1and2 Automotive is an independent family owned used car dealership with 2 locations in Dallas, TX. It was founded by Dave Kost I and his son, Dave Kost II, after Dave I moved to Dallas to be closer to his family in 2012. The business started out as a small family enterprise where the two Daves bought and sold cars one-by-one in front of the house. Thanks to their rapid success, they soon opened their first used car dealership in Dallas and chose the name “1and2 Automotive” as a reference to the co-founder’s names – Dave I and Dave II.
1and2 Automotive has since grown to include two Dallas locations that sell nearly 2,000 used cars per year and between the two Daves, they have a combined 45+ years of experience in the auto industry. They opened the dealership with the desire to provide a higher level of service at a better value and sought to employ the most highly skilled individuals to provide our customers with the best service possible.
At 1and2 Automotive, we focus heavily on training for our technicians and management to ensure that we provide you with cutting-edge diagnostic and repair work and the best customer service in the business.
