Toyota Prius Hybrid Inverter/IPM Defect


Fazio | Micheletti LLP has filed a class-action lawsuit alleging that Toyota fraudulently concealed the existence of a defect in the inverters and Intelligent Power Modules (IPM) it installed in 2010 through 2016 model-year Prius hybrids, and that it perpetuated the cover-up with a recall in early 2014 that did not solve the problem.


We continue to investigate complaints from consumers who have experienced a problem -- including, but not limited to, problems involving poor gas mileage and sluggish engine performance after a software update that Toyota performs on these vehicles, which remain at risk of suddenly and unexpectedly stalling at high speed -- or going into "limp home mode" and losing power-assisted steering and brakes.


If you own a 2010 through 2016 model-year Prius hybrid, please contact us. You can reach us by submitting the form on our Contact page or by sending us an email message that includes a brief description of your experience and the best way we can reach you.
