About Us

Economy Auto Sales is the 2012 winner of the IIADA Quality Dealer of the Year award!

     Economy Auto Sales of Knox is a family owned and operated Buy Here Pay Here (BHPH) used car lot. At Economy Auto, we are self-financing; that is, we do all vehicle financing in house, so you don't have to deal with a large, faceless credit company. Economy Auto Sales has been helping good people with all types of credit get into reliable and affordable transportation since 1989. Furthermore, Economy Auto can help you rebuild your credit. Economy Auto pays to have all credit transactions reported monthly to Trans Union. This helps to repair and raise your credit score.

     Economy Auto Sales is a unique BHPH car lot. We report your credit monthly, whereas many sub-prime and BHPH lots do not report at all. In addition, any time you need to discuss financing or even servicing your vehicle, you will be able to meet face to face with the same people who sold you that vehicle. Economy Auto's loans and warranties are all kept in house, unlike those other guys that sell your loans and warranties, forcing you to deal long distance with people you don't know and that don't know you.
     At Economy Auto Sales, Customer service is priority one and we believe in doing everything in our power to provide the best service possible before, during, and after the sale. This attention to customer service has been recognized and talked about by our customers...
