Presidents

Stanley Cardinal - Kim Cardinal
President - Vice President
860-449-0411


Cardinal Honda opened in July 1990 with a philosophy of treating customers and employees like family.

Stan credits the U.S. Navy for bringing him to Groton as well as inspiring him to establish his business with a sense of military order.  Stan has remained a leader in the Connecticut and Rhode Island auto industry for over fifty years.

In 2012, Stan's daughter, Kimberly came on board as co-owner and Vice President; a joy and a blessing for Stan.  "People associate the way we do business with our family name.  We want our friends, family and customers to be proud of the way we do business.  People say they like doing business with us because we are nice people, this is the best feeling", says Ms. Cardinal.

Both Stan and Kimberly enjoy spending their free time on the ocean and with their families.

    Wow! Can't believe I am about to start my 33rd year in automobile sales! Who would have guessed, but here I am. I have been blessed to have had the success that I've had. It has been a pleasure both working at Cardinal Honda and meeting all the wonderful customers and friends that I've gotten to know over the years.

    I have also been blessed with a wonderful family, my wife Ane, my two daughters Alyssa, Trina, and my son Austin. I am the luckiest guy on earth. Stop in and say hi, both friends and customers.

    I started working for Honda in 1999 and have been with Cardinal Honda since 2007. One of the most enjoyable qualities that Cardinal Honda offers is the family atmosphere. It's something we take great pride in and extend to our customer and their families whenever they visit us. It's completely different from the typical high pressure dealership.

    Over the years I have been involved in many of the community support efforts. I am a public notary, and I've been a coordinator in the blood drives for the past 8 years. I also run the "Closest to the Pin" annual golf tournaments. I'm local to the area as I reside in Ledyard with my wonderful family, my wife Tracy, my son CJ, and my daughter Riley.

    My history with the Cardinal Honda family started back in 1995, not knowing at the time that it would turn into a great career. Through out the years I have met a long list of some great people who have turned into very loyal customers. My goal has always been to deliver a great product with honesty and integrity. I have achieved many goals with American Honda and am proud to say I am part of the Council of Sales Leadership program with a Gold Master status. This is earned with meeting production goals and top notch customer satisfaction results from my customers. With our Clear & Simple approach, conducting business at Cardinal Honda is very transparent and makes the process for the customer so easy.

    On a personal note, my wife and I have been married for 33 years and have three children and one grandson. Thank you to all my loyal customers and I look forward to meeting new clients and earning your business.

    I have been at Cardinal Honda since 2012 and have enjoyed the family atmosphere that is very uncommon for most car dealerships. In that time I have met some great families and made some great friends, and I enjoy helping them with their second largest life purchase. It's easy to present our line up of vehicles since I personally drive the product I represent. With the help of friends and my customers I have achieved the Silver level of the Council of Sales Leadership.  In my spare time I love spending time with my children.

    With Cardinal Honda being the first dealership I have ever worked for, I could not be happier. I started working here at the end of 2016 and I enjoy every minute of it! From the low pressure atmosphere, to the focus on customer satisfaction, I feel right at home. I live just over the bridge nearby in New London, and have lived in Connecticut most of my life. I look forward to showing you how different the car shopping experience can be!

    This is my first year in the car business and I'm happy to be working here at Cardinal Honda. I have learned a lot and excelled since I started in August 2017. At Cardinal Honda I am not only an employee, but a customer as well. I made my first car purchase here and I couldn't be any happier. Growing up in the local area and driving past Cardinal Honda gave me the idea to come in and apply and I've been here ever since. Over here we treat every customer equally and we work in a friendly home-like environment.

    I moved here in 2012 from a tiny town in Western Massachusetts called Adams.  I am a mom to 3 children and they are my world. I am the daughter of a car salesman and for quite some time I wasn't sure that I wanted to follow in those footsteps.  Cardinal Honda is the only reason I had changed my mind. I have been with Cardinal Honda for 6 months, and am very much looking forward to making my career here.  From the moment you walk into our building it is a completely different car buying experience, and I am very happy to be a small part of it all.

    I've lived in Gales Ferry for about a year now, and I'm all around pleased with my decision to move and become more than just a small town girl. I am happy to learn from everyone here at the dealership, and most of all from our customers. I love coming to work every single day, and I am very excited for the future and to see the progress we make as a united team. Should you ever have a question, please call us and we'll be more than happy to assist you in any way we can. I look forward to assisting you and earning your business!

     "Come fly with the Cardinal at the wheel of a Honda", many of us have come to know that trademark jingle! With over 3 years invested at Cardinal Honda starting as a sales consultant and moving on to Internet sales and leasing I couldn't be more proud of my personal achievements as well as being part of such a successful business.

     All of us here strive for one thing, and that's customer loyalty. All departments come together to ensure that each customer feels comfortable with their new purchase from the first drive home to servicing.
