However, this protection becomes abusive in according to which countries and cases. united States is one that the greater the protection it provides to their consumers, however this greater protection often becomes a real headache for brands.
In this case Toyota has been the will have to go to court on a complaint of a consumer. Janice Toler filed a class action lawsuit against Toyota at the beginning of this week after the brand refused to repair under warranty the damage that had been caused a rat the wiring of your Rav4. The bill amounts to a total of $ 5,500 and the owner of the vehicle tainted by this rodent does not agree that she need to take care of the repair.
As reported, signature japanese used to coat the wiring of his car a plastic made from soybeans. As it is obvious rats and mice when you have discovered this source of power have gone mad. The result, that this lady has gone without wiring and with a car damaged by, according to her, this recklessness of the brand. However, this situation is much more normal than it seems since these little and annoying creatures are able to eat almost anything and therefore would like the type of coating which will carry these cables.
Toyota, in its programme to improve the world and prevent pollution decided a while ago to include in their cars greater number of recycled materials. Among these materials are derived from soy and other plants such as hemp. Thanks to its employment have diminished the ecological footprint of its models to the couple that have reduced the weight of vehicles by including them in seats, dashboards and floors insulation.
