Mike Aus

I'm Mike Aus, owner of Durango Motor Company. I've been in this business for over twenty five years, and there's one thing I've heard over and over again from our guests: "The single most stressful part of buying a new car is the negotiation!" Meeting our guests' needs is a priority of mine that is instilled in each of my team members, so at Durango Motor Company we removed the negotiation completely. We want you to feel comfortable and excited when purchasing your next vehicle! With that in mind, we do things differently here.

Our greatest value is guest enthusiasm, so our sales consultants aren't paid based on how much money is made from your sales transaction. Instead, they earn their living based on how satisfied you are with your purchase and overall experience. Because of this philosophy, we strive to bring you the best cars at the lowest possible price we can provide, so you can rest assured you're getting the best car for your wants, needs, and budget- not ours. Our Best Price is upfront on every vehicle, and no matter who you are, everyone gets the same low price.

We want your car buying experience to be a great one, so you can drive off the lot completely satisfied and happy- but we don't stop there. Our parts and service department, detail, DGO Autogear Accessories, and ABRA body shop each strive to bring you the same quality experience and satisfaction, with specialized technicians for all of your automotive needs.

Being a family owned business, we aim to treat you and yours like family, too. At Durango Motor Company, it's about building a relationship with our guests, not emptying your wallet.

Come visit us today and experience the difference- I'll look forward to meeting you and showing you just how enjoyable the car buying experience can be.

Tom O.
General Manager

It is our mission to exceed our guests and employee's expectations and maintain their loyalty for a lifetime. 

My name is Tom Ondrako, the General Manager at Durango Motor Company. I have been in the car business since 1978 starting as an office manager for a local dealer. After 43 years, living in Endwell NY, located in upstate New York, I decided I needed a change and a better lifestyle for me and my family.  In 2001, an opportunity came available to be the Controller at the New Country Auto Center, so my family and I packed up to begin a new adventure.  I have 3 wonderful children who now live on the east coast and are pursuing careers of their own. I really enjoy the outdoors and when I am away from work I enjoy riding our side by side with my wife and friends in the beautiful mountains of Durango and surrounding areas. I am still an avid fan of the NY Yankees and NY Giants. "GO GIANTS". 

My goal at Durango Motor Company is for our Guests to have a sales and service experience that is extraordinary, feeling extremely enthused. Our founder Leonard Rydell, had Leonardisms, as we call them, one being "never take advantage of a guest even if you can."  We strive extremely hard to fulfill his aspirations, however, sometimes we do fall short and that is when you will truly see who we are as a company by taking ownership and rectifying the situation. Our philosophy holds that in any planning and decision-making process, Guest Enthusiasm will always carry the most weight. Many of Leonard's comments are hanging throughout the dealership to remind us of the kind of experience you can expect from the entire staff at Durango Motor Company. 

"I want you to work hard, work smart and treat people with respect, and the sky's the limit." 

Our employees are also an integral part of your experience, and it's my goal to make sure that each and everyone of them provides you this same experience. One of our values is "The Value of Our People," we have nothing of greater value than our people. We respect the uniqueness of every individual and believe that such an attitude will build a team of confident, creative members possessing a high degree of initiative, self-respect and self-discipline. 

I would encourage you to share your experiences with me so that your feedback can be used effectively to improve the experience you have with Durango Motor Company.

Nate M.
General Sales Manager

Hi, I'm Nate.

"Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life."

Cars and trucks have always been a passion of mine. From the moment I got my first Hot Wheel, I was hooked. It was a shiny red Mustang that roared louder than all the rest of my cars combined. It never lost a race because I controlled the finish line. It was my dream car.

I got into the car business in 2008 after spending 10 years in customer service. I have personally bought over 20 vehicles in my life and have helped thousands of people buy their dream cars, work trucks and daily commuters.  It's an adrenaline rush, an exciting and a wonderful experience for both our guests and for us. Most people, however, rate buying a car right up there with getting their teeth pulled. 

At Durango Motor Company, we aim to change that for the better. Our whole focus is guest enthusiasm. We want to change the perception of the car buying experiences for everyone by offering them a non-commission based sales force that strives and succeeds at finding your shiny red Mustang or whichever vehicle that suits your wants and needs. We offer all of our guests our best price right up front and eliminate the dreadful negotiation and arguing that too often is associated with buying a car.  If you'd like to learn more about our brand promises, you can find more information in the About Us tab.

If you have any questions about vehicles, financing, leasing or just want to talk cars, let me know.

India D.
Online Sales Manager

Hi, I'm India.

I moved to Durango in 1999 from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, thus my love for both the ocean and the mountains. In my 18 years in Durango, I've developed a passion for trail running, backpacking, rafting & hiking. Still working on the cold weather sports! When I'm not helping y'all find your dream vehicles, I have 3 beautiful boys and one man that keep me extremely busy & full.

I came to work at Durango Motor Company after purchasing my first new-ish vehicle last fall. The process was so smooth & easy, I felt silly for waiting so long! If I could drive off the lot in a new car today… it'd probably be a Rav 4 with the Adventure Package. Heated steering wheel, rubber floor mats, and dynamic cruise control, yes please!

Mike O.
Ford Lincoln Sales Manager


My name is Mike.  I am the Ford and Lincoln Sales Manager at Durango Motor Company.  I started with the dealership in June of 2016. 

I am originally from Meeker, Colorado.  Durango has been my home since 2007.  As a child, I visited Durango and spent my summers here.  I have always loved cars and my answer to "Which car would I own on the lot?" would be different every day.  I enjoy camping and golfing, spending time outside. 

I play the saxophone and attended college at Boise State.  My wife, Korinne, and I are expecting our third child.  We have a daughter and a son.  Our house is full of pets - two dogs, two cats and a fish. 

I love what I do and where I work.  Durango is a wonderful place to live and raise a family.

Kane T.
Kia Sales Manager


It is said that salesmen are about as honest as lawyers and purchasing a vehicle is rated to be as painful as having teeth pulled. Allow me a moment to introduce myself so I can assure you, not all salesmen are the same. 

I was first introduced to the car business in 2008 as a car wash employee with New Country Auto Center. After a couple of months, I advanced into a sales consultant position. Two years later, I was promoted to an internet manager and just one year after that, I began managing our entire inventory of four new vehicle franchises. When Durango Motor Company purchased the dealership from New Country Auto Sales, I was placed in charge of managing our Toyota sales, and after one full year of sales we achieved the Toyota Presidents Award, one that is given to the elite dealerships that exceed the standards in both customer service as well as sales. 

I am an amazing husband and a father of two beautiful children. Having lived in Durango my whole life I have been able to enjoy all four seasons and  many outdoor activities like fishing, camping, sledding and anything involving sports. As a Colorado native I am an Avalanche fan, a Nuggets fan, and a Rockies fan, but was raised to love the Dallas Cowboys (which was a good decision before 1995). 

I know many of you here in this community and would love to see your smiling faces, so please come on in and pay me a visit.

Value Autos Sales Manager


I am Michael, I joined the DMC team in April 2018. I am originally from Chicago and moved to Durango after living in Denver.

I have loved the Durango area since 1987 when I first came here for a visit after graduating from college. If I could have any car on our lot, I would own the Toyota Land Cruiser. It is the ultimate SUV on the planet! I enjoy hiking, climbing, mountain biking, road biking and skiing.

I am at cowboy at heart, a kind, simple man. I enjoy the simple pleasures. When you get to know me, I have a sarcastic wit but am good at heart. I love the board game Go.

Jordan H.
Finance & Insurance Manager


My name is Jordan.  I grew up in Angel Fire, a small ski resort town in the beautiful mountains of northern New Mexico. I happily spent most of my younger days with the woods as my playground. My family moved to Cortez, Colorado in time for me to finish out high school. Within a week of graduation, I moved to Durango and have been a proud local going on eight years now. I attended Fort Lewis College, and upon completion still haven't found a reason to leave this beautiful place. The small-town feel coupled with the multitude of outdoor activities I enjoy in our gorgeous surroundings makes for my ultimate paradise.

I was brought on here at Durango Motor Company in late summer of 2015. I've had several sales and customer service positions in the past, and most love personally connecting with guests and seeing smiles walking out. As guest satisfaction is our number one priority, DMC seemed to be a great fit. I very much enjoy our unique no-haggle business philosophy, and feel that it has been great in making the overall atmosphere extremely relaxed for both the guest and myself, and easier to focus on providing a great service and exceptional experience. I am an expert in Ford, Lincoln, Toyota and Kia vehicles, and am excited for the chance to help you and your family find the vehicle that best fits your wants, needs and wallet. 

Thank you and please don't hesitate to email, call or text me anytime. I'm always happy to help.

After high school I attended school at Western State College and locally at FLC in Durango earning a degree in business. While attending FLC I meet my fiancé Lauren. We have been together for over five years now and are currently planning our wedding for this upcoming January!   

In my free time I enjoy numerous outdoor activities, anything from hiking and camping to just taking the dog for a walk. My biggest accomplishment in regards to outdoor activities is completion of the Colorado trail.  

I truly enjoy working were at Durango Motor Company. I especially like the no haggle-relaxed atmosphere that we work under. It allows us to truly help our guests find the right vehicle for them.

John E.
Value Autos Sales & Leasing Consultant


My name is John, but most people call me Johnny. I was born in Pueblo, Colorado on August 16th, 1992. I was adopted by my family and moved to Bayfield, Colorado when I was three years old. I am the youngest of 11 siblings; I have four brothers and seven sisters. I graduated from Bayfield High School and then Upper Pine Fire and Protection Academy in 2011. I moved to Durango to stay close to my family. I love soccer, running, army combatives, and paintball. 

-John E.

Michael F.
Internet Sales & Leasing Consultant


I'm Michael Folk. I was raised in Bayfield, Colorado. I graduated Bayfield High School back in 2010 and soon after joined the Navy as a Gunner's Mate. I missed Colorado, so I made the decision to move back in March of 2017.

I joined Durango Motor Company in April with no sales experience. I was able to learn and have some of the best mentors I have ever had because of the way everyone takes care of one another. Honestly, I have never worked for a better company or group of people.  I spend a lot of free time either fishing, hunting, or camping. When it comes to sports, football is my all-time favorite, from YAFL all the way to the NFL.

So, whether you want to talk sports or about your next Vehicle, I want to be your go to person. Here at Durango Motor Company, we offer a relaxed shopping experience so feel to stop by for a visit. Thank you for your time and have a great day.

Bill F.
Value Autos Sales & Leasing Consultant


My name is Bill, I started with the dealership in 2007.  

I am originally from Detroit, Michigan.  We've been in the Durango area since September of 2001.  We sold our home in Conifer and ended up buying a home in Durango.  

If I could have any vehicle on our lot, I would pick a Ford F-150 Crew Cab Platinum.  Its versatility, great ride and great gas mileage make it perfect for this area.  

My favorite thing to do is fishing at Vallecito.  I love the pace of Durango.  Living in major cities during my previous life gave me a great appreciation for the small-town atmosphere and numerous outside activities that the area provides.  We like taking our dogs for a walk in the woods of Forest Lakes, fishing the banks of Vallecito, and tubing the Animas during the slower flow times. 

I have been married to my wife, Michelle, for 33 years.  We've always had dogs and sometimes horses.  We currently have three little mutts from the Humane Society that keep Michelle company while I work at the dealership.  

I love working here!  I enjoy helping the new sales people through positive coaching.  I also really enjoy meeting people and this position affords me the ability to help them.  It makes me feel great!

Internet Sales & Leasing Consultant


I know how hard it can be to trust someone, especially when purchasing a vehicle!  So, I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself.  This is my first year in the car business. I wandered into Durango Motor Company during the summer of 2017, looking for something new. I used to be a gas station attendant but I began looking around for something more interesting, something more challenging.  

I grew up in Saint Augustine, Florida and I moved to Durango, Colorado back in 2010. I instantly loved this little town, not only for the beautiful scenery but also for the community.   When I'm not here at work, I have quite the variety of hobbies including camping, hiking, photography and motocross, I enjoy a little bit of it all. Living in Durango makes it very easy to do all of those things.  Since my first day here at Durango Motor Company, I have committed myself to providing each one of my guests a very relaxed shopping experience. 

Thank you for the opportunity to provide you everything that I'm capable of, and always feel free to call, text or email me with any and all questions!

Jarrod L.
Internet Sales & Leasing Consultant

I know how hard it is to trust someone, especially when you're buying a car! So, I would like to take a moment and introduce myself.

My birthplace was Ontario, California but my home will always be here in colorful Colorado. I grew up in Pagosa Springs and also lived in Durango for 13 years until moving back to Pagosa Springs two years ago to be closer to family. That should prove to you how much I love selling cars!

A little bit about me, I'm a proud single dad of a wonderful 12 year old son, he's my world. We love the outdoors, hockey, and almost everything nerdy. I have a very creative background in the arts. Before being a parent I participated in Community Theater for years and was part of numerous productions in my hometown. I also have a passion for drawing and photography.

I joined Durango Motor Company in September 2014. This is the first and only dealership I've ever worked for. With 10 years in the hospitality industry and being a customer service specialist in retail management for 5 years, I felt that becoming a sales consultant was a practical choice and so far my experience here has been extremely fun and very rewarding. I especially like the no haggle and relaxed atmosphere we work under here. It allows me to truly help my guests find the right vehicle for them.

It would be my absolute pleasure to be able to have the opportunity to help you and your family with your vehicle needs. My door is always open, so please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. 

Rod M.
Internet Sales & Leasing Consultant

I joined the Durango Motor Company Family back in October 2012 shortly after they opened. I was looking for a change of pace after being retired.  

After reading the company's business philosophy I knew this was a place I wanted to work…and I can honestly say I love working here. 

I am a native Californian but have been living here in Durango off and on for the past 35 years.  I love the outdoors and there is no better place than Durango to enjoy the hiking, fishing, and rafting.  I can say I had my own local Durango business here for 20 years and sold it a while back.  

I am proud to say I am married to my best friend and wife for 30 years...yes 30 years!!! While I am not up here serving my customers you will find me at home with my wife, our 2 horses, Nicky and Ellis, along with our 2 Newfoundland dogs, Timmy and Duchess. 

I am also an avid cyclist and actually completed the Ironhorse Classic a few years ago, which is a 47-mile trek through the mountains! 

I love what I do and would be honored to serve you and your family.  Please feel free to call, text, or email with any and all questions!

Take Care,

My name is Bryan Burns, and I am the DMC Service Director.  I came to Durango from Denver in 2013 when I accepted the position of ABRA Body Shop Manager at DMC.  It has been the best career move that I have made.  This is a great place to live, and working for Mike Aus has been a great decision.  

The Ford F-150 Platinum is my favorite car on the lot.  It is very powerful while at the same time quiet, smooth and comfortable.  

I love fly fishing, hunting, snowboarding and playing pool.  When I lived in Albuquerque, I used to visit Durango to snowboard.  I always loved coming here. 

An interesting fact about me is that I have a hot air balloon pilot license.  My stepson, Manny, is sixteen years old.  My wife and I also welcomed a baby girl named Brooke to our family last February.  I have a cat named Daisy and three chickens.

Jonathan F.
Toyota Kia Service Manager

Meet Jonathan Frazier, our Toyota Service Manager.  Jonathan got his start in the car business at age 17, as a porter and car washer in Houston, Texas.  He went away to college after that, never dreaming he'd be back in the car business to stay!  Jonathan obtained his BA in Aero Science from the University of North Dakota, and began his career as a commissioned officer in the USMC.  

Following his time on the east coast with the Marines, Jonathan became the service manager of the largest dealership in northern Wisconsin, Rhinelander GM.  His next stop was Austin, Texas, where he obtained a service advisor position and a prompt promotion to finance manager.  In 2010, Jonathan moved his family back to Wisconsin and worked as Parts Manager back in Rhinelander for two years. At long last, Jonathan and his family made their way to Durango in 2012.  

Jonathan has served the dealership as Fixed Operations Director, Parts Manager, Accessories Manager and now, Service Manager. His knowledge of the car business is versatile and he's a key member of the Durango Motor Company team.  

In his spare time, Jonathan enjoys skiing, golfing, and if time permits, flying.  He and his wife have three young children and feel very fortunate to call Durango home!

Thomas H.
Toyota Service Advisor


My name is Thomas Haderthauer.  I go by Thomas on account that most people can't pronounce my last name.

I was born in Newark, New Jersey.  I was raised in Tucson, Arizona and spent my whole life in the desert. Under the Arizona sun is where I developed my intense love for cars and everything about them. I have built various cars throughout my life and was fortunate enough to have been taught at a very young age. (My mother showed me how to install my first starter at the age of five.) My love for cars grew from there into what can only be described as an obsession.

I moved to Durango in 2010 and fell in love with the town immediately. I first came into Durango Motor Company in 2013 and love the company.  The best price philosophy and the relaxed atmosphere drew me in immediately. I became friends with the associates and began playing slow pitch softball on the company team.  I really started seeing the culture that surrounded the place and how it was more of a family than a place of employment. I decided to come to work for DMC in July of 2017 and couldn't be happier. 

I would love the opportunity to show you how the experience I have had with this company changed my life for the better and truly altered my perception of the car buying experience.

Hey there!

My name is Katherine, and I am originally from Whitehouse, Ohio (a tiny town, right outside of Toledo). I moved to Durango in August 2007 to attend Fort Lewis College. While attending Fort Lewis College, I double majored in Art and Business. After graduating in 2010, I had the opportunity to work at a few different jobs, or as I like to call it, the Durango Tango, I found I was most passionate about marketing.  

What I like most about my job, is that I am able to use both of my degrees and stay in this town I love so much. I am also a social butterfly, and absolutely love being able to represent our company, while being out in the community.

In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and making jewelry. I look forward to meeting and working with you. 

Thank you,


Mandie F.

Megan A.


I'm a North Dakota native and graduate of The University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. I continued my education at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. After several years in Fashion and Beauty Public Relations, I decided to bring my marketing talents back to the family business. I've been in Durango since Durango Motor Company opened in August 2012. 

You could say that I grew up in the car business. In fact, my father Mike Aus became a GM Technician in Bismarck, North Dakota the year I was born. I've had the unique privilege of growing up with our dealership family and seeing the ins and outs of a Best Price philosophy dealership. 

I love living in the mountains and spend most of my free time with friends, skiing, hiking or just relaxing in my backyard on the creek. 

When I leave our beautiful mountain home, I love to explore new cities and scenery. If given the chance, I will likely talk your ear off about three of my favorite places: Norway, Spain and Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I bleed green and gold for my all-time favorite team, the Green Bay Packers. 

I look forward to meeting you and working with you.
