If you are in the market for a quality used car, your first stop should be Toyota of Olympia, even if you are not looking for a Toyota. Why is that? Because the long-time local business has a wide selection of used cars on acres and acres at their new Tumwater location. They have many makes and models to choose from. What’s more, they offer one of the best used car warranties around. Couple that with experienced, friendly and knowledgeable sales staff, and Toyota of Olympia will probably be the only lot you have to shop.
One of those experienced, friendly and knowledgeable sales team members is Kozal Peth, who has worked for Toyota of Olympia for more than 18 years. While he wasn’t sure if it was the right career for him when he first started, the support he gained from his co-workers kept him going. “And now it’s been 18 years,” he says.
We all know the “car shopping blues.” In fact some may even dread the process, even though the prospect of a new-to-you car is thrilling. Erik Martinson, one of the members of the Toyota of Olympia sales team, said he originally didn’t want to be a car salesman, knowing the general stereotype of the profession. But that all changed when he came to work for Toyota of Olympia where “making car buying fun” is a motto they live up to everyday.
A friend had convinced him that things were different at the Rotter family-owned dealership. “So I showed up with my resume and decided to try it,” he says. “And I just fell in love with the culture of the company. The people here are extremely hard working and honest. I believe we genuinely try to give the best service possible to our customers and the best deals we can.”
Both Kozal and Erik say they stayed because of the culture that Toyota of Olympia fosters.
Selection, Choice, Variety
Toyota of Olympia offers a wider selection than you could ever imagine. At any given time, they have Subarus, Chevrolets, Hondas, Fords, even Smart cars – you name it, they will likely have it. Of course, you’ll always find a strong selection of Toyotas.
“We get cars from both purchases and from trade, so Brian Johnson, our sales manager, will purchase the cars people are looking for, like the Camry,” explains Erik. This means you will find the best-selling Camry and efficient RAV 4 almost always in stock on the used lot.
Deals abound at Toyota of Olympia’s new Tumwater location and cars with low miles and nearly new condition are the norm. The experienced sales staff know what is on the lot and where to find what you are looking for, making your buying experience stress free and efficient.
More Value for Your Money
Buying a used car can be a bit of a worry – will you end up with a lemon? Part of Toyota of Olympia’s dedication to making sure buyers have fun and get the best deal is their Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. While some used cars are sold as-is, most come with the warranty.
This warranty is different than the Toyota Certified Pre-Owned designation that other Toyota dealerships offer. It covers any make and model, not just Toyota. The warranty includes towing coverage and begins on the purchase date. “We don’t just have the Toyota Certified Pre-Owned program,” adds Erik. “We do our own certification process through Toyota of Olympia, specifically. We try to offer as many cars as we can with this warranty because we are the only ones in the region who offer it.”
“Our lifetime powertrain warranty really sets us apart,” says Kozal. “Buyers love it.”
In addition, Carfax vehicle reports and multi-point vehicle inspections mean you can rest easy knowing the used car you purchase has been thoroughly inspected and is running well – no lemons here.
Looking for a great deal? Toyota of Olympia carries a large selection of cars under $15,000, many of these with the Lifetime Powertrain warranty.
Add to the used car selection Toyota’s top-notch service and convenient new location and you have a perfect place to find your perfect car. Located just off I-5 in Tumwater on Tyee Drive near Home Depot, it’s easy to find without the headaches of traffic and parking.
