Safety incident date:
Aug 09, 2014
Location:
Miami, FL

i was alone, preparing to get on the turnpike access road when a car/van hit the right front passenger side of my car. details of the accident were recorded many hours after the crash. i was never asked to provide details. my car rolled over twice down a steep-angled but shallow embankment and then righted itself upright. my seatbelt was fastened and snugged but at no time did the retaining function engage.the seatbelt functioned like a bunji cord. and the airbags (neither front airbag) deployed until many minutes after the crash, as i was sliding across the front seat and console as i began to exit the passenger side. i was and am still injured, have lost much use of my left wrist and hand, suffered a blow to the back of my head which temporarily left me deaf. i still have severe contusions of the left and right legs, and abdomen both externally and on the inside of the abdominal wall.

1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle was not using anit-lock brakes. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

New Bern, NC

i received a safety recall notice regarding the air bags on our toyota yaris and took the vehicle in for repair to toyota of new bern, 5010 highway 70 east, new bern, nc, 252 637 7200. the recall specifed a spiral cable replacement. subsequently, toyota of new bern service said they replaced the cable but that another problem prevented them from repairing the driver's side airbag. the cost to repair this defect would run $1,600, i was told. i called corporate toyota which reiterated that repairs could not be made without payment for repair of a broken wire behind interior trim within the car. i am somewhat at a loss since there is not sign of any damage to interior trim sufficient to break wires behind it. and frankly i have only the word of toyota that they did indeed replace the spiral cable. the driver side airbag remains inoperative until this issue is resolved, a risk to safety and a detriment to any future sale of the vehicle. .

airbag light started flashing intermittently. took it to the dealership who charged $ 100 for diagnostics and told me it would cost $500 to fix. i then took it to a self employed mechanic who had worked for toyota. he said it had just become disconnected under the seat. he was able to fix it, it seemed, for a period of time, but the problem keeps coming back. i recently learned online that this is a common problem and huge safety concern. several who have shelled out the money to toyota to have it "fixed" say the problem has not gone away. i am so angry that toyota hasn't taken responsibility and nhtsa is not holding them accountable.

making a left hand turn after stopping at a stop sign, going approx. 10 mph, the right front tire (only) bumped into a railroad track and the sensors told the car it had a front end collision and both airbags deployed even though no one was in the passenger seat. this explosion busted the front windshield, passenger side glass, knocked the front grill off, etc.. as the driver my face was cut and my left eye lens was blown out from the explosion and flying shrapnel and so i now have a transplanted left eye lens with a serial number and poor eyesight.

Ladera Ranch, CA

at approximately 8:20 am on friday, january 16th, 2015, i was pulling into an empty parking spot in front of my apartment complex after dropping my 6 year-old at school. this was a routine as i do this every morning. however, as i was slowing the car down preparing to park (5-10 mph), the car suddenly accelerated (approximately 25-30 mph) and ran over the sidewalk, bushes and into the side of my apartment complex. despite my attempts to brake, the car would not stop. in the process i ran through the side of my apartment complex wall and front gate, nearly going right through my front door and living room where my 6 month old and wife were playing. i had to place the car in park and turn the car off. that stopped the car. i then turned the car back on and reversed. luckily no one was injured, but there was substantial damage done to the side of my apartment complex and my vehicle. should be noted, that despite the impact, no airbags were deployed. at the moment, my insurance company has me at fault. i have filed with toyota corporate and they are having a specialist investigate the vehicle. i do not feel safe in this car. and hope that this is investigated further. had i not turned off my car, i would have surely gone through my front door and into my living room, potentially hurting my 6 month old and wife.
