Nevada Receiving $1.4M In Toyota Settlement

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada is getting about $1.4 million in a multi-state settlement with Toyota over problems with accelerator pedals.

State Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto announced Thursday that Nevada would be getting part of a $29 million pot split among 29 different states and one U.S. territory.

The money will go the state’s general fund, and the Legislature can determine how to use it.

State attorney generals argued that Toyota failed to disclose dangerous safety defects with its accelerator pedals in a timely fashion.

Masto said an investigation pinpointed poor communication between Toyota locations in Japan and in the U.S.

Toyota released a statement vowing to make vehicle information more accessible to customers.
