Early build current model RAV4 front airbags firing late is a bit of a concern. Toyota won't recall them which is even more of a concern.

So the Taurus is now the Safest car in the US!

Sure, you may have a fancier interior in a Avalon, but at least I wont die in the Taurus!

Says who?

I am assuming you are talking about top scores from both IIHS & NHTSA. Be that as it may, here are the top picks from IIHS as of today:

http://www.iihs.org/ratings/default.aspx

Of those on the list, Subaru Legacy also has acheived the top score from NHTSA:

http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4164.html

FWIW, few other IIHS top picks either, have not been tested, or not rated, from NHTSA: Audi A6, Saab 9-3 Convertible, Volvo C70 Convertible

Also, in other categories, the following also has acheived top scores from both agencies:

Acura MDX: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4110.html

Acura RDX: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4111.html

Ford Taurus X: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4290.html

Honda CRV: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4108.html

Honda Pilot: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/3997.html

Hyundai Entourage: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4315.html

Hyundai Santa Fe: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4235.html

Kia Sedona LWB: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4316.html | SWB: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4317.html

Mercedes M-Class: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4023.html

Subaru Forester: http://www.safercar.gov/Cars/4320.html

When it comes to reliability, BWM and Renault are in the same league... Might sound good for Renault, but it's the other way round: really bad for BWM!

Read:
It's the question at the back of every new buyers mind: When is this car going to start costing me money? And now you can find out!

Cover provider Warranty Direct has studied the repair histories of 16,000 cars  aged four to eight years  exclusively for Auto Express.

The results (pictured, right) show which parts among the UKs top-selling marques, including Vauxhall, Ford, VW, Mercedes, Toyota and Peugeot, are most likely to fail once the manufacturers guarantee has run out, plus the average cost of repair. Axle and suspension systems are among the first to go. These failed on nearly 14 per cent of the four-year-old Renaults. Transmissions and engines were most likely to last at least eight years  but an average auto box repair is 1,110. And there were big differences between makes. Nearly six per cent of four-year-old Peugeots had cooling faults, but no Hondas. The Japanese firm came on top; less than 20 per cent of its cars required major repairs. However, half the BMWs and Renaults studied needed work.
