Is there a lawsuit involving defective Toyota 4Runners?

Yes. The ongoing lawsuit against Toyota Motor Corporation was filed by Gary Weinreich in December of 2018 because of the issue of premature rust corrosion of these vehicles' frames, and more and more displeased 4Runner owners are joining it with each passing month.

You can actually file a claim to recover compensation if you have a defective 4Runner

What prompted Gary Weinreich to file a federal class-action lawsuit against Toyota Motor Corporation was the accident he went through in the first half of 2018, when the front steering control arm of his 4Runner broke off, causing him to run off the road. The accident occurred because the frame of his automobile had excessive rust corrosion, which is the defect all the other plaintiffs in the lawsuit had to face on their 4Runners from the 4th generation. It is worthy of note that in 2016, Toyota had another class-action lawsuit filed against it, for the same reason, this time involving their Tacomas, Sequoias, and Tundras. It was settled for $3.4 billion in 2020.

Because Toyota Motor Corporation remains adamant and refuses to admit to any wrongdoing, the numerous plaintiffs led by Weinreich will most likely recover the compensation they are entitled to. If your 4Runner has premature rusting on the undercarriage, we encourage you to reach out to our attorneys, who will assist you with filing a claim with the company, as driving your vehicle with this issue can lead to terrible accidents. The money you will obtain will help you have the frame of your 4Runner replaced free of charge by Toyota.
