When we get behind the wheel of our car, we have more responsibility and more to be worried about then we really think about on a daily basis. It is easy to take for granted that we drive to and from work or where ever we go each day and we get there safely. It is likely that you enjoy the comforts of your car and you probably appreciate everything that makes your car so enjoyable. When we become so comfortable in our own car, it also becomes easy to forget how dangerous even a simple drive across town can become.
For this very reason, we should consider the “unseen” conveniences of our cars to be the most important. How reliable and how safe our cars are are ultimately the factors that are the most important. Toyota is consistently expanding their capabilities when it comes to safety and new technology that drives this segment of their brand. Take a look at what is in store for new Toyota Cars in Saint Louis for the upcoming model year!
Safety Connect is the latest safety convenience being integrated in Toyota cars. Here is a little about what to expect with this exciting new feature:
- Emergency Assistance: With the push of a button, you can get 24/7 emergency assistance from a trained dispatcher who will get you the help you need in a moments notice.
- Stolen Vehicle Locator: Not only does this system create a fast responsive approach to a potential theft of your vehicle, but more importantly, it provides enhancements to safety that deter theft from ever happening to begin with! In the event that your vehicle is stolen, GPS technology can be used to locate it quickly and efficiently.
- Roadside Assistance: The 24/7 Safety Connect® 7 response center is available for roadside assistance via the SOS button.
- Automatic Collision Notification: “In case of an airbag deployment or a severe rear-end collision, the response center will automatically be notified. The 24/7 response center agent will attempt to speak with the vehicle’s occupants and will notify local emergency services of the situation, requesting dispatch of emergency services to the vehicle’s location.”
