don tester ford lincoln

They may not be the only family-owned dealership around, but Don Tester Ford Lincoln holds the distinction of being the only original dealership remaining in Norwalk. Don Tester opened the dealership in 1972 and his son, Scott Tester, took over the business in 1992.  Today, Scott and his wife Mary are co-owners and Mary’s son, Peter Lepley, is the general manager. 

Located on the south side of Norwalk on US 250 is their spacious lot filled with new and used vehicles. Their 34 employees can help find your new car, provide service and parts, and perform collision repairs. If you're from the area, you'll probably recognize some familiar faces. Peter tells us that 80% of their employees live in Norwalk and are well-rooted in the community. 

Community is very important to the Tester family and employees. Scott, Mary and Peter sit on several non-profit boards, and the dealership hosts “Drive One” fundraisers for local schools and the Norwalk Salvation Army. They also sponsor Trunk or Treat, an Easter Egg Hunt (April 9th this year), blood drives (next one on April 4th), and support local teams and school organizations like D.A.V.

In March 2020, VLFCU is partnering with Don Tester Ford Lincoln to offer rates as low as 2.99% APR.  See the dealership for details about this limited-time offer! You can reach them via phone at 877-722-4017, send an email to or visit the showroom at 2800 US 250 South in Norwalk, OH. Stay connected with them on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
