Hassle Free Buying* since 1965

Dave Smith Motors started as a Chevrolet dealership in Idaho's Silver Valley in 1965. In the 1980's Dave Smith started a one-price, hassle free buying* strategy in order to keep the dealership afloat during an economic downturn. The strategy, based on old-fashioned American values, worked then and continues to work today. People all over America come to Dave Smith Motors for Low, Low, Low Prices and Hassle Free Buying*.

For us it's not just about selling more cars and trucks, it's about integrity. We were the first dealership to adopt a one-price model and one of the first dealerships to go online in the 1990s.
