Full Service Dealership at Roe Motors

July 2017

Roe MotorsRoe Motors, at the corner of 7th and F, is celebrating 34 years in Grants Pass. The family—Ross and Annette, and their son Steve and daughter Lori—moved here in 1983 from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, when they bought the GM dealership here.

“We loved the climate and the people, especially after living in Sault Ste. Marie for 17 years,” said General Manager Steve Roe. “One year, the Soo led the nation with the most snowfall of any city in the U.S. at 159 inches of snow. We love Grants Pass, and we consider the community as part of our family.”

They back that sentiment up with action, as Roe Motors supports many local nonprofit organizations, including Relay for Life, Asante Three Rivers Community Hospital, and local schools. You will often notice that the corner of 7th and F features local community attractions such as the Evergreen Bank bears and greeting card, and the Octoberfest display.

“As a family we enjoy working with people and giving back to the community,” Steve said. “Two awards we’re especially proud to have earned are the 2015 OSU Austin School for Family Harmony Business Award, and the 2016 Better Business Bureau Small Business of the Year for Oregon and SW Washington.”

Roe Motors is a full–service dealership that sells new Cadillacs, Buicks and GMC Trucks. They have used vehicles in all price ranges, including budget affordable vehicles at lower prices and GM Certified vehicles. They have a finance department that works with many different lenders. Their service department performs maintenance and repairs on most makes and models. Their body and collision center works with many different insurance companies. They also have a parts department with GM parts and accessories. Their detail department washes all customer vehicles in for service and body shop repairs.

All of the Roes have grown up in the automotive business. Ross, who is now retired, met Annette in 1951 while working as a co-op student with General Motors Institute and Buick. He started Roe Chevrolet in Sault Ste. Marie in 1967. Their four children are all employed in the automotive industry. Steve and Lori are at Roe Motors in Grants Pass, Jim works for GM in Detroit, and Brad works for a GM dealership in Portland.
