Utah's Number One Source for Quality Used Cars
How many car dealers do you know that you could stop by their business just to socialize? That’s what they encourage at Peterson Auto Sales any time if you’re looking for a friendly face.
At the same time, if you’re looking for a used car, you can turn to a company I trust, and that’s Peterson Auto Sales.
I trust this company because we have investigated their history, licensing, and their customer service. Further, Peterson Auto Sales has agreed to follow the Gephardt Approved Auto Dealers Code of Ethics, which goes above and beyond state and federal laws in the treatment of customers. As a result, I trust and endorse Peterson Auto Sales and I am proud to declare them Gephardt Approved.
"We have a large circle of repeat customers…”
- Jeanne Peterson, Owner, Peterson Auto Sales
Owner Jeanne Peterson says Peterson Auto Sales was founded in 1965 as a family owned and operated company. She says that they are celebrating their 30th year in business this year. “We have a large circle of repeat customers,” says Jeanne. “75% of our business is based on return customers.”
"Customers are known to return to Peterson Auto Sales to trade in or upgrade a car, " Jeanne tells us, "but customers are also welcome just to stop by. We stay connected with our customers,” says Jeanne. “We’ve watched their kids grow up.”
“…always a fair deal…”
- Craig Thompson, customer
Craig Thompson tells us he’s personally bought 18 cars from Peterson Auto over the last 20 years. “The first time I went in there I saw a car I wanted, and I told Jeanne just give me a fair price. I told her I knew she had a job to do, and just be fair. Ever since then that’s all I have to do. I think I’m responsible for 40 cars sold, because I’ve referred my friends and family there. It’s always had a fair deal.”
Craig also enjoys the family setting at Peterson Auto Sales. “How many car dealers do you know that you invite to your kid’s wedding? I have. I feel like they are part of my family. I probably visit them once a month.”
“We want to be your car guy.”
- Jeanne Peterson, owner
Jeanne tells us their business philosophy is to take the soft sales approach. “We don’t call and hound people if they want to think about it. We want to be your car guy, but we go about it differently. We offer a large selection of quality cars and trucks with a variety of financing options. Our customers trust us so much that they buy the car right off the lot without test driving it.”
Jeanne’s approach to selling cars is recognized by customers and the car industry. Adam Jones, the Executive Director of the Independent Automobile Dealers Association of Utah tells me Peterson Auto Sales won the Utah Quality Dealer of the Year Award. Jones says Dealers are judged for the award by the Board of Directors, which look at Ethics and Outstanding Community Involvement.
For Jeanne, it’s all about the love of cars. “When I was growing up our dinner table conversation was always about cars. It turned into a love of cars.”
So there you go: Peterson Auto Sales. Now you know what I know about their history, licensing, and the way they treat their customers.
Now you know why I trust Peterson Auto Sales and why I am proud to declare them Gephardt Approved.
