Toyota named in class action lawsuit over defective power lift gates

Toyota Motor Corporation

This class action lawsuit contends that certain Toyota Highlander vehicles including, but not limited to the following models: Toyota Highlander XU20, Toyota Highlander XU40, Highlander Hybrid MHU28, Toyota Highlander XU50 have defective power lift gates that fail to operate and costs thousands of dollars to fix.

Despite receiving complaints, Toyota has denied liability and failed to reimburse vehicle owners for costs incurred resulting from damages related to the failures of the lift gate and/or refuse to provide repairs free of charge.

Plaintiff brings claims individually and on behalf of a class of all other similarly situated purchasers of Highlanders.
