One of the most popular cars on the market right now is the brand-new Toyota Prius. Watch the video to learn more about the new Prius models that have just been released and to see a cost-benefit analysis of a Toyota Prius hybrid and an average non-hybrid car.
Currently, there are three Prius models available: the Toyota Prius C (the subcompact), the Prius V (the larger Prius), and the standard-sized Prius. The regular Toyota Prius gets a combined fuel economy rating of roughly 50 mpg, making it one of the most efficient of the affordable hybrids. After the experts at Cnet looked at the numbers, the amount extra that you would spend on a hybrid rather than a comparably equipped non-hybrid can be earned back in just five years or less, all while enjoying reduced trips to the pump and the knowledge that you’ve made a difference for the environment.

If you’re looking to replace your current ride with a new or used Toyota, it’s important to remember that you will be a lot happier with your purchase if you take the time to do a little bit of research before you head to the Toyota of Greenfield dealership in Mass. Read this article for tips on how you can prepare for your next trip to the Toyota dealership.
Research Your Options
Instead of discovering your different options at the Toyota dealership, you may want to do some car research at home before you head over to the dealer. Consider what type of car you will need for the next 2-5 years and the style you’re after. Ask yourself if your style is bolder or more reserved.
Prepare a Test Drive Checklist and a List of Questions
The next step is to come up with a list of questions for the salesperson that helps you at the Toyota dealership. Keep a pen and paper next to you while you do your research and make a note of the questions you cannot find answers to on the Internet—the salesperson will be able to help with these. Next, prepare a checklist of things that you want to be sure to pay close attention to during the test driving process. It’s essential to take advantage of being in the passenger seat when the salesperson takes the wheel. Evaluate things that you would not be able to evaluate when behind the wheel, such as the vehicle’s climate control, radio, and dashboard layout. Then, when you’re driving, be sure to make all of the proper adjustments before taking off down the road. And make sure that you carefully evaluate the car’s ride quality, handling ability, visibility, maneuverability in a parking lot, and acceleration.
Look at the Finances
Although Toyotas are priced very affordably, it’s important to look at your finances to find out whether it would make more sense to buy a new or used Toyota. If you decide to finance, it’s a good idea to order a credit report and check it over for errors before you head to the Toyota dealership, just to raise your chances of getting a good rate on a car loan.

Routine maintenance is a preventative measure—it ensures that you won’t have to deal with major and avoidable repairs down the line because your car’s components have worn out faster than they were designed to. Read on to find out more about the Toyota dealership maintenance services that your Toyota will need on a routine basis if you want it to last for the long run.
The most important thing that you can do to stave off expensive auto repairs down the line is to go to the Toyota dealership for regular oil changes. Your Toyota’s engine needs fresh oil on a regular basis to stay cool and well lubricated. Without regular oil changes, your engine could overheat, seize up, and fail, which will has the potential of costing you thousands of dollars to repair.
Check your Toyota’s owner’s manual to find out how often your transmission fluid should be replaced. If you don’t replace your transmission fluid regularly enough, your Toyota’s transmission will likely fail. Transmission fluid is also something that has the potential to leak and cause damage to other components of your car, so if you see a fluid under your Toyota that is red, pink, or brown, head to the Toyota dealership’s service center as soon as possible.
It’s a good idea to check your Toyota’s tire pressure at least once a month. If your Toyota’s tires are not properly inflated, your tires will need to be replaced more often, and your car’s fuel economy, traction, and braking power will suffer. You can inflate your tires at a gas station, or your Toyota dealership will gladly inflate your tires to the proper level.
The Toyota dealership service center can test your battery to see whether or not it’s effectively holding a charge. If your battery isn’t able to hold a charge very well, it’s better to replace it rather than to risk being unable to start your car when you need it most.
For high-quality maintenance that will extend the life of your Toyota and reduce the amount of money in the long run that you will spend on car-related expenses, visit Toyota of Greenfield.
