C.A.R.S. Inc. currently has over 40 dealerships primarily located in the western United States. Started as a finance and insurance development company, C.A.R.S. Inc. has grown to provide its dealers with various aftermarket products for the automotive industry.
C.A.R.S. Inc. was incorporated in 2002 by Gary Foster, its founder. Mr. Foster accumulated over 30 years experience in the automobile business, ranging from sales, to finance and insurance, to the general manager of several dealerships. In 2013, C.A.R.S. Inc. decided to return to its development roots with the sale to one of the top dealership development companies in the industry, American Financial & Automotive Services, Inc.
American Financial & Automotive Services, Inc. has assisted dealers in maximizing profits for over 35 years. Exceeding clients' expectations has been the driving force behind American Financial's success. The specialized training their representatives receive, their extensive hands-on experience, and their total commitment to increasing dealership profits are the reasons that the American Financial team is known throughout the industry as "Your Automotive Leaders."
As part of the American Financial Family of Companies, C.A.R.S. Inc. will provide the personal level of service that partnered dealers have grown to expect. In addition, dealers will now have access to a number of products and services that were previously unavailable to C.A.R.S. Inc. dealership partners.
