The Power of Giving Back 

At Longo, doing good for our community and charity partners comes naturally.  

For nearly five decades, we have been actively involved in causes that make a positive difference to our neighbors and team members – from education and children’s welfare to health and wellness programs.

Through the continuous support from our guests, and participation from our staff, we are able to do what we do. Thank you for allowing us to give back!

Our community partnership comes to life every Saturday when high school students participate at our fundraiser program to raise $500 in exchange for helping our Service Department operations.

Gone in Sixty Seconds: Americans Take Home a Camry Every Minute in May

By the time you read this, at least one more Camry will likely be off the market.

Even if you’re an exceptionally fast reader.

For the month of May, consumers bought just over one Camry per minute. Overall, 49,584 Camrys found their way to a customer’s driveway last month. That’s a rate of 1.1 every 60 seconds. 

“There’s a reason Americans choose Camry, and it shows in sales month after month,” said Bob Carter, vice president of automotive operations for Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. “It’s America’s best-selling car, but more important is the one Camry in the customer’s driveway. The one Camry that gets you and your family to work, school, vacation, the Camry that works in a business enterprise, the one Camry you trust to be reliable and help keep your family safe.”
