Judge: Toyota not responsible for rats eating wire insulation

Recommended Posts

One of the odder cases to come across the bench was filed in August 2016, a class action suit from angry owners who believed rats had eaten through engine wiring because rodents were attracted to Toyota’s soy-based insulation.

The judge denied the case because of lack of specificity, since some of the damage was to parts of the car not made with soy.

Vintage car owners have long known that rats and mice are attracted to car wiring and other parts, regardless of when it was made or what it was made from; though it seems like making insulation with “food” would make it more attractive to rodents, it doesn’t appear as though there was any evidence to support that conclusion.
