Average Lifespan of a Toyota Car Battery

We depend on our Toyota to get us where we need to go on a daily basis. Every once in a blue moon, however, we go out to our Toyota and discover that it won’t start when we turn the ignition. This is a classic dead battery case. When was the last time you changed it? You don’t remember? Well, let us explain the average lifespan of a Toyota car battery so you can avoid this inconvenience in the future. (more…)

Best Bookstores in Pittsburgh, PA

One of the best gifts that you can give anyone for the holidays is a book.

2016 Toyota Toyotathon Holiday Commercial

2016 Toyota Toyotathon Holiday Commercial

For about 11 months out of the year, we tend to strongly dislike commercials (except for Toyota ones) because they interrupt our favorite shows and movies every 15 minutes. Once December hits, our attitude does a 180 and we love seeing the holiday commercials. To us, these commercials signal that the holiday season is truly underway. While we love the Coca-Cola polar bears and Hershey’s Kisses “bells”, our favorite commercials are the ones by Toyota. This holiday season, the Japanese auto brand does not disappoint with its new commercial, which showcases the Toyotathon event and features a cameo of the Tundra and RAV4. If you haven’t seen the commercial yet, you can watch it right here! (more…)
