Mitsubishi, Dodge, & Chrysler Class Action Settlement: Wheel Rim Auto Defect Lawsuit

Girard Gibbs and co-counsel filed class action lawsuits across the country, representing nearly 400,000 class members nationwide against Mitsubishi Motors North America Inc. and DaimlerChrysler Corp. The class action lawsuits alleged that Mitsubishi and Chrysler failed to tell their customers about the wheel rim problems, which posed a potential safety risk to consumers, even after learning of the problem. The class action lawsuits alleged violations of various California, Missouri, and Kansas consumer protection laws.
