About Our Dealership

Dealer on Cars.com since January 2004

A little more than 25 years ago, 2 old friends were having dinner together, reflecting on their years of working for new car dealers and how they would do things differently. That December, after some hectic months of changing zoning and begging for cash, Thornton Automotive Dover was open for business with 7 cars on the lot.

...



Bill Thornton and Wayne Hawksworth founded Thornton Automotive Dover with the goal of taking care of customers better than anyone else in the business. To achieve that goal, they surrounded themselves with quality people, offering great cars at the best prices, and an unbeatable warranty and reputation.

"Since 1993,Thornton Automotive Dover has offered a wide selection of the highest quality vehicles in the area."

    I just purchased a 2014 Toyota Tacoma from Thornton Dover and I can’t believe how smooth the process was. They did everything in their power to make sure... I could get the best rate and into the ride I’ve been looking for. Chris Shade was my salesperson and the whole crew treated me like family for my entire time there. I will always recommend these guys to anyone looking for a new vehicle. The entire buying process was so hassle free and the employees are just phenomenal. Thank you Chris, Wes and all of the employees at Thornton Automotive Dover for the greatest buying process I’ve ever had!

    I bought a car their 1 year ago and pulled out the paper work and noticed that I signed for some xxxxxxxx insurance that cost over 3,000 dollars and come... to find out when I called zurich I was not on the paper work. I bought a 2013 Vehicle from the with 78,000 miles and paying 20,000 for this car now you tell me is that good business. I don't think so. I could of bought a brand new one for that price.

    Hi my name's Richard Green. I purchased a 2007 Ford f150 from THORNTON AUTOMOTIVE about a 6 weeks ago. My salesmen was JOHN RANDALL. I waited to c how... I'd like the truck first b4 I would write a review. Well I love my purchase. Now here's a story. I notice that my interior light wasn't totally working right. I called and let JOHN know. HE informed me that it was not under my warranty. So I accepted that because it was true. But it didn't end there. JOHN found me an interior light anyway and shipped it to me at no cost. That a salesman and a dealership that I want to do business with. When I look to upgrade my truck I'm going back to THORNTON and I suggest u do to. Thank you JOHN

    I just purchased a 2016 GMC from this dealership. I am a returning customer. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Most of all they want to earn business... and they are out to help the customer first and foremost. We arrived at a deal that met my needs and I could not be happier. Thanks to the entire sales and finance staff I drove home happy!! I would recommend this dealership to whoever I know is looking for a car. Lisa Heisey Dover Pa.

    I have purchased three vehicles from Thorton Automotive (previously Brookside Motors). The sales staff are friendly and helpful but not pushy. The general... manager is knowledgeable and available to customers. The experience was great as always. Thank you Carey Myers and Wes Myers!

    Andy Starner at York was fantastic to work with! He was very nice and patient, and didn't pressure me into a sale. He did a great job and was very knowledgeable... about the vehicles on the lot. He got me a good deal on a truck and I'm very happy!

    Zach at the Manchester branch got me into the exact car I wanted! They have the best used cars around, great prices, and you won't find better sales staff... anywhere! Zach explains everything so you won't be left wondering "what just happened?". They all treat you with respect and don't make you feel like you "owe" them a sale. I highly recommend Thornton Automotive!
