Summer Heat Tech Tips

AS-Scion & ASL

We can all agree that Louisiana heat during the summer is miserable and we all know how blistering hot it makes our vehicles. It burns your legs on your hot leather seats, you feel like you need to wear oven mitts to touch your steering wheel and your dripping sweat before you even start your car! Summer can be tough on cars, especially during high temperatures when heat can destroy batteries and stress the cooling system and tires. As a precaution, these vehicle components should be checked periodically during summer to help avoid breakdowns and car problems. All Star Scion is here with some awesome summer tech tips to make sure your car is in perfect condition for the hot Louisiana weather.

While driving on the interstate in Louisiana we tend to see a lot of tire pieces. That is because our tires need extra special care in warmer weather as high temperatures put added stress on them. To maximize your tires life and safety, check the tire condition and inflation pressure monthly. It is also good to have the tires rotated every 5,000 – 6,000 miles or at every other oil change. Summer heat will cause the pressure within a tire to rise, therefore, it’s important to check the pressure when tires are cold. Your vehicle’s owner manual includes the recommended air pressure for your vehicle’s tires.

Your brakes are the single most important safety feature on your car. Don’t put yourself or your family at risk this summer by riding around on worn down or faulty brakes. Brakes need to be replaced when the lining on your brake pad or brake shoe is worn down past the minimum thickness specified by the car manufacturer or state law. Here are some signs that your brakes need to be checked:

  • Your brake pedal becomes very soft and mushy
  • Your brake pedal is very hard and resistant
  • Your brake pedal rests too low or too high
  • Indication or warning lights on the dashboard
  • Loud and constant scraping and grinding sounds coming from the brakes

During the winter, your car’s air filter can get clogged with dirt and other thick debris. A clogged air filter can really lower your fuel efficiency. Replacing a dirty or clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent. But how do you know when to change your air filter? The recommended interval is every 12,000 miles, but that can be affected by the particular road and air conditions in which you drive. If you do a lot of driving on dirt or gravel roads, then your air filter is going to clog up much faster than an air filter in a vehicle that’s used strictly for highway driving. The only real way to know if you need to replace your air filter is take it out and give it a quick inspection.

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.

All Star Scion - Cargo Cover

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!

National Car Care Month

2016-04-11 National Car Care Month

April is National Care Car Month! “Why April?” you may ask yourself. In April, as winter comes to an end, it is time to get your Scion ready for spring driving and summer road trips! National Car Care Month reminds you to take care of any issues that may have occurred or been ignored during winter. Spring time is filled with sunshine, some afternoon showers and lots of pollen. Make sure your Scion’s tires are rotated, balanced and in good condition for those wet roads. Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can alleviate bigger issues down the road. Also having your wheels properly aligned after a season of tough conditions can help keep you on the road in a safe direction. Also make sure your windshield wiper blades are being replaced every 6-12 months to avoid streaking on your windshield.

With all of that pollen in the air, your Scion’s air filter can get clogged up pretty quickly. Make sure you are routinely checking and changing it to ensure optimal air flow is being produced. When it comes to your Scion’s safety, the brake system is at the top of the list. Making sure your brakes are working properly before you head out on those slick roads or long summer road trips will ensure for a safe and comfortable ride! Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. For routine maintenance, check your vehicle’s braking system at least once a year. A thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.

If you need assistance with any of these car care tips, we are more than happy to help! You can schedule a service appointment 24/7 by clicking here!

Spring Cleaning Your Scion

AS Scion

Spring is approaching quickly! We know how eager you are to start spring cleaning your home, but don’t forget to spring clean your Scion! Giving your car a good scrub inside and out not only protects your investment, but it’ll make your vehicle a nicer place for those beautiful spring days! We have complied some tips and tricks to help you give your Scion a clean start to spring!

Freshening the Interior

Start by cleaning out all the trash, to-go cups, and any other debris you have in your Scion. Make sure to slide your seats forward and backwards to get every piece of trash. Thoroughly vacuum out your Scion including your trunk. Then organize what is left. Next will be to deep clean your Scion’s interior. If dirt has embedded itself in the textures of your vinyl, some detail scrubbing with an old toothbrush will do the trick! The old toothbrush can come in handy to clean the crumbs and dirt out of those pesky seams in your seat cushions. If you have any shoe scuff marks or sticky food stains on any vinyl or leather parts of your Scion, take a Magic Eraser to those and they’ll disappear! Once you’ve got your Scion completely detailed and squeaky clean, put a few dryer sheets under your cars seats to have a nice clean scent in your Scion!

Cleaning the Exterior

Now that the interior of your Scion is nice and clean, it is time to take care of the exterior of your Scion. Most people jump right into washing their vehicle’s paint, but try cleaning your tires and rims before washing your vehicle’s paint. The tires and rims are often the dirtiest part of the vehicle and as you spray them off, dirt can get on the paint of your vehicle. So spray and clean your tires, rims and undercarriage first before you move on to the rest of the vehicle!

Make sure you have a cleaner formulated specifically for cars. Once you’ve mixed the cleaner and water, you can go one step further and fill a second bucket with clean rinse water. Use the clean bucket of water to rinse off your wash mitt often. Rinsing off your wash mitt often helps remove most of the road grit and helps prevent scratching your vehicle. When you are finished washing your Scion, make sure to wash your mitt in the washing machine to ensure that is it completely clean. Make sure when rinsing your vehicle off, go from top to bottom. This ensures that the soap is running downwards and will help you clean it off better. Dry off your Scion with a micro fiber towel or a squeegee/water blade. Then you can move on to waxing, cleaning your headlights with a headlight restoration kit, and then lastly, cleaning your glass. Make sure you are leaving your glass till last! Use a cleaner with no ammonia and a microfiber cloth to scrub both the inside and outside of your windows.

Although this is a few hours of work, detailing and caring for your Scion yourself can save you thousands each year! Further, it protects and lengthens the life of your automobile investment.
