We enjoy celebrating them through company and community events. Our employees are trained to provide the best care to our customers and grow within their careers.
Some of our key focuses are:
California Automotive Retailing Group has had significant growth over the past 16 years. Our first dealership opened in February of 2003. This was a very proud moment for our founder Inder Dosanjh. We have grown to over 15 dealerships over the years, including locations in Concord, Dublin, San Leandro, Fremont, Gilroy and Seaside!
As a company, we have worked hard to become successful over the years.
Since 2003, as a result of our hard work and dedication,The Dosanjh Family group of dealerships has created a strong presence in the San Francisco Bay area, encompassing 13 different manufacturers including; Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, GMC, INFINITI, Nissan, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Maserati, Alfa-Romeo, and Volkswagen.
Offering exceptional sales and service experience to our customers and a respectful and engaging place of employment is the heart of what we do. This is supported by the amount of tenure and success stories our company has. We currently have over 70 employees that have been employed with our company for over 10 years!
Although we are a large dealer group, we strive to maintain the family-run business atmosphere and culture that started us off. This is largely in part due to our founder and CEO, Inder Dosanjh and his son Jessie Dosanjh, as President and future CEO of the organization.
