    Hey all - just found out about this, wanted to pass along the list of models with this stuff.

    Class action suit is because rodents think this stuff tastes like food, so they are attracted to it.

    List:

    • 2011-2016 4Runner
    • 2013 Avalon
    • 2012-2013 Camry Hybrid
    • 2009-2016 Camry
    • 2014 FJ Cruiser
    • 2010, 2015 Prius
    • 2012-2015 Prius C
    • 2012, 2015 Prius V
    • 2008-2016 Rav4

    Toyota Facing Class Action Over Soy-Based Wiring Insulation


    -Putting this here as the Tundra / Sequoia are my main point of interest, but obviously we have other subforums it would apply to but I rarely go beyond the 80's forum.

    Mods, if you rather it go to a more general forum feel free to 'tow it'.

    I saw a piece tonite on Seattle news, it seems many cars are getting eaten & shorts of electrical systems, etc. No to mention the added fun of baking rodent pee & droppings. I hear even cars parked in garages are getting hit in suburbs.

    The mechanic interviewed mentioned mothballs in a small plastic bag as a mitigating action - that was a new one to me. But it looks like my '68 Camaro isn't the only car I'll cram a box of Bounce dryer sheets in all the nooks & crannies.
