Employee Spotlight: Lonell “LT” Turner

CASTLE BUICK GMC

SERVICE MANAGER

LT has been a great asset to our team as a Service Advisor, and we’re happy to announce his promotion to Service Manager! An 11 year veteran of Castle Automotive Group, LT has shown much hard work and dedication to get to this point in his career. It all started in 1997 when LT got a job with Montgomery Wards Auto Express, then he spent 11 years at Firestone and another 11 years at Grossinger Auto Group!

Why the automotive industry? He was interested after purchasing a 1974 Pontiac Grandville for $500. After selling this car for $100 because he thought he blew the motor, he said “45 minutes later, that same car drove by me as quiet as a church mouse.” When he learned how simple it was to fix the problem, he decided he'd never let that happen to him again.

More About LT:

Outside the dealership, LT enjoys riding his Harley-Davidson Street Glide and spending time with his family. He also practices martial arts and values his health & fitness. His favorite car? The 2006 Chevy IROC Z… and (of course) that 1974 Pontiac Grandville.
