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.
