    Customer Reviews:
    “Easy, fast, and amazing service! I found my truck online, applied, got a call to pick up my truck. It was that easy! Customer service was the best I’ve ever experienced! Uvaldo B. was very helpful and friendly and helped the process go very smoothly. Staff was even great with my kids. Offered them colors and drinks and not once did I feel like my toddlers were a bother. Thank you San Marcos Toyota.”-Florinda Gonzales
    “I definitely recommend San Marcos Toyota for both sales and service. I brought in my 16 year old Toyota Matrix to be repaired that had engine issues…after finding out that it was going to cost several hundred dollars to fix, I thought about trading it in for a newer pre-owned vehicle. The salesperson, Ubaldo, found a comparable mid sized SUV that fit the specs I was looking for, with a factory warranty. He was able to negotiate a deal that was around my financing budget, with very little money down and an exceptional deal for the trade. I didn’t feel like it was a high stress or pushy sale, I confidently left with a good deal on a 1 year old vehicle. Andrew, my service advisor also did a great job working with me and coordinating with Ubaldo to make the trade and sale happen fast. This was a much better experience than the last few cars I’ve purchased elsewhere. Thanks San Marcos Toyota!”-Justin N

    Name: Charles Shaw

    Nickname: Charlie, Chuck, Chaz

    Position: Sales & Leasing Consultant

    Hometown: McAllen, Texas

    Time with SMT: 2 Years

    Family:

    Both sides of my family have deep Texas roots, but unfortunately none of those roots ever struck oil. I can provide you with some free oil, you only have to purchase the fancy container!

    Past Employment:

    I have been blessed to have a career as a sales consultant for over 40 years. In that time, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many people from different backgrounds and industries.

    Favorite Place and Fun:

    Nothing better than jumping on a tube after work to float down the San Marcos river on a summer evening and enjoying a beautiful sunset. Fun is riding my Vespa Scooter to Gruene Hall for a concert and dancing. I am a proud supporter of Health Assistance for Austin Musicians (donate at www.myhaam.org).

    Local Place to Eat:

    It’s against the law (criminal code MXPLT$8.95) in San Marcos to pick any other place then Herbert’s as number one place to eat. Grin’s Southwest Burger also keeps me fat and happy, plus they make my fries extra crispy when I ask. Italian Garden is a hidden gem and you can’t forget the Chili Dog Trailer. Simple and great!

    Favorite Movie:

    Big Lebowski is the best movie ever. “The Dude Abides”. Monty Python is a close second because everyone should know “the velocity of an unladen swallow.”

    Favorite Toyota Model:

    My favorite Toyota is any one that puts an excited smile on our clients face when I hand them the keys!

    Favorite Things about San Marcos Toyota:

    SMT has a great atmosphere with fantastic chemistry between showroom, service department, and management. Also, Toyota owners are just the best people to work with as they realize the quality and value that Toyota models offer, making my job the best in the Auto Industry.

    Customer Reviews:
    “Charles Shaw was the best! I had an amazing car buying experience and look forward to working with San Marcos Toyota more in the future. I’ve had my 2018 Highlander XLE for a little over a month now and grow to love it more everyday. I recently picked up SIX dining room chairs that all fit comfortably with my two back rows flattened. It was fantastic! This vehicle is so versatile. Thank you, Charles and team, for helping me find and buy my dream car!”-Alex Middlebrook
