Toyota’s $1.2B mea culpa, GM in damage control mode A gut-wrenching 9-1-1 call from an off-duty California Highway Patrol officer with three family members pleading for help in a runaway Lexus made headlines Aug. 28, 2009. The 2009 ES350 sedan, a loaner from the dealer in El Cajon, took off suddenly at up to 100 mph as they headed north on state Route 125 in Santee and all four occupants died in a crash when the driver was unable to halt the unintended acceleration.

2014 Toyota Corolla Gets 42 MPG? Read The Fine Print This is the 2014 Toyota Corolla, but not the one that gets 42 m.p.g. (Toyota) SAN DIEGO The 2014 Toyota Corolla is supposedly an all new, 11th-generation version of the model first introduced in 1967.

But there are caveats. That is not for every model in the new Corolla line. In fact, you may be hard-pressed to find the model that gets 42 m.p.g. Even if you could find one, you might not want it. Why? The only Corolla model that is EPA-rated at ...

Toyota’s $1.2 billion fine, GM recall highlight defects in U.S. auto safety The announcement today by U.S. federal prosecutors of a $1.2 billion payment by Toyota to avoid prosecution over safety problems linked to 37 deaths closes the chapter on a dark moment for the world’s largest automaker — just as General Motors struggles to answer questions about its own delayed recall of 1.6 million vehicles linked to at least 12 deaths.
