For more than 20 years, Orangeville Chrysler has been the go to stop for all your latest Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep models. However, it’s not just the hottest new vehicles patrons visit this dealership for. It’s the trust that comes from a hometown community-based business that drives customers to visit.
“We’ve been around for 20 years now. We’re a local business in the community. We serve the community. Everyone who works here is from the community, so we’re not going anywhere,” said Brian Kluke, General Manager adding, “Most of our customers know us. There’s a local atmosphere in the building.”
Mr. Kluke said that the business is built on a foundation that strives to be one which appeases the local community.
“We don’t go outside the community to look for business. We stay within the community. We advertise in this area. We have hired people in the area. We’re all from the area,” he said. “I’d recommend you come here because it’s a home experience. You’ll feel at home here, and you won’t feel like you left town to buy a car. You’re not in the big city where it’s all fast talk.”
Orangeville Chrysler is a family-run business, which Mr. Kluke believes is important.
“We’ve always been known for our fairness. I would say we’re famous for fairness. (Owner) Gary Finkler has always been noted that he’s famous for fairness,” he said. “We strive to keep everyone in the community happy.”
Mr. Kluke said that Chrysler has been on a roll for the last four or five years, which makes Orangeville Chrysler the ideal stop when looking for new or preowned vehicle.
“We have the number one minivan in the world right now, and it has been for the last 25 or 30 years – the Caravan,” he said. “The crossover, Journey, has been awarded quite a few times. It was the number one crossover last year. There’s nothing to compare to the Jeep line. The Ram truck is truck of the year this year. So, Chrysler has made a lot of headway over the last five years.”
Mr. Kluke said that Chrysler has always had a solid core of vehicles, yet, due to an alliance formed between the italian automobile manufacturer, Fiat, and Chrysler in 2009, Fiat is changing the game.
“Fiat has taken over Chrysler. They’ve brought a lot of new technology over,” he said. “They have new Diesel engines. They have a new and different approach to business. So, the new Fiat part of the equation has been very helpful to Chrysler.”
Mr. Kluke concluded by saying, “We have withstood the test of time, and we’re only getting better.”
Orangeville Chrysler conducts an annual Christmas donation of stuffed animals to the Headwater’s Children’s Hospital as well as the Legion and any other place where children are in need of Christmas cheer.
“Owner Gary Finkler buys these stuffed animals and donates them to any needy kid. We take them all over the place.”
