About the Stohlman Automotive Family

    Welcome to the Stohlman Automotive Family of Dealerships!

Here you'll find the word family is an integral part of who we are. Stohlman Automotive has deep roots in the community, having been in business for over 80 years.

Mr Richard Stohlman started in the car business in 1956 at Stohlman Chevrolet, which was founded on M St in Georgetown in the 1930's, becoming a DC institution for many years. He worked with his father, Edwin L Stohlman and his brother, Ed Jr. A graduate of St John's High School in DC and the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Finance, Mr. Stohlman served as a first lieutenant in the United States Army.

In 1971 he opened Stohlman Volkswagen in Tysons Corner - what was then a sleepy little village (at the time, it's reported his father thought he was crazy to start a dealership way out there in the middle of farm fields....). In 1978 Stohlman Subaru was added in Tysons Corner.


The business expanded over time and is now run by his youngest daughter, Catherine Stohlman.

In 2007 Stohlman Subaru of Herndon was added as a second Subaru sales and service facility. Not a grand dealership on the outside by today's standards, but inside you'll love the down home atmosphere and friendly service you receive.


In late 2014, Stohlman began construction of a brand new, state of the art Subaru facility in Sterling, VA.


Today, the Stohlman Automotive Family has grown to over 150 full and part time associates. Here you'll find we not only sell Subaru vehicles, but love to drive them as well. Just come out to our next Enthusiast Day or New Owner Clinic to see for yourself. We are passionate about these cars and our customers!
