Valenti Motors was established by Fred M. Valenti in 1986, at the site of the Volkswagen/Audi franchise on Watertown's Straits Turnpike, which had existed since 1960 when Volkswagen was introduced to Connecticut. In 1989, Saab, Isuzu and Lotus were added to the line-up.  To accommodate the added businesses, a large addition and renovation were completed in 1990.  This new facility became the Valenti Auto Center. It offers one-stop Sales, Financing, Leasing, Service, Parts and Body Repairs for all makes, while providing separate display area and staffs for each product. 

Every valued customer is able to experience the best of both worlds: the experience, focus and knowledge of an exclusive dealership, combined with the savings and efficiency of a large volume operation. Some of our staff have been at this location for over 20 years, having worked for the previous dealership.  Many of our employees are automobile enthusiasts who display true dedication to the brands they represent.  At Valenti Autocenter, our mission is to enthusiastically provide the highest level of knowledgeable, courteous service possible, giving the customer a high value experience.  By doing this, our organization will continue to experience growth and success in the long run.
