CASE UPDATES

Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra
Rusted Frame Settlement

Blood Hurst & O’Reardon has 
reached a $3.4 billion settlement 
to have the frames of certain Toyota Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra vehicles 
inspected for excessive rust corrosion. Corroded frames are dangerous 
and must be replaced, so we urge 
all class members to have their 
vehicles inspected. When excessive
rust corrosion is found, Toyota will 
replace the frame. The vehicles 
covered are 2005-2010 Tacomas, 
2007-2008 Tundras and 2005-2008 Sequoias. Inspections and frame replacements are at no charge to 
vehicle owners and lessees.

What the Settlement Provides

The settlement creates a $1.25 million settlement fund to reimburse Class Members 100% of their Advantage membership fees. If funds remain after all timely valid claims are paid, Class Members will receive additional money up to 3 times the amount of their refunded fees.

Active will also donate Advantage memberships worth $1.75 million to under-resourced groups in California. Active will also pay for attorneys’ fees and costs up to $800,000, notice and claim administration costs, and a plaintiff service award.

Additional details are in the settlement agreement and class notice, including the opt out and objection dates and the final approval procedure.
