17 Nov Toyota – Tacoma, Tundra and Sequoia – Rusty Frame – National Class Action Launched
LEX GROUP Inc. has launched a national class action lawsuit against TOYOTA CANADA INC. (hereinafter “Toyota”), on behalf of all persons in Canada who have purchased and/or leased and/or or own one of the following Toyota vehicles:
- Toyota Tacoma (2005 to 2010);
- Toyota Tundra (2007 and 2008);
- Toyota Sequoia (2005 to 2008);
(hereinafter collectively the « Toyota vehicles »)
Toyota recently admitted that the frames of the Toyota vehicles were prone to excessive and premature rust corrosion because the said frames were not properly prepared and treated against rust corrosion when manufactured. This class action alleges that Toyota leased and sold the Toyota vehicles when their frames were not adequately treated against rust corrosion, which constitutes an important design defect. Since the frames are prone to premature and excessive rust corrosion, this renders the vehicles unstable and unsafe for the passengers.
