Performance

To call the capabilities of the 4Runner sufficient would be a disservice to this SUV — they’re nothing short of impressive.

  • Downhill Assist Control
  • Part-time 4WD system
  • 5-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i)

Toyota to debut updated safety technology with 2021 Camry release

How is Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ different? 

We have recently learned about some of the important changes that will be included with the release of the 2021 Toyota Camry (more on that soon).

Should you change the kind of oil you’re using in your vehicle?

Is synthetic oil better for my vehicle? 

If the most important thing a person can do to make their vehicles last as long as possible is to change the oil, the second most important thing is to use the right oil. For the most part, modern automobiles, including most new Toyota cars, trucks and SUVs are built to run on synthetic oil. The owner’s manual is going to be filled with maintenance recommendations and our advice is always going to be to follow them. If you’re wondering, ‘Is synthetic oil better for my vehicle,’ the answer is maybe. Some vehicles might call for conventional motor oil, but their overall age and condition could call for a change in the type of oil that is used. A few of our service technicians found these videos that help explain the differences between conventional and synthetic motor oils. If you have any questions, make an appointment with us today.  Read the rest of this entry >>

New RAV4 Prime adds complementary technology to existing hybrid lineup

What is the difference between the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and Toyota RAV4 Prime? 

A strong argument could be made that Toyota is more well-known for its hybrid technology than any other automaker in the industry. As soon as the Prius was shown to be popular with customers, the manufacturer was quick to add its hybrid technology to more platforms each year. Considering the popularity of the Toyota RAV4 crossover SUV, it only made sense for a hybrid version of that vehicle to hit the market. In the 2021 model year, that hybrid crossover family is growing again. So, what is the difference between the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and the Toyota RAV4 Prime?

Are you struggling with decisions about your car’s oil options?

Should I be using synthetic oil in my old car?

If you’re wondering, ‘Should I be using synthetic oil in my old car,’ the Toyota of Decatur Service Department is here to help. The most universally applicable advice is to always follow the recommendations in the owner’s manual. However, there are some scenarios where someone will need to make a tough call. These videos should help you make this important decision. If you have any additional questions about how to get the most from your car, truck or SUV, please make an appointment with our service department today. Read the rest of this entry >>
