Get Your Vehicle Ready for Summer Travel!

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

Getting ready for that big summer road trip? Don’t forget about your vehicle’s health. Take it into our dealership here at Salinas Toyota in Salinas, CA, for a pre-trip checkup.

Sometimes we take our vehicle for granted, and when planning a big summer trip, it is sometimes forgotten about, lost in the shuffle of all the other plans. It is important, however, to get your vehicle checked out before venturing off. Nothing will ruin a trip quicker than getting stranded on the side of the road. Take your vehicle to our dealership and let them know you are planning a trip, so they make all of the necessary checks and lessen the chances of something going wrong.

While your vehicle is getting a check-up, make sure you have other items you need as well. Such as an emergency roadside kit, cell phone and laptop chargers, spare batteries, and a cooler with drinks and snacks. Scheduling ahead will make the trip more enjoyable and stress-free.

Biggest Reasons to Get to the Car Wash This Week

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Getting down to the car wash is more than just making your car look like new again. The benefits are long-term and numerous. Consider all of these reasons to making washing the car a part of your weekly routine.

Those dirt particles that are trapped in the car are going to be working like sandpaper once combined with rain. This left unwashed could cause severe damage to the paint and expose the metal.

Trapped dirt under the car can be difficult to remove with a hose. At the car wash, the undercarriage cleaning will make short work of all those particles that are leading to rust and corrosion.

Each time you visit the car wash, the windows and mirrors will be sparkling clean and make your driving safer.

Bird droppings and dead bugs left on the surface of the paint can lead to corrosion of the protective coating.

Protect your investment by taking better care of the exterior of your vehicle. Also remember your vehicle maintenance schedule with us at Salinas Toyota in Salinas, CA, to help keep up with your investment as well.
