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.
