HONDA ISSUES NEW AIRBAG RECALL FOLLOWING CLARK FOUNTAIN CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT

Honda issued a new recall for Continental airbags affecting more than five million vehicles two weeks after attorneys Don Fountain and Poorad Razavi, along with co-counsel, Jeff Liggio and Geoff Stahl from Liggio Benrubi, filed a formal class action lawsuit against Honda North America, Honda of America Manufacturing, and Honda Trading America Corp., for the same issue. The recall was released on the same day that Honda released additional recalls for the defective Takata airbags, arguably burying the additional bad news. Repair parts for the recall will not be available until Fall. In addition to Honda, the Continental airbag recall vehicle population also includes Chrysler Fiat, Daimler, and Mercedes.

Following an in-depth investigation, our attorneys discovered that multiple 2008-2010 Honda vehicles are fitted with a defective Airbag Control Module (ACM) manufactured by Continental Automotive. The class action lawsuit, which covers 13 violations, was recently featured as a cover story in Daily Business Review.
