The National Law Journal reports, “Toyota Motor Corp. and its U.S. subsidiaries agreed to pay $29 million to resolve investigations by attorneys general in 29 states into whether it misled consumers about the safety of its vehicles.” The Journal continues, “The investigations followed recalls of more than 10 million vehicles for defects associated with sudden acceleration. They focused on whether Toyota had misled consumers about safety problems in models including the Camry, Lexus, Tundra, Tacoma and Prius hybrid. The states and the U.S. territory of American Samoa will split the money. The settlement sets aside an additional $5 million for customers who had to pay for rental cars or taxi fares while their cars were being repaired.”
