Brownsville Toyota Donates Modern Engine to Local College

BROWNSVILLE, Texas Brownsville Toyota donated a 2013 four-cylinder BMW X3 engine to Texas Southmost College to augment the hands-on education of its auto technology program.

Ricardo Garcia, parts-and-service director for the dealership, toured the college about five months ago and saw a need for new equipment and training tools.

Garcia likes that the engine has a direct-injection fuel system, a feature that is more common in current vehicles.

"They have some stuff that looks like it is from the 1960s," Garcia told Edmunds.

Brownsville Toyota also gave the OK to let future students job shadow the service team to see what it?s like to work in the dealership.

Garcia hopes they may want to join its workforce in the future because of the exposure.

"The college is five to 10 minutes away and we knew we had to help our community," he said. ?We could make a difference and we're going to look for more opportunities to do that.?

Edmunds says: A dealership does its part to rev up education, something that will benefit future customers.
