Lithia Motors buys Toyota Scion dealership in Lodi, Calif.

 Posted: 2:00 PM October 17, 2013

Medford-based Lithia Motors has once again added to its holdings in California's Central Valley.

The nation's ninth-largest auto retailer is acquiring Geweke Toyota Scion in Lodi from Yuba City, Calif.-based Geweke Auto Group, which made the announcement Wednesday.

Lithia does not comment on such deals prior to closing.

Earlier this month, Lithia purchased Stockton Nissan Kia and will rename the dealership Nissan and Kia of Stockton.

The Stockton Record reported Geweke employed 72 people at the Lodi dealership and said Lithia would retain as many as possible.

Geweke has been Lodi's Toyota franchisee since 1991 and previously operated Ford and Chrysler shops there as well.
