About Us

Lithia Motors Inc. started in 1946 in Ashland, OR as a small Chrysler store and has evolved into the 2nd largest dealership group in the nation with over 250 locations to serve our customers. Michael's Toyota was founded by Bruce Broadus of Havre, Montana in 1974. After spending 15 years with General Motors, Bruce recognized the changing industry and the potential of the import automobile. At that time, Bruce moved his family to Bellevue, Washington and open Michael's Toyota. This family owned dealership has thrived and grown over the past four decades by continually improving and confirming their commitment to thousands of loyal and satisfied customers. Today, Michael's Toyota of Bellevue is still family owned and operated. We have been an integral member of the community for over 43 years, supporting many local charities, sports leagues and youth organizations.
