fourth annual test drives for autism

The Naperville Test Track is a perfect place for the Test Drives for Autism event to happen.

Test Drives for Autism

It’s the beginning of another April here at Toyota of Naperville, and that means it’s time to kickoff the fourth annual Test Drives for Autism campaign. The goal is to raise $130,000 for Turning Pointe Autism Foundation. Starting today and running through the end of the month, for every person (one donation per household) that test drives any vehicle in the Toyota of Naperville inventory, Toyota of Naperville will donate $20 to Turning Pointe Autism Foundation. Certainly, you must be thinking there is some kind of catch. There is none. It doesn’t matter if you choose to take out a brand new 2014 Toyota Camry with the sport package with the V-6 engine or the 2001 Camry we have in our pre-owned inventory; both will get this deserving outfit one step closer to our goal.

how to have a good test drive

Simply jumping into a car and burning rubber is not a good way to have a good test drive.

How to have a good test drive
