The Scion FR-S Available At Yuba City Toyota

Yuba City Toyota is proud to debut  the latest addition to the Scion lineup that is making waves here in California. The 2013 Scion FR-S enjoyed an enthusiastic launch among a crowd of many.

Toyota is known for the Lexus, Toyota and Scion brands, with the latter appealing strongly to the youth market. Scion is known for stylish vehicles that are extremely popular young car buyers. And this is especially true in California, where car shoppers are taking notice of all that Scion has to offer, from an attractive lineup to numerous Scion accessories. Individuality is seemingly the end goal for these youth looking to stand apart from the crowd — and Scion has the right vehicle, allowing them to do just that.

While it is certainly a standout, the FR-S is a slight departure from the Scion lineup. The new Scion FR-S is a sports car in every sense. With a design that encapsulates the truly great features of a sports car, the FR-S is a looker sporting a slightly higher price tag — yet one that is surprisingly affordable after just one glimpse. Before the launch, Yuba City Toyota sales professionals learned that the FR-S stands for front engine rear-wheel drive. All in attendance agreed that the new Scion FR-S looks ready to jump off the starting line at the blink of an eye, and understood that the new Scion sports car is here.

Salesforce.com and Toyota team up to create “Toyota Friend”

“Toyota Friend” will be a private social network between the customer, Toyota, and their vehicle. They can even choose to expand their network to their friends and family on Twitter and Facebook. The service will be available at first for the electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids of 2012. The platform will be Salesforce.com’s Salesforce Chatter, which is already used by businesses. It will give special maintenance tips, as well as “tweet”-like alerts to your mobile device including tablet PCs and smart phones, to let you know when the battery is low on your 2012 Prius.

Salesforce.com’s CEO Marc Benioff stated, “Toyota and salesforce.com share a vision to take the auto industry into the future. Social and mobile technologies will transform the car ownership experience, and we are excited to be Toyota’s partner in this transformation.”

Revolutionary vehicles demand revolutionary forms of communication, and that is what “Toyota Friend” will do. “Toyota Friend” will begin in Japan, and then move on to America. Visit www.toyota.com for more details.

Car Types Explained

When buying a car, sometimes buying the right make and model can be confusing. Do you want a sedan, or compact vehicle, or even an SUV? What is the purpose for each type of vehicle, and why do I want it? Different types of vehicles can have different purposes, such as terrain or how a person drives. Knowing the kind of car you want and need can significantly narrow the search options when finding your next vehicle.

Sedans, minivans and trucks are some of the more common vehicles that people may buy for general use. Sedans range from medium-sized, large, and luxury. People with families tend to buy these vehicles, because of the cargo space and interior space it gives, but watch out for poor fuel economy and it may be difficult to park the large sedans. Minivans can generally drive as well as cars, and they offer tons of space for more people than a sedan, and can still offer cargo space, especially if seats can be removed or lowered. They can even have decent fuel economy. If you need to haul bulky items, a truck may be for you. Newer models have more seating and door configurations, but they tend to not drive so well as cars, and have poor fuel economy.

Sport-utility vehicles (SUVs), coupes and convertibles are another set of choices that might perk your interest. SUVs can traverse most terrain, and offer large space for both people and luggage. Fuel economy is often poor, and they can be costly to maintain. Convertibles are two-door passenger vehicles with usually a fold-down fabric top, or even a hard top sometimes. They have little to no luggage space, but they have the sporty look that many desire and have good resale value. Coupes are two-door, and sportier-looking than their sedan counterpart. They tend to have a low roofline and large doors. People enjoy coupes because of their superior driving performance.

It all depends on what you desire from your car to decide on the type of car that you want. Do you want value, low maintenance cost, city driving or off roading? Write your pros and cons for each type, and you will have a better idea of what you want your vehicle to provide.

Trouble Under the Hood:Car Noises Translated

 

Your car talks in different ways. Different sounds mean different things may be wrong with your vehicle. Knowing these sounds helps your mechanic to know what to look for. The only sound you need to hear is the engine! Ask your mechanic what different auto noises mean, but here is a quick list.

A squealing sound may indicate something wrong with the tires, or the breaking mechanism.

A rattling sound could indicate loose nuts or bolts, so bring your car in to a mechanic as soon as you hear it!

A popping sound is also very serious, as it could indicate a leaking valve, or wire problems.

Knowing your vehicle and what to hear for is very important. Research what your car should and shouldn’t sound like, for proper maintenance of your vehicle, and your safety!

At the Yuba City Toyota Service Department, you’ll find a state of the art facility that is fully equipped to handle all phases of maintenance & repair. Our Factory trained technicians have the tools and the experience to maintain, diagnose & repair your Toyota the right way, the first time! To make an appointment, please call us at (800)917-8695.

Our Gold Sox Follow Up !!!!!

The fans were very excited to receive 1,000 Max Stassi bobbleheads(sponsored by Yuba City Scion) that were given away in a short period of time.  Additionally, Scion brought up a bunch of Scion free items such as CD’s, bags, backpacks, lighted necklaces, t-shirts, and hats that were given away too. We parked a Scion XB in center field on the warning track throughout the entire game.  Although a few balls were hit out there, none came in contact with the Scion. 🙂

There was a little more than 1700 fans that got to see a very exciting game that ended with a win for the Gold Sox in the bottom of the 9th inning on a Grand Slam  5-2 !!!!

The best way to clean your bar b que

The sun is out, the days are longer and when you go in the back yard you can’t help but smell what the neighbors are up to. We wanted to take a moment to give you a few tips for cleaning up the Bar B Que from last years grilling season.

  1. Decide, did she see her last season. Was the fun in the sun from last year, her swan song. They don’t last forever.
  2. Take out the grill and scrape it. When your done, Scrape it for another 10 minutes. This is an important step. There are a few ways you can go from here to get it clean, but getting the chunks of the beer can chicken off are your first step.
  3. Spray it with a hose. Don’t be shy, wet that puppy down. If you have a nozzle handy, do some pressure washing.
  4. This is where a lot of people use a cooking spray or one of the grill cleaners. Were not saying no, were just saying that it’s a grill and not a surgery table.
  5. Replace it into the bar b que, close the lid and put it on full. This will get rid of anything that might be left on the grill that you don’t need.  This should sit about 15 minutes or so. The idea is to get any ruminants from your neighbors shrimp kabob off your grill.

After that it’s easy. Make your favorite dish, enjoy the summer and remember that grilling is not a license for uncontrolled burning, you still need a permit for that.

The Toyota Prius

We are happy to have our first blog be on one of our finest automobiles. More than just a super gas saving hybrid, it is a good looking car. Gone forever are the days of box like, under powered hard to fit hybrids, this car looks great and has the power to back it up.  The Prius has become an industry standard for the hybrid. It’s looks, price and great reputation for reliability have out it on the top of many top review list.

The recall was indeed a hard hit to Toyota and the faith that man Americans had put in the company. Toyota is more motivated than ever to build that trust back. After a good long look at itself and what happened it has emerged a better company. We hope that you will stop in and let us know what you think.
