Two Porsche Owners Bring Class Action Against OEM for Alleged Visibility Issue

question manTwo California-based Porsche owners have filed a state class action lawsuit alleging their vehicles have a “windshield glare” visibility issue.

“This action arises out of a uniform problem in the class vehicles and their beige-colored dashboards, including, but not limited to, Luxor Beige, Sand Beige, or any other beige dashboard, which interferes with the ability of drivers to see the road,” reads the court documents. “This condition, caused by the reflection of light from the unusually light colored dashboards into the windshield, and then into the drivers’ eyes, can momentarily blind drivers or impair their ability to see the roadway. This windshield glare poses a clear, unreasonable safety risk.”

The two plaintiffs, Roy Jones and Alyce Rubinfeld, contend Porsche has been aware of the alleged windshield glare since 2011.

“Owners of the affected vehicles have a reasonable expectation that they should be able to see clearly through their windshields during normal and routine use of their vehicles. They do not expect Porsche to sell them a product that Porsche knew to cause an unsafe reflection of sunlight into the drivers’ eyes,” according to the court documents.

Plaintiffs are demanding a jury trial.
