Purchasing a used vehicle can be a chore, when it should be fun. At least Toyota of Olympia thinks it should be. That’s why this long-time local business has made it its mission to bring the fun back to car buying. Their new Tumwater location has acres of used cars to give you the best selection of makes and models. Pair selection with their experienced, knowledgeable and friendly sales staff, Toyota of Olympia will be the only place you need to shop for your next vehicle. And they are conveniently located just off I-5 in Tumwater on Tyee Drive near Home Depot, easy to find without the headaches of traffic and parking.
We all know the “car shopping blues.” In fact, some dread it even though the prospect of a “new to you” car is thrilling. Erik Martinson, of the Toyota of Olympia sales team, says he didn’t want to be a car salesman because of the general stereotype of the profession. However, once he started working at Toyota, his attitude changed quickly.
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.”
Kozal Peth, another sales associate, has worked for Toyota of Olympia for over 18 years. While he also wasn’t sure if it was the right career for him when he first started, the support he gained from his co-workers has kept him going. “Now it’s been 18 years,” he says.
Both Kozal and Erik say they stayed because of the culture that Toyota of Olympia fosters.
More Value for Your Money
Nobody wants a lemon, which can make purchasing a used vehicle stressful. Part of Toyota of Olympia’s dedication to their customers includes their Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. While some used cars are sold “as-is,” most come with the warranty. It’s all part of making car shopping fun again.
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 do our own certification process through Toyota of Olympia, specifically,” explains Erik. “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,” adds 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.
Wide Selection and Great Deals
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. 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 wide 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 RAV 4,” 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.
Toyota of Olympia’s online inventory is a great place to start when shopping for a used vehicle. They often have special deals and coupons including offers such as Instant Savings that are a good off-the-internet price. You can also pre-shop online and see what cars are available. Shop in the comfort of your sweatpants 24/7 at the Toyota of Olympia’s website for the new (to you) car of your dreams.
