i did my rear brake pads and after a check the vsc system sign came on along with the abs light and brake light, not to mention the brake system didn't quell properly and an annoying tone.
After doing some research found out that this is a common problem and you end coming too the dealership to fix it and of course they charge you. Something seems fishy
You changed your own pads, right? You can guess what Toyota would say.....
General rule: no damages = no suit.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE, NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE ATTACHES, FOR INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY IN THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights.

no you cannot sue Toyota for not issuing a recall. You can sue Toyota for a defective product which causes injuries,
Automakers issue recalls when a car is potentially unsafe, not because repairs are beyond the ability of consumers.
There is nothing that requires them to build a car that you can fix yourself. If there was an unsafe condition, it was caused by your repairs, not a fault of Toyota.
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship. You should always consult PRIVATELY with an attorney.
