We’re heading into our 30th anniversary!
First Team Volkswagen of Roanoke VA 30th anniversary
Time sure does fly by fast, but it’s hard to believe that our 30th anniversary here at First Team Volkswagen is happening next month. We opened our doors back on Oct. 3, 1988 and we feel nothing but gratitude for the success we’ve had since then. In 30 years, we have managed to become one of the most successful automotive groups across not just Roanoke, but the entire state of Virginia.
From a Hyundai dealership to an auto mall
Here at First Team Volkswagen, we typically put the focus on the VW models we sell. As an automotive group, though, we started out with the Hyundai branch. You can imagine the sort of struggles we had in 1988, when Hyundai was far from a household name. Clearly, we made it happen because we now have almost 800 vehicles across our auto group and have expanded to not only include Hyundai and VW, but Nissan and Subaru as well.
In addition to our focus on OEMs, we also have a Used Car Super Center, the First Team Truck Center and our Prestige Collection. We guess you can say we have our hands in quite a few different baskets. At the end of the day, we wouldn’t have grown so much if not for our community. It has always been our goal to have the best employees the area has to offer, and we think we’ve achieved that. We also know that our success depends on customer satisfaction. That’s why we incorporated our Values For Life to cover your engine, state inspections, car washes and our parts and service.
We also believe firmly in giving back to the community, which is why we believe in sharing our successes with the community through donations and sponsorships. These have included RAYSAC, The Children’s Miracle Network/Carilion Medical Center, Roanoke Public Schools Education Foundation, The United Way, The Muscular Dystrophy Association, Roanoke Valley SPCA, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Toys for Tots and more.
We’d like to thank the Roanoke Valley for supporting us for the last 30 years, and we hope to still be here for another 30.
