We take pride in delivering unmatched value and selection, and are continuously striving to exceed expectations. Our belief is that buying a vehicle is more than just a transaction; it is an experience that extends beyond the showroom and develops into a long-lasting relationship.

Taking into account feedback from customers, Rob Cochran developed the Clearly Better Car Buying philosophy, which has been a game changer in the regional auto dealer scene since its introduction in 2013. Our top priority is to ensure that your experience with us is exceptional from start to finish.

Our History

When World War II erupted, we began to manufacture War material, not only on the premises at Wick Avenue, but also in buildings around the area. We cut and formed tank parts. Additionally, military vehicles were brought back from African and Italian Companies and repaired in anticipation of sending them to the Pacific. We were incredibly proud to do our part to support the war effort.

In 1969, Buick Youngstown’s original showroom was demolished and a new one was erected with a larger Service Department. These facilities served #TeamSweeney well until 1986, when a new Buick Youngstown facility was built on Market Street in Boardman, Ohio to better meet the needs of the growing dealership. Our operations in Boardman include over 50,000 square feet of Sales, Service, and Office Space situated on 20 acres of land. Always focused on the Customer, we have been willing to change to meet the demands and lifestyles of our Customers. This was demonstrated by the addition of the GMC Truck franchise in 1987, Pontiac franchise in 1996, and the Chevrolet franchise in 2004.

Currently, the company still operates on both sides of Market Street in Boardman, Ohio. However, we have grown every year thanks to the continued support of the Valley. Today, we employ nearly 200 full-time valley residents. We have even been fortunate enough to recently completed two renovations and expansions. We have also been honored with such awards as the General Motors Mark of Excellence for each of our brands 2013-2022 and the DealerRater Customer Satisfaction Award. We were also nominated for both the TIME Magazine and DealerRater Dealer of the Year honor.

In January, 2023, the Sweeney dealerships were acquired by #1 Cochran, the largest auto group in Western Pennsylvania.  #1 Cochran has been in business for over 65 years and has the same family values and commitment to the community that the Sweeney team has prided itself on for over a century.  With nearly all of the original 200 employees retained, you can expect the same great service, amazing offers, and huge selection.

Like Sweeney, #1 Cochran has a long, storied history with General Motors.  They began selling GM vehicles just outside of Pittsburgh back in 1965 and currently count Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac among their many Pennsylvania franchises.  With nearly six decades of GM in their DNA, #1 Cochran promises to carry on the tradition the Sweeney family started in 1921.
