Toyota North America is the first automaker to announce the exact models of the expanded Takata airbag recall.

The latest list includes an estimated 601,300 units of various 2009-2013 Lexus, Scion, and Toyota cars, whose defective inflators may rupture when the airbag deploys, thus increasing the risk of injury and even death.

New additions are the 2009, 2010, and 2013 Scion xB, Toyota Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Lexus IS 250/350, and IS-F, 2009 and 2010 Toyota Yaris, and Lexus ES350, 2010 and 2013 Lexus IS 350C/350C, GX460, and Toyota Sienna, and 2010 and 2013 Toyota 4Runner.

Owners of these vehicles will be notified by March via first class mail, and dealers will replace either the front passenger airbag inflator or the entire assembly, depending on each case, free of charge.

Other automakers, such as Audi, BMW, Daimler Vans, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Subaru and Tesla still have to announce the exact models added to the ever-growing Takata recall recently, but they’re expected to do so by the end of January.

2009 – 2010 and 2013 Model Year Scion xB
2009 – 2010 and 2013 Model Year Toyota Corolla
2009 – 2010 and 2013 Model Year Toyota Corolla Matrix
2009 – 2010 Model Year Toyota Yaris
2010 and 2013 Model Year Toyota 4Runner
2013 Model Year Toyota Sienna
2009 – 2010 and 2013 Model Year Lexus IS250/350
2010 and 2013 Model Year Lexus IS250C/350C

Japanese Brands Own List Of Cars U.S. Owners Keep For Over 15 Years 13

Toyota owners have quite the attachment to their cars, especially those who have a Highlander, as a new survey conducted by iSeeCars showed the Japanese SUV top the list of vehicles owners keep for 15 years or more.

The research firm looked at 650,000 vehicles between the 1981 and 2002 model years sold in 2017 and Toyota flooded the list. In fact, the top five vehicles kept for 15 years or more are all Toyotas, namely the Highlander, Sienna, Tundra, Prius and RAV4, with the Honda Odyssey following at sixth place.

Each of the cars listed was at least 1.6 times more likely to be kept by the original owner for 15 years or more, but the Highlander outpaced the average even further. Highlander owners were 2.7 times more likely to keep their vehicles, with 18.3 percent of original owners hanging on to them. The Sienna followed closely behind and was 2.5 times more likely to stick around in the driveway for at least 15 years, with 17.1 percent of owners holding onto the minivan for 15 years or more.

The entire list is populated solely by Japanese automakers, save for the Volkswagen Golf at the final, 15th spot, with 10.6 percent of original owners hanging on to their Golfs for at least 15 years.

“While a decade on the road used to be a significant milestone for vehicle life expectancy, the elevated quality of cars being produced has raised this standard to beyond ten years ,” said Phong Ly, CEO of iSeeCars.com. “Japanese automakers are known for setting quality and reliability standards, so it is no surprise that they are the most likely to reach the fifteen-year milestone.”



2018 Toyota Sienna Is A Soccer Mom’s Best Friend 6

If you’re considering purchasing a minivan and the updated Toyota Sienna isn’t already on your shortlist, this review might actually convince you to reconsider.

Sure, minivans have fallen victim to stereotypes and buyers nowadays more often than not go for an SUV, regardless if they actually need its off-road abilities or not. It’s all about perception, and an SUV screams “adventure”, which the minivan certainly doesn’t, but as Kelley Blue Book’s Micah Muzio points out, the latter is still king when it comes to practicality – and the 2018 Sienna certainly has its eyes on the throne.

For the 2018MY, Toyota redesigned the Sienna’s front end by adding a lower grille and larger fog lights. Of course, with these types of cars, it’s less about styling and more about features – which is where the Sienna excels. Not only can you add Wi-Fi and a premium JBL system, but you also get a new rear-seat entertainment system with streaming capability (only for Android devices, at least for now), 360-degree camera, 4.2″ multi-info display and a total of five USB ports, plus loads of other stuff.

In the end, Muzio found the 2018 Sienna to be not just extremely practical, but also surprisingly competent on the road.
