The Toyota Effect: National Public Lands Day

As a Toyota dealer, we care deeply about our impact on the community and the environment around us at Apple Valley Toyota in Maryland and West Virginia. That’s why we’re proud to announce that the Toyota brand will be sponsoring National Public Lands Day across the country on September 24, 2016.

This initiative incorporates a hands-on approach to restoring, refurbishing, and rehabilitating the environment. Thousands of Toyota volunteers will unite in a variety of national parks, local forests, and beaches in an effort to make sure it is not only our vehicles that “go places,” but also our time and energy that “go” toward positively impacting the world around us.

What you may not know is that more than 30 percent of all land in America is public and it is your right to enjoy it. This also means that it is our civic duty to take care of the public areas where we spend time recreationally. This month is a great time to celebrate the space which we all share and learn more about mother nature.

Trash, invasive species, and trails in disrepair can make enjoying the great public spaces available difficult. With your help, we can learn more about plants and wildlife as well as how to take care of and preserve them for years to come.

The 23rd annual National Public Lands Day is free of fees; we are simply looking for as many people to take part as possible. Visit the National Public Lands Day webpage to find an event near you or to learn more about how to volunteer.

Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles Celebrates 20th Anniversary

According to Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, “The best new cars make the best used cars.” Here at Apple Valley Toyota in Maryland, we know that couldn’t be truer. With special deals, great service, and a variety of new and pre-owned Toyota vehicles, we look forward to helping our customers get the most out of their Toyota experience.

Buying pre-owned can make buyers apprehensive about the quality of vehicle they are getting, but with Toyota cars, you can rest assured your car will be in top shape when it leaves our lot. The Toyota Certified Used Vehicles (TCUV) program, launched in 1996, is devoted to giving you peace of mind with a variety of inspections and warranties. You’ll get a “like new” vehicle at a pre-owned car price.

In the last 20 years, TCUV has sold approximately five million certified pre-owned Toyota cars, offering a 160-point quality assurance inspection, seven-year/100,000 miles limited powertrain warranty, one-year, 24-hour roadside assistance plan, and a 12-month/12,000 mile limited comprehensive pre-owned car warranty.

The TCUV program is available at over 1,200 participating Toyota dealers across the country, allowing for a great Toyota car no matter where you live. More secure than traditional pre-owned car options, Toyota ensures quality, dependability, and reliability for new and pre-owned vehicles.
With a good balance of mileage, model/model year, and vehicle condition, pre-owned cars can give a bang for your buck. Buying pre-owned can provide you with a great deal on a relatively new car or an older vehicle for cheap with a few scratches, tough enough for a new driver. Add in the insurance costs you can save and the freedom to upgrade without high car payments, pre-owned may be the route for you.

Toyota offers the perfect new SUV for any family

2016 brought with it three new and improved Toyota SUVs into the world that provide sleek looks, ultimate comfort, and endless technology features to suit any lifestyle. Whether you’re shopping for a vehicle to transport your kids to their afterschool activities, or you’re looking to treat yourself this school year, your search ends here. You’re about to get the scoop on the Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Highlander, and Toyota RAV4 — all of which are available at Apple Valley Toyota!

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is a powerful and spacious SUV with 4-wheel drive, a V6 engine and automatic five-speed transmission. With enough space to carry tons of cargo inside, the Toyota 4Runner also has a trailer hitch to allow for towing. This can come in handy for family trips, moving to a new home, or transporting gear for a variety of extracurricular activities. Optional features like rigid running boards, cargo cross bars, and all-weather floor mats and cargo tray make the 4Runner ideal for taking any item to any place, even if things may get a little bit messy.

The 2016 Toyota Highlander is a trendy all-wheel drive vehicle with a V6 engine and automatic six-speed transmission. The Toyota Highlander is great for the various gadgets it offers such as power heated mirrors, heated windshield washer jets, and Bluetooth capabilities. With super comfortable split-bench reclining rear seats, rear heat with separate controls and third-row seating, the Toyota Highlander is extremely functional for transporting the whole family on a daily basis.

The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is the most compact of the three SUVs with a 4-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission.

Toyota Tundra Achieves One Million in Mileage

How many miles are on your favorite car right now? Whether it’s 50,000 or 200,000, we know how tempting it is to keep looking at the numbers rise and cling on to the vehicle. At Apple Valley Toyota, we share the same passion with our customers. Our favorite story this week is that of Victor Sheppard and his Toyota Tundra.

The Louisiana resident bought the 2007 Toyota Tundra nine years ago, and his mileage went up to an incredible 1,020,130, according to the Truck Trend Network.

“One day I was driving and the truck’s odometer hit 999,999 miles,” Sheppard said in the article. “I kept waiting for it to turn over, but it didn’t and I knew I had gone more than a mile. I brought it into LeBlanc to have it inspected.”

Grudgingly, Sheppard sold the truck to a buyer — none other than the Toyota company itself. Upon expert inspection, incredibly, the engine was in fairly good state and looked pretty clean. Not only the company bought it from him, but they negotiated a deal, with Sheppard received a 2016 Toyota Tundra Double Cab Limited.

The 2016 Toyota Tundra figures among our list of new Toyota cars. It’s a proud, American-made truck that drives with a classic feel. There’s a choice of two engines. The first is a 4.6-liter V8 engine that outputs 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft. of torque. The second option is more powerful, and it’s a 5.7-liter V8 engine that generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft. of torque. This full-size pickup has three cab styles. The base SR trim includes 18-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, heated mirrors, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and many more features.

Toyota Leads the Industry in Innovation

An innovative company is one we can get behind. Seeing the ways the Toyota company seeks to not only develop useful car technology, but also make it accessible to a wide market of people through affordable cars, is what motivates us. Many vehicles in our new Toyota inventory take advantage of some of the latest in safety and convenience developments, and the Toyota brand is making waves in the industry with an impressive outlook to the future.

A report talks about how Toyota innovates in comparison to other car makers, and, for the second year in a row, the company is leading the race in the United States. The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued more patents under the company’s name than for anyone else.

“As companies in the automotive industry transform themselves into broader mobility providers, no auto company better demonstrates innovation and technology for the future than Toyota,” said Jeff Makarewicz, Senior Vice President, Toyota Technical Center (TTC), Toyota’s North American Research & Development Headquarters. “We’re focused on delivering great experiences for our customers, a cornerstone of Toyota’s product commitment, and this recognition is proof we’re living up to that promise.”

One car that’s built with forward-thinking is the 2016 Toyota RAV4. Even the standard LE trim comes with a pretty impressive assortment of features that assist the driver, such as driver blind spot mirror, roof rails, a rear privacy glass, a rearview camera, 60/40-split folding rear seats, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, and a USB port for media. When it comes to safety, the Toyota Safety Sense package adds a system that detects pedestrians and warns of impending collisions, and automatically break as well. With the latest technological features and powerful safety systems, we’re confident that the 2016 Toyota RAV4 has what it takes to satisfy technophiles.
