At Colonial Motors North, customer satisfaction is key. Owner-operator, Brian Saunders, takes pride in the vehicles he sells. His goal is to make buying a used vehicle a pleasant experience - not a stress filled one that people fear.

  • Thoroughly Inspected

    Each vehicle is personally inspected and driven by Brian to ensure that everything is working properly and that the vehicle runs great. Any concerns he may have are addressed prior to the vehicle being put out for sale. Full disclosure is provided to the customer.

  • Safety Checked

    All vehicles undergo a thorough safety inspection. From headlights to taillights, wiper blades to brake pads, Colonial Motors North makes sure your 'new' used vehicle is ready to go.

  • Trade-ins Accepted

    We have a number of wholesalers lined up who provide budget dealers with lower priced trade ins.

  • Specializing in Rust Free Arizona Vehicles

    Brian continues to work with his brother and former business partner, Jeff, who now lives in Phoenix, Arizona. Truck loads of clean, Arizona vehicles are shipped to Colonial Motors North bi-weekly.

  • Custom Search

    A number of the vehicles we buy and sell are purchased with a specific customer in mind. If you are looking for a certain automobile and want to be sure it's a nice one, contact Brian about the possibility of locating that vehicle for you. Brian attends a number of manufacturer factory auctions weekly. Or, with some lead time, there is the possibility of locating that vehicle in sunny, salt-free Arizona.

Colonial Motors North may have been founded in 2017, but this car business actually began over 4 decades ago.

Brian's parents owned and operated their own car dealership when he was young and he and his two siblings grew up immersed in the business. Upon earning a degree in Automotive Marketing, Brian and his brother, Jeff, purchased the business from their parents and ran it (Colonial Motors Ltd.) together for almost 25 years.

Brian's only break from automobiles was a ten year period when he served as Youth Director at his church in Highland. With cars basically running through his blood, Colonial Motors North was established shortly after Brian's retirement from youth ministry in the spring of 2017.

Brian's prior reputation for handling quality cars, providing great customer service, and having personal integrity carries on in this business. That, coupled with Jeff living in Arizona as an automobile wholesaler, makes Colonial Motors North the place you want to shop for your next vehicle.


Thomas Marlow Review

Brian Saunders is a great guy to do business with. I purchased a nice clean used Buick from Brian years ago and my son just sold it after 250,000 miles, and still going strong! I would buy another used vehicle from Brian with out hesitation.

Brian was super helpful and answered all of my questions! I'd recommend him to any one looking for a car.
