"North or south, there's no better deal!"
 
This successful advertising slogan has not only embedded itself into the landscape of our minds, it also touts the two locations of C. Wimberely Auto Group, which employs more than 60 people.

 While there have been years when new vehicle sales verses used were 25 to 75, this year it is closing in on 50 percent, said Chuck Wimberley Sr., president of the auto mall. "Leasing has made a strong come back. Manufacturers are offering great rebates on leases, as well as purchases."

 
"National campaigns by Ford and General Motors are driving customers into our showrooms," Chuck Sr. said. "Rebates are strong. Financing rates are very attractive. We also have several programs offered only by C. Wimberley. Any new or pre-owned vehicle purchase includes up to four oil changes and tire rotations are free. Buy four tires and the rotations are also free for as long as you own the vehicle. Service customers also receive a free car wash, while our Body Shop offers a lifetime guarantee on its paint work."
 
"The internet has removed all boundaries," Chuck said. "Customers come to us from all over Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. You can view our inventory anytime, anywhere by visiting CWAutoMall.com."
 
The Ford F150 continues to lead the pack, with the Chevy Silverado a strong competitor. "Trucks, SUVs and hybrid vehicles are the future," Chuck said. Self-driving cars are hot. Sixty-seven percent of adults would opt for a self-driving car, rather than having their child ride in a vehicle, driven by a stranger."
 
Chuck said this is an exciting time for C. Wimberley, which is looking to expand both the Ford and GM service departments. "The GM parts department has also outgrown its area with the body shop at the Ford store looking to add another paint booth and expand its repair area."
