BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton law firm claims that Hyundai GV80s — the SUV Tiger Woods was driving at the time of his California crash — is unsafe and unrepairable.
Marcus W. Corwin of Corwin Law in Boca Raton just filed a Federal Class Action Lawsuit against Hyundai. The suit names Delray Beach resident Dr. Barbara Feinstein as the named plaintiff on behalf of the class, and accuses Hyundai of manufacturing a vehicle with “instability and subpar performance, including shaking, shuddering, vibrating and pulling.”
Feinstein, alleges the suit, leased a 2021 Genesis GV80, only to have it unusable for nearly half of the first 95 days of the lease. Hyundai, says Feinstein, has been unable to repair the issues.
According to an advisory issued by the law firm, “Hyundai is accused of promoting the GV80 luxury SUV despite being aware of dangerous defects affecting the vehicle’s drivability that are documented in Korean news media and current customer message boards.”
Florida’s Lemon Law requires vehicle owners to follow several procedures to obtain a refund or new vehicle, including arbitration in front of a three member panel. It was not immediately clear whether Dr. Feinstein — or any of the class members — engaged in the longstanding procedures set by the office of Florida’s Attorney General to resolve the alleged vehicle deficiencies.
