These days most used cars are available to view in photographs online before a physical inspection. Whilst photos can provide a good indication about the condition of a car, they only tell part of the story.

Tyre shopping. It’s not a particularly exciting proposition is it?

But considering how essential tyres are to the safety and performance of your car, making sure you’ve got the right rubber is pretty important.

To mark this year’s National Tree Day, we combined our love of the environment with our passion for supporting the local Frankston community.

Frankston Toyota got involved in National Tree Day’s dedicated Schools Tree Day activities on Friday 29 July, donating over 200 trees and plants to Kananook Primary School!

With the arrival of winter comes many of our favourite things: heading up to the mountains for a weekend away with friends, tucking into a hot pie at the local footy, getting cosy on the couch with a good book in front of an open fire, the list goes on.

When it comes to driving, however, winter can be one of the nasty seasons. So, we’ve decided to put our heads together and come up with a few handy tips to keep your and your family safe this chilly season.

One of the main expenses we are all bound to come across when owning a car is the cost of regular maintenance. And, let’s be honest here, we ALL dislike shelling out for a service!

Sadly, as with any mechanical device, certain parts of your car need changing from time to time – and due to the initial cost factor, you might think that going to a non-Toyota service Centre who offers cheaper parts over genuine ones is the way to go, cost wise.

This is however, not necessarily so.

...and why you only get what you pay for.

Sometimes it seems like there's always a new bill to pay or another expense to deal with. Then all of a sudden your car is due for a service and you find yourself looking for a nice, cheap option. So you head online to Google cheap car servicing and hey presto, $99 sounds good. Hang on, $79 that sounds even better!

What's best for my wallet and my car?

Each year millions of motorists shun their local car dealerships looking for a cheaper option for a car service.

This is particularly true for owners whose cars are more than three years old and out of warranty. The assumption seems to be that they will pay less money by getting the work done at a service centre other than the manufacturer.
