If you own or lease a Toyota or Lexus vehicle, you may be eligible to benefit from a Class Action Settlement. A number of Toyota owners have sued Toyota, alleging that their vehicles were affected by a defect that can cause unintended acceleration. The lawsuit was brought on behalf of hundreds of Canadian Toyota consumers. It has now been settled, meaning that the Toyota owners have accepted a package of benefits in exchange for discontinuing the lawsuit.
Toyota’s solution is to install a Brake Override System (BOS) on all affected vehicles. However, some vehicles cannot be equipped with one.
If your vehicle is listed below, it cannot be equipped with BOS or its eligible to be equipped with BOS. Instead, you may be eligible to make a claim for $62.50 cash.
