Best Dealership

We were very happy with our purchase from Bob`s Auto Sales. The Sport Trac has everything plus more. We have been given so many compliments & we are spreading the good deal to others. Couldn`t be happier with the price, friendly staff, Mike was the best salesman & explained every detail. God bless your business.


Great versatile SUV /truck.

It’s like a truck and SUV crossover. Unless you need a huge truck bed this is a great truck. Very comfortable inside. Great performance. Smooth ride.
