The LAcarGUY family of dealerships has been a Los Angeles fixture since "Sully" Sullivan opened his first dealership, Volkswagen Santa Monica in 1964. Today, LAcarGUY includes 10 award-winning dealerships throughout Los Angeles and a state-of-the-art body shop.
Known for its outstanding customer service, long-term relationships, and word-of-mouth marketing, LAcarGUY is the first choice when shopping for a new or used car.
As a local family-owned business, LAcarGUY is recognized as a prominent supporter of community events, charitable organizations and environmental causes. As one of the top hybrid dealers in the world, LAcarGUY is proud to lead the industry to a greener automotive future.
Community involvement has always been a priority for the LAcarGUY family, whether it's stepping in to save a school's art program (McKinley Elementary School), donating funds to charitable organizations such as Cystic Fibrosis, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Richstone Family Center or supporting cultural events (Santa Monica Pier Twilight Dance Series, Manhattan Beach Pumpkin Race, Hermosa Beach Music Festival).
Committed to changing an "environmentally-challenged" industry and protecting future generations, LAcarGUY is active in local environmental programs and initiatives. In an effort to encourage adoption of electric vehicles, LAcarGUY recently became the first automotive dealer in the country to offer electric charging stations at its dealerships that are open to the general public. In 2010, LAcarGUY introduced the new position, Manager of the Environment, for the sole purpose of helping LAcarGUY reduce its carbon footprint through employee education and infrastructure changes. On Earth Day 2010, the company launched LAcarGUY.com/green featuring its green vehicle inventory as well as green technology news and updates on LAcarGUY's internal sustainability efforts. Mike Sullivan, LAcarGUY's president, serves on the Regional Board of Directors for Global Green and Heal the Bay, on the Advisory Board for the Environmental Media Association, and currently sponsors Heal the Bay's prominent Annual Beach Report Card.
