Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have passed away in active military service. It is also a time to thank all of the fallen and still with us men and women for their time in duty. So in honor of Memorial Day, All Star Scion would like to thank everyone for their time that has served.

Because we love taking care of our customers and always making sure they get a vehicle at the best price for their budget, All Star Scion offers a Military Rebate!

Featured Vehicle: 2017 Toyota GT86

AS Scion - 2017 Toyota GT86

At All Star Scion we love to keep our customers in the loop about anything and everything related to vehicles. Pretty soon we will be saying goodbye Scion forever and welcoming all its vehicles as Toyota’s. So we want to introduce to you the 2017 Toyota GT86 that will replace the Scion FR-S.

Toyota has redesigned the Scion FR-S to make it into its own Toyota GT86. With a larger front grille, LED headlamps and turn signals, a reshaped bumper, and LED tail lamps, Toyota has surely succeeded in redesigned the FR-S. This complete make-over has made this vehicle even more sleeker and stylish.

The brand new GT86 will get a retuned suspension that will improve handle. The GT86 will still keep the FR-S’s 2.0L tubro-4 engine that delivers 200 horsepower. However, this 6-speed manual gearbox model’s engine, will produce 205 horsepower and 156 foot-pounds of torque.

Toyota wanted to redesign the FR-S to make it more comfortable. They added a new “Grandlux” soft-touch material that will surround the door trims and instrument panels. Different upholstery will be placed on the seats with silver stitching. The GT86 will be getting a brand new sports wheel with integrated audio control and bigger paddle shifters.

The 2017 Toyota GT86 can hold 4 passengers. Both the driver and front passenger will be able to enjoy sufficient head and legroom. Even though the rear truck will be slightly smaller, the split-folding rear seats can help expand this area.

The GT86 comes fully equipped with some of the latest and greatest technology features including:

  • Rearview Camera
  • Voice Recognition
  • Automatic Headlights
  • 7-inch infotainment system with the BeSpoke system that offers navigation, Smartphone apps and Bluetooth
  • Power adjustable driver’s seat

As sad it is to say goodbye to Scion, we are anxiously awaiting the new Toyota arrivals. The 2017 Toyota GT86 is set to arrive in stores around mid-2016.

10 Ideas for Summer Fun

Here in South Louisiana, we know how excruciating the heat can get outside during the summer months. You don’t want the kids to go outside and overheat, but they can’t stay cooped up inside all day without you going crazy! So we have complied a list of some ideas for indoor and outdoor summer fun!

Visit Your Local Park

Visiting your local park for the day is such an easy way to have fun with the kiddos and not shell out any big bucks for amusement rides or park food. Simply pack lunch, a few snacks, and sunscreen. Some local parks also have a water park area so on a hot day your kiddos will love to play in the water! Just make sure to bring towels and extra clothes!

Relay Races - ASK, Scion

Relay Races

This is a great outdoor and indoor activity! Set up different obstacle courses that the kids have to maneuver through and time them each time! It makes for a little healthy competition and they will have a blast doing it. If you it’s raining, you can set up obstacles courses in different rooms for optimal fun.

Fishing

Teaching your kids, or a friend, how to fish is so easy fun! It is an easy way to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with friends and family all while learning a new skill!

Have a Luau in the Backyard

Invite friends, co-workers, family and neighbors over for a luau! Have activities such as limbo, make your own totem pole, and a pineapple eating contest! This is a fun way to get family and friends together. The kids can play and the parents and friends can visit! It’s a win-win!

Get Crafty

Most crafts stores — including chains like Michaels, A. C. Moore, and Hobby Lobby — offer hands-on activities just for kids such as scrapbooking, box decorating, bead stringing, as well as projects using clay, pipe cleaners, and more! Some classes are free; others require a nominal fee — typically $5 or less. For more information about classes, visit Michaels or Hobby Lobby, you can visit your local craft store!

Water Balloons - ASDCJR, ASFL, Scion

Have a Water Balloon Fight

Having a water balloon fight is an awesome way to get friends and neighbors involved! If your kiddos are too young/small to participate in the water balloon fight, get a kiddy pool, fill it with water and balloons and let them pop the balloons with their hands; they’ll have a ball!

Have a Picnic

Pack your kids favorite sandwiches, snacks and drinks for a picnic! Whether it be in your backyard or at your local park. We know your kids will love eating their lunch outdoors. Just don’t forget the picnic blanket!

Volunteer Your Time

Volunteering teaches compassion and responsibility — it also keeps kids busy. There’s plenty little ones can do, like cleaning up a green space or collecting canned goods. You can also bring your kiddos around the neighborhood and help your elderly neighbors do day-to-day tasks such as watering plants, putting up groceries and much more! For more information visit your local Food Pantry or Animal Shelter to see if they would like some extra hands to help!

Visit the Zoo

Pack some sandwiches and take the day to visit the zoo! The kids will love seeing all the animals. If there is a petting zoo, you know you’ll be in there for hours. If you want to visit the zoo check out the Baton Rouge Zoo or the New Orleans Zoo!

Set Up a Lemonade Stand

There is nothing wrong with teaching your children a good work ethic at a young age. Just get them a table, couple chairs, a sign and lemonade! They’ll have a blast trying to sell the neighbors lemonade and they’ll earn a little bit of cash while doing it.

All these activities are inexpensive and a sure way to make the summer much more fun!

Gifts for Mom

Moms tend to spend lots of time shuttling the kids to school and practices, commuting to work and doing every day errands. Even a stay-at-home Mom is probably in her car right now! So since your Mom spends so much time in her car, what better way to say “I appreciate everything you do for me” on Mother’s Day than giving her some awesome gifts for her car! We have compiled a list of some things you can gift to your specular mom on Mother’s Day.

Acts of Service

Let’s be honest, when does Mom have time to detail her car? Especially with her busy schedule between work and running the kids around. So on Mother’s Day, take your Mom’s car and detail it for her! You can pay for someone else to detail it, or you can take the kiddos outside and detail it together as a family! Either way, we know she will appreciate a clean car!

If you are thinking of detailing her car at home, here are a few things that will come in handy.

  • Armor All 4-Piece Complete Car Care Kit
  • This kit comes fully equipped with Armor All Ultra Shine Wash and Wax, Armor All Original Protectant and tire foam for that finishing touch. This car cleaner kit also comes with 25 glass wipes for windows. Simply use the wipes, sprays and cleaner, to wash and protect a car or trucks’ interior and exterior.
  • You will also need brushes, a cleaning mitt and some microfiber towels. You can purchase all of those things at your local car care store, or online!

 Armor All Complete Car Care Kit

Cargo Cover

Protect her belongings from others and from the harsh sun! The Cargo Cover is great gift for any mom. We know that she probably carries a lot of items in her trunk from personal belongings to the kid’s snacks for soccer practice. It’s great for any mom who has to stand out in the sun all day to watch her kid play soccer while her car is sitting in the sun. She won’t ever have to worry about her items being ruined from the sun nor someone trying to steal anything. The Cargo Cover is easily installed and can easily be taken out for any purposes. For further questions, call us at (844) 515-2561 or come stop by All Star Scion.

Scion Security System

One of our worst fears, especially a mom’s, is that someone tries to break into our car to steal our belongings. With the security system mom won’t have to worry about this. Here is how it works. If someone tries to break into the vehicle without having the keyless entry, an alarm will be triggered. The Warn-Away alarm is triggered if an object has stricken one of the windows. With all these alarms going off, the starter will be disabled so the theft cannot drive away with the vehicle. This great technology can ensure you that mom will be a little more peace at mind when she’s at an event with kids. For further questions on this system call us at (844) 515-2561.

Remember, Mother’s Day is about spending time with your mom and telling her how much you appreciate all the things she has done and will continue to do for you. Regardless if you are able to get your Mom something or not, she will enjoy spending time with you! So All Star Automotive would like to say a big thank you to all the awesome Moms out there!
