Defective Automobile

Ford F-150 Truck

This class action alleges that Ford has equipped its 2017-2020 F-150 trucks with a defective transmission system—the 10R80 ten-speed automatic transmission. The complaint is mostly the same as one filed four days earlier on the same topic, but this case is for truck owners or lessees in Pennsylvania, while the earlier one is for those in Massachusetts.

Ford F-150 Truck

The Ford F-Series pickup trucks have been the best-selling pickups in the US for the past forty-two years. The complaint for this class action, however, alleges that the 10R80 ten-speed automatic transmission in 2017-2020 Ford F-150 trucks is defective and can pose safety issues.

Navistar Truck

Navistar International Corporation and Navistar, Inc. have agreed to settle a class action about their 2011-2014 trucks equipped with MaxxForce 11- or 13-liter diesel engines. The complaint alleged that the trucks had defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) emissions systems that produced more soot and heat than engine components could handle, leading to failure of the components.

2019 Subaru Forester

When auto companies know about a dangerous defect in their vehicles, they are supposed to recall the vehicles and fix the problem. The complaint for this class action alleges that certain Subaru vehicles have defective windshields that spontaneously crack, chip, or break, and that when customers bring their vehicles in, the windshields are replaced with the same type of defective windshields. 

2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty

The complaint for this class action brings up the problem of the Bosch CP4 high-pressure fuel injection pump, which is supposedly “standard in 2011-present Ford Super Duty diesel trucks, and which unbeknownst to consumers is incompatible with American diesel fuel.” The complaint alleges that with this pump, metal rubs against metal, distributing metal shards throughout the fuel delivery system until it fails.

Sometimes technology that’s meant to increase automobile safety and prevent accidents can instead malfunction and risk causing accidents. The complaint for this class action brings suit against Mazda Motor Corporation (MMC) and Mazda Motor of America (which does business as Mazda North American Operations, or MNAO), claiming that their Smart City Brake Support or Smart Brake Support systems are defective and can malfunction.

2019 Audi A1

This class action brings suit against Volkswagen Group of America and Volkswagen AG, which may have tried to make up for their part in the emissions scandal by offering a longer warranty than other companies. However, the complaint alleges that the company is not properly honoring this warranty, by refusing to cover repairs for leaking sunroofs and by not offering a permanent, warranty-supported fix for the problem.

Model Year 2020 Acura MDX

When you’re driving at high speeds, you rely on your car’s dependability to keep you safe. However, the complaint for this class action alleges that 2016-2020 Acura MDX and RDX models from American Honda Motor Company, Inc. have a defect that makes them sometimes decelerate, stall, shut down, and then resume operation, endangering the driver, the passengers, and the vehicles around them.

2006 Land Rover Range Rover

Jaguar Land Rover North American, LLC is settling a class action alleging its Land Rover Range Rovers for model years 2003 through 2006 have defective front air springs in the electronic air suspension. The complaint alleged that these air springs can crack or fail, which can cause a loss of air pressure, and that owners and lessees have had to pay to replace them.

FCA Dodge Ram Truck

Two issues are argued in this class action against FCA US, LLC and Olathe Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram. One is a breach of warranty claim for a “manifold bolt issue.” The other concerns the requirements to maintain a “lifetime” warranty, which the complaint alleges are concealed from customers so they allow the warranty to become invalid.
