Yark Automotive Group sets record, selling 10,000 cars in 2014

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Toledo car dealer, Yark Automotive Group, announced in press release a new set record, selling its 10,000th vehicle this year. 

Not only is this the most vehicles sold in the company's 34 year history, but it is also the highest amount of new and pre-owned vehicles sold by a single dealer group in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. 

Jeffery White of Toledo, Ohio bought the 10,000th vehicle, a 2015 Dodge Durango. This is the fourth vehicle Mr. White has bought from Yark Automotive.

Since 2008, when the market crashed and vehicle manufacturing plummeted, auto sales have slowly and steadily increased to the level they once were with Yark Automotive seeing a consistent increase in new and pre-owned sales. Now in 2014, U.S. automotive sales are approaching the former 2008 vehicle sales levels.

Yark has served the Metro Toledo area with brands like Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Alfa Romeo, FIAT, Nissan, Subaru, Chevrolet, and BMW as well as six pre-owned facilities, while other dealerships have had to close.

Yark Automotive Group President John Yark contributes their success to the efforts of all their employees. 

“We have the best employees in the automotive industry,” said Yark. “We actively pursue ways to increase employee morale. By keeping our employees happy, it translates to keeping our customers happy.”

Yark's success has also been recognized. Automotive News has named every Yark dealership in the top 100 Dealers to Work For in the U.S. over the past three years with the naming of three Yark stores, Yark Chevrolet, Yark FIAT, and Yark Nissan, in 2014.  

Yark Automotive Group is also be awarded one of the Top Work Places in Toledo by the Toledo Blade for the second year in a row.

And this year Yark is wrapping up its 20th consecutive year as the largest new and pre-owned vehicle retailer in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. 

Yark Automotive Group Vice President Doug Kearns says since 2009 total sales are up over 84 percent.

“It's quite an achievement to be able to sell as many automobiles as we have while maintaining a great sales and service experience for our customers,” said Kearns. “We're very proud to have grown to 10,000 vehicles sold so quickly.”
