The Best Car in the World: The Toyota Corolla

Toyota Corolla
The Toyota Corolla is one of the most dependable cars on the market.

The Toyota Corolla first hit the scene in 1966 and by July 2013, the Toyota Corolla has accumulated more than 40 million sales world-wide, more than any other car on the planet. Not only are they one of the most sold cars, but over 26 million out of these 40 million Corollas are still on the road according to Toyota. Of course, we already knew that Toyota cars are dependable, with over 80% of the Toyotas bought in the last year still on the road, but when you look at the fact that 65% of Toyota Corollas bought in the last 47 years are still on the road, then you’ve got something else… something beyond dependable. A Toyota Corolla starts to look more like an investment, an asset, a necessity, or like the best car in the world.

But what makes the Toyota Corolla so great? Is it only its impressive dependability? While its dependability is definitely a key element when considering the Corolla, it certainly isn’t the only reason to buy one. Its quiet interior, with Piano-black accents, a fluid dashboard, and SofTex ® seats make it one of the most comfortable cars on the market. Combine this with the Toyota Corolla’s stylish, sleek exterior and you’ve got the perfect car to drive for the next 10+ years of your life. Is the Toyota Corolla the best car in the world? You be the judge. Check out our New Toyota Corollas and Used Toyota Corollas at Haddad Toyota today to see how you can get your hands on a Corolla today!

5 Tips for A Stress-Free Family Road Trip

Smiling, Happy Family of 4
Be sure to keep your family smiling this summer with our 5 tips for stress-free family road trips.

With Memorial Day just around the corner, and summer vacation soon to follow, everyone is starting to think about their summer trips. However, sometimes road trips with the family are a little less family fun and a little more family overload. Here are 5 tips for a stress-free family road trip that are sure to make your summer travel more enjoyable.

  1. Service Your Car Before You Go: This includes topping off fluids and checking your tires before you head out.
  2. Plan Your Route: Portable GPS devices can fail so make sure you have a hard copy map in addition to your GPS.
  3. Bring All Your Necessities: If you’re driving with children, this means you need to ensure you have their toys to entertain them as well as drinks and snacks for along the way and when you get there. Don’t forget to bring a trash bag and baby wipes for those unexpected messes.
  4. Bring Entertainment: While this definitely classifies as a necessity, it’s important enough to mention on its own. Bring books, movies, music, and games and make sure you have all essential power cords.
  5. Stay Connected to Your Location: Toyota’s Entune® in-car system can help you look at places to stop at along the way including food stops, gas stations, and rest areas. Be sure to use the great technology Toyota puts at your finger tips!

Hopefully these 5 tips will help create a stress-free drive for you and your family. Do you have any road trip tips that you think we missed? Be sure to leave your comments below!

How To Keep Your Car Looking New

Man Washing Car - How To Keep Your Car Looking New
Follow these 4 easy steps to keep your car looking great for years to come.

We all love to have a shiny, new car and hate when our new cars get dirty and start to look, well, not new.  If you’ve been wondering how to keep your car looking new for as long as possible, here are a few tips to help make your car maintain its long life.

  1. Clean the Inside of Your Car – Vacuum and shampoo the carpets, clean the inside of your windows and mirrors, clean out the tire well in your trunk, and remove the seat cushions and get all the little crumbs from quickly eaten meals out of the car.
  2. Wash Your Car – We’re not talking about the easy pay a few extra dollars after you pump your gas to get a quick and easy car wash. We’re talking about using sponges and hand washing the car inside and out.
  3. Clean Your Headlights – Whether you buy a headlight restore kit or follow the directions posted on Pinterest on how to clean your headlights using toothpaste (note: we’ve never tried this option, so try at your own discretion), clear headlights will make your car seem much newer.
  4. Buff, Polish, and Wax Your Car – Buffing your car will help remove small scratches and the oxidation that occurs when you leave your car outside for long periods of time. Polishing your car will get it that new car shine, and waxing will help seal in any small scratches missed in your initial buffing.

If you’ve done all 4 steps, and your car still doesn’t look as good as new, then maybe it’s just time for a new car. Check out our great selection at Haddad Toyota for a new car that is sure to keep its shine for many years to come!
