- the contact owns a Toyota 2006 Scion Tc. The contact complained about the airbags and the wire harness system on the vehicle. On April 29, 2006 the contact's daughter was involved in a collision while driving the vehicle on a sunny day. The vehicle was driven to a stop sign at an intersection that was a two way stop. The contact's vehicle was struck on the passenger's side mid to rear doors by an incoming vehicle. This caused the front bumper to collide with the second vehicle. The contact wanted to file a complaint against Toyota since the airbags and wire harness system did not provide the protection required with this type of collision. The case is been reviewed by all state. Toyota explained that since the wiring harness was cut when the vehicle was struck it caused the seat belts and airbags not to deploy. There was one injury the current and failure mileage were both 500 miles.
