    Topping the list of Toyota-owner perks is ToyotaCare*, Toyota’s maintenance package that comes standard with all new Toyota purchases or leases. You won’t pay maintenance costs for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. Plus, Toyota has your back if you are locked out, stranded, out of fuel, or out of power with their included 2 years of free 24-hour roadside assistance.

  2. Brake Assist – Brake assist detects sudden braking and attempts to slow the vehicle down quicker by adding brake pressure to the wheels that need it most.
  3. Aerodynamic Body Design – Designed to have the lowest drag in the industry, Toyota vehicles take less power to keep you moving. The Toyota Avalon, Camry and Prius are especially renowned for their aerodynamic design.

    Although Toyota is a Japanese company, Toyota vehicles are assembled in the United States. Toyota manufacturing plants and Toyota management companies employ thousands upon thousands of hardworking Americans.
