Join the Family

Over the years, we are proud to say that at the Gene Pankey Motor Company, we have never ventured from our philosophy and goal of building customer relationships for life. We have sold thousands of vehicles to friends in the Puget Sound area with the knowledge that we have provided reliable transportation at very fair prices. The reward of that philosophy is that over 60 percent of our business comes from referrals and repeat customers.

For more than 29 years, the guiding principle for our company has been Rotary International's "The Four Way Test."

  • . Is it the truth?
  • . Is it fair to all concerned?
  • . Will it build good will and better friendships?
  • . Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Fleet Cars, Trucks, SUV's and Vans

Many people seem to know what a "program car" is, but not everyone is familiar with a fleet lease return vehicle. A program car is a vehicle leased for a short term to rental companies that are returned to the manufacturer who then makes them available to new car dealerships through dealer auctions. These vehicles usually have 15,000 to 25,000 miles and have been driven by a number of different drivers. A fleet lease return vehicle is released from large corporate fleets and is generally one to three years old with 20,000 to 60,000 miles and has been driven by one driver during the life of the lease.

As a fleet resale dealer, our experience and that of our customers, show these to be great vehicles. Here are some reasons why: 1) They are one owner vehicles, usually with only one driver; 2) Many are still under original factory warranty; 3) Repairs, if any, have been completed under warranty and at authorized dealer and service facilities; 4) Fleet administrators enforce rigid quality maintenance programs for these vehicles; 5) Fleets order vehicles with the most popular options and in the most popular colors; 6) Fleets order the most popular vehicle makes and models to assure resale value at lease end; 7) Depending upon mileage, our customers savings are 40 percent to 60 percent of the new car sticker price.

Some folks ask: "Is that all you offer?" The answer of course is No! While the quality fleet vehicles represent 85 percent of the Gene Pankey Motor Company sales, we are a full service used car dealership that offers a wide selection of the most popular makes and models, both import and domestic.
