By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, July 12th, 2019 at 7:42 PM

One of the many things we love about selling new and pre-owned Toyota cars is the feeling of accomplishment we get when we partner the right car to the right owner. That car will see them through many of the most important moments in their life, and our team at St. Cloud Toyota loves to be a part of it. Of course, we’re also looking for other ways to improve our Toyota cars for our customers, so we thought we’d remind everyone about our official Toyota Accessories store!

Toyota Accessories allow you to improve pretty much every aspect of your vehicle. Say you’re looking for something to help protect the interior of your 2019 Toyota RAV4 from mud and other junk that your shoes can track in. There are a wide array of floor mats available, but the Adventure Package All-Weather Floor Liners are the top of the line. Their heavy-duty composite material construction and deep grooves keep the mud, dirt, road salt, water, and everything else unsavory away from floors until you take them out and spray them down with a hose. It couldn’t be simpler.

Or let’s say you’re looking to expand your storage space. We have a wide array of roof racks available, from basic rails to the Adventure Model Roof Rack Cross Bars. They’re easy to install and have been engineered specifically for your 2019 Toyota RAV4 or 2019 Toyota Highlander. Roof racks make securing unwieldy cargo like kayaks and skis simple with the proper tie-downs, also available in the official Toyota Accessories store.

So what are you waiting for? Come into St. Cloud Toyota today for a new or Toyota certified pre-owned vehicle and grab some awesome accessories while you’re at it.

How to Prep Your Car for a Road Trip

Here at St. Cloud Toyota, we are dedicated to satisfying all of our customer’s automotive needs. We are also a Toyota dealer that understands the value of a good road trip, and what you should do first before you embark on your journey.

To us, there is nothing quite like taking a road trip. It’s as much about the journey as it is the destination. While some may argue that driving can feel slow and tedious, it offers a new perspective of travel and helps you appreciate your car.

All that said, you should prep your vehicle before taking a road trip. There are many ways you can prepare for the trip, but your tires should be at the top of your priority list. Tires support the weight of your vehicle and provide traction with the road. If your tires are worn, or even bald, you can run the risk of finding yourself stranded on the side of the road with a flat. Another essential pre-road trip task is checking your vehicle fluids. While gasoline is essential, three other motor fluids sit at near equal level of importance: coolant, transmission fluid, and motor fluid. While all of these fluids require fewer refills, they can make the difference between getting to your destination and finding yourself on the hunt for a roadside mechanic.

No matter what your eventual destination may be, it is always a good idea to have a Toyota service team by your side that can inspect your car from top to bottom. Our technical team at St. Cloud Toyota can offer your vehicle a thorough evaluation, and can issue any repairs you may need to tackle the open road with complete peace of mind.

How to Change a Flat Tire

Here at St. Cloud Toyota, we are proud to be our customers’ one-stop shop for all of their automotive needs. From our wide selection of new Toyota cars to our talented team of auto professionals, we are committed to your complete satisfaction.

As a leading Toyota dealer, we are ready and willing to answer any car-related questions you may have, and the topic of changing a flat tire comes up quite often. If you manage to pop a flat, don’t panic. The first thing you should do is find a safe space to pull over that gives you plenty of room to get out and change the tire.

Once you’ve found a safe space, remove your spare tire, as well as the car jack, wrench, air pressure gauge, and air compressor if you have them. With the jack, lift the car high enough so that the flat tire is roughly six inches off of the ground. With the car lifted, use the wrench to remove the lug nuts from the tire. Some tires have hub caps, and if this is the case for your car, you will need to remove this first.

After you’ve removed the tire, you should check the air pressure levels of your spare. The last thing you want to do is install a spare that is improperly inflated. If the spare tire isn’t at recommended air pressure levels, use the air compressor to fill it up. With the spare ready, use the wrench and assorted lug nuts to secure it to your vehicle.

With the tire installed, your next step is to find a skilled technician that can either repair your flat tire or help you find a replacement, and our Toyota service center at St. Cloud Toyota should be your first choice. We’ll provide you with everything you need to take to the road again with ease.
