Statement in Response to Filing of Multidistrict Litigation Class Action Complaint

August 03, 2010
Toyota looks forward to defending against the allegations made in the plaintiffs’ consolidated complaint.

Toyota has identified two specific mechanical causes of potential unintended acceleration in some of its vehicles and has moved decisively to address these issues with effective and durable solutions.  Toyota rejects claims that plaintiffs suffered economic damages because of the recent recalls.

Importantly, to date, plaintiffs have not cited a specific cause that would support their claim of a defect in Toyota’s Electronic Throttle Control System, and no credible scientific theory or proof has been advanced to support this allegation.  Toyota firmly believes that the system is completely safe and that reliable scientific evidence will demonstrate the safety of our vehicles in the investigations currently underway and, ultimately, to the court.
