Getting into a car accident is always a difficult situation, especially here in Dixon, but Toyota has developed an app feature to help Toyota owners like you get through the post-collision process as smoothly as possible. Called Collision Assistance, the feature is available via the Toyota mobile app and gives owners step-by-step instructions.
Available In The Toyota App
“Safety for our customers is paramount. The minutes following an accident can be critical — drivers are often confused and uncertain about what to do. By incorporating Collision Assistance into our owner app, we can offer help when it is needed,” said Steve Basra, Toyota Motor North America, Connected Technologies group vice president.
One of the perks of this new feature is that because it works through the Toyota app, it already comes pre-populated with relevant vehicle information you would want to have on hand when dealing with the aftermath of a collision, such as your car’s VIN number or model year.
After a wreck, Collision Assistance will urge you to move to a safe location and call 911 for emergency help, as well as advise you not to admit fault to anyone. The app will then guide you through the process of documenting the accident, including vehicle damage, and notifying your insurance company so you can get the claims process started right away. It can also help you find a repair shop where you may restore your Toyota back to its prior condition.
While recovering from a collision, it can be difficult to keep your head straight and remember what to do. Thanks to Toyota’s Collision Assistance feature, your problems just got a little easier to handle.
Of course, it’d be even better to avoid getting into an accident in the first place. Visit Ken Nelson Toyota in Dixon, Illinois, to take a look at the latest Toyota cars, trucks, and SUVs — all of which have automatic emergency braking as standard technology.
Many people consider their car an extension of their personality. One of the best things about buying a new car is choosing a color that matches you. The Toyota lineup is packed with a brilliant array of hues so you can find the right shade to match your individuality. These Toyota colors are our favorite from the ones available this year on the 2021 Toyota lineup.
This blue hue has a dark, smoky look. You can find it on new Toyota models like the Corolla, RAV4, and the Highlander. In the bright sun, this color can look almost black and sparkles in the light.
This color is for anyone who likes to stand out in a crowd. This bold red pops wherever it’s parked. You can find it on models like the Toyota Prius and the Toyota Mirai.
If you prefer more subdued tones on your car, the Lunar Rock shade is an intriguing melding of blue, green, and gray colors. It is available on the more rugged Toyota models including the RAV4, 4Runner, and Tundra.
We love this unique shade of brown, especially when worn by the rugged Toyota Tundra. We think it evokes a sense of rugged adventure that’s perfect for living in Dixon, Illinois.
This dark green hue is something you won’t find on many other vehicles on the market. This uncommon color is available on the Toyota Sienna and will keep you and your family riding in style.
Did you know that Toyota has a handy smartphone app that lets you perform basic functionalities on your vehicle from the palm of your hand? We at Ken Nelson Toyota highly suggest that you download the Toyota app; here are some reasons why.
Monitor your vehicle’s health
It’s not easy to stay up-to-date with the health of your vehicle when you’re juggling a busy career and an even busier family. The Toyota app lets you check your Toyota’s health by alerting you to possible recalls, service campaigns, and maintenance needs. The app can even tell you if your key fob battery is low or if an oil change is needed.
Remote control functions
Your phone can serve as a remote control for your vehicle when you sign up for Toyota Remote Connect through the app. This service allows you to lock and unlock the doors, start and stop the engine, and locate your car in a crowded parking lot.
Pay your bills
If you financed your vehicle through Toyota when you did business here at Ken Nelson Toyota, you can make payments on your lease or loan through the Toyota app. Check out the current balance on your loan and see when your next payment is due.
