The Toyota class action claims compensation for defects in Toyota Hilux, Fortuner and Prado vehicles with a 1GD-FTV or 2GD-FTV diesel engine acquired between 1 October 2015 and 23 April 2020 in Australia.
On 16 May 2022, the Federal Court of Australia delivered an important judgment in favour of the applicants and group members. Toyota appealed this judgment and on 27 March 2023, the Full Court of the Federal Court of Australia delivered judgment in respect of Toyota’s appeal.
In April 2023, the applicants and Toyota both applied to the High Court of Australia for leave to appeal parts of the Full Court’s judgment concerning the reduction in value damages to which group members may be entitled. The High Court will decide whether to grant the parties leave to appeal the Full Court’s judgment and, if leave is granted, determine any such appeal. This process is unlikely to conclude before mid-2024.
IMPORTANT: All Group Members who wish to receive compensation to which they may become entitled in the Toyota Class Action must register their interest in doing so on the Group Member Portal (managed by Deloitte) by clicking the ‘Register for Compensation’ button below (including those Group Members who previously subscribed for updates on this website).
Group members who have already submitted their registration forms do not need to do anything else at this stage.
