It’s that time of the year once again to give back to those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Toyota of Orlando has partnered up with the Toys for Tots foundation and is a local toy drop location! We’re asking for your help to collect new and unwrapped toys to ensure those who need assistance in our community are able to have a toy to open up for Christmas!
Not only will you be helping a child in need, we’ll help you in return! For those who donate a toy at our dealership by December 19th, you’ll be eligible for $20 off any auto service! We even have a few suggestions on what auto service you can get done to be prepared for this winter!

Winter auto service to get done
As we mentioned earlier, you’ll be able to take advantage of getting $20 off any auto service if you donate a toy to our Toys for Tots drive. Some suggested services to have done before winter arrives include:
Tire service – It’s important to get your tires checked out before winter because of the change of temperature. For every ten degree drop in temperature, most tires lose out on one psi. That number can be even more extreme if your tires are older or worn. Be sure to keep an eye on your tires, and get them checked out this season.
Auto fluids services – When the temperature lowers, auto fluids like car oil, antifreeze, power steering, and transmission fluids will start to thicken. If they get too thick, it could cause some serious performance issues that can mess with your car’s functionality.
Spark plug and battery checks – We recommend getting your spark plugs and car battery tested before winter hits. You wouldn’t want to be caught stranded somewhere in the cold thanks to an issue that could have been easily checked beforehand.
Be sure to schedule an auto service appointment at Toyota of Orlando before you get too busy during this season. You can call us at (407) 298-4500 to schedule an appointment at whatever time is most convenient for you! We’re open until 10 p.m. seven days a week!
