South Pointe Chevrolet has always placed valued customers first, whether you are looking for a new or used car, or are in need of factory authorized service on your vehicle. The dealership has long been recognized as providing a customer-friendly environment, and recently completed a major makeover to their showroom, customer lounge and service drive areas. “The major remodeling project has also made South Pointe one of the finest auto facilities in our state for providing an exceptional sales and service experience to our customers,” says Mike Griffin, fixed operations director.
With the recent demise of Saturn, South Pointe has been awarded the Saturn factory authorized service dealership for Tulsa and surrounding communities. South Pointe is the preferred service provider and the exclusive provider of Saturn parts. Although new car production was halted in October of 2009, Saturn parts manufacturers will be providing parts for many years.
According to Service Manager Kevin Copeland, “South Pointe has made a major commitment to both the Saturn brand and vehicle owners. Because of our state-of-the-art facility, plus our willingness to make this commitment, our dealership was selected to provide uninterrupted factory authorized service for Saturn owners.” In addition to South Pointe's commitment to excellence during this transition, Saturn executives were extremely impressed with the level of dedication from South Pointe's service technicians for repeatedly surpassing training requirements and achieving some of the highest ratings in the region. South Pointe has pledged its loyalty to Saturn owners and is already providing services for Saturn automobiles.
Griffin stated that South Pointe maintains a large parts inventory, with more scheduled to arrive in the near future. The GM-trained Goodwrench technicians have enjoyed keeping GM vehicles running their best for years. They have a tradition of making repairs and scheduled warranty services uncomplicated. Customers are advised of recommended services for their vehicles and given what the cost will be before work begins. The same is true for their new Saturn customers. “We want to be your one stop for all your maintenance and service needs,” says Copeland. Whether your car needs tires, brake work, periodic maintenance work, or a multipoint vehicle inspection, South Pointe can do it – they have the expertise, the technology, and a convenient location and hours.
Kevin Copeland and Mike Griffin proudly announce South Pointe as the new Saturn factory authorized service dealer for Tulsa and surrounding communities.
