With an inventory of more than 800 vehicles on the lot at any given time, the Stephen Wade family of dealerships is the community’s one-stop destination to buy used cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs at attractive prices. In fact, marketing director Herb Anderson said most are priced so well they only stay on the lot for a week or two. 

Not every used car is ready to make the Stephen Wade team, however. Vehicles must pass a rigorous 101-point inspection to ensure they qualify to carry the dealership’s name before becoming available to potential buyers. 

“We want to make sure our cars stand tall,” Anderson said. “We stand behind the cars we sell.”

For added peace of mind, Stephen Wade Auto Center also offers protection and warranty packages to help keep vehicles in top condition.

Along with sales, Stephen Wade Auto Center provides comprehensive service. Each of their seven service centers is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to assist in repairs, oil changes, tire rotations, brake replacements and much more.

Whether a car needs routine maintenance or major repairs, the factory-trained mechanics ensure the job is performed efficiently and correctly the first time – and with genuine parts. Technicians are up-to-date on the latest service bulletins, recalls, parts changes, warranty issues and service procedures. Customers can simply leave their vehicle for service and take a complimentary shuttle home, to work or wherever they need to go within the St. George area.

If you’re looking to hit the road this summer in a new set of wheels, Anderson said now is the perfect time to upgrade and get top dollar for your trade-in. 

Everyone at Stephen Wade Auto Center takes pride in offering a convenient, flexible and no-pressure sales experience. Choose to shop online and finish the paperwork at the dealership, do it all in person or browse and buy entirely from the comfort of home.

“We make it really easy for the customer to make their purchase,” Anderson said. “Come in and look around, then buy when you’re ready.”  

Anderson said Stephen Wade Auto Center team members go above and beyond to serve their customers in the community. When you visit any of their St. George dealerships, you become part of the Stephen Wade family.
