TOYOTA PRIUS Prius probed for engine stalls

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) June 1 2005 Federal regulators on Wednesday officially opened an investigation into the red-hot toyota prius responding to complaints alleging the cars hybrid engine cuts out in traffic.

I thought Id add another one since reading in Walter McManuss column that an injury lawyer is already fishing the prius stall cases. When my 1983 originally brown 4x4 S10 pickup was flat black and 11 years old with a couple of dents .... I was driving down the highway about 50 mph on black ice when the engine suddenly stalled locking the wheels I spun around a couple of times and went into the 3 feet

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA V Hesitating between a TDI Wagon and a Toyota Prius V

Good day all. 2 days ago I test drove a prius V and Im very psyched about it. I really like all the gadgets. However after reading a bit on the net there are still some concerns that are making me lean towards the VW TDI Wagon. Some say the toyota is very loud when at high RPMs (when loaded or passing on the highway). How are the Volks diesel engines in these conditions We go camping a lot so well

TOYOTA TACOMA 06 Frame Rust Only 10000 miles and Garaged

My 2006 toyota Tacoma 4x4 has only 10007 miles and has been garaged since purchase. Ive already changed the oil 3 times with Mobil 1 and waxed the engine compartment twice--Im that kind of person. I noticed rust on the frame this past weekend. I looked more closely and found it to be prevalent at all the joints and all the ends and all the attachments--its pervasive. At this point it is surface rust.

TOYOTA YARIS D4D Diesel for USA

With the arrival of clean diesel engines in VWs and Audis here in the US has anyone heard anything about toyota bringing their line of D4D clean diesels too

the prius 50 mpg for that matter almost 2x the price of a Punto) look pretty weak in comparison. And the new euro spec clean diesels run quietly dont smoke and have enough pep for anyone looking for economical transportation. Did 70-80 mph on the motorways without any trouble albiet with a bit less accelerative ability than most Americans would wish to enjoy (not need IMO). Im convinced that if toyota

TOYOTA YARIS Cruze To Get Turbo Diesel

Chevy is announceing that the Cruse will get a turbo diesel option next year and that it will get 50 mpg. But dont get excited Diesels are like hybrids. The increased mpg does NOT offset the added pricetag. Or even come close. Basically diesels and hybrids take the money you would have given to Exxon and give it to whoever made the car. And then some. So toyota USA can still win by offering a car that weights 1800 pounds has a 1 liter GAS engine and costs less than say 13000.

sell like hotcakes imo because there are many people like me that would love a diesel small car but know from bitter experience the horrible repair records crooked dealers and inflated price of the VW diesels which are the only game in town right now. our relatives in Holland have a yaris diesel- quite a fuel miser since they pay the equivilant of 9gallon there that kind of fuel savings with toyota

TOYOTA YARIS Broke 50 MPG

Hi Everyone Well its been two months since I first broke the 50 MPG barrier. Just filled up my tank early this morning and the calculation came out to 51.542... I filled-up at the 7th Bar (14 Tank). I have been using the same hypermiling techniques that Ive learned from this great Fuel Economy Forum The only difference in driving this time rather than in May is that it involved a shorter trip (200mi)

coefficient times frontal area or CdA) is so critically important. Unfortunately its not possible to drive 55 in most places and still go with the flow. Jimmy Carter tried (for this reason... and because it saves lives) but Americans like more speed and have longer distances to travel particularly in the West. Yaris compares pretty good with CdA at 6.13 as compared to 5.84 for the third Gen prius.

NISSAN CUBE II Z11 2008 Nissan Cube vs. 2008 Scion xB

non of this is mine. i just thought i would post it. all credit gos to edmunds.com Dont we all have a happy childhood memory of our parents buying a new refrigerator and getting to play in the giant delivery box Within minutes the box was refashioned into a clubhouse. Or it became a sled and we piled in for a tumble down the nearest hill. So we cant help but imagine that box-shape small cars like

to diesel engines yet these types of vehicles are gaining in popularity. In 2007 56 percent of consumers said they would consider a hybrid says Mike Omotoso senior manager of powertrain forecasting for JD Power and Associates.

class alone. There is nothing I do that should concern the government so they should just leave me alone and not tax me to check up on my actions. For the record all my vehicles are running all factory emissions equipment. And as far as this total bull emissions policy we have here. Its due to this policy no one will sell a diesel over here. A freaking jetta diesel gets better gas mileage than a toyota
