About Us


Different From the Rest

At Exit5 Auto Group we are focused on offering a friendly and honest customer experience .  Whether you are looking to buy,  sell, or service your car - you will be glad you came to see us.

Here are a few things that make us different than other dealers in the area.

  • We pride ourselves on our transparency.
  • You deal directly with an owner or a salesperson authorized to make a deal. There’s no going back and forth with “management.”
  • We price our cars at a level that we expect to sell them.  The prices are not inflated, which results in an uncomfortable shopping experience.
  • We offer a fair price for your trade.
  • We have a state of the art service department and stand behind every car we sell.
