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.

All companies cut corners. Honda's in the early 2000-2003 had faulty transmissions that failed
prematurely (70-80K miles). Do a interweb search to read many cases of failure in accord, odyssey.

I had a 2000 Accord and when the transmission failed 6 months after the warranty, Honda did nothing. The rep just came up with a bunch of excuses.
My 2000 Accord got a flashing D at around 75K miles (had to reset the red Service light in order to have the car run again, but it'll come back on a week later, esp when it was really cold outside. I still remember on the day I brought the car in for trading, I had to reset that red service light to make sure it wouldn't come back on so the dealer would see it). I got lucky by trading it in for a $3k credit (my county offers that much for 10-year plus older cars traded in for new car purchase). And mind you, I changed the transmission fluid like clockwork every 30K.

I think after that incident, Honda switched their transmissions back to Made in Japan. That Accord is my first and last Honda.

so this is just if you have a car that could be faulty, but wasnt actually faulty? you can claim this even if you've never had issues with your car?

Maybe theres more to this story but it doesn't really seem fair for toyota...

Not with cars that have electronic controls. That's the problem. When the system goes haywire (as it did with the fatal CHP family Lexus incident) NOTHING works to stop it because almost nothing in modern cars is mechanically connected to the thing it's controlling - it's all electronic. So when this happened, none of the "common sense" stuff worked, because the electronics connecting everything was haywire.

That's why they're offering this mechanical override (which is standard equipment in Europe - another reason Toyota was busted, they took it out for the US market to save some pennies). It offers a *mechanical* failsafe that can shut the car down in a runaway emergency.

I only got the "brake system override installed free of charge" but I no longer have the car, shouldn't I be able to get money?

Awesome, thanks. Never got a postcard, though I know Toyota has my address since they've recently mailed me other warranty/recall info.

$125 for my Scion tC.

I own two Toyota vehicles, one of which is definitely included here but didn't receive any notice.

Also, the website now says:
Sorry, you are unable to submit a claim online.
The deadline to file a claim was July 29, 2013.

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.

newly broken car pay attention to check and routine inspections are also very practical

Someone missed the joke, or doesn't know the difference between "brakes" and "breaks"

Brakes stop the car, bike, stroller, roller blades.

Breaks is something you take from working
