Rick Case Honda has reached an unprecedented milestone.

The dealership in Davie, Fla., was presented with the Honda President’s Elite Award for the 16th consecutive year, the most ever for a volume Honda dealer.

The award is based on the overall dealership performance, including volume, operational excellence, customer satisfaction and facility. President’s Award status is awarded to about 15% of Honda dealerships annually.

“These accolades are a testament to the commitment and dedication of our 400 associates, and I am so proud of all that they have accomplished as a great team,” Rick Case Automotive Group president and CEO Rita Case said in a news release. “I appreciate our loyal customers, and we look forward to earning this recognition next year.”

The dealership was recognized as the most awarded volume Honda dealer in American Honda history and the largest U.S. volume dealer in 2024 at a celebration led by Rita Case.

The attendees, which included 400 associates and 12 America Honda Motor Company executives from across the nation, were welcomed by the Cypress Bay High School marching band and dance team.

Case’s family has a long association with Honda. Her father was the first Honda dealer in the U.S. and her late husband Rick was the world’s largest Honda motorcycle dealer in the 1970s.

“I think I can safely say that the Rick Case Automotive Group has sold more Honda products than anyone in America,” Rita Case said.

Naderi acquires California Toyota store

Kevin Naderi has acquired Gosch Toyota in Hemet, Calif., from Gosch Auto Group, according to Kerrigan Advisors, which represented the seller in the transaction.

The dealership is located in the Hemet Auto Mall, an area developed in part by Jack Gosch, who founded Gosch Auto Group in 1964. The family-owned business continues to operate dealerships in Hemet and Temecula.

“In 1972, following the success we saw with our Ford dealership, we added Gosch Toyota to our group, and over the years we’ve created a long and successful relationship with Toyota,” said Marc Gosch, co-owner and Jack’s son, in a release. “While it is difficult to part with a dealership that has been a part of our family for decades, we are pleased to continue serving the Hemet community with our Ford, Chevrolet and Hyundai brands.”
