Its nearly unheard of for a store to earn Toyota’s President’s Award in your first year as a new dealership.

What is the Presidents Award?

Each year Toyota Motor Sales recognizes its finest dealerships with the prestigious President’s Award. The President’s Award honors Toyota dealers that excel in all facets of their operations. It is recognition for dealerships that continue to go above and beyond at each customer touch point and represent the best of the best.

Toyota of Santa Fe received the President’s Award for Customer First from Toyota in its first year under the new ownership. This is highly unusual for a new dealership. Our region nominated us because they felt our dealership was able to achieve the high standings required.

What does it mean to you?

Several key areas are measured before a dealer is even considered. All of these areas have to do with how well we serve our customers. Every sale, every service is measured. This award measures how well we take care of customers like you..
