Bob Penkhus Automotive in Colorado Springs is celebrating its 60 years of service to the community. The third-generation, family-owned business started as a tiny used car store – but now has three dealerships throughout the area that sell new and pre-owned Volvo, Mazda, Volkswagen and Mitsubishi. “We are really proud to be a family-owned operation, it’s rare to find auto dealers these days that are not corporate-owned,” says Rob Penkhus, GSM/Owner and son of Owner Bob Penkhus. “My grandfather started this business 60 years ago, and we truly appreciate every single person we’ve done business with in the past six decades.”
Very few auto dealerships can say that they’ve been growing and flourishing with the community for so long. In gratitude to their long-standing and potential customers, Bob Penkhus Automotive is running promotions every single day of 2017. Right now all are welcome to participate in the 60K Summer Giveaway. The dealership is giving away $500 in cash every single week of the summer; and has partnered with Sky Sox and Switchbacks FC, as well as restaurants and merchants throughout the area who are giving away hundreds more in prizes. Get involved by either going online to BobPenkhus.com or visiting the dealership at 1101 Motor City Dr., Colorado Springs. It’s their way of saying thank you for an amazing 60 years of business.
One of Bob Penkhus Automotive’s slogans is “Where Nobody Buys Just One,” because when you’ve been such a staple to the community for so long, many clients come back again and again. “The owner Bob frequently has clients come up to him to thank him because they’ve bought two Volkswagens or four Mazdas or seven Volvos from him. The clients really are a part of the Bob Penkhus Automotive family, and we do everything we can to make them feel welcome and accommodated,” says Nancy May, Director of Marketing.
“I love the thrill of this business,” says Rob Penkhus. “Every day is a new day and I get the chance to meet new and interesting people.” He recalls being a kid and coming home to help his dad and grandpa wash cars, and then he went on to help with servicing cars. When he went away to college in Arizona, he worked for other dealerships around Arizona State University for seven years, and now loves being back in Colorado Springs at his dad’s dealership to help carry on the business.
Whether you’re looking for a brand new Volvo, Mazda, Volkswagen or Mitsubishi or a certified pre-owned vehicle, Bob Penkhus Automotive has you covered. In fact, pre-owned vehicles come with the Penkhus Care Plus Certified Used Car Warranty, which includes a three month/3,000 mile zero deductible limited warranty, in addition to a multi-point vehicle inspection, AutoCheck vehicle history report and 24-hour emergency roadside assistance. The top priority of the company’s 140 employees is to ensure that clients are taken care of and completely satisfied with their car, truck, van or SUV. “We are here to support and serve everybody we can who needs an automobile,” says Rob Penkhus.
