As adults, when we reflect on childhood memories, there are often a few standouts that make us long for the past. Long lost friendships, memorable milestones, and family traditions from our youth can instantly conjure up feelings of nostalgia. For one Sunshine Coast local, his favourite childhood memories involved his family’s annual Christmas vacations to visit his gran in Mackay.
However, it wasn’t just the road tunes, dad jokes and petrol station bathroom stops that made these trips so memorable - it was the pre-vacation visits to one of Ken Mills Toyota service centres that he remembers the most.
For this particular Sunshine Coast resident, the lead up to every childhood Christmas road trip began with dropping the family car off for a service. He looked forward to going to the dealership so much that it never felt like a hassle or an annoyance. Instead, it always signalled the beginning of another magical family vacation and Ken Mills Toyota soon became integrated into their family’s Christmas holiday routine.
Ken Mills Toyota - serving generations of Sunshine Coast families
With dealership locations in both Nambour and Maroochydore, Ken Mills Toyota has become a number one Toyota Service Centre Sunshine Coast residents have come to count on. As Sunshine Coast locals themselves, owners Brett and Caroline Mills have been proudly serving generations of other local families for the last two decades - either by helping them find the perfect vehicle or by servicing their existing vehicles. In fact, that little boy who set off for Mackay each Christmas has since purchased a Toyota of his own, as has his sister, and they have become the next generation of customers bringing in their cars to be serviced at Ken Mills Toyota Maroochydore. His parents are also still long-time customers of the Ken Mills Toyota service centres, and they faithfully bring their vehicle in for a service each year before heading off on their Christmas holidays.
