PONTOON BEACH — M & K Auto Sales is celebrating 15 years in business and, according to its owners, reaching for the best satisfaction for all of its customers.
Owner Kirk Salas and Mark Walters say they owe their success to their “wonderful customers.”
Salas is no stranger to the car business. He spent 20 years with Carlson Oldsmobile Honda. After branching out on his own in 1995, he began doing business with Glenn Walters, working wholesale for three years.
It is there he met Walters’ son, Mark. In 1999, he and Mark Walters opened their own business, now known as M & K Auto Sales.
Salas said he’s always had a passion for this type of business.
M & K Auto Sales, a retail business, purchases reconditioned vehicles from dealerships.
“I have my own specific mechanic check the cars out to make sure they are in the best quality condition,” Salas said.
M & K goes through a few secondary financial sources and credit unions for ownership to the cars on the lot.
Salas said he owes a lot of the success to his customers and his sales staff, including salesman Nick Huniak.
“We have a lot of repeat customers, and a lot of customer referrals,” he said.
Salas said all cars have a 30-day warranty, and depending on the year of the car, a one- to four-year warranty can be purchased as well.
“We depend on our good name and cars that we sell to our customers,” he said. “We always want the customers to be happy. We won’t deliver a car from our lot unless it has been inspected and reconditioned.”
M & K has a wide variety of vehicles, including cars, trucks and jeeps.
M & K Auto Sales, 3940 Pontoon Road, is open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, and 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday.
