  • Gary Uftring

    Gary Uftring has been a fixture to central Illinois car buyers for many years, including before his acquisition of his first dealership in Washington. Mr. Uftring began his automotive career on the wash rack at a small dealership in Minonk, Illinois. Armed with the determination to succeed and the desire to become a top salesman, he took advantage of opportunities as a "fill in" sales consultant when the store was short staffed. When he turned 18, the owner of the dealership agreed to let him sell cars full time. Because he was so young, Mr. Uftring focused on exceptional product knowledge and a passion for cars - two traits that serve him well to this day. Over the years, Mr. Uftring has developed and/or acquired multiple dealerships in Central Illinois. However, his focus has always remained on exceptional customer service and a commitment to giving back to the community.

  • Howard Marfell
    Subaru Sales Consultant

    During my almost 15 years with Uftring, treating customers in a courteous and friendly manner has always been my top priority. The Uftring Auto Group is the most ethical dealer I have ever worked with during my 20 years in the auto industry. Helping a customer find their perfect vehicle is still one of the greatest feelings and is my goal with everyone I talk with at the dealership. Though I am proud to be born and raised in Peoria, I love taking a vacation to Gulf Coast of Florida with my wife and two wonderful children. I am also proud to be a U.S. Marine and a Freemason.
