Matthews Motors Named Carolina Independent Automotive Dealer Association's Quality Dealer of the Year!

Steve Matthews, owner of Matthews Motors in Clayton, has been named the Carolinas Independent Automotive Dealer Association’s Quality Dealer of the Year for 2010. The award was presented at the CIADA’s annual meeting in Myrtle Beach, S.C.


Matthews will represent CIADA next June in Las Vegas, Nev. where the National Independent Automotive Dealer Association will select its winner.

Matthews from chosen from a list of nominees from the Carolinas. The winner is not chosen because he sells the most cars or has the most impressive showroom. The winner must exemplify integrity and honesty while conducting ethical business practices and be involved in the community. The staff at Matthews Motors prides itself on standing behind the vehicles they sell and the customers they serve.

“I’m excited and humbled,” Matthews said. “It’s the highlight of my career. Being the best of the best is something you strive for.”

Matthews opened his used car lot on U.S. Hwy 70 in Clayton in June 1994. He started out with three cars and boat, and his wife and young child at his side. Today the business has grown into a 7,500 square foot full-service facility and employs 17 full time workers.

Matthews is a strong supporter of the local schools, civic organizations and his church. He is also deeply involved in Clayton Area Ministries’ food pantry, where his wife, Dale, serves as director. The Matthews have two teenage children, Tyler and Morgan.
