AIRBAG SYSTEM


  1. OUTLINE


    1. The driver dual-stage Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbag and front passenger dual-stage SRS twin-chamber airbag supplement the seat belts to help reduce shock to the head and chest of the driver and front passenger in the event of a frontal collision.

    2. The SRS driver knee airbag is used as a supplement to the seat belts to help restrain the occupant's lower body (mainly knees), enhancing the effectiveness of occupant protection.

    3. The SRS side airbags are used in the event of a front or side collision to help reduce shock to the chest of the driver, front passenger or rear passenger.

    4. The SRS curtain shield airbags are used in the event of a front, side or rear side collision to help reduce shock to the head of the driver, front passenger and rear passengers.

    5. The Roll Sensing Curtain Shield Airbags (RSCA) helps to reduce the imapct applied to the occupants by operating the seat belt pretensioners for the driver, front passenger and rear seat outer passengers and the left and right curtain shield airbags.*

  2. PRECAUTION


    1. Event Data Recorder (EDR)


      1. This vehicle is equipped with an Event Data Recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an EDR is to record data that will assist in understanding how vehicle systems have performed in certain crash or near-crash situations (for example, situations involving airbag deployment or collisions with a road obstacle). The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less.

      2. The EDR is designed to record such data as:


        • How various systems were operating

        • How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal

        • The vehicle speed

      3. These data can be used to gain a better understanding of the circumstances in which crashes and injuries occur.

        Note

        Data are only recorded by the EDR in serious crash situations. No data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (for example, name, gender, age and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law enforcement, may be able to combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data routinely acquired during a crash investigation. To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties which have the necessary special equipment, such as law enforcement agencies, will be able to read the information if they have access to the vehicle or the EDR.

      4. Lexus will not disclose the data recorded in an EDR to a third party except when:


        • An agreement from the vehicle's owner (or the lessee for a leased vehicle) is obtained

        • Officially requested by the police or other authorities

        • For use by Lexus in a lawsuit

        • Ordered by a court of law

      5. However, if necessary, Lexus will:


        • Use the data for research on vehicle safety performance

        • Disclose the data to a third party for research purposes without disclosing information about the specific vehicle or vehicle owner
