Toyota Camry & Lexus ES Moldy Air Conditioner (AC) Canadian Class Action


CONSUMER LAW GROUP is investigating a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Toyota Canada Inc. over its defective Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system that accumulate mold and mildew, spewing noxious, foul, and unpleasant odors throughout the vehicles any time the air system is in use.

The vehicles at issue include:

• 2012-2017 Toyota Camry & Camry Hybrid
• 2013-2017 Lexus ES series

The class action is based on the allegations that the design of the HVAC systems in the Toyota Camry & Camry Hybrid and Lexus ES Series vehicles are defective in that:

1. They lack efficient drainage and contain nooks and crevices that can form ideal habitats for biological matter growth;

2. The warm, humid, dark crevices present inside these HVAC systems may harbor organic matter;

3. The foam material design used around the evaporator also has several crevices and inherent porosity that may harbor moisture and growth;

4. The steps at the bottom of the evaporator housing create obstacles for efficient drainage and the sharp corners create crevices for contaminants; and

5. The minimal drain slope of the sump section under the evaporator housing does not allow for efficient drainage of water that is not only essential for minimizing moisture but also necessary to help clean and flush contaminants with the condensed water.

The result of the above design flaws is that the HVAC systems allows for condensing water to accumulate and naturally present organic contaminants to be trapped, thereby causing strong unpleasant fumes and odors to be emitted.

A similar class action lawsuit was certified (click here to read the Judgment) in California for 2012-2015 Toyota Camry XV 50 models. Another similar class action lawsuit is pending (click here to read the Complaint) in Florida for 2012-2017 Toyota Camry & Camry Hybrid vehicles.

The lawsuit investigation is being pursued on behalf of all residents in Canada who have purchased or leased model years 2012-2017 Toyota Camry & Camry Hybrid and model years 2013-2017 Lexus ES series.
