A website has been established to inform Class Members of their rights under a Nissan, Infiniti peeling paint class action settlement.
A settlement has been struck which, if approved, will resolve claims that the paint on Nissan and Infiniti vehicles peels prematurely. The settlement awaits final approval by the court.
While the website is live, it is not accepting claims yet. Top Class Actions will provide claim filing instructions as soon as they become available.
Meanwhile, viewers will receive an email notice when this article is updated with more information by using a free Top Class Actions account and clicking the “Follow Article” button at the top of the post.
Class Members include all those customers in the U.S. and U.S. territories who purchased a white-painted Nissan Rogue that was produced between Jan. 11, 2013 and April 23, 2013, and/or who purchased a white-painted Infiniti QX56 produced between Nov. 20, 2009 and Dec. 12, 2012.
The Nissan Rogue, Infiniti class action lawsuit was filed by Michelle Nelson in November 2017. She claimed that she purchased a used 2011 Infiniti QX56 with “Pearl White” paint for around $43,000.
Allegedly, there were around 68,000 miles on the vehicle when she purchased it. Nelson states that she purchased a 48,000 mile, 48-month extended warranty from a Nissan affiliate for $6,500.
Nelson says that on or around February 2017, she noticed that the paint on her vehicle began to fade, and the next month, the paint began to peel. According to the Nissan paint class action lawsuit, the peeling was caused by a defect that is common to many Nissan Rogue and Infiniti vehicles.
The Nissan peeling paint class action lawsuit alleged that Nissan was aware of the defect, but continued to sell the vehicles without warning customers of the defect.
Additionally, the Nissan class action lawsuit claims that Nissan failed to take responsibility of providing meaningful relief to customers who complained about the problem.
Nissan has not admitted any wrongdoing, but agreed to settle the false advertising claims to avoid the costs and risks of continuing to litigate.
If the settlement is approved, Class Members have a few options in the Nissan peeling paint class action settlement. The deadline to file a claim is Dec. 19, 2020. Customers who receive benefits will waive their right to pursue independent litigation against the company.
Customers may also exclude themselves from the settlement by Nov. 29, 2019. Customers who do this will not receive benefits, but will retain their rights to pursue independent litigation against the company over the issue. Class Members who do nothing will not receive benefits and will give up rights to sue the company about the issue.
Class Members may also object to the settlement by Nov. 29, 2019, or may attend a hearing about the fairness of the settlement on Dec. 19, 2019.
