Class Action Prompts Recall of 242,000 Toyota Prius and Lexus Models

TORONTO, June 5, 2013 /CNW/ - Toyota Motor Corp. today announced a recall of 242,000 Prius and Lexus hybrid vehicles due to braking system defects.

Merchant Law Group LLP has been pursuing Canada-wide class action lawsuits against Toyota since early 2010 seeking financial compensation and safety repairs for Prius/Lexus hybrid vehicles owners due to problems with their braking systems.

"Today's recall appears to be a good initial step in terms of Toyota recognizing the safety concerns of certain Prius and Lexus braking systems but there are many issues that will still need to be addressed through our class action lawsuits, including compensation for Prius and Lexus vehicle owners." stated Tony Merchant, Q.C. earlier today.
