The Penkhus Motor Company that you see today had its humble beginning back in 1951 when Robert N. Penkhus moved his young family from Ames, Iowa, and opened a small used car operation in Colorado Springs. New cars were added to the operation on Pikes Peak Avenue in 1957 when he became one of the ten dealers in the United States to obtain a Volvo Franchise. In 1972 the Volvo Franchise was moved to a fledgling area of Colorado Springs called Motor City.
The combination of a quality product and a reputation for excellent customer service assured continued growth, including the addition of Mazda, an exciting new import from Japan, in October 1972 at the Pikes Peak Avenue location. In 1975, Mazda joined Volvo in Motor City to increase productivity and better serve customers.
Mr. Penkhus' son, Robert A. Penkhus, was a permanent fixture around the Dealership from an early age, so it was natural that he would join his father in the business upon his graduation from Denver University. He gradually assumed responsibility for all aspects of Dealership operations and in 1977, became President of Penkhus Motor Company.
Bob's concern for his customers and employees coupled with his enthusiasm for our products have resulted in continued success and growth. Development of a new car display area along Interstate 25 in 1987 was followed one year later by a major service and parts expansion project in which we added fourteen mechanical and detail service stalls, doubled the parts area, and built an enclosed customer service area.
Used vehicles have always been a vital part of our business and in 1997 we introduced our new Select Certified Used Vehicle Program. With this program our customers receive the benefits of a 165-point inspection, and a 3 year/100,000 mile warranty on select vehicles.
In the spring of 1999 our growth continued with the opening of our second Select Certified location and a Domestic and Import Service Center on Austin Bluffs Parkway.
Because of our commitment to excellence, we have been recognized as a Volvo Dealer of Excellence based upon customer satisfaction levels. Our future success and growth will be determined by the continued commitment of each of our team to our common goal and mission.
