Our Story & Our Future!

Since Clifford E. Knudsen and his brother, Wayne G. Knudsen, opened the dealership in 1939, we've steadily grown into one of the region's best dealerships, regardless of brand! They set out with a goal to make the Coeur d'Alene area the best place on earth to live, work, and raise a family. Continuing to pursue this goal, Clifford's son, C. Wayne Knudtsen, became the dealer in 1955 and after 40 years at the helm, his daughter Eve, was appointed dealer in 1995. Today, Eve and her daughter, Lauren, operate the business together and remain committed to the reason their family started doing business nearly 85 years ago, by devoting time and resources to the community and engaging with our employees.

We believe that empowering, collaborating with, and recognizing the performance of our team, in conjunction with providing excellent customer service, will allow Knudsen Auto Group to grow and thrive for at least the next 80 years. Our Mission is that "Knudsen Chevrolet will achieve growth through our passion in our relationships and service to each other, our customers, and the community." If this is a legacy you want to be part of, please take a look at our open position on the Careers page and apply today!
