Finkelstein & Krinsk Brings National Class Action Against Toyota For Inadequately Designed Low-Pressure Fuel Pump In Flagship Vehicles

SAN DIEGO, April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Finkelstein & Krinsk LLP, a nationally recognized California based class action law firm, announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit against Toyota Motor North America, Inc., Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc., and Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing, Inc. (“Toyota Defendants”) on behalf of lessees and purchasers of certain Toyota/Lexus vehicles equipped with an allegedly inadequately designed Denso low-pressure fuel pump. The lawsuit asserts that the Toyota Defendants were aware the fuel pump was defective and concealed the information from the public, continuing to tout the safety and reliability and inducing consumers nationwide to purchase or lease affected Lexus/Toyota vehicles.

We believe the defect in the fuel-pump manifests when the impeller absorbs fuel and deforms, causing the pump to misfeed fuel to the engine and resulting in unintended acceleration/deceleration and stalling at high-speeds. The defect raises a substantial safety issue as sudden power fluctuation increases the likelihood of accidents. To date, the Toyota Defendants have issued a recall but are unable to deploy a repair for the putative defect.

The following list of Lexus/Toyota vehicles are involved:
