About us


We stock over 500 pre-owned vehicles, all priced thousands below market value!

Our store operates at a very high volume, in fact we are proud to be the highest volume independent auto dealer in the state of Connecticut.

To keep overhead costs to a minimum, we maintain a small showroom, with most of our vehicles kept off-location in storage lots.

Less overhead means less markup on our vehicles, and greater savings for our customers.


We sell over 4,000 vehicles each year!

We are the only independent dealer in the state with a nationally recognized Certified Pre-Owned program

We offer financing for all credit tiers, with extensive expertise with low and no-credit buyers.

We offer a variety of extended warranty plans, from basic powertrain to full coverage.

Many of our customers are out-of-state.

Our post-sale customer satisfaction rate is over 98%


A Better Way Wholesale Autos opened its doors in 1999, operating in a small facility down the road from our current showroom in Naugatuck, CT. From day one, our goal has been to offer shoppers the greatest possible value in a pre-owned vehicle. We have enjoyed many years of new and repeat customers, referrals, and overall growth - all while developing long-standing relationships with a lengthy list of banks and lending institutions, warranty companies, and parts suppliers.

In 2008 we finished construction of our new showroom located at 423 Rubber Avenue. Since then we have scaled our operation to offer vehicles at true wholesale prices to a much larger customer base. We have grown to become CT's highest volume auto dealer, but we have kept our goal the same: to offer the greatest value available on the used vehicle market.

We offer a variety of financing and extended warranty options for all credit tiers and budgets.  Our extensive experience and high sales volume will benefit you, as we can provide desirable financing options that most used car dealers can't!

We are a certified NAPA AutoCare Center, with ASE Certified Technicians, servicing all makes and models - foreign and domestic.  Each of our vehicles undergoes a rigorous pre-delivery safety inspection to ensure it will be worry-free from the moment you pick it up.  We also provide all levels of mechanical repair service on-site - from oil changes to drivetrain and electrical issues, our experienced technicians will help get your vehicle back on the road as soon as possible.

Behind the scenes, we put many hours of work into purchasing and pricing over 100 vehicles every week.  We strive to take the guess work out of your shopping experience and we can confidently say that we offer the lowest haggle-free prices and the largest selection you'll find in one place.

A Better Way Wholesale Autos proudly supports various charities and local organizations including the Wounded Warrior Project, St. Jude Children's Hospital, local schools and police unions.  We believe in giving back to the community that has helped us grow to become the state's highest volume pre-owned auto dealer.


Simply said, we are not your typical dealership.  If you've shopped at other dealers before, be prepared for a different experience.  We are a high volume store focused on stocking a wide variety of vehicles, offered at the lowest prices possible.  As a result of our busy environment, the buying process can sometimes be confusing for those expecting a more traditional experience.  Below are some tips to make sure your visit to A Better Way goes smoothly.

Call ahead
We sell as many as 30 vehicles each day.  While we make every effort to keep our website up to date, a phone call to our sales department prior to coming in can confirm the availability of the vehicle you are interested in.

With a diverse and extensive inventory, even if the vehicle you're calling about is under deposit, we may have another in stock that will fit your needs. Ask your sales representative about similar inventory if the car you want has been sold.  You can also use the CarFinder tool to be automatically notified when the vehicle you're looking for comes in.

Come prepared
Have information about the vehicle(s) you are interested in ready, including a stock number if possible.

If you are planning on financing your purchase, bringing important information like proof of residence (such as a utility bill sent to your address), proof of income (recent paychecks/paystubs), and your co-signer, if applicable, can help speed up the process and eliminate the need for extra visits.  Please bring a valid driver's license if you intend to purchase or test drive a vehicle.

On our busier days, be prepared for a short wait
We have over 20 sales representatives on duty during our business hours. However, our customers sometimes outnumber our sales staff, so there may be a short wait for the next available salesperson.  We know your time is valuable, so we do our best to coordinate our staff to minimize this. We provide a television, free refreshments and Wi-Fi in our waiting area.

Out of state buyers welcome
Many of the vehicles we sell go to other states across the country. We have extensive experience with out-of-state sales, and can offer financing and registration in most states with little or no extra work on the customer's end. We can provide transportation from airports and train stations for you convenience, or help find a shipping company if you'd prefer to handle the entire transaction from the comfort of your own home.

Here are a few words from some of our satisfied customers. If you would like to submit your own testimonial, please contact us.

In the CT Valley region, there is the town of Naugatuck, where I believe I have found a better way to purchase used cars. I am writing this to express my thanks to all those at A Better Way Wholesale Autos. I had been searching for a used truck for some time, and then I cam across this company. After the pressure at dealers asking for deposits and many used car lots where I found high mileage autos at high prices, I found this place. Who would have thought - no pressure, an actual garage with ASE Certified technicians, and nothing but good looking, low mileage, late model autos. I was sure something was up! Not only did I get my truck at a fair price, but they actually put money into after the price was settled. New brakes, rotors, detailing, oil change and diagnostics to determine and engine fault. And a 6,000 mile warranty to boot - all at their expense. Rob the salesman was very cordial and helpful, but the owner told be stories about getting into this business and things he did to help his customers, sometimes at a loss. This closed the deal for me. Are these guys for real? Used cars? Buy them here. It surely is a better way.

To Coty in service, and everyone at A Better Way:
I can't thank you enough for everything, it was a pleasure meeting you and it was so nice of you to not only take me later than normal, but for all the extras that came with the oil change. (I was so surprised when you told me my car would be washed and vacuumed!) I was so happy with the service I received, just like every other time I've been there. I have never had anything but wonderful experiences since the first time I stepped foot on the lot. I hope you will accept this gift card as a token of my appreciation. I look forward to seeing you at my next visit. Thanks again!

To the staff at A Better Way Wholesale:
I jus wanted to thank you for being so helpful in my purchase of the BMW. You made the whole experience a breeze -- which I was not expecting! Thanks again!

I want to take a minute to thank you for all the kindness and generosity you have shown to my family this past year. Your honesty and simple willingness to do your best for your customers during a sale and after is outstanding. Before my husband's illness he would always take care of the maintenance on all our cars, and it has been a blessing to be able to have you, someone I know I can trust, to do a wonderful job in maintaining my vehicles. It has taken a load off my shoulders. I cannot thank you enough for the kindness and generosity you have shown my family.
- Sincerely, Marie B.

Once again you found the right truck for me. I think this was number 4, and I know I will be back for #5 and on... Thanks again for all your help!

To A Better Way Wholesale Autos:
Dear Friends and patrons of St. Jude,
Thank you for your gift for the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Without your dedication to our mission of saving children's lives, so much of our innovative work we do would not be possible. You have given our children hope for a healthy, happy and productive future -- you have given them that second chance at life.
