Toyota RAV4 Intelligent Light Control

After Toyota conquered the use of radar and camera information to provide advanced technological safety factors in their Cruise Control system and to detect pedestrian traffic, they moved into the dark of night to create another technological miracle. Observing the factors of oncoming traffic headlights and outgoing tail lights, the engineers devised a way to increase visibility at night.

Stay Safe by Learning How to Avoid Hydroplaning

Hydroplaning is one of the most common causes of auto accidents on wet roads. When your tires suddenly start gliding on water instead of gripping the road, you’ll instantly lose all ability to brake, steer or otherwise control your vehicle. Luckily, preventing hydroplaning is simple if you drive smartly.

Excessive speed and wet roads are a bad combination, which means you’ll want to reduce your speed during heavy rains or whenever the road is too wet. Accelerating too quickly can also cause you to hydroplane, which is why you should avoid trying to pass and keep your cruise…

How Tire Rotation Prevents Blowouts

One way that you can avoid a tire blowout is by making sure to rotate them at regular intervals. Ideally, tires will be rotated each time you go in for an oil change or inspection. By keeping up a regular tire rotation schedule, they will wear in a more uniform manner.

When tires do not wear in an even manner, they may be prone to bulges or bubbles forming on the tread. This makes it harder for the tire to make proper contact with the road, which may result in less heat being transported away from it.

Why You Should Consider Winter Tires

Winter is near and the increasing snowfall and freezing temperatures will affect your vehicle’s handling on the road. 

 

Anyone who lives in New England, where the weather is dominated by ice and snow for months out of the year, should consider winter tires, or more commonly called snow tires. In addition, anyone who drives a 2-wheel or rear-wheel drive vehicle is more susceptible to slipping due to the unbalanced power of the tires. 4-wheel drive vehicles perform better than 2-wheel drive, but it is recommended that both types of vehicles use a set of winter tires.

by Nai Nan Ko Jr., General Manager of Wellesley Toyota

As a professional of the automotive industry, I’ve witnessed too often the trepidation from the word “lease.” No matter whether he is a new customer or an old friend, eyes widen, shoulders rise, and hands are drawn: “No, I don’t want to lease a new car because I want to own my new car” is often the immediate reaction I hear.

The immediate reaction is understandable. Yes, when you lease a vehicle, you do not own the vehicle. To best understand a lease, think of it as a…
