The team at Manheim Southern California has reason to celebrate: Subaru of America recently named the location as its 2016 Auction of the Year. The award, which was presented to the Manheim Southern California leadership on February 16, honors one auction each year for sales effectiveness and service quality. 


Subaru evaluates auctions by tracking and measuring three key components, which include: total sale percentage, retention to goal price and the number of unique buyers.


“A numerical score is calculated at the conclusion of every sale at every location on a monthly basis and the auctions are ranked monthly based on the final score,” Subaru national fleet remarketing manager John Manchin said.


Manheim Southern California is among several auctions that host combined Subaru factory sales, which features company promotional and program vehicles.


“We here at Manheim Southern California are humbled by this award, as the greatest recognition a business can receive is that which comes from a client,” said Chad Ruffin, general manager. “Every day we are focused on the mission of driving our clients’ success, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with Subaru to deliver stellar results in 2017 and beyond.”
