Class action lawsuit against Hyundai for windshield defects

“Lorenzo Ford and Tina Forehand (collectively the plaintiffs) recently filed a class action complaint against Hyundai Motor America (HMA) and Hyundai Motor Company (HMC), (collectively Hyundai or defendants) in Central California. The plaintiffs allege Hyundai manufactured, marketed, distributed, and sold its 2020 Palisade without disclosing to purchasers and lessees of its issue with windshields cracking, chipping, and otherwise spontaneously breaking. The plaintiffs are seeking a trial by jury along with financial compensation.

According to the class action complaint, the windshield issues cause dangers to safety and Hyundai refuses to admit the glass is defective. The automaker also allegedly refuses to offer a proper fix for the cracked windshields other than forcing Palisade owners to pay for replacement windshields that are also defective, according to the class action complaint.”

According to the complaint, Hyundai is being sued for breach of warranty and violations of various consumer acts. Some of the incidents reported state that when a pebble hit the windshield cracks would form and spread. The suit claims that Hyundai was aware of this issue but has done nothing to remedy the problem and provide compensation. Currently, Hyundai has not responded or commented on the matter.
