Why Toyota is the Best Car Brand

Why should you choose Toyota for your next car?

I’ve noticed that each brand of cars has been stepping up its game each year with new technology, but Toyota remains the best. Toyota cars are the best selling cars in the world. They constantly make the top best 10 cars brands list. Kelley Blue Book, a company that ranks the best cars, ranks the Toyota brand the highest in resale value. “It’s simple,” says KBB, “just make a quality vehicle that improves people’s lives, give it an affordable price, and make sure the vehicle is the most comfortable, reliable, and enjoyable vehicle in its class.”  Toyota does just that in plenty of its offerings and it shows with KBB’s prestigious Best Brand Awards for many of Toyota’s products.

According to Customer’s Report, Toyota builds solid, efficient, and reliable cars. Also, according to a study done by R.L. Polk & Company, 80% of Toyota cars sold 20 years ago are still on the road. Normally, cars with good maintenance last about 200,000 miles,  but a Toyota Highlander with good maintenance can last about 300,000 miles or more. I have an old 2006 Highlander hybrid, and that cars drives like new with no problems at all! With 20 dollars I can fill my tank up and that lasts me about two weeks, even though I drive a lot.  I also have 2017 Nissan Rogue, and although it’s a very nice car I’m always filling my tank every three days. Even though it’s all wheel drive, I still get stuck in the snow, but not with my AWD 2006 Highlander! Toyota’s go through the snow like it’s nothing, so they are a great car to have if you live in Minnesota. For those reasons, I think Toyota is the best car brand and you should seriously consider buying one for your next car.
