Toyota faces $2 billion class action as 260,000 Aussies affected by ‘defective’ vehicles
Car giant Toyota is appealing an Australian class action ruling that could see more than 260,000 consumers receive damages totalling an eye-watering $2 billion. The Federal Court ruled against Toyota in a landmark judgment in April. Toyota will be challenging the “factual and legal basis for the award of damages. Commenced in 2019 with the backing of Balance Legal Capital, the class action centres on faulty diesel particulate filters used in the affected vehicles.
