Michael and Sue Shortall opened Reliable Auto Sales of Sturgeon Bay January of 1981. They withheld the test of time and overcame many obstacles in the 38 years. Including economic ups and downs. Competition coming and going. Internet gaining major headway. All while raising five children. They were a team, stuck by each other each and every day and ALWAYS did the right thing no matter what to make sure the customers that spent their hard earned money with us were satisfied. The example they set and what that has done for Reliable's reputation and health of a company will forever continue. We are so thankful and blessed to see Reliable move forward under the next generation.
