The authors comment on a decision of the Court of Appeal which granted the appeal, reversed the Superior Court’s decision and authorized the class action initiated by the petitioner.

If You Own or Lease or Previously Owned, Purchased, or Leased a Toyota Tacoma (2005-2010), a Toyota Tundra (2007-2008), or a Toyota Sequoia (2005-2008), You Could Get Benefits from a Class Action Settlement.The Courts have approved the settlement in class action lawsuits started in Ontario and Quebec against Toyota Canada, Inc. (Toyota) concerning purchase(d) or lease(d) Model Year 2005–2010 Toyota Tacoma, 2007–2008 Toyota Tundra, or 2005–2008 Toyota Sequoia vehicles distributed for sale or lease in Canada. The Settlement provides a free Frame Inspection and Replacement Program through which Toyota Dealers will, upon your request and free of charge, inspect the frames on the Subject Vehicles to determine whether your Subject Vehicle’s frame should be replaced. If the frame needs to be replaced because it satisfies the Rust Perforation Standard, replacement of the frame and associated parts will be at no cost to you. If the frame does not meet the criteria for frame replacement, under certain circumstances, the Toyota Dealer will apply Corrosion-Resistant Compounds (“CRC”) at no cost to you, pursuant to the Inspection Protocol. You can contact your Toyota Dealer beginning on July 21, 2018 to have your Subject Vehicle inspected as part of this program. The settlement also reimburses Class Members who previously paid out-of-pocket for frame replacement due to rust perforation that satisfies the Rust Perforation Standard that were incurred prior to June 8, 2018, and that were not otherwise reimbursed. You can exclude yourself from the class action by October 22, 2018. If you do so, you will not get any settlement benefits, but you keep the right to sue Toyota about the issues in the lawsuit. The Claim Period ends on November 19, 2018. The full length notice describing how to obtain settlement relief or exclude yourself is available on this page and at www.Toyotaframesettlement.ca.
