The Dahl Story – 100+ Years of Service

Andrew Dahl

Andrew Dahl

Five generations of the Dahl family, recently recognized as the eighth oldest Ford dealer in the nation under continuous family ownership, have influenced the automobile industry for more than 100 years. The first Dahl Automotive garage in La Crosse was located at Main and Front Streets, but within two years the thriving business expanded to a larger dealership located on Sixth and King Streets.

In 1957, the La Crosse business moved to its present location at Third and Division Streets.

Now leading the charge is the fifth generation: Andrew, Jansen and Tyler, with the support and guidance of their father, Harry Dahl, fourth generation.  The four of them are committed and passionate about continuing the legacy that more than 100 years has built focusing on customer satisfaction, team member development through humility based servant leadership, and an unwavering commitment to the giving back of time, talents and treasure to the community.
