Toyota Recalling 670,000 Prius Hybrids in U.S.


Toyota is recalling 670,000 of its 2004-9 Prius hybrids in the United States to fix problems involving the loss of steering and the hybrid powertrain shutting down, the automaker has told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Toyota recalls Priuses in 2.77M global recall
The move is part of a worldwide recall of 2.77 million vehicles, according to The Associated Press, which quoted Toyota officials in Japan. Only the Prius is affected in the United States. Outside the United States the recall covers the Corolla and the Wish, a small van.

The cars are being recalled because the metal used for a steering component is not hard enough, according to a report the automaker filed on Wednesday with the safety agency. The part could wear out “if the steering wheel is frequently and forcefully turned to the full left or full right position while driving at low speeds,” and that “could result in the loss of steering ability,” according to the report.News for Toyota Recalling

Toyota said it got its first notice of such a failure in February 2010 in Japan and began an investigation that was inconclusive. Last February, Toyota got its first report of steering loss in the United States. This month, the company concluded that it finally knew the cause and decided a recall was needed.

A second recall covers 350,000 of those same vehicles and involves replacing an electric water pump that could fail and shut down the hybrid powertrain system. But the gas engine would continue to move the vehicle, Brian Lyons, a Toyota spokesman, said in an e-mail.

Toyota told the agency it got its first report of a water pump problem in 2009 in Japan, which resulted in changes to the pump in 2010. But pump failures continued, and it was not until this month that Toyota determined the cause of the problem – a coil wire that could be scratched, leading to corrosion and “in some cases break.”

This is the second time the automaker has experienced a cooling problem on the Prius hybrid system.

In 2010, the company conducted what it called a customer satisfaction campaign that covered 390,000 2004-7 Priuses in North America. Toyota said it would replace the coolant pump because it could malfunction and cause the hybrid system to stop working.

At the time, a Toyota spokesman told Wheels a recall was not necessary because the gasoline engine would still move the vehicle. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration did not object.

Customer satisfaction or special service campaigns are less demanding than a recall, which has legal requirements and penalties for failing to comply. Mr. Lyons said in an e-mail on Wednesday that the service campaign dealt with a different problem than the new recall.

Stopping Procedure for Toyota Hybrid Vehicles.

Toyota says it is not aware of any accidents in the United States related to either of the recalls on Wednesday.

The company described the recalls as voluntary. But once a manufacturer is aware of a safety problem it must — within five business days — inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of its plan for a recall or face civil penalties.

News for Toyota Recalling Prius Hybrids in U.S

This is not the first time the Prius has had problems that resulted in a loss of power. In 2005, the agency investigated about 124,000 2004-5 Priuses after some owners complained the gasoline engine would stall.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration eventually found 428 complaints from owners and almost 6,700 warranty claims. But it decided to drop the investigation and not press for a recall after Toyota said it would conduct a special service campaign to make a software change to prevent the problem.

Tax on Motor Vehicles Increased


The Government has revised taxes on cars, three-wheelers and motorbikes effective from today (31 March 2012) in a move to reduce import costs and motor vehicle imports.

Motor Vehicles Tax Increased in Sri LankaTax on Motor vehicles which include cars, vans, trishaws and motor bicycles have been increased with immediate effect. The Ministry of Finance and Planning announced today that the increase was made to ensure a drop in the vehicles imported to the country in order to reduce the high traffic congestions prevalent. The Ministry also said that this move will help bring down the use of fuel by motorists.

The classifications of the Tax have been made to correspond with the engine capacity of the vehicles. Hybrid vehicle production taxes below 1000CC have been increased by 14 % with tax for all hybrids above 3000CC being increased by 57%.

Production duties for cars and vans have been classified into the fuel type used together with the engine capacity. The tax for cars that use Petrol under 1000CC have been increased by 85% with cars having an engine capacity of over 3000CC being increased by 129%. The category between 1000 CC to 2000 CC have also been increased by 85%.

Production duties on Diesel cars have been increased from upto 114% to 173% to correspond with the engine capacity.

Hybrid Car Tax increasesed in Sri LankaImport duty on vehicle spare parts have also been increased to correspond the highest value on either Specific Duty or Advolarum Duty disbanding the previous method of taxation on spare parts.

However there has been no change in the tax imposed on tractors, busses and Lorries.

Toyota Prius Start Up Problems


Toyota Prius (hybrid) wont start, what’s wrong?
Toyota Prius (hybrid) wont start, what's wrong?

When I pressed the power on button, nothing would happen. No lights, no sound, no response… the car was absolutely dead. (NHW 20)

What can I do? Is it a problem of the 12v battery? or the 400v? Can a Prius 2 be started with jumper cables on the 12v battery? Or should I just call the Toyota official dealer?

Please help, do you have any ideas or suggestions what I can do to get the car working or what is wrong?  Dr. Sampath

Porsche Panamera – Hybrid Now is Sri Lanka


Porsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri Lanka

The Panamera S Hybrid has a 3.0-liter V6 compressor engine with direct fuel injection and fully variable intake camshaft timing adjustment. Combined with the charge effect of the compressor, this ensures a high torque of 324 lb.-ft. even at low engine speeds. Power output is 333 hp.

The combustion engine is assisted by a 47 hp electric motor incorporated between the transmission and the engine. The motor is supplied by a high-voltage nickel-metal hydride battery located below the floor of the rear luggage compartment.

Together, the two units develop a maximum total system output of 380 hp and a maximum system torque of 428 lb.-ft. and accelerate the Panamera S Hybrid from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds. Top track speed is 167 mph. This is achieved with fuel consumption of just 7.1 l/100 km.

The interplay between combustion engine, electric motor and high-voltage battery is regulated by the electronic engine management system. It engages and disengages the combustion engine by means of a specially developed separating coupling. Thanks to the rapid-action separating coupling and the equally fast response of the combustion engine, these processes are performed comfortably and smoothly. You do not need to adapt to the system.

Panamera S Hybrid: Fuel consumption* in (l/100 km) urban 7.6 · extra urban 6.8 · combined 7.1 · CO2 emissions 167 g/km

*  Figures for optional 19-inch All-season tyres optimised for rolling resistance in l/100 km: urban 7.4 · extra urban 6.6 · combined 6.8 · CO2 emissions 159 g/km.
