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.

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!

Affordable Used Car – 2007 Lexus ES 350

Scion

Tax season is here and we know you’ve been thinking about what you’re going to do with your tax return. But we have a better idea. How about put a down payment on a new vehicle? By using your tax refund as a down payment, you may be able to finance a vehicle for a shorter-term loan. With a substantial down payment, you may also be able to get an excellent interest rate and a low monthly payment on your vehicle loan.

We depend on our vehicles every day to get us to and from the places we need to go. Having a reliable vehicle is crucial for having to go to all these places. At All Star Scion we understand that times can be stressful and buying an expensive vehicle is not in the budget. But we have covered! That is why All Star Scion has implemented the Affordable Used Car Program. This is great program for anyone looking to purchase a vehicle that is inexpensive, reliable and in great condition. Shown above is one of the many vehicles in stock at All Star Scion. This Royal Ruby Metallic 2007 Lexus ES 350 is equipped with great key features that makes every drive entertaining yet safe.
