Class action lawsut filed against Toyota

From Midday Report, 12:43 pm on 20 October 2023

A class action lawsuit has been filed, alleging thousands of Toyota cars sold in New Zealand since 2015 are faulty and that owners deserve compensation.

The lawsuit estimates 35,000 Hilux, Fortuner and Prado models were fitted with a defective engine part.

Hamish Davies is a senior associate at Shine Lawyers and told me the defect reduced the performance of vehicles and therefore lowered their value.

Davies spoke to Charlotte Cook.
