Jay Sawyer - CEO/GM

757-410-2400 - Jay@Backroadsauto.com

Jay has been in the automotive industry for over 12 years and strives to be one of the leading used car dealers in Virginia! Stop by and see him and his team and let them go to work for you. 

When you buy from our small business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping Brian's daughter get karate lessons, my son get his soccer team jersey, a mom or dad put food on the table, a family pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college. Our customers are our shareholders, and THEY are the ones we strive to make happy.

Thank you for supporting our families
