The 2021 Sienna might not be the only hybrid minivan, but it might be the best

Is the 2021 Toyota Sienna the only hybrid minivan? 

We have covered the new Toyota Sienna hybrid minivan quite extensively on the Lexington Toyota Blog. However, our product expert team has been pretty surprised lately by the number of people visiting the showroom asking, ‘Is the 2021 Toyota Sienna the only hybrid minivan?’ Well, no, there Sienna isn’t alone in the narrow hybrid minivan segment of the automotive industry. Chrysler also produces a similar platform, the Pacifica Hybrid minivan. To be sure, both platforms are well ahead of previous generations of minivans, but the two vehicles do have some distinct differences that we think will make it easier for customers to choose the 2021 Sienna at Lexington Toyota. Let’s take a closer look at some things you should know.  Read the rest of this entry >>

How bad could skipping oil changes really be? Bad. Very bad.

What happens if I don’t change my oil? 

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it millions of times: The best way to keep your vehicle in peak condition is to keep up with regularly scheduled maintenance. At the top of that list is getting the oil changed, on time, every time. It would really surprise a lot of people to find out how many times someone in our service department gets asked, ‘What happens if I don’t change my oil?’ This is as terrifying of a question as there is in the automotive industry. Basically, a vehicle that doesn’t get regular oil changes will eventually cease to work. The engine will literally explode to some degree and the driver will be stranded on the side of the road. Let’s take a closer look at a few other things that you should know.  Read the rest of this entry >>

What is the best way to track Toyota maintenance? 

If there is one drum we beat regularly, it’s the importance of keeping up with your vehicle’s regular maintenance. Reminders for oil changes are pretty straightforward, but what about more involved tasks. Do you know when the last time you had your tires rotated? This is important information. So, what is the best way to track Toyota maintenance? Toyota has dedicated some of its vast resources to develop an application that will help you know exactly where you stand in terms of what services need to be performed and when. Additionally, the same app can be used to access your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Our team found these videos that will go over how to use the Toyota App and its various features and functions.

Toyota could be adding another model to its lineup

Is the Toyota Grand Highlander going to be built? 

The Toyota Highlander was one of the charter members of the incredibly popular crossover SUV class of the automotive industry. Not only did the Highlander help popularize the segment, but it often set the bar for everyone else. Toyota has made some pretty significant upgrades for the Highlander in recent years. However, something even bigger (literally) could be on the horizon. One of our teammates was looking at the latest automotive industry news and started wondering, ‘Is the Toyota Grand Highlander going to be built?’ Joey Capparella of Car and Driver magazine seems to think this is a distinct possibility. Our manufacturing partner has recently filed paperwork to trademark the Grand Highlander name. Let’s take a look at what this might mean.  Read the rest of this entry >>
