Defective Automobile

2014 Nissan Altima

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?

Mercedes SL in Mars Red

Plainitff Emily Pinon bought a Mars Red 2015 Mercedes C250 in November 2016 which had fewer than 10,000 miles on it. But the complaint for this class action says that by early 2018, the paint had deteriorated so badly in at least one spot that it looked like the clear coat was bubbling and peeling. 

Tesla Model X

BMW 7 Series Car
