Acura RDX, MDX and TLX Transmission and Infotainment System Defects

Acura is facing multiple class action suits regarding Acura MDX, Acura RDX, and Acura TLX models, along with several models from its sibling brand, Honda

One suit alleges the following transmission problems:

  • Jerking
  • Slipping
  • Hesitation
  • Banging into gear
  • Stalling
  • Transmission failure

These issues relate to the same ZF 9 SPEED TRANSMISSION which has been the subject of CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS in other vehicles.   

In another class action, these vehicles are alleged to have a defective infotainment system (including the backup camera) which behaves erratically, malfunctioning, freezing, and creating a safety hazard and distraction. 

Additionally these vehicles have had other vexing issues such as problems with the electrical system, including a failure of the collision mitigation braking system (causing spontaneous braking), and failure of other driver safety or convenience features, including the automatic sliding doors. 

Remember, under the right circumstances, class actions can either help and hurt the value of your individual claim. In most cases where lemon law rights are released in a class action settlement, your individual lemon law claim is more valuable than the class settlement proceeds, which may only be for a coupon toward a new purchase or an “extended warranty.” 

Even worse, auto manufacturers often place time limits or other restrictions on the class settlement proceeds that prevent people from receiving anything in exchange for their released claims. 

On the other hand, if you have a good lemon law claim you may be entitled to receive all your money back, or more.   

The FOUNDER OF OUR FIRM used to work in-house for auto makers, which can be a big advantage in these cases.  There is a FEE SHIFTING PROVISION in the law which allows us to take cases free of charge to you.  If you have a good case we will front the costs and our time, and we only get paid by the manufacturer if we achieve a recovery for you. 

If you have questions about a class action, or you think you may have a lemon, contact us today for a fast, free and confidential evaluation.

Update – Nissan Altima Class Action – IMPORTANT DEADLINES APPROACHING

We previously wrote about issues we were seeing with Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) in Nissan vehicles, including Nissan Altima, and developing class actions.  (Read more here.)

To update on Nissan Altima specifically, as we had predicted, a class action settlement has been approved by a federal district court in the matter of Christopher Gann, et al. v. Nissan North America, Inc., Case No. 3:18-cv-00966.

Most people do not realize that if you are a class member in a settlement like this and you take no action, you may be unintentionally losing the ability to bring valuable claims.

In this case, if you do not opt out of the class settlement you may lose the ability to get all your money back in exchange for the right to claim a warranty extension, reimbursement for repairs, and a $1,000.00 coupon toward a new Nissan purchase.

Even worse, if you do nothing, you may lose your individual rights and also miss the deadline to make a claim under the settlement.   Remember, you must take specific steps in order to opt out of the settlement.    If you do not, you are automatically considered a party to the settlement–even if you get nothing for it.  

DEADLINE TO OPT OUT: FEBRUARY 7, 2020

DEADLINE TO MAKE A CLAIM: JANUARY 30, 2020

We always recommend that you take care to understand a class action that may affect your rights.   Even if you decide to remain in the settlement and make a claim, it pays to make an informed decision.

If you would like help with the analysis of your potential claims, please contact us for a fast, free and confidential evaluation.

Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon – Lemon Law Issues

lemon Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck

We have noticed a trend in potential lemon law issues in recent model year Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon trucks.  The current version of these mid-size pickup trucks was launched for model year 2015.

Many of these trucks have exhibited transmission problems, with the following descriptions:

Sluggish Hesitation
Will not downshift Losing ability to drive forward (reverse only)
Stuck in gear Transmission failure
Chugging

There have also been other noted problems in these trucks, especially with the power steering, engine, fuel system and exhaust system, among others.  

Additionally, there have been Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) and Recalls issued which affect these concerns, and prove that GM is aware of them.  

You may have lemon law rights if you have had as few as two complaints for these issues, or for any other problems.  

Those rights survive even if you no longer have the truck.  

If you think your truck may be a lemon, contact us today for a fast, free and confidential analysis.
