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 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…

Tire Pressure Indicator

This is your tire pressure indicator. If it lights up while you are driving, pull over and safely inspect your tires.

If your tires do not appear low and you do not see any punctures, screws, or nails in any of your tires, call and make a reservation so that we can inspect your tires for leaks. (Many folks don't think to check their spare tire - it has an active sensor, too.)

The tire pressure warning indicator appears when there is a tire pressure change of 3 lbs. or more. Sometimes, a sudden temperature change of 10 degrees or…
