Several weeks ago, our terrific team, filed suit on behalf of 2008 – 2010 Honda Accord Owners regarding their Airbag systems (SRS). This system is not a Takata system, but is instead manufactured by Continental. We learned today that the issue is not limited to Honda at all.
Today, Continental announced a recall of those systems affecting several hundred thousand vehicles, not limited to Honda, but also affecting some Chrysler Fiat, Volkswagen, and Daimler/Mercedes Benz Models. Here is the link to the Autoblog article: http://www.autoblog.com/2016/02/04/continental-automotive-airbag-recall/
The amended complaint that we filed this afternoon is posted on our website, here: http://www.liggiolaw.com/resources/case-documents/
If you or a loved one owns or leases one of the affected vehicles, please be aware, and let them know. It may take some time to obtain relief, and they should be alerted to the fact that the airbag systems in their vehicle may not operate properly in the event of a crash where the airbag was intended to operate.
Our team members at Clark Fountain will be posting a press release regarding the suit, but it’s not posted yet. Here is their website, so you can visit to check: http://www.clarkfountain.com/
