    888-397-3651

    Hello.  My name is Jason Turner, General Manager of Auto World, and a Wise County native.  I'm returning to the area with twenty plus years in the auto industry.

    I've helped many of you searching for the right vehicle over the years at Bill Gatton Automotive and most recently at Kia of Kingsport.  Whether it is helping with the purchase of a new or used car, financing your purchase or providing you with advise on parts and service, my years of experience and knowledge are at your disposal.

    I am extremely excited to be back in Wise County and looking forward to helping past and future loyal customers of Auto World.  I have joined an excellent team here in Big Stone Gap and we are striving to improve customer service and the overall experience of buying and servicing your next vehicle.

    I would like to personally thank John Morrissey and Elmer Lester for making the transition so smooth and easy.  Chantz Scott, myself, and the previous owners are committed to the people of this community and Wise County at large.  We are here for you.  Come by and see us, call us, or check us out online.

    My wife, Leslie Roberts Turner, and my four sons, Landon, Gabe, Parker, and Maddex are elated to be back close to home.  It is great to be back!!
