With dealerships located in VW, VA, PA, and MD, Timbrook is a family-owned and operated dealership group offering a large selection of new car brands (Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, KIA, Nissan, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Ford, Honda). We also have 2 Honda Powerhouse stores featuring ATV’s, Motorcycles, and Side-by-Sides, and the largest stand-alone Collision Center in the Tri-State Region. In a time when many of our competitors have been sold to national companies – we’re very proud to continue our tradition of being a locally owned and operated organization that proudly employs members of the communities that surround us.

Timbrook Automotive Inc. was started by Fred E. Timbrook when he began to sell cars in June 1970 in Cumberland, MD at the Spoerl’s Pontiac Cadillac and eventually purchased the dealership on October 20, 1990. Fred J. Timbrook began working full time for his father in May 1992 and has been the company President/CEO since May 2001. Since then, we have grown from 1 location to 13.

Mission Statement


Every asset that has been entrusted to us ultimately belongs to God. We will honor him by managing all resources to the best of our ability.


The members of our team are our single greatest asset. We will maintain a fun, friendly, family-oriented environment that provides the opportunity for each individual to advance to their level of desired success.


Our community is the area that we work in, worship in, and raise our families in. We will be good neighbors and maintain a presence in our communities by being active in civic organizations, contributing to meaningful charities, and supporting local businesses.


The owners have invested a significant amount of capital in inventories, equipment, and facilities. We will operate the business in a manner that sustains growth and provides a reasonable return on their investment.


Our customers truly make it possible for us to be in business. We will earn their trust and loyalty by providing them with professional, transparent, and value-driven purchase and service experience.

Core Values


Being a person of integrity means doing the right thing in every situation. You exhibit integrity in your job when you live sound moral and ethical principles; especially when no one is watching.


It is the responsibility of each individual to make every effort to ensure the wellbeing of our team members and customers and to maintain a constant awareness of any real or potential safety hazards.


Everyone will eventually make a mistake and when you do; own up to it. Accept personal responsibility for your decisions and actions and work objectively to resolve and resulting issues quickly.


Showing consideration for the individuality of your fellow team members helps create a kinder, friendlier work environment and an atmosphere when new ideas, trust, and teamwork are valued.


Having a spirit of excellence is something to strive for in everything you do enthusiastically. It is a combination of doing the ordinary things extraordinarily well, taking pride in your work, having a can-do attitude, and going the extra mile.
