Dorsett Automotive has been serving the Wabash Valley for over 54 Years.
It all began with its founder E.R. Dorsett in May of 1958. The company started at 1467 Lafayette Ave in Terre Haute IN under the name of Dorsett Auto Sales Inc.
E.R. Dorsett retired in 1972 after running the business for 14 years. His son L.R. Dorsett took ownership and began to make improvements to his fathers used car lot. In 1975 Dorsett Auto Sales Inc. was remodeled and expanded, offering their customers a service and detail department.
In 1997 Brian Dorsett, after retiring from Major League Baseball, returned to his hometown in Terre Haute IN to work in the family business. Brian had a dream to take the business from a used car lot to a new car franchise and in 2000 his dream became a reality by obtaining the Mitsubishi Franchise.
Dorsett Auto Sales Inc. transitioned from the North Side of Terre Haute to the South Side of Terre Haute at 105 West Mayfair Drive Terre Haute IN, 47801. Part of the transition to the south side was Brian becoming Dealer Principal of Dorsett Mitsubishi and President of Dorsett Auto Sales Inc.
Dorsett Mitsubishi served the Wabash Valley for 11 years providing Terre Haute with the same great service and care that it was founded on, and in February of 2012 the Dorsett Dream grew even bigger. Dorsett Auto Sales Inc. purchased Terre Haute Nissan/Hyundai and changed the Name by expanding to Dorsett Automotive.
With a New Mitsubishi and Hyundai Building currently under construction, Dorsett Automotive has become southern Indiana's premier dealership, providing the Wabash Valley with "The driving experience you want, backed by the service you can trust"
