The ongoing class action lawsuit, originally filed by Hakeem Hasan in Illinois Federal Court, against American Honda Motor Co., Inc. (Honda) is over, as the judge has dismissed the case. The 2019 suit centered on Hasan’s allegations that Honda was at fault for selling select SUVs with defective windshields that spontaneously crack.
The Honda CR-V class action lawsuit was dismissed after Hasan and Honda agreed to settle the case on an individual basis, according to court documents.
The action was dismissed without prejudice meaning it can’t be brought back to court.
The plaintiff, Hasan, filed the lawsuit in October stating that the Honda warranty administrator he had worked with acknowledged that the crack was due to a structural defect and not external impact and Honda subsequently allegedly refused to repair the windshield.
He also alleged that other Honda CR-V vehicle owners experienced a similar structural defect in their windshields. Hasan also claimed that the vehicle manufacturer knew about the alleged defects and continued to sell and market the vehicles without warning its customers for Honda CR-V 2017-2019 models.
