In 1935, Charles Gaunce, Jr. and two associates incorporated their auto dealerships to create Central Maine Motors. Little did they know that more than 75 years later, the seeds they had planted at 198 College Avenue in Waterville, Maine, would grow and blossom into a thriving auto group.
Starting off selling Cadillac, LaSalle and Pontiac vehicles, Central Maine Motors took off in the early ’90s. In 1991, Dodge and Toyota joined the family, as did Chrysler and Plymouth the following year. In 1994, Buick, Oldsmobile and GMC were added to the group, followed by Jeep and Chevrolet in 1997 and 1998, respectively. Through all these changes, including the addition of new buildings and the renovation of existing properties to better serve the community, Central Maine Motors Auto Group maintained its focus on personal relationships and a positive car-shopping experience.
Today, the Central Maine Motors Auto Group consists of three separate Waterville, Maine car dealerships offering vehicles from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Toyota, Scion, Chevrolet and Buick. With employees who have been with the company for more than 30 years and a history that stretches back for decades, Central Maine Motors Auto Group has become a pillar of the community. Though the going hasn’t always been easy, at Central Maine Motors Auto Group, our focus on customer service has seen us through thick and thin, and while others have failed, we have flourished.
