Case Overview

On October 24, 2022, consumers filed a proposed class action lawsuit against American Honda Motor Company in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, claiming the manufacturer millions of vehicles that contain a safety defect.

The suit claims that Honda’s 1.5-liter turbo direct injection engine, found in 2019-2023 Honda CR-V, 2019-2022 Honda Civic, and 2018-2022 Honda Accord vehicles, is prone to excessive oil dilution. Oil dilution occurs when fuel gets mixed into the engine oil, and results in scores of issues, including unlubricated engine components, reduced engine efficiency, excess engine wear, increased upkeep and repair costs, noxious gasoline fumes, and in the worst cases, catastrophic engine failure and stalling while driving.

On January 17, 2023, the case was transferred to the District of Minnesota where a related action was pending. On April 5, 2023, FeganScott attorney Jonathan Lindenfeld was appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee for the two related actions.

This case is in the middle of active ligation and discovery in this matter is ongoing.
