Help Us Put the “Toy” in the Toyota Name This Holiday Season

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, November 27th, 2017 at 8:15 PM

If you’re looking for new Toyota trucks for sale like the 2017 Toyota Tacoma, we encourage you to visit our Toyota dealership. Even if you’re not in the market for an automobile, we hope you’ll stop by our convenient location on 2nd Street in Waite Park, MN on or before December 16, 2017.

Through the middle of next month, we’re supporting Toys for Tots by collecting toys that will be handed out to children in need. We invite you to join us in sending a message of hope to needy kids by donating a toy at our Toyota dealership during our collection period. The unwrapped toy you donate must be worth at least $10. It must also be in its original packaging.

If you donate a toy that meets the requirements outlined above during our toy drive, we’ll thank you by giving you a coupon you can redeem to get $25 off your next service appointment or installed accessory. Only people who drive automobiles produced by the brand we represent are eligible to redeem our coupon. This money-saving coupon can’t be combined with any other coupons, specials, or offers.

Major Bill Hendricks of the U.S. Marine Corps started Toys for Tots in Los Angeles, CA back in 1947. During the non-profit’s initial campaign, more than 5,000 toys were collected and given out to children in need. The very first toy that was donated to Toys for Tots was a handmade doll.

Seventy years later, we’re honored to continue the charity’s tradition of collecting toys and delivering a message of hope to the next generation of Toyota drivers. Visit our Toyota dealership near St. Cloud, MN to donate a toy today and save on your next service appointment at St. Cloud Toyota tomorrow.

As if you needed another reason to visit our convenient location to see our inventory of the latest Toyota cars; now, you can feel even better when you buy or lease a Toyota vehicle because the brand we proudly represent recently signed on to be a global partner of the Special Olympics.

What’s New for the 2018 Toyota Sienna

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, November 16th, 2017 at 10:08 PM

2018 models are rolling into our lot one by one. While we don’t have it in our inventory yet, our Toyota dealers are excited about the 2018 Toyota Sienna minivan and are excited to share more details with you.

If you’re familiar with the 2017 Toyota Sienna, then you know that iteration of the popular family minivan received a new powertrain for the 2017 model year. For the 2018 model year, the Toyota Sienna underwent even more meaningful changes.

As Toyota dealers serving Sauk Rapids, MN and nearby communities, we’re extremely proud to tell you that the Toyota Safety Sense™ P suite of advanced safety and driver assist features is now standard on every 2018 Toyota Sienna model. This suite of features includes the following:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

By adding the Toyota Safety Sense™ P suite of features to every model of the 2018 Toyota Sienna, the Toyota brand established the Toyota Sienna as the only minivan in its automotive segment to have active braking on every one of its trims. In addition to its now-standard advanced safety features, the new Toyota Sienna boasts a larger, lower grille and larger fog light compartments.

The SE trim has a new acoustic windshield, which provides a quieter ride, while the Limited model has laminated glass in the front row side window. The Toyota Sienna features a 4.2-inch multi-information display as well as an optional Bird’s Eye View monitor in the Limited Premium trim. The 2018 Toyota Sienna is available in three new colors: Toasted Walnut Pearl, Alumina Jade Metallic, and Parisian Night Pearl.

How to Prevent Cosmetic Car Damage in Winter

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, November 14th, 2017 at 2:56 PM

The signs are everywhere: falling leaves, dropping temperatures, shorter days – these are all signs that winter will be on the doorstep of our Toyota dealership soon. If you haven’t done so already, we strongly encourage you to make an appointment to bring your car into our Waite Park, MN Toyota service center to have it winterized soon.

While winterizing your vehicle will go a long way towards preventing unexpected breakdowns during the winter, it won’t prevent avoidable cosmetic damage to your automobile. Luckily, there are some things you can do to guard against cosmetic damage, including:

  • Waxing Your Vehicle: Just like you put on a winter coat to protect yourself from the cold and the elements, you should put an added layer of protection on your automobile before winter arrives. Apply a coat of polymer wax to your vehicle’s painted surfaces to protect your car from road salt, sleet, dirt, snow, and ice.
  • Doing It Again: Whether you drive one of our 2016 Toyota models, a 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, or another Toyota vehicle, you should wax your car a second time around the middle of winter using a spray wax. This will reinforce the protection your automobile already has against the elements.
  • Using a Pressure Sprayer: If you have even the slightest scratch in your car’s paint that exposes metal, it can be a problem if road salt adheres to that spot. Road salt is corrosive and it can cause rust on exposed metal if it’s not removed quickly. After every storm, use a pressure sprayer to rinse your vehicle off. Don’t forget to rinse your vehicle’s undercarriage as well as its painted body.

Do you need to restock your supply of Toyota parts and accessories to tend to your vehicle throughout the winter? If so, order them from our Toyota parts center now. For more winter car care tips, contact St. Cloud Toyota today.

Toyota Camry Dashboard Warning Lights Explained

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, October 27th, 2017 at 5:38 PM

Do you drive a Totoya Camry from St. Cloud Toyota? If so, it’s time you learn a little about the dashboard warning lights that could activate while driving. It’s important to note that most of these lights are just that, a warning, but there are some that need to be taken more seriously than others. This means that you should seek service at our dealership immediately.


If the light with the battery on it activates, you likely have a charge issue with the battery. Either the battery is dead, it has a low charge, or there is an issue with the alternator. You will probably encounter some sort of starting issues if you don’t get the battery issue resolved.

Air Bag

If you see a light with a person sitting down with a seat belt and a bag in front of them, you likely have an issue with the airbag system in your Toyota Camry. You will want our experienced service team to investigate this as soon as possible so you and your passenger are protected in the event of an accident.


If the oil light comes on, it’s time to get an oil change. This light features an oil can with a drop of oil coming from the spout. You should never wait too long to get an oil change because fresh oil keeps your engine properly lubricated. Proper lubrication ensures that all of the belts and other parts work properly and do not break when the vehicle is being operated.

Seat Belt

The seat belt light is one of the only lights that will activate as soon as you start the car and not deactivate until you put your seatbelt on. A beeping sound will also accompany the light.

Visit St. Cloud Toyota today for routine service for your Toyota Camry. We are located at 418 2nd St South, right here in Waite Park, MN.

Don’t Miss Our Candy Buy Back for Heroes Event

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, October 19th, 2017 at 2:57 PM

Since we opened our doors more than 45 years ago, our family-owned and operated Toyota dealership has given countless people the chance to buy new Toyota cars and reliable pre-owned cars on the most affordable terms available. While we’re proud to have served generations of motorists in our Toyota showroom, finance department, and parts and service centers, we’re prouder of our demonstrated commitment to giving back.

One way we’re giving back this year is by hosting a Candy Buy Back for Heroes event at our Toyota dealership. This fun-filled event will begin at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 1, and it will wrap up at 8 p.m. that evening.

Throughout the event, we’ll pay children for the candy they give to us, which we will then donate to various veterans’ organizations that support our military heroes. We’ll also send some of the candy to troops who are currently serving our country overseas.

We’ll give kids a one-dollar coin for every pound of candy they give us, up to five pounds of candy. In addition to us buying back candy, our event will include numerous activities geared toward families and children. Several local vendors will also participate in our Candy Buy Back for Heroes event and we’re thrilled they share our support for the military.

If you’re looking for a fun-filled, rewarding way to kick off the Halloween holiday, join us for our Candy Buy Back for Heroes event on November 1, 2017. We look forward to seeing you at St. Cloud Toyota and we’re eager to continue giving back to our extended community for generations to come.

The 2018 Toyota Yaris iA is Full of Surprises

Equipped with standard 16-inch alloy wheels, the Toyota Yaris iA is appealing to more than drivers who just want a car to get from one location to another.

If you appreciate in-car technology, you’ll love a few of the sport sedan’s other surprises. The 2018 Toyota Yaris iA is outfitted with a 7-inch multimedia system, for instance. You’ll also be impressed that the new Toyota Yaris even has voice recognition.

Many motorists who are concerned about safety are both surprised and happy to learn that the 2018 Toyota Yaris iA has a standard low-speed, pre-collision and automatic emergency braking system. The Toyota brand added this standard feature as part of its overall strategy to equip all Toyota models with standard automatic emergency braking by the end of the current calendar year.

What else surprises us about the new Toyota Yaris iA? The sport sedan’s large trunk, striking looks, keyless entry, and push-button start are pleasant surprises for many drivers.
