CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team Teaches About Vehicle Recalls

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 18th, 2017 at 4:03 PM

Our experienced CardinaleWay Toyota Service Team, members of our Toyota Tahoe dealership, understands the importance of vehicle recalls. Our Toyota brand is diligent when it comes to quality and safety. A recall is made when Toyota determines that there may be a safety or quality-related defect in one of its models. This determination is made after comprehensive testing. If you own a brand other than Toyota, you should be aware when your vehicle manufacturer issues a recall. For some recalls, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration issues the recall. This type of recalls are typically safety-related defects or the vehicle is in violation with a federal safety standard.  Your vehicle’s manufacturer will alert you about the recall and identify steps to take.

 –

Expect A Notification Or Look Online

Vehicle manufacturers are required to notify its customers about recalls. If you purchased a used vehicle, or have changed addresses, your vehicle manufacturer may not have you in their notification records. It’s good practice to look online for recalls at the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration’s website.  Whether you receive a notification, or find the recall online, your vehicle’s manufacturer will repair your vehicle at no cost to you.

 –

Understanding The Recall

The recall notification will have several details in it.  The defect will be described along with potential warning signs. Please note that the risks of the defect will be clearly stated. This is extremely important as it will help you determine if the defect will cause a significant safety issue. Also in the notification will be the repair plan and steps to take. You should contact your local vehicle dealership to set up a repair appointment.

Toyota And Mazda Join Up For Future Growth

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 4th, 2017 at 3:58 PM

Our CardinaleWay Toyota Team was excited to hear the recent announcement about Toyota and Mazda. After two years of productive dialogue, these two vehicle manufacturers have signed an agreement for a business and capital alliance in hopes of strengthening their partnership.

 –

Innovating Together In Future Vehicle Technology

Toyota and Mazda will join up for a new manufacturing plant in America. Location and more details are yet to be determined.  The plant will be equally funded by both companies.  They estimate that this state-of-the-art plant would be able to produce around 300,000 vehicles. Their 1.6-billion-dollar investment may create approximately 4,000 new jobs. As of now, Toyota plans to produce its Corolla at the new plant while Mazda plans for crossover models. All models are intended for the vehicle market in North America. Toyota had originally planned to produce the Corolla at its new plant in Mexico. The Toyota Tacoma will now be the production model of that Mexico plant.

Both companies also agreed to jointly develop electric vehicle technologies and connected-car technology. Safety will be a focus as well. Toyota and Mazda will work together on more advanced technology for vehicle safety systems.

 –

Competitiveness Melds Into Collaboration

Toyota and Mazda have worked with each other on other vehicle projects in the past. Because of both companies’ passion for vehicles, they feel working together will accelerate vehicle advances in the industry. All vehicle manufacturers face tougher safety and environmental regulations, so leaders of Toyota and Mazda agree that together, they can meet these challenges with the best innovation possible.

CardinaleWay Toyota Congratulates Toyota And Mazda

We know firsthand that collaboration is the way to go for best thinking and leadership. Our CardinaleWay Toyota Team has worked that way for over 20 years in the South Lake Tahoe area.

Road Tripping With Older Travelers

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 17th, 2017 at 6:11 PM

If you are planning a road trip with elderly relatives or friends, our CardinaleWay Toyota Team has some great pointers to make your trip safe and more enjoyable. The premiere dealership for Toyota northern California, CardinaleWay Toyota recommends the following.

Is Your Passenger Well Enough For Travel?
One of the most important things to do before you plan anything else is to confer with your elderly passenger’s doctor. Talk with the doctor about the trip and ask if your passenger is well enough to travel. Find out if there are any limitations or special preparations you need to make.

Discuss The Trip And Points Of Interest
Involve your elderly passenger in some of the planning, especially about places of interest they’d like to see. It will help pique their interest in the trip. It will also help you plan the trip including special stops along the way.

Plan Your Route Carefully
As you plan your trip, research hospitals and care clinics that are easily reachable from your route. In case of an emergency, you’ll have the confidence that help is available nearby. Most vehicle navigation systems can direct you to these care clinics also. The Entune™ Navigation systems on our new Toyotas can be very helpful to you on the road.

How To Pack For The Trip
Bring all necessary travel documents such as passports and identification. Also organize medical information such as medications, allergies and medical histories. This will be very helpful should you need to visit a hospital or clinic along the way. You’ll want to bring along all medical insurance cards and prescriptions or other medical orders too.  Bring some healthy snacks and stay hydrated on the trip.

CardinaleWay Toyota Wishes You A Safe Journey
As your Toyota Tahoe dealership for over 20 years, we have heard about many great trips from our customers. Traveling with elderly passengers may present some challenges, however, with good planning, you should have a successful venture. Our CardinaleWay Toyota Team recommends that you have your vehicle checked out before you travel. Our expert Service Team will make sure your vehicle is road worthy. Call us or make an appointment online at our website: www.cardinalewaytoyota.com.  We hope you will stop in soon and tell us about your road trip adventures.
