It saved our lives
By bandman on
2000 Toyota Sienna LE 4dr Minivan
I have to say that this van has been a
joy to own. It has gone to Florida many
times, plus served well as "Mom's School
Bus". On July 9, 2003 we were in an
accident with 4 other vehicles. We were
hit from behind. The lady who hit us
paniced and pushed us into 4 other
vehicles. I have to say that the way
this van was built saved our lives. The
van had $10,300 in damage, but the
passenger cabin was in very good
condition after all was said and done.
We did have to go to the hospital, and
had some serious bumps and bruises, but
I feel the body of this van, along with
seatbelts, saved our lives.
My favorite feature without a doubt is
the electric door. My 5-year-old (now 8)
called it the "Princess door". She loved
being able to let herself out at school
with out moma or papa's help.
The airbags did not work on our van in
the accident July 9. They are saying
that it was because of the angles we hit
the other vehicles. I think that after
hitting 3 cars, one hard enough to knock
the entire back end off a truck, the
airbags probably should have worked!
