Details: The Toyota economic loss settlement will resolve a massive consolidated class action (In Re: Toyota Motor Corp. Unintended Acceleration Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation) that accuses Toyota of selling millions of Toyota, Scion and Lexus vehicles with defective electronic throttle control systems (“ETCS”). This alleged defect has caused some of these vehicles to experience sudden and unintended acceleration, resulting in a significant decline in value of these vehicles. The case does not involve claims of personal injury.


If you currently or previously own(ed), lease(d), purchased or insured an eligible Toyota, Scion or Lexus vehicle model, you can receive one of the following benefits from the class action lawsuit settlement if it is approved:

Free Brake Override Installation: The brake override system will automatically reduce engine power when the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal are applied simultaneously under certain driving conditions.

Cash Payment (in lieu of Brake Override System): If you sold a Subject Vehicle during the following applicable periods, you can claim a cash payment of between $37.50 and $125, depending on the year of the vehicle, date of sale and the number of claims made. The only way to receive a cash payment is to submit a claim by July 29, 2013.


Class Members eligible to receive this cash payment include any one who:

(a) sold a Subject Vehicle during the period September 1, 2009 to December 31, 2010, inclusive;
(b) returned a Subject Vehicle before the lease termination date during the period September 1, 2009 to December 31, 2010, inclusive; or
(c) insured and/or guaranteed the residual value of a Subject Vehicle as of September 1, 2009, and with respect to such Subject Vehicle, thereafter either made payment to an insured, or sold the Subject Vehicle, provided such payment or sale was made by a Residual Value Insurer on or before December 31, 2010; or
(d) returned a leased Subject Vehicle before the lease termination date after having reported an alleged unintended acceleration event(s) to Toyota, an authorized Toyota Dealer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”), before December 1, 2012; or
(e) had a Subject Vehicle that was declared a total loss by an insurer during the period from September 1, 2009 to December 31, 2010, inclusive.

A Fairness Hearing will be held on June 14, 2013.

Got this message after submitting a claim for my GS430:

Quote :
Based on the information which you have supplied and which has been provided to our office, you are the current owner of the below Hybrid Subject Vehicle. As such, your Settlement Benefits include the implementation of a Customer Support Program by Toyota that will stand by the reliability of the vehicle by providing prospective coverage for repairs and adjustments needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship in certain parts associated with the vehicle’s operation at no cost to the owner or lessee if any of those parts fail, break, or malfunction. The Customer Support Program will last for ten (10) years after the expiration of any existing warranty for each of the covered parts, subject to a maximum limit of 150,000 miles, except that each eligible vehicle will receive no less than three (3) years of coverage from the date of final settlement approval (regardless of when the underlying warranty expires and your vehicle’s mileage), if the Court finally approves the settlement. The covered parts are the: (i) engine control module; (ii) cruise control switch; (iii) accelerator pedal assembly; (iv) stop lamp switch; and (v) throttle body assembly. The Customer Support Program is transferable with the Subject Vehicle.

You need not take any action in order to be eligible to participate in the Customer Support Program. If a covered part fails, breaks, or malfunctions due to a defect in materials or workmanship from the date of final approval through the end of the Customer Service Program, you should take your vehicle to a Toyota/Lexus/Scion authorized dealer for repair or adjustment under the Customer Support Program.

If I don’t exclude myself, can I sue later?
No. Unless you exclude yourself, you give up the right to sue Toyota for the claims resolved by this settlement. If the settlement is finally approved, you will be permanently enjoined and barred from initiating or continuing any lawsuit or other proceeding against Toyota about the issues in the lawsuit.
Good luck filing a claim later on.

I sure hope the override system doesn't break... laugh out loud

I was recently looking for a new car and I can't count how many cars had "new breaks". Would have never thought that a newly broken car was a selling point.

And the best brake override system is already in your car - it's called neutral
Most people who drive automatics don't know anything other than P, R and D.

Most Toyotas don't come with a manual. Good luck finding one.

All "run away" cars have been automatic, so far. Never hear about a manual car running away...

Lesson: Automatic kill. Clutch saves.

Toyota Corollas 1998 - 2003 had cheap rings & a subset started burning a lot of oil. Even when they were still under warranty, Toyota would tell owners burning 1 quart per 1,000 miles was normal, and thus refused to do anything to address the problems. Many didn't start burning copious amounts of oil until out of warranty. While it was not a huge percentage of cars, the problem was due to Toyota cutting costs & using cheaper rings in the cars.
This is Toyota's modus operandi: deny any responsibility & refuse to fix the problem. Blame the customer (with the oil burning, Toyota regularly would accuse the owner of not changing the oil regularly, or not using the correct oil. Even when a customer had complete oil change records disproving Toyota's claims, Toyota still would do nothing.
The difference with the brakes is that BRAKE FAILURE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO KILL PEOPLE and it was only Toyota faced these lawsuits did Toyota take any action to address the problem. A lot of people have no problems with their Toyotas, but if you do have a problem, don't expect Toyota to be quick to admit any fault. Honda has a much better track record when it comes to customer care (as well as manufactures better designed cars without the serious problems seen with Toyota).
It is TRUE about burning 1 quart per 1,000 miles on 2.4L engine. Every car I know that was a 2.4L engine burn oil 1 quart per 1,000 miles.

Damn it. I missed this post? I had purchased two brand new lexus IS350s, and sold them.

.... Nevermind. I sold my 06 IS350 in July 2006, and the 07 in May of 2009
