Airbags didn’t deploy? Sir, your Toyota didn’t collide properly!

Toyota Etios Accident

When my Boss, Mr. Anil Nair bashed his Toyota Etios car head-on at the Ernakulam-Allepey highway, he suffered injuries and his co-passenger was hospitalized for 2 weeks.

When he informed his #Toyota dealer that the airbags did not deploy, their reply was, “It’s because you did not collide properly”! Mr. Anil Nair then asked them, “then how must I collide for the airbags to function properly? How can I trust this vehicle again?”

Hope they will also give training to bang cars right so that air bags get deployed. I am requesting you to forward it so that by the power of social media, it will get noticed by the Toyota India/USA officials and they will take the necessary steps to ensure safety.

How are such cars to be sold and run on the streets? Isn’t it the responsibility of the government to ensure that manufacturing companies check every car before it reaches the stores and heavily penalize them in the event of such failures? Regarding the manufacturer, Toyota, it has been in the news for concealing safety defects. The comments section is open to discussion for you, the logical Indian.
