  • Peter Kepecs
    President
    416-635-1660

    Today, I'd like to shine the spotlight on Peter Kepecs, owner and dealer principal at Downsview Chrysler (Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Fiat), a true leader and an inspiration to many over four decades.

    I'm delighted to call Peter a friend and a colleague. In the 1980s, Peter hired me as a manager at Downsview Chrysler. Peter was a mentor at an important point in my career. Indeed, his wisdom and leadership gave me the confidence to pursue my own dreams in the car business.

    While attending Centennial College in the early 1970s, Peter began working at a local gas station. Soon afterwards, he landed a job in the service department at Downsview Chrysler. Working at a gas station and a service department taught Peter the importance of teamwork in serving customers.

    By the mid-1970s, Peter had moved into sales at Downsview, where he excelled. A few years later, he approached the owners about his ambitions to move into management and possibly become a dealer principal himself. The owners encouraged Peter to continue working hard and they helped him to achieve his goal.

    The mentorship that Peter received became a model for how he would mentor his own employees. He has always believed in treating people fairly and putting other's interests before his own.

    Throughout his career, he has been an equal-opportunity employer, hiring men and women of diverse backgrounds and providing them with the resources and opportunities to succeed.

    For Peter, ensuring that employees are happy, motivated and engaged has been a recipe for success. As a testament to his caring attitude and leadership abilities, many of Peter's employees have worked at the dealership for 20 years or longer, and many have gone on to work in management and ownership positions elsewhere.

    With its relentless focus on employee and customer satisfaction, Downsview Chrysler has achieved an impressive list of industry awards and recognition. The dealership is consistently one of the top-producing Chrysler stores in Canada and has won Chrysler's 5-Star Service Award and the Chrysler President's Award.

    Besides providing great leadership, Peter has given back to the industry in other ways. He's been a member of the MOPAR Masters Club, the Chrysler Dealer Council, and the Chrysler Advertising Council.

    His dealership has also been an excellent corporate citizen, supporting The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, Movember Canada, local sports teams and local charities.

    If there is a message Peter would like to convey, it's that the retail automotive business is a thriving and dynamic field. He says the sector is often overlooked among young people as a career option, and he would encourage students of all ages to consider a career in the business.

    He points to the Automotive Business School of Canada at Georgian College in Barrie, and Centennial College in Toronto, as two of the many post-secondary institutions that provide excellent education and training for careers within the car industry.

    Peter says a new-car dealership today consists of several businesses under one roof (sales, digital marketing, accounting, technical repairs, human resources, IT). For those who are willing to work hard and commit to their careers, the opportunities are endless.

    On behalf of the Trillium Automobile Dealers Association, it gives me great pleasure to congratulate Peter Kepecs on his outstanding career and for his many years of serving the retail automotive industry with distinction.

        I started in the car business in 1992 with Downsview Chrysler and within one year was promoted to the Sales Manager position. It is my knowledge and love of our product that brings Downsview repeat business. In many cases, I continue to assist my customers while helping their kids and their grand children find their new car. I am Downsview's Ram and Jeep specialist, so don't be shy with any questions you have. It is my duty to ensure that our Sales Staff treat you with respect and courtesy.

    Sales Manager
    416-635-1660

        My career at Downsview Chrysler began many years ago sweeping floors, stocking shelves and washing cars. After completing my Bachelor's degree in Halifax, Nova Scotia and a few separate contracts with Daimler Chrysler Financial in customer service, I traveled to Michigan to study Automotive Marketing and Management. I returned to Downsview Chrysler in the summer of 2008 where I became the top selling salesperson after only one month. By January 2010 I was promoted to my current position of sales manager, becoming one of the youngest sales managers in the city at the age of 24. In the first quarter of 2011, I was named FIAT Studio Director, responsible for our newest brand that's taken the GTA by storm, FIAT. I understand that purchasing a new or pre-owned vehicle is one of the largest purchases you will make and I hope you give us the opportunity to take care of you through your purchase decision from the moment you walk through our showroom doors to the moment you drive away in your new vehicle to when you come back for your first service appointment

    I am proud to say that I work for Downsveiw Chrysler, which is consistently one of the best Chrysler dealerships in Canada.I started in the car business over 20 years ago and have spent almost a decade with Downsview Chrysler. I started in sale and moved my way up to be the  Pre-Owned Sales Manager. 

    Downsview Chrysler was recently awarded the "Bronze Award" in "Toronto Sun Reader's Choice" in Used Car Dealership category. This success is as a result of our dedication to customer service and the quality of our pre-owned vehicles. We hold ourselves to a higher standard than most dealerships in Toronto. While many certify their pre-owned vehicles with the minimum 36 point inspection, we go above and beyond with our 105 point inspection to guarantee your safety and satisfaction. 

    We always carry a variety of cars and trucks. We specialize in Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Fiat and Jeep products but you will find on our used car lot other makes, such as Ford, GM, Honda, Toyota, Suzuki, Mercedes Benz, BMW, VW, Audi and more. We always have between 75 and 80 cars and trucks on our lot. We also have a competitive locating system which will help you to get behind the steering wheel of your dream car, whatever it may be.We work with all major lenders to get you approved and pride ourselves in our ability to help people rebuilt their credit history. 

    If you need help, just call me. I am here six days a week to serve you, your family and friends. 

    I gladly speak English, Polish, Italian and Russian to serve you better.

    Fleet Manager
    416-635-1660

    Tom Kramer sold his first car on a handwritten Bill of Sale when an AM radio was a $99 option.  He won't tell us what year he actually started but has seen the amazing changes in standard and optional safety equipment over the years. Keeping up with product knowledge on all the models from year to year has been his passion and makes him the go-to guy for both Fleet and Retail customers alike. The last 20 (or so???) years Tom has been dedicated to Commercial and Fleet Management achieving over the years both Professional Member and Master Member designation from Chrysler Canada.  Tom has that sense of humour that never makes it boring to deal with him. Fleet customers appreciate his ability to always promptly locate and deliver those hard to find cars and trucks. Commercial and Retail customers who have said they hated the thought of dealing on a car got to experience Tom's humour and ability to make it easy to buy. Tom says: "People are busy.  Matching people and vehicles is easy if you listen carefully and make the experience enjoyable. It doesn't hurt when you have amazing volume deals to offer without providing all the drama." Tom is a great addition to our Fleet Team. Feel free to call or email him to set up an appointment to make you an enjoyable, sweet deal too

    Assistant Sales Manager
    416-635-1660

    I first started at Downsview Chrysler at fourteen working in our Parts Department on my summer vacations. Once I was old enough to drive I began driving our Service Shuttle and became the head of our Pre-Delivery-Inspection Department. Working in these positions as well as working at Chrysler Financial in the Lease Maturities Department has given me an invaluable education in the car industry. I use the knowledge I've gained in my different positions to provide my customers with unparalleled service. If a client requires assistance in Service or Finance I am always there to help. I believe this is what sets me apart from other Salespeople. I have a vested interest in Downsview Chrysler and I know the way for our dealership to continue its success is by providing my customers with a full service experience. I have been Downsview Chrysler's Top Salesperson for the last three years in a row. There is no doubt that my success is due to a dedication to product knowledge and the care to ensure that you are choosing the right vehicle for you!

    I started selling vehicles with Downsview Chrysler in 1988 when we were at our old location at Keele and Wilson. This was a short 5 years after moving to Toronto from Jamaica in 1983. Since coming here, I am heavily involved in the Carribean Community - participating in events such as Caribana, Jambana, and various Caribbean pageants. I am also involved in many Caribbean organizations, such as, Jamaican Ex Soldier Association, Old Harbor Area Association, Jamaica Day Association, Pike Bryce PSA Association - just to name a few. 


    I am also a member of the fraternity. 

    Most of my customers are repeat and referrals. I will gladly come to you to earn your business. 

    Amen. So let it be.

I believe in working hard for my customers and paying attention to their wants and needs. It is all these things - along with always being the first on the showroom floor and the last to leave it that has brought me success.

    I moved to Toronto with my family in the winter of 2011 and after getting settled I started my career at Downsview Chrysler in October 2012. I believe what sets me apart from other salespeople is that I genuinely enjoy my job! I love helping people find the car that they need. There are so many different options and colours and I really enjoy building the dream car for my customers. My favorite vehicles in the showroom are the Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 - they are truly the best in their class.


    I choose to come work at  Downsview Chrysler because I like the family atmosphere and I know that we are selling a quality product. I know you will chose Downsview Chrysler because we always treat our customers with kindness, respect and professionalism. It is my pleasure to assist my customers, like my friends, in English, Russian, Turkish, and Tatar.

    I don't think enjoyable or fun are adjectives that people normally use to describe buying a car......I aim to change that! I believe that finding the right vehicle for you can and should be a good time. If it isn't, we're probably doing it wrong. I started at Downsview Chrysler in October of 2016 because it is an established family business with integrity and heart. Everyone at Downsview genuinely cares about their customers and it is because of that they also become family. It is with this honest and positive attitude that I approach every customer and dedicate my efforts to make sure they love their new vehicle and the buying experience. I am upbeat, energetic, caring person and this comes through in waves to my customers. It is because of this that I quickly became one of Downsview Chryslers' Fiat Specialists and top sales people, which is supported by the sales of Downsview's multi-generational customers and the next generation too. I am born and raised in Toronto and I love driving my own Jeep Wrangler, that was passed down to me from my grandmother, to the golf course on a Sunday when I'm not at the store. 

    Remember this, I am not just here for the sale of the vehicle, but for the life of it, and the vehicle after. I am dedicated and enjoy welcoming every customer into the Downsview Chrysler family.

    I came to Canada in August of 2016 from Dubai to start a new life in Canada. I was told this is a country of opportunity and that's the truth. I tried different business when I arrived but soon after I decided that I should follow my passion and take the opportunity of selling cars at Downsview Chrysler in June of the 2017. I knew that I wanted to be in the car business, but there are lots of dealerships that I could have worked for. In the end, the decision to join the Downsview Chrysler team happened because it was obviously a place I could start a career. Most places have a very short term staff, here one day - gone the next, or they stay for only a few months and don't really build relationships. I noticed how Downsview's Sales Team is filled with members that have been here for ten, twenty, thirty and even forty years! The success of Downsview has come from the employees commitment to their customers and I am excited to build my own customer relationships that I can service for the years to come. If you are looking for an energetic, passionate, professional and courteous salesperson, I am your man. Not only will I give you the best experience during the sale, I will continue to be here to help you in service and to be the contact for any of your automotive needs.

        I moved to Canada in May 2014 with my wife from Iran. I started in dry cleaning sales but after success in that area I knew that I wanted to try something that would more challenging, more fun, and more specific to my interests. I decided to apply to Downsview Chrysler because of its great location and great reputation in the GTA.  

        I am a new father (as of two days before writing this) and I am so excited for her future in this great country because I know she will have lots of friends and a good life. I am looking forward to the day when I can go for a drive with her in a new Jeep Grand Cherokee. I have fond memories of Jeeps (and Fiats) back home and I look forward to making more here in Canada.

        I love the car business because it is really the people business. It gives me pleasure to help people find the car that makes them feel safe, feel strong, feel fulfilled and feel happy to drive. I genuinely care about my clients happiness and I know that they are happy when driving one of our Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram or Fiat products.
