Kia Faces Class Action Lawsuit Due To Defective Parts

| Jan 29, 2013 | Firm News |

The lawsuit,  alleges that Kia Motors knowingly concealed a defect in the crank sprocket of its 2002-2009 Sorento models, leading to severe over heating, the release of debris, and subsequent loss of steering control, engine failure and the potential for a hazardous accident. Robinson et al v. Kia Motors America Inc. et al., Case No. 13-cv-00006

The plaintiffs also claim that Kia has been aware of the engine defect for several years, as evidenced by numerous online complaints, but has withheld this information from consumers while making numerous statements about the quality and reliability of the Sorento.

Additionally, the plaintiffs claim that Kia profits from the alleged Sorento engine defect by performing unnecessary parts replacements, computer reprogramming and software updates, despite knowing the true cause of the problem.

If you have bought a defective car and have suffered an injury as a result of the manufacturers negligence, please give my office, The Law Offices of Todd M.
