settle on a handful of construction projects in process over the past few months at the Al Serra Auto Plaza and the first new building open for business is Volkswagen of Grand Blanc.
The new VW facility is located on the Al Serra Auto Plaza campus on S. Saginaw Street, south of the Al Serra Buick-GMC dealership and right next to Kia of Grand Blanc.
“It’s been a busy spring and summer around here,” said Joe Serra, President of Serra Automotive. “Besides having four major construction projects all going at the same time, we have also been setting records for sales and service. Everyone at Al Serra deserves a lot of credit for working so hard to make sure our customers haven’t experienced any inconvenience.”
According to Serra, the last 10 days have been spent applying all the finishing touches to the beautiful 10,688 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility and now the Volkswagen of Grand Blanc team has the lot packed with inventory ready to roll off the lot.
“This really is an exciting time for everyone at Al Serra and the entire community,” said Serra. “Volkswagen has an outstanding line-up of sedans, compacts, wagons, SUVs and even convertibles, and up until now, the closest VW dealership available was in Rochester Hills.”
In addition to a solid line-up of vehicles, including the classic Volkswagen Beetle, Volkswagen of Grand Blanc is fully equipped for service and features VW’s three-year, 36,000 mile Carefree Maintenance program that covers oil changes, tire rotations and more.
With the addition of Volkswagen, the Al Serra Auto Plaza now offers Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, GMC, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Honda, Kia and MV-1, the nation’s only van manufactured specifically for wheelchair accessibility.
Subaru of Grand Blanc is scheduled to open in October, while construction of the new Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram service department and the dedicated Cadillac showroom is expected to be finished in November and December respectively.
The Al Serra Auto Plaza is flagship location of the Serra Automotive network headquartered in Grand Blanc. — G.G.
