John Tacchetti is the proud owner of Jean Brown Automotive. John grew up washing cars at a Datsun/Nissan dealer owned by his parents, Jean and Joe. John’s father started in the car business in 1948 selling new Buicks in Washington D.C. Joe then spent a few decades finding his niche in the car business and by the early 1970’s, found a permanent home for the dealership in Ellicott City.
When John’s father passed, he took a break from the car business but his love for cars continued unabated. After years of missing the auto industry, John decided he would recreate his family-owned and operated dealership, but, only if his store could truly represent a place where he could feel comfortable as a customer. He began building his dream to create an establishment where he could buy a product that he loves and trusts, and importantly, an environment that doesn’t include the dreaded and antiquated negotiation process.
John’s obsession with cars and his experience with driving everything on the road, lead him to specialize in pre-owned Honda vehicles. He has always loved Honda’s engineering, dynamics, and durability. Best of all, John hand picks every vehicle that he sells and puts them through a strict certification process in order to be TAC Certified. Jean Brown Automotive’s mission is to sell vehicles that are truly economical and can last 300,000 miles or more!
