Toyota Automobile Blind Spot Monitoring System – Class Action Investigation
C&T is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against Toyota relating to its blind spot monitoring system (BSM System). Specifically, certain makes and models of Toyota automobiles such as the Toyota Sienna XLE are equipped with a safety related blind spot monitoring system that will alert drivers when vehicles or other objects are in the vehicle’s blind spot. It has been reported, however, that the at intermittent times, including while driving, the blind spot monitoring system will shut itself off and display a “check blind spot monitor system” error message on the console. When this happens, the blind spot monitoring system is disabled and cannot be turned back on unless or until the car is restarted. It has been reported that Toyota owners have spent money on costly repair visits in an attempt to fix this problem, and that Toyota has been unwilling to cover the cost of repair visits and unable to resolve the problem.
