On August 19, 2022, Plaintiff Sharlene Shu, represented by Gutride Safier LLP, filed a class action lawsuit against Toyota for violating state and federal laws. In particular, Toyota advertises, markets, and promotes the Adaptive Headlight feature on its 2022 RAV4 vehicles. The class action lawsuit alleges false and misleading advertisement because even when consumers purchase an upgraded Toyota RAV4 vehicle with the premium package, which includes the Adaptive Headlight feature, and also have the Monroney sticker indicating the Adaptive Headlight feature, consumers have found that their RAV4 vehicles in fact do not have the Adaptive Headlight feature.
The case, Shu v. Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc. et al., Case No. 3:22-cv-04661 in the Northern District of California, is ongoing.
