Class action filed over Toyota DPF issues

A class action lawsuit against Australia's best-selling car has been filed in the Federal Court, over issues with the diesel particulate filter in 2015-18 Toyota HiLux, Prado and Fortuner models fitted with a 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine. Originally announced in December, the lawsuit could involve more than 250,000 vehicles. The case against Toyota Australia alleges the diesel particulate filter fitted to the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder HiLux, Prado and Fortuner is defective.

That said, the gap between passenger cars — sedans, hatches, wagons, coupes, convertibles and people-movers — and higher-riding SUVs has been narrowing, so this development was just a matter of time.
