Toyota’s Generous Grant Expands Education Opportunities

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 at 8:25 PM

California State University will be the benefactor of very generous grant from the Toyota USA Foundation. The Dominguez Hills campus will be the site of the new Toyota Center for Innovation in STEM Education. STEM is the term used for science, technology, engineering and mathematics studies. Groundbreaking for the Center is planned for fall of this year.

 

#Toyota recently increased its original $4 million commitment by $750,000. The total commitment will fund the Innovation Center and create technology-equipped mobile trailers. Laser cutters, 3D printers and prototyping components will be some of the technology included in these trailers. Toyota is also donating four Toyota Tundra trucks to tow the trailers to schools in the South Bay and Greater Los Angeles area. This brings learning to students, teachers and the communities, expanding the educational reach.

 

A Space For All To Learn And Create

The new center on campus is designed with over 87,000 square feet of science and innovation lab space. It will welcome students from kindergarten through college. Instructors will be able to demonstrate and teach concepts. Groups will have the space to create together in the fabrication lab. Also included in the design are SMART classrooms, which are technology-ready and offer drawing board and sharing features.

 

Workforce Readiness Is Key For The Future

The educational focus on STEM by Toyota and the University is driven by the future need for skilled employees in STEM-related jobs. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there could be over 1.4 million STEM-related jobs openings by 2018. The California Teachers Association also estimates that the state’s demand for new math and science teachers will steadily increase and it could face a teacher shortage in these academic areas.

 

CardinaleWay Toyota Applauds The Commitment

Our CardinaleWay Toyota family understands the importance of STEM education. We congratulate Toyota and California State University for partnering on such an important investment in the future. We’re excited that the Toyota Tundra will begin traveling with the technology-equipped trailers in the next few months. If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, our friendly Sales Team at our South Lake Tahoe dealership would be happy to show you all of the great Toyota models and offer a test drive. You can see our current inventory at our website: www.cardinalewaytoyota.com. We have a great selection of used Tahoe vehicles as well. Stop in today – you’ll be glad you did.

Toyota And Burton Snowboards Join Up For A Marketing Deal

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, March 16th, 2017 at 7:28 PM

Toyota and Burton Snowboards announced a newly-formed partnership last month. This partnership will result in co-marketing efforts in digital, social, retail and event management.

 

The Strength Of Two Great Brands Together

The creation of this multi-year strategic partnership leverages the brand strength and recognition of the Toyota and Burton names. This partnership recently premiered at the Burton U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships in Vail, Colorado. The deal also names Toyota as the official automotive company of Burton Snowboards.

 

Toyota Brings Fun To The U.S Open Snowboarding Championships

Toyota provided many interactive activities at the Championship events. Immersive interactive fan experiences included athlete “meet and greets,” special gifts for Toyota owners and a custom chain-stitched neck gator. Toyota also provided free shuttle service at the Vail event.

 

Chloe Kim Sponsored By The Two Companies

2016 Burton U.S. Open Halfpipe Champion and three-time X-Games Gold Medalist Chloe Kim is currently sponsored by Toyota and Burton. This sponsorship is just one example of how Toyota is building up their support for winter sports.

 

We Applaud Two Great Brands With A Solid History

Toyota and Burton have readily recognizable brands in their respective industries. Great quality and great customer service are the foundations of both companies. At CardinaleWay Toyota, we’re proud to be the premiere Toyota dealer in Nevada and California. Like these two great brands, we pride ourselves on the experience we provide every customer.

Our CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team Explains Why Regular Vehicle Maintenance Is Important

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, March 15th, 2017 at 7:26 PM

When you purchased your vehicle, you made a significant investment for reliable transportation. Each new vehicle comes with a recommended maintenance schedule from its manufacturer. Even if your vehicle is out of warranty, it still requires regular maintenance to run safely and efficiently.

 

What Is A Vehicle Maintenance Schedule?

Along with the design of every vehicle, the manufacturer carefully plans for the vehicle’s longevity. A vehicle maintenance schedule is a plan detailed with mileage and timing milestones at which certain maintenance service should be done. This type of service is not only preventative for potential issues, it is necessary for your vehicle to run at its peak performance.

 

Typically, a vehicle maintenance schedule runs at a 3,000 or 5,000 miles interval. In some cases, 3 or 6-month milestones are used to schedule required maintenance. Always follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. If you are unsure about the recommended schedule for your vehicle, our skilled CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team will be happy to assist you.

 

Types Of Service Included In Regular Scheduled Maintenance

Generally, the following services are recommended at regular intervals for vehicles:

  • Engine oil change and lubrication
  • Battery check
  • Brake inspection
  • Filters replaced
  • Tire rotation
  • Wheel Alignment
  • Radiator flush/fluid check
  • Transmission fluid check
  • Engine Tune-up

 

Each vehicle’s manufacturer creates their own plan for scheduled maintenance. So, mileage and timing milestones may vary across manufacturers.  However, depending on your driving conditions, off-road, stop and go, towing, etc., some scheduled maintenance may need to be done sooner than scheduled.

 

Our Service Team Will Treat You And Your Vehicle With Great Customer Service

In addition to their automotive skills, our knowledgeable and friendly Service Team will provide a great experience from the moment you contact our Tahoe dealership. We pride ourselves on offering great customer experiences. Our Service Team will inspect your vehicle and recommend scheduled maintenance as well as anything else your vehicle needs to operate safely. Taking care of regular maintenance doesn’t guarantee your vehicle will never have a problem. However, it goes a long way to manage small issues before they become large ones which can be costlier to you.

Whether you own a new Toyota or any Tahoe used car, stop by or call us today. Or, visit our website and conveniently schedule an appointment – www.cardinalewaytoyota.com. You will be glad you did!

Toyota And Shell Partnership Will Create More Hydrogen Stations In California

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, March 9th, 2017 at 10:33 PM

A new partnership between Toyota and Royal Dutch Shell Plc will yield seven more hydrogen vehicle fueling stations in California. The partnership plays a major role in the goal established by the California Energy Commission to have 100 hydrogen stations by 2024.

 

Investment And Diversity Of Future Energy Needs Pave The Way

Both Toyota and Shell have a future vision for hydrogen-powered vehicles. Toyota’s aspirational goal to transition all its vehicles to hydrogen power by 2050 has its research and development teams focused and working rapidly. Today, hydrogen refueling is an issue because of the absence of enough fueling stations in the state. There are 25 hydrogen refueling stations in California.

Shell has been working toward a strategy to depart from oil as its sole energy source and move to hydrogen. Globally, Shell operates six hydrogen stations. There are two in the Los Angeles area, four in Germany, and, its latest station, in London. The company knows the demand for hydrogen power is increasing and it wants to be an energy leader in it.

The California Energy Commission is considering $16.4 million in grants toward building the hydrogen stations. Shell and Toyota are considering an $11.4 million investment.

 

California Is The Best Place For the Toyota/Shell Partnership

Because California has some of the toughest rules for clean-air in the United States, Toyota and Shell are in prime space to test vehicles and provide the energy stations. California also has many mandates for zero-emission vehicles.

As the world continues to move away from fossil fuels, Toyota has been working hard toward alternative energy solutions for over 20 years. The plan is to be ready when the demand is in full gear.

 

Though A Long Road Ahead, CardinaleWay Toyota Shares The Vision

Our CardinaleWay Toyota family is excited about the future possibilities for vehicle power. Toyota has a lot of work ahead, however they are committed to continuous improvement of Toyota hybrid vehicles and the development of #hydrogen-powered vehicles. As your premiere Toyota dealer in Nevada and California, we invite you to stop in to see the latest in energy-saving Toyota models. Our Sales Team will explain the many great features of all our vehicles. You may be surprised to learn about the technology advances that make Toyota vehicles fuel-efficient and fun to drive. Stop in today at our South Lake Tahoe dealership. Our friendly, no-pressure Sales Team will welcome you and make your vehicle shopping experience a great one!

Our CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team Says “‘Tis The Season For Potholes”

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 at 10:31 PM

Hitting an unexpected pothole on your drive probably causes you to wince, then worry if your vehicle sustained any damage. With the recent heavy rains and fluctuating temperatures, potholes are a fact of life we’ve all come to expect, but always detest. Our CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team has some great information for you about this pesky road problem.

 

Potholes 101

Potholes may be usually associated with winter or spring weather, however they can form in the summer months too. In winter weather, the intermittent freezing then thawing water in pavement cracks causes the pavement to expand. The frozen water creates a frost heave, raising the pavement a bit. During melting, the raised pavement can cave in when vehicles roll over it, creating a pothole.

The summer heat dries the pavement. Rain filling pavement cracks continues to seep into the ground and softens it. The continuing heat dries the pavement over the softened ground and the weight of passing vehicles can form a pothole.

 

You’ve Hit A Pothole – Now What?

It was a large jolt. You’re hoping for the best. Our CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team highly recommends that you bring your vehicle in for an inspection. The damage may not be obvious immediately, however more serious issues can build over time.

The potential issues of hitting a #pothole include tire damage or a puncture, wheel rim damage, suspension damage and exhaust system or engine damage. It can also affect your steering system.

There may be some immediate signs of damage, as well. The sidewall of your vehicle’s tire may bulge. Fluid leaks can be caused if a line is punctured. Damage to your exhaust system can be a safety hazard to you and your passengers. These types of damage need immediate attention and our CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team is ready to help you.

 

The Best Pothole Remedy Is Prevention

We realize that avoiding a pothole is not always possible. Our CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team recommends the following:

  • Keep your tires inflated to the manufacturer’s guidelines
  • While driving, increase the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. This gives you a better chance to see potholes and avoid them
  • If road visibility is compromised due to snow, rain, fog or darkness, reduce your speed.

If you’ve recently hit a pothole, or several, schedule an appointment with our expert and knowledgeable Service Team. They will recommend the best service for your vehicle to keep you and your passengers safe and your vehicle running at its best among Tahoe cars. You can conveniently schedule an appointment online at our website: www.cardinalewaytoyota.com. Or give us a call at our South Lake Tahoe dealership. We look forward to providing friendly and efficient service!
