US lawsuits batter Toyota

Millions of car owners seek compensations over faulty parts in a federal court.

    Toyota - the world's largest carmaker - may have to face the largest lawsuit in  US history.

    Just months after the company had to recall millions of automobiles over faulty parts, millions of Toyota car owners in the US are now seeking compensations for damages in court.

    A federal court in California is deciding on whether all the cases should be consolidated into a single class-action lawsuit.
