Toyota Avensis, Corolla and Yaris: Takata recall expanded

Toyota has expanded its Takata recall for the 2001-03 Avensis, 2001-07 Corolla, and 2006-11 Yaris Sedan. As with all Takata-related recalls, airbags in the affected vehicles are fitted with propellant that could degrade when exposed to heat and humidity. If one of those cars is in an accident where the airbags are deployed, the metal inflator housing could explode under too much internal pressure sending shrapnel shooting into the cabin...

Toyota GA-B platform unveiled, likely to underpin new Yaris

Toyota has unveiled its new GA-B platform, the latest to be spun off from the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). GA-B will be used for vehicles smaller than those current residing on the existing GA-C platform, such as the C-HR, Corolla, and Prius.

2019 Toyota Yaris recalled

Toyota has recalled the 2019 Yaris over concerns about the left-rear window glass. According to the company, the glass may have been inadequately tempered because of an improper cooling process during manufacture. If the glass is broken it won't shatter into small pieces, instead breaking into large fragments, increasing occupants' risk of injury in an accident...

2014-16 Toyota Rukus, Yaris Sedan added to Takata recall

Toyota has added the 2014-2016 Rukus and Yaris Sedan to the ever-expanding Takata recall. As with all other Takata-related recalls, the inflators in affected vehicles can degrade due to a combination of heat and humidity. If a vehicle with an affected inflator is included in an accident, the inflator's metal housing can rupture, sending metal fragments shooting into the cabin...
