We’re getting geared up for the 2016 Wilde Lexus Women’s USTA Pro Circuit Event scheduled to begin on the 27th. We recently posted about the schedule of events and now we’re excited to show you how the oaks has been preparing for the event. Tom Whitten, tournament director, said in a statement to the Herald-Tribune, “It is such a great event, not just for the club members and tennis fans to watch but it is also a great opportunity for us to showcase the club.” So far, none of this year’s players have been announced, but with such strong past competitors like Madison Brengle, last year’s winner and currently 38th in the world, and the 2014 winner, Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, who is currently ranked 29th, we can’t wait to see who shows up.
Every third Friday of the month, we host a Wilde Lexus Breakfast Club where we can train you about all the tech aspects of your Lexus. Class begins at 9:30 and classes last approximately 1:15. A light continental breakfast will be available in the showroom. We had a great turnout at last Friday’s Breakfast Club! The next Breakfast Club will be held on March 18, 2016. Spaces do fill up quickly, so be sure to RSVP!
We had so much fun sponsoring the 2016 USTA Pro-Circuit Tour, that we are going to be the title sponsor again this year! The event is set to be just as fun as last year with WTA top 100 players expected to play and sign autographs. Furthermore, foods and drinks will be available and parking is free! If you’re looking for tickets, please call The Tennis Pro Shop at 941-966-3605. Tickets can also be purchased at the door. Cash or credit only! Tickets cost $10 Daily (Sunday 3/27- Friday 4/1 singles and doubles semi-finals held Friday). $20 (Sat 4/2-Singles Semi-Finals/ Sun 4/3-Single and Doubles Finals). You can also purchase a $50 weekly pass! Check out the schedule of events below:

Dealerrater has announced this year’s Dealer of the Year for each brand and we are excited to announce that we’ve won for Lexus! Winners are determined by a calculation called PowerScore, which considers the dealership’s average DealerRater star-rating as well as the total number of reviews written about the dealership during the calendar year. Categories for scoring include customer service, quality of work, friendliness, pricing and overall experience. In order to qualify, new- and used-car dealers must have had at least 25 new reviews written on DealerRater.com during 2015 and averaged a minimum of a four out of five-star rating. Winners selected to receive the distinction scored the highest within their brand categories nationwide for U.S. and Canada.
This comes with news that we’ve also won Dealerrater’s Consumer Satisfaction Award, which is given to the top 10 percent of car dealers based on the PowerScore.
We would like to thank you all for submitting your reviews because without you, our amazing customers, we could never have won this. We are pleased to continue serving you all the best way we can and look forward to a positive review-filled year.
Lexus surprised all of the viewers at the Detroit Auto Show this week by unveiling something unexpected. A unique and interesting new addition to the Lexus Fleet, the LC500 is an aggressively stylish and boldly designed sports car. And it will be under $100,000.
Set for a 2017 launch date, we sincerely look forward to getting these into our dealership. I look forward to test driving the first one that comes on the lot. Extensively.
We’d like to extend a huge thank-you to everyone who donated to the Mayor’s Feed the Hungry Food Drive. Overall 45 tons of food was collected and 2,350 turkeys were given away and all the food has been distributed to the food pantries. From our family to yours, we’d like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving this Thursday.

Starting November 9, Wilde Lexus of Sarasota will be accepting food for the Mayor’s Feed the Hungry Food Drive. You can bring any of your non-perishable food (canned food, ramen noodles, rice, etc.) to our dealership to drop off and even stay around to look at our awesome new 2016 inventory. At this time of the year, its important to be thankful for what we have and to be giving to those who have less.
