About Ray Catena Automotive Group

Building a Legacy

The Ray Catena Automotive Group considers it an honor to serve their customers. For nearly 60 years, Ray Catena has held steady to a core philosophy of putting the customer first. In turn, he has built a network of 20 dealerships and service centers on this foundation. Mr. Catena's New Jersey and New York luxury car dealerships represent some of the finest automotive brands on the market today - Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, BMW, Porsche, Land Rover, Jaguar, Infinit, Mini, Smart, Sprinter, Audi, Maerati, and Alfa Romeo. Ray Catena feels that anyone who enters one of his showrooms should experience a level of service and commitment like no other in the industry. Ray started from humble beginnings in 1961, opening a used car lot in Kearny, NJ and his philosophy of "If you think something is more important than the customer, think again" has never wavered. Mr. Catena believes in treating each customere with the utmost respect by the finest and most professional sales consultants providing an experience that is both enjoyable and stress-free. As Ray likes to say, "You take care of your family, your work and your life - we'll take care of your car." The end result is that Ray Catena builds one-on-one relationships with customers for generations.
