The Toyota Sienna

toyotasiennaecaronecarrollton
 

 

Daddy like. Mommy like. One look at the wider stance of the all-new Sienna says it all: This is a vehicle designed to turn corners — and turn heads. It’s been totally redesigned to redefine what driving a minivan says about you. Along with its more spacious interior, powerful yet efficient engines and enough technology to impress a rocket scientist, Sienna offers something most minivans don’t: a responsive driving feel wrapped in a sleek shape. And Toyota Sienna is assembled in America, with among the highest levels of North American content in the segment.

ECO DRIVING INDICATOR

The power and torque of the two available engines will invite spirited driving. To help you drive in an economically responsible manner, there’s an Eco Driving Indicator on the instrument meter and on the available Multi-Information Display. It shows you when your right foot is getting the upper hand, so you can back off a bit to achieve better fuel economy.

MPG

With refined aerodynamics, engine efficiency optimized by dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence and a smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission, Sienna has the best combined mpg ratings of any 7- or 8-passenger van.

SECOND-ROW TIP-UP AND LONG SLIDE

To create a huge, easily accessible cargo area in the middle section of Sienna, the seat cushions of the second row tip up, allowing the entire row to slide farther forward for cargo or rear passenger comfort.

STOWABLE CENTER PASSENGER SEAT

The middle seat in the second row is designed for maximum versatility. Fold it upright, and it’s a comfortable, well- cushioned seat. Or remove it and store it in the cargo area storage compartment for a passageway to the third row.

STORAGE SPACE

The floor behind the third-row seat offers storage well deep enough to serve as a safe haven for valuable items you want stored.

SAFETY

ADVANCED AIRBAG SYSTEM

In a collision, the standard dual stage front airbag system senses impact severity while adjusting airbag deployment accordingly.

SIDE AIRBAGS

Sienna comes standard with front seat-mounted side airbags.

THREE-ROW SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAGS

The side curtain airbags that are standard on Sienna cover the length of the cabin from the front seats to the third-row seats.

LATCH

Short for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children, LATCH includes lower anchors on outboard second-row seats and the middle seat in the third row. 

The Toyota Sienna is a family car unlike any other.  At eCarOne in Carrollton, Texas we have luxury used vehicles like the Toyota Sienna waiting for you to drive.  All of our cars are well maintained and tested.  All prove to be vehicles that will last you miles to come.  While you are out at our dealership we would love to show you around and let you test-drive any one of our great luxury used cars

Safe Traveling – What’s Most Important

saferoadtripecaronecarrollton
 

 

Road trips certainly are a lot of work and can be pretty exhausting.  Packing, mapping out routes, getting car ready for trip – these are all things that can tire you out before even getting in the car.  This can make it hard to stay alert and awake for the drive.  Parents have admitted to nodding off at the wheel while on family road trips. 

Many times children’s needs are put first.  Packing snacks, entertaining, planning bathroom breaks and rest stops for the children seem to be taking precedence over making sure the driver is indeed prepared to endure the long road trip.  Although unhappy children can be a problem, the priority should be the driver’s needs so the entire family can arrive safely, even if they are unhappy.  Below are some tips to help stay awake on long road trips.

  • Get plenty of rest the night before – 7-9 hours.
  • Start driving in morning, not at night.  Road fatalities are 10 times more likely to occur when it’s dark outside)
  • Plan to take breaks every 2 hours and get out and walk around.
  • When feeling sleepy, loud music and opened windows is not the answer.  Neither is a power nap or coffee break – what has been proven to help is to pull over and do some calisthenics – jumping jacks, deep knee bends, and toe touches.
  • Don’t hesitate to ask for help.  There is no shame in switching drivers – sometimes it is the best solution.

eCarOne in Carrollton, Texas would love to assist you in planning your next road trip.  We have plenty of luxury used vehicles that will successfully get you from one destination to another.  If you visit our dealership in Carrollton, we can get you test-driving a car today – just in time for your trip!  We can also answer any questions you may have about safe traveling with your family.

Leasing is making a comeback

LeasingEcarone
 

 

Because of the rise of finance loan interest rates, automobile leasing is on the rise and can provide plenty of benefits. Leasing a vehicle typically includes a lease agreement that can be negotiated.  Dealerships negotiate a mileage allowance, lease payment, the lease term, and more.  At the end of the lease term the lessee must return the vehicle to or buy it from the owner. In most cases, leasing is more affordable than financing a car.

Learn more about how leasing can save you money from buyingadvice.com, and then head to eCarOne in Carrollton, Texas to visit with one of our sales representatives about leasing one of our luxury vehicles.

The Acura MDX

A car is an orchestration of thousands of complex, moving and synchronizing parts. It should be more than a fashion accessory.  More than a status symbol in the form of a badge.  Nowhere is this more true than in an Acura.  Because a car, especially a luxury car, should be one of substance.

When we launched the Acura Legend in 1986, its very existence constituted a first. In the years since, we’ve never stopped innovating.

What’s Your Plan this Father’s Day?

fathersdayecaronecarrollton
 

 

Most likely you are not going to go out and purchase your dad a car for Fathers Day, but if you are the son or daughter of the year, then TrueCar.com has done some research that surprisingly shows the cars that our dads want.

“Unlike the list of vehicles men prefer, which includes the Porsche 911 in the top spot, the data shows that fathers have traded in speed for practical vehicles with a back seat,” said Kristen Andersson, Senior Analyst at TrueCar.com. “We’re finding that fathers need a fuel-efficient car for commuting to work and weekend activities.”

The research showed many dads leaning towards sedans, trucks, and minivans.  Although this seems surprising, it makes sense.  Fathers, with children, want space for rides to football practice and more importantly a vehicle that provides safety for loved ones.

Read more on the Top 10 cars your Dad really wants. 

eCarOne in Carrollton, would love to help you out this Father’s Day and help you find the perfect gift for your dad.  Come out and take a look at our luxury used cars today.

GRAND SPORT COUPE & CONVERTIBLE:

Grand Sport echoes from the formative days of the 1960s when Corvette was cutting its teeth in brutal endurance races such as Les 24 Heures du Mans and the 12 Hours of Sebring. Those learnings applied, today’s Grand Sport coupe offers one of the best combinations of all-out performance and efficiency of any sports car.
