TRUST. INTEGRITY. HONESTY. CONFIDENCE.
Car 1 is a 4th generation, pre-owned vehicle store offering
late-model, quality, inspected vehicles. We offer a no-pressure
buying environment, and at Car 1, you deal directly with one of the
owners. No more hassles or high-pressure, commissioned sales people.
At Car 1, you get a clear price for the vehicle you're considering
and a fair trade value, not just a payment. At Car 1, you, the
customer, are in total control.
Car 1, which is family owned and operated, was established in 1999
by Larry & Aaron Baus. Although, the company is a relatively new
name in the used car market, our staff has extensive experience and
knowledge dating back to 1924.
Before establishing CAR 1, Larry was the third generation owner and
operator of Nofzinger Pontiac-GMC in Archbold, Ohio. After selling
the company in February of 1998, Larry & Aaron recognized a need for
a dealership that could provide quality, pre-owned vehicles to
consumers in a hassle-free environment. CAR 1 is that dealership.
In March of 2001, Chad Baus moved back to the area and joined the
family business. Most recently, Larry passed the torch to Chad and Aaron.
In August of 2012 they became Co-Owner's of CAR 1. Chad serves
as the company's President of Sales and Aaron serves as President of
Purchasing. Larry still works at the dealership on a daily
basis, as does his father, Ed, and some days, Chad's son, the fifth
generation, helps out.
The automobile market is fast-paced, and the needs of the consumer
have traditionally taken a back seat to a "wheel and deal" mindset.
At CAR 1, we make a conscious effort to listen to your needs first,
and then, based on our knowledge and expertise, present you with
various options, from which you can make your selection. With over
135 years of combined experience, we feel we can meet your needs and
exceed your expectations.
