The Tuttle Click Story

Tuttle Story Banner


The Tuttle-Click Automotive Group has been serving the Southern California community since 1946. Our founder, Holmes Tuttle, started his automotive career after moving to California from Oklahoma selling Ford parts. After working his way up, he opened his first dealership, and the nation’s first stand-alone Lincoln franchise in Beverly Hills. After selling a car to a young actor named Ronald Reagan, Holmes Tuttle found his way into politics, working with Reagan’s cabinet on the state and national level.

Today, there are six Tuttle-Click locations in California (Irvine, Tustin, and San Juan Capistrano) and nine more in Tucson and Green Valley, Arizona. Our owners are Robert Tuttle and Jim Click, Holmes’ son and nephew respectively.

Our goal is to assist customers with their automotive needs, from sales and leasing to parts and service, to finance and even collision repairs and commercial vehicles. Customer service is our number one priority, so our staff undergoes rigorous training to teach them the standards of professionalism, etiquette and friendliness that are required. Because of this focus, we continually place among the top of our region, or even nation, in customer satisfaction scores.

With the Tuttle-Click Price Promise, you can be assured that your deal is competitive, fair, hassle-free and easy. We challenge you to try us first!
