Toyota Sales Establish Company as World’s Most Popular Automaker

Another year has come and gone; another year has passed with Toyota as the world’s leading automaker.

That’s right, with both Volkswagen and General Motors in its wake, Toyota sold more vehicles than any other company in the world during 2015. As of the end of November alone, Toyota was 200,000 units ahead of Volkswagen.

From January to November of 2015, Toyota reported selling nearly 9.3 million vehicles across the globe, a truly astonishing figure. Volkswagen reported selling about 9.3 million vehicles, while GM reported about 8.8 million.

Overall, the automotive industry sold slightly less this year than last, with even Toyota reporting about a 1.9% decrease, mirrored by Volkswagen and GM. However, we have seriously high hopes for 2016, with all the incoming models Toyota has prepared.

Make a Change With These New Year’s Resolutions for Your Car

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Car

Every year, we tend to make the same New Year’s resolutions: lose weight, read more, etc. So this year, why not switch it up – and do something nice for your car?

Here are a few New Year’s resolutions for your car to inspire:

  • Purchase a quality tire pressure gauge, memorize the ideal tire pressure for your tires, and regularly inspect your tires/inflate them as necessary.
  • Keep your car clean this year – both inside and out – by keeping a written “car cleaning” log in the glove compartment.
  • This year, don’t idle your car when the weather is cold to “warm it up.” This wastes gasoline, damages your vehicle, and isn’t necessary.
  • Get all of your oil changes on time, and keep a sharp eye on other fluids, such as coolant and antifreeze, as well.
  • Lastly – be safe, and stop texting and driving once and for all.
