Toyota RAV4

There are few of us who treat our cars like queens: doing a full new paint job for a single paint chip falling off the side of the car. And then there are few others who have found all sorts of fancy uses for their cars: their cars are their dining places, luggage storage areas, libraries and what not. Both extreme cases lead to causing damage to your cars in the long run. Here are some things you might be doing unintentionally to your Toyota RAV4 that might harm your car for good.

Never eat inside your car. It will not only leave grease marks on the inner surfaces but also lead to bugs and insects finding their way into your car, allured by the crumbs that fall off your food. Also the leftover crumbs will leave behind unpleasant odors in your car.

Don't wash your car regularly with chemicals. Its okay to wash the dirt off with plain water but don't use harsh cleaners regularly as it will weaken the paint of your exterior.

Avoid using all-purpose interior cleaner at all costs. Don't fool yourself into believing that a single chemical will be suitable to clean all the different materials inside your car. It is not recommended to use a single cleaner for different materials like plastic, glass and leather etc.

A simple scratch or stain is not a good enough reason to buff your car. By doing so you are scratching the micron layer off your car, diminishing the shielding power of your paint. If you are really bothered by the tiny blemish or scar over your hood, use paint cleaner or glaze filler instead of buffing.

Claying regularly is a big no-no for decontaminating your car paint. Clay surely does the cleaning part well but at the expense of creating undesirable tiny scratches over the shiny surface of your car. You can also use sealant with your wax to do a flawless job.

Don't take your car to just any garage for detailing. It might land you into the merciless claws of mechanics that pretend to fix your car but end up screwing all the nuts and bolts of your vehicle and taking advantage of your innocence. You sure don't want that to happen to you.

Use your flexible spine to place your luggage, grocery bags and backpacks on the ground instead of placing them over the roof of your car as it may scratch the paint, or in worst cases dent the outer surface of your car.

If you are in Washington, and want to get the detailing job done for your Toyota RAV4, hire the experts at Washington Auto Mall.

Toyota Prius

The regenerative technology that feeds the batteries with captured energy from braking and cruising keeps the electric motor's battery pack charged. In other words, hybrids are actually recharging themselves while you drive. The battery size of hybrids has shrunk considerably small, lowering the overall vehicle weight and resulting in improved efficiency.

Hybrids are hot favorites because of their high fuel economy; they make the electric motor do as much of the work as possible. The Toyota Prius, being the most popular hybrid vehicle, has a mileage of about 50 miles per gallon on both highway and in the city.

The ôplug-in hybrids have taken the technology a step further by allowing full electric operation over a limited range (roughly 30 to 40 miles). Your average plug-in hybrid can get around without the gas engine at all, as long as the battery pack is sufficiently charged. In ôdual modes, the gasoline engine shuts off when it's not needed: for example when you are coasting to a stop.

Hybrid vehicles range in size from compact two-seaters to four-seaters, as well as three-row SUVs to eight-passengers, however most are categorize as compact or midsize sedans. All-electric models and dedicated hybrids are packaged to minimize any compromise in passenger space and cargo capacity.

You are also at advantage with hybrids when it comes to payback value. Most car makers offer longer coverage for components specific to hybrid (about eight years of guarantee). This gets you covered in case some issue arises with the batteries or the electric motor.

Your hybrid vehicle has no dearth of luxuries: navigation system, smart phone interfaces, heated seats, climate control, rearview cameras, keyless start systems, unique storage solutions and extra seating fixtures plus many other luxuries come standard with hybrid vehicles.

If you live in South hills and want to buy your Toyota Prius, one of the affordable hybrids with more value for money, visit Washington Auto Mall and get the best deal on high quality hybrids.

Toyota Corolla

Plus sizing is a recent trend to get those bigger wheels under your cars, to make your vehicles appear street cool. If you are interested in buying a new Toyota Corolla car with expensive trim level to get more attractive wheels or tempted to spend big money on upgrading the wheels of your existing corolla for the same reason, answer this: Have you even considered the downsides to larger wheels? Your answer will probably be like this one: ôwell, what, drawbacks?!! Really? Before you jump into signing the papers on your new car or buy a new set of wheels, read on the information we have gathered for your benefit.

Quality of Ride

One of the major drawbacks of larger wheels is the reduced ride quality. Larger wheels certainly look good to the eyes but more than often they have a negative effect on the ride quality. The reason being they include less tire sidewall than smaller wheels. And what does this means? It means you will feel more bumps in otherwise smooth ride, putting a damper on your shiny new set of wheels. The decrease in sidewall of the tire will not only increase the effect of road bumps, pot holes and expansion joints but also increase your road noise. If you prefer a smooth ride and also want those big wheels, just move your tires one inch but never more than that. It will

Loss of Bucks

Yes, larger wheels will rob you off your money. As larger wheels require more force to turn, they increase engine's workload, dropping your vehicle's gas mileage, which results in poor fuel economy. There is undoubtedly a negative correlation between wheel size and fuel economy. When you upgrade your wheels to a slightly larger size, it usually costs you $1000 or more, depending on your automaker. Like many aftermarket modifications, larger wheels are not usually an item that commands a premium on the used-car market; as a result you're unlikely to see this money back into your pocket when you go to sell your car. Upgrade your wheels for your own pleasure, because you might lose your investment if you plan to resale your car in future. Larger wheels are also expensive than the small ones. They require more costly tires, usually in a larger size or with a lower profile than standard ones, so you end up spending more on tire if you opt for larger size.

Our Advice

It's important to understand the potential hazards of upsizing (reduced ride quality and increased cost), it's always better to take an expert advice before spending your money on such stuff. If you are in Washington, and want to give your Toyota corolla wheels a new makeover, let the experts at Washington Auto Mall do a satisfactory job for you at an affordable rate.
