Bought the fully loaded Yaris as opposed to the basic one mainly for the airbags protection – 8 airbags I was told. I paid $160,000.00. Three years warranty came with my new Yaris. Eight weeks after I bought the car I was involved in an accident, in which I was hit by another car on the passenger side, which caused my car to cross a four-roads junction and crash into a concrete wall and a metal light post.
The impact was great, both my son and I sustained injuries. The complete front of my car and both sides have been damaged.
Although the impact was great not even one of the 8 airbags inflated therefore we had no protection from the airbags. The estimated repair cost of the damage from Toyota mechanics is $64000.00.
My complaint is that I believe the car is faulty, and that if I were to accept the car after it has been repaired I would have no confidence in its safety. Toyota is making light of this.
I honestly believe that I deserve an explanation from Toyota and a replacement vehicle.
