The LaFontaine Family opened their hearts to hundreds of children on October 18, 2016 at 9:00am at the ribbon cutting for the LaFontaine Learning Academy. We are so blessed to be able to show our support to the Whaley Children’s Center, a home for neglected children that have been taken from their parents for one of many different reasons. A safe place for the kids, the center offers security, love, and hope for the future. The LaFontaine Family is passionate about giving back, so much so that the mission statement for the Automotive Group includes “…building life long relationships that connect families and strengthen communities…”

Each spring on Mother’s Day, we collectively dedicate a Sunday to celebrating all that our mom’s have done and still do for us. But to be honest, one day out of 365 just doesn’t seem like enough, does it? Don’t our mom’s deserve more than one single day out of the year?

Celebrating the Month of Mom at LaFontiane| #MonthOfMom

Think about all the diaper changes, the chauffeur rides to the mall, the birthday parties and holiday celebrations, the extracurricular school activities and sports, the words of wisdom, the shoulder to cry on, that extra ten bucks for gas money, the sometimes-not-so-gentle reminders to mow the lawn or clean up our rooms….

I could go on, but you get the point – our mom’s do A LOT!

When you add it all up I think it’s clear that mom’s should be celebrated for way longer than just one day. That’s why at the LaFontaine Automotive Group, we’re officially renaming the month of May as the Month Of Mom.

Volvo Cars of Farmington Hills

Officially the dealership will be known as Volvo Cars of Farmington Hills (located at 24730 Haggerty Road) and will be open for sales and service on April 1, 2015.

Frank Dwyer will be personally involved in the daily operations of Volvo Cars of Farmington Hills, and I know he’s looking forward to carrying on the Dwyer tradition of customer service at our new location.

Cadillac recently told Edmunds.com that not all of its 940 dealers in the U.S. would carry the 2014 Cadillac ELR. In fact, upwards of 400 Cadillac dealers have opted not to carry the luxury brand’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle.

When posed with the question of whether or not to carry the ELR, Robert Milner, General Sales Manager of LaFontaine Cadillac, was adamant about the desire to not just carry the vehicle, but aggressively market it.

The all-new Cadillac ELR is the perfect fit for our luxury market. The Detroit Market is the largest Cadillac Market in the country. We have seen firsthand how important the environment is to our customers by their overwhelming positive reaction to our new Gold LEED Certified Dealership in Highland, Michigan.

The ELR’s combination of luxury, technology, eco-friendly and fuel efficiency make it a unique offering in the marketplace. We are very optimistic about the demand for such a vehicle in the Detroit Market and we have the resources, infrastructure, personnel and expertise to represent this unique vehicle aggressively.

A Growing Investment

Many Cadillac Dealers decided not to carry the ELR because of the significant investment for infrastructure, equipment and training needed to support the ELR.
