What are the Benefits of Buying a Used Car from McGee Toyota?

Benefits of Buying a Used Car from a Dealership in Dudley, MA 

Here at McGee Toyota of Dudley, we understand why you may want to purchase a pre-owned car rather than a new model. Pre-owned vehicles are typically a much more affordable option and oftentimes, you can find a gem that was well maintained with plenty of style and low mileage. However, there is the matter of deciding whether purchasing from a dealer or a private seller is the best course of action for you. Let us share the benefits of purchasing a pre-owned vehicle from a trusted dealership like McGee Toyota of Dudley.

Is One of the Headlights or Taillights Out on Your Toyota? Come to Our Service Center!

Toyota Light Replacements in Dudley, MA 

With us being located near some of the best cities on the East Coast, we get to enjoy a lot of light after the sun goes down. With all that light, we might not always notice that our taillights have gone out until we get pulled over by a cop. Usually they will let you off with a warning because you had absolutely no idea that your lights were out (of course, it helps when you are polite), but they ask that you get those lights fixed as soon as possible.

Hail falling on a rural road

Is Hail in the Forecast? Protect Your Toyota!

Tips for Protecting Your Toyota from Hail When You Don’t Have a Garage

Here at McGee Toyota, we LOVE epic spring and summertime thunderstorms! There’s something about watching that darkening sky and feeling that oppression in the air that gives us thrills! When conditions are right, those epic thunderstorms can produce hail ranging from the size of peas to softballs. Both of these size variations can cause damage to your Toyota – the pea-sized pellets can roughen the smooth exterior and destroy the paint, while the softball-sized monsters can create some serious dents or shatter the windows. When severe weather that can produce hail approaches and you receive a warning from the National Weather Service, we definitely recommend getting your Toyota in the garage right away. However, we understand that this might not be possible – you might not have access to a garage at all or another family member’s vehicle gets priority parking. Luckily, we have some tips to help you protect your Toyota.

How Do I Make Sure That a Giant TV Will Fit in My Toyota?

How to Fit Large Purchases in Your Toyota 

We were just scrolling through Facebook when we saw a video that featured someone driving down the highway with their vehicle doors wide open as they were bringing home a giant TV. While we couldn’t help but laugh at the video, we will acknowledge that driving your vehicle with the doors wide open is both dangerous and illegal. We also know that you will make some big purchases once in a while, but you will want to make sure that the items fit in your Toyota before handing over your credit card to the cashier.
