Marwa Elsayed of Tom’s River says, “Easiest $5000 Ever!”

When Gateway Toyota General Manager Rick Cardwell made the phone call to Marwa Elsayed of Tom’s River, NJ to tell her she was the first winner of the dealership’s $5000 Test Drive, they were both excited. Cardwell said, “This is absolutely huge for our dealership, and the thrill of telling one of our customers they have won $5000 just for taking a test drive, unbelievable!” And for the winner, Elsayed explained, “At first I didn’t believe Mr. Cardwell, then I started laughing and everyone in the room was jumping up and down!” Cardwell commented when told of Elsayed’s reaction, “I think $5000 will make anyone pretty happy!” Elsayed answered, “It was the easiest most unexpected $5000 I’ve ever made.”

Gateway Toyota launched an advertising program in March promoting the dealership as ‘the Home of the $5000 Test Drive’ and Cardwell said there are no catches whatsoever. “The contest is just what it is – test drive any new Toyota or used vehicle and your name is entered into that month’s contest,” Cardwell explained. When asked if he was surprised with the first month’s response, Cardwell smiled and said, “People absolutely took us up on the offer, but the amazing part is many of our test drivers were just as excited with the vehicle they were test-driving as winning the money.” For all the rules Cardwell invited people to log on Gateway Toyota and click the $5000 Test Drive button on their home page.

Gateway Toyota recently moved into their brand new showroom, and with over a huge selection of Toyotas, Certified Toyotas and used vehicles has become a destination point for area shoppers in the Tri-State area. $5000 Test Drive winner Elsayed test drove a 2014 Toyota Sienna, but Cardwell made it clear, “There is no obligation to purchase, just test drive any vehicle and you could win!” And just like Marwa Elsayed, it will most likely be the easiest $5000 you ever earned.
