About Martin Chevrolet

Martin Chevrolet leads Southern California Chevy dealerships through innovation and transparency.  General Manager Lewis Cook is on hand 6-days a week.  

He loves to share the behind the scenes details of how the automotive business really works.  For instance, Lewis readily admits the car buying "process sucks."

Also, Lewis and I recorded a podcast on buying vs. leasing.  And in that, he shared this great piece of advice.  If you go over miles on your lease, as part of your negotiation, a "dealer can absorb some of that."

So, stay tuned for additional great behind the scenes details on the automotive business from our partnership with Martin Chevrolet.

Me & Mr. Jake


Tom Smith here, owner of iDriveSoCal.

I love cars but hate the old school buying process.

So, I created iDriveSoCal to help out fellow wary car buyers. :0)

You and I learn insider information on how the car business really works from transparent car dealers willing to share.

And, mention me and iDriveSoCal to any of our dealer partners and enjoy serious VIP treatment and buying benefits! ;0)

Beyond car buying, I also share easy to understand vehicle reviews without too much technical jargon.

Plus, I cover automotive events and museums while tracking what’s real and hype in the future of transportation.

Email questions and thoughts – I love connecting.

Drive on!
