About Me


Cedric Jackson

Welcome to CedricTheCarGuy.com, the home of Cedric Jackson, a dedicated professional with a deep-rooted passion for the automotive industry. From humble beginnings in the Inland Empire, close to the bustling Riverside Auto Center, Cedric’s journey is one of resilience, hard work, and an unyielding commitment to excellence.


Early Life and Lessons Learned

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Cedric’s family decided to head west to Southern California. Raised near what is now Cal Baptist University, Cedric’s early life was steeped in the vibrant community between Arlington and Ramona High School. A stint as a point guard for Ramona High’s basketball team taught him the value of perseverance and teamwork, which would shape his future endeavors.


Despite facing setbacks, including being cut from the basketball team due to academic challenges, Cedric found new avenues to express his talents, notably in the performing arts. His roles in productions like “Oklahoma” and “Fiddler on the Roof” gave him a fresh perspective on community and collaboration.


The Road to Automotive Success

Cedric’s automotive career was ignited in 1998 at Riverside Chrysler Plymouth, starting as a lot porter. This opportunity was a stepping stone, laying the foundation for his future in car sales. His keen observation of a successful Nigerian salesman at Toyota of Riverside inspired him to pursue a career in car sales, leaving the banking world. At the time, Cedric worked as a Bank Teller for Bank of America, a decision that would define his professional life.


His unique approach to customer service, combined with an innate understanding of cars, quickly made him a favorite among customers. Cedric’s journey through various roles in the automotive industry, from a lot porter to an Internet Sales Manager and eventually to roles in Business Development and Management, is a testament to his adaptability, expertise, and unwavering dedication to his clients.


Philosophy and Commitment

Cedric’s philosophy is simple: go the extra mile for every customer. His journey from a hopeful youngster to a seasoned automotive professional underscores a career built on hard work, not entitlement. Cedric’s commitment to providing the best possible service is evident in his positive customer reviews and his approach to sales — knowledgeable, persistent, friendly, and professional.


Now at Toyota of Riverside, Cedric is more determined than ever to leverage his vast experience to serve his customers better. He believes in the value of a test drive and the importance of understanding customers’ needs to ensure they find the right vehicle at the right time.
