In a town full of car dealerships, John Howard Motors gets top BOM honors year after year. Maybe it’s because of West Virginians’ appreciation for the hardy Subaru and Nissan brands the dealership has built its reputation on. Maybe it’s the extensive inventory, both new and pre-owned, including Subaru certified pre-owned vehicles. Maybe it’s the service department’s complimentary shuttle service.

But we think some of what BOM voters appreciate is the dealership’s community involvement, raising money over the years for Meals on Wheels, Mon General Hospital, the Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center, and many other causes. — PK
