About us.

Pennant Motors is an independent car dealership located in Fairview Pennsylvania (Just outside of Erie). We specialize in European car brands including Volvo, Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Saab, and others. We sell these cars because we truly believe that they are the best value on the used car market today. When viewing our inventory, you'll notice that our prices are extremely low compared to many other dealerships in the area. This is because our pricing is based on a search of comparable cars for sale in the entire country. We sell our cars to customers in all corners of the globe, and must remain competitive on this scale.

Pennant Motors has been in business since late 2009. We originally started our business out of a location on West 12th Street in Erie - just down the street from the Erie International Airport. In late 2013, we expanded to our current 14,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Fairview, PA. Because of increasing sales, as well as the high demand for European car service in the greater Erie area, this move was absolutely necessary. In our new location, we have built a completely new service facility designed specifically to efficiently service and repair European cars. We have invested thousands of dollars in the necessary electronics, computers, and equipment so that we can perform every bit of advanced service as new car dealerships for a fraction of the price. We've also obtained Bosch Car Service Certification. (See Below) Additionally, our huge new showroom allows for the demonstration of our cars without having to venture into the harsh weather we experience here in the greater Erie area. If you're coming from out of town, your car will be ready for delivery inside our showroom to make it easy to inspect the car and familiarize yourself with your new ride!

Whether you live right here in the Erie area, or across the globe in Dubai, we have the perfect European car at the right price - just for you! To get an idea of how dedicated we are to our cars, check out the Pennant Motors Hall of Fame for a sampling of some of the most special motorcars we've ever sold.

Our 14,000 square foot facility allows us to serve you better!

Reviews

Here's what just a few of our hundreds of satisfied customers have to say:

Rachael was spectacular! I purchased a 2006 volvo xc90 recently. I must say from the initial contact to the conclusion of the transaction, the staff and particularly Rachael was excellent! The car was fairly represented, the prep work on the car was also excellent. Honestly, it is a used car with 129K + miles, but I had looked at several others and this one was genuinely the best. The price was more than fair. There were two issues and Rachael did not quibble, she said that they would fix them at their expense. I am most satisfied and highly recommend Pennant motors and their staff as honest, reputable and very fair. Post sale contact has also been excellent with Rachael conscientiously responding to every inquiry.. - John; Indianapolis, IN

I want to give a huge shout out "Thank You" to the folks at Pennant Motors, Rachael Miller, Shannon Briody, Brian Bigwood for being SO AWESOME! I went in to buy a car almost a year ago, I was so impressed initially with Rachael (the GM) who knows her stuff & is genuine and honest. Then, there's Shannon, (head mechanic). He has never ONCE talked down to me because I'm a woman. He has educated me on my car over and over. Brian - well, Brian makes me laugh & I will buy my next car from him! The team over there is amazing - I am glad that I can now consider them all friends! Thank you everyone for your help~ I really appreciate it! I MEAN IT - if anyone is in the market for an affordable, quality used car (they specialize in European cars like Volvo & Audi) PLEASE - check them out! They're also a BOSCH Certified service center - which I've learned, is quite an honor! So, if you have a car that needs repair, call Pennant first, I'd be willing to bet you'll be pleasantly surprised! - Jamie; Erie, PA

Great Experience. Great People to Buy from! Drove to Florida with zero problems. - Stephen; Sanibel, FL

Had been looking at other cars on their lot. Rachael - always helpful, funny and courteous, Mike - so knowledgeable, eager to please. Spotted my glistening Mercedes, very high miles, but stunning. Turns out they'd had great detailing work done, just perfect, inside, engine bay and outside. Car from the South, underside as clean as could be, no rust. They'd promised new tires, and delivered on that promise! Had questions about front brakes after owning the car for 2 weeks, they replaced rotors, pads the next day. Look folks, they buy QUALITY used cars in the first place, do what is needed to make them reliable and beautiful again, and sell them at reasonable prices. They stand behind what they sell, you simply cannot ask for more from a used automobile dealer. They're not big today, but as the word gets out, they will be! - Dennis; Erie, PA

I had just purchased a higher mileage Volvo locally in Lancaster, PA. I had gotten numerous quotes through a Swedish specialty shop local as well as 2 other garages to do suspension work. Pennant Motors was remarkably less expensive. To the point where I made a staycation weekend trip out of it and drove 700mi round trip to Fairview, PA to get the work done. Including lodging and gas this was still a good $1000 less than the competition. They have A LOT of Volvo's and other Euro's and are very experienced working on them. A huge shoutout to Mike, Rachael, and the entire professional staff! From my random messages down to the final details at the last minute they all made it happen! The Volvo Masters. - Albert; Lancaster, PA

Honestly the best place I have ever taken my car to. Great people, great service, overall great place! Needed a new battery for my BMW, the BMW dealer quoted me almost $500, Pennant quoted me a little over $250!!!!!! Half the price, double the service! I highly recommend this place! - Bruce; Warren, PA
