The original Tower Auto opened its doors in 1967 in, what was then, a little mill town called Blawnox. We acquired the dealership in 1977 (Tower Auto Sales). I was fresh out of Central Catholic High School and only 19 Years old. The former owner agreed to stay on for a period of time to show me the ropes...and did he ever! The used car business was pretty wild and wooly back then and he taught me all the tricks of the trade, most of which were bad. This was the best Used Cars 101 education that I could have received. Once I knew all the wrongs, the rights just seemed easier. After about a year and a half, I had the presence and the ammunition I needed and I also knew what had to be changed to better TAS moving forward. I realized then, and still do today, 35 years later, that in the end, it is always better to JUST DO IT RIGHT!

About Us

Since 1977, I have honed my automotive skills and surrounded myself with the best possible staff given their appointed positions. None of whom have ever worked anywhere else within the automotive industry and many of them have been with me for 20+ years. We all know the auto business from all aspects. Our cars are all deliberately hand picked with over 35 years of experience and thousands of vehicles bought and sold.

*Our sales crew goes out of their way to aid you in the selection process with no stress, gimmicks or shady tactics... It's not a circus! The other guys do the "push, pull, drag it in" sale. That doesnt take place at Tower Auto Sales. Just an honest, simple, friendly, "to the point," sales approach. At TAS, we don't even request your phone number so we will not hound or chase you. We are here to help if you let us. The choice is only YOURS!

*Our office staff is also geared to satisfying the customer 100%. Your paperwork will already be done for you when you come to pick up your car. You will completely understand what you are signing and how the money breaks down; no fine print. We use 5 different banks with very competitive rates and simple applications. We also work with you if you chose to use your own lender. Our entire staff is here to help in every way possible!

*Our service department plays by the same rules. They do it right the first time before the car is even delivered. This way, we avoid comebacks with big lists. Nobody likes lists! As for service after the sale, I admit, we are biased. We will repay you for your loyalty if you purchased a vehicle from us. We will give you a different price structure and we never witch-hunt to find problems to pad a bill. We dont try to find problems, we simply fix the problems.

*Our detail and body shops have the same approach: Do it right the first time and make it look as new as possible = No comebacks!! Move forward at all times and EVERYBODY'S HAPPY!

Our Cars

The majority of new car sales are based on leasing, especially the higher end models. That gives me, and most importantly, YOU, a wonderful buying opportunity. I am able to carefully handpick three year old vehicles coming off a lease, directly from the manufacturer. They are "one owner" cars that still have factory warranty and low miles due to the lease restrictions. These are well cared for cars with clean titles and in many cases, can be as much as half of the original price when new! Once they hit the ground at TAS that is where our many years of experience come in. The service guys pull them into the shop to make sure they are structurally sound and free of any previous major damage. Keep in mind, they are used cars, so vehicles with minor bumps or bruises are then given to our body shop guys to do their thing and bring them back to their original beauty.

All cars are test driven to mechanically evaluate them and address any immediate issues. They are then washed and made show-able. After you make your selection, we then do a complete service check of fluids, mechanical, convenience and options systems, tire check, plus state inspection with stickers good for the next year. The car then moves to the detail shop for a complete buff, wax, shampoo or better known as the "beauty treatment." At that point, it is ready for delivery at whatever time is convenient for you. Serviced, cleaned, paperwork done... READY TO GO!

Why We Shine

Because TAS is not a franchised dealer, we are not bound by hokey guidelines and business practices. We also are not restricted to certain brands. This enables us to give you The Luxury of Choice! TAS can have a $100,000 Bentley in stock at the same time as a $3,000 Honda, and we will treat you the same, regardless of which one you choose. We have come to know that people like getting a new car, they just hate the drawn out process they have to go through to get to the final sale. At TAS there is no process. Its all about YOU; we are just there to help!

We know the best models for each category whether its economy, performance, price range, luxury, or just everyday driving. TAS knows because of our years of experience and trial and error. We have dealt with all models and can pick out the good from the bad and are happy to share that knowledge with you. In essence, TAS has done all the homework to make your car buying experience fast and easy. We have to like the vehicles enough to buy and pay for them before we make them available to you. So use our knowledge; its free, and can save you a lot of time and money! We have a great inventory of vehicles. We also work with trades. No matter what you have to trade, its worth something and we will be fair.

If its easier, call us. Unlike most dealers we are happy to give quotes over the phones. It can save everybody a lot of time. We will be honest with you, just be honest with us. We know that the difference between being good and great is in the details... We are detail oriented! Our team at Tower Auto Sales is honest, knowledgeable, easy and fun! So, stop by and "cut one out of the herd!" In other words... JUST BUY IT!
