We have very humble beginnings. L.O. Gates started his first dealership as a side business from his grocery store all the way back in 1928. We are still a family owned and operated business, and even though we now have several dealerships located in the heart of Michiana, we are still humble. This is now a third and fourth generation business, and even with all that has happened, we still have never forgotten about our beginnings. We will always provide you with the quality automotive experience that you are looking for at Gates Automotive Group.
