Auto Defect Lawyers

Helping Keep Our Roadways Safe

Automobile defects can jeopardize driver safety and can lead to expensive and recurring repairs. Unfortunately, some car manufacturers do not always comply with consumer laws, for example, by not honoring their warranties or by concealing a known problem at the point of sale or repair.

Our auto lawyers represent consumers across the country who have bought or leased a defective car, truck, or motorcycle. We have litigated cases involving:

Past Successes

Honda $25 million for Honda and Acura owners with premature brake pad wear
Hyundai & Kia $225 in cash or $325 in dealer credits for owners of Hyundai and Kia cars with falsely advertised horsepower ratings
Hyundai Free engine inspections and repairs, warranty extensions, and reimbursements for past repairs and related costs
Mitsubishi & Chrysler $33 million for cash reimbursements and discount repairs for wheel rim problems
Chrysler Free fuel pump relay repairs, extended warranties, and reimbursements for rental cars and other related costs
