Welcome to Lake Charles Toyota!

We do more than sell cars!

Lake Charles Toyota is a dealership owned and managed by Philip Tarver and his wife DeWanna. They are lifelong residents of Southwest Louisiana. We probably already know you and your family by name! More importantly, "knowing you by name" is a statement of how we are going to treat you whether we grew up with you, or are just meeting you for the first time. We are your hometown friends, and that's how we like to do business. Our managing owner is Philip Tarver, President and General Manager. He has been associated with the car business for over 30 years, and has owned Lake Charles Toyota for over 20 years. You can expect to see him here in the store whenever you come in. You will also see he and his family at local functions and at every McNeese Football and basketball game!

Philip and his staff have received many awards from Toyota for excellence in customer relations, parts, and service. They have also received wide acclaim for their support of our community's activities. They have served on the boards of directors of the Chamber Southwest Louisiana and the McNeese Foundation. Philip has served on the Calcasieu Parish School Board, and the dealership is active as a partner in education with F.K. White Middle School. Philip is a proud member of the McNeese State Cowboy Club, Wheel Club and Quarterback club. A graduate of LaGrange and a true Gator, his wife and sons are Bucs from Barbe High School. Lake Charles High Wildcats, Washington Marion Indians, Sulphur Tors, Westlake Rams, Sam Houston Broncos, DeRidder Dragons, South Beauregard Golden Knights, Kinder Yellow Jackets and St Louis Saints and South Cameron Tarpons are all represented on our staff. From Football, baseball, soccer and basketball to ladies softball, track and Beta, we have you covered.

Our mission at Lake Charles Toyota is to win you over as a customer for life. We do that by developing a personal relationship with you so that we may fully understand your automotive wants and needs. Then, we do whatever it takes, not just to sell you a vehicle, but to bring you back again and again. Free WiFi and beverages are always included to help keep you connected. We also have a children's play area for the little ones while you wait. Come in for for a test drive and let us prove to you why we should be your hometown dealer.
