    Gary Uftring

    Dealer Principal

    Gary Uftring has been a fixture to central Illinois car buyers for many years, including before he acquired his first dealership in Washington, Illinois. Mr. Uftring began his automotive career on the wash rack at a small dealership in Minonk, Illinois. Armed with the determination to succeed and the desire to become a top salesman, he took advantage of opportunities as a “fill-in” sales consultant when the store was short-staffed. When he turned 18, the owner of the dealership agreed to let him sell cars full time. Because he was so young, Mr. Uftring focused on exceptional product knowledge and a passion for cars – two traits that continue to serve him well to this day. Over the years, Mr. Uftring has developed and/or acquired multiple automotive dealerships in central Illinois. However, his focus has always remained on great customer service and a commitment to giving back to the community.

    I have been a Sales Consultant at Uftring Subaru/Ford since December 2023. My Subaru experience began in 1980. I previously spent 33 years in Beaverton Oregon where I sold 5,800 Subarus. I’m originally from a small town called Washougal, Washington which is right across the Columbia river from Portland/Beaverton. I now live in East Peoria with my wife Veronica who is my best friend and originally from here. We have a new granddaughter and moved from Oregon in December. I own and ride a Harley-Davidson which we brought with us. I also bowl and play golf, love to fish and enjoy great meals. I chose to join the Uftring Auto Group because of their passion for customers and employees. They also have a very strong commitment to the communities they serve and their company philosophy mirrors my personal beliefs. Customers can expect a professional and courteous involvement with myself and our company. I’m passionate about the people that put their trust in me and I believe they will be my advocates. They will feel welcome and have an honest reliable sales representative. My favorite car is any Subaru. It’s one of the safest automobiles on the road and we own 3 of them. I have been driving Subaru’s for many years and you will too if you give me the opportunity.
