Why attend an Auto Show

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, the local Auto Show should be your first stop. And here’s why:

  • Get an overview what’s the new in the industry-from safety to style.
  • Shop brands efficiently and effectively without the pressure of sales people.
  • Have some fun. I test drove a stick shift convertible just because.
  • Sit in all types of vehicles. Try on that convertible, slide into the luxury SUV.
  • Find a new car crush. A totally out-of-your-league dream. That’s until you win the lotto the same day as the kids get full-ride scholarships.

What’s New at Toyota

While I’m exploring the DFW Auto Show Toyota will find its way to the top of my must see list. Since I’ve driven a Toyota for over 20 years, it’s proven its value and reliability to me.

Toyota’s roots are in Texas. With a new Toyota headquarters in Dallas/Fort Worth, the design team isn’t far from one of its assembly plants. Toyota trucks are manufactured just south of San Antonio.

Discover the Ride

New for the 2019 DFW Auto Show, grab a helmet and a Zero Motorcycle for a spin around its indoor training track. The industry’s leader in breaking down the barriers to entry for motorcycle ownership, this event requires no experience.

Starting with a Yamaha Power Assisted Bicycles, get the feel. Then move up to a Zero Motorcycle with quick yet thorough instruction. Within minutes, find yourself riding into curves and working the throttle.

End result, big smiles and the desire to move up. Never too late to find a new ride to love and the Discover the Ride boasts over 50% of new femaleriders.
