Now that I have my blog site up and running, I thought that Ken Nichols, myself, would write a blog of just how I found my way to selling cars/trucks. First, about my first car, a 1947 Chevrolet at I bought for $650 money that I earned working during my school vacation in the grocery store and a little help from my Mother. I was the only student in my HS that had a car, yea!  Then moved to Akron, Ohio & took a job working for Firestone T&R. In those days, I felt I was doing good, and I decided to see if I could buy a brand-new car. I loved the inviting styling of the 1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible… I couldn’t believe it, but GMAC approved my loan, and there I was in that my new Chevy Convertible, all white, lots of chrome & bright red leatherette interior, Life was good … The price was $3400.00. My how times have changed. Can you believe it?   After getting this new wonderful car, I was hooked. I always thought about selling cars, but just for some reason maybe fear of not being able to do the job, I just don’t know. I just never checked it out…  I took a lot of other jobs, over the years, and as I worked them it was always in the back of my mind why don’t you just go sell cars. So after many years, and building 2/3 houses, an offer was presented to me and I just decided to go for it…!  I first started in the retail end of the business but didn’t like the way they were dealing with customers, and that was it was not very professional… I wanted to do my it way, and that is to be professional, treat the customers the way you would want to be treated.
In 1987, I found a dealer in Scottsdale, AZ, called Linda Brock Auto Plaza. I ask for the Fleet Manager’s job, and it was a done deal. So I worked there for eight years and had a wonderful experience working for Mrs. Brock, she was a great dealership owner. After a year or so there, I seem to become her “right-hand” salesperson…  I ended up dealing with two governors of the state of Arizona.  Many professional ball players & a couple of movie stars which I never thought that I would ever meet, it was great. It has been a wonderful experience. You see the way that I take care of my customers was I was always fair, honest & upfront when quoting the customers the prices on the vehicles… My goal was always to save the customer as much money as I could, & at the same time help eliminate the hassle sometimes associated with the car buying process. Some folks think buying a car is like going to the dentist! That’s Not the way I do it…  I take any and all pain out of the process. Now, after 30 years off & on in the business, I have some customers who have purchases four/five or more vehicles from me over the years. The reason is Yes, at the end of eight years at Linda Brock Auto Plaza in Scottsdale, AZ… It was time to go to the next chapter in my auto sales career…simple, they know how I do business & there are no surprises. Just happy customers…!

Yes, at the end of eight years at the same Linda Brock Auto Plaza in Scottsdale, AZ… It was time to go to the next chapter in my auto sales career…!

The Next Chapter Was To Join The No1 Dodge Dealership In The World Earnhardts Dodge In Gilbert..! BOY WAS THAT A GREAT DECISION!!!

FORD MUSTANG MACH-E

FORD MUSTANG MACH-E…

The automakers have promised 4 years that the flood gates would be open to electric vehicles… The electric vehicle was kinda a thing … You know, the first one on your block to have a Let’s say a new Toyota Prius, or a Chevrolet Volt… I remember when the Volt first came out, and I couldn’t wait to test drive one, it was a hoot…  Well, nowadays, the whole scene has changed, to a mainstream idea in the year 2021 as many new models are hitting the showrooms… Guess what, I think the manufacturers have figured it out..!   Even nowadays the idea of an SUV or pickup truck, running on electricity is still hard to accept for most drivers, but they are slowly getting the idea… The manufactures are thinking that maybe the company call, TESLA  may have had a good thing going, so should we say they came up with a great idea…  Who so far has figured out a way to keep all the money or most of it…  Now let me go back to the beginning, of the page… Who would have ever thought that a Ford Mustang would have been produced as an electric Hot Rod…?  Not me..!

LET ME SHARE W YOU MY INFO ON MY 2019 MADZA CX-5 GRAND TOURING RESERVE AWD

REVIEW OF MY 2019 MAZDA CX5  GRAND TOURING RESERVE AWD

Now, I have had a “Lot” of vehicles, almost 50. This was my first time deciding to purchase a MAZDA… I don’t know why, I just never for some reason wanted Mazda… Now that I have had this SUV, I have should have looked at this product much earlier.  Now, why did I choose this one at this time… I am getting much older (Younger) right?  I was looking for Safety… This SUV has it all … Now when I took the test drive.  Wow, through the front window shield was a display of the miles per hour that I am driving, also the lines on each side of the road were there… So as I drove along the street if I accidentally drifted onto one side or the other line, it started flashing on and off with a beep letting me know to get back in your lane…  Also, when you come to a red stop-lite, it is displayed on the windshield…  Now you’re on the road, you see the speed limit signs in your windshield. You also see your speed… You can set it to let you know when & if you exceed the speed limit… I have never had this type of option on a vehicle before, and I just love it. I want to make sure that the next vehicle I get, has it for sure… Now there are so many options on this SUV I am going to list the titles.  Maybe later some additional options under them but there are so many Engine and MECHANICAL FEATURES/ 2.5 4 Cyl, INCLUDING N I27 HP 310 LB-FT TORQUE  Now this engine has so much get-up when you need it,  I was soooo surprised… I wish that I could have time to list all the options that this vehicle has, it is just unbelievable… It is such a joy to drive and own… If you want more detailed info on this vehicle, just shoot me an email, and will send you the window sticker which lists everything…  The MSRP is $33,895 that also includes power moon roof and side rails, and destination fees… If you are looking for a great SUV, give this one a look at.  You will be glad you did. This one says Luxury Out Loud, with all leather interior, Bose sound system, 19″ Alloy Wheels… It’s a great buy… Oh, I forgot one thing, if you get a speeding ticket in this Mazda with Heads-Up Display It will be your fault, sorry to say…  This SUV has made me a believer in MAZDA … Take the time to check one out and I think you will see what I am talking about…!                                                                            LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I have the contacts to get you the best price on this vehicle…!     The Price That I Quote You, Will Be The Price When You Go For Your Test Drive…  It Will Include All Dealer Discounts, Fleet Disc ?, Rebates, Sales Tax, LIC & Dealer Doc Fees, Total Price Out The Door… All You Have To Do Is The Test Drive…!

 

IS VALUE IN A NAME, ” HONDA “

IS THERE A VALUE IN THE NAME ” HONDA “…?

The right answer to this post’s name is:  YES, YES YES & how many times that you can say I own a Honda, and I & you will just love it… Yes, it is almost like anyone who has owned a Honda, is that it is one of the most reliable vehicle brands that you could own… Now let me say, I, for one, have owned at least three, (3) yes I said that… Here’s my list … The first one was a 1995 Honda Accord 4-door sedan, Bronze in color…  It was like I said a very reliable vehicle that my wife drove to work for years and years, and then it became my daughter’s car that she needed to drive to ASU in Tempe, AZ which was quite a few miles from our house in North Phoenix… That means a lot of driving and a lot of more miles, which is over 100k at this time… Then on to ours or my 7th vehicle later, we purchased another Honda, and it was a 2003 Honda CRV Silver in color… Now just keep this in the back of your mind… This was the 34th vehicle that I have owned… Also, along with the first one, this one was so reliable, and fun to drive.  Maybe a little more, because you sit up a little higher, but not much.  We loved it, and also it seems that my wife drove it much more than I… Then after that Honda CRV, for some unknown reason as of this time of writing, we left Honda CRV and went into a couple of Hyundai Santa Fe, 2004 & 2006… Again, I don’t quite remember just & what happens, but we found ourselves getting back into another Honda CRV 2008, vehicle No 37 if You can believe that… Now I am guessing that by now you have figured out just why all of this has happened, I mean all these vehicles… Yes, we really have enjoyed all the Honda’s… But I think you have figured it out by now, that when you get into the car business, it’s almost like working at your favorite donut shop, and over time almost each & every flavor becomes inviting..!  And as Walter Cronkite used to say, That’s the rest of this part of my story…!

NOW JUST KEEP IN MIND, THAT I CAN HELP YOU FIND HONDA, HYUNDAI, KIA, DODGE, RAM, JEEP, CHRYSLER, OR TOYOTA OR WHATEVER MODEL THAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR HERE IN THE PHOENIX VALLEY.   I HAVE CONTACTS WITH THE MGT /FLEET DEPTS OF THE DEALERSHIPS OF MOST OF THE MAKES AND MODELS… YOU CAN SAVE MONEY AND TIME USING MY  FREE-UP-FRONT-FLEET-PRICING -SAVING-PROGRAM… ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS, ” THE fact that TEST  DRIVE  & APPROVE THE VEHICLE  ”  I will do the negotiating on your behalf for the very best price, using all fleet & retail rebates, including the sales tax, license fees, and the dealer doc fees, equals the total cost out-the-door…  I will quote you the price via phone, text, or email… THAT PRICE WILL BE THE PRICE AT THE DEALERSHIP WHEN YOU GO FOR YOUR TEST DRIVE AND APPROVE THE VEHICLE…                       IF  YOU  HAVE ANY QUESTION, PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL ON MY GOOGLE NO: 602-935-5206, OR MY EMAIL: Redwagoncars [at] gmail [dot] com
