Seven automakers and an auto parts supplier are at the center of a proposed class action lawsuit that claims they have failed to warn drivers about an alleged defect in the airbag deployment systems of more than 12.3 million cars.
In the wake of recalls and an investigation, another proposed class action claims Hyundai and Kia failed to act quick enough in addressing reports of GDI engine fires.
Two more consumers have sued Hyundai and Kia over the companies' allegedly inadequate handling of problems with their GDI engines.
Two consumers allege in a class action that recent Hyundai and Kia recalls of and repair options for vehicles with defective GDI engines are inadequate given the risk posed by the problem.
A class action says Hyundai and Kia owe consumers answers due to the propensity of certain allegedly defective engines to spontaneously combust during normal use.
A suit recently removed to CA fed. court claims the alleged defect can cause the engines to 'lose power, make noise, develop engine knock, misfire and/or stall.'
Hyundai and Kia face more litigation over their Theta II engine that allegedly suffers from a crippling defect.
