“Total Recall” – Everything You Need To Know About The Airbag Recall

There’s a recall on the loose, and it could affect you.

It’s not a new recall. The BBC reports that over 25 million vehicles across 10 manufacturers have been recalled since this particular issue arose in 2008.

What’s the cause of the recall? Takata airbags, one of the two major manufacturers in the world, identified defective inflator and propellant devices in their airbags. The defect could result in shrapnel being propelled into the vehicle’s occupants in the event of a crash — so this is a fairly serious recall.

What do you need to do? Start with Toyota UK’s Recall Checker to see if your vehicle is affected. If you can’t use the site, a quick trip to your dealer can reveal whether you’ll need a replacement airbag.

In An Open Letter From Takata Corporation the company pledged to “dramatically” expand safety testing and work with authorities and manufacturers.

A Hole In One – Jemca Toyota Edgware Road and Mane Chance Sanctuary Team Up For Golf

Jemca Toyota Edgware road teamed up with Mane Chance Sanctuary, a local horse rescue, to fundraise through a day out on the links.

The “mane” attraction was the chance to win a Toyota Aygo donated by event sponsors Jemca Topyota Edgware Road by achieving a hole-in-one. Sadly, none were earned on the day, and so the prize remains unclaimed.

Mane Chance Sanctuary’s mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, abandoned and old horses, integrating them with the local community.

They regularly host visits from terminally ill children, those with special needs and other underprivileged youngsters fulfilling their aim of helping horses help people.

Toyota Croydon Supports Cumnor House School With Environmental Garden

A partnership has begun to truly blossom between Jemca Toyota Croydon and local independent school, Cumnor House.

General Manager Andreas Androu presented the nursery class with a generous donation on behalf of Jemca Toyota, which will be used to create an environmental garden for the children. The garden will provide learning opportunities for this year and future years under the supervision of the nursery programme.

It was a perfect day for presenting, as the children sang a lovely song about gardening under blue skies on the site of their future project.

We look forward to seeing the fruits of this exciting pairing and to supporting Cumnor House in the future.

Top cricket player enjoys Lexus innings with Lexus Edgware Road partnership

Cricketer Nick Compton, who has returned to Middlesex as part of his bid to make the England team once again, has taken delivery of a new Lexus RX as part of his new sponsorship with Lexus Edgware Road.

As well as entering into a partnership with Middlesex Country Cricket Club, including supporting its primary and secondary schools’ competitions, Lexus Edgware Road is backing the former England and Somerset player on his return to his ‘home’ club.

Nick, who returned to Middlesex from Somerset during the winter, has already played three matches resulting in two wins and one draw, which he takes as a good sign as the season begins in earnest. He said: “The first three matches were an excellent result and mark a positive start to the season as well as my return to Middlesex. I am looking forward to continuing to make an impact on the club’s matches as well as hoping that it will lead to a return to playing cricket for England.”

The 31-year-old former England Test batsman was selected two years ago and he represented the team for six months and previously played for Middlesex from 2001 to 2009. Whilst Nick, the grandson of England cricketing great Denis Compton, prepares for the challenges ahead, he can be content with the thought that his road trips will now be made behind the wheel of the new RX 450h.

When he collected his vehicle from the UK’s flagship centre at Edgware Road, north London, Nick said: “It is a very stylish model and extremely comfortable to drive and I am expecting the travelling to now become as enjoyable as playing the match itself!
“As a player, you do spend a lot of your time on the road and arriving feeling refreshed is vital to your performance. The last thing you want is to emerge from your car stiff and tired before having to practice or play a game. Being able to drive a car like the Lexus RX will make all the difference to my journey and I am delighted to have partnered with Lexus Edgware Road, I am very much looking forward to working with the business throughout the season.”

Nick’s RX450h F Sport emits just 145kg/km CO2 and returns up to 44.8 mpg on the combined cycle. The third generation Lexus’s luxury SUV is powered by second generation Lexus Hybrid Drive and includes advanced safety technology such as Pre-Crash Safety and Adaptive Cruise Control systems and Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management as well as an electronically controlled air suspension system. The RX 450h F Sport looks sportier and incorporates more precise driving dynamics as a result of its lateral damper system that increases stability and improves ride comfort by absorbing small vibrations.

Lexus Edgware Road general manager Diana Mackinnon commented: “Nick is right, there is absolutely nothing like driving a Lexus and we hope that being behind the wheel of car which has the highest levels of comfort will help him stay on top of his game.
“The RX is perfect for people with active lifestyles as it combines spaciousness, comfort, luxury, versatility and refined driving with performance when required. It’s also great to look at and has all the safety aspects you would expect from a premium vehicle which makes it ideal for someone like Nick. The sportier version is in keeping with his dynamic and enthusiastic approach to sport and we hope he sees his personality very much reflected in the model. We would like to wish him all the best for this season and we look forward to seeing some fantastic runs for Middlesex.”
