Model News

The Lexus HS 250h is a completely new model for 2010, with a full-hybrid system combining a 4-cylinder gasoline engine and electric motor system. The small sedan has room for five and a large trunk. Though not directly related to the Toyota Prius, the HS 250h has a focus on fuel-efficient luxury, top technology and accident-avoidance features and sustainable materials.


Value Writeup

Lexus says that the HS 250h the world's first hybrid-only vehicle, achieving 80-percent better city mileage (35 mpg combined) than the average near-luxury car. Safety is also a focus of the new HS; it features a total of ten airbags and class-leading accident-avoidance features. The HS 250h performs comparably to other full-hybrid vehicles, but it does have an unbeatable feature set. Standard features are very generous, but some exciting technology is optional, such as Lane-Keep Assist and the Heads-Up Display.


Model Highlights

The new HS 250h is offered in two different models: base and Premium. Both come with a version of Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive, pairing a 147-horsepower, 2.5-liter Atkinson Cycle 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor system, regenerative braking and a battery pack. Altogether the system produces up to 187 hp and achieves EPA fuel economy ratings of 35 mpg city, 34 highway--all on regular gas.

Performance from the hybrid system is actually quite good; it can accelerate to 60 mph in 8.4 seconds, according to Lexus. At higher speeds, the HS 250h's aerodynamic body and 0.27 coefficient of drag aid both performance and fuel economy while also reducing wind noise.

A MacPherson strut front suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension, with front stabilizer bars, help provide good sharp handling, and steering is provided by a rack-and-pinion design with electric power assist.

The HS 250h has seating for five adults, along with a quite large trunk. However taller drivers might find headroom tight. Throughout the interior--such as for the standard upholstery and some trim--Lexus used bioplastic materials from plant sources. About 30 percent of interior and trunk trim components use so-called ecological plastics. The focal point of the interior is the swoopy instrument panel and its Remote Touch control, which utilizes a trackball-like controller in the center of the console. It controls menus and navigation-system functions with relative ease.

All HS 250h models come with a multi-information display that uses high-contrast OLED technology and displays fuel consumption, range and power flow for the hybrid system. There's also an Eco Drive light that helps the driver find the most fuel-efficient driving style.

Safety features are more abundant in the HS 250h than in many more expensive luxury cars. All standard are front and rear side airbags, side curtain airbags, and knee airbags for both front occupants--a total of ten airbags. Active head restraints are also standard, as are electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes and Brake Assist.

The base model HS comes with a feature list that most buyers will be happy with--including a sunroof, power heated mirrors, power seats, a smart-key system, a garage-door opener, dual-zone climate control, rear air conditioning vents and a 10-speaker sound system with 6-disc changer, USB and auxiliary inputs. Options on the base include a Touring Package that brings 18-inch wheels, 2-tone heated leather seats and other appearance upgrades. LED headlamps and wood trim

Packaged with the optional navigation system are XM NavTraffic and NavWeather features, which integrate live traffic and weather conditions with navigation maps and routing, along with XM Sports & Stocks. Lexus Enform is also a suite of services includes with the navigation system; it brings Destination Assist and eDestination, which allow the nav system to be programmed remotely, even through a call to a live assistant. A backup monitor and wide-view front monitor are also available.

Upgrading to the Premium model brings leather upholstery, wood trim, heated-and-ventilated front seats, heated side mirrors with puddle lamps, and rain-sensing wipers, among other extras. Options excusive to the Premium include Lane Keep Assist, which reads the pavement striping, sounds an alarm and even nudges you back into the lane; dynamic radar cruise control, which maintains a set distance to vehicles ahead; a heads-up display; park assist; a pre-collision system, and a driver attention monitor that reads the driver's face for telltale patterns of fatigue. They're all part of a $3,900 Tech Package.

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2006 through 2011 RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS250h passenger vehicles manufactured from October 2005 through September 2010. If the nuts for adjusting the rear wheel alignment are improperly tightened during service, the rear suspension arm (rear tire rod) may develop unwanted movement and rust leading to thread damage and eventual failure. Failure of the rear tire rod will cause an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.

Consequence
Failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tie rods and replace any that have rust or corrosion on the alignment adjustment threads. All of the rear tie rods will then be encased in an epoxy to prevent future environmental damage. Due to limitations in parts, the recall remedy will be launched in phases from September 2013 through February 2014. All owners will receive notification of the recall, with most receiving second notifications when parts are available in their area. IMPORTANT: This recall supersedes Toyota and Lexus recall 12V-373. All vehicles that have been inspected and remedied under the previous recall need to be reinspected and have the appropriate remedy applied.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2010 Prius vehicles manufactured March 31, 2009, through October 9, 2009; and model year 2010 Lexus HS250h vehicles manufactured June 19, 2009, through October 9, 2009. Nitrogen gas from a component of the brake booster pump assembly could leak into the brake fluid.

Consequence
As nitrogen is released into the brake fluid, the brake pedal may have reduced hydraulic pressure. Under certain circumstances, this condition could affect stopping distance and increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected brake booster pump assemblies. The recall is expected to begin late July 2013. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 vehicles manufactured October 31, 2005, to September 7, 2010, and 2010 Lexus HS250h vehicles manufactured July 6, 2009, to August 26, 2010. The affected vehicles have rear suspension arms (rear tie rods) with adjusting lock nuts that may have been improperly tightened after servicing. As a result of being loose, the arm may have thread damage and may rust, possibly leading to the failure of the arm and an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.

Consequence
Failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners and dealers will replace both rear suspension arms and encapsulate the locknuts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 30, 2016. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's numbers for this recall are G0V for Toyota vehicles and GLK for Lexus vehicles. Note: This recall supersedes recall 13V-383, in which some vehicles were only inspected, sealed, and did not have both arms replaced. The affected vehicles were previously recalled under 13V-383, but did not have both rear suspension arms replaced at that time. Those vehicles need to have both arms replaced as part of this recall remedy.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
