After 20 years in business as BBC Motors, the pre-owned car dealership has changed its name to Drive Now Murfreesboro.
Manager Ross Tierney explained how the name change allows for each of the company's dealerships in Murfreesboro, Tullahoma, Lebanon, Franklin, Dickson and Columbia to unify in one network.
Located at 406 S.E. Broad St. next to the Discovery Center, Drive Now Murfreesboro offers as many as 70 cars on its lot at any given time.
"We have small cars, big cars, vans, small trucks, big trucks and SUVs," Tierney said. "We stay away from high-end pricey cars because they can be expensive to repair and hard to keep up the maintenance when you're trying to keep up the payments."
This man knows his cars -- and he knows which ones are reliable.
Drive Now Murfreesboro offers a 30-day powertrain warranty and lot financing with a down payment and weekly or biweekly payment plans.
For information about Drive Now Murfreesboro, call 615-849-8474 or visit www.drivenowmurfreesboro.com.
Or, as Tierney says, "Come and see us. We finance just about everybody. That's why we're called Drive Now. We say, 'Yes!'"

Our Mission in Motion
Saint Thomas Health's mobile mammography coach, sponsored by Susan G. Komen for the Cure's "Our Mission in Motion" and MTMC's Power of Pink initiative, recently visited MTMC's Saint Louise Clinic.
Launched in June 2011, "Our Mission in Motion" mobile mammography coach was the first of its kind in Middle Tennessee, according to hospital officials. It brings screening mammograms directly to women where they work, live and shop. The coach has screened over 1600 patients in its first year of operation.
The coach was at the clinic providing screening mammograms at no cost to qualifying women who were patients of the clinic. During the last fiscal year in Rutherford County, the MTMC Foundation's Power of Pink initiative invested more than $46,000 for mammograms and breast care for 330 women.
The Saint Louise Clinic is a walk-in, primary care clinic housed in the Bell Street Building at 503 E. Bell Street, Suite 103, on the former MTMC campus near Highland Avenue. It opened November 2011 and was created to meet the growing needs of the Murfreesboro community, especially Rutherford County residents who are uninsured, underinsured or in need of a primary care physician.
The mobile service is offered to women age 40 and older who are not pregnant or breastfeeding, experiencing any breast problems, such as lumps or pain, or being followed by a physician for breast problems.
"Our Mission in Motion" is a mobile mammography outreach program that is funded by Saint Thomas Health, Komen for the Cure and the Power of Pink. The program targets employed, underinsured and uninsured women throughout a 16-county area.
