    Hi, I bought my car on March 2015, I don’t know if the previous owner did any thing about the ECU, how I can find out that and if I didn’t what you advice me to do I don’t have any documents about this case.

    ADMIN – Hi Sawsan,

    Contact the dealership or check the maintenance records.

      Hi, I bought my car from auction , How I can get the maintenance records to check it.
      Thank you

      ADMIN – Hi Sawsan,

      Your best bet will be to have it re-tuned and assume it was never done. That is, if the car is giving you problems.

    we have always bought a Toyota, I have owned several corolla and 4 runner and camry we have had problems with some of the vehicles I would like to know if we are considered in any of them. our camry had so many recalls and problems

    ADMIN – Hi Anita,

    If your car is a part of the class as listed in the eligibility requirements and it had repairs associated to power steering you may qualify.

  5. Lulu Davies says:

    I have a Toyota 2004. Does this apply to me?

    ADMIN – Hi Lulu,
    Class Members of the Toyota Corolla class action settlement include current and former owners of model year 2009 and 2010 Toyota Corolla vehicles (excluding XRS grade).

    Since your car is a 2004 we can safely assume that it does not apply to you.

  6. Max Schreck says:

    Unbelievable… Seriously whats wrong with you people and these comments. “I have a 2004” obviously you do not possess the super power of literacy.

    Just do away with the comment section.

    ADMIN – Hi Max,

    Without the comment section we would never know about visitors like you that can in fact read. Thanks for stopping by.

    Pls. reply with a link on “How to Check”


    ADMIN – Hi Grace,

    The deadline for this settlement has passed. You no longer have legal recourse.

  9. Ingrid Costell says:

    The only way to file the claim by mail. Your phone and website do not work?

    ADMIN – Hi Ingrid,

    The reason the website does not work is because the deadline for this case has passed.

  10. Robert Bohman says:

    It is after the deadline and was not aware of this issue until today when our power steering failed while driving down the freeway. Toyota dealership service department says they are not aware of any recalls or covered repairs for such a problem. Is there a remedy for addressing this problem when a failure occurs after the deadline date? Vehicle is a 2010 Corolla.

    ADMIN – Hi Robert,

    Not that I know about it.

  11. Jose says:

    Why Toyota is not doing anything to help us to fix the problem is very serious issue when you are driving on the freeway like I did scary I asked at lees for a discount at the dealer so they can fix it hope the do.

  12. Ken says:

    Would be nice to know if this subject crossed over to cover 2006-2012 RAV4s. Problem is the same. Column configuration is almost identical. I’m looking at a $2,900 bill to replace the steering column. Toyota charges almost $2,200 for the part.

  13. linda awalsh says:

    How about a class action for poorly engineered front ends: bumper cracked, black panels just above lost part on bumper are falling out? Plus, head rest is beyond uncomfortable and a friend had hers removed. And a major pain is hub caps falling off and Toyota wants $180 for EACH replacement. Always visit junkyards for hubcaps. Was quoted half the price. Lastly, Toyota attempted to low-ball me, I was savvy though.
