Share Article

Santa Fe Ford has stood as an institution for the city of Gainesville, home of the University of Florida and The Gators. They've just recently celebrated a momentous anniversary.

Santa Fe Ford, a dealership located in Alachua, FL and serving the greater Gainesville area, has just celebrated a milestone 30 year anniversary. The folks there are proud to ring in yet another decade of service to their community. They're the largest used car dealer in their area, and the largest Ford truck dealer in the entire region. Santa Fe Ford works to maintain a low overhead on their inventory orders, mostly so they can drive their prices down, which is why when they're looking for used cars Gainesville FL buyers most consistently go to Santa Fe Ford.

For over half of their lifetime, Santa Fe has also been affiliated with a funmachine dealership, Santa Fe Powersports, which is the largest Arctic Cat dealer in the region. They deal mostly in powerboats and motorcycles, nearly any motorcycle brand you could think of, but they're also one of the few Xpress boat dealers in the entire southeast. Because Santa Fe Powersports' collection of makes ranges from Suzuki to Polaris Gainesville FL buyers have been going to Santa Fe more than any other dealer.

The Santa Fe company was first founded by John Waitcus a bit over 30 years ago. He was a veteran car salesman even then, having owned dealerships associated with Porsche, Saab, Audi, Volkswagen, BMW, and Hyundai. Including his prior experience as well as his ownership of Santa Fe in Alachua, John has been in the car business for over 50 years.

Santa Fe's reputation has stood strong for over three decades in their region, which is why they're the top dealer of Gainesville FL used cars. Says Greg Waitcus, the current general manager, "We have proudly served their community for decades, and will continue to do so for decades to come."
