Why Buy Toyota
At Webb Toyota, we think enough of the brand that we committed our dealership to it. Our dealership is bursting with a large selection of its cars, trucks, SUVs. But why should buy Toyota, one of the world’s most popular brands? Find out here.
Quality, Reliability, and Durability
Toyota boasts a well-deserved reputation for making high-quality cars that last. According to the company website, they “are committed to building vehicles of the highest quality using precision production processes and a skilled and dedicated workforce.” To that end, each of their vehicles receives constant checking to ensure that company standards are met.
This commitment has garnered the loyalty of customers and the recognition of noted auto authorities.
• In 2020, Which? called Toyota the Car Brand of the Year saying that it “continues to dominate its rivals in terms of its ultimate reliability.”
• The year also saw one Quality Award and five Dependability Awards from J.D. Power.
• Kelley Blue Book voted the company #1 in most awarded brands of the year because its models received 23 awards in 2020. The authority applauded the “legendary reputation for reliability and durability” as revealed by “family-friendly vehicles that combine easy-to-use interiors, a comfortable ride, and top-notch value.”
To keep vehicles in their best shape, every Toyota comes with ToyotaCare, a maintenance plan that grants free normal factory scheduled maintenance for two years or 25,000 miles, and 24-hour Roadside Assistance for two years and unlimited mileage.
You can drive confidently around the roads and highways of San Juan County, NM, knowing that your Toyota protects you with high-tech driver assists. Standard on many trims and models is Toyota Safety Sense™, which contains the following technologies:
• Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
• Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
• Lane Departure Alert
• Automatic High Beams
• Lane Tracing Assist
• Road Sign Assist
In addition, all Toyota vehicles, except for the Yaris iA, include the STAR™ Safety System, which ensures that you maintain control and avoid accidents in certain circumstances. It consists of the following:
• Vehicle Stability Control
• Traction Control
• Anti-Lock Brakes
• Electronic Brake Distribution
• Brake Assist
These protective features have received notice from national safety organizations that continue to reward Toyota models. The Toyota Corolla, for example, has been receiving the highest Five-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration every year since 2016. The car was also called a Top Safety Pick in 2018 and 2020 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Commitment to Technology
You can count on experiencing the latest automotive technologies in a Toyota. It marketed the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, the Toyota Prius, which is still a leader among the many alternative-fuel offerings that now exist. The 2021 version gets up to an EPA-estimated 54 MPG in the city and 50 MPG on the highway.
At the forefront of mobile technology is the 2021 Toyota Mirai, which uses hydrogen fuel cells to power up. The only emission from this futuristic platform is water. Five minutes of refueling is all it takes for up to 402 miles of estimated range. The company wants to advance this tech so much that it is offering free fuel for up to six years or $15,000.
Other advancements that you’ll find in Toyota vehicles are a color Head-Up Display that projects speed and hybrid indicators on the windshield and Qi-compatible wireless charging. The infotainment system integrates your compatible smartphone, encouraging you to make calls and access contacts while you’re on the road.
Because of the legendary longevity of Toyota vehicles, the only reason you would quite possibly sell one is to upgrade to a newer model. You’ll be happy to know that Toyotas have excellent resale values. While the average vehicle retains only 37 percent of its retail price after five years, according to Kelley Blue Book, some Toyota models, such as the 2020 Toyota Tacoma, will sell for up to 61 percent of its MSRP in five years. Edmunds gave Toyota its Best Retained Value Award in 2019.
