Family owned and operated, Gates Auto Group is proud that we not only form lasting relationships with our customers, but we also form strong bonds with the Connecticut communities we serve. Community involvement is an important part of our values of service, relationships, responsibility, respect and, most of all heartfelt honesty. These values are a few of the many good reasons why Gates Auto group is second to none.
We appreciate all the community has done to support our dealerships throughout the years. By partnering to build stronger communities, we hope to enhance the well-being of our loyal customers, employees and the neighborhoods where they work and live.  
We are a proud supporter of the Jolly John's Keep You Truckin' Fund. The Jolly John's Keep You Truckin' Fund helps to provide financial relief to cancer patients, as well as their families. This charity lets them worry about what is most important, getting better.  
Along with donations to the Jolly John's Keep You Truckin' Fund, we also donate to many other local charities. We believe that supporting our community is the best way to give back to them for everything they have done to help make this dealership as successful as it is.
