Toyota Streamlines Charities

Toyota built an empire on kaizen. Japanese for “continuous improvement,” this attitude towards business allowed Toyota to create the Toyota Production System. The production system, TPS for short, has cut down on production time, manufacturing costs, and quality issues. TPS is what has allowed Toyota to produce the world’s highest quality cars while maintaining competitive prices. And now it’s working to end hunger.


The Toyota Production System Support Center, which consults with companies around the world, has been successfully working with nonprofits to help bring efficiency to their causes. One shining example is The Food Bank for New…

Motorcars Partners With Uber

 


During the Republican National Convention, Motorcars kicked off an exciting new partnership with Uber. For convention week, Uber drivers received points for the amount of trips and riders they served, with the top driver receiving his/her choice of a Scion iA or Honda Fit.


Motorcars also set up an express cleaning center at Uber’s downtown operation center, providing free cleanings to drivers so they could get back out and pick up more rides. Drivers were also given coupons for service, car washes, and more.


But that isn’t where our partnership with Uber ended; it’s where it…

Who Killed the Loaner Car

Loaners used to be a staple at every garage -- even the mom & pop shop on the corner had a few cars to run around in while your car got serviced. In general, if your car needed a repair that would take a significant amount of time then you could usually get a car to use for free. Now, almost no one offers that service.


At a dealer, you’re sometimes offered a rental. At luxury brand dealers, loaners are still available.  At an independent mechanic or chain store, you’re out of luck.


First, we have to talk about the…

The Modern Tune-Up

I have bad news: your car needs a tune-up. Today. Have you ever taken it into the shop for one? Exactly. But there’s an upside! Your car gives itself a tune-up every time you drive. The idea of taking it in for a tune-up is a thing of the past.


In the old days, you would get a tune-up to adjust the carburetors, distributor, ignition points, and emissions equipment. The mechanic adjusted them so they were all perfectly set, as they would go out of “tune” over time from normal wear. But now, with ignition points, valve timing, fuel…

Toyota Unveils Self Balancing Wheelchair

Toyota has partnered with DEKA Research and Development to create a self-balancing wheelchair. DEKA, a venture of the inventor of the Segway, licensed the balancing technology of the Segway to help Toyota create a new mobility-enhancing wheelchair dubbed the iBOT.


The chair’s unique technology not only allows motion with only two wheels on the ground, but also provides the ability to climb stairs. Stairs have always been a significant hurdle for those with limited mobility, but with the iBOT owners can finally enter raised areas without the help of ramps or elevators.


Not only does the chair allow people…

Cleveland One of the Best Cities for Jobs

Bloomberg recently released their list of the top 20 cities in the U.S. for jobs. Usual suspects like Seattle and San Francisco made the cut, alongside a newcomer: Cleveland. Appearing in the 15th spot on the list, Cleveland was singled out for a low cost of living combined with good work-life balance and good salaries.


The report was based not only on open positions compared to population, but also factored in things like how salaries fare adjusted to cost of living, how happy people are with their work-life balance, and job satisfaction ratings. Much of the data was provided…

How Many Lives Have Airbags Saved?

“How about we pack a bomb into the steering wheel that explodes when the car crashes and pretty much punches the driver in the face” - The guy who invented airbags, probably.


At first, they seem counterintuitive. When has adding explosives to anything made it more safe? But when Mercedes introduced the first airbag over 30 yea rs ago, they took the industry by storm. They’ve proven to be one of the three most important milestones in vehicle safety, along with seat belts and crumple zones.


And they’re only getting more popular. Today, cars offer knee airbags, airbags built…
