What Should I Know About Lithia?

The first thing you should know about Lithia is that we're dedicated to satisfying you. This is true from the moment we hand you the keys to your new car or used car, all the way to 150,000 miles (or more) down the road when you might finally decide to let go of your much loved vehicle for something else.

To complement our stellar collection of automobiles from more than 250 dealerships, each chosen for its unique ability to match different peoples' driving styles, lifestyles, wants and needs, our state-of-the art auto repair centers are dedicated to keeping your car young at heart until the day you decide to retire it.

At the foundation of Lithia is a desire to bring drivers an assortment of new and used cars capable of transforming everyday commutes into something a little more extraordinary.

And, of course, we wouldn't be complete without our savvy, in-house teams of car financing specialists at each Lithia dealership across the country. More than just being good with numbers, they're good with people; which makes for a zero-stress auto financing experience. We think you'll agree, that's pretty hard to find.

Driven by our employees and preferred by our customers, Lithia is the leading automotive retailer in each of our markets.

Walt DeBoer founded Lithia Motors in 1946 as a Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge dealership in Ashland, Oregon. Following Walt's death in 1968, Walt's son Sid along with Dick Heimann, grew the business to include 5 stores and 19 franchises in Southern Oregon. In December 1996, this collection of dealerships was transformed into Lithia Motors, Inc., a publicly traded company (NYSE stock symbol-LAD). We envisioned a company that would continuously grow, provide great customer service, and opportunities for employees.

Lithia is one of America's largest automotive retailers featuring most domestic and import franchises. Our stores serve urban and rural populations throughout the United States. We are focused on providing customers with an honest and simpler buying and service experience. We are giving customers straightforward information so that they can make confident decisions. We believe that our local communities are our lifeblood. In addition to the employment opportunities we provide in each of our neighborhoods, we also provide contributions to charitable organizations that serve our families, friends, and customers.

If you have any concerns or would like to provide us with some feedback please let us know at 877-548-4427.  We look forward to hearing from you.
