A Family Owned and Operated Local Business, The Preferred Auto Story

Spotlight of ford models for sale here at Preferred Automotive Group

Preferred Automotive Group was started in 1989 by Jay Leonard, as a small lot on Speedway Drive in Fort Wayne, Indiana. From a small beginning with just 3 employees and 6 vehicles, Preferred Automotive Group now has 3 different locations in Fort Wayne. As their success continued, and the area began to recognize the high-quality vehicles, Preferred Automotive Group’s reputation took hold in the greater Fort Wayne community. While they have won multiple awards over the years, they are most proud of one: The "Business of Integrity" given by the Better Business Bureau, of NE Indiana. This is not only a huge professional achievement, but a personal one as well. Jay Leonard has always prided himself and his business in providing the community with the best possible vehicle, at the best price. One of his personal mottos is, “Anyone can sell you one car. It’s our goal to sell you cars for a lifetime.”, and is why they aim to make sure that each and every customer is treated as family during and after the sale.

Today, Preferred Automotive Group has 3 sales locations in the Fort Wayne area, and 2 state-of-the-art service centers. All of their vehicles are handpicked, and are mostly one owner with zero accidents. Prior to being offered for sale, their Service Departments inspect every vehicle and make the necessary repairs, to ensure the most value for their customers.

Five years ago, Jay Leonard had his son join him in the family business. His son, Jake, has grown up around the business and knew at an early age he wanted to carry on the legacy that his father had built. Jake takes great pride in the family business, and works hard to maintain the A+ Accredited rating that the dealership has with the Better Business Bureau. Jay and his wife, Ann, are excited that Jake and his wife, Ashley, along with their daughter, Penelope, are following in the family footsteps, and continuing to make sure that Preferred Automotive Group keeps the reputation that has been established the past 30+ years.

Jay and Jake run the business and have found a couple keys to their success; they keep their priorities in order, and have a simple philosophy, “God, Family, and Work, in that order.” “Our goal is to treat each employee and customer as family.” We hope to soon welcome you to the Preferred Automotive Group Family, and thank you for visiting us today.
