    For court updates see websites see pacer.gov under case number 2:13 – ml – 02424 – GW – FFM Hyundai -Kia fuel economy litigation.For more unbiased updates see “discussion” on YouTube channel “legal advocate 71” or see the website attorney-ethics-elderly-abuse.com. The Hyundai-Kia settlement is "proposed" and the court will review the proposed settlement in 2014 . The court will have final approval and the court could reject the settlement agreement and say that is not enough going to the car owners or the court could require the settlement agreement to include an anti-retaliation section.

    If the court approves the settlement in 2014, class members may still have the option to opt out of the settlement or go before the court with their grievances. It will be unfortunate if the court does not consider the fraud and retaliation that has already been proven and admitted to by Hyundai Motor America. Is it worth it for car owners to agree to $400 and possible waive their rights to any Hyundai warranty repairs in the further? The best bet may be to get rid of the Hyundai car due to Hyundai’s history of retaliation. Many car owners say they will not buy Hyundai-Kia because of Hyundai’s stated policy that they can deny service and seek your arrest if you seek service at their dealers. Based on documents filed with the court.

    Hyundai Motor America and Girard Gibbs are also named in a Los Angeles filed bankruptcy case. The State Bar of California and office of the state attorney general has been asked to revoke the license certification of two firms/dealers indirectly connected to the class action. Read the Toyota class action filed 2012 settlement agreement online to get an idea of what will happen if the Hyundai settlement is signed by the Judge. Class members received $30-$125 each, for damages and diminished value, while the CASH COW lawsuit awarded 25 law firms and 85 attorneys attorneys a whopping $227 million dollars (estimated).

    In a Inglewood, California small claims case 12S01314, a Hyundai car owner was able to get a judgment against a Hyundai dealer for $724 including court fees. A Hyundai dealer did not oppose a payout of $10,000 for the single Hyundai owner. This same car owner, by himself, sought $85 million dollars judgment against Hyundai Motor America, Los Angeles Central District case Johnson v Taylor et al. CV13-2264 FMO (MRWx). The proposed settlement byHagens Berman Sobel will give car owners at about $400, less than what the small claims court had already ruled a similar case worth. Hyundai also sought to pay the $724 themselves, thus bringing the potential value to $1400 for a single plaintiff, and the possibility of engine failure, facts that class action law firm Hagens Berman Sobel has ignored.
  • Class Action Update: [Part 1 of 2] Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro law firm know that in the same court district a Judge was inclined to grant entry of default against Hyundai for $85 million dollars, and this to a single class member plaintiff. Hyundai-Kia is now proposing only $353 to each class member. A Canadian class action asks for $10 million dollars. Along with the deceptive gas mileage claims, Hyundai was also sued in the class action for false advertising, breach of express warranty, fraud, unjust enrichment, reduced resale value, however the proposed settlement by Hyundai appears to offer $353 for the false gas mileage claims ONLY. There is no indication that Hyundai offers damages for false advertising, breach of express warranty, fraud, unjust compensation, and reduced resale value of the vehicle.
  • Class Action Update: [Part 2 of 2] Some plaintiffs may take Hyundai into a jury trial. I believe the proposed settlement should be rejected as too loo low and bad faith. Hyundai agent Inglewood Police said if you come to a Hyundai dealer for service you will be arrested and thrown in jail. The motion to certify the class is set for Jan. 23 in Los Angeles. If you do not want the payout of $353, you may have to put that in writing and the door may stay open for a jury trial against Hyundai. Next court hearings are Jan. 9 and Jan. 23. If you want to make your voice heard before those dates, and express what you feel class members are due $$$$, write Judge George H. Wu, Phone 213-894-0191, 312 North Spring Street 10th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90012-4701, and priority mail a copy to the attorneys Hagens, Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, Phone 213-330-7150, 301 N Lake Avenue Suite 203, Pasadena, CA 91101. Mention Case 2:13-ml-2424-GW-FFM.
