CHICAGO – A man has filed a class action lawsuit against Toyota after it disabled support for an interactive feature for which he paid an additional cost.
Raymond Auyeung, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Dec. 6 in Cook County Circuit Court against Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. over alleged violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, Auyeung and the class of consumers paid a significant amount on top of the purchase price of their Toyota vehicles to equip the vehicles with an Entune Premium System. The suit states the plaintiff was promised this system would allow him to use software applications such as Pandora and Facebook Places.
However, after plaintiff and the class paid the extra fee, defendant Toyota allegedly discontinued and eliminated support for the applications they were promised to receive.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for actual and compensatory damages, restitution and such other relief as the court deems reasonable and just. He is represented by Eugene Y. Turin and David L. Gerbie of McGuire Law PC in Chicago.
