Dodge Ram, Jeep Grand Cherokee Suspension Problems
We have a couple of new investigations on our hands as attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into possible defects in a few different vehicle models. First up, certain Dodge Ram and Jeep Grand Cherokee drivers say they’ve been having problems with the air suspensions in their vehicles. Then, the Uconnect systems in 2017 and later Jeep, Dodge and Chrysler vehicles have reportedly been plagued by “delamination,” which can cause the units to fail completely. More information on both investigations can be found below, as well as stories on two recently filed lawsuits involving Zarbee’s melatonin supplements and the environmental impact of Kirkland Signature canned tuna, respectively. Keep reading for the latest.
If you own or lease a 2013-2020 Dodge Ram 1500 or 2011-2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and have been having trouble with the air suspension, you aren’t alone. A slew of drivers have posted complaints online saying that their air suspension collapsed and completely failed, leading to traction loss and an incredibly bumpy ride – and attorneys working with ClassAction.org suspect a defect is to blame. They are now looking into whether they can file a class action lawsuit to help drivers get money back for past repairs and potentially force the manufacturer to recall the cars and offer a free fix. But first, the attorneys need to speak to drivers to learn more about the problem. So, if you own or lease a 2013-2020 Dodge Ram 1500 or 2011-2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and have had issues with your air suspension, find out how you could help get a lawsuit started right here.
Car trouble can be stressful even when the problem doesn’t come from under the hood. In this case, some drivers are reporting that the Uconnect “infotainment” systems in their 2017 and later Jeep, Dodge and Chrysler vehicles have been suffering from delamination. Specifically, several reports have mentioned that a bubble developed underneath the outer layer of the screen and that applications on the unit – such as the radio and GPS – stopped working properly. Now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether a defect is to blame and whether a class action lawsuit could be filed to help drivers get money back for repairs and potentially force the automaker to offer a fix for the problem.

Much like the case filed against Olly back in June, a new lawsuit accuses Zarbee’s of misrepresenting how much melatonin is in its children’s gummy sleep supplements. According to the new lawsuit, lab testing has revealed that Zarbee’s melatonin gummies were “substantially (and seemingly randomly) overdosed,” with the plaintiff’s bottle coming in at 216 percent of the amount listed on the label. The lawsuit reasons that since the company reportedly tests the melatonin content before distribution, it must know about the issue yet has decided to sell the overdosed supplements anyway. This is a problem given that melatonin is commonly self-prescribed, and its use, including in children, has become “increasingly popular,” according to the complaint. Higher doses of melatonin aren’t without their side effects, which may include headaches, dizziness, nausea or excessive drowsiness. Want more? You can read up on the allegations here.
While not everyone is willing to go too far out of their way to be environmentally conscious, most of us would buy the more environmentally friendly of two products if they were offered at similar price points. Indeed, a recently filed lawsuit suggests that’s why Costco decided to include the words “dolphin safe” on the label of its Kirkland Signature-brand White Albacore Tuna in Water: to get more people to buy its product, particularly those concerned with sustainability and animal welfare. Unfortunately, the case says that the “dolphin-safe” product is sourced via fishing methods that “seriously injure and kill thousands of dolphins and other marine life each year” and should never have been advertised as such. The complaint adds that conservation group Greenpeace in 2017 listed Kirkland Signature tuna among the bottom eight tuna brands based on sustainability and ethical concerns for ocean wildlife.
