Community First Auto Center Celebrates Four Years in Lewis County


Community First Auto Center (CFAC) will be holding their fourth anniversary sale July 21-24. “We’ll have amazing deals,” reports owner George Votaw. “There will be a fresh inventory of cars and trucks. We’ll have big discounts and are able to provide credit union and bank financing.”

Now in its fourth year, CFAC was started by George as a family business with his son, Ryan, and daughter, Brianna. The goal was to put a different twist, one focused on family, on the business of selling cars.

Every year CFAC has a party to celebrate their anniversary. “Each year it gets bigger and more fun,” says Votaw.

There will be live radio remote from KMNT with radio host, Ryan Trotter, giving away the usual prizes such as concert tickets. CFAC will also be giving away their own exciting prizes.

“The whole side of our building is always filled with items – tents, TVs, all kinds of things. Some people come just to enter the drawings, and that’s okay,” Votaw says.

When you visit the anniversary sale and check out the car of your choice, you’ll find something no other dealer has. One of the unique aspects of CFAC is their “Get to Know Us!” board. The board contains a booklet with all the information about each and every car, such as price, service history, and all receipts of work CFAC had performed on the vehicle. The booklet also holds the complete CARFAX report, which CFAC just switched to using this past April.

“The consumer knows and understands these reports so they are much more useful than the industry reports that most lots use. It’s really transparent, people can really see what they’re buying. They love it,” explains Votaw.

Votaw looks forward to the event with anticipation. “It’s so fun just to meet people who haven’t been here before, and to see loyal customers return for the event. We’ll have drinks and snacks and it’ll be a great time.”

You’ll find Community First Auto Center located at 1051 NW Louisiana Ave. in Chehalis, next to K-Mart. You can get in touch with them by phone at 360-748-3512, or visit the Community First Auto Center website.
