Allen Samuels is back with a new dealership in Northeast Tarrant County.
The car dealer who built a national name – selected as one of America’s Elite Eight new car dealers in 1998 by TIME Magazine – has purchased the former Grubbs Infiniti building at 1661 Airport Freeway in Bedford and recently opened Allen Samuels Direct.
The dealership focuses on selling used low-mileage vehicles with less than 10,000 miles and one owner.
“When we say ‘low mileage’, almost every vehicle has less than 10,000 miles and has had only one owner,” says Tom Hervey, president and general manager of Allen Samuels Direct, and former president and general manager of Allen Samuels Dodge Hyundai in North Richland Hills.
“Every vehicle is accident-free, is covered by the original manufacturer’s factory warranty, and has the Allen Samuels 30-Day Direct Promise: If you don’t like it within 30 days or 1,000 miles, just bring it back in trade for another vehicle,” said Hervey. “It’s that simple.”
The average mileage of an Allen Samuels Direct vehicle is 9,300 miles, which is well under the limits of factory warranties, according to the dealership. The dealership currently offers 21 brands of cars, trucks and SUVs, including Dodge, Jeep, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Ford, Chevrolet, and Kia, and such luxury lines as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus and Infiniti.
Samuels sold Allen Samuels Auto Group to three of his executive managers in 2003 and they operated the company successfully before selling to AutoNation last year.
