Dave Forde Auto Sales was established in 2000, when Dave made the change from a large-branded dealership to an independent dealership in Lower Sackville: Kingston Auto Sales.  He spent his first 5 years at Kingston as Sales Manager and began building his own inventory of vehicles.  From 2005-2019 Dave served as General Manager and was accounting for more than half of the Kingston vehicle inventory, while always ensuring that the core values of Kingston Auto Sales were top of mind.   Those core values are our core values, as we move forward as Dave Forde Auto Sales.  We believe in providing exceptional customer service, a no-pressure sales approach and top-quality used vehicles.

Our Business Manager is Mark Gilbert, who began at Kingston Auto Sales in 2014.  Mark became the Business Manager in 2016, while also handling most sales requests and marketing duties.  Mark grew up in Lower Sackville and has worked in the automotive industry since 2006.

At Dave Forde Auto Sales, we make a point to seek out low-mileage vehicles, through lease returns that we can buy directly from the manufacturer, or through various auction channels.  We have a high standard for vehicle quality, and this is always top of mind when we search for new inventory.  We believe in fair pricing and we are constantly reviewing the market to ensure you’re getting the best price up front.  It’s important to us that your car buying experience is a smooth and enjoyable one!
