Takata Corporation Defective Airbags

Experienced class action attorneys at Cafferty Clobes Meriwether & Sprengel LLP are investigating claims against airbag manufacturer Takata Corp. These airbags are defective and can cause explosions and propelled shrapnel in the case of deployment. At least four deaths have been attributed to this defect. Takata airbags are found in many Honda, Toyota, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, and Suburu vehicles. Many vehicles with these airbags have been recalled, but manufacturers do not have sufficient parts to replace them, forcing consumers to continue to be exposed to this very serious safety risk.

Garmin Nuvi Portable Navigation Device Litigation

In August 2013 plaintiff Brian Meyers brought an action on behalf of all United States residents who purchased Garmin Nuvi portable navigation devices. Garmin is the world’s largest manufacturer of GPS systems, and the Nuvi is its most popular portable model. Despite their “portable” label, however, Garmin sells Nuvi GPS systems containing defective lithium ion batteries that are likely to fail far sooner than expected, but after Garmin’s limited warranty has expired. Plaintiff alleges that he and other Class members were defrauded by Garmin because Garmin knew or should have known of this substantial defect. Plaintiff brings claims for violation of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty and unjust enrichment on behalf of himself and all US owners of Garmin Nuvi portable navigation devices. On January 24, 2014, the Court (The Honorable Carlos Murguia) issued an opinion denying in large part Garmin’s motion to dismiss the complaint. The Court held that the Kansas Consumer Protection Act, express warranty, implied warranty and unjust enrichment claims were properly pled. A copy of the Court’s opinion may be accessed here: Memorandum and Order.

If you are a Garmin Nuvi owner who has experienced battery failure, you may have legal recourse.

Plaintiff alleges that despite knowingly installing defective door locks in Accord vehicles, Honda sometimes charges affected owners over $1,000 to replace the locks.
