Bobby Rahal Acura Dealership Unveils Green-focused Service Building

Share Article

A newly constructed earth-friendly service building at Bobby Rahal Acura Dealership is now open with technology that promotes energy and water conservation for a smaller environmental footprint.

Not only do customers receive faster and more accurate repair work, but the service performed has a minimal impact on the environment.

Automotive service appointments at this Harrisburg-area Acura dealership will now be performed in a new, state-of-the-art building opening today at Bobby Rahal Acura. The facility contains the latest diagnostics and repair equipment in multiple service bays as well as separate body painting enclosures and vehicle washing area, all intended to provide more expedient and reliable service to customers than its previous maintenance site.

The new building is also more environmentally-friendly than the one it replaces. Modern low-energy lighting has been employed throughout the site to reduce electricity use without compromising brightness. A single light fixture uses the same energy in one year as a conventional light does in one day. New car wash equipment recycles water from each use to minimize excessive waste. Three special body preparation and paint booths maintain safe air circulation while containing and filtering hazardous particles used in the refinishing process.

"We realize that Acura customers are typically well-educated and care about many social issues," said Jon Miller, general manager at Bobby Rahal Acura. "That's among the reasons we chose an earth-friendly approach when designing our new service building. Not only do customers receive faster and more accurate repair work, but the service performed has a minimal impact on the environment." He added, lower daily electricity and water usage also contributes to financial savings, which over time can keep the general cost of automotive service in check.

The Acura dealership is owned by Bobby Rahal, a former professional auto racing driver and team owner who won the 1986 Indianapolis 500. Bobby Rahal Acura is located at 6694 Carlisle Pike, Mechanicsburg, Pa., 17050. The business can be contacted by telephone at (717) 790-6000 or on the web at
