101 Budget Auto
By Desiree Gaoiran, Staff Writer
Published in the August 22, 2013 edition

Did you know that 101 Budget Auto serves as Coos Bay Toyota’s budget lot? 90% of their inventory comes from the Toyota store and usually anything over 75,000 miles goes to this lot. Rick Brown, sales manager of 101 Budget Auto, was born and raised in Coos Bay. He began as the sales manager for 101 Auto in January of last year, but has been with Toyota since 2000. “Business is great,” he says. “We get a lot of repeat customers.”

Rick says, “We do things differently here compared to other car lots. Usually, when a customer goes to a car lot they end up with a sales person and then there is a lot of back and forth between your salesman and sales manager. But when you come here, your salesperson doesn’t deal with the financial aspect of things. Most customers expect a lot of back and forth.” Rick is the only person you can expect to talk numbers with and many customers leave very happy about that!

Since 101 Budget Auto is connected to Toyota all their cars go through the service department and they complete a thorough safety inspection. Rick says, “We aren’t going to sell anything that isn’t safe and if there is something wrong after you buy it, we will try to help you.” Because they are attached to a franchised dealer, Rick has access to all of the same finance companies that Coos Bay Toyota does. Usually when you purchase a car from a used lot the only option is in-house financing. Rick says that most of the time he can get anyone into a car, as long as they have a job and a down payment, and he always aims to find the right car for each customer! In addition, if you purchase a car from 101 Budget Auto you will receive free car washes for as long as you own the vehicle!

If you have any questions you can call Rick or one of the knowledgeable salesmen during business hours (541) 269-2529. They are open Monday thru Saturday from 9am to 6pm.You can even find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/101budgetauto or visit their website at www.101budgetautosales.com.
