Consumers File Suit Against Honda for Sidelite Defect
Two consumers have filed a class action suit against American Honda Motor Company, Incorporated, saying that the window regulator in certain Honda cars is broken and ends up in the sidelite falling into the door frame or becoming stuck in the fully-open position.
Phyllis Grodzitsky of California, owner of a Honda Odyssey, and Jeremy Bordelon of Tennessee, owner of a Honda Component, allege that they reported repeated screw ups of window regulators in their vehicles. Grodzitsky further claims that she approached her local Honda service chief and claims she was told, "all [Honda Odysseys] have that problem."
"Honda knew of the window regulator defect, yet failed to disclose and hid the defect from class members and the public and Honda continued to market and misrepresent the class automobiles as 'reliable' and 'durable' vehicles, which they are not," reads the complaint.
The vehicle models in question include the Honda Odyssey, Pilot, Component, Accord, CR-V, Civic and Acura MDX between the years of 1994-2007. The complainants are requesting the court grant a trial by jury.
Honda officers hadn't yet answered to the complaint at press time.
