Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator Class Action Lawsuit Over Air Vent Issue

Do you own a 2012-2017 model year Ford Expedition or Lincoln Navigator in which airflow is not being emitted from the floor vents? The firm is investigating certain Ford and Lincoln vehicles that have a defect in which there are system performance and air vent problems that the manufacturer is refusing to repair. This defect only allows airflow for the heater or AC to come from the dashboard console vents and does not allow hot or cold airflow to come out of the floor vents. If you have one of the affected vehicles in which the heating and or air conditioning (A/C) floor vents are not working and wish to find out what your rights in this action may be, please contact Gary S.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 “mmc_read failed” Defect Class Action Filed by KGG In Federal Court

KGG has filed a Consumer Class Action against Samsung on behalf of consumers who purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 which suffers from a fatal defect in its memory chip, leading to the dreaded “mmc_read failed” error. Once this defect manifests, the phone will frequently restart and fail to boot, and ultimately become inoperable. Many Note 4 owners are using the Wake Lock app as a temporary band aid fix, which appears to buy time before the memory chip completely fails, at the expense of additional battery usage. The only solution to the “mmc_read failed” error appears to be a motherboard replacement. Consumers who bought the Note 4, which went on the market in October 2014, at a cost of over $700 on most of the major U.S. carriers, thought that they were purchasing a premium and durable flagship phone, replete with high-end features such as 3gb of ram, a 5.7…

Tristar Pressure Cooker Defect Investigation by KGG

Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C., together with its co-counsel, are investigating a potential consumer class action against Tristar Products, Inc. (“Tristar”) alleging defects in a pressure cookers designed, manufactured, marketed, and sold online or through third-party retailers by Tristar. This defect pertains to the Power Pressure Cooker XL (“Pressure Cooker”), model Number PPC-770. Tristar inaccurately advertises that the Pressure Cooker has a “built-in safety feature” which is designed to prevent the lid from opening until the pressure is released from the appliance. This model Pressure Cooker inaccurately indicates that the built-up pressure in the appliance has been released leading the consumer to believe that it is safe to open the lid when in fact, it is not. Despite the alleged “safety feature,” a defective gasket actually allows the lid to be opened when the built up pressure is still contained within the appliance causing the scalding hot contents to rupture…

VOLKSWAGEN Water Pump Defect Class Action

The firm is currently litigating a putative class action involving a potential defect in the water pumps of 2008 — 2014 model year Volkswagen and Audi vehicles equipped with the 2.0L TSI / TFSI engine. This suit alleges that the engines in these vehicles are prone to experiencing premature failure of their water pump components before the end of the useful life of the vehicles and well before consumers reasonably expect any such failure to occur. The water pump defect also subjects class engines to coolant loss and engine overheating which could lead to catastrophic engine failure. The suit seeks reimbursement of the cost of repair and/or replacement of the defective water pumps.

Volkswagen & Audi Timing Chain Defect Investigation by KGG

  The firm is currently investigating possible defects in timing chain tensioning systems installed in certain VW models, including the following: Audi A3, A4, A5, Volkswagen CC, Beetle, EOS, Golf/GTI, Jetta, Passat, Sports Wagon, and Tiguan (the “Subject Vehicles”). This defect involves 2009 through 2012 2.0 TSI engines and Audi 3.2 or 4.2 Engines ,which are the VW/Audi primary four or six cylinder gasoline engine for the U.S. market during this time period. The tensioner one way ratchet/pawl design is supposed to allow the hydraulic tensioner pistons to only move outward from the tensioner body in steps to adjust for chain strength and chain rail wear. The design of this cheap metal pawlretainer chip is insufficient to keep the tensioner piston from being forced back into the body under certain conditions usually when the engine reaches 30-50,000 miles plus. It appears that the evidence demonstrates VW/Audi knew of the problem…
