The History that Inspires Us. The Values that Fuel Us.

To us, buying or servicing a vehicle is more than just a transaction. It’s about helping people go farther, accomplish more, and enjoy the freedom of reliable transportation. Instilling that culture has led to lifelong relationships with thousands of customers in the tri-state area.

#1 Cochran was founded in 1965 as a single-point Pontiac store, just across the Pennsylvania border in Pittsburgh, PA. Since then, we’ve grown to more than 38 new vehicle franchises representing 19 domestic and imported brands.

Through it all, we’ve never left our family-owned roots, which inspire us to remain true to our origins and be an innovator in our industry. In particular, #1 Cochran is known for reinventing and enriching the customer experience.

Today, we’re thrilled to serve the Mahoning Valley with a variety of new vehicle brands: Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, Nissan, Honda, and Ford. In January of 2023, #1 Cochran acquired Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, part of the Sweeney automotive family that has been a fixture in the Boardman community for more than a century. We’re honored to continue their family-owned legacy. In June 2023, #1 Cochran acquired Boardman Nissan, making it our fifth Nissan store overall and first in Ohio. September of 2023 saw three more stores welcomed to the fold: Donnell Ford Boardman, The Honda Store, and Columbiana Cadillac.

Along with a first-class customer experience, we value transparency and convenience. Clearly Better Car Buying, a #1 Cochran exclusive, guarantees ClearCut pricing on every vehicle. That means you get the best possible price upfront without the need to haggle. Before you make any commitment, you’ll receive a 1-sheet summary of all the numbers related to your purchase or lease so you can be sure of your decision. #1 Cochran ExpressWay also saves you time by allowing you to complete some, most, or all of the buying process online. It’s easy to use, simple to navigate, and puts thousands of new and pre-owned vehicles at your fingertips.

At #1 Cochran, we’re excited about where the industry is headed, and we couldn’t be happier to be part of the Youngstown community. Discover firsthand the clear difference when you visit us today.
