Lieff Cabraser is investigating reports that Hino Motors and majority Hino owner Toyota Motor Corporation (the Japanese parent of Toyota North America) have publicly admitted to intentionally cheating on their bus and truck vehicles’ emissions. The reports indicate that Hino manipulated the electronic emissions control systems in certain of its vehicles to overstate their advertised fuel economy and obtain fraudulent emissions certifications. You can read a copy of a recently published story on the matter from TheTruthAboutCars.com.
If you own or lease a Hino/Toyota bus or truck and would like more information about our investigation, as well as to learn about your rights and potential recovery from the alleged fraud by Hino, please contact us today for a free, no-obligation review of your Hino emissions fraud case. The information you provide will assist us in holding Hino and Toyota accountable for deceptive practices relating to emissions and fuel economy fraud from these or any other Hino vehicles.
