At Carr Auto Group, we believe in celebrating excellence, and today, we want to extend a heartfelt shout-out to our sister store, Subaru. But that's not all! We have some incredible news to share. We recently had the privilege of hosting Jon Wenger from Subaru of America at our dealership. Jon Wenger came to Carr Auto Group to recognize the exceptional dedication and commitment of our Express Advisor, Andrew Mallea.
We had the pleasure of having Jon Wenger from Subaru of America stop by to recognize our Express Advisor, Andrew Mallea, as one of the National runners-up for a Love Promise award. This award goes to service employees who exemplify the very best in customer service and commitment to the Subaru Love Promise pillars. Andrew is one of only a handful in the nation that earned this recognition. He received a personalized Apple Air iPad as a Thank-You from Subaru of America. Thank you Andrew for all that you do!

His enthusiasm for expanding his knowledge in the automotive industry by mastering another manufacturer's intricacies is truly commendable.

This month we would like to shine a spotlight on our technician Jovani Suarez. All of our technician's voted for Jovani to be our Tech of the Month. He has been working with us for 11 years, starting as a lot valet working himself all the way up to becoming a Subaru Master Technician. He entered the car industry because he has always loved being around cars & finds excitement when he is able to diagnose a vehicle. We all love working along side Jovani because he is knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to help when needed. When he is not being a super star here, he is spending time with his family. Jovani loves being with his wife, his daughters, and his dogs. He loves the outdoors and enjoys going kayaking. Thank you, Jovani, for all that you do for us here!!!

August 2023 Beaverton Toyota Recap. We go over our Rafting Trip, Stores Relay, and Historic TXM 87% score
Beaverton Toyota Annual Deschutes River Rafting Trip 2023!
This last week we celebrated our employees by closing all four of our stores a few hours early and enjoyed our annual company picnic at Horning’s Hideout. We had a catered dinner from a local vendor, open bar and desserts as well as plenty of activities for our employees and their families. The clown show, cornhole, paddle boats, bounce houses, photo booth, and a mechanical bull were all part of the activities Carr set up for all of us. We also enjoy having a raffle during the event and some of the lucky winners walked away with $300 gift cards, an Apple Watch, a new 65in Sony T.V., an Oculus Quest, and a Traeger. We also took time to give special recognition to those loyal employees who have been with us for 10,15,20, and 25 years. Who are each rewarded with a special gift and thank you from our owners and administrative team. We want to thank everyone at Carr Auto Group who helped plan and set up the event for us, we truly appreciate it.
