Owner & General Manager
With his love for the desert and off-road racing going back beyond his first Toyota truck in 1988, John never hesitated when an opportunity presented itself to partner with an existing Toyota repair shop that was struggling financially. Hoping to realize his dream of building and racing off-road race trucks, it seemed like a golden opportunity. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The company and existing management was in much worse shape than he first realized.
Moving to the front desk, hiring and building a great team, and focusing on providing the best dealership alternative for Toyota and Lexus service and repair became John's new direction. Thus, our mantra and philosophy was born:
"We put it back together the way Toyota built it."
With this as the backbone for the company's direction, years later San Diego Trux has become a well-known and respected independent service and repair center for all of your Toyota and Lexus parts and service. Come on by and say hi to John, and meet the guys. Married with children and grandchildren, off-road racing seems like a distant dream.
