This Alert Affects
Anyone who owns a 2008 – 2012 Toyota Highlander XU20, Toyota Highlander XU40, Highlander Hybrid MHU28 or Toyota Highlander XU50.
Why Is Toyota Getting Sued?
It has been alleged that Toyota knowingly sold cars with defective rear power doors (also called liftgates). Consumers have spent thousands fixing these doors and are now looking to get their money back.
What Is a Liftgate?
Toyota Highlanders are fitted with automatic trunk doors (the door that rises up at the very back of the vehicle). The company calls these doors "liftgates," which can be operated at the push of a button.
