Business at local Toyota, Nissan dealers unaffected by earthquake

Business at Fredericksburg-area dealerships that sell Japanese cars has not been significantly affected by the severe recent earthquake in Japan, executives at the two companies say. Nissan and Toyota are both Japanese companies, but much of their production is in the U.S., noted Clay Huber, president of Rosner Auto Group (which has Toyota dealerships in Spotsylvania and Stafford counties), and Tim Pohanka, general manager of the Nissan dealership in Spotsylvania’s Four-Mile Fork area.

Both Huber and Pohanka said they are concerned for the victims of the earthquake. Huber said a portion of Rosner Auto’s sales in April will go to relief efforts in Japan. Pohanka said Nissan and its dealers have been making online donations to the American Red Cross, and that Nissan of the Americas will match all gifts up to $500,000.
