US Fiat dealer list (unofficial)


Here is an unofficial list of reported new US Fiat dealers. This was gathered from various sources and the internet, ie., online newspapers, dealership Facebook pages, anonymous sources, etc.

This is published in the interest to keep people informed and up to date, however, it must be stressed that this is all preliminary and there are contracts and agreements that need to be signed, so if you call the dealership, remember, it's not official until it's official.

Also, don't expect a lot of information, because once the contract is signed, there is a lot of training, hiring and building that needs to be done, so bear that in mind when you call. There isn't a trailer full of 500s parked out back, yet...

Remember, this is a partial list, I update it as I find more dealers. In the meantime, this is what I've found so far:

I hope this IS a partial list and that more will be on that list as I don't see any from Oregon or Washington on the list yet and I know they were looking at 2 for Washington, Seattle and Tacoma, I'll be happy with just one dealer to start with in this area.

I called Cardinal Chrysler in Louisville, KY. Their sales manager confirmed that they were selected to be a Fiat franchisee earlier this week. He expected to be selling 500's in the first quarter of 2011.

Ho Ciddyguy,

Yes, this is in no way complete. I'm adding dealers as I find them.

Of course, if a dealer wants to help me out and contact ME, that would be great;)

Thank you to the dealers that have.

I'm sure there is someone up where you are, there are already a few folks that have reserved a Prima Edizione in your area.

Best regards, Chris

Please remember this is a PARTIAL list. I am adding dealers as I, and others, find them.

Of course there will be an announcement with All the dealers chosen, but while we're waiting, this partial list will have to do.

It definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat with anticipation!

Family Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Philadelphia has not been officially named as a Fiat dealer at this point. According to our ownership it may be some time before we have confirmation. In the meantime it's great to see all the enthusiasm generated by this announcement.

I just heard that Austintown Ohio will have a Fiat dealer. Bob and Chuck Eddy Chrysler will be a Fiat dealer. Still waiting for any news of a Pittsburgh Fiat dealer...

I called a local dealer in the San Francisco-Bay Area and spoke with someone at Putnam Chrysler in Daly City (approx 5 miles south of SF) and they said they expected to become one because of some previous agreement. I checked for a Putnam Fiat website and there it was. www.putnamfiatalfaromeo.com
So I believe they will be a dealer too because they are taking info on people interested in the 500. I'm waiting to see where I'm getting my #392. Ciao!

Laura in New England said...

This is killing me! I've seen a few press releases mentioning Maine as one of the states where Chrysler has awarded Fiat dealerships, but have no idea which one, despite a few calls to several dealerships in the area. I know, I know: "Patience grasshopper."

Hi Laura,

A couple of things are going on.

One is Fiat asked all the dealers to sit tight with the announcements. I know some aren't, but you can't blame them, It is a staggering amount of money to come up with, especially in this economy. They want to get the word out ASAP.

Once the lawyers are all done with the agreements, zoning and building permits, etc., have to be pursued. Another time consuming process. This stuff all has to be finalized before the banners are broken out.

The first round of dealers were picked but there are more coming, PLUS maybe some none Chrysler dealers.

I'm in the same boat as you, there are some dealers around me, but none would commit themselves. None took me up on my offer putting there name up here (free advertising) despite the 50,000 hits I had in the last 15 days.

Like you said..."Patience grasshopper." LOL

Chris

Chris said...

Oops, should be "their name" not "there name". I've got to fire the proof reader!

Laura in New Englad said...

Oh I know how complicated this is. I read your post on that. In fact, I read your blog quasi-religiously, sometimes (often?) twice a day. Come to think of it, more. I'm afraid I may account for a high number of the hits you've gotten in the past 15 days!!! Thanks for all the posts...

I'm glad there's at least one other person eagerly waiting for a Maine dealership. I was disappointed when I called Lee Dodge in Westbrook, the person who answered said it wasn't going to be them. That's surprising, considering the positive attitude here:
http://www.autoshippingnetwork.com/blog/2010/09/07/dealers-see-fiat-profits-but-when/
Jolly John's is in ownership transition, don't know if they were in a position to make a proposal. There's plenty of other Dodge/Chrysler dealerships in Maine, but I don't know if any qualify as "greater Portland area."

Have to admit I am a bit concerned about the fact that the Seattle Dealer's website states that "the Fiat 500 will start at a recommended retail price of $22,990"

That is much higher than Chris's estimate of a starting price just under $16,000.
