Toyota Introduces Online Express Purchase

Fans of Scion’s Pure Process Plus rejoice! Toyota is introducing a new, online purchase program called Express Purchase.

Once customers settle on a car, they can get their trade-in offer online, allowing them to save time when they eventually do go to the dealership.


Not only that, but Express Purchase allows users to apply for financing online, helping them to get the best rate and lock it in before they…

Life Saving Zeros

Every few years, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) releases statistics for how many collision-related deaths there are in each vehicle model. The most recent statistics for crash-related deaths are for the period between 2009-2012, where the worst-performing car was the Kia Rio at 149 deaths per million vehicles registered. The average was 28 deaths per million vehicles. So what about the Highlander Hybrid and Sequoia? 0.


Over three years, not a single person died in a collision in one of the two large Toyota SUVs. Only seven other vehicles can claim this honor, including one Lexus. That means…

The Million Mile Tundra

Matt Farah, an automotive journalist made famous through his podcast, “The Smoking Tire,” famously purchased a Lexus LS400 with over 900,000 miles, determined to take it to one million miles. But Victor Sheppard of Louisiana beat him there.


As the sole owner of the 2007 Tundra, he put an average of around 120,000 miles per year, driving from his home to states as far away as North Dakota as part of his job. Part of his long-term success stems from his commitment to routine maintenance, servicing the car a whopping 117 times at his local dealership, Greg LeBlanc…

Toyota C-HR

Toyota has unveiled a new compact SUV dubbed the C-HR. Originally revealed at the LA Auto Show last fall as a Scion, Toyota’s decision to discontinue the Scion brand has led to the C-HR being rebranded a Toyota.

The new SUV will be similar in size to offerings like the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-2, slotting below the RAV-4. The C-HR takes Toyota styling into a newer, bolder direction with an aggressive fascia and sharp sheetmetal. The C-HR will be the second vehicle (after the Prius) to ride on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) that will allow for…

2016 Prius Cheaper to Fuel Than Tesla

One of the biggest reasons to invest in an electric car is the monumental fuel savings they offer. Buy a Tesla and your spending on transportation drops to near $0. Or so we thought.


Toyota, however, is proving that there is still a financial case for hybrid cars. According to Tesla’s own calculations, a Model S will require 33.0kWh of electricity to travel 100 miles. At $0.13/kWh (the true average for the Cleveland area is more like $0.138, but Tesla only allows two decimals), that means it costs $4.29 to go 100 miles in…

How Motorcars = More

Are You Interested in a Maintenance Class?

One of the things that we've learned from our New Owner Clinics is that you have a genuine interest in and a lot of questions about your vehicles and how best to take care of them. While we're able to touch on a lot of subjects during these events, I can't help but think that spending more time on the subjects that matter to you - maybe even a hands-on class where you can learn how to change a tire, check your oil and fluids, and a few other simple, routine tasks - could answer your questions and help…

by Mack Hogan

Your car tells you when you need oil. Your manual tells you when you need service. Your dash shows you when you need air in your tires.
