2018 Toyota Camry Wi-Fi Connect

I am obsessed with the next generation Entune 3.0 system with a Wi-Fi hotspot in the new Toyota Camry! This is a game-changer. It allows you the opportunity to hook up to the internet and read up on the day’s news or stream your favorite episode of that show you missed last night (raise your hand if you haven’t seen last night’s episode of Game of Thrones yet). Obviously, you would do this as a passenger and not as the driver. However, there’s nothing wrong with pulling over to the side of the road and responding to that work email you forgot to get to before you left the house. 

Enjoy your complimentary Wi-Fi hotspot trial for 6 months/2 GB of data (whichever comes first) in your new Camry. Connect up to 5 devices to the internet at the speed of 4G LTE.

Exciting New Camry

Sneak Peak: 2018 Toyota Camry

Sneak Peak: 2018 Toyota Camry

Just before the end of the year, Toyota teased everyone with a snapshot of the next-generation Camry and while the Internet broke out in excitement, I was distracted trying to understand the point of the Mannequin Challenge…  Seriously, why did this thing catch on?! I digress, according to Digital Trends, the next-generation Camry is a sleek & sporty departure from Camry’s-past:

While the teaser only shows a sliver of the car,

we can see cues like thin LED taillights, a trunk-mounted spoiler, strong and swooping character lines, fake rear air vents, and large wheels

Styling aside, the new Camry will ride on the same modular platform that underpins the Prius – which is great news, considering that chassis is one of the best parts of the Prius – and will use both 2.5-liter four-cylinder and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. There are also rumors of a 3.5-liter, V6-powered TRD Camry to rival Ford’s Fusion Sport. The Camry line-p will be rounded out by a hybrid version due in 2018.

You Ask, I Answer: First Time Car Buyer

You Ask

One of my favorite parts about writing this blog is the daily interaction I am able to have with readers like you.  Recently, I’ve received a lot of e-mails with questions–some of you want to know where I bought the sweater I’m wearing in a certain video while others have questions about Service Department specials…  A few days ago, I received an e-mail from someone and I want to share a portion of it, along with my answer, for you.  **If you have questions, feel free to e-mail me at christina.oaklawntoyota@gmail.com.  I LOVE hearing from you!**

Excerpt from Mrs. H.:

…my daughter is about to turn 18.  She’s a senior in high school and she’s working two jobs and maintaining her 3.7 GPA.  (Had to brag because I’m proud.) I want to help her find a safe, reliable, and good-looking car.  I’m going to pay for half of it.  Where do I start?  Do you have any tips for me?  What should we pay?  I’m trying to figure this out and I’m overwhelmed.  Do you have any advice for me?

Continue reading for my response to Mrs. H.!

Cars.com 2015 American-Made Index

Toyota takes the top slots!

From Cars.com:

Cars with at least 75 percent domestic content are becoming an endangered species, and for the first time in the American-Made Index’s nine-year history, the list has fewer than 10 cars.  Cars.com’s American-Made Index recognizes cars that are built here, have a high percentage of domestic parts and are bought in large numbers by American consumers.

Warning: This is NOT Real

For those of you not familiar with the website The Onion— it’s a fake news media online publication that generates silly/funny (sometimes crass) “news” stories.  I recently came across this one and had to share it with you all.  For the record, we think if your 1993 Toyota Camry is still running, there’s no need to get rid of it.

Just to reiterate, this is news satire and this story is NOT true.

From The Onion: “Saying it was simply time for drivers to move on, Toyota Motor Corp. issued a recall of its entire 1993 Camry model line Wednesday due to the fact that its owners really should have bought something new by now…”  To continue reading Toyota Recalls 1993 Camry Due To Fact That Owners Really Should Have Bought Something New By Now, click here!
