Tips & Tricks
If you’re looking to get behind the wheel of a new car this winter, visit our Toyota dealership near Wayne, PA, to find a tough vehicle capable of conquering Pennsylvania’s rough seasonal weather. Why choose a Toyota? With their outstanding powertrains, litany of tech perks and assortment of comfort and convenience features, Toyota models are perfect for anyone who needs a vehicle they can rely on day-in and day-out. Here at Conicelli Toyota of Conshohocken, we have plenty of Toyota models that will not only get you through the long winter, but that you’ll actually enjoy driving.
Last month, we gave you tips for getting your car, truck, SUV or minivan road-trip ready for the summer. But now that school’s out and things have calmed down, it’s time to actually head out for some summer fun! When choosing the perfect car to take on your adventure, why not go with Honda’s latest offering? The 2016 Honda Fit went on sale at our Honda dealership near Philadelphia, PA, at the beginning of the month, and it’s just the right blend of playful and practical, with its sporty-yet-refined driving dynamics, stylish good looks and an impressive 41 highway mpg.
If you’re stuck on where to go and what to do, we have a few suggestions for you. Take advantage of that great gas mileage and head out to one of the Philadelphia area’s several drive-in movie theaters. Drive-in theaters used to be all the rage, but over the past few decades the number of theaters has fallen from over 4,000 to less than 400. We’re lucky to have several right here in the Greater Philadelphia Area, so there’s no excuse not to celebrate the weekend with a Flashback Friday at the movies! Hit the road and have a little vintage-style fun in your modern Honda Fit.
The air is getting warmer, the days are getting longer and the sun is shining brighter. It’s officially summer, which means you finally have the freedom to take on all those things you’d love to get to during the rest of the year, but never seem to have time for. Now’s the time to pack the family into your Sienna and road-trip out of town to see grandma, or squeeze all your friends into your RAV4 and head on that cross-country adventure you’ve been dreaming about since college. Why wait any longer when there’s no better time than the present? (more…)
Did you know that this week is National Pet Week? It’s a special time of year when you have the chance to celebrate the bond between you and your favorite furry four-legged friend. In honor of National Pet Week, we thought we’d help you get ready for the summer by providing you with some tips for taking Fido along with you in the car. We know how much you love to travel with your dog, and want to help you ensure your pet is always as safe as you are when riding in the car.
Check out our helpful list of tips for road-tripping with your favorite pooch:
It’s never safe for your dog to move freely about the cabin of your vehicle while you’re driving. Besides being a distraction for the driver, it’s not safe if you’re involved in an accident. If that does happen, your pet could be seriously injured. Plus, you don’t want your dog to press something they’re not supposed to, like the gas pedal!
- Make sure your dog is safely buckled into the backseat of your vehicle or confined in a crate. If you’re involved in an accident, an unrestrained dog could easily be thrown around the cabin.
- Always buckle your dog into the backseat. If an airbag deploys in the front, your pet could be injured.
- Never leave your dog unattended for long periods of time in a hot or cold car.
- If you’re taking your pet on a trip far from home, have a microchip put in it before you go. If you don’t want to do that, make sure it has a proper ID tag attached to its collar with your cell phone number.
- Learn the name of an emergency animal clinic near where you’re heading, just in case! This is especially important if your dog is getting up there in age.
