VICTORVILLE, Calif. – Since Valley Hi Toyota’s New Car Giveaway of a 2017 Toyota iA was announced last Tuesday on Facebook Live, over 50,000 people seen the revealing of their first ever New Car, over 3,000 clicked on the post, and 45 share Facebookers shared the post to their timeline, yet only 150 people showed up to the Victorville Toyota dealership to sign up so far.
“I feel that people think they have no shot to win, so they don’t bother to enter,” said Brian Ortega, Social Media Marketing Manager at Valley Hi Toyota. Everyone of our previous Used Car Winners would say, ‘I’ve never won anything in my life- I never win.’ “We’ve made this an extremely easy process to enter the new car giveaway. All you have to do is visit the dealership (during normal business hours) and take 2 minutes to answer 10 questions on an iPad-that’s it!”
During the broadcast, General Manager Todd Stokes jokes about the ease of entry, “It’s that easy! You don’t have to take a test drive or fill out hours of paperwork, you just visit us during our Open House.” While you’re checking out the new facility, grab some snacks, enjoy a fresh cup of coffee, and even check out the new 2018 Toyota Camry.
Odds of winning are based on the number of entries, and with only 150 people on the list so far, chances are definitely higher than the prior 14 used car giveaways, which averaged 3,000 entries. The last day to enter is Monday, November 27. Twenty-five randomly selected finalists will be notified for an exciting event at the dealership on December 4th where the winner will be selected.

“We wanted to get High Desert businesses involved as well,” said Stokes. “Every entry for the car also has a chance to win prizes from businesses like Bella Mia, Gridiron Pizza, Nutrishop, Inland Pro Plumbing, Car-B-Q Events, and Audiotistics.” Valley Hi Toyota will go on Facebook Live announcing winners of these prizes throughout November.
Stokes continued, “All month long we’ve committed to working with Get Air Victorville, which is raising money during Breast Cancer Awareness Month for the Komen Foundation.” For every car sold in the month of October, Valley Hi Toyota is donating $1 towards cancer research.
“We were happy to contribute a Family 5 pack as a prize for the Car Giveaway! But we’re even more excited that Valley Hi Toyota is contributing to the cause,” said Gabriel Navarro, Park Manager at Get Air Victorville.”
The dealership is living up to its tagline as “Your Community Dealership” by providing the High Desert numerous ways of getting involved and by giving back.
“2 minutes and 19 seconds is all it takes for someone to drive home in a new 2017 Toyota,” smiles Ortega. “It takes longer to wait in line to get a hot dog and soda at Costco across the street than to sign up to win a new car.”
