Have a Game Plan For Fall Service

 

With fall quickly approaching, it is important to have your vehicle ready for the chilly temperatures ahead. Although it does not snow or get too terribly cold here in South Louisiana, you still need to have your car service and ready for the fall weather that will soon be upon us! All Star Toyota of Baton Rouge has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!

Automester_1

  • Fuel System

Keep the gas tank as full as possible. This limits condensation in the gas tank to minimize water, which can freeze, in the fuel line. “Antigel” additives are available, particularly for diesel-powered vehicles. On non-fuel-injected cars, keep the choke/carburetor butterfly lubricated so it won’t stick!

  • Check your tires

Checking your tires, tire pressure and treat depth before seasons change is very important. Uneven wear can indicate a need for wheel alignment. During the colder months, tire pressure should be checked weekly because tires lose pressure when the temperatures drop.

  • Check all of the lights

Walk around the outside of the car and check the operation of all lights: headlights, taillights, parking lights, brake lights and emergency flashers. Replace all broken bulbs and those that have stopped working. Make sure all lights are clean. If you own an older vehicle with sealed-beam headlamps, you might want to pony up for halogen lamps for improved visibility and safer driving.

These are just a few things All Star Toyota of Baton Rouge suggests you check before the fall season rolls around! Taking care of your vehicle and routinely getting it serviced will ensure your vehicle will last a lot longer! Make sure to schedule your service appointment, and view all of our Service Specials!

Back to School for Your Car Too!

Back to School Road Sign with Dramatic Clouds and Sky.

Although it may still feel like summer time outside, back-to-school time is right around the corner. August is always a busy month for parents and kids. Parents are trying to squeeze in last minute vacations and the kids are wanting to play with their friends all day! One item that is not usually on the top of the to-do list when heading back to school is your vehicle maintenance. Whether you’re attending high school, heading back to college or you’re the chauffeur for your family, your vehicle is going to need a little TLC before heading back to school and work!

Check the Simple Things

Make sure you check your windshield wipers, windshield wiper fluid, battery terminals and your headlights and brake lights! These may seem like a very silly things to check, but you don’t want one of your children driving to college to get in a wreck or pulled over because of a break light being out! These are a few and simple things to check that will ensure you and your children are safe on the road!

Stay Organized

The cars of busy college students and parents with children in school often resemble cargo trucks after the start of school. Books, sports equipment, gym shoes, etc. often find a permanent home in vehicles. So stay organized! There are a number of bags and organizers which can help maximize the space in your trunk. Carve out some space just for your safety equipment so you will always be prepared.

Air Filters

Waiting to change air filters until they are completely full is dangerous to both vehicles and their drivers. Clogged air filters can be damaging to your engine as well as impede the vehicle’s performance.  Also, unwanted toxins can enter into the vehicle as the fan is run for heat and air.

Make sure to schedule a service appointment with one of our certified technicians that will be able to service your vehicle and get you back on the road! Doing routine maintenance on your vehicle will not only ensure your safety on the road, but it will also prolong the life of your vehicle!

My Review of All Star Toyota of Baton Rouge:

I purchased a 2016 Scion TC a couple of months ago and was extremely impressed by the professional, friendly, knowledgeable salesperson, Joshua Adebutu. He is truly an asset to All Star Toyota, in my humble opinion. It was a very smooth transaction with a great willingness on Mr. Adebutu’s part to assuage any concerns or questions I had. This is the 2nd vehicle I’ve purchased from that dealership and I will definitely be back. I can’t thank Mr. Adebutu enough for going above and beyond

5 Vehicle Tips to Stay Safe this Summer

ASTBR

Whether you are heading to the beach with friends, taking a road trip with your family, or commuting back and forth to work, it is important that your vehicle is ready and properly prepared for the summer months. That is why All Star Toyota of Baton Rouge has compiled a list of vehicle tips to ensure that you will stay safe this summer!

Get your Vehicle Serviced

Before you get on the road, get your vehicle serviced. Regular maintenance such as oil changes, battery checked and tire rotations will go a long way towards preventing breakdowns. If your vehicle has not been serviced according to Toyota’s recommendations, schedule a maintenance checkup with us right away! You can schedule a service appointment by clicking here!

Emergency Kit Prepared

Having an emergency roadside kit in your vehicle at all times is very important. You can either purchase an emergency roadside kit here, or put one together yourself! In your emergency roadside kit you should have a roll of duct tape, a screwdriver, flares, flashlight, jumper cables, pliers, and vise grips. Also be sure you know how to use your vehicle’s jack and spare tire.

Avoid Overloading your Vehicle

If you’re headed out on a road trip, you may be ready to throw lots of luggage and gear on top and in the back. Be careful not to exceed your vehicle’s acceptable load limit. Check your driver door jamb to find out how much weight your vehicle can hold.

Watch out for Overheating

Overheating can cause serious summer breakdowns. Inspect your coolant system including the radiator and pressure cap to make sure they’re in good shape. You should also check hoses and belts for signs of blisters, cracks, and wear. Keep your vehicle hydrated by checking for proper fuel levels and look for signs of leaks, especially coolant. Consider bringing extra coolant, oil, and fluids along with you, especially if you’re taking a long road trip!

Double Check those Babies

Keep kids and pets safe in the car at all times. Make sure your children are properly secured in their car seats and booster seats. Also make sure they remain seated and buckled in when the vehicle is in motion. If you are traveling with a pet, make sure the animal is properly secured in a harness or dog seat belt. Here are some different options for a dog seat belt if you are traveling with a larger dog. Pets are part of the family, so make sure they are properly secured also!

These are some great tips to remember if you are about to take a long road trip, or just for your daily commutes to work and doing errands! Summer time is a great chance to spend some much needed time with family and friends, but always remember these tips to stay safe this summer and you will be ready for any adventure thrown your way!
