Honda Sunroof Defect Suit to Proceed
On July 5, 2022, the United States District Court for the Central District of California denied Honda’s motion to dismiss claims brought on behalf of purchasers and lessees of Honda vehicles with sunroofs prone to spontaneously shatter. When this alleged defect manifests, shards of glass can rain down on people in the vehicle, creating a safety hazard not only for the vehicle occupants but for others on the road as well.
The Court found that the plaintiffs adequately stated claims for multiple violations, including of California’s Unfair Competition Law and of the implied warranty of merchantability under the laws of several states.
