Eisenhour Motor Sales among GM dealers to close

(WTOL) - "It's sorta a kick in the pants to find out the people who you've worked for all these years don't want you anymore. It's not been a good day," said Jack Eisenhour with Eisenhour Motor Sales, Inc.

Eisenhour Motor Sales is just one of more than 1,000 dealers across the country who learned GM was ending their franchise agreement. 

In a phone press conference, GM leader Mark Laneve says most of the dealerships who received the letter were already struggling, losing too much money. He says although dealers are an asset to the company, too many can hurt it. "We got too little industry right now, and too little sales that we have to contend with. What is critical is we have a healthy, viable, dealer network."

At Eisenhour, Jack admits times have been tough, but he says no more than other places. There are eight employees, and Jack says they will continue to stay open selling used cars, and servicing others. "We've enjoyed it. It's been good. People have been good to us. Hopefully, we can continue serving."

Jack knows a company that's been open for 80 years knows how to survive, and that's exactly what Eisenhour Motor Sales plans to do.

    The City of Toledo is apologizing to a man after they billed him for cutting grass on public property near his home.  Anthony Davis and his wife have lived in their home in south Toledo since 1995. The grass in the cul-de-sac outside their home is often overgrown. Davis normally does not mind cutting it himself.  "Just so that we don't look like we're living in some type of jungle or something," Davis said. However, recently the grass grew up to his knees. He...

    THIS AIRS IN THE A BLOCK OF THE 6 TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled against the city of Toledo when it comes to the use of red light cameras. But, this doesn’t change the ability for local law enforcement to handout tickets to drivers from this technology. The city of Toledo was challenging a law put in place that reduced the amount of money it got from the state because of the use of these cameras. Just last year, the&...
