General Info

We Develop Outstanding Relationships Where Everybody Wins.

--The CardinaleWay

In developing our founding commitment ( The CardinaleWay ), we selected key words that are as meaningful to you as they are to our mission. One of those is relationship. With every introduction, we are looking, not for a single transaction, but to develop a relationship with our customersnot just a good relationship, but an outstanding relationship that will outlast your car.

Another key element is that everybody wins. In a time when most people believe winners create losers, we endeavor to satisfy everybody involved. It means knowing our product well and our customer even better. It means listening and caring and understanding that people buy their second-most expensive item from people they trust.

Whether you are a car enthusiast, or you just need a reliable ride, the right car for you means buying exactly what you need and ideally what you want.

Over forty years ago, we entered the automobile business driven by a passion for people, and recognizing cars as a vehicle for creating meaningful connections. We also understood that helping people select, purchase and finance one of the most important tools of your daily life is a valuable pursuit. Our priority is and has always been making sure your new or used-car buying experience is both satisfying and successful.

Within the Cardinale Automotive Group, we know that satisfying a wide range of needs requires a diversity of quality cars. We offer new Audi, BMW, GMC, Harley Davidson, Hyundai, Mazda, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen cars, along with used cars, trucks and SUVs by top manufacturers.

Customers who visit our website should find current, accurate, helpful information that will lead you to your car. Those who come into our dealerships should look first for someone who can help you, and second for the car you have in mind. Most people have a sense of what you want and need; it is our job to satisfy those needs and expectations.

We are committed to helping you find the right car, assisting you in choosing the right financing options, and becoming your trusted automobile dealer. Our relationship begins with our introduction and continues through the purchase, the financing, the service of the car and beyond.

We look forward to developing an outstanding relationship with you.

  • Editorial review from Citysearch

    I would like to provide an endorsement and testimonial for your business after our successful purchase of my 2011 Toyota Venza. Chris was most helpful with her knowledge of the product and patience. My testimonial statement is as follows: ""We believe firmly that anyone who lives in South Lake Tahoe should make every effort to buy locally. This helps to keep money in our community which will then support our city and benefit all who live here. Cardinale Way provided an excellent buying experience for us and gave us the best price on our new 2011 Toyota Venza."" Please feel free to edit our comments as needed for size considerations as long as you retain the intent of the testimonial. We wish you continued success in these difficult economic times and, although I do not anticipate any service issues, I look forward to using your shop for my routine servicing needs as well. I will gladly recommend your business to anyone I know. Thanks again for your excellent service and buying experience.

  • Editorial review from Citysearch

    Derek the sales rep was very helpful, courteous and informed. Any questions I had he made sure I had correct information consulting with other managers and employees. All management and support personnel were helpful and processed info as efficiently as possible considering we were trying to do cash for clunkers and were disappointed we couldn't work out a deal on that program. We will remain an ongoing customer as long as service remains HIGH.

  • I bought my car here and so have many

    I bought my car here and so have many of my friends and everyone I have ever had to deal with there has been very helpful and professional. I would recommend Cardinale Toyota to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle or a Honda Snowblower or Generator.

  • Thank you sooooooooo much for all of

    Thank you sooooooooo much for all of your help! You are a true professional and I really appreciated the opportunity to work together. If everyone in the auto industry was like you, the phrase ""used car salesman"" would have NEVER come about. You are the BEST!!! Please let Eric and Colleen know how much I appreciate the professional manner in which they handled my situation. I will definitely be referring you to anyone that I know who's in the market for a vehicle.

  • Cardinale Way has an amazing staff.

    Cardinale Way has an amazing staff. Everyone is very welcoming and are looking for every customers best interest. They gave me a good deal on my new Toyota Tacoma. Derek did an amazing job at getting me all set up. He is very knowledgeable about cars and educated me on my truck. I also want to thank Mike and Jim for being so patient with trying to get my little credit approved. I would recommend Cardinale Way to all my friends and family! Plan to be back again someday to purchase another vehicle.

  • No pressure, honest, intelligent

    I bought a new Toyota Matrix from Derek and I am so so thrilled! Derek is awesome!! No pressure, honest, intelligent, he knows his stuff!! I see him owning his own dealership some day! I am very pleased everyone is very friendly and helpful! Especially Derek. I'd come here again.
