  • Sam Moun
    Sales Professional

    Hello, my name is Sam Moun. I have worked here at O'Daniel Mazda for the past 14 years. I began selling cars since 1995. I came here to Fort Wayne since 1980 when I was 7, (from Laos) and grew up here. I went to Zion Lutheran, South Side High, and graduated from IPFW. I have been married to my wife for 19 years and we have a son named Sam. My hobbies include boating, fishing, gardening, playing basketball with my son, and landscaping around the house.

    I truly enjoy selling cars. I get to meet people from all walks of life, some of which have become great friends. When you are looking for a vehicle, I want to make sure you get the best price and a safe and reliable car. After all, you can shop at any dealers and there's thousands to choose from. I assure you that you will not be pressured in any way. Let's face it, car salesmen don't have the best reputation. (LOL). You can read my reviews.

    Thank you for taking your time to read a little about me. It would be a great priviledge to be your salesman. I will take out the uneasy feeling and fear of buying a vehicle and make it a fun, personable, and stress free experience for you.
