Detroit, Mich. (ots-PRNewswire) - Visteon Corporation is providing
new Toyota Avalon owners with an added sense of personal security
through a system designed to prevent drive-away theft.
The Visteon passive anti-theft system, now available as an option
on the 2000 Toyota Avalon, ensures that only the owner's key is used
to start the vehicle. If an incorrect key or starting method is used,
Visteon's "immobilizer" communicates with the engine control system
and shuts down all the engine operating systems, making the vehicle
inoperable. Two owner keys are originally programmed into the system,
and additional keys can be added.
"Visteon has the technical expertise to offer automotive
manufacturers integrated, high quality, cost competitive safety
solutions designed to meet increased consumer demands," said Roseann
Stevens, vice president of global accounts, Visteon. "This
partnership with Toyota is an example of what we have to offer
customers -- innovative technology and superior global service."
Delivering the anti-theft system to Toyota was a Visteon global
team effort. Visteon teams in Japan, Germany and several North
American locations worked with their local Toyota customers to
manufacture and provide the system, ensuring that all product
requirements and specifications were met flawlessly and on time.
"Visteon is committed to our partnership with Toyota in developing
new security and other vehicle systems for applications spanning the
globe," added Stevens.
Visteon Corporation is a leading full-service supplier that
delivers consumer-driven technology solutions to automotive
manufacturers worldwide and through multiple channels within the
