Starting with West Coast Motors Ltd. in 1953 owned by Ted Jones, the West Coast Auto Group is now operated by the third generation of the Jones family. West Coast Motors Ltd. became West Coast Ford Lincoln in 1971, and West Coast Auto Group formed when West Coast Ford Lincoln joined forces with West Coast Toyota and West Coast Mazda in the late 80s. The group now includes West Coast Nissan and West Coast Kia for a total of five dealerships—all dealerships put customers and community first. [click to continue…]

An upcoming decision looms large for General Motors Company on whether it will be forced to recall up to 4.3 million vehicles due to Takata airbag inflators deemed unsafe in May 2016 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). NHTSA recalled all frontal Takata airbags that do not use a drying agent after studies linked the lack of such desiccant to propellant degradation which over time can eventually cause ruptures during normal deployment which could cause serious injury or death.

The Ram 1500 is slotted for a redesign – the only uncertainty is when it will be released. Whether it is released in 2017 or 2018 the crew or quad cab truck will retain the characteristics die-hard owners know and look for but with updated technology inside the cab and under the hood.
