A car is a big investment and when the day comes to trade it in you’ll want to get the most money you can for it. In addition to watching your mileage, following a few simple steps can help you keep your car looking good inside and out for years to come. Anderson Toyota offers this advice to help you maintain your car’s value.
Following the recommended maintenance schedule for your car can extend your vehicle’s life considerably. Maintenance includes oil changes and replacing filters and belts. It also entails tire maintenance, alignments, and cooling system checks. Be sure to keep good records of your car’s maintenance because it will help you boost the resale value.
PROTECT THE PAINT
Washing your car regularly helps it look nice but it also helps prolong the life of your paint. When you drive, your car picks up dirt, sand, road salt and other elements. When these things build up they can dull and chip the paint on your car. Regular car washes help prevent this from happening. Also, park in the shade whenever possible because direct sunlight can damage your paint as well.
KEEP IT CLEAN INSIDE
Maintaining the interior of your car is equally as important. Clean your car mats and vacuum regularly to keep dirt from building up. Avoid eating and drinking in your car to prevent spills and stains. Also, avoid smoking in your car to avoid burns and the smell of cigarettes or cigars, which can negatively affect your trade-in value.

Automobile Magazine just named the 2013 Scion FR S as one of their 2013 ALL STARS. This high performance sports car is the fifth model to join the Scion family. Inspired by the Toyota AE86, FR-S is designed around the core goal of achieving “Pure Balance”. This balance begins with the use of the world’s only front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration using a flat boxer engine. The fierce exterior of the FR-S is a solid reflection of its inner power. The profile, inspired by the Toyota 2000GT, reveals a hood and roof-line that is remarkably sleek and low, giving it an aerodynamic shape that channels air cleanly over to the top. The low stance continues to exaggerate the coupe’s menacing face, which is made up of sharp lines, a wide mouth and angular headlights.
The FR S was also named the #1 Most Affordable Sports Car last month by U.S. News. We’re going to have to get a trophy case pretty soon if this keeps up. Anderson Toyota Scion is proud to have such a WINNER in our lineup!
The family of Matthew DeBroux joined us today to remember their son. Matt worked for the Anderson Automotive Group for seven years, from 2004 to 2011, and was the Detail Manager here at Anderson Toyota & Lexus of Rockford. A happy, hard-working young man with a great personality that, on January 22nd 2011, suffered a sudden cardiac arrest while at work.
Matt’s family – father Dave, stepmother Candy, and stepsister Stacy Bartholomew – were here to dedicate their donation of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) in his memory. They were joined by Lieutenant Robert Vertiz, EMS Coordinator with the Rockford Fire Department, who discussed the importance of AEDs in the workplace and the training of employees in CPR and the use of the device.
Dave DeBroux explained that when he heard that Anderson Toyota & Lexus of Rockford were moving to a new and larger location that “a light bulb went on” and they decided to donate the defibrillator so it would become a part of the new dealership. The AED now hangs, centrally located, on one of our Service Department walls beside a picture of Matt and a plaque that reads:
In memory of our friend and colleague
Sept. 22, 1982 – Jan. 22, 2011
