Used Cars at Frank Kent Chevrolet

September 13th, 2019 by

A red 2015 Chevy Sonic is parked in front of a fountain after leaving a used car dealership near me in Ennis, TX.

Anyone who has ever sat down with a smartphone or laptop and decided to see what was out there in the world of used cars, at least for the first time, can tell you one thing. There is an awful lot. You don’t even have to finish your search engine query for “used car dealership near me” before you start getting suggestions on your next step. Then, you have page after page after page of possibilities. From chain-stores to mom-and-pop places to online inventories, you have no shortage of options in the virtual world.

But, used car shopping is different from most other types of online shopping. You can order a new outfit, a new book, or even a car accessory online, and you can be pretty much assured of what you are getting. Sure, you want to know you are getting it from a reputable site, but you still have a sense of confidence that you are getting what you want. That isn’t always the case in online shopping for used cars.

A used car is a very important investment. You are literally placing your life, as well as those of friends and family, in its hands. This is not an investment to be taken lightly. You want to have the most reliable vehicle you can, and that reliability is not always found online. Where it is found is at Frank Kent Chevrolet.

At Frank Kent Chevrolet, we take great pride in giving our friends and neighbors in Ennis and the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area the best possible choices when it comes to used cars for sale. From reliability to selection to price, we have all the used car choices you could need and then some.

Our Great Sales Team

When you first step onto our lot, you will meet our sales team. These professional men and women know all the ins and outs of every vehicle we have to offer. From the horsepower of a Chevy Silverado to the interior cargo space of the Chevy Suburban to how fast a Chevy Corvette can glue you to your seat, we have all the info you need.

We have the pleasure of dealing with customers just like you every day. Some may come in knowing that they need a pickup truck capable of hauling and towing significant weights for a job site. However, they may not know which Chevy truck can tow the right amount for them, and how that particular need factors into the expected budget. We can show you and different models, including Chevy Colorados and Silverados larger than the 1500. Some may know that they need a sport utility vehicle for a growing family, but are unsure of the differences between the Tahoe and the Suburban.

Some may only know that they need a new set of wheels. Whatever the case is, we can show you used cars, trucks, and SUVs that meet your everyday driving needs and fall within your expected budget. We know we can do this because we see drivers just like you all the time. While everyone’s driving needs are unique, everyone can still find something to drive off the Frank Kent Chevrolet lot.

Our Finance Team

Before you drive that new-to-you used car off our lot, you still have a couple more steps to make. You will next meet our finance team. We will admit that this is the least glamorous and exciting part of the car buying process, but it is perhaps the most important. You are about to commit yourself to an expensive investment. Any car, new or used, will cost more than what the average person has in his pocket at any given time. The average consumer will need financing to be able to take a new or used car home.

This can be a very tricky process for those who don’t know the rules. It involves a lot of math, serious budgeting, and personal history. It can be overwhelming to the uninitiated. Fortunately for you, our expert financiers know all the rules. We can deftly guide you through all the hoops and ladders you will encounter in this process.

We also know that you may be eligible for discounts, rebates, and special deals. Many people do not know that major automakers like Chevy and the rest of the General Motors family offer these options for select individuals. People like educators, first responders, college students, and those who work for a corporate sponsor may be eligible for these discounts. These could potentially save you a lot of money. We can check and see if you are applicable. Who doesn’t love saving a ton of money on a used car?

Most importantly, though, is that we know this is a serious investment. We want you to be absolutely crystal clear on what you are getting into before you sign on the dotted line and drive off. The last thing we want is for a deal you made with us to hurt your credit score, not to mention affecting our future business relationship. We are here for you today and hopefully for years and years to come.

Our Service Department

Speaking of years to come, your last stop before showing off your used car to the Ennis area is at our maintenance department. You now know just how significant an investment you just made, and you want to make sure that your investment functions properly and gives you the expected returns for years to come. The best way to ensure that happens is to keep tip-top shape of your new vehicle.

Before you leave, you will want to speak to our service staff about setting you up with a schedule to keep your new vehicle running properly. This will entail everything from oil changes to tire rotations to fluid levels to brake checks and a lot more. Each of these procedures must be done at regular intervals in order to keep any vehicle running properly. Used vehicles need a little more attention, as they have already had a previous owner whose driving habits were most likely different than yours.

We will sit down with you and discuss your own driving habits and how they will affect a maintenance schedule. This involves things like highway vs city driving, any towing and hauling you may do, whether or not you have a heavy gas and brake foot (we don’t judge, don’t worry), and more. Each of these factors leads to a formula that will help us best understand how to service your vehicle. For example, if you live or work on a dirt road, your filters will have to be changed much more frequently than if you spend your entire driving time on blacktop roads. The dirt particles can be catastrophic to an engine without an effective filter system in place.

Our Wonderful Community

We love working with our local Ennis residents and those from the metro area to find the perfect used car for each person. We also know how important it is to be able to have a real flesh and blood relationship with the person that sells you your next vehicle. Online shopping is a great start, but nothing beats the personal interaction that the amazing staff we have here at Frank Kent Country affords.

We will see you soon!
