Celebrating 90 Years of Runde Auto Group

Happy 2017! This year we are celebrating 90 YEARS of Runde Auto Group!

Runde Che90-years-logovrolet was founded by Alfred Runde in 1927 and it has been Runde family owned ever since. The business has grown to four dealerships in Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

Runde Auto Group sells new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles, as well as various makes of PreDriven vehicles.

The businRunde Brothers Cropped.jpgess is overseen by five Runde brothers, Tim, Greg, Jeff, Ron, and Mike, who are each actively involved in the day-to-day workings of the dealerships.

Alfred’s great-grandson, Jacob Puls, became the fourth generation to join the family
business in 2015.

On our website, www.RundeAutoGroup.com, you can view more than 1,800 vehicles and more than 800 Pre-Driven vehicles, fill out an online trade evaluation and finance application, and chat with a salesperson.

“More and more, people are shopping for vehicles on the Internet,” said CEO Tim Runde. “On our website, we show real prices in real time – the price you see is the price you pay.”

Rather than spending hours in a dealership, Runde’s no-nonsense approach means that customers are able to complete the transaction in half the time that it can take elsewhere.

“We want to make the process as easy as possible,” Tim said. “Buying a vehicle is a big deal, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating. We want our customers to feel comfortable with their decision as they drive off the lot.”

Along with selling and leasing new and used vehicles, all four locations offer vehicle service, body work, parts, and accessories. The service departments have loaner vehicles or pick-up and delivery services so that getting repairs on your vehicle is convenient.

Stop by one of the dealerships in East Dubuque, IL; Hazel Green, WI; Platteville, WI; or Manchester, IA, call us at 866-735-5200, or visit www.RundeAutoGroup.com.
