On January 18, 2013, Chimicles & Tikellis filed a proposed class action lawsuit in the District of New Jersey against Honda North America, Inc., American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and Honda Motor Company, Ltd. (collectively “Honda”) for alleged premature door lock actuator failure in model years 2007-2011 Honda CR-V vehicles. The complaint alleges that these models may contain a defect predisposing the door locks to not lock and/or not unlock electronically as a result of failed electronic door lock actuators. This problem may result in safety issues and expensive repairs to fix the door locking mechanism. This may also render some doors on the vehicles to become non-operational (i.e. unable to be unlocked and opened) from the exterior.
