Sunday, July 24th, 2016

A lot of car buyers like having all the newest bells and whistles attached to the car models – high-tech options, high-performance engines and more. But when it gets down to it, what drivers are looking for most in an automobile is dependability and reliability. The Toyota Corolla is a model that has been serving the US for 48 years and continues to satisfy drivers year round. If dependability is something that fits your needs, then look no more, because there’s only one mid-sized sedan that meets that criterion — the 2016 Toyota Corolla Four-Door Sedan CVT S. The Corolla is definitely a car that will please almost everyone who is looking to get the most for their money, and also come home with a stylish car that delivers on all fronts.

First off, people tend to think that a mid-sized sedan will fail to provide ample room for passengers, especially in the back seat. But you will be surprised when sitting in the Toyota Corolla. There is plenty of legroom in the backseat of the car. Unlike some smaller sedans, passengers riding in the back won’t be uncomfortable for those long car trips with friends and family.

The 2016 Toyota Corolla is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. Using a six-speed transmission, the power of the engine is sent to the wheels. The peppy engine can push the Corolla from zero to 60 in about 9 seconds.

The model comes with some great additional features, including a back-up camera, an input for your iPod/MP3 player, steering wheel controls, and Bluetooth capabilities.

Toyota Engineer Focuses on Car Seat Safety

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

After any visit to my parents’ vacation, my mother is bound to tell me at least one time before we leave in our car to be extra careful because “there’s precious cargo in there.” Now, my mother isn’t talking about me, nor my wife. She’s referring to our children, both of whom are still in car seats. We were careful in our selection of car seats and we’re very careful about the installation of the car seats. We’re lucky, the seats we have fit neatly into the back of our Toyota Rav4.

But, while we may be particular about how our car seats are installed, other parents are not, according to o Buckle Up for Life, Toyota’s partnership with the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital that helps educate families about child safety seats. According to the organization, only one in four child car seats is properly installed. If you look in the rear seat of your Toyota model, such as the 2016 Toyota Corolla Four-Door Sedan CVT S, found here at Toyota of Muncie, you will notice metal anchors in the crevice between seat cushion and the back cushion. That’s the piece your seat will attach to. Toyota’s Jennifer Pelky, and engineer in the Toyota Technical Center, is responsible for ensuring those anchors meet federal safety requirements – a role she takes very seriously. In addition to ensuring the parts meet requirements, Pelky is also passionate about car seat education, volunteering much of her time to teach proper installation.

“As a parent I value the safety of my children above everything else and I see a lot of parents who don’t know they’re doing it wrong, but they’re making an effort and that is great,” says Pelky. “And I know that when they leave, they’re safer than when they came in. That, to me, is huge.”

The U.S. Department of Transportation reports that in 2012, 1,168 children under 14 died in traffic accidents. Another 169,000 were injured. But those numbers are likely going down. In 2013, total traffic fatalities hit historic lows, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
