Why you should buy a Honda Acty

Hello folks. Lets take a dive into why you should buy a Honda Acty.

First we say its always a good idea to thoroughly research and consider all of your options before buying a mini truck. There are many factors to consider when choosing a truck, including the make and model, the price, the features and capabilities of the vehicle, and the reputation of the manufacturer. From our experience all the models from Japan are good vehicles. But lets look at the Honda Acty. Honda is a well-respected and established manufacturer with a reputation for producing high-quality and reliable vehicles. The Honda Acty is a small, fuel-efficient vehicle that may be a good choice for people who are looking for an affordable and practical car for city driving or light hauling. It is important to carefully consider your specific needs and preferences when choosing a mini truck, and to read reviews and do your own research to make an informed decision.

There are several reasons why a customer might consider purchasing a Honda Acty. Some potential benefits of the Honda Acty include:

  1. Fuel efficiency: The Honda Acty is a small and lightweight vehicle, which makes it highly fuel efficient. This can be a major advantage for people who are looking to save money on gas and reduce their carbon footprint.

  5. Customization: The Honda Acty is available in a range of different body styles, including a standard van, a pickup truck, and a minibus. This allows customers to choose the configuration that best meets their needs.

  6. Comfort: Despite its small size, the Honda Acty is surprisingly comfortable and spacious inside. It has a high roof and large windows, which help to create a feeling of openness and airiness. The seats are also fairly comfortable, making it a good choice for longer trips.

  7. Performance: The Honda Acty is powered by a small, fuel-efficient engine that provides good acceleration and handling for a vehicle of its size. It is not designed for high-speed driving or off-road use, but it performs well in urban and suburban environments.

  8. Maintenance: The Honda Acty is generally easy to maintain, with straightforward mechanical systems and readily available parts. This can help to keep ownership costs low over the long term.

Hello, Hello, Hello,

This is Tony from Toota Auto Group. We made it through another month in business. We are down to 2 vehicles in our stock pile until the new shipment comes in. We currently have a Suzuki Carry and a Honda Acty. I just took the Suzuki Carry to get gas and its a good ride. Suzuki has always made the type of vehicles where you feel like you are in command. The Suzuki Carry is no different. I had to used the 4wd today because here in NJ we still have some snow from the storm we had last week that left about a foot of snow on the ground. The 4wd works excellent. I tried the 4 hi and the 4lo. They both work really well. We have some customers coming in today. One customer has to pick up some paperwork and he may bring a friend to buy our last Honda Acty. Only time will tell.

Until next time, we will see you soon. Hopefully our customer likes the Honda Acty and takes it home with him. That's always good for business.

Thank again

Suzuki Carry

Hello hello hello,

We are back with another blog on our most recent updates with Toota Auto Group. The backstory behind this one is pretty unique. We bought a 1996 Suzuki Carry from Japan. We imported it as we do all our other vehicles. This vehicle just so happened to have some special issues attached:

Issue number one. It had to be cleaned at the port. Now when I say cleaned we aren't talking let's drive down the street and find a car wash. No No No, we are talking the vehicle had seeds in or around it that had to be removed at the port under Customs and Border Patrol supervision. That cost a lot of money. We took care of that issue.

Issue number two. The port lost our key to the vehicle. Not only was the vehicle tied up at the port for numerous days, when our driver finally went to pick it up, the key was missing. He had to have a forklift put it on the trailer for him. Then the steering column was locked. With a locked steering column and a missing key we managed to unload it off the trailer once he got it back to the dealership. The next part of the story is we had to take it to a locksmith and hope they could make a key. So now we are at the dealership with the Suzuki and a locked steering column that needs to be reloaded onto a different trailer. So we finally worked our magic and loaded the Suzuki onto the trailer and transported it to the lock smith. Now we hope and see if he could make a key.

Success!! We got a phone call and the locksmith had 2 of the key blanks required and made us a two keys. Thank you Atlantic Lock and Safe in Bradley Beach. They did a fantastic job and the keys worked flawless.

Its all part of business. You have some smooth days and you have some rough days. This was part of the rougher days that we had. A car dealership without a key to one of their cars is a problem. However its all how you handle it. Until our next update, take care and Happy Holidays!!

Toota Auto Group - Best Midsize Sedans

Please Read Toota Auto Group - Best Midsize Sedans

Content provided by MotorTrend

MotorTrend tests more than 200 vehicles at the track every year. We rate cars using the same factors you do, including how they drive, interior space, efficiency, tech, value, and safety. Ratings are only applicable within each respective segment.

  1. 2022 Honda Accord - 9.1/10 - After a midcycle refresh for 2021, we're not expecting any major changes to the Accord for 2022. Barring any significant revisions, it will carry forward with two gas engines and a hybrid option. The Accord competes with other affordable four-doors including the Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry, Kia K5, and Subaru Legacy.

  2. 2022 Subaru Legacy - 8.6/10 - Subaru knows its buyers and delivers on their priorities with the Legacy. The midsize sedan offers a compelling blend of technology, safety, and performance in a roomy and comfortable vessel. Middling style and a vexing CVT are the Legacy's greatest Achilles heels.

  3. 2022 Hyundai Sonata - 8.5/10 - Hyundai has been selling the Sonata here in the U.S. for more than 30 years, and the current eighth generation is the best version yet. Redesigned for the 2020 model year, the Hyundai Sonata is among the better midsize sedans on the market. It's mechanically related to the Kia K5.

  4. 2022 Kia K5 - 8.3/10 - The midsize sedan once known as the Kia Optima has transformed into the K5. Introduced for 2021, the K5 stands out in the segment with evocative exterior styling. Yet despite those looks it remains a relatively normal car in terms of features and capabilities. The K5 is offered with a choice of turbocharged engines and available AWD. Like the Optima before it, the K5 targets sedan stalwarts like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and mechanically related Hyundai Sonata. The K5 is built in West Point, Georgia, alongside the Kia Telluride.

  5. 2022 Toyota Camry - 8/10 - Although it's no longer Toyota's best-selling model (that title now goes to the RAV4), the venerable Camry remains a go-to choice for those seeking a dependable midsize sedan. The current-gen Camry was introduced for the 2018 model year and sees a mild face-lift for 2021. The Camry sits squarely in the center of Toyota's lineup of sedans between the compact Corolla and full-size Avalon. Besides its longtime rival, the Honda Accord, the Camry also competes with midsize four-doors including the Subaru Legacy, Nissan Altima, and Hyundai Sonata.

  6. 2021 Nissan Altima - 7.7/10 - Positioned above the compact Sentra and below the full-size Maxima, the Altima is the middle child of Nissan's sedan lineup. Nissan issued a full redesign of the Altima for the 2019 model year, and the family sedan has been relatively unchanged since. The Altima competes in the midsize sedan segment alongside cars such as the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry, and Subaru Legacy.

  7. 2022 Volkswagen Passat - 7.1/10 - Once one of Volkswagen's most successful cars in the United States, the Passat enters its final year of production with a Limited Edition trim. It rides on the platform that's been on sale in the United States since 2012, the same year it won our MotorTrend Car of the Year award. The Passat last received a major refresh in 2020. Although this midsize sedan no longer feels like a fresh offering, it comes with the traditional advantages of its segment, namely a comfortable ride, a large trunk, and spacious interior.

  8. 2021 Chevrolet Malibu - One of the longest-running nameplates in the Chevrolet lineup, the Malibu has been a mainstay in the midsize sedan segment for decades. Since its inception, the Malibu has evolved from a rear-drive car that's available in multiple flavors to a front-drive model offered only one body style. Chevrolet even offered a hybrid Malibu for a short time to lure eco-minded consumers to the brand. With only a short time left before it's discontinued, the Malibu lineup has been streamlined. A number of cosmetic packages are also offered.

  9. 2021 Mazda Mazda6 - As we wait for the rumored RWD, inline-six-powered, next-gen 6, Mazda adds some polish to its midsize sedan for 2021. The current-generation model debuted for the 2014 model year and saw a mid-cycle facelift for 2018, adding a turbocharged engine option. The 2021 Mazda 6 competes with other affordable midsize sedans including the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Sonata.
