Toyota pays more than $1bn over car faults

Category : Business

Largest settlement in US history involving car defects must now be approved by a judge

The Toyota car company has agreed to pay over $1bn to settle claims that its cars could unintentionally accelerate out of control. A judge must approve Toyota’s offer of $1.1bn (£683m) which was filed in a Californian court on Wednesday.

Toyota was taken to court by owners of its cars who claimed there was an electronic fault in the acceleration system. Toyota said any accelerator problems were caused by driver error, pedals sticking or badly fitted mats. The settlement means Toyota does not admit blame and avoids a lengthy trial.

The deal includes payments to customers as well as installation of a brake override system which prevents unintentional acceleration in about 3.25m vehicles. The terms include a $250m fund for former Toyota owners who sold vehicles at reduced prices because of adverse publicity, and a separate $250m fund for owners not eligible for the brake override system. Lawyers will receive $200m in fees and $27m in costs.

Steve Berman, representing the car owners, said the settlement is the largest in American history involving car defects.

Toyota has recalled more than 14m vehicles worldwide due to acceleration problems in several models and brake defects with the Prius hybrid.

Has the Pinnacle reached its peak?

Category : Business

Owners of a partly built skyscraper planned to be London’s tallest face a winding-up order one year after work stopped

The owners of the Pinnacle – the partly built skyscraper that was planned as the tallest in the City of London – face a winding-up order that could see the site seized by the builders.

The ambitious £1bn project has been known as “the stump” since work stopped almost a year ago. Only the core of the first seven storeys has been built. Banks pulled the funding after the developer, Arab Investments, failed to secure a major tenant.

The high court has ordered the special purpose vehicles that own the scheme to pay £16m of unpaid fees to the main contractor, Brookfield Multiplex, after they failed to file a defence. The project is majority backed by a Saudi Arabian investment manager, Sedco, while the fund manager Pramerica also owns a stake. Brookfield has said it will launch insolvency proceedings against the owners if it does not receive payment by Friday. Other developers have circled the project in the hope of a sale.
