COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Gateway Lincoln Mercury is now just Gateway Mitsubishi on Fifth Avenue in downtown Columbus.

Owner and President Dan Snow says, "We are still servicing vehicles here as far as our previous customers are concerned."  He says, "We did recently resign the Lincoln Mercury franchise.  We will not be able to sell new Lincoln Mercury Products but we are still selling pre-owned used cars."

However, Gateway Mitsubishi will not be able to repair vehicles that have parts under Lincoln Mercury warranty.

Rivertown Ford would be the only Ford Lincoln Mercury authorized dealership in Columbus to get warranty work performed.

Brad Williams of Rivertown Ford says, "All of our technicians are trained by Ford Lincoln Mercury.  We are already seeing an increase in traffic. "
