Lieff Cabraser is investigating alleged defects in the air conditioning systems of 2016-2019 Honda Civic vehicles. Reports indicate that the air conditioning systems in certain Honda vehicles do not function properly during ordinary and expected driving conditions. Complaints allege the 2016-2019 Civics have a common defect in their condenser and compressor that leaves the vehicles’ climate control air cooling non-operational.
Without working air conditioning, the Civics occupants are not only uncomfortable in warm conditions, but the failed cooling system can create a significant safety hazard, including as the vehicle’s windshield accumulates moisture during driving. Reports further allege that the malfunction in the Civic A/C condensers and compressors create risks for damage to other components in the vehicles’ systems.
One lawsuit claims the 2016-2019 Honda Civics were negligently designed and manufactured by Honda in that the air conditioning condenser is placed in a position that is highly vulnerable to contact from rocks, pebbles, and other normal road debris during ordinary driving on paved roadways. Despite the clear vulnerability and exposure of the condenser to such contact from debris, Honda allegedly failed to design the Civics in a manner that would provide protection to the condenser, such as with a simple guard or grill, or with materials that could withstand the ongoing debris contact.
Owners and lessees complain that despite the widespread nature of the problem, Honda refuses to cover condenser repairs under vehicle warranties.
