CJ's Auto Store LTD is a small family owned Dealership that got its start on January 3rd of 2011. Opened by Larry and Jason Rothenbuhler in North Toledo. We had a big vision with not much to lose. Our store is founded on really trying to help our Customer's to get into a nice vehicle without the stress of going to a Buy Here Pay Here dealership. We wanted Customer's to have a vehicle they could and do enjoy, rely on, and is dependable for their family. We also wanted to give them the opportunity to ESTABLISH or RE-ESTABLISH their current credit situation.
Larry is a 20+ year veteran in the Car Business. Starting off at New Car Franchise stores for several years. He then moved onto working for Credit Acceptance which is a Bank that works with Customer's with less than perfect credit. From there he partnered up with a couple of great Used Car Dealers in the local area before deciding in 2010 to make the move to be a Dealer Owner. Larry sold his 1967 Chevy Chevelle to get together the funds needed to open his doors. He went on the look for the right location. Larry found the current CJ's Auto Store LTD location and moved forward. Having to get up and running as quickly and inexpensively as possible, Larry learned by doing. He contacted the City of Toledo and got all the proper permits, he linked up with a Lender to get him going on the money to buy some cars, he hired 1 employee in the beginning to help him take care of the customer's needs. Now 10 years later and many customer's later we are still going strong.
Jason has been in the business now for about 10 years. His background is in collections. He is happy to be working in something other than collections now. Jason does all the Title work and has become a Notary for the State of Ohio. He has learned to how to do Finance and enjoys getting our Customer's the best deal possible. Jason works hard to keep the Dealership and his family under control. Juggling 3 kids, 4 sports, and gymnastics every week.
CJ's Auto Store LTD looks forward to 10 more years serving the NW Ohio area customer's to get a fair deal on a reliable Car, Truck, SUV, Van or any other vehicle we have available. Come out and become part of the CJ's Auto Store LTD Family.
