DENVER, May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AutoNation, Inc. (NYSE: AN), America's largest automotive retailer, is celebrating a record-breaking 11 million vehicles sold by thanking its community partners and customers, those who made this momentous occasion possible. In 11 markets from coast to coast, the company is surprising 11 customers and handing them the keys to their new vehicles, with no payments.
It was Pablo Correa and his wife's lucky day when the management team at AutoNation Buick GMC Park Meadows handed them the keys to their brand new 2017 Encore, payment free. Mr. Correa is a missionary and his wife is an interpreter, and they have devoted their lives to helping others.
On Saturday, May 20th, also in celebration of the company's historic milestone, AutoNation will donate to Brent's Place in Aurora, Colorado, a Chrysler ProMaster Passenger Van.
