It’s stressful being a mother, let alone a first-time mom. Just to get ready in the morning, many a sea must be navigated, many a territory must be chartered—and that’s not even taking into account the baby’s needs. This Mother’s Day, give that new mommy in your family something to help her stay sane. Here are 7 practical automotive items that every busy mother should have at her disposal when behind the wheel.
7.) Travel Diaper Changing Station
The SUV cargo area of a RAV4 can be a decent makeshift diaper-changing station, but who wants to reorganize the back just to clean up a poopy diaper? Designed by a busy mom for busy moms, the Beanko Diaper Changing System ensures you’re always ready for blowouts.
Why is it a good Mother’s Day gift? It hangs casually from the back of any seat headrest, features a handful of little storage pockets, and has a removable, washable changing pad. Once that tushy has been cleaned, simply roll the mat up and hit the road. Talk about convenience!
Did you know that April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month? (Don’t worry — not many people in St. Louis do.)
We shouldn’t need a dedicated month to publicly condemn distracted driving, yet data clearly shows that distracted driving is a growing epidemic, particularly among teenage drivers who are already prone to make mistakes on the road. Approximately 6 out of 10 teen car crashes are caused by a distracted driver. As a parent, these sobering stats may have you questioning whether to even buy your teen his first car.
For those worried parents, we suggest reviewing these tips with your teenager and be sure to take the pledge to remain distraction-free through April (and the other 11 months of the year).
After an agonizing 17-year hiatus, Toyota’s much-adored Supra sports car returned to center stage at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, bringing with it a “totally lit” verve and a head-turning appearance. Sleek, sophisticated, and shimmery, the fifth-generation Supra coupe appeals to its 1990’s crew of loyalists as much as new “what the heck is a Supra?” millennials, and everyone at our St. Louis car dealership couldn’t be happier to see its revival.
Enough teasing. Here’s all you need to know about the 2020 Toyota Supra, which is set to appear at our St. Peters Toyota dealership sometime this summer.
A Sports Car, Through & Through
Quick: Name Toyota’s bestselling vehicle.
If you said the RAV4, you’d be spot-on correct. Up nearly 6% in sales compared to last year, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 has once again clawed its way up Mount Crossover, beating both the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue to the peak. Completely redesigned and full of the hippest tech in the market, Toyota’s top SUV leaves no question as to why Americans continue to buy the RAV4. It just checks all those checkbox boxes—and then some.
