When it comes to proper maintenance of your car, there’s the typical stuff you hear all the time. Most of it involves fluids: changing your oil, changing your coolant, changing your transmission fluid. On the hardware side, replacing fuel filters, windshield wipers and checking your tire pressure are all important maintenance habits.
But there are several less-obvious things you can do to make sure your car stays running smoothly:
Use your parking brake on hills If you depend on your transmission to keep your car in place on a hill — by putting it in park — you are putting a lot of pressure on a tiny pin called a parking pawl. Add years to the life of your transmission, and use the parking brake on hills.
Change the differential fluid About every 60K miles, you will want to have a mechanic change the differential fluid. Like the transmission, the differential is extremely important to the forward motion of your car and expensive to replace.
Make a complete stop before shifting It’s easy to get lazy when you’re backing out of a spot and want to get going, but shifting into drive before your car is ready is a sure way to cook your transmission—not right away, but over time. Bring your car to a full stop and then shift. A transmission is a terrible thing to waste.

Toyota has finally produced a Scion that is certain to be embraced by sport compact enthusiasts. As Motor Trend reports, the Scion FR-S, which is being showcased at the New York Auto Show, is poised to re-ignite enthusiasts’ passion for the brand.
The FR-S was modeled in part after the popular AE86 Toyota Corolla. As a continuation of the Toyota Subaru collaborations, the FR-S sports a Subaru-sourced 2.0-liter boxer engine – the underpinnings of which were co-developed with the company. The engine has been updated with port and direct fuel injection, which Toyota is calling DS-4. Although official power figures have not been released, the engine could produce as much as 200 horsepower.
The concept features an aggressive body kit, 20-inch wheels (8.5 inches wide in the front and a massive 10.5 inches wide in the rear), and motorcycle-style 18-inch annular carbon ceramic Matrix rotors. With its hot new design and promising performance components, we hope the Scion FR-S is just the first in a string of very intriguing products.
We’ve got an excellent selection of pre-owned Scion vehicles with special sale prices at Gresham Toyota. All three models of the innovative Scion are represented in our inventory. Come take one out for a test drive!
