Why Auto Bank in Kansas City is the Right Used Car Dealership Choice
It almost goes without saying that in every large city in the United States there are dozens of used car dealerships who claim to sell the best used cars. In Kansas City alone there are at least 156 different car dealerships within a 25-mile radius of the city. For the average car buyer, navigating the slew of different used car dealers can be a nightmare. However, there are specific characteristics everyone who is in the market for a “new” used car should consider to separate reputable used car dealerships from disreputable ones.
Luckily, Auto Bank of Kansas City has all these aspects and more, which means you get quality, caring service every time you visit one of our locations. Here are some of the most important characteristics of a used auto dealer and why Auto Bank of Kansas City is the best used car dealership in the area.
A good used car dealership cares about their inventory.
You’ve probably driven by dealerships whose inventory of used cars looks like a junkyard. They contain mostly old, extremely worn cars which are sold for very low prices. Often, though not always, these types of dealerships are just trying to sell whatever they can as quickly as they can, and they have little regard for the buyer. And while an old car does not necessarily indicate a bad car, these lots often don’t even have a mechanic check out their inventory before they sell it. This can lead the buyer to making a purchase they ultimately regret.
But Auto Bank of Kansas City provides the best used cars in the area. Sold in partnership with leading brands like Toyota, GMC, Ford, and more, most of our cars are ten years old or newer. One of the best things about our lot is we offer financing, so our customers don’t have to settle for the junk car from an untrustworthy lot. Owning a newer model, fully-functioning car is possible for all with our help.
Dealerships have experienced staff and have been in business for many years.
Reliable businesses don’t pop up overnight. In fact, nearly 11% of businesses opened in the year 2011 never made it to their second year. Often, they’ll take years before they finally make it and become the businesses provide quality products and sales support to their customers. This takes hours of dedication—ensuring your customers feel as though they are being treated well, making sure you can showcase quality products, and letting people know you exist. Any business with thousands of reviews and very little evidence of being in business for a long time probably has something to hide.
You might have only just started seeing the name “Auto Bank” used to market our goods, but in reality, Auto Bank has been in the used car dealership industry for nearly three decades. Our licensed, experienced staff are part of what makes our authorized dealership the best in the area. Stop by and we will help you find, finance, and drive away with a car you are proud of.
Recalls are dealt with professionally and accordingly.
Recalls happen, even when you don’t want them to happen to your car. In fact, in 2017 United States auto regulators estimate there was around 53 million auto recalls that took place last year. It might seem like an inconvenience at the time, but recalls are meant to keep car customers safe and to provide them with a convenient and seamless way to compensate them for their trouble. Even though the FTC has deemed it legal to resell cars with a federal recall if they have passed inspection, it doesn’t mean it is safe or best to do so.
Rest assured our vehicles are only the highest quality. Each one of the used cars that is sold at Auto Bank of Kansas City goes through a rigorous inspection prior to being marketed, and we fully disclose the problems the car may or may not have prior to sale. Without strict attention to the safety and reliability of the car, we would not have been able to operate on the scale we do today.
Your dealership understands your personal situation and is willing to work with you.
Not every dealership has financing available. In fact, many require you to take loans out to purchase a vehicle before even reaching a lot. But even if you do find a lot that works with you on financing, many are willing to put you into a financial obligation they know you might not be able to afford in the long run. This could result in late fees and eventual repossession of your car.
The ultimate goal of Auto Bank dealers is to get our clients a car they are proud to drive and can afford to drive. We will ask you questions about your income, your lifestyle, and your credit that will allow us to provide you with the right car for your budget.
