In West Virginia, pickup trucks seem to rule the roads, and so it’s not surprising that Henry Marino’s Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall in Nitro tries to maintain a good selection of quality, pre-owned trucks for customers to choose from.
Located at 400 First Ave., Nitro, near the foot of the Nitro-St. Albans Bridge, Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall has late model and older trucks to choose from.
Tom Elgin, a salesman at Town & Country, said trucks always sell well, regardless of the season.
“We’re really good on trucks right now. We’ve got a bunch of four-wheel-drive trucks, mostly Rams,” Elgin said. “They’re late models — ‘16s and ‘17s.”
Town & Country also has some nice older model trucks for sale, including a few four-wheel-drive 2012 GMC trucks.
“They have low miles – under 60,000 miles,” Elgin said. “One of them is a one-owner truck.”
One of the used GMCs is a Quad-Cab, Z-71 package model.
“It gives you off-road (capability) with skid plates and off-road shocks.”
At press time, Town & Country also had a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado truck with a 6-inch lifted suspension. The truck has 76,000 miles on the odometer.
“It’s a Crew Cab,” he said.
Sport Utility Vehicles are also popular, and, at press time, Town & Country had a nice 2016 GMC Terrain, Denali edition, with about 50,000 miles on the odometer.
Sports cars and convertibles can also be found at Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall. On display in the showroom is a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette, Indy 500 Pace Car edition, with only 7,000 miles on the odometer. It’s priced at $31,900.
Corvettes are popular with sports car enthusiasts.
“We had a Corvette in here the other day that sold within a week’s time. It was a ’08 model with 42,000 miles. We had people calling about it from Kentucky and everywhere.”
Every used car, truck or SUV sold at Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall gets checked out in the dealership’s service department. Town & Country is one of the few used car dealers in the area to have its own service department.
Town & Country’s service department is open to anyone, regardless of where they purchased their vehicles. The service department offers a variety of routine repair and maintenance services, including state inspections.
In addition to check-ups in the service department, each vehicle at Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall comes with a Carfax report, which details its ownership history and service history.
“All of our cars have Carfaxes in the windows,” Elgin said.
Town & Country General Manager Chris Marino said a Carfax report “will tell you how many owners it’s had, but it won’t show you who owned it.”
A Carfax report will also list how many oil changes a vehicle has had as well as other service-connected issues.
The Carfax reports will also reveal if a vehicle has been in an accident.
“If it’s a minor accident, it’s usually scratches and dents to the body surface,” Marino said. “And sometimes it will tell you that not all damage was caused by an accident. It could have been backed into a pole.”
Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall is owned by Henry Marino, who has more than 50 years of experience in the car business. He and his son, Chris, invite everyone to stop by and check out their latest selections of used vehicles.
