Defective Automobile

2017 Honda Civic

One day in November 2017, plaintiff Sheryl Tenzyk started her 2016 Honda Civic, then went back into her house to get something. When she came out, she found that her car had rolled down her driveway, across the street, and into a neighbor’s yard. On the way, it hit a cable pole and damaged its bumper. The complaint for this class action claims that Honda knew about the defect in the car that made it prone to roll away but did nothing to correct it.

CP4 Fuel Pump

Differences in US and European gasoline are at the heart of this class action. The complaint alleges that the CP4 fuel pump does not receive enough lubrication from US gas and that the pump’s creators and the auto makers who used it in their vehicles knew it. In fact, it claims that the use of the pumps amounts to a Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act conspiracy, in addition to other violations of the law. 

Temsa TS45 Motor Coach

The complaint alleges that buses sold by Temsa North America, Inc. are defective and unfit for their purported purpose, because their systems fail too often and they require too much repair and replacement to be feasible as part of a regular bus fleet.

2014 Nissan Altima

Nissan Altima 2013-2014vehicles contain defective continuously variable automatic transmissions (CVTs). The complaint for this class action claims that the CVTs are defective, however, and lead to shuddering, slowing, and stopping on the road and eventual transmission failure. 

2015 Honda CR-V

Honda is settling a class action alleging that it sold 2015 CR-V vehicles without disclosing to buyers that the car vibrates unpleasantly in certain driving modes.

2015 GMC Sierra 2500 Truck

Do you own or lease a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 light-duty truck or a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500, 2500, or 3500 truck? Are you finding that the headlights don’t put out enough light at night, particularly in dark areas? Have you been unable to get a real fix for this problem from General Motors (GM)?

2018 Honda Civic

When Honda announced its new VTEC Turbo direct-injection engine in 2013, it touted it as a next-generation powertrain technology that provides a high level of fuel economy. But the complaint for this class action claims that it has a serious flaw: It allows fuel to migrate and mix with the oil, lowering the oil’s viscosity, increasing friction, and eventually possibly damaging the engine. 

Ford F-150 Truck

Do you own a Ford F-150? If so, you’re not alone. The F-150 is the best-selling vehicle line in the country—which makes it all the more unnerving that certain ones are catching fire due to a defect related to its seatbelts. 

2014 Volkswagen Beetle

A settlement has been reached in a class action alleging that certain Volkswagen and Audi vehicles had defective timing chains or timing chain tensioners. The complaint claimed that these parts can fail, requiring repair or replacement, and at times even cause problems with the engine, requiring repair or replacement of that as well. 

Silver 2014 Audi Q7 with Mountains in Background

Are brakes defective because they make a squealing noise when applied? If the brakes are installed as a replacement in a luxury vehicle, does that make a difference? The complaint for this class action claims that Audi installed replacement brakes in Audi Q7 vehicles that squeal when applied, and that that is not appropriate for a luxury SUV.
