Honda Infotainment Settlement Agreement Await Final Court Approval
Plaintiffs in the Honda Infotainment Class Action Suit are asking the final approval of the court to allow the settlement deal between them and Honda to push through.
Final Order From Judge Still Not Available
It is said that parties in the class action are awaiting the decision of a California federal judge as to whether they would accept or deny the settlement information with finality.
According to reports, the settlement amount is pegged at $33 million, and Honda has agreed to pay up the said figure to end the accusations brought up against it.
The settlement stemmed from a class action filed by pair Lesley and Tom Conti against the defendant American Honda Motor Co., Inc. The two argued that Honda sold a number of its models with purported defective infotainment systems.
They shared that a number of Honda Passport, Odyssey, and Pilot cars have faulty built-in infotainment systems that experience a multitude of issues, including producing startling noises, broken backup cameras, and the like.
As of writing, the Honda Infotainment Settlement has gained a preliminary approval status from the authorities.
