A Letter from Herb
Happy Employees Will Make for Happy Clients
Spending almost every day among shiny new exotic cars, some would say it is a dream come true. Many played with Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars as a child growing up; probably pretending to be a race car driver or trading cars with friends for the Alfa Romeo, Maserati or if they were lucky, the red or blue Lamborghini. For John Andrade, becoming General Manager of the Herb Chambers Luxury Exotic Brands dealerships is truly “a dream come true” and in his words, “the highlight of my career.”

John recently moved from the Herb Chambers Porsche dealership to Bentley Boston, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars New England, LAMBORGHINI BOSTON, Herb Chambers Maserati and Herb Chambers Alfa Romeo of Boston as the Luxury Exotics General Manager. 

All Herb Chambers dealerships have something extraordinary to offer, from state-of-the-art service facilities, luxurious and comfortable waiting areas, to a large variety and stunning selection of the latest cars. Additionally, we take pride in our motivated and well-trained staff of experts. Herb Chambers offers sales consultants, finance managers, technicians, service experts and all their employees the necessary training and resources to develop a promising future through our online / on demand Herb Chambers University.

We have a talented and experienced network of general managers throughout all 60 locations with each of them embracing the Herb Chambers Way. Simply described, as dedicated to customer service, and providing an exceptional personalized automotive buying experience.

2022 Honda Pilot
By KBB.com
The 2022 Honda Pilot is a mainstay of the midsize 3-row SUV/crossover class. It does virtually everything right. It’s strong, safe, and reliable, with a spacious and well-equipped cabin that seats up to eight. It can even tackle some mild off-roading.
For 2022, Honda has introduced two new versions — the Sport and TrailSport.
Although the new Pilot Sport is the entry-level model, it comes well-equipped with heated and power-adjustable front seats, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, and 3-zone climate control.
TrailSport is an off-road-oriented version. In addition to the existing all-wheel drive system, the Pilot TrailSport’s suspension is lifted by 0.6 inches. This model has also been given aggressive tires with stronger sidewalls, orange-stitched interior leather, and various badges.
