AutoNation Direct Partners with 

Florida Public Employees 

to Serve Those Who Serve 

Fort Lauderdale, FL (12/ 2/13) – AutoNation Direct has partnered with Florida Public Employees to provide a concierge auto buying program to public employees, their families and others associated with the public sector. Personal Auto Consultants provide members of the Florida Public Employees community a hassle-free and transparent experience by assisting them throughout the entire buying process.

“AutoNation and AutoNation Direct have been recognized for their charitable giving and support of our local community,” said Robert Asencio, President of Florida Public Employees. “Their desire to serve those who serve, the teachers, the first responders, government employees and all those in the public sector, makes them an ideal service provider for our state-wide community.”

AutoNation Direct is the nation’s number one choice for people who want to buy cars without having to show up at the dealership until they are ready to drive and buy. This innovative team of car buying experts literally stands in for the member– shopping and comparing cars, evaluating their trade-in, coordinating financing, and preparing documents – all before the member arrives at the dealership to drive and take delivery of the vehicle. Best of all, AutoNation Direct’s salaried Personal Auto Consultants are automotive experts that earn the same amount, no matter what the member buys, pays, or trades.

“For years, we’ve been discussing the best way we could introduce this service to the many and varied groups of the public sector in Florida,” said David Jacobson, General Manager of AutoNation Direct. “We believe that Florida Public Employees is the right organization for us to connect with this valued group of people. Our service provides an exceptional experience and serving those who serve others is a great fit with our values. ”
