    Born and raised in La Porte, Indiana and a 1992 graduate of La Porte High School!  I started my automotive career at age 14.  My first job, sweeping the garage floor and emptying the trash.  Since then I have done nearly every job in the dealership from oil changes, detailing cars to selling and managing.  I love every aspect of the dealership and love the family atmosphere that my Father started and I continue at La Porte Chrysler.  We do not believe in high pressure or silly games that other dealers play.  I personally work every deal with my sales team and all prices are listed on our website, upfront, transparent and HONEST!  We have been a local La Porte business for 45 years for a reason, we WORK, PLAY, SUPPORT and LIVE in LA PORTE.  We pride ourselves on repeat customers and long term employees.  I am so proud and confident of my team that I have my personal cell phone listed here, feel free to call me anytime.  Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit our website and welcome to the La Porte family!

    My name is Bob Wiles, from La Porte, Indiana. Not only did I purchase my first car from Mr. Magnuson when I was 18, but also have been employed here for over 30 years and still counting. I'm married with 8 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren and we love spending free time in my boat on the water. I'm a Marine Corp Veteran and have a background in Martial Arts. Most folks say hello with a "Save a lot of miles, when you see Bob Wiles" greeting.
