Toyota Automobile Soy-Based Car Components – Class Action Investigation
C&T is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against Toyota relating to its use of soy-based materials in the automobile manufacturing process. Specifically, certain Toyota automobiles are reportedly built with a number of soy-based components or parts, including soy-covered or soy-based wiring, wire connectors, air filters, air bags, and other under-the-hood components or parts. These soy-based parts can attract rodents. It has been reported that rodents have chewed through and damaged these soy-based parts in these vehicles, resulting in costly repairs to vehicle owners. It has also been reported that Toyota will not cover the cost of rodent-related damage and repairs.
