You can (and you should). Here are a few reasons why now is the best time to buy a car. 

If you’re thinking about buying a car during the coronavirus, there are a few things you should know. 


Auto sales are now open in all 50 states so if you’re in need of a new car––this would be the perfect time to buy! Because of the dramatic dip in auto sales for the month of March 2020 due to Coronavirus, car prices have dropped to an all-time low and deferred financing options are available. With exceptional offers like 0% APR for 72 months and deferred payments for up to 6 months on select new and used vehicles—you can buy a car with peace of mind even during COVID-19 restrictions.


For your safety, the Bob Penkhus team is going the extra mile to create a sterile environment in our showrooms and inventory while working with car buyers to find their perfect vehicle. We have new Volvos, Mazdas, Volkswagens, and Mitsubishis and over 400 used cars with financing options and price-match programs to fit any budget and price range. 


All of our locations reopened to the public on May 3, 2020, and in-person sales, appointments, and walk-ins are currently available. As we work to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and faithful customers, we are adhering to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommendations for safety listed below:  


Our COVID-19 Showroom Safety Protocol 

  • Customers and staff must maintain a social distance of at least 6ft at all times.

  • We will provide medically-approved masks for all customers and employees to wear upon request. 

  • We will maintain a clean and sterilized environment by undergoing CDC recommended sanitation efforts and disinfecting our showrooms on an hourly basis. 

  • After every test drive, each vehicle will be sterilized and cleaned from top to tire in order to provide the highest level of sanitization for the next driver.  

Don’t want to come to the showroom? No problem. 

We’ve provided a way for our self-quarantined customers to enjoy the car buying experience right from the comfort of their couch. So, stay put and we’ll come to you. (It’s totally touch-free.) 


Our Stay-at-Home Car Buying and Service Experience 

  • Schedule a virtual sales appointment with our knowledgeable sales associates via FaceTime or Zoom. 

  • We’ll virtually walk through the vehicle with you on the call showing you all of the car’s features, accessories, and amenities. 

  • Want to test drive? We’ll bring the car to you—completely clean and sanitized from top to tire, ready for you to drive.  

  • Need your car serviced? We’ll pick up, service, sanitize, and deliver your vehicle back to your home or office (without you ever having to leave). 

  • Want to purchase? We’ll happily deliver your new vehicle straight to your driveway––clean, sanitized, and ready to drive. 


At Bob Penkhus, your safety is our top priority. And we’ll keep doing all that we can to keep you safe and healthy as you buy your next vehicle from Bob Penkhus throughout and after Covid-19.


As always, we’re here for you.
