Most shoppers don’t have an affinity for car dealerships, but Newton Nissan has proven that it is the exception to the rule. For the second year in a row, Newton Nissan has been named the #1 Nissan Dealership in America by shoppers on DealerRater.
“Car buyers have spoken and have identified Newton Nissan as the best Nissan dealer to do business with in the U.S,” said DealerRater CEO Gary Tucker. “The quality and number of reviews for Newton Nissan speak volumes of the top-notch experiences they provide to customers.”
Out of 1,080 Nissan dealerships in the United States, Newton Nissan’s PowerScores emerged at the top of the class. The PowerScore is determined using a Bayesian algorithm that factors the dealership’s average DealerRater consumer rating and the total number of reviews written about the dealership during the 2016 calendar year.
Founded in 2002, DealerRater, a Cars.com Company, is the world’s leading car dealer review website that connects consumers with the right dealership. The 2017 Dealer of the Year awards were announced at the National Automobile Dealers Association Awards Ceremony on January 27th.
The annual awards are based on reviews by car shoppers and those who took their vehicles into dealerships for service. Reviewers evaluated Newton Nissan on its customer service, quality of work, friendliness, pricing and overall experience.
“This feels like a David and Goliath moment for us,” says Mike Abbondanza, the Vice President of Newton Nissan. “Most dealerships are owned by big corporations with lots of resources; but our team is small, local, and we put a lot of heart into everything we do.”
Newton Nissan has two award-winning locations on the outskirts of Nashville; one in Gallatin, and one in Shelbyville. Beyond it’s national recognition, the Newton team is known for its community involvement like Trunk or Treat, and its annual car giveaway for high school students.
