Bluetooth Echo
Toyota owners who have purchased a car with Bluetooth may be unable to make calls due to a severe echo. Toyota has known about this issue for years. Do you own a Toyota (2015-present day) and have experienced this?

You may have a case if the following is true:


You own a Toyota made between 2015 to present.


When using the Bluetooth, you or people on the other end of the phone call have experienced echoing during calls.


The defect renders phone calls unclear.

Case Information

1. The Problem

When consumers buy a car with a Bluetooth hands-free phone system they expect that they will be able to rely on it to make and receive calls. In fact, a working Bluetooth system is so important that many consumers wouldn’t buy a car without one. But lots of Toyota owners have learned that when they use their Bluetooth to make or receive calls, the person on the other end hears a severe echo making the call difficult or impossible.

As a result, these Toyota owners are left with a car that they wouldn’t have bought had they known about this defect. Although Toyota doesn’t inform consumers about it before they buy the car, Toyota has known about if for over ten years. They bury the information deep in their Owner’s Manuals, but these aren’t provided to consumers until after they buy their car.

2. Our Involvement

This practice is unfair and deceptive, and Toyota should make consumers aware of the defective Bluetooth systems before they buy. The Law Office of Richard S. Cornfeld, LLC has brought a lawsuit against Toyota over this practice.
