Toyota has admitted to emissions cheating in gasoline and diesel engines used in Toyota forklifts sold in Japan, spanning more than a decade. The misconduct is believed to affect not only emissions but also vehicle performance and durability. Lieff Cabraser’s consumer fraud group is actively investigating similar allegations about Toyota’s forklifts in the U.S., where sales for several Toyota forklift models have previously been suspended due to delays in obtaining U.S. engine emissions certification.
