James Motors

Makes Car Buying Easy

When you walk in to James Motors, you’re greeted with a friendly hello and a smile.  The dealership may have a new name, but when you enter the showroom and service station, you will find many of the same friendly faces that have been working at the facility for many years.  Known as the King of Savings, James Motors offers both new and pre-owned vehicles, an expanded service center and longtime staff, some of whom have been serving customers in Hampshire for over 20 years.  

Sales Managers Rusty Mulvaney, who worked for over 20 years with John Fenzel, and Steve Stanley who has been at that location for six years, are still on staff offering the same customer-focused service and knowledge that residents have relied on for many years.  

Exterior-showroom-2-(1).JPGEvidence of the dealership is everywhere in the village.  Enter the downtown from the north and travelers are treated to a rainbow of new Dodge Challengers, Dodge Chargers and other new models poised for sale.  A bit further into town and potential buyers can catch a glimpse of shining new Ram trucks awaiting a test drive. At the corner of Rinn Avenue and East Street, buyers will find the Wrangler lot, brimming with brand new Jeeps for sale.  These, plus a showroom of 30 new vehicles, are among the offerings you’ll find at James Motors.  

Vito Losacco is the General Manager of the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, & Ram dealership that was purchased from John Fenzel in January of 2018. This is the 76th year that a dealership has occupied the space at 206 S. State Street.  The staff is pleased to report that their relationship with the former owner continues to be great.  In fact, John Fenzel still comes in a couple times a week and has coffee with the service customers. 

Owner James Reveliotis chose to purchase this dealership because the small town feeling of Hampshire reminded him of the Monee location where his Mitsubishi dealership is located.  Despite the small-town size of Monee, Reveliotis built up the dealership to be number one in the Midwest.  Both the owner and the staff are committed to the town of Hampshire and to growing with this community.

“What we like best is the people.  Hampshire is a good Midwestern town.  Everybody waives to us.  They beep when they drive by.  I can’t believe how friendly everyone is,” Vito said.   

Showroom-2.JPGWhat sets James Motors apart from other dealers is their commitment to the customer and the ease of doing business with the team. James’ staff of 25 professionals ensures that customers know who they are working with and can build a relationship of trust.  

Customers have responded favorably to the atmosphere because it is unlike any other showroom with its brick walls and open ceilings.   Since opening in January of 2018, the dealership has expanded its vehicular offerings by close to 300 percent, has five mechanics on staff to service vehicles and has expanded the hours of both sales and service to better meet the needs of customers.

During these times when every dealer can get the same price for tis customers, the staff at James Motors believes the difference is one hundred percent all about customer service.  “This is a small town and we take care of you.
