Signs That It’s Time To Tell Your Car To Shove It - Toyota Parts Blog

Junk YardWe can sometimes get really attached to a vehicle.  This is especially true if you own a Toyota.

But sometimes, you have to learn to say goodbye to a car.  If you’re experiencing any of these issues with your car, considering telling your car to “shove it.”

  • Repairs Cost More Than Car Is Worth: If it’s costing you tons of money to repair your vehicle, it may be time to say goodbye to your old car or truck.
  • Don’t Feel Safe In The Car: Does it feel like your car’s wheels are going to fall off while driving it?  Are you afraid of going on long trips because you may get stranded on the side of the road? If you answered, “yes” to both of these, it’s time for a new car.
  • You’re No Longer Comfortable Driving It: Is the A/C or the heating broken?  If this is the case, then it’s probably not too comfortable on warm and cold days.  You may want to consider a new car.
  • It Fails Emissions Tests: If your car is failing the emissions test every single year and you’re making tons of repairs, it may be time to look for a new car.
  • Too Small For Growing Family: Is your family growing?  If your growing family can no longer fit comfortably in your car, it may be time for an upgrade.
  • Costs Too Much To Fill It Up: If your car or truck is guzzling too much gas, you may consider trading it in for something that is more fuel-efficient.  Maybe consider getting a Toyota Prius.

To keep your Toyota on the road longer, be sure to use quality Toyota parts. This will help to ensure that you get the most out of your vehicle.
