Our Automark department sells only the best quality pre-owned vehicles. Each vehicle comes with an Automark Certificate as proof that it has been thoroughly checked over and is backed by Toyota’s standard of quality.

Our workshop is state of the art with only the best equipment being used. Our technicians are continuously trained by Toyota to ensure that their knowledge is current and of the best standard. We are currently one of the very few Toyota dealerships that have the Express Service functionality allowing your vehicle to be serviced and washed in 60/90min depending on your service interval. Express Service is an appointment based system meaning you can service anytime throughout the day at an appointed time most convenient to you.

Our parts sales executives are very knowledgeable in their area of expertise offering sound trust worthy advice when needed. We stock a wide range of parts for each model of vehicle but should we not have the part you need in stock we will order for you.

SMG History

In 1910 Sean McCarthy’s grandfather Justin McCarthy joined Rodway as an accounting clerk. In his quest for success, Justin worked his way up to becoming the General Manager and went on to list McCarthy Rodway on the London Stock Exchange in 1936.

In the early 60’s Justin McCarthy was succeeded by his son Brian McCarthy, Sean McCarthy’s father. His tenure saw enormous growth in the motor industry with the McCarthy name becoming the most trusted name in South African motoring and the biggest motor retailer in the Southern Hemisphere

In 2003 Sean McCarthy broke away from McCarthy Retail Limited with the intent to create his own dealership group and so the SMG story began.
