The second annual Women in Automotive Conference kicks off in…
This week, we’re meeting Greg Thome, Regional Communications Manager at Toyota Motor Sales. Based in the sunny OC, Greg spends quite a bit of time commuting during the workweek but a “Frozen” pal keeps him company. Let’s learn about Greg’s driving style:
How I Drive | Greg Thome
Location: Orange County, CA
Daily Driver: Silver Sky Metallic 2015 Highlander Limited
Time Spent Driving/day: 2.5 hours
Road Most Traveled: I-405 from OC to South Bay
Driving Style in One Word: Calculated
In-Car Must-Haves: I use all of my options daily:
- Sirius XM
Color-coded traffic on the Nav helps me with my options in the LA traffic, especially seeing accidents before getting stuck in a mess.
Driving Tunes: I like to bounce around a lot between XM news and sports, 70s and 80s rock, and my favorite Podcasts (Rich Eisen, Dennis Miller, Adam Carolla).
Time-saving technique: I can do a lot hands free, including calling into late conference calls. Real-time traffic and automatic route changes helps me choose which of my options are best for that particular day. Believe it or not, the dynamic cruise control is a help in LA traffic.
Hanging from rear view: I had Green Bay Packers fuzzy dice for a long time, but eventually the string broke. He’s not hanging from the mirror, but my daughters recently added a hula-dancing Olaf on top of the dash.
