CASE UPDATES

Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra
Rusted Frame Settlement

Blood Hurst & O’Reardon has 
reached a $3.4 billion settlement 
to have the frames of certain Toyota Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra vehicles 
inspected for excessive rust corrosion. Corroded frames are dangerous 
and must be replaced, so we urge 
all class members to have their 
vehicles inspected. When excessive
rust corrosion is found, Toyota will 
replace the frame. The vehicles 
covered are 2005-2010 Tacomas, 
2007-2008 Tundras and 2005-2008 Sequoias. Inspections and frame replacements are at no charge to 
vehicle owners and lessees.

Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra Rusted Frame Settlement

A federal court has preliminarily approved a settlement reached between Toyota Motor Sales and the owners of Toyota Tacoma vehicles, model years 2005 to 2010; Toyota Tundra vehicles, model years 2007 to 2008; and Toyota Sequoia vehicles, model years 2005 to 2008. The Court also appointed Timothy G. Blood of San Diego-based Blood Hurst & O’Reardon LLP and Chicago-based Ben Barnow of Barnow and Associates P.C. as class counsel.

The settlement involves about 1.5 million vehicles and covers all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and all other United States territories and possessions.

Under the settlement, each class member is entitled to have the frame of his or her vehicle inspected for rust corrosion. If excessive corrosion is found, the frame and associated parts will be replaced. The inspection and frame replacement is at no cost to class members.

A class member may have the frame inspected for free for up to 12 years from the time the vehicle was first sold or leased, or one year from final settlement approval, whichever is longer. Class members can also have their frames inspected multiple times during this period.

A vehicle’s frame plays a central role in the crashworthiness and stability of the vehicle. Inspections will not take long and will cost the class member nothing, but are important to ensure the safety and structural integrity of the vehicle.

Notice of the settlement, which will include instructions about frame replacement, reimbursement of costs you may have paid out and other important details, including information that will affect your legal rights, will be mailed to class members in January and February 2017.

If you believe the frame of your vehicle is rusted, you should take it to an authorized Toyota dealer now.
