Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition – Texas Branded Brawn

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017 at 6:55 PM

Our CardinaleWay Toyota Sales Team says, if you are thinking about a Toyota Tundra truck, consider the 1794 Edition. This specially branded Tundra delivers the power and strength you need in a pickup with style and comfort. As your Toyota Tahoe dealership, we know the quality and dependability of this great vehicle.

The History Behind 1794

Toyota’s Tundra manufacturing plant is located just south of San Antonio, Texas. It sits on a property which was once the oldest working ranch in Texas, the JLC Ranch. This ranch was founded in 1794. A colonist from the Canary Islands used a grant he received to get the property. Over the years, the property was passed down through family members. In 2003, Toyota purchased the property. To honor the heritage of the land, they created the 1794 edition in 2014.

Features Of The 1794 Edition

The #Tundra 1794 Edition has four trim levels. These levels have the CrewMax body style, the largest of all the Tundra body styles.  The 5.7-liter V8 engine is available in a 4×2 or 4×4 version. You also have a choice between regular fuel and flex fuel options.

You’ll know this Tundra is special when you sit in the Western-themed interior. With perforated brown premium leather-trimmed seating and wood-style trim, you’ll feel the heart of the JLC Ranch immediately. The chrome grille and gunmetal gray lower front bumper has chrome endcaps. Available are 20-inch chrome-clad alloy wheels.

If You Hear These Noises, Bring Your Vehicle To CardinaleWay Toyota For Service

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, June 13th, 2017 at 5:59 PM

You are probably familiar with that clanging sound of a coin in your clothes dryer. However, that’s not a sound you want to hear from your vehicle on the road. Our factory-trained Service Technicians at our Tahoe dealership are happy to share information about warning symptoms you can hear and what to do about them.

You May Not See The Problem, But You Can Hear It

Not all vehicle issues can be seen. Take the time to listen to your vehicle. Here are a few symptoms to be aware of:

 

  • When you brake, you hear a squeal: it may be time to replace the brake pads or brake shoes. If you hear grinding, it’s more serious. Visit us for brake service because the pads may be completely worn. If that’s the case, metal is grinding on metal. This will greatly affect your braking power which is hazardous.

 

  • You hear banging or tapping from under the hood: this sound indicates a potential valve or piston issue. This is a critical engine problem. Our Service Technicians will diagnose the problem and talk with you about necessary service.

 

  • In a corner turn, you hear clicking: with front-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles, the constant velocity joint on the front axle may need to be replaced.

 

  • Starting your vehicle or accelerating produces a squealing sound: a loose or wearing belt for the power steering, air conditioner or alternator may be the cause.

 

  • And, if you’re hearing that coin in the clothes dryer sound, it may be a loose lug nut inside the hub cap, if your vehicle has one. It’s another issue that needs immediate attention because the vehicle’s wheel may not be properly fastened.

 

These are just a few of the sounds to warn you of issues with your vehicle.

If You Hear Something, Our Service Technicians Will Diagnose It

Your vehicle has indicator lights and warning systems for many of its components. However, some issues may not be covered in these systems. Use your sense of hearing to stop trouble before it starts, or progresses. Bring your vehicle to our highly-skilled and trusted #CardinaleWayToyota Service Team at our Toyota Tahoe dealership. Tell them what you are hearing and they will inspect your vehicle to diagnose the problem. Our Service Technicians are among the best around. Look for service discount specials at our website: www.cardinalewaytoyota.com. You can conveniently schedule an appointment with our Service Department from the website.
