  • Prado 1KD-FTV Cracked Piston Class Action Is In The Pipeline.

    Hi Everyone. I hope you are well. Earlier this year my family and I fell victim to the cracked piston common issue which most of you are all too familer with. After much frustration with dealing with the manufacturer and retailer I decided to start a group which has had over 200 people join in the last 48 hours. The group can be joined only by those who own a Toyota with a 1KD-FTV Engine please help bring attention to our cause https://www.facebook.com/groups/175229933295296/ Please join the group if this has happened to you as I now have a litigation funding company which is happy to fund this class action. We need everyone who has experienced this issue and have been shunned by Toyota when requesting assistance.

    As many would be aware there is currently a crackdown on manufacturers in their treatment of consumers case in point the recent 10 million dollar fine to Ford over their treatment of consumers. My vehicle failed on a highway with trucks passing us at speeds of 100KM per hour and we had to wait for a tow truck for almost 2 hours. This is definately a safety concern precedented by the VW recall for their vehicles suddenly loosing power on the road causing the death of a driver.

    This has come to the point that law firms are seriously wanting to take it further however numbers are crucial which is why am making as many aware of this as possible. Please join the group the more in the group the more likely we will have success.

    Thank you.

    Hi Everyone. Just a quick update on the progress of this effort to push for a class action. We now have a funder who if all their criteria is met is willing to fund the claim and as of today there are potentially two law firms who are interested in looking further into the merit of the claim and yes the safety aspect does come into play. I can not divulge any names until the parties involved allow it however it is in everyone’s interest to share this page with as many as possible to reach people who have or could potentially be affected by this issue.https://www.facebook.com/groups/175229933295296/Baby steps at the moment but like everything in time the steps get bigger and quicker. Thank you for your support

      Do you have to have had a cracked piston or is this for all 1KD-FTV engines failed or not?

        I have just had a call from Toyota to say my 2010 gxl needs an engine replacement due to cracked piston. Where do I go from here I paid 24k for the car not to long ago and have had it on a tow truck twice in 2 weeks and now she is dead

          I havent heard anything else to be honest , not even on the Facebook site , which is usually the first place where you see rumours. Its been dragging on for a while now. In my own case i had a 2016 model which gave me plenty of grief so they replaced the whole car with a newbie , before i even went to take the matter further. So surely they can give people some new engines..

            I think the facebook group and likes is a lot of hot air and very little action so far. Doesnt seem to have any traction.

              Staceym91, look at d4dengines.com.au and take your car to a 'normal' mechanic. 24K is ridiculous. I'm in the same boat and should be able to get out of it for under 8k. Yours may be more or less depending on the extent of the damage inside the engine.

                I was under the impression that the 2014 versions had a re designed piston to stop this from happening is this not true.
                The reason i am asking is that i am looking at buying either a Prado GXL 2014 or new Fortuna GXL maybe next year.

                      After reading all the posts about injectors and holed pistons on here I rang CMI Toyota Adelaide to see if they'd been checking the injectors when servicing my Prado. It turns out that injector testing is not part of the normal service, is something that you have to ask for and costs more. So at 160,000km the state of my injectors is unknown. I have a test booked in at Hi Tech Diesel Injection in a couple of weeks. I have no reason to get a compression test but I'm guessing it would be a good idea.

                      I think Toyota just lost some servicing work as they must know about the issue but have never suggested that it would be a good idea. And they know the vehicle has done a fair amount of towing.

                        I avoid my local Toyota service department whenever possible. I've had too many bad experiences over the years. Find someone you can trust and you can actually talk to the mechanic.

                          My 2011 Prado is at Toyota in Perth with cracked No2 piston. I have been quoted $17500 for replacement engine. I have 205k on the clock with 60k of that towing 2.2t van.
                          Has Toyota recalled or reimbursed any one for this fault?

                            Unusual, it's usually number 3 or 4. Just went through same issue in Perth. $17500 Toyota long engine with injectors and turbo installed.

                            Would be interesting to know, 10 years old I don't fancy my chances.

                              I have put in my claim. Looks like Toyota are coming to the party in different ways. Some are getting short motor no labour. Some are getting long motor ! I have joined the Facebook site and there’s plenty of examples of compensation.
