The Hondru family of dealerships began in 1981, when Peter Hondru purchased Phillips Ford Sales in Manheim, PA. The dealership quickly earned a reputation for its great service and an unbeatable buying experience. In 1987, Manheim Chrysler Plymouth was added to the Hondru family of dealerships. The dealerships continued to grow with the addition of Elizabethtown Dodge in 1989.
In 1991, the GMC Truck franchise was added to the Manheim Chrysler dealership. The dealerships continued success is due to its outstanding employees and loyal customers, as well as our reputation for honest and dependable service and sales. In 1998, the Hondru dealerships grew again with the addition of E-Town Chevrolet, Oldsmobile Pontiac located next door to E-town Dodge. In addition to outstanding sales and service departments, the Hondru Dealerships include one of the largest fleet departments in Pennsylvania and one of the finest, state-of-the-art body shops.
The Hondru Dealerships strongly support school districts, fundraisers, sporting events, and many other community-sponsored programs through various donations. We realize a community is only as strong as the support it receives.
The “Hondru Experience” is everything you expect it to be and more.
Recently, the Hondru Group of dealerships have changed their names to better help our customers logically connect that the dealerships are owned by the same owner, Peter Hondru. From now on what was formerly known as Phillips Ford will now be called Hondru Ford of Manheim, E-Town Dodge will be known as Hondru Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/RAM of E-town, and E-Town Chevrolet Pontiac will be known as Hondru Chevrolet of E-town. Sauder Chevrolet was recently purchased and will be re-named Hondru Chevrolet of Manheim.
