The Pohanka story is an interesting one. Our founder, Frank S. Pohanka ran away from his Bronx home at an early age. It wasn’t long before he became a stable boy on Long Island, and eventually became a successful jockey. His high-speed jockeying career eventually transitioned into a career as a successful GM mechanic and service representative. Never one to rest on his accomplishments, in 1919 Frank opened his first dealership and service center in Washington D.C. That one dealership has since grown to a network of 17 dealerships and 11 collision centers that stretch across the Delmarva Peninsula. If you live in the Delmarva area, then we are likely just a short drive away.

Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury has always believed in giving back to its community, and in 2009, in the midst of a country-wide recession, we doubled down on that effort with the Pohanka Pays It Forward program. Since the program’s creation, we have donated to over 750 charitable organizations totaling more than $1,000,000! Our commitment to this community here on the Delmarva Peninsula is strong. We may be a large organization now, but we are still very much a local one, and when you come to Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury, and do business with us, you can feel good knowing that you are supporting a pillar in your community.

With 17 dealerships, it may come as no surprise that we have a wide variety of brands in our wheelhouse. In fact, we have Chevy, Acura, Honda, Hyundai, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota, Volkswagen, and when it comes to our used inventory, we have even more brands! We can help you find the new or used compact, hatchback, sedan, crossover, SUV, minivan, or truck that you need. We even have a wide range of commercial vehicles available so that our business can support your business. If we somehow don’t have what you are looking for, let us know, and we can likely find it for you.

You’ve come this far, you’ve read about our history, you’ve learned about our commitment to this community, and you might even be able to picture our vast inventory, but you haven’t learned about our people or our way of doing business. In some regards, we have saved our best for last. At Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury, we have a few core beliefs that drive our team and our business. To start with, we believe in doing things right the first time, whether it’s a sale or service. We strive to make it easy for our customers and for our employees, because buying a car doesn’t have to be difficult. Lastly, we find ways to do it better, faster, and cheaper without sacrificing quality or service.
