 Toyota has made a wise move by halting sales. Yes it will cost them millions but in the end they have shown once again what customer service is all about- They have placed the customer in front of the money.The media wants to make it a bigger story by saying they knew about this for years. That may be true but deciding what the best plan of action does not always come quickly for even small companies much less large ones like Toyota. So I say good job Toyota and thank you for putting the safety of the consumer ahead of the dollars —-AND YOU DID NOT NEED THE GOVERNMENT TO TELL YOU WHAT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO…

5 Simple Tips for Satisfactory Car Maintenance

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010
  1. A well maintained truck or car may last 3 to 4 times longer than a poorly serviced one.
  2. Oil changes for a 1995 or newer vehicle should be scheduled at 5,000 mile intervals
  3. Preventative maintenance items, i.e. general or specific system inspections, tire rotations, and tune ups, scheduled in conjunction with 5,000 mile oil changes, greatly reduce unexpected car repair costs.
  4. Shopping for the cheapest oil change or car repair price may be a very expensive choice.  Poor personnel and parts performance may be reflected in a cheaper estimate.
  5. Independent auto repair facilities, with AAA Motor Club approval, are required to meet standards of excellence that are reflected in both superior personnel and parts used in maintenance or repairs conducted on your vehicle.  Certified technicians and quality parts are a winning combination resulting in customer satisfaction and longer life of your vehicle.
