Dealership History

In 1979, Jim and Dawna Gilbert created Wheels and Deals. Through hard work and unwavering commitment to their core values  "Happy, Huggable & Helpful" Jim Gilbert's Wheels and Deals has become the premiere used car dealership not only in Fredericton but all of Canada..

Wheels and Deals began with a single dream in mind: to be different while providing an experience that would resonate with customers. It would become a place to send family and friends, a place where they would be proud to say, this is where I purchase my vehicles!

Originally, Wheels and Deals started as a small operation with one employee (Jim). Today, the dealership has over 28 huggable employees, a state of the art hug quarters located on 6 fabulous acres, one of the largest vehicle selections in New Brunswick and an established reputation as Canada’s Huggable Car Dealer.

We welcome you to come by and tour our facility and feel what makes us different…..
