Prepare Your Toyota for Summer Travel near Quincy, MA

Prepare Your Toyota for Summer Travel near Quincy, MA

Considering a weekend away to visit Wollaston Beach or Adams National Historic Park? Or perhaps you’re ready to explore more of New England from the comfort of your own vehicle. Either way, Toyota of Braintree is here to help with a few ways to make sure your car, SUV, minivan, or pickup truck is ready! 

Schedule a Multi-Point Inspection

Getting stranded with a vehicle full of people is no fun. So we suggest scheduling an appointment with our Service Department at least a week or two before a long trip so our technicians can do a quick multi-point inspection. They’ll check to make sure there is the proper amount of clean oil, coolant to avoid overheating the engine on hot summer days, and look for any signs of broken wiring or damaged parts. Depending on the age of the battery, they can run a quick test to make sure it has enough power to last for a few months. Brakes are another crucial component and they are easy to check when the tires are removed for a routine tire rotation service. 

Check the Tires and Windshield Wipers

In the meantime, there are also a few things you can check from home. The first is the condition of each tire. You’ll want to make sure that there is enough tread to grip gravel or dirt roads and combat heavy rain. It’s also good to check for any signs of cracking in the tire or pieces of debris that seem caught within the rubber, as these can quickly cause a flat. Next, take a look at the condition of the windshield wipers. There should not be any rust along the metal blade or any blistering of the rubber coating. Even if they look good from the outside, take a few minutes to step inside your vehicle and test their effectiveness with the wiper fluid. If you see any streaks or gaps in the windshield, it’s time for a new set. 

Stock Emergency Supplies

Another important thing is to make sure you have an emergency preparation kit that’s fully stocked within your Toyota. We suggest having a medical first aid kit with the essentials and also items to help in case you do end up with a dead battery or a flat tire. This can include jumper cables, a flashlight with extra batteries, non-perishable snacks, and an extra blanket. Now is a also a good time to check on your ToyotaCare package since it comes with 24-hour Roadside Assistance* that includes tire service, towing, winching, emergency fuel delivery, and battery jump start.

Buying my most recent Toyota was my first time dealing with Joe Lawlor, and I was pleasantly surprised. He was a perfect fit for me. Straight shooter, down to earth, no games. He was watching out for my best interest and following up when he said he would. I highly recommend Joe for your next purchase or lease.

I have owned seven Toyotas in my lifetime, and with my experiences at Braintree Toyota with their service department, I have come to appreciate the value in having factory certified technicians do the work. I got 230,000 miles and 8 years out of my last Highlander, and I attribute a large part of that because I always had Braintree Toyota service it. With that said, I also value the importance of having a good service writer take care of you. Some don't know what they are doing, so are always looking to build your repair order up higher. I have been very fortunate to repeatedly find service writers in Braintree Toyota that were hard-working, honest, and looked out for my money as if it was their own. Because of this mindset and dedication, I keep coming back and it has paid in spades for me. Kendol Huggins is the epitome of this mindset, and I highly recommend that you give him a call or stop by to have your Toyota (or any make) looked at for repairs.

Thank Joe!

This time buying a car started out very differently than my previous experiences at Toyota of Braintree. It started on the internet with a request for an appointment. Eric quickly responded and we were off and running. When arrived I was introduced to Joe Lawlor. He was knowledgeable, exceptionally helpful and very personable in this time of social distancing. The one thing that did not change was the care and understanding that the whole team at Toyota of Braintree took to insure I was satisfied with my new car. Great job Joe and team
