Three Things About Chapman Tucson

1. Chapman Tucson is a family-owned business that takes great pride in supporting the communities in which they operate. They walk the walk. In Tucson, their dealership includes: Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, Honda, Acura, Chapman Used Cars and last but certainly not least – Mercedes-Benz. Lots of top-rated clean fuel burning, fuel efficient vehicles in the Chapman inventory!
2. Chapman Tucson has worked continuously in the past two years to move in a greener direction from the inside out. There are currently two active “Green Teams” facilitated by yours truly. Biggest changes? NO plastic water bottles provided to customers in the Porsche/Audi dealership, recycling bins in all Chapman showrooms, and paper recycling bins under sales team desks.
3. Chapman Tucson produces some of the coolest commercials on TV – period. And they don’t use an out of town Production Company! Keeping with the “think local” mindset, Chapman partners with Motto Productions. Check it out on their website.
