Building a Legacy

Motor Inn Auto Group has been family owned for 4 generations, and has been in business for over 75 years. The company started in Estherville, Iowa by Albert Heywood as a repair shop and eventually started selling Buicks and Dotsons. Robert Heywood grew the business with the Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, and Nissan franchises. Mark Heywood brought an era of location expansion, growing from one location in Estherville to 10 stores throughout Iowa. After some merging of stores, we now represent 5 locations with 10 franchises.
