The lawsuit against Toyota and Southeast Toyota Distributors was originally filed in 2017, and included millions of 2012-2017 Camry and Camry Hybrid cars.. Owners of these defective Toyota Camry’s allege that the passenger compartment becomes filled with noxious fumes distributed by the HVAC system, due to moisture and subsequent bacterial growth.

Plaintiffs that brought the suit allege that the defendants,Toyota and SE Toyota Distributors, conspired to conceal these defects in the HVAC system and protect the Toyota brand.In addition, the lawsuit alleges the defendants conspired to overcharge Toyota Camry customers and avoid repairs and buybacks under Florida Lemon Law.  These allegations include violations of the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA) against Toyota and SETD.

Camry customers were allegedly told by Toyota Dealers that the smell occurred naturally, One example of a violation included Toyota distribution of a misleading Technical Service Bullet that dealers used to inform complaining owners that the odors were “naturally occurring and could not be repaired, under warranty or otherwise,” the 2018 suit alleged.Toyota and Southeast Toyota Distributors had filed a motion for dismissal once before in 2019, but the lawsuit survived then, as well.

    I having the problem with my car since may 2019 and the Toyota cannot find the issue. I have been there like so many times i’m tired of them to fix that. My car shuts down on the highway around like 80 MPH and the sometimes I feel jerks like transmission is trying to shift the gear but it’s slips but they are like we cannot go over 70 MPH so they also have tried that. But they they can’t find issue so I was if I die in the accident they will learn the lesson that the customers is always right.
