Lynch Automotive Family Like father, like son, like grandson. In an era of businesses that come and go, often merging and changing into organizations that you don’t even recognize the family owned business of yesteryear is fast becoming a rarity.

Yet, walk into Key Auto Group, you will most likely see people you know and faces you recognize, year after year.

It began with Hal Lynch Sr. who, with a deep passion for cars, created North Florida Lincoln Mercury in 1943. His son, Hal Lynch Jr. grew up in the business, learning the ropes from an early age. He then took the reins from his father in 1964. Soon, it was Hal’s sons Bill, Bob, nephews Tom and Henry Lynch and grandson Conrad Lynch, who, as teenagers, were washing cars, observing sales and service, and learning the business from the ground up as their fathers had learned before them.

As part of one of the top automotive groups in the southeast, with dealerships in Florida, Georgia and Alabama, Key Auto Group is one of the newest additions to the Lynch Automotive family.

For more than 70 years, the Lynch family name has been synonymous with client satisfaction, quality service and exceptional products.

At Key Auto Group, the quality of our new and pre-owned vehicles is one of the key reasons many of our clients return year after year. Our associates, an integral part of the Lynch Automotive family, are successful in aiding every client to enjoy their car-buying experiences.

Every generation of the Lynch family knows that Service is one of the most important cogs of their business model. With Hal Sr.’s ardent commitment to client service, clients of Key Auto Group reap the benefits of a Service Department that strives to build and maintain client loyalty by using the most technologically advanced diagnostics available. That’s why most of our technicians are Master Certified with many years of expert experience.

The seasoned professionals in our full Collision Center work with all insurance companies in order to evaluate and repair your vehicle as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The Lynch family’s success in the automotive business can be traced to one man’s love of cars, and the younger generation’s passion does not diminish.

Key Auto Group is proud to be a vital part of the Jacksonville Community and is proud to offer quality cars and superior service in a family atmosphere. For today and generations yet to come, our creed will be, “Family, Trust, Service – Since 1943”.
