Defective Automobile

GM 2016 Silverado Truck

This is one of several recent class actions brought against General Motors for the use of Bosch’s CP4 fuel pumps in diesel vehicles. The complaint alleges that the CP4 cannot work properly with American diesel fuel, which does not provide enough lubrication. The result is eventual failures requiring the replacement of the fuel system.

Hog Wild Truck

This class action is about tires made by Kumho Tire USA, Inc. and installed on Hyundai trucks. The complaint claims that the Kumho and Hyundai knew about the problems yet refused to replace the tires. 

2019 GMC Yukon SUV

Auto defects can be both costly and dangerous for consumers. The complaint for this class action alleges that certain recent General Motors (GM) vehicles have a transmission defect that is uncomfortable while it’s occurring and that over time degrades or ruins the transmission and other vehicle parts. 

Toyota 2011 4Runner

The frame of the Toyota 4Runner is the vehicle’s main support structure, to which all other pieces are attached. In an accident, it’s a primary protection against injury. But the complaint for this class action claims that Toyota did not adequately treat 4Runner frames during manufacturing for model years 2005 to 2011, so that they are excessively susceptible to rust. 

Porsche Panamera

A defect in the cooling system in certain Porsche vehicles can lead to sudden failure and complete loss of vehicle power, according to the complaint for this class action. This can be extremely dangerous, particularly if the car is traveling at high speeds on highways at the time. What makes it worse, the complaint claims, is that Porsche has known of this defect for more than ten years. 

2016 Silverado Truck

This California class action is at least the third complaint filed against an automobile manufacturer concerning the Bosch CP4 diesel fuel pump. A long list of plaintiffs files this complaint against General Motors (GM), alleging that the fuel pump was a “ticking time bomb” that simply cannot operate properly with American diesel fuel standards, leading to abrupt and potentially dangerous shutoff of the vehicle’s engine.

2015 Jeep Cherokee

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles US, LLC is settling a class action concerning its model-year 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee, 2015 Jeep Renegade, 2015 Chrysler 200, and 2015 ProMaster City vehicles.

Ford 2018 Truck

The complaint for this class action claims that the Bosch CP4 fuel pump begins damaging American vehicles from the very first tank of gas. Ford has used this fuel pump in many of its diesel trucks, but the complaint claims that American gasoline standards don’t allow the pump the lubrication it needs.

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.
