Bruce and Mendy Wallace

5 Star Cars

Owners Bruce and Mendy Wallace have been a part of the Prescott community since 1973 (Bruce) and 1983 (Mendy). Bruce graduated from Yavapai College in 1982 and then went on to obtain his Bachelors in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. In the early 80’s, while Mendy was busy caring for their very busy 5 children, Bruce not only worked in the Engineering Department of Global Navigation in Prescott, but also obtained his Car Dealers License and began “5 Star Auto”, selling “super clean” cars from his dad’s Exxon Service Station located in Prescott at the 5 Points Intersection.  In the early 90’s Bruce went on to purchase “The Oak Tree” furniture store in Prescott, (while still buying and selling “super clean” cars) and began providing the people of the Prescott area with high quality furniture — for over 16 years!

Going back to his roots, in 2013 Bruce purchased the closed down car wash on Yavapai Road in Prescott Valley, and “5 Star Cars” came to life!  And just as he has been doing for many years, he continues to offer folks from all over Arizona (and many other states) high quality products, comfortable, professional service, and second to none support after the sale! Check out the reviews, and head on down to 5 Star Cars. You just might drive out with your next “SUPER NICE” vehicle!
