It seems like Toyota would also have a system to prevent collisions like this in its vehicles. It just seems like this type of technology should be in most vehicles at this point. It protects not only the people in the car, but also the people walking down the street or driving in the other cars on the road.

Now they have more of an obligation to include it with more and more car makers using the technology, helps them to stay relevant, which makes me wonder to what other vehicles will the tech roll out and when.

It's hard to justify not putting it in other cars when they have put it in a car like the Scion iA. Not many cars that are down market from the iA.

Exactly. It came with what got handed down to them, they just had to rebrand it and make it seem as if it was actually from them. But at least we're getting it in this segment of all segments.

It seems like the automotive companies are all moving towards better safety systems. Even Honda is following this trend with their sensing system.

I'm not missing that. I think that regardless of if it came directly from Scion or it comes from Mazda, its in a Scion product now and they have to stand by that product and own it. Toyota has the technology, so I don't really find that a very compelling argument.

I'm just wondering how this can be tested by the average person at the dealership. Unless we start driving a bit too close to the wall for comfort, how will we know if the avoidance system works or how it's supposed to feel when it takes affect?

You can try to request that they demonstrate it for you. It can be easy, turning over a trash can and driving into it should be doable or just about any other objects that can be used for that purpose:


what ever you do, don't do this:

Who would ever think that this was a good idea? Although it does prove that the self stopping system was not operating as it should.
