Being called a master of your profession is one of the top honors anyone can receive at the workplace. That has become a reality for four members of the Toyota of Naperville Service Department. Jim Thompson, Jeff Hilb, John Bryant and Ryan Ingold have all reached Toyota Master Diagnostic Technician status. This is the highest level these hugely important members of the service team can reach through programs offered by Toyota. The four new Master Techs have had to work very hard to reach this level of expertise and everyone at Toyota of Naperville would like to congratulate them for their new achievement.

2015 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2016 Fiat 500X
We love the 2015 Toyota RAV4 available at Toyota of Naperville. Everything about the vehicle makes owning it awesome. We have gone on and on about how this compact crossover SUV has just the right proportions to serve as a more-than-adequate people-mover or very capable compact cargo-hauler. Excellence on this level is going to attract the attention of the rest of the industry. In keeping with that idea, we are taking a quick look at the 2015 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2016 Fiat 500X. This is the latter’s first attempt at a crossover SUV. At first blush, we are proud to say that we are still more than confident placing our bets on the RAV4. Read the rest of this entry »

Toyota Safety Sense
One of the hallmarks of a successful automobile company is its ability to build a family of vehicles that will protect its occupants if they are involved in a crash. Simply building crash proof cars isn’t enough anymore. Toyota has begun rolling out a system that takes the next step to prevent crashes from happening in the first place. The new safety suite is being called Toyota Safety Sense. This new technology is so important that when Toyota was unveiling the new 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid last week, the Toyota presenter mented Toyota Safety Sense first.

The exterior has been refreshed, the taillights have been redesigned and there has been several upgrades to the interior of the new RAV4 including new colors and a greater abundance of soft-touch materials.
