If you have been refused credit or have a ‘bad credit history’ our finance specialist can help. We recognise that due to external factors many customers at some point may have been unable to make a repayment which may have negatively affected their credit, and in-turn affected their ability to get credit. 

We work with lenders who take a more personal approach by analysing your current situation and repayment ability rather than what a computer tells them. This ensures we understand what a customer can realistically afford before we lend to them, be that commercial or consumer finance.

At Crossings Toyota we also offer ‘Flex PCP Finance.’ This allows you to enjoy the security of real guarantees and say goodbye to the uncertainties you’ve come to expect from traditional methods of car ownership. With Toyota Flex from Crossings Toyota we can tailor a repayment package for you, starting with a deposit as low as 7% of the On the Road price.

Tips for Driving in Freezing Conditions

How to stay safe on the roads in Ice and Snow.
Snow and Ice create adverse driving conditions. Here are our tips for getting you though the cold spell safely.

EXTRA TIME: Give yourself plenty of extra time if you do have to drive in wintery conditions. You will need to defrost your vehicle and clear off any excess snow. The roads are also going to be in bad contition, so you will have to drive slowly in a low gear. 

TYRES:  Check your tyres. Tyre thread debth is essential to road safety. Make sure your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure and that your tyre thread depth is sufficient. Replace them if the tread depth falls below 3mm. Don't forget to check your spare tyre!

VISABILITY: Make sure all your windows and mirrors are clear before you set out.  De-icer and a scraper  are your best friends in cold weather. Use warm water (not hot as it can crack your windshield) to aid defrosting. Check your wiper blades. These need to be replaced every 6 months-1 year. Top up your screenwash-this will help to prevent the water from freezing.

LIGHTS:  Make sure all your lights are in good working order. Visability can be greatly diminished in snowy conditions and it is essential that you can be seen on the roads by other drivers. Remember to clear the snow from your lights as well as your windows and mirrors.

LOW GEARS: Manoeuvre gently, slow down and leave extra distance between you and the vehicle in front. Too much steering is bad and avoid harsh braking and acceleration. Use the highest gear possible to avoid wheel spin. Select a low gear when travelling downhill especially if through bends.When you slow down, use your brakes so that the brake lights warn drivers behind you.

BLACK ICE: Learn and watch out for the signs of black ice.If the road looks polished or glossy it could be black ice.This is one of winter's worst hazards:  It is nearly transparent and can be difficult to spot.  Often it just looks like a harmless puddle, especially in sheltered or shaded areas on the roads, under trees and adjacent to high walls. Drive slowly and use additional caution if you think you have spotted it.

 

KEEP AN EMERGENCY KIT IN THE BOOT!!

You just never know when you might be in need of some of these items. During extream weather events it makes sense to pack your car for all eventualities. It is recommended you have these items to hand, you never know when you might just need them:

  • Blanket/Additional Clothing 
  • Warm Winter Boots
  • Food & Water
  • High Visibility Vest
  • Tow rope
  • Spare bulbs
  • Spare fuel
  •  Shovel
  • Hazard warning triangle
  • Spare wheel/Puncture Repair Kit
  • De-icing equipment 
  • First aid kit 
  • Torch

 

STAY AT HOME: DON'T MAKE UNNECESSARY JOURNEYS!

Listen to the weather reports. If you are told to stay of the roads then do so. This leaves the emergency services free to deal with real emergencies.

Stay Safe-Crossings

Toyota Prius receives What Car? Best Car Safety Award for 2017

“Toyota’s new Prius performed very well in Euro NCAP crash tests and has an innovative reverse AEB system.”

Having looked at all passenger cars available right now, the judges gave the win to the Toyota Prius  — helped by a consistently high score in all of the areas Euro NCAP tests, as well as some truly innovative safety technology.

The Prius’s reverse AEB system is what tipped the scores in Toyota’s favour, as it could not only save you money, but potentially lives as well.

The fact that you can now drive one of the safest cars around for less than €250 a month only sweetens the deal.

THE PRIUS HAS the highest overall Euro NCAP score of any car tested in 2016, which is a great start.

The judges were particularly impressed with the Prius’s reverse AEB system, which comes as standard on most models. The system can detect objects — whether that be pedestrians or other cars — behind the Prius. This helps when reversing out of a tight parking space, and could stop accidents, because a quarter of all crashes in the UK involve reversing. When Euro NCAP tested the car, they awarded this AEB system maximum points.

The Prius is also best of the finalists for pedestrian protection, with the front bumper scoring top marks.

Like the other two finalists, the Prius also comes with lane keeping assistance, which falls under the umbrella of Toyota’s Safety Shield. Not only can it warn you if the car strays out of line, it can also provide steering inputs if you fail to react.

The Prius gets road sign recognition, which displays the current speed limit to the driver, and issues a warning sound if you stray above the limit. Every Prius also comes with adaptive cruise control and automatic high beam assistance.

The panel said the fact that so much safety technology is being fitted across the Prius range means buyers are getting real value for money.
