What does this mean? You choose this brand because of its reliability, and ToyotaCare provides coverage of normal factory maintenance for 2 years or 25,000 miles for every new car purchase or lease, plus 2 years of roadside assistance regardless of mileage.

Toyota Cloaking Device and Coin Chute Patents
We’ve talked about a number of Toyota patents before, and the automaker has a tendency to make news for ones that we think are somewhat reasonable. OK, maybe the flying car one wasn’t entirely expected, but it’s not outside of the realm of what we all hope will someday be an option in the auto industry. Plus, it’s just fun. This time, we think Toyota is flaunting some concepts that make perfect sense. Among them is a what many are calling a “cloaking device” that allows drivers to see around their pesky A pillars, and another works as a coin chute to return items that drop between the front seats.

Which Toyota models have all-wheel drive?
Most modern cars have front-wheel drive for the simple reason that it performs well under most conditions and offers better fuel economy. After all, power is only sent to the front wheels, which is half the energy of delivering power to all four. When winter comes along, many motorists feel reassured to have extra handling, which is where AWD comes into the mix. Performance models might also have the drivetrain, as it helps prevent skidding and keeps better on-road traction. If you’re in the market for a new car in the Indianapolis area, you might be thinking ahead to the colder months and wondering which Toyota models have all-wheel drive. Read the rest of this entry »
Will there be a total solar eclipse in 2017 for Indianapolis IN?
It’s not exactly like total solar eclipses never happen, but they frequently take place where we won’t see them. In the middle of the ocean, or simply on different continents. Even rarer than the possibility of any location in the U.S. having the opportunity to view it is what’s happening this month: an eclipse that will travel across the entire continent. From Oregon down to South Carolina, thousands of people will have the chance to see it.
