April is National Car Care Month!

April is National Car Care Month!

by Kelly O'Neill | Apr 3, 2017 | 802 Toyota

Spring cleaning isn’t just for your house! Most cars took a beating this winter from pot-hole filled roads, mud, ice, snow and sleet, so spend this April and get your car looking and feeling like new! Here’s a helpful list of items that should be be checked on your vehicle to make sure it’s in tip-top shape: Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant. Check the hoses and belts to make sure they are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or showing signs of excessive wear. Check the battery and replace if necessary. Make sure the connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free. Check the brake system annually and have the brake linings, rotors and drums inspected at each oil change. Inspect the exhaust system for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangers if there is an unusual noise. Exhaust leaks can be dangerous and must be corrected without delay. Schedule a tune-up to help the engine deliver the best balance of power and fuel economy and produce the lowest level of emissions. Check the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system, as proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and for safety reasons such as defrosting. Inspect the steering and suspension system annually including shock absorbers, struts and chassis parts such as ball joints, tie rod ends and other related components. Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots. Check the wipers and lighting so that you...

Winter Driving Safety Tips from AAA!

Winter Driving Safety Tips from AAA!

by Kelly O'Neill | Feb 2, 2017 | 802 Honda, 802 Toyota, Twin City Subaru

Winter Driving Tips from AAA    Severe weather can be both frightening and dangerous for automobile travel. Motorists should know the safety rules for dealing with winter road emergencies. AAA reminds motorists to be cautious while driving in adverse weather. AAA recommends the following winter driving tips: Avoid driving while you’re fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks. Never run a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage. Make certain your tires are properly inflated. Keep your gas tank at least half full. If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather. Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand). Always look and steer where you want to go. Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle. Tips for long-distance winter trips: Watch weather reports prior to a long-distance drive or before driving in isolated areas. Delay trips when especially bad weather is expected. If you must leave, let others know your route, destination and estimated time of arrival. Always make sure your vehicle is in peak operating condition by having it inspected. Keep at least half a tank of gasoline in your vehicle at all times. Pack a cellphone with your local AAA’s telephone number, plus blankets, gloves, hats, food, water and any needed medication in your vehicle. If you become snow-bound, stay with your vehicle. It provides temporary shelter and makes it easier for rescuers to locate you. Don’t try to walk in a severe storm. It’s easy to lose sight of your vehicle...

The Relay for Life of Central Vermont took place on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at Spaulding High School in Barre, VT. The sun was shining, bands were playing, creamies were devoured, games were played, survivors, caregivers, family and friends walked and ran laps, and fundraising continued from 11:00 am until midnight! Team 802 Cars Cruisaders had such a blast the past few months fundraising for the event, including the Purple Pie Challenge, $5 Friday BBQ lunches, and Casual Friday’s at each dealership located in Berlin, VT. The team raised over $15,000 with more donations still trickling in, making them the 1st place fundraising team at this particular Relay. Dave Birmingham, chief Dog Walker & owner of 802Cars.com, received a 2nd place trophy for his individual fundraising efforts.

April is National Car Care Month!

April is National Car Care Month!

by Kelly O'Neill | Apr 4, 2016 | 802 Scion, 802 Toyota

Spring cleaning isn’t just for your house! Most cars took a beating this winter from pot-hole filled roads, mud, ice, snow and sleet, so spend this April and get your car looking and feeling like new! Here’s a helpful list of items that should be be checked on your vehicle to make sure it’s in tip-top shape: Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant. Check the hoses and belts to make sure they are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or showing signs of excessive wear. Check the battery and replace if necessary. Make sure the connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free. Check the brake system annually and have the brake linings, rotors and drums inspected at each oil change. Inspect the exhaust system for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangers if there is an unusual noise. Exhaust leaks can be dangerous and must be corrected without delay. Schedule a tune-up to help the engine deliver the best balance of power and fuel economy and produce the lowest level of emissions. Check the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system, as proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and for safety reasons such as defrosting. Inspect the steering and suspension system annually including shock absorbers, struts and chassis parts such as ball joints, tie rod ends and other related components. Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots. Check the wipers and lighting so that you...

Reasons to Buy a Toyota

Reasons to Buy a Toyota

by Kelly O'Neill | Jan 11, 2016 | 802 Toyota

There are many reasons to buy a Toyota but we have narrowed it down to eight very good reasons why your next vehicle purchase should be a Toyota. Number 1: Safety Why were 6 Toyota vehicles named “Top Safety Picks” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in 2015? Because Toyota designs them with the knowledge that safety is more than features — it’s the lives of the people who drive our cars. For Toyota, the journey towards a safe road never ends. This belief, along with collaborative research efforts, drives Toyota to create advancements and innovations in safety that have helped (and continue to help) prevent crashes and protect people. Number 2: Durability Based on IHS Automotive: Polk U.S. Vehicles In Operation vs. new vehicle registrations for MY 1995-2014, Toyota has the highest percentage of vehicles still on the road today. 80% of Toyotas sold in the last 20 years are still on the road today, which tells you how long lasting and durable Toyota’s can be. Toyota is also proud to say that they are the most fuel-efficient and the greatest durability of any full-line automotive manufacturer. Number 3: Value Since 2011, Toyota has won over 70 Kelley Blue Book awards and accolades, including Best Resale Value three years in a row! In 2014 alone, Toyota had four vehicles in the Kelley Blue Book Best Retail Value: Top Ten Cars list and Toyota had the top two spots on that list, led by the remarkably resilient Toyota FJ Cruiser. Number 4: Environmentally Friendly (Green) Vehicles Toyota, one of the most environment friendly car companies, is a leading company in the development and...

October Winter Tire Savings Event

October Winter Tire Savings Event

by Kelly O'Neill | Oct 9, 2015 | 802 Scion, 802 Toyota

The beginning of October is not too early to get prepared for this coming winter. Vermont has already seen temperatures low in the 30’s which means snow may be upon us sooner than anticipated. At 802 Toyota Scion, our service department is already preparing for the winter months and booking appointments to mount winter tires. Right now you can get quality tires at a great price. During the Toyota Tire Savings Event, buy 3 tires and get the 4th one for a dollar. The 802 Toyota Tire Center provides tire options in all approved sizes to meet most customers’ brand preferences. Competitively priced tires are selected to provide an exceptional driving experience with characteristics including superior handling for wet or dry traction, stability, tread life, acoustics, comfort and rolling resistance, which impacts fuel economy.

A Thursday Night at Thunder Road Speedbowl

by Kelly O'Neill | Jul 17, 2015 | 802 Honda, 802 Scion, 802 Toyota, 802Cars.com, Twin City Subaru

We had the chance to spend the day with the Hallstrom Motorsports team on race day and we have to say, it was so much fun! The 802Cars.com #1 Camry is driven by Shawn Fluery, who is a Subaru Technician at Twin City Subaru by day and a race car driver by night. Before the races we met the Hallstrom Motorsports team at their shop in Northfield, VT, and watched as they prepared the car for the race before loading it up into their very well-equipped Hallstrom Motorsports trailer. The Hallstrom Motorsports team is family and they love what they do. They are a top late model race team owned by husband and wife duo Louis and Lisa Hallstrom. The team fields winning race cars in the ACT Tour and Thunder Road. This family takes their racing very seriously and has for decades. Lisa and Louis have two sons, Evan and Will. Evan, 13, also a driver for Hallstrom Motorsports, races Dare Devil and Street Stock at Speedway 51 in New Hampshire. They also have a dedicated crew of 11 who work tirelessly to make the #1 Camry the best it can be. Once at Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, VT, we entered the “pit” and got an exclusive look at what happens before the race. There is always a rush to get there on time to purchase the required tires for the race, then there is the waiting around for the practice laps and the quick tune ups between those laps. Then it’s race time! The first races are made up of qualifying rounds. If you make the top...

Toyota Tops the Cars.com 2015 American-Made Index

by Kelly O'Neill | Jul 2, 2015 | 802 Toyota

Cars.com Names Toyota Camry as Most American-Made… Again!   The results are in, and Cars.com has named two Toyota models as most American-Made. The Toyota Camry and the Toyota Sienna have claimed the top two spots, respectively, in the annual Cars.com American-Made Index.                 This marks Toyota’s return to the American-Made pinnacle for the first time in three years and the fifth time overall that Camry has been ranked number one on the index. According to Cars.com, the “American-Made Index rates vehicles built and bought in the United States. Factors include the percentage of parts considered “domestic” under federal regulations, whether the car is assembled in the U.S. and U.S. sales. Models with domestic-parts content ratings below 75 percent are disqualified, as well as models built exclusively outside the U.S. or models soon to be discontinued without a U.S.-built successor. “These results are a testament to Toyota’s continued investment and growth in the United States,” said Toyota North America CEO Jim Lentz, who also serves as President of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing, North America, Inc. “We are strengthening our commitments to American manufacturing so we can better satisfy the needs of our customers for decades to come.” The Toyota Camry, America’s best-selling car for 13 consecutive years, comes out of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc. (TMMK) in Georgetown, Ky. alongside the Camry Hybrid, Avalon and Avalon Hybrid. TMMK is Toyota’s largest manufacturing facility in North America, which also builds engines and employs more than 7,500. The plant built its 10-millionth vehicle in 2014 and will begin adding the Lexus ES to...

For the second consecutive year 802Cars.com (and our family of auto dealerships) is helping to lead the fight against cancer in Central Vermont! We are proud to be a state-wide sponsor for the 2015  Vermont series of Relay for Life events. These life-changing events give us a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, raise funds and awareness, and fight back against the disease. Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay For Life movement. As of June 6 this year, there are 48 teams and 220 participants that have raised $21,217.22 for the Relay for Life of Central Vermont. Last year we participated in the Nordic Style Relay Event as team 802Cars.com and contributed just over $20,0oo to the fight against cancer in Vermont. This year we will be known as the 802Cars Cruisaders and will be participating a little closer to home in the Relay for Life of Central Vermont, which will be held at Spaulding High School on June 19th at 6pm. Also this year, 802 Honda is the official off-site “Relay Hotspot” in Central VT! Which means Relay participants can go to 802 Honda to collect items they may need such as luminaria bags and donation envelopes. Our Relay team is working hard to beat last year’s total contribution, which means our goal for this year is $25,000! That is a lofty goal, but we know we can do it and how far that amount of money can go to help cancer patients and survivors right here in Vermont. Dave Birmingham, owner of 802Cars.com believes it’s important that we...

April is National Car Care Month!

April is National Car Care Month!

by Kelly O'Neill | Apr 7, 2015 | 802 Scion, 802 Toyota

Spring cleaning isn’t just for your house! April is National Car Care month and after the winter we just had, regular maintenance is most likely required on your vehicle. Most cars took a beating, so spend this April and get your car looking and feeling like new. Here’s a helpful list on what should be checked on your vehicle: Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant. Check the hoses and belts to make sure they are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or showing signs of excessive wear. Check the battery and replace if necessary. Make sure the connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free. Check the brake system annually and have the brake linings, rotors and drums inspected at each oil change. Inspect the exhaust system for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangers if there is an unusual noise. Exhaust leaks can be dangerous and must be corrected without delay. Schedule a tune-up to help the engine deliver the best balance of power and fuel economy and produce the lowest level of emissions. Check the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system, as proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and for safety reasons such as defrosting. Inspect the steering and suspension system annually including shock absorbers, struts and chassis parts such as ball joints, tie rod ends and other related components. Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots. Check the wipers and lighting so...

Vehicle Highlight: 2015 Toyota Corolla

by Kelly O'Neill | Mar 4, 2015 | 802 Toyota

The New 2015 Toyota Corolla is all about style and comfort.  EXTERIOR – The Toyota Corolla elevates your style with its eye-catching design, premium interior with the features you want, and enough technology to help you stay connected. It takes the best of everything you love about driving and perfects it. Standard LED headlights set the stage for a stylish look, no matter the time. Designed to enhance the profile of Corolla, they help you see and be seen. The best part is they come standard on every model. With an appearance that matches its attitude, Corolla S offers a piano-black grille highlighted by chrome trim. It’s just as aggressive and bold as the rest of the car. Even sitting still, the 2015 Toyota Corolla has a heightened presence. Available 17-in. alloy wheels add to the unique profile. INTERIOR – The smooth lines and aerodynamic style of the exterior continue inside Corolla. The first thing you’ll notice is the fluid dashboard, a continuous line from side to side that helps accentuate the instrument panel, center console and passenger area. An obsessive attention to detail is apparent as you enter the cabin of Corolla. Available on LE, LE Eco and S, piano-black accents help showcase a stylish interior that has been elevated to a whole new level. Now the interior will get as many looks as the exterior. The 2015 Toyota Corolla was designed with extra space for your rear passengers so they can kick back in the back seat a little easier. A 60/40 split allows you to easily reconfigure the rear seats to extend trunk space. Fold one seat flat to get a little extra...

We gave away some great prizes during a raffle and a “Guess how many candies are in the jar” game, including two gift certificates for full vehicle details! Our General Manager, Roger Williams, gave a lovely speech and our Service Director, Phil Daley, made sure that the customers knew to come back for their ToyotaCare services.  To top off the event we enjoyed a wonderful meal from The Farmhouse Catering Co. (Cabot, VT). See all the great benefits of purchasing your new Toyota from 802 Toyota by clicking here!! See the images below from our great night with the new Toyota...

Our very first customer of 2015 purchased a Certified Used Toyota Tacoma. Her name is Christsonthy Kerner and she wanted a vehicle that is reliable and rugged. She also needed a vehicle that could easily carry her mountain bikes and skis.

Toyota Certified Used Vehicles

Toyota uses a 160-Point Quality Assurance Inspection to make sure we deal in only the best pre-owned vehicles. Once we make sure they deserve the Certified Used Vehicle badge, we back them with a 12-month/12,000-mile limited comprehensive warranty, a 7-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, and one year of roadside assistance. We're also happy to give you the CARFAX® vehicle history report, as well as offer standard new car financing rates.

Toyota Tire Center

Your Toyota Assistant Service Manager will be happy to check your air pressure and perform a visual inspection of your tires. If the manager notices any signs of unusual wear, they can assist in repair or replacement.

And when you purchase tires from a participating Toyota Tire Center dealer, they're backed by the tire manufacturer's warranty and serviced through your Toyota dealer.

President's Award

Each year, Toyota Motor Sales recognizes its stellar dealerships with the prestigious President's Award. It's a very high honor a dealership can receive from Toyota, and is only awarded to those dealerships who have demonstrated a commitment to maintaining Toyota's high standards for customer satisfaction.

One of Toyota's primary goals is to emphasize the entire ownership experience. We want to help ensure that our customers are satisfied not only at the time of purchase, but as long as they own their vehicle. Offering top quality cars and trucks is, of course, the first step - but only the beginning. Toyota dealerships strive to match the quality of our products with the finest service in the industry. In order to qualify as a President's Award winner, dealerships must excel in each of a series of categories, including Customer Sales Satisfaction and Customer Service Satisfaction. Dealerships which meet the requirements in all categories receive name badge recognition at all dealer events, national recognition in an Automotive News advertisement and, of course, the beautiful President's Award Tiffany crystal trophy.

The team at 802 Toyota surely went above and beyond to help us get a the vehicle we needed when we needed it. Our sales person Chris was committed and caring, he stood outside with me in -10° weather, after closing time, to ensure that we got the right used vehicle. Cat undid a signed deal, at my request and because of “MY” error, to get us the right vehicle. They got me the best rate on financing I could find. Sam and Justin took time to get all the paperwork right and answered all the questions I had with patience. The service department completed service on a recall for the original vehicle we had planned on purchasing when the recall came through at the last minute. They took a bad situation and an unfair customer and made it right through teamwork and compassion. These are good people and they have won me over. I plan on purchasing my next vehicle from them. I hope Chris can forgive me for my unfair expectations. He’s a salesman with a heart of gold and a warm, caring human being. I was the customer from hell and they did right by me even though they didn’t need to.
