Are the American Public Fair to Toyota?


2012 Toyota Camry IIHS 40MPH Small Overlap TestThe question I ask my self lately after reading CBSNEWS and Insidelines article on the new IIHS small overlap test which fails Toyota Camry and Prius V vehicle’s. I had to ask myself? Are The American Public fair to Toyota? And my answer is NO!. Sad but true.

The Point is their are not stating the fact instead they are hiding behind the fact to give American Auto companies such as Ford and Chevrolet the edge but if you didn’t know, cars from those companies also failed the test but that didn’t make headline even though it was tuck away inside the article. The 2013 Camry and 2013 Prius V was design even before the IIHS came about with these test. Toyota design the new Camry back in 2010 and the Prius V in 2009. The Ford Fusion which also failed the test just hit the market; it was design this year along with the Honda 4 door (the Camry biggest competition) the Honda coup also failed the test. What people also failed to write is that these new tests more than 90% of cars these days failed this test because this test wasn’t a standard for IIHS.
