Why Recalls are a Good Thing

Recall

Automakers everywhere issue recalls on, what seems like, a daily basis. From the ignition switch to the airbag, we have all heard [and worried] about these problems.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issue over 600 recalls a year in an effort to reduce injuries and fatalities on our roads. However, the issuance of recalls does not necessarily mean vehicles are becoming more dangerous.

In an effort to avoid automotive related injuries, automakers will issue their own recalls anytime a concern may arise. These recalls are actually good for the consumer creating an improved product.

Weekend Road Trips

Posted on: January 13, 2015

Do you ever just want to get up go? Well, we’ve put together some great ideas for you weekend warriors who just need to get away. Here are a few quick roadtrips that every San Diegan should experience at least once in their life.

Joshua Treejoshua tree

There’s a Bear Grylls in us all and Joshua Tree is the place to unleash your rustic outdoorsman side. With miles and miles of Joshua trees and desert chaparral, the scene is like that of a fairy tale. The surrounding area makes it impossible not to explore what’s around you. The trails can be pretty unforgiving during the hotter months; we are in the desert. However, no desert is complete without thriving oases. Spend your day hiking to one of five of these desert oases and you’ll finish your day feeling completely accomplished.

Need more of a challenge? Joshua Tree welcomes rock climbers and boulderers from around the world! There are thousands of climbing routes available no matter your climbing experience. However, be sure to come accompanied with an experienced climber to avoid any possible injuries during your endeavour.

Posted on: December 5, 2014

We, at Toyota of El Cajon, pride ourselves on what we give back to the community. As a family owned and operated dealership we strive for a future that our children can be proud to live in.

Aside from what we try to accomplish as a dealership, we have many associates that share our passion for a better future. Our Internet Assistant, Brandi Martin, has created her own non-profit to help the hungry people that fill our streets in San Diego. Brandi had a goal this past Thanksgiving to feed 100 hungry people in San Diego.

Equipped with her own kitchen, food donations, and the help of a handful of friends and family, Brandi exceeded her goal and fed well over 100 of the homeless and hungry in San Diego. OurLove.Org is dedicated “to provide our community with resources needed for everyday survival. [They] want to be the bridge between people in need and those who are inspired to help.”

What is a LEED Certified Business?

Posted on: October 10, 2014

Our loyal customers know us here at Toyota of El Cajon as the friendly dealership that they can count on for generations. We take great pride in the satisfaction we are able to deliver with our services and products. However, what most of you don’t know is that our dedication to the community goes beyond our cars!

When we had the opportunity to move into our current building in 2009, we wanted to do more than provide great cars and truly exceptional services to our friends and neighbors. We wanted to give our future generations the opportunities they deserve. How do we do that, you ask? Well, we got ourselves and our buildings LEED Certified!

So what is LEED? What does it mean to be LEED Certified?

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, it is an internationally recognized certification and rating system issued only by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to improve the built environment.
