Detail appreciation month – June 2021
June is Sentes Automotive’ s detail appreciation month across all 6 locations. Detail is a vital department for our business to serve our customers. Our skilled detail teams work tirelessly to ensure every vehicle leaves the dealership looking brand new.

Christmas lunch Dec 2020
Christmas 2020 definitely looked a little different than past years.

We look forward to getting back to our over-the-top parties in years to come.
