Texas dealer Clarence Kahlig has always believed in his group's used-vehicle business. And pandemic-strained 2020 has only strengthened that conviction.
Kahlig Auto Group through the years has tried to keep its sales volume of used vehicles close to that of new vehicles. In 2019, it sold slightly more new vehicles than used, 19,275 new to 17,012 used.
"So far in 2020, it's a reverse," said Kahlig, president of the 11-store group based in San Antonio. Kahlig sold 11,422 new vehicles and 12,662 used vehicles through nearly the first nine months of the year.
