Are you embarrassed to be seen in your car? Do you softly encourage your vehicle to start and stay running? If you answered “yes” to one or both of these questions head to Thompson’s Toyota or Thompson’s Buick GMC in Placerville where you’ll undoubtedly find your next dependable and stylish ride.

“We are a family of automotive dealerships featuring new and certified pre-owned Toyotas, Buicks and GMC vehicles, as well as a Certified Pre-owned Center in Cameron Park,” said Jeff Thompson, executive general manager. “We also offer 150 to 180 pre-owned vehicles of all makes and models at all times.”

And with that healthy selection, including the best-selling Prius, comes great customer service. The goal, according to Thompson, is to “build customers for life.”

“The Thompsons family of automotive dealerships takes pride in exceeding our customers’ expectations by empowering our associates to make a positive difference for our customers’ experience every day,” he explained.

“What sets us apart from all others in our industry is the honest value we give to our customers every day,” Thompson continued. “We take pride in being able to offer more for less and we do it with integrity and a commitment to customer satisfaction.”

Customers rave about Thompsons on the dealerships’ Websites.

“Our car buying experience was fantastic, easy and painless,” wrote Blane and Patricia from Pollock Pines.

“We will be returning to Thompson’s Toyota for all future vehicle purchases. The experience was quick and easy,” Adam, Liz and Toby posted on the Website.

In addition to award-winning products and stellar customer service, Thompsons also offers quality parts and expert service with two full factory certified parts and service facilities for Toyota, Buick  and GMC, as well as a service center staffed with factory trained Ford, Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep technicians, including diesel specialists, according to Thompson. “We also perform DMV smog checks at all three locations and offer motor home service and repair,” he added.

Thompsons has served El Dorado County (and many customers from throughout Northern California and beyond) since 1989. Today Jeff Thompson and his father, dealership founder Ron Thompson, oversee 111 employees, people Jeff calls “finest people I know.” He also said the family enjoys serving, on all levels, the community where they live.
